Rules To Live By

Just a few simple things that help me navigate my way through life.

1. Trust yourself. 
“The secret to feeling attractive, and to being attractive, is the confidence that comes from knowing who you are and what you believe in.”

2. Accept the passage of time. 
 “The older you get, the more you should learn to love life and appreciate the beauty that comes with age.”

3. Document your life. 
“Keep a diary, write a blog, take photos - 
they all hep to create an inspiring visual diary of your life.”

4. Dress for your shape and your age
“Don't be a slave to fashion and trends - 
choose clothes that suit your body type and are age appropriate.
 Buy less but buy better quality. Buy clothes that make you feel good.

5. Dress for your personality. 
“Always choose styles that also accentuate your personality.
Don’t use fashion to try and project a different persona. Authenticity is key.”

6. Look after your friends. 
“A GOOD FRIEND is a connection to life -
a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world.”
Friends make you laugh, lighten your burden, keep you real
and provide a shoulder to cry on.

7. Use your feminine power. 
“My mother taught me that being a woman is a privilege because the world revolves around us! It is a precious gift, and its power should be used in a subtle and respectful way.”

8. Travel. 
Anyone who has ever gone anywhere will tell you that traveling is one of the most exciting and life-changing activities that you can do. Observing a different culture will expand your mind and educate you while making you appreciate the life you already live.

9. Indulge yourself. 
“Book regular facials and  massages.
 I’m sure it helps to keep everything firm and in it’s place!”

10. Lead a balanced life. 
“The best regimen is to keep moving! Never stop working, travelling and seeking adventure.
 Drink plenty of water, limit alcohol and sugar and get to your yoga class!
