New Year, New Blue

To start off 2019, I replaced the blues in my life with shades of blue such as this beautiful sequin dress,

which is one of my favorite finds (that only cost me $20!). There is just something about the color blue

and how it embodies such a calm and soothing feel. Blue has long been described as a strong elegance in

which also symbolizes harmony, balance, and peace – everything that 2019 will be.

You probably endured some hardships in 2018, but this New Year is completely different because you

are ready to take the world by storm.

Here are four things to remind yourself when you are feeling the blues:

First, know your worth.

Don’t be afraid to aim high and shoot for the stars.

Second, always be kind to yourself.

Reward yourself for all of the hard work you put into and make time for yourself. Put on a dress, call up

your girlfriends, and dine at one of your favorite restaurants!

Third, don’t forget to smile.

As Dr. Seuss said, “Life’s too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right,

forgive the ones who don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it.

If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it’d be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.”

Last but not least, it doesn’t hurt to have fun. In this case, allow yourself a glass of wine or two.

2019, we are ready for you!
