Happy Friday Loves!

So Spring is in the air.... this is by far my favoirte times of year (weather wise) in SoCal.

Today I am teaming up with Banana Republic for the "What Moves Us" campaing. So I wanted to share "How to be happy". Yeah, I know what you are thinking...and maybe you are rolling your eyes. But, today I wanted to share how I found I can turn my mood around. 

It sounds crazy silly I know, but I have litterally typed this into my google search bar. There are just some days that are not all sunshine. For me I have found that just doing the simplest of things can help brighten my mood or just simply make me feel motivated to get out and get going. 

For one, getting out of the uber casual clothing, like leggings, is key. Comfort is great but sometimes it can consume you and make you feel a little lazier. So my first tip is to get dressed. And, maybe on a Tuesday afternoon a dress isn't the answer, but even jeans and a nice blouse can make you feel more put together and happier. However, on the weekends you bet I will pull out a bright dress, like this cute orange one, and go out for dinner. I mean, why not?! We should celebrate everyday and make the most of it- so being overdressed should not be what is holding you back. YES, kick your heel up! Get motivated and get happy. 

Another tip, is to put it simply...retail therapy. I mean it is cheaper than real therapy. But in all seriousness, just get out of the house and go shopping (or even window shopping). Honestly, just walking around and breathing a different kind of air will change your perspective. And, ya never know; you may find that what ever stressed you out before isn't even that big a deal anyways. I acutally even like to go to the grocery store, get some yummy snacks and some flowers. That way I have something nice to look at (which brightens the mood of my place), and something that makes my tummy happy ( #win).  

So there ya have it. I am sharing the most inovative ideas on how to get happy. I know I shocked ya with the complexity of these, lol. Even though they seem like vein ideas, they are really just simple ideas that can easily and quickly be achieved. It is a lot harder and time consuming to fix lifes problems. However, chaninging your perspective can be easier than ya think. 

So what moves you? Do you have any little pick me ups you swear by? Let me know!

Cheers loves!!
