Maxi Dress From Dresslily

Even though I don't consider myself a fashionista, I like to dress well and I enjoy discovering new fashion stores.
I was recently contacted by the people at Dresslily, who let me select some Items from their store to review. If you haven't heard about Dresslily, they are an online fashion store offering trendy clothing, accessories and shoes for both men and women at an affordable price.  
Here is my experience with them:

I picked the Spliced Back Plunging V Criss-Cross maxi dress (here) and the Concise PU Leather Color Block Crossbody Bag (here
My sister is modelling the dress for me. 

The package took around 21 days to be delivered with standard shipping. The dress arrived slightly wrinkled but nothing an iron couldn't fix. The quality not bad, I'd say it fits the price.
The bag matches the description from the website. It is slightly bigger than I was expected and the quality is quite good. I think I'm going to have  hard time getting it back from my sister. :P

Have a lovely Wednesday Everyone!!


Some Tumblr Likes

Hi Everyone. I hope you had a wonderful week and a warm and lovely Thanksgiving.

Today I'm sharing with you some of my tumblr likes. These are a few thoughts I share, written by others. Some Motivation and Food for Thoughts, but also some Art and Fun.
I've been on Tumblr for almost 6 years now and I still enjoy it as much as when i just started. I reblog a lot of the things I like and I tend to be slightly more vocal on there but overall I try to spread some positivity. You can find my page Here.

Beauty of Diversity. Brazilian photographer captures Lara and Mara, black twins with Albinism and their older sister Sheila.
What  simply love about these pictures is the fact that they broadcast  a diversity that we do not get to see on magazines and televisions everyday. It is showing the beauty of differences, and I think seeing more art work like this, representing more variety, could really help people accept difference as a norm and play a huge part into creating less social complexes. 

On You. You have to save yourself.
Same way we can't do it for others, they can not do it for us. It won't be easy, it will take time, you'll get discouraged, you'll even feel alone.. but quitting on yourself is not an option.

Matt McGorry on how he likes his Women. I love the way he puts it!

On Culture. There is not a more developed or less developed Culture. There are different values and different purposes. (from Yawanawa: Strength. A documentary by DJ Alok Petrillo)

On life and goals. Take a break, come bacl at t wth a refreshed mind and be awesome!

On Rights. Human rights are for all Humans.

Art. Just look at the talent.

and this.. Just because I thought this was too funny :P
What are some of your recent likes?  always enjoy reading you so do not hesitate to let me know in the comments section.
Have a great weekend Lovelies!

..Also please do not forget to share if you enjoyed the post.

What To Do When You Don't Know What To Do

We've all had moments when we felt lost, stuck and unsure. I remember being exactly in that state for what felt like the longest time last year and not having a clue what to do or where to start. It's ok to not have it all figured out. Sometimes getting lost help you truly find yourself and what you want.
Today I'm sharing with you some of the tips I used to help me handle those moments.
. Breathe .
Don't panic, don't stress, Take a Deep Breath and Pause for second. If you don't know what to do, don't just rush into anything to feel like you're doing something. Don't make any dramatic decisions. Wait until you've figured what you really want to do, then do that.

. Pray .
Thank God, pray for strength and guidance.. Just talk to God. Let him take over your life and guide your steps. Praying always helps me feel better. Whether I see the light right after a prayer or not, it helps me keep the faith and be at peace.

. Meditate .
Find a nice, quiet and comfortable place and just sit there. Clear you mind and get in touch with yourself. Sometimes we know what we want or what we have to do but we can't clearly hear our thoughts because there are too many distractions around. 

. Be Active .
You're more likely to find inspiration while being active. Get out there and expose yourself to as many things as possible. Read, write, interact with others, keep your mind stimulated.
"Inspiration exists, but it had to find you working" - Pablo Picasso

. Be Present .
Be in the now. Don't be so focus on figuring the next step of your life that you fail to enjoy the present moment. Accept things as they are. I'm not saying settle, but let go of what you thought this moment was suppose to be and Be Happy right now.

Remember everything is temporary and you can only grow from here.
I hope this helps.

Happy Wednesday! :)

5 Things I Want To Learn

I like learning new things. From useful to fun or random.. it's always a good idea to stimulate and expand your mind. Learning a new skill gives me a sense of accomplishment and pride. Plus you never know when you might need that knowledge.

Here are 5 of the things I want to learn:

A new language
I speak French and English fluently and I really want to learn a third language. I've started following small Spanish classes on YouTube. I don't have anybody to practice with but I enjoy it still.

The piano
The piano is my favourite instrument. I always wanted to learn how to play. I tried teaching myself with a small keyboard when I was younger but then it broke. I should get myself an actual piano and make it happen.

I never had a bike or learned to ride one. I think bicycling around should be a very fun activity. Although I'd probably fall a few times and embarrass myself a lot learning, I really want to know how to cycle.

Self defence
I think everybody should learn self defence and be able to protect themselves. Having this skill would also boost your confidence and make you feel like a ninja.

Knit and Sew
It would be fun to be able knit myself a nice scarf, add my own little touches to my clothes and make them unique or knit a love one something special.  

What do you have on your list of things to learn?

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :)

Positive Affirmation

Decide that your day is going to be good and that you are going to do good. Believe that and act with that belief.

Your thoughts create your reality. When you have negative thoughts, you subconsciously do things that lead you in the direction of failure. You fail to truly invest yourself or do your best because you anticipate negative results. But this exact behaviour is what creates the negative outcome, and negative results validate the negative thoughts which create a negative life. Cycle.
When you have positive thoughts, you're more likely to do things that go in the direction of your goals. When you face challenges, you do not approache them wth a defeated mind but instead yo see them as a way to surpass yourself. You adjust you plan and stay focus on creating solutions. You find alternatives and stay happy.

Knowing this doesn't automatically make the negative thoughts go away. I too still have moments when I have to fight with my thoughts. The fears, the self doubt... but I know the key is to practice positive affirmation. We are not prisoners of our thoughts. We control them, not the other way around.

Affirmation of the day:
I am Strong, I am Confident, I am Able, I am Brave, I Believe in me.

I declare:
The last two months of this year are going to be great. I won't worry about what I don't have control over. I will make the best of whatever comes my way. I will be more productive, Love more, Help more, be more Grateful.
I'm putting it out there.

Thank you for reading. Do not forget to leave a comment,  l would love to read your thoughts, suggestions, experiences or anything you want to share.
