Fashion Friday Featuring: Harkin Headquarters

Well hello you gorgeous thing you, welcome to 2015! May this year be even better than last and may your fashion continue to grow in its fabulousness.

I must say I am was really excited to post this first Fashion Friday of the New Year. This is the time everyone is making goals and setting out to accomplish them, usually these goals deal with health and wealth. But I believe having fashion resolutions is just as important. This is why I could not be more thrilled to feature Harkin Headquarters. What makes Harkin Headquarters so special you might ask? Well first off the products offered are incredibly stylish, but the core value of HHQ is that of supporting independent artisans. In a world of mass production and shoddy quality its nice to know there are still businesses out there that care about people, quality, and of course style.

The variety of products offered by HHQ is phenomenal from ponchos to headdresses, tapestries to bracelets, this kickass company has it all. Including Keith Harkin merch, which was so wonderfully modeled by my stunning beauty of a sister, and okayishly modeled by me as well 😉

Lifting Your Spirit.

 This past week I was going through a bit of a blue funk, you know the ones that show up for no real reason, and seem to just suck the life out of you? No one likes to be unhappy…but I am one of those people who really can’t stand it, I feel whiny and obnoxious as heck. So I decided to lift my spirits with a few simple techniques, and I am feeling so much better that I thought I might share these tips with all of you.

Realize how you feel is temporary and that you are going to get over it.

Things will get better I promise.

Treat yourself to something special…no I am not saying turn into someone who fills the void in their life with things. I am saying indulge a little, nothing too crazy but something you don’t always do.

I treated myself to some Starbucks…I basically never go to starbucks so it was nice to indulge in some chocolate beverage therapy.

Laugh! Laughter is the best medicine after all. 

I watched Jim Gaffigan’s comedy special Mr Universe and laughed my head off.

Then I watched The Marx brothers’ movie Duck Soup! I laughed so hard my stomach hurt…that’s just how hilarious this movie is. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone!

Get some sun.

Since the season Texas currently is in is Hell… oops I mean summer I kept the sunning to a minimum (less than 5 minutes) even though I was not able to stay out in the sun for very long I immediately noticed an improvement in my mood.

Get movin!

Now if running is not your thing take a walk or jog, but get out and get moving. Trust me the endorphins are totally worth it.

Socialize!

There is nothing like friends to lift your mood. Even if you’re not able to actually go and see your friend/friends call them up and chat. Never have I talked/hung out with friend and found myself upset afterwards, friends are great for listening to your problems and bringing you past them!

I hope you found some of this information to be helpful, and if any of you have some mood lifting techniques feel free to share. Happy Monday love you guys!

Valentine Plans For A Super Single Girl!

With Valentines fast approaching I thought I might do a little post on what Valentines means for those of us who are not so fortunate in love, as the rest of you coupled up show offs. 😉

Step 1. Pretend that we are happy for our gushing friend, who is bragging about how they have the best significant other in the world.

“I’m happy for you…really I am”

Step 2. Mock affectionate couples from afar.

“Hahahaha do you realize how ridiculous the two of you look?”

Step 3. Buy pity party supplies for your evening alone…all alone *sigh*.

Step 4. Stalk your exes and their relationships on facebook! And console yourself with the fact “you are much prettier than her”

“I have no idea what he sees in her”

Step 5. After all that stalking burnt some calories you decide you derserve a little Ben and Jerry’s, and by a little I mean eating your weight in the stuff.

“this ought to do…for now anyways”

Step 6. Throw yourself on the floor like a small child who can not get their way, and wallow in self pity!

Step 7. Get up brush yourself off and realize you feel a lot better, and that you are thankful that this day comes only once a year.

I really hope you guys got a kick out of this post! Happy Tuesday!
