It’s day three of our #GoodVibesGifting. I don’t know why I didn’t think about connecting with you this way before. It’s so much fun reading through all of your comments. Let’s keep the good vibes going because I am now planing for us to connect more next year.
If you missed my Day 1 and Day 2 posts, feel free to check them out and share your stories there. If you have no idea what we’re doing here, please head to this Day 1 post, read through the rules and let’s get to know each other more!
LAST MINUTE HOLIDAY OUTFIT IDEAS
Is it a good idea to add ruffle detail pieces to your Fall/ Winter closet? Yes, it is! Only one thing you have to look out for is the appropriate fabric for the colder weather. Even though you might have seen a lot of ruffles during Spring/ Summer but there’re no strict rules that you have to wear ruffles only in that time of the year.
What’s so great about ruffles are that it can make your look extra fun, flirty, sweet, feminine and stylish at the same time.
In today’s post, I’m wearing this pastel purple check with ruffle cuffs sweater from Nasty Gal. I really love the color, pattern and the ruffle cuffs but too bad this sweater is already out of stock. I have linked some cute ruffle sweaters for you below in case you’re looking for one.
I’m wearing my sweater over my purple midi dress. My bag is complimentary from Ella McHugh. For shoes, I go for my old leopard print heels in pink, here are the same style heels as mine but they’re in brown. Adding a holiday texture like these pretty burgundy velvet socks to complete my look. I have linked some colorful leopard shoes for you below.
DAY THREE OF #GOODVIBESGIFTING
Get to know me: Are you a perfectionist? I have to say that I used to be 101% perfectionist, now I decrease it to 75% I would say. 🙂 I used to wait for everything to be perfect and ready before I started any project. Or I would wait until my project was completely perfect before I called it finished. Over the years, I have learned that I shouldn’t wait or waste my time before I decide to do something. Time is so valuable and it will pass by so quickly. I felt like I was in my teen years yesterday and today I’m already in my 3o’s. I can’t waste my time anymore. I have to live my life to the fullest and the happiest.
Since I became a mom and having my own family, time goes by even quicker than ever. I know all of you moms out there are feeling the same way as I feel. There are time that I feel stress, tired and want to sit and do nothing, but that means I will waste my time again. Sometimes just to get myself out of the house with no makeup and messy hair was too hard to do. Because I felt like I wasn’t perfect enough to go out. But you know what, who cares? No one really cares and they don’t know what your day was like anyways. So why have that perfectionist fear kept me in the house and loose the opportunity to get a cup of coffee or even just breath in the fresh air.
I started living my life by the “Nobody is Perfect” mentality and my life has been a lot more simple and easy to live. Whatever I want to do, I will do it right away so I don’t miss the opportunity or keep forgetting to do them.
Like starting this blog, I was so afraid to start at first. I thought of so many names, how to design a blog, what I was going to say because English is not my first language. I was thinking and planning to have my blog live for so many months. I published my first blog in Mid June of 2016, almost a year after I gave birth to my first daughter. Just to think about it, I don’t know why I waited for so long to do it. I must have missed a lot of opportunities during those months. Oh, well but I’m here now.
My first blog post didn’t even look good. I didn’t know what I was doing and when I compare that to all of my recent posts, I feel I’m getting a lot better but I still have some room to develop. I know, that the perfectionist is coming back to me again! Lol! 😉 But I have my content out to share with you anyways. I don’t want to miss the time to connect with you and start building our relationship. Who knows, we might meet each other one day! If I wait for everything to be perfect, my blog might have never been on the internet today.
My thought for you today is that time will help you develop your skills, make you feel more comfortable and confident. Life is so simple, don’t make things complicated and overwhelm yourself. Time is valuable, so please don’t let time go by because you want to be ready or to be perfect. You will learn and develop the second you start doing. No, you don’t need to be perfect at the beginning but trust me, you will get better and better and in the end everything will be perfect in your eyes.
Questions for you today: What’s one project (thing) you’re planning to do and never started doing? What’s stopping you? Are you going to do it now? If you decide to wait, why?
