Sunday Sparkle

Be kind, for whenever kindness becomes part of something, it beautifies it. Whenever it is taken from something, it leaves it tarnished.

I can be Ms. Cranky Pants–especially now that the busy holiday season is here. Christmas or not, all I know is that I want to add more kindness and beauty to the world around me. That’s why I’m hoping that this quote can help keep me centered and inspire me to be a little more patient and a lot more generous when it comes to sprinkling get-happy, feel-beautiful vibes to the people (and strangers) I encounter.

What about you? What are you doing to make the holidays more beautiful for yourself and those around you? Do share! ♥

Sunday Sparkle

The energy around Sundays is always a little different from the rest of the week. It’s slower, more relaxed, and once the morning light peeks in through your window, totally inspirational. I thought I’d get in on this vibe by posting empowering, get-all-sparkly on the inside quotes every Sunday…like this:

Who am I to be brilliant quote

Sometimes, it seems safer to be in the shadows and play it small. But you know what? I say we should all give ourselves permission to shine and take daily steps to make the life of our dreams, well, a reality. I believe we can totally do it! What do you say? Are you in? Let’s all #choosetoshine! ♥

Love and sparkles,




As you may already know, I’m one of the editors at I love being a part of this group of strong and supportive women because they just GET it.
