Your alarm just went off, you put it on snooze one too many times, and now you are going to be late. You throw on the nearest T-shirt and jeans you can find in your room and you are out the door. This look is simple, easy, fast but it would be more personalized and charming if there were a few accessories added to the look. To accessorize means to add to the overall output and to add a little spice where there is dullness.

I believe it is important to always accessorize and one can do this by wearing statement jewelry daily. It is necessary to have your own take on an outfit by wearing jewelry that tells a story, is interesting to look at, and overall makes you different from everyone else.

The first step in accomplishing everyday jewelry is by wearing rings. Rings are always visible as your hands set the stage for you. It is important however to not overdo it, each ring should be cohesive with one another and each finger should have its own flare. I personally wear 6 rings, 3 on each hand and they are a mixture of gold with silver tones. Even if your nails aren't polished, wearing rings still makes you look put together and looks as though you put effort into a look even though you wear them every day.

Belts are the second most important accessory. Yes, they serve a functional purpose but I think it is important to wear a belt that extenuates the outfit you are wearing. Black is easy to start with but when you feel more comfortable I think a colorful belt or a chain belt really can uplift a look.

Necklaces and earrings are the third most important accessories and I think they go together because if you are wearing a statement earring then the necklace you wear should not be also a statement piece. It is important to have balance with your accessories and understand that less is more but also more is more. Accessorizing truly depends on your personal style and the look you are going for. For everyday necklaces and earrings, it is important to invest in real materials that are simple can go with everything. For instance, I wear three thin gold chains every day and I have my ears pierced and I wear small earrings in my lobes and I have my cartilages pierced.

Overall, accessorizing isn't going to make or break your outfit but I think it is important to have jewelry and pieces that elevate your outfit into a personalized and look as though you went the extra step. Another easy way to do this is with your phone case, having a phone case that has a detailed print or is a fun color is another easy no thought way to accessorize.

My favorite companies to get fashionable phone cases are wildflower and casely. In the end, it is important to invest in the accessories that you wear daily as these pieces become a part of you.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

1. A semicolon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.


2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."


3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.


4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."


5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."


6. Greek symbol of Inguz: Where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."


8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya).


9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty, and artistic creativity.


10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love, and creativity or to put yourself into whatever you do.


11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from "The Hobbit." It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.


13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength and stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.


16. A glyph means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."


18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe and the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can remind us of the inconsistency of life. It also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

To My Ruined Favorite Pair of Jeans

We had a good run.

16
views

Every girl has a pair of jeans that they love more than any other. They have a perfect combination of fit, style, and comfort.

And due to that overwhelming awesomeness from that pair of jeans, we seem to wear them a bit more often than our other pairs, which usually means they wear out faster than our other pairs.

Its a special kind of sad day when you realize your go-tos are no longer wearable. Jeans can be expensive, and sometimes you have to face the fact that you will not be able to create your signature looks right away anymore.

So here is to you, and your favorite jeans.

Embrace, and cherish, the days of them always being in your drawer whenever you need them. Relish in the times that you can put them on after you had washed them and they fit a little better than the time before. Use the pockets you have stretched out to the perfect size for all of your stuff, and wear them with your favorite shoes even if you think you have worn that look one too many times.

Wear them to class, to a club, to dinner with your friends. Make the most of their versatility, allowing you to be comfortably cute whenever you need or want to be. Wear them with heels and with sneakers. Look in the mirror and smile as they perfectly fit your curves. These jeans were made for you.

Some goodbyes are harder than others, and jeans, while replaceable, have a special place in the heart of some girls. It may seem silly and ridiculous (and we know it is), but the confidence boost from your perfect pair of jeans is unmatched.

Love all the times you've had in those jeans and the events you've been able to wear them to. And when it is time for a new pair, it just means it's time to find a new go-to!
