A New Year. A New You.

It’s a new year, which means a new you! Fashion isn’t about looking a certain way, it’s about feeling a certain way. This year, bring out that inner fashionista, the dare-devil or the flower child that makes you feel good. Try something new. Be someone different. You may be surprised by the confidence it brings out!

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of working with Rebecca Gibbons Pandit ( blogger at Tech In Real Life ). Not only did we push the envelope with her style, but we came up with some pretty fun and slightly different ways to pair items you might have hanging around in your closet. Although I’m pretty sure most of you don’t own a pair of these killer British flag tights, how fun are they?! We paired these up with some cute black shorts and other accessories. The final results are rockin.

Beauty & Style Radiates from the Inside Out

Because I believe that being good to your insides will help you shine on the outside, I decided to ask Jamee Tuttle (Wellness Coach) to write a blog post on beauty from the inside. If you like what she has to say and want to learn more, visit her online at: http://thrivinglifenow.com or follow her blog: http://thrivinglifenow.com/blog  She’s got all kinds of ways to help YOU be a better YOU … inside and out!

Have you seen those women (and men, too!) who walk down the street, around the office or wherever you may see people and they just seem to radiate with beauty, handsomeness and confidence?

They seem to mostly be in a decent mood, and are comfortable with themselves. And, even if you don’t like their personal “style”, or a particular outfit they are wearing, they seem stylish and always pulled together, too!

And on top of all of this you notice the best part: when they open their mouths to speak, communicate and interact with others, their outer beauty matches their inner beauty because they are coming from a place of SELF-LOVE.

They treat others with kindness and respect. They are free of jealousy, free of gossip and free of that constant comparison thing that happens to so many of us, myself included.

They are radiating their inner beauty. They may not even be “traditionally beautiful” (whatever that is?!!) or super-model attractive but they have got IT.

What IS that?

That is self-love. When you truly love yourself and feel and know you are a worthy human being, you vibrate energetically at a higher level in life. You interact with others differently, you speak differently and you dress accordingly. You are comfortable in your own skin and with your body – no matter what size – and you don’t fear self-expression nor do you worry about the opinions of others.

That is a beautiful place to be in one’s life, and that beauty radiates from inside you, out into the world.

When this happens, you are YOU and can express yourself in many ways, whether it be with fashion, art, music, sports, yoga, writing…however you like to express…it just pours out.

And that is stylish. That is inner beauty shining out for the world to see. In my way of thinking and expressing, that is thriving.

Take note of these people,  friends, co-workers and even strangers. Learn from them. Their radiation of light and self-love gives us permission to do the same.
