Five Habits Of A Confident Woman 

It’s almost the end of this year and if there’s something I’ve learned it’s how to be a more confidant woman. I thought I’d share five habits that can help you be more confident too. As well as some inspo for a transition Fall look! Well let’s get right into the habits! 

1. Seek Challenges. Not everything you do will be a piece of cake, and that’s OK, so don’t let challenges stop you. If there’s something you want to do, like maybe start up that blog you’ve been thinking about or change your career path, start that new workout class, it’s never too late! I’ve found if that’s where your passion is you’re most likely to succeed and be happy while doing it. If it’s not what you thought it would be, don’t give up, keep going and learn from your mistakes to eventually get where you want to be. 

2. Do NOT compare yourselves to others. This can be such a toxic habit to have and these days it can be so easy to fall in this habit. Instead of comparing and feeling jealous of what other girls have you can make the choice of supporting women, networking with them. You might even spark a brand new friendship. Getting inspired by other women is a much better habit to have! I love finding gorgeous girls who have similar styles as I do and following along in their life I always get inspired to try a new look or visit a new place!  

3. Make Goals. Making goals is so important but simply deciding you want a new car can seem so impossible, you have to have steps in achieving that goal. So you can start with saving a certain amount each month until you get the amount you need for that new car. Trust me! Once you mark that first check mark in the very first step to a new car or whatever it is you want, you gain a bar of confidence in your life! 

4. Respect others and yourself. Okay, this is so important in every women’s life. I think respecting others should be a part of everyone’s life and if done, it would stop so many fights in our world but I suppose it’s easier said then done. 

I’ve never been one to say anything negative about another girl or person in general. Maybe it’s the Jesus living in me or the desire to be a righteous women in the eyes of God, like Noah, being right with God and right with man he found favor in the eyes of God because of his righteousness. Who am I to push down another person for any reason at all even behind their backs. I will always respect others upfront and behind their back. 

Then there is respecting yourself, be confident in who you are, what you believe in and always think twice about making decisions. One simple way of respecting yourself is by elliminating cuss words from your vocabulary I’ve never been one to use them and I’ve found that it’s keeps me positive in my everyday life which has led to confidence. 

5. Fake it and you’ll make it. Oh my goodness, this is definitely something to live by! Recently I went from working in an office, sitting on a desk, in front of a computer almost ALL day, being basically all to my self besides meetings to all of a sudden, working with children! I’m pretty good with kids but I’m not great so I was so nervous! I had a week of intensive training to prepare but still felt totally unprepared! Lol Receiving my very first patient was the scariest thing of my life but I knew the parents didn’t know their child was my first patient so what did I do? You guessed it. I faked it and I’ve made it, so cheesey but it’s true. I went in feeling so nervous but with practice and time, I’m confident in what I’m doing. Never go in doubting yourself because your mind is so powerful and can bring you down. Instead go in telling yourself “you can” and you’ll do great in whatever you do. 
Habits 1, 3, and 5 are ones I’ve experienced this year intensely and the others are just a part of my everyday life. My list of habits can go on so I’ll have to share more later but for now you can try these out and let me know how they work for you! 😉 

As always, thank you for stopping by and I hope you follow along to get more inspo in life and style! 😘 Love, Elle.

Sunday’s Best

Here’s another Sunday look, my favorite style to wear brought to you by Target fashion! I know, how cute are these pieces which happen to be very affordable and sold at your local target! I’m going to be honest, I haven’t browsed through the clothes at Target since being in middle school but the other day I was picking up some plain white T Shirts my boyfriend needed so I had to pass by the women’s clothes to get to the men sections (I’m telling you I never even bothered looking at Target clothes, I go straight to home decor or makeupalley). I saw this bright yellow pleated skirt on a mannequin and thought it was the most darling skirt ever so I picked it up and continued to look. I found this button up that didn’t have my size so I got the XL but thought it would be absolutely adorable with the sleeves rolled up and tied in the front. As soon as I tried it on I thought it was so effortless, so parisian-girl inspired. I pictured myself wearing this with a neck scarf some nice denim shorts or denim jeans the options are endless.As for my look it was achieved and much cuter than expected! You’ll definitely be spotting me in womens clothing in the future. I paired my outfit with some dainty jewelry and simple accessories that went perfectly with the outfit. If this were an everyday look, I’d switch the shoes for some sandals or if I were in Paris I’d switch the shoes for some cute sneakers. Thanks for stopping by.

Love, Elle.

6 Ways To BEAT The Midweek Slump And Feel Energized EVERY Morning! 

It’s Wednesday and you’re almost there, I totally get it! You feel like you might just collapse and can’t wait for the weekend. If you’re always feeling this way then I have 6 easy tips for you to beat the slump and make it through the rest of the week strong and energized!

1. No staying up late! This one can be tough if you have that one favorite show to watch or you’re simply just a night owl, whatever the case you have to make the biggest effort to put your electronics away and go to sleep. Try sleeping masks, they work wonders if you have a lot of moonlight peeking through the curtains.

2. Get your caffeine fix! If you’re still feeling tired, try some caffeine. My favorite way to power up is with a iced green tea latte with extra matcha powder!  It’s refreshing and gives me that boost I need!

3. Wake up early to stretch or do some sort of exercise! This one not only wakes you up but it also makes you feel great about yourself! Keep this up and waking up earlier for that run will get easier and easier as time goes on.

4. Have a big healthy breakfast! My favorite meal of the day! Indulge on that breakfast, after all you did go on that run this morning and throughout the day you’ll be burning those toast calories right off!

5. Take a fresh shower every morning to wake up!  I used to hate morning showers because it meant having to blow dry my hair and that takes way too long! Now that I run every single morning I have to take a shower every single day because I’m like a sweat machine🙈 TMI, sorry guys! I’ve been wearing a bun basically the whole week so it’s been working out!

6. Listen to some feel good music as you do the things above!  As I so do everything above I always play some feel good, wake up, be happy jams! As I sing and dance my morning away they help me start my day with a positive attitude!

Those are my top 6 tips for beating the midweek slump! Let me know if you have any others I can try out and thank you for stopping by! 😘

Faith > Fear

Hi everyone, I have a new addiction brewing, T-shirts with meanings! I’m really not a Tshirt wearing kind of girl but recently I love a good Tee with an amazing verse or saying on it! I’m also pretty casual during the week so I love pairing them with jeans or a skirt! When this company reached out to me and Felix we were so excited to twin and wear them together! These shirts are actually meant for working out 🏋 and we will definitely be wearing these on our runs with the pups but we thought a casual outfit for the shoot with these shirts would be cool too! 👍🏻 Let’s be real, we don’t run too often together 🙊 so wearing these on a casual day out is more our style. We love the material of these shirts, I can tell they’ll last through many workouts and wears. I love this verse on these shirts, it reminds us to continue on with the Lord because everything else will eventually perish which can be so scary sometimes, but with faith, with God, everything will be fine. Here is a little bit about Flyte, “FLYTE is about more than simply selling supplements and apparel. We promote a lifestyle that encourages the bridging of faith and fitness in a culture that finds it difficult to see how the two can connect. The world of fitness is saturated with messages of individualistic empowerment and encourages self-centered gain for self-advancing purposes. FLYTE exists to glorify God by being a light in this spiritually dark industry that cares much about profits and recognition but little for the wellbeing of its consumers. We seek to encourage physical health unto even greater spiritual health as we shift the emphasis away from mere personal gain to impacting the lives of people who, like Alex once did, might find themselves in a dark place and in need of a light.” How encouraging is that!?! There are many other styles and products to try so I will link them below, I know you’ll love them!

Sunday’s Best

Hello, lately I’ve been looking forward to the weekend more and more, not because I need a break from my job but because I get to dress up! During the week I run every single morning so doing my hair just doesn’t happen, I usually make some type of wet sleek bun or braids depending on the day. I work with children most of the day so being comfortable is necessary, I find myself going for fun work chinos in case I want to take my session with the child to the floor. Sometimes I do opt for a midi skirt since it allows me to sit comfortably as well but I don’t want to be restricted so it’s always something very flowy and long. Heels? Nope. I wear flats, or sandals that most of the time get taken off during the day. I look professional when the parents show up but once it gets to the middle of the session I want to be comfortable working with the child. Wearing heels is now a thing for the weekends! Now getting to my outfit, how cool is the skirt?! I saw it on asos.com, on sale and thought it would be such a cool piece to have! I also snatched this bodysuit because a girl can never have too many. They are perfect for skirts or jeans because they stay tucked in at all times! I  went for classic nude accessories, shoes and bag. Overall such a fun classic outfit. Thanks for stopping by.

Love, Elle.
