#Trying to be a #Better Person

01/13/2012

By: Angel Elexa

I’m not big on forwards, especially those that require you to send to 20 people in the next 6 minutes.  However, every once in a while, I find one with useful information or just plain amusing that I’ll actually hit send to brighten someone else’s day.

Well, here’s one with some good advice from Tony Robbins that you could actually use to be a better, more thoughtful and compassionate person in 2012. 

We’re all about evolving and becoming optimal citizens of the world, right?  Take these 21 tasks and implement them into your everyday life.  See what you get in return.  Hopefully, a whole lotta of peace and blessing!  Remember to share this post on Facebook or Twitter with your friends. 

You don’t have to FORWARD this to get something you’ve wanted in the next 3 days….Just SHARE it to be NICE!

21 Tasks for 2012

ONE.  Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
 
TWO.  Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
 
THREE.  Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
 
FOUR.  When you say, ‘I love you’ , mean it.
 
FIVE.  When you say, ‘I’m sorry,’ look the person in the eye.

SIX.  Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
 
SEVEN.  Believe in love at first sight.
 
EIGHT.  Never laugh at anyone’s dream. People who don’t ave dreams don’t have much.
 
NINE.  Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt, but it’s the only way to live life completely.
 
TEN.  In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.
 
ELEVEN.  Don’t judge people by their relatives.
 
TWELVE.  Talk slowly but think quickly.
 
THIRTEEN.  When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, ‘Why do you want to know?’
 
FOURTEEN.  Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
 
FIFTEEN.  Say ‘bless you’ when you hear someone sneeze.
 
SIXTEEN.  When you lose, don’t lose the lesson!
 
SEVENTEEN.  Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions.
 
EIGHTEEN.  Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship..
 
NINETEEN. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

 TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

TWENTY-ONE.  Spend some time alone. Reflect and get to know you and what you want!

#Trying to Keep My Money…#FlirtyFinances in #Houston

07/22/2011

By: Angel Elexa

Money….It’s something we have to think about on a daily basis.  Where is it going to come from, how it will be used, and is there enough of it?  I’m often plagued with those questions, especially in this economy.  As you get older and enter into your later twenties and early thirties, you begin to worry about what exactly to do with your money and how to prepare for the future.  Bump a rainy day fund, I gotta save for retirment, right?!  And, how do I save for both when I already live paycheck to paycheck?

All good questions…I have actually sought  investment and budget advice from a financial consultant.  It’s just too much for me to handle sometimes…LOL  But, the main focus here is to be Smart & Savvy with  money and know that we need to leave more to our families than just bills, bills, bills.  Consider getting the financial help you need and get your questions answered today.

Check out this video from ABC Houston.  OMG….Alison, my neighbor and Houston Based Realtor, is featured.  She was selected in the dog park to discuss the country’s financial condition and how it has affected her investments.

She looks amazing, as we all should when we skirt about town.  Here’s a FlirtyThirty Soror representing the sisterhood well and speaking eloquently on such a hot topic near and dear to our hearts.  Here’s to looking Fabulous and being Flirty with our Finances.  Who says looking good and being fiscally smart isn’t Fun?!

So if you haven’t signed up with Groupon or any of the other social purchase clubs, then you are missing out.  I’ve gotten great deals on food at Texasdelphia, clothes at Nordstrom Rack, Shellac mani/pedi’s and the thing I love most…CONCERTS!  I got a great deal with Groupon to see Bon Jovi for $9 bucks a seat.

Trying to be Boho Chic…#Houston

05/09/2011

How to Buy a Boho Bag

By the ChicFashionista

Most boho handbags are slouchy, made of natural materials like leather (faux or real, it doesn’t matter) or suede. The classic leather hobo handbags go with everything, while the more colorful ones (patchwork, prints, etc.) are great for adding a focal point to your outfit. Whatever bag you choose, if you want to look boho chic, make sure you buy the ones with vintage details such as braids, tassels and fringes. These details are often what define original bohemian style!

You can never go wrong with faux leather and faux suede in black, tan or dark brown. They are two versatile materials that look good with most outfits. By choosing the classics you’re free to play with other accessories like jewelry without messing up your outfit.

If you have a more eclectic bohemian style, try patch work designs or eye catching colors like mustard yellow, deep purple, and reds (anything that is a bit splashy) the better. Just  try to keep the rest of your outfit simple.

Make sure you drop by the Fabulous $40 and Flirty $30 Handbag section on our site where you’ll find lots of boho chic handbag essentials great for your Fun life and Flirty outfits.

LIVE Life…and look fabulous!
