Ruffle and Curl Blogspot

Summer is a time for taking care of the one who gets you through the rest of the year--you! You can't neglect fabulous self. It's essential to do the things you love and take pleasure in the little things in life. And someone once said, "Life is short. Make each hair flip count."

1. Wear clothes that make you feel good about your body.

If you can't be happy in your own skin, it's going to be a long summer. Find something you love and rock it!

2. Leave all your worries behind.

Hakuna Matata: it means no worries the rest of your summer *daze*! Sip something cold and sweet and kick back in the summer sun.

3. Read a book full of scandal and silly antics.

Everyone always says they'll read more when they have free time, but summer can almost be crazier than any other season. Grab a fun book that feels every bit as guilty a pleasure as watching Gossip Girl.

4. Soak in a bathtub.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017228520544852-1651606823_blairbathtub.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=542&h=b5e68810b5d41312539758a6d6e54bde19af42b8d91faac8bf78bd82f3e388a2&size=980x&c=1360561712 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017228520544852-1651606823_blairbathtub.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D542%26h%3Db5e68810b5d41312539758a6d6e54bde19af42b8d91faac8bf78bd82f3e388a2%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1360561712%22%7D" expand=1]

If you're not a bath person, maybe you're just using the wrong bubble bath. Relaxing in a warm bath is the comfort equivalent of a hug (according to Google). So give yourself some "me time" and toss a Lush bath bomb in, light a candle, and relax.

5. Keep your nails clean and pretty.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F6360172305326267692073828899_ellewoods.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=181&h=caa2f76abe5bfed62b8c15c256140f0c5a8029ed73ea4cca926c1eea2f8f11a2&size=980x&c=4265170480 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F6360172305326267692073828899_ellewoods.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D181%26h%3Dcaa2f76abe5bfed62b8c15c256140f0c5a8029ed73ea4cca926c1eea2f8f11a2%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4265170480%22%7D" expand=1]

Water and outdoor adventures can be rough on your manicure. If you're not paying attention, it's easy to find your fingernails broken and ragged.

6. Deep condition your hair at least every other week.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F6360172463262304901510195772_addison.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=590&h=567ffc8e73ea81d620ae9cf9c5e4fedad7c03d853c01043717f9f82fc22efcda&size=980x&c=2868639309 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F6360172463262304901510195772_addison.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D590%26h%3D567ffc8e73ea81d620ae9cf9c5e4fedad7c03d853c01043717f9f82fc22efcda%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2868639309%22%7D" expand=1]

Sea salt cures everything....except split ends. All the chlorine and salt is destructive to those shiny cuticles keeping your hair lush, so give it a little TLC. Leave in conditioners are miracle workers. Soak your hair and give it a generous amount of conditioner in the evening before you plop down in front of Netflix.

7. Indulge a little.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017250708741355292090081_pizza.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=50&h=c9616a742eca9e9323b08104426c3bd9ee410c0275090067a7feaadfdc5e55d0&size=980x&c=2179972575 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017250708741355292090081_pizza.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D50%26h%3Dc9616a742eca9e9323b08104426c3bd9ee410c0275090067a7feaadfdc5e55d0%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2179972575%22%7D" expand=1]

Everyone wants the perfect summer body, but summer food is pretty incredible too. It's all about the balance.

8. Dance to your new favorite summer song--this counts as cardio.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017226407529769-1494463603_bradshaw%2520dance.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=896&h=6e50b336a0c9305f9c35dd08f7b0d26ebd44c822f96e2bde3e5a162153ba822f&size=980x&c=878233417 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017226407529769-1494463603_bradshaw%252520dance.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D896%26h%3D6e50b336a0c9305f9c35dd08f7b0d26ebd44c822f96e2bde3e5a162153ba822f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D878233417%22%7D" expand=1]

Even Dr. Yang gets grooving before she saves lives, and why should you be any different? Nothing gets you feeling good like letting go.

9. Get a fuzzy blanket to binge watch Netflix.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017239871989220-1419848834_netflix%2520day.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=410&h=779f7bd02846c22cab1eac22941f3ab10a6d0af85fe785f84712296c2559fb8f&size=980x&c=259755756 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017239871989220-1419848834_netflix%252520day.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D410%26h%3D779f7bd02846c22cab1eac22941f3ab10a6d0af85fe785f84712296c2559fb8f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D259755756%22%7D" expand=1]

It's easy to feel like every day in the summer has to be snap chat worthy, but sometimes Netflix is really all you need, but it's easy to feel fabulous even at home. Put on your fave PJs, a mud mask, and curl up in a really soft blanket. After all beautiful requires beauty rest.

10. Have fun even when you're working.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017244059595317284098758_greys.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=954&h=d9532b2caa2ea452a38308cd39bc311eae9b6f41c7d862341254a682cedbb47c&size=980x&c=3591362306 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017244059595317284098758_greys.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D954%26h%3Dd9532b2caa2ea452a38308cd39bc311eae9b6f41c7d862341254a682cedbb47c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3591362306%22%7D" expand=1]

Make friends at your job. You see these people day after day so make the most out of your time together. You'll be happy when those pay checks roll in.

11. Go out with your girlfriends.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F6360172231211818962058990809_sexncity.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=544&h=c10d46fb81699ee2596c0c109fba1d448cfdb759f00d5e27a4f9df85ba03988b&size=980x&c=1228926254 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F6360172231211818962058990809_sexncity.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D544%26h%3Dc10d46fb81699ee2596c0c109fba1d448cfdb759f00d5e27a4f9df85ba03988b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1228926254%22%7D" expand=1]

Don't let summer separate you from those who love and know you the best.

12. Try something new with your make up when you're not going anywhere.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F6360172330602551931347286577_vanderwoodson.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=308&h=b83b4cccc93607cb5c269c86ed32526769c7b8fc1c1f6793bc806964e788c241&size=980x&c=2380027524 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F6360172330602551931347286577_vanderwoodson.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D308%26h%3Db83b4cccc93607cb5c269c86ed32526769c7b8fc1c1f6793bc806964e788c241%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2380027524%22%7D" expand=1]

This is a perfect time to try that new Pinterest hack. And if you don't like it, no harm done.

13. Spend a day doing nothing.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017235687749680-372783979_svw%2520blog.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=837&h=49e7b8919e74669ef9500a8132fb4b20e022b9801c3e56f34295ed1518ff850f&size=980x&c=1526154423 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017235687749680-372783979_svw%252520blog.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D837%26h%3D49e7b8919e74669ef9500a8132fb4b20e022b9801c3e56f34295ed1518ff850f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1526154423%22%7D" expand=1]

There's nothing wrong with doing nothing now and then.

14. Unplug from deadlines.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017249565950195-2008365431_addie.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=838&h=2e9917c032410a2e5867de0baec60c78575575512cead8f130893cb86ddcf720&size=980x&c=83895596 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017249565950195-2008365431_addie.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D838%26h%3D2e9917c032410a2e5867de0baec60c78575575512cead8f130893cb86ddcf720%26size%3D980x%26c%3D83895596%22%7D" expand=1]

Even better, turn off your outside connections to the world, and really truly relax.

15. Remind yourself that fabulous is a state of mind.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017255139079677-1496925446_pll%2520fab.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=819&h=72f43657a75f47266c1433f7bcb9e59f12cd12b597ab16cc742392c4931e0ae7&size=980x&c=3820954086 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017255139079677-1496925446_pll%252520fab.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D819%26h%3D72f43657a75f47266c1433f7bcb9e59f12cd12b597ab16cc742392c4931e0ae7%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3820954086%22%7D" expand=1]

It doesn't matter what time of year it is, what your weight is or if your wearing scrubs or Jimmy Choos. Happy people can be happy anywhere doing anything, and fabulous people make the most out of everything because fabulous is a lifestyle.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

4972
Pixar

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

16228
Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
