Self Love Sundays: Light a Candle

Welcome to Self Love Sundays! 

Sundays are for winding down and gearing up for the week ahead.  The most important thing that carries you through the week is YOU.  Sundays are the perfect day for self love and making sure you are taken care of before you answer E-mails, return phone calls and get into the rush of Monday mornings.

The rain today in Salt Lake that called for a yellow pair of rain boots and a good book soon gave way to a full blown blizzard.  The snow piled up and the wind whipped, taking the power with it. 

My immediate reaction as I traded my slippers for heels to go out for the night was one of dismay.  The house was pitch black and nothing could be seen.  I fumbled around for some candles which I finally found and lit as I finished getting ready by candlelight to go out for the night. 

With twenty minutes remaining until I had to leave, I sat down on the sofa to catch the nightly news of my friends on Facebook when I realized the power outage, of course, meant no power to our Internet router.

With my phone charging in the other room, I gave up and just stared at the candles.  I thought about how I needed this moment of nothingness to check in with myself.  My thoughts, feeling and actions for the upcoming week could be pondered.  I hadn’t felt this still and at peace in a long time.  As I continued to watch the flicker of the candle, I was reminded of the fact that it shouldn’t take a power outage to give myself some much needed “me time”.

To give yourself some self love this Sunday….light a candle, shut of your cellphone and turn of the lights.  You would be surprised at how twenty minutes unedited with yourself can RENEW your soul.

Deal Day Thursday! The Juciest Sweater!!!!

There’s only one good thing about cold weather and that one good thing is SWEATERS!!!!! I can’t think of anything better to wear on a chilly winter day than a cozy, comfy, juicy sweater! When I was looking for the deal of the day I couldn’t believe this find!! It’s called the Plaited shawl-collar cardigan and it’s from Gap! Originally $79.95, but in this neutral color it’s on sale for only $34.99!

What I love about this sweater is that 1, it is soooooo soft and 2, it can be worn with so many different looks!! The splash of stripes makes it so versatile! When I was at Gap I tried it on with a really pretty tank top (also on sale marked down 50% to just $24.99!) and these amazing red jeggings to give it a holiday pop! But you can also rock this sweater with a more casual look by layering a thinner sweater underneath and spicing it up with some funky accessories and a beret!

I still hate winter but this sweater does make it a little….ok, this sweater makes it a LOT more bearable!! So, if we must be cold………..let’s at least be cold in a fabulous sweater! Happy shopping and happy Thursday!!!!!

Video Blog…Watch me on the Dish!!

As you all know I do fashion segments on TV. I am so lucky I get these opportunities as a fashion stylist. Working for almost 4 years night and day trying to go all I could to meet people and show others my talent seemed like it would never pay off. But then it did. I get to share with everyone know what I love and hopefully help them feel so beautiful. I feel very blessed and am thankful to all the models who get up early and come help me with these shows! Love each one of you! So here is one of my shows check it out all about the hat.
