Dove's Real Beauty Sketches Campaigns

Hello Monday & Hello sweet friends!

This Monday is already off to a crazy start, but I wanted to stop in & share this video with all of you. I watched this over the weekend + it really opened my eyes to just how beautiful we really are, because we are ALL gorgeous. 

Share this video with one of your friends today, they just might need it!



Hello, sweet friends! I hope you all had a lovely + productive weekend. I spent the weekend relaxing, catching up on work & trying to be as productive as possible. Friday after work, I stopped by trader joe's & picked up some pretty blooms to help brighten the rainy day we were having. & When I got home I was over joyed to find a little package in my mail box from Lara Casey. This gorgeous print says it all & is so inspirational.  It kinda put the pep in my step, if I do say so myself.

I have to thank my social media free weekend + my Lara Casey quote for helping me get stuff done. I can't say that it was easy not wanting to constantly check instagram, twitter or facebook but it truly makes you think twice about how much time you really spend on it throughout the day. I caught myself wanting to check my phone c o n s t a n t l y & realized just how much I need to change this little habit. Most of the weekend I left my cell phone up stairs when N & I had friends over or when we were trying to spend quality time together. I even left it in the car when we went out to eat. Not having my cell phone around all the time made me conscious of how often N is actually on his cell phone too & how annoying it can be when we are in the middle of a conversation or doing something together! I had to hold back many of times from getting upset with him for being on his cell phone all the time because I was that girl (& am that girl every other day of the week!). I hope to make these social media free weekends more regular & really learn to be myself without this little device. How did you all spend your weekend? Have you ever tried to go social media or technology free?

Enjoy your beautiful Monday. I got a surprise day off -- so see ya tomorrow! x

yesterday i said i would do it tomorrow.

you know how yesterday you said you would do it tomorrow?! yeah we have all done it. well i feel like it is a daily thing for me. either i say: tomorrow i will start my quiet time. tomorrow i will finish my paper. tomorrow i will call my grandmother. tomorrow i will go to bed early. tomorrow i will go to the gym. tomorrow i will start running. tomorrow i will start writing that blog post i have been meaning to write. tomorrow i will clean my room. tomorrow i will dance in my underwear while getting ready for the day. tomorrow i will eat healthier. tomorrow i will go to the grocery store. tomorrow i will smile more & forgive more & love more. tomorrow i will be happy for what Christ has given me. tomorrow i will learn to love unconditionally. tomorrow i will have a better attitude. tomorrow i will be happy for today. tomorrow -- i will do it tomorrow.

im so {over} saying i will do it tomorrow. i {need} to learn to do it today.  because everyday i don't do something i fall even more behind in doing what i need & want to do. i need & want to be happy. & i have the choice to make sure i do just that. i am so {over} being unhappy because i fail at doing things i say i am going to do. 

so here is to doing it today. not tomorrow.

go do it. start today. you will thank yourself for it.
so join the link-up & let others know what what you have done today/this week that you said you were going to do yesterday, last month, or last year. be someone elses motivator.
