3 Simple Steps To Make You A Better Person

Help me help you. I’m huge on introspection, which can be good or bad at times. With introspection comes careful examination of one’s habits – what is and is not working? Our generation is currently in a rush to make it to the top, to launch the next new hot start-up, we’re constantly glued to our phone, and our idea of a date is Facetime. Though technologically advanced, we lack some fundamentals, which I’ve managed to sift through. One thing I want to bring back is the air of personalization .. with friends, employers, and family. Here are three things to help make you a better person:

1) COMMUNICATE IN PERSON

This is what human interaction looks like nowadays:

Boy: Hi ;)

Girl: Hiya whats up?

Boy: Nothing. Bored. Chillin. K, time for the gym, ttyl.

Girl: Okay bye!!! ;) :) (emoji) (emoji) (stupid emoji) (emoji)

Lame. And, yes, I’m judging you if you have a similar text in your phone.

Texting is written communication. I, being in love with writing, can respect that form of communication. However, an interaction in person is not only refreshing, but it’s personable. It’s an amazing feeling to truly listen to someones thoughts and feelings, and vice versa. When I’m on the phone, chances are I’m playing Bejeweled or checking Twitter. Texting doesn’t account for tone either, which can manage to lead to unnecessary communication. You never know who may be in need of a friend, or how good it might feel to truly vent and talk to an old friend.

2) SAY “THANK YOU”

What Was She Wearing: Bridal Shower With A Splash Of Neon



what to wear to a bridal shower Summer 2012 aldo shoes Peach McCandlish ballerina flats zara maxi skirt with slits pretty please



Yup, it’s wedding season and I had the honor of attending one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever been to this past weekend. Not only were the detailed planned to perfection, the amount of love in the air was amazing. Let’s just say I’m not only hung over from the weekend but emotionally spent, in a good way.

The bridal shower leading up to the wedding was also, as expected, phenomenal. Wearing a pretty floral dress for a bridal shower is usually a safe bet but I wanted to do something different (inspired by the pic below!) and guess what- I captured it all on my iPhone camera to show you guys. Let me know what you think. =)
