HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Be the Reason a Stranger Smiles Today

Hey, guys! It’s been a minute! Yesterday while I was driving, I passed a store front with a sign that said “Be the reason a stranger smiles today.” and I loved it so much I knew I had to write a blog post about it! Today there are so many hateful things going on in the world, we need to make our own positivity! Making a stranger smile is so special because you don’t know what they’re going through, and they may have really needed that smile. So how the eff do you make a stranger smile?? Give them a compliment! There are a million ways to make a stranger...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Embracing your Qualities, Not your Flaws

Hey, guys! Today I want to talk about embracing yourself and embracing your best qualities, instead of focusing on your flaws! We live in a weird society where everyone is constantly spreading the message that “everyone is beautiful” and that we should “embrace our flaws”, and yet no one follows the rule for themselves? We’re all spreading this great advice, meanwhile, no one is listening to it for ourselves!! I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t like my flaws -that’s why they’re called flaws. I know no one else views them the way I do, but it’s hard not to notice them when it’s a part of you!...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Finding your Community

Hey, guys! Today’s post was sparked by a conversation I had with my best friend about a week ago, and then randomly again with my boyfriend just days later. We were talking about how every hobby or profession comes with its own little world, as long as you dig deep enough! For example, there is a massive “beauty” community on Instagram, and we all share products, hashtags, ideas, inspiration, and even certain terms that someone who wasn’t involved in the community wouldn’t know about. On the opposite end, there’s a kayaking community of people who know everything about kayaking, from obscure apparel brands to the rules of the water, and...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: I Hate the Rain but the Flowers Love it

Hey, guys! All I have to say about all of this rain is UGH. Where did the sun go???? I’m all for a nice romanticized summer rainstorm- the kind at the end of an extremely hot week when it starts down-pouring even though it’s still hot outside and it sounds #SoZen, but this!! It’s been raining for 40 days and 40 nights. I’m ready to be tan, to start wearing shorts, to go to the BEACH.  Everyday I’m so annoyed with the weather…and then I remember, it’s not just humans living on this earth. The plants, trees, rivers, they all need this rain. The rain is more than some picturesque...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Summer Appreciation Post

Hey, guys!! – Just a little Summer appreciation post for ya today – This morning I woke up at 9:15 in my tiny little bedroom.  My windows were wide open, the fan was blowing, and the sun was blasting through my lace curtains. The air felt like summer air, ALL the birds were chirping outside, and I had missed texts from my mom and sister inviting me to the beach. It felt like summer was telling me “I’M HERE”, and it was an overwhelmingly euphoric way to wake up! – It all got me thinking about how happy Summer makes me, so I made a list of all of my...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Monday Inspiration

Hey guys! I wanted to share a quick little inspirational quote I came across the other day while reading Sophia Amoruso’s book Nasty Galaxy.  “Until you’re ready to look foolish, you’ll never have the possibility of being great” – Cher  – I thought this quote was perfect to start off the week – I love this quote because it’s so true! Most of the time being great and successful is exclusively associated with positivity and feelings of happiness, but sometimes just going for it and making ourselves uncomfortable can produce the best results! Being uncomfortable can feel like you’re working in the wrong direction, but you will get through all uncomfortable...
