Pretty in Pink

"I believe in manicures. 
I believe in overdressing. 
I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. 
I believe in pink. 
I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls.
 I believe that tomorrow is another day, 
I believe in miracles."

Weekly Inspiration :: Bravery

“Don't be afraid of your fears. They're not there to scare you. 
They're there to let you know that something is worth it.” 
~ C. JoyBell C.

 Feeling fear in times of great change or tribulation is only natural.
 In life, we unfortunately must experience things that scare us, or that make us feel powerless and out of control. 
But our fears do not exist to halt us in our tracks. 
Instead they should serve as a means to realize how strong we truly are, and as a motivating force to help us fight as hard as we can to be happy. 
Things may not always go as planned, but having faith in yourself and in knowing that you are willing to push on regardless of what comes your way, this is the true meaning of bravery. 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We celebrate all who have bravely fought this disease. Your bravery is an inspiration.

Weekly Inspiration :: Survival

"We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself
the means of inspiration
and survival."
~ Winston Churchill

It is only a fact that suffering exists in life. While there are times when we feel we simply cannot carry on, suffering can be the well from which hope and survival spring. When faced with lifes obstacles, find your inner strength and never give up without a good fight.
Use your fears and sufferings as a motivator to carry on, become stronger, and win those unforeseen battles that interfere with your happiness.
Always remember that you are a survivor.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we celebrate all of the fighters and survivors who have battled this disease.

Weekly Inspiration :: Courage

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.

"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, 
 but the triumph over it.
The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, 
but he who conquers that fear."
~ Nelson Mandela

Fearing the difficult things that come our way is not a sign of weakness.
It is only natural to fear the unknown, but within each of us is the ability to conquer that fear with determination, strength, and courage. Courage is the ability to look fear in the face, recognize it as a challenge, and push through it to achieve what we think is impossible. 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Wishing strength and love to all the courageous women battling this disease, and to those that have loved and lost sisters, friends, and mothers to breast cancer.

Weekly Inspiration :: Hope

"When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you,
till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer,
never give up then, 
for that is just the place and time
 that the tide will turn."
-Harriet Beecher Stowe

Hope is the thing that keeps us going. No matter how many challenges come your way, 
your hope and strength will always get you through.
 Trust in yourself, think positive thoughts, and lean on your loved ones
when you need an extra dose of hope.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Sending strength, love and hope to all of our sisters and friends who have battled or
lost loved ones to this disease.

Weekly Inspiration :: Passion

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer.
Always remember you have within you
the strength, 
the patience, 
and the passion
to reach for the stars
to change the world."
~ Harriet Tubman 
Passion is the best driving force. Allowing ourselves to follow our passions is one 
of the most important things in life. Whatever drives you to be the best version of yourself that you can be, whatever keeps you going at the worst possible moments, whatever that one thing is that makes you truly happy, the best thing you can do for yourself is to pour yourself into your passions.
Allow yourself to dream larger than life, and use your passion to make those dreams come true.

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

Weekly Inspiration :: New Beginnings

“Some changes look negative on the surface 
but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life 
for something new to emerge.” 
~ Eckhart Tolle

Change is always slightly scary. It sometimes means uncertainty and comes with its own set of challenges. But it also brings about new beginnings, a chance for a fresh start, and the possibility for reinvention. Allowing yourself to face change with an open mind and heart takes courage, and gives you the opportunity to discover your true strength. 
Embrace all of the changes that come your way, even the ones that might seem scarier than others. 
Your perseverance will take you to new and exciting places.

Weekly Inspiration :: Dreams

"Throw your dreams into space like a kite, 
and you do not know what it will bring back, 
a new life, a new friend, 
a new love, a new country."
~ Anais Nin 

Our dreams and hopes may seem difficult to achieve at times, 
but there is no greater failure than not attempting to accomplish them.
We must allow ourselves to propel our hopes into the universe, sending out a signal for 
change and opportunity.
Bring your dreams to fruition. Fear is the only enemy.

Weekly Inspiration :: Today is a Gift

"Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, 
but today is a gift. 
That's why it's called the present."
~ Bil Keane 

Sometimes it is easy to feel plagued by the stress of yesterday and the pressures of tomorrow.
Its difficult not to think ahead and try to plan every waking moment. 
The truth is that we can't plan every moment. Life will take its course however it see's fit
and sometimes you just have to roll with the punches.
Try to see life's uncertainty as a gift, as a daily surprise waiting to thrill you.
Each moment is precious. Live today as though you have no control over the future.

Weekly Inspiration :: The Feeling of Beautiful

"Although beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, 
the feeling of being beautiful exists solely in the mind of the beheld."
~ Martha Beck

Rather than waiting for someone to tell you how beautiful you are, try telling yourself. Look at
yourself in the mirror and just say it. While we all have insecurities about our looks, true beauty is something that comes from within; a light, a glow, something shown through a smile or through the eyes. Part of that comes from confidence and knowing that you are a beautiful soul, a gift to the universe. Remind yourself every day of just how beautiful you really are...the rest of the world will catch on soon enough.

Weekly Inspiration :: Harmony

"Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. 
Always aim at purifying your thoughts 
and everything will be well."
~ Mahatma Gandhi
Sometimes our mind can be a very cluttered place. Thoughts constantly racing, anxieties and anticipation, lists of to-do's and things to remember. But if we can find that one moment in our day to do whatever it is that makes us feel calm or centered, we will be doing the whole world a service.
Maintaining a clear mind and setting a path for yourself creates positive energy and a sense of balance, as well as overall harmony. 
Treat yourself well and you will be well.

Weekly Inspiration :: Break the Rules

"If you obey all the rules, 
you miss all of the fun."
~ Katherine Hepburn

Life is crazy sometimes. Chaos becomes routine, we build boundaries for ourselves
in order to maintain balance and set rules for ourselves. But every once in a while, its just more fun to break the rules...even the ones we make for ourselves.
Every once in a while its ok to cheat on your diet, skip a work out to go shopping, call in sick to enjoy the sunshine, or dip into your savings for that dream vacation. While having a routine and rules is all fine and well, sometimes you just gotta shake things up a bit and live life a little differently. 
Breaking the rules every now and then can instill a sense of confidence and 
independence that sometimes gets lost in everyday life. Plus, sometimes its just fun to let your inner bad girl out every now and then.

Weekly Inspiration :: Enlightenment

"Enlightenment is always there. Small enlightenment will bring great enlightenment. If you breathe in and are aware that you are alive—that you can touch the miracle of being alive—then that is a kind of enlightenment." 
~ Thich Nhat Hahn 

Something as simple as a deep breath can change who we are in a single moment. With all of the frustrations, tasks, and emotions involved in a single day, a deep breath can help us feel centered, focused, and alive. Whenever you start to feel overwhelmed or flustered, inhale as deep as you can and then let all of the days stress flow out of you as you exhale. This will clear your mind and allow you to feel enlightenment every day.

Weekly Inspiration :: Truth and Beauty

"The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity 
in which we are permitted 
to remain children all our lives."
~ Albert Einstein

Finding beauty in everyday things and moments provides us with 
an opportunity to see the world with new eyes each day. 
Allow yourself to give in to that sense of wonder that comes with noticing every detail of your surroundings, of finding mystery and beauty and inspiration in every part of your day.
Look at the world through a child's eyes and find something new and beautiful to love each moment.

Weekly Inspiration :: Strength and Courage

"We gain strength, courage, and confidence
by each experience in which we really stop
to look fear in the face...
we must do that which we think we cannot."
~ Eleanor Roosevelt

In life, the only thing truly stopping us from accomplishing our goals
is fear. Fear of failing, fear of losing, fear of not making it on the first try. While these are all rational thoughts, rather than letting fear shut you down, allow it to become a driving force 
to help you accomplish your dreams. Winning wouldn't be fun if it came easy, and lessons are less easily learned when you get something right the first time. Fear is a reality but it doesnt have to be the only reality.  Find your courage and face the unknown with an open heart and mind. You will accomplish more than you think.

Jenni Kayne Pre-Fall Collection

California based designer Jenni Kayne brought her signature West Coast cool 
to her Pre-Fall 2013 collection with a relaxed, tailored feel mixed with a casual femininity, and bold print. Sophisticated, yet with a tomboy edge, Kayne's Pre-Fall collection was inspired by quirky 90's fashion, and is reminiscent of fashion icons such as Cher Horowitz from the movie "Clueless". 
Silhouettes include oversized office-appropriate blazers and coats, ultra cool cigarette style trousers, and a sexy, sleek bias cut gown. Kayne's use of bright coral and sky blue perfectly represents the changing of the seasons, and the splash of leopard print carries the collection into fall while adding an element of savoir faire. Kayne's signature d'orsay flat completes the collection as a final stamp of relaxed refinement.
