// Dessert is always an option. What is dinner without it? Or why not just have dessert instead of dinner?
// If you want something, do whatever it takes to make it happen. Even if it means selling your beloved Kate Spade handbag. Thank you, future European Adventure.
// Be nice and do nice things for people.
// Write thank you notes. To everyone. For everything. For Anything. This one is important: write them to your professors at the end of every semester. Students rarely do this and professors appreciate it. Do this especially if you feel like you need a grade boost. I’m just sayin’. Works like a charm ;D
// #NoDrama. Consider the other person’s perspective before arguing/blowing up on them. Lately, there’s been too much drama going on in my life. Chill out or get out.
// Challenge yourself. Currently, I’m challenging myself to learn as much Italian as possible in the next 6 weeks. It’s incredible what we can do when we set our minds to it!
// Make Wine Wednesdays a thing. You won’t regret it. It’s always nice to take time to relax and enjoy good company.
// Don’t wait around for things to happen. Go out and make them happen.
// Get involved in something you’re passionate about! Whether it’s an organization, hobby, or profession, be fueled by passion!
// Make up hashtags for formal and informal events.
// I have 12 hours to mope around after a breakup. After those 12 hours, I better find something else to focus my attention on. Why waste time moping around when I could be happy?
// Always dress up. I tend to be over dressed 99% of the time.
// If people don’t like you that’s their problem, not yours. Be you and be authentic. Don’t let them bring you down.
// Never drunk text boys. Just don’t. I always text my girlfriends (or my little brother for some reason…) if I feel the desire to text.
// Make your bed every morning. Odd, I know, but since I’ve started doing this, my days are more productive and my mood is boosted!
// Take a chance and travel. Even if you can’t afford it.
// High heels. High Standards. Pearls Everyday.
