An exciting brand {to be announced soon} I am partnering with asked me for a Laura Trevey quote yesterday. That was easy. I replied with the mission of Bright Bold and Beautiful, “Live Beautifully”. Now, what does this mean, you ask? Well, it can mean different things to different people. I will tell you what it means to me, which is also fitting for this time of year with everyone setting their goals and resolutions for 2013.

be happy and live beautifully

8 Ways I Live Beautifully Every Day

In order for me to “live beautifully” I practice what I preach. 1. I am a routine kind of girl who goes to bed at 10:30pm and wakes up at 6:30am every day, like clockwork {no pun intended}. I cannot function without my sleep. 2. At 7am, Sophie {our black lab} and I take a brisk walk. It’s great for her, and probably even better for me. It’s a wonderful way to start the day. 3. I am obsessed with hot green tea and drink it every afternoon and another cup in the evening. A great coffee substitute at Starbucks {one of my favorite stops} is their iced green tea. 4. I also try to fit in 8 glasses of water each day. I believe it helps cleanse my body and it’s good for my skin. 5. As busy as the day gets, I make time for myself in the evening. Down time relieves my stress. You have heard the saying, “A happy Mom is a happy Home.” So true, just ask my family. 6. In addition to blogging, which is my passion, I also feel joy from painting. It is a meditation of sorts, and it can take me away to a peaceful place. 7. I am grateful for my family and my goal for 2013 is to spend more quality time together. 8. I am obsessed with inspirational quotes, as you can see from my Pinterest board. I actually have many of these sayings posted in my office where I read them every day. One of my favorite quote is, “Be so happy that when others look at you, they become happy too.”
