Motivational Monday 37

“Sometimes good things fall apart, so better things can fall together.”

-Marilyn Monroe

[Wise words from the lovely Marilyn Monroe. Life is not perfect and everyone has to go through their own trials in order to find out what life has in store for them. It is all about what direction you take and where you end up. Don't let the obstacles you encounter get you down because there is always a brighter tomorrow.] -The Christine Life

Fashion Friday – Selena Gomez: Teen Choice Awards 2014

Selena decided to go with a conservative look with this Saint Laurent lady tux. I must say that I am impressed and she looks fabulous! It is very form fitting and shows off her petite figure. The silver clutch and heels add a touch of sophistication and formal to the outfit. It is nice to see that she is able to change her style and still stay true to herself when she does. Sometimes simple is good. With all the things she has to wear on tour and during performances… it must be nice to wear something more comfortable.

[I am sure everyone has heard of this quote and it is one of my favorites. No matter how high you set your goals, you are bound to get something to work in your favor. You must give everything you do your all because even if you fail it is still a learning experience to know what not to do again.] -The Christine Life

Fashion Friday – Taylor Swift: Teen Choice Awards 2014

Taylor Swift is rocking that short hair! I wasn’t sure if I liked her Mint Tweed Novis ensemble. After looking at the outfit for a while I grew to like it and it looks great on her. I personally could not pull it off but I think she can. It is a fun color and a newer take on a fabric that is known to be for the older crowd. It is modest yet fun which is definitely how Taylor Swift dresses. More girls need to take a few pointers from her because she is still able to show skin without showing an obscene amount to look cute.

“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or objects.”

-Albert Einstein

[Family, friends, and material possessions are great things to have in your life but one needs goals and successes in order to understand what it takes to get the most out of life. So set your goals high and readjust as necessary. Life is full of unexpected things so go out there and find out what is in store for you.] -The Christine Life

Fashion Friday – Lea Michele: Teen Choice Awards 2014

Lea Michele decided to go casual for the Teen Choice Awards. I mean why not? To be surrounded by teens there isn’t a need to wear fancy gowns to such an event. It is simple and colorful all at the same time. The dress was by Fausto Puglisi and her sandals were by Christian Louboutin. Teen Choice Award nominees are able to be laid back and dress less formal so I think this is an overall fun look.

Gas Station Stranger

So you know how people tell you that you shouldn’t get gas late at night?? Well tonight was a reason why… I don’t like letting the car I drive get below 1/4 of a tank so I decided to pull into the nearest gas station to put a little bit of gas so I didn’t have to deal with getting gas in the morning. I am of course minding my own business and pumping gas when a stranger comes out of nowhere and starts talking to me. He was a tall African American man asking me for some money so that he could make it to the nearest transit station. He proceeded to tell me that he wasn’t a crack head, crazy person, and etc. He also told me that when he asked people for help, he got nothing but derogatory slurs and names. Being the kind hearted person that I am, I didn’t have any cash on hand so I offered to buy him a snack and something to drink. I felt bad for him and I would want someone to help me in my time of need if I was in his shoes. I ended up buying him some snacks and two bottles of water. It was all that I could do since I had no money to give him. I hope his situation improves because we all fall into some hard times but it shouldn’t hinder you from turning a bad situation into a good one.

[You could be waiting around forever for that "perfect moment". Nothing is perfect and you must go after what you want when you want. You take all the time you need as long as you have your eyes set on the goals you want to accomplish. So go out there and make something happen for you!] -The Christine Life

Fashion Friday – Michelle Dockery

Michelle Dockery is wearing my favorite color! This beautiful Elie Saab gown accentuates her figure and makes her look super tall! It is safe to say I love gowns made by Elie Saab. I am not sure where he pulls his inspiration but he knows what he is doing! Is it just me or is it weird seeing Lady Mary outside of her Downton Abbey period clothing?? It is almost like she is time jumping with the clothes she wears haha
