In our busy day and lives, we often forget about the simple little things- like smiling, wishing someone a good day, giving someone a compliment and the list can go on. This week after coming from work, my hands stacked … Continue reading

You know how most of us are super tech savvy these days and have the kindle app to productively read books on the go? Well trust me, you need to pull out your kindle right about now and get this book-especially if you’re a student. Or just someone who wants to refocus their thoughts a bit and their perspective on their attitudes and goals.
Genius on Purpose, written by Christopher Yang, sheds insightful information on the mindsets that some of us may have such as ‘I’m not smart enough’ or ‘I just can’t achieve anything in life ‘ and how we can overcome that negativity and refocus our thoughts and attitudes into actually exceeding what we thought we were capable of.
What I especially like about this book is that it was written in a conversational way from someone who actually went through the same things that we did as students and this makes it a ton more user friendly as opposed to the technical ways most study help books are written.
My fave two chapters are ‘The 4 Pillars of Effective Studying’ which basically tells it to you as it is aka what you need to do to get things done in the right way. Another fave is the chapter that discusses goal setting. Now let me tell you, I am an agenda whore and chronic list maker so when it comes to setting goals, that’s what I am all about. I love the way that chapter helped me to remember why goals are so important and in fact, it inspired me to look at my life right now and see what goals I need to set for myself.
From my Back to School series on my channel, you can tell that I am all about that successful school life and I wanted to share with you this book so that you too can find that mentality where you can achieve great success-not only in school, but in your life as well.

Each day is so precious, and so unique; just a blank canvas that is simply waiting for you, the artist, to create a masterpiece.
I often wonder why it is that people feel the need to wait until the end of the year to have a New Year’s Resolution; or even the beginning of a new semester, in order for them to effect change? I think it’s because we all have taken for granted the power that lies in 24 hours. Why wait for a year to pass, when you could just become the YOU that you want- the BEST that you can be?
It is never too late to trigger change. You have the time NOW, so why put off what you have to do? Why procrastinate? The thing is, the saying, “it’s better to be safe than to be sorry”, it applicable here. Why put off writing that thank you note? Why put off that assignment, that phone call, that garden, that poem, that drawing…?
There’s always time in your day when you can just do something different. Something out of your ordinary routine.
Girly It Girls know that each minute, each hour, each day, is as precious and as vital as each month or year, because in the end, it’s all about LIFE.
Don’t ever feel as if you have to wait for the “right” moment to make something special happen, because honestly, life itself is special, and we girls know that in order to get anywhere in life, it is up to each and everyone one of us as an individual person, to take their life by storm.
So go on, Live a Little.

Hey My fellow Girly It Girls,
Need some Inspiration? Here are some of my favourite quotes that keep me going:
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.” ~ Mark Twain
” Dare to be yourself.
Emerge…… unfold….. unveil your possibilities but be natural.
Have no pretenses and show your softer side.
Be content, but don’t forget to dream… and when you do….SOAR!” ~ Unknown
“The ability to convert ideas to things is the secret to outward success.” ~ Henry Ward Beecher
“I have spread my dreams beneath your feet. Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.” ~ W.B. Yeats
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
“ Don’t waste your life in doubts and fears: spend your life on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour’s duties will be the best preparation for the hours or ages that follow it.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hope this helps you put some perspective on your life, and gets you motivated!
Girly It Girl Forever <3
Okay, so for most of us girls out there, our lives are riddled with school and work, and a mountain of other responsibilities. So how can you ever find the time to be your best? And by your best I mean every aspect of YOUR BEST: MOOD, LOOK, FEELING…basically your best everything.
But how do you get there? How to you find time in your crazy hectic day to be a Girly It Girl?
Firstly, let me state that being a Girly It Girl has NOTHING to do with being a stuck up blond-cheerleader-skinny-party girl-spoilt-brat! In fact the following is what it means to be a Girly It Girl
7 Definition of Girl It Girl:
1.A Girl who is strong and confident in herself.
2.She knows what she’s about.
3.She has goals/aspirations.
4.She knows what she stands for: aka she has morals
5.She has a sense of responsibility, not only to herself, but to others in her community, country, and the world.
6. A girl who has priorities, and can organize herself and her life, in such a way that can have the most impact.
7.A girl who lives her life to the fullest.
Like so many of you, I wasn’t exactly the “Girly It Girl”, mainly because I believed that I was soooo busy, thinking that I had so little time to focus on myself. So instead, I found myself cramming my day with school work, baby-sitting, chores, extra-curricular activities, and the list can go on. Basically, you can say that I was harbouring some serious self-neglect.
I was under some weird spell that made me seem to think that if I exercised for 15 minutes, I would never finish this assignment on time. I couldn’t find the light of day to do my nails or a facial, make my hair look decent; my room just could never stay clean, and I was forever unorganized, and exercise? What was that? I just felt as if my whole world and everything just could not fit into a 24 hour time slot.
I was basically a workaholic, with no time to focus on what was really important: Taking care of myself. You may not be a workaholic, but you may be a constant party goer, athlete, couch potato (if you are, don’t worry, we can change that!), and whatever “aholic” that you are, basically by spending too much time on one particular aspect of your life.
With my simple advice from someone who can say they’ve been there and done that before, you can become a Girl It Girl, and change all the aspects of your life so that you can be successful, beautiful, driven, and in the end, encompass all the definitions of being a Girly It Girl.
Your Girly It Girl For Life <3
