Three of the day #2

Todays three of the day is actually meant for tomorrow. As we know, Tuesdays is that day of the week where the weekend feeling has passed and we feel far from half way into the week. Yet, we have to keep a positive attitude! We do not want worry-wrinkles and darkened circles under our eyes from stress and bore, now do we? Therefore, without further ado, here is this week Tuesday edition of three of the day.

 

Advice of the day:

This is going to sound insane, but I swear it is in a mad genius kind of way. As I mentioned earlier, Tuesdays are kind of a bore because there is really no kind of positive spin we can put on it. Except, this one. If Tuesdays are beyond saving anyways, there is really only one thing to do. We move the most boring stuff to this day, so that the days that are actually within reach of saving, can be saved. That feeling in your stomach, those rolling eyes and the voice in your head that says that it is the stupidest thing you have heard, I have those to. My aching back and sleepy eyes are all like “Zoë, are you insane?” Maybe I am. Maybe I am not. Either way, I know that we all know from experience how amazing you feel after finishing something you have been dreading, and how lovely it is to be able to relax, knowing that it is all thanks to yourself. For example, yesterday I finished my work with psychology 1, and know have all the answers and notes for the course to review before my exam. And after having worked on that for hundreds of hours, finishing it was the best feeling in the world! That is why I am going to do my painfully boring homework and assignments tomorrow, so that the rest of the week can fit in plenty of me time. And trust me, slightly narcissistic people as my self need A LOT of me time.  And I advise you to do the same (duh, advice of the day), and almost guarantee that the rest of your week will be a lot easier if you do.

Fashion tip of the day:
Focus on accessories.
If you are like me, chances are that you will be tired tomorrow. Therefore, my advice to you is to not wear the tightest jeans and the most complicated layered tops. Instead, wear a minimalistic outfit, perhaps completely white to emphasize the minimalistic image while still looking stylish as never before. Instead of wearing a complicated outfit, focus on accessories. Long or hopped earrings pair excellent with a high ponytail, and add a statement necklace to easily look dressed up. Never overlook the power of ring sets, consisting of several slim, simple rings, and a focus-grabbing bracelet. It might be to snowy or slippery to wear shoes over boots, so prioritize purses. Choose a big, bold one or a small, complimenting one. Either way, own it! So there is my simple, yet hopefully useful, tip of the day. Basic outfit, bitching accessories.

Colors-schmolers. Quiz?

I have like the biggest nerd thing for color schemes for some reason, so I am definitely going to write about it in the near future, but for the time being, I just want to test your knowledge. Phones down, pens up!

Fashion is not always colorful, but it is always fun!

What are your thoughts on seasonal colors? And more importantly, this seasons colors.  Also, as the wannabe people pleaser I am, I have to ask, do you like these type of quizzes?

 

Three of the day #1 Why Wednesday?!

For my first ever three of the day, I will sort of focus on the good, the bad and the wednesday, which is part of both. Please excuse all of my bad jokes, my three tips are better, I swear. Okay, I hope. Lets just find out.

Advice of the day:

Wednesdays are famously known for being the dullest and longest lasting day of the week. Therefore, we must beat it. We cannot outrun it, but we can fight it. Are you bored? Entertain yourself with small games. Count how many times your teacher or boss uses that same word or says the name of that annoying person. You lack motivation? Make a list of what you are there for, both short-term and long term. Maybe you can relax better at the party this weekend knowing that you have worked hard. Or maybe you need to pass school or get through this boring Wednesday in that boring job so that you can do what you really want. Do you want to be a lawyer? A fashion designer? Or perhaps a successful entrepreneur? Do you want a big house, or a massive wardrobe? No matter what your dreams are, know that each second you are a little bit closer. And do not forget, once you are through today, Friday is only a day away!

Today’s motivation:

Yes, I am one of those grandparent-like people who use long, weird stories to make points. With that said, let us go back to my weird story that I swear has a point. Okay, as many of you may know this has been a particularly cold, snowy and icy winter. For a freshly born Bambi such as the 5 foot 10 myself, this brings some challenges. So the other day I was rushing from campus to get to the library, yes the library. As you know, in snow-filled times as these, plowing leaves us with these impossibly thick walls of snow that you have to climb. To add to my suffering, nature thought it would be a great idea to make this edge incredibly icy, and therefore slippery. So I am rushing from campus, and try to climb this massive edge-wall combo. So what happens when a Bambi tries to climb the wall of horror? I will tell you what happened. I started falling. I literally slipped around on top of this edge for 45 seconds straight. Which I wish I could say was not classic me, but unfortunately it is. So where is the motivation? Well, after slipping around with a fear and almost insight of a certain death, I actually managed to catch balance. And if I can keep myself from falling on the wall of horror with my incredibly limited capacity, you can do ANYTHING! You want to pass algebra? You can do it! You want to became President? You can do it! And you most certainly can get through this day! Reach for the stars! But seriously, stay safe on the ice.

Today’s fashion tip:

Famous words from a beloved character “On Wednesdays we wear pink”. Yes, for the first ever tip on my blog; let us just keep it simple. I personally believe that the plastics do not just wear pink on Wednesdays because it is a “girly” color, but also because on the middle day of the week you need something uplifting. It is hard to find something as uplifting as the color pink. It is simple, beautiful and reminds us of a more joyful time. Now, I am not saying that you have to put on a summer dress, a big pink shirt or even a pink t-shirt. Even though I am not saying that you should not do that, because those things are great! Except, unless you live in a particularly warm area you should probably hold the summer dress. The point is that even if it is just your bracelet, your nails or your purse that has this color, the detail will not go unnoticed and is sure to lift your outfit, and probably your mood as well!

“On Wednesdays we were pink”. Rule to live by from the classic Tina Fey movie “Mean Girls”. Hanging tight for the third!
