Little Reminder!

 Lovelies!!

I'm wishing you a Sunday full of loveliness!!


Don't forget:
...Sundays are the best days for extreme laziness and lounging!!

...You are extremely talented and wonderful in all ways!

...When you believe in yourself, anything is possible!

...It's crucial that you pamper yourself at least once a day!

...Life is happier when you put a positive spin on frustrating situations!

...Being positive and happy all the time is unrealistic!

...When you are happy, let it show!! Share your joy with others!

...Your everyday life can be turned into an adventure by doing things that are unexpected and exciting!

...Doodling is quite therapeutic!

...Always making your decisions based on the expectations and opinions of others will lead to dreary regrets and unhappy situations! Make decisions based on your wants, needs, and dreams!

...You should be honest with yourself and with everyone who matters to you! 

...People cannot read your mind! If you are upset about something, need something, or expect something from them, you need to speak up! Even when that is difficult!

...Being shy is ok!

...Being spunky and outgoing is ok too!!

...You should accept your whole self, even if you don't love every aspect of yourself!

...Eating an entire box of chocolate candies will not end the world as your know it!

...Small gestures like smiling at a stranger really do make a difference!

...You are important, you matter, and your life is irreplaceable! Never take a second for granted!


♥!!

I have a new blog button!!!
Let me know if you want to swap buttons!!

What's Inside My Handbag??

HIYA Lovelies!!
How is everyone doing this week??

I never post pictures of myself on here, but I'm having a really good hair day! I also want to start posting pictures of myself every once in a while to help me with my self-acceptance!



I just bought some Revlon Photo Ready Foundation and I adore it!
I usually only wear tinted moisturizer and some bare minerals powder, but I really love this makeup! It doesn't feel heavy on my face and it stays put all day. My skin is combination oily and dry, so I have to compensate for that when applying! I have a clear complexion, but I also applied this to one of my friends who has acne scarring and she looked amazing with it on!!! I'm going to do a makeup post sometime soon because I just adore anything that deals with makeup and I would love to hear about the products that you use!

Erica Leigh tagged me in her "everything but the kitchen sink" post and asked me to share what I carry in my purse! I just cleaned out my purse a few days ago so you won't have to see all the gum wrappers, empty water bottles and granola bar wrappers! This teal handbag is one of my favorites! I bought it last summer in Edinburgh, Scotland at Accessorize which is my favorite accessories store ever! I need to use it less because I'm afraid that it might start to become worn.

1.Keys! On my favorite Domo lanyard! I also have an Ugly Doll key chain named Mr. Kasoogi!
2. Planner! It has little pineapples all over it which I thought was pretty quirky!
3. My mini pharmacy! I have advil, claritin-d, pseudophed, band-aids, mini toothbrushes, upset stomach medicine, glucose tablets and lots of chapstick!
4. Hello Kitty Pen Pouch! It is filled with lots of gelly roller and glitter pens!
5. Wallet! Very organized!
6. My self-love bible! Perfect for jotting down a quote here or a random thought there!
7. Extra fruit sensations gum in strawberry banana! I'm a gum-aholic!
8. Lock for my gym locker! It always falls and hits my foot! Owie!
9. iPhonie!! I bought a Hello Kitty case for it over the winter break!
10. My self-love totem! To remind me to love myself!
11. My travel make-up case! It's full of lipstick, a blush and powder palette, and an eyelash curler!
12. Sweet Pea foaming hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works! The foamy hand sanitizer is lots of fun!
13. Accu-check glucose meter and lancet...not fun!

There it is! Nothing really very interesting!

Ok, I've decided to tag some of my favorite blogs!! Jamie, Lindsay, Lex, Cait, Lauren, TAG! You're it!! Lemme see what's in your handbag/purse!! Of course if you have already done a post like this, don't worry about it!
Please feel free to make a post about what you carry inside your purse even if you weren't tagged! Please let me know if you do so I can check it out!

Sending you all lots of positive vibes and warm fuzzies!!
♥!

Make Mondays Marvelous!!

 Happy Monday!!

Reserved Raccoon wants you to make your Monday MARVELOUS!

Reserved Raccoon lives in a very quaint tree house built in a massive oak tree deep in the woods.  He is a very shy creature and often has to get to know you before he shows his friendly side. Once you makes friends with Reserved Raccoon, he will invite up to his tree house for a lovely tea party! He likes to serve Scottish Breakfast tea and raspberry scones! Yummy!

Mondays are normally dreary so it take twice the effort to infuse your day with magic and positive energy! Wake up and spend the morning in bliss with your favorite breakfast, lots of happy music, a cup of tea, and some interpretive dancing around your home while brushing your teeth!

Be silly! Walk with that extra bounce in your step and share a smile with everyone you encounter! Say something positive and complimentary to anyone who is down in the dumps or appears to be having a case of the Mondays! Make this day count!!

Lindsay over at Pixies and Bears gave me this award!!
 Thanks Sweetie!
She has the cutest blog! You should go visit her!!

I'm supposed to give this to 15 bloggers, but I'm afraid that I might give it to someone who has already received it! So instead I'm going to give out some of my own awards later this week!!

Mwha! ♥!


p.s. Hope you like the doodle this week! I started drawing a rabbit, but it looked pretty ridiculous so I canned it! I need to post all the failure doodles sometime and give you all a big laugh!
