Think Of A Wonderful Thought

Think Of A Wonderful Thought

Today I wanted to send a little encouragement and inspiration your way. I want this to make you smile like I am! When you're having a bad day or your anxiety is caving in on you and you feel like it's going to completely take over, stop and...

Think of a wonderful thought
Any merry little thought
Think of Christmas, think of snow
Think of sleigh bells - off you go!
Like a reindeer in the sky
You can fly! You can fly! You can fly!

Think of the happiest things
It's the same as having wings
Take the path that moonbeams make
If the moon is still awake
You'll see him wink his eye
You can fly! You can fly! You can fly!


"You Can Fly!" - Peter Pan

Thinking of whatever makes you happy is a natural medicine that can definitely work! I say "can", because it might not always work. In those cases, it's best to try other things that make you feel happy and safe. I feel many different things when I'm anxious. Some of those things feel like a huge weight pushing me downward or like I'm trapped in a small space. But when I direct my thoughts to something positive, I can feel my wings! And if I'm really successful, I feel like I can fly again!

Sometimes it comes easy, but there might be times when you have to tell yourself to think of a happy thought over and over again before it works. Don't give up so fast! If you begin drifting back to what it was that started the anxious feelings, you gotta think of something else until all you're thinking about are good things. Things that make you happy. I have found this especially useful lately when I've been trying to sleep. My anxiety has been getting in the way and it's been no fun. But trying to be positive by thinking about something happy (along with praying) really helps. I'd rather not be thinking about anything, but falling asleep to positive thoughts is so much better.

Together, we can #fightagainstanxiety ! Last November was when I first spoke about anxiety and after your responses, it inspired me to write more about it in a post called Overcoming Anxiety with Truth. I hope to continue to encourage you and make you feel less alone in this battle!

Tell me what you will think about the next time you're having a bad day or are feeling anxious! Let's give each other ideas! I will think about everyone that I love, the next event I am looking forward to and maybe a little bit of pixie dust. :)

Fashion Finds: Day & Night Navy

Navy has already made such a hit this Spring it's almost become the new black. It's a color that has been unfamiliar for many people to wear during a season where pastels and bright colors are usually worn. Navy is here to stay throughout the Summer and just like black, it can be worn throughout the year. If you can train your brain to think of it as a neutral, you can pair it with anything! Today I have put together a look featuring pieces from American Eagle which you can wear throughout the day and adjust to make it appropriate for a night out!

I am so happy to see kimonos still going strong! This navy floral kimono is absolutely beautiful. When you own a lovely printed kimono like this one you want to keep the focus on it which is why this loose braided muscle tank would go perfectly underneath. I'm a knit jeggings girl but you can also opt for a pair of jeans to go with it. If I'm going to be out in the sun and walking around all day I'd definitely grab this navy fedora hat (though if I'm being honest I'd totally rock this hat indoors as well!) and throw on a pair of comfortable flip flops. And at the end of the day if I'm going on a date with my husband, I'd swap the hat for this gemstone and disc bib necklace and put on a pair of wedges like these crocheted wedge sandals. Most of the time all you need to do to change your outfit from day to night is switch up your accessories and shoes! This is a great way to transition your look especially if you can't make it home to change. All you need to do is bring a few accessories along with you!

How do you feel about Navy for Spring/Summer? How do you like to change your outfit from day to night?

Beauty Box 5: May Box

This month's Beauty Box 5 box included a great variety of different products to try out! I am most excited about the super soft full-sized Coastal Scents Classic Brush and can't wait to start blending away this week! The other full-sized product I received was the Styli-Style Blush Stick. It's definitely too dark for me but I'm sure it'll do fine as a bronzer. The plus side is that it's cruelty-free! I tried the oil-free Dermalogica Active Moist last night. It contains silk amino acids and a unique combination of plant extracts that help improve skin texture and combat surface dehydration. The lotion has a good consistency with little to no scent. The Bio Swiss Mini Tweezers are adorable but will take some getting used to. They don't open up that much so you have to be extra precise when plucking! Lastly, I also got a Essenza Luxury Hand Soap in the french lavender scent. I'm not huge on lavender, so I may just gift this to someone. I actually used to use one of the Bath and Body Works sleep time lotions in lavender and it ended up giving me headaches. But it could just be whatever they use in their products because most of their stuff has that affect on me.

Overall I was really happy with this month's box. They also sent me coupons to use, which is always nice! If you're interested in receiving five deluxe beauty samples yourself, you can sign up for your own box here at only $12 a month!

Disclosure: The items mentioned above were sent to me by Beauty Box 5. All opinions are 100% my own.

April Favorites: Beauty, Film & Geekyness

April has come and gone! The highlight for me was definitely going to Star Wars Celebration. I've shared a lot about our experience at the event over on my Star Wars website of fourteen years Anakin And His Angel. There were a few other things that made my "favorites list" as well. Let's take a look...

I received my Wal Mart Beauty Box last month and received this full-size Rimmel Lond Lash Accelerator Mascara. It has a natural lash-grow complex and promises that your lashes will appear 117% longer in 30 days and instantly look 80% longer after applied. I will definitely say that it is GREAT at lengthening. I've been spoiled by The Falsies my Maybelline though which lengthens and thickens. But when my Falsies started running dry, I applied the Lash Accelerator first and The Falsies afterwards to thicken and add a little extra volume and they made a great combo! I wouldn't say Lash Accelerator is a bad mascara by any means. I really like the formula and appreciate the real bristles!

This 1 oz. sample of Skinfix Hand Repair Cream came in my Influenster Box box a while back. It's dermatologist recommended, fragrance-free and made up of natural ingredients, including 1% colloidal oatmeal which is the ideal skin fix for eczema, dermatitis and extreme dryness. I really like how thick and creamy the lotion is. It feels like it definitely coats and protects my hands and provides immediate results. I try to remember to use it before working or right before bed so it stays on longer since it's a little pricey. The 2 oz. to-go version is $17.99 at Target while the at-home bottle (with pump) is $20.00 for 12 oz.

I found this new Star Wars pouch from LoungeFly (not available online just yet!) at one of the exhibitor booths at Star Wars Celebration! I absolutely love the Original Trilogy comic style print and the striped lining on the inside. I've been using it to hold coupons and receipts but it can also be used for make-up or anything really. If you think this is cute, check out their coin purses on this page! If you're interested in seeing more of my purchases from the convention, watch this video!

April Favorites: Beauty, Film & Geekyness

I wasn't going to add this movie to my favorites just yet but I did see part of the movie the day before it was released (April 30th). I say "part of" because I had to leave in the middle of the movie. I had gone to see it at one of my favorite theaters which has a new RPX sound system on one of their screens. The movie started and my brother pointed out that the sound was off. It did seem lower, but not so bad where you couldn't hear it. Suddenly, whatever problem they were having was fixed and the RPX came on. It was so loud! I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to handle it. An action scene began and the bass was out of control. It felt like it was going through my entire body. My heart started racing and then the anxiety kicked in. My heart was pounding so hard and I started shaking! I had to leave. It was unbearable. Obviously I was bummed, but luckily I got to see it with my husband the next morning. I really enjoyed the film but I do like the first better. The action was great and I enjoyed getting to know some of the members of the Avengers team better. The villain was a unique one, though I think writers these days need to come up with something else for villains to desire than wanting to destroy the world, you know what I mean? I would say more, but I don't want to spoil anything for those who haven't seen it. If you've seen it already, let me know what you thought!

Have a great weekend! xoxo

What I Wore

Longline Safari Jacket: Cotton On
Top: Anthropologie
Knit Jeggings: American Eagle
Franco Sarto Sandals: Nordstrom
Crocheted Ring: c/o Harvester Products
Necklace: Origami Owl
Bag: Old Navy
Sunglasses: c/o Sunglasses Shop

My mom, sister, and I had the opportunity to shop at Company D, a warehouse around the corner from Disneyland where cast members and their friends can shop discounted Disney merchandise. They had so many amazing things at 50% off, even items that are still full price at the parks! I can't wait to go back! I picked up a magnet set with artwork done by Jerrod Maruyama featuring four of the Disney Princesses. His work is always so adorable!

We were hungry after shopping, so we went over to Downtown Disney for lunch and then a little more shopping! We ate at Earl of Sandwich where I ordered a delicious cobb salad. While browsing around afterwards we found a new pressed penny machine! I chose Tinkerbell, isn't she cute? Lastly, we stopped in the WonderGround Gallery where I purchased one of Jerrod Maruyama's newest Star Wars art prints in the form of a postcard. All of their post cards that they sell there are 5x7, which is perfect for framing!

The weather was warm but with a super nice breeze. I was wearing an older top from Anthropologie will my new safari duster/jacket from Cotton On. It's a lighter jacket with great detailing. I love the way it moves and have been pairing it with everything lately. You'll also notice my lovely crocheted ring by Harvester Products. It's a new item in the shop and let me tell you, it's the most comfortable statement ring I've ever worn! You can order one yourself for $7 here. Oh, and how cute is my new "blog" charm from Origami Owl? I've never seen anything like it before!

It was a good day!

P.S. I'm having lap top troubles right now. I believe it is the battery, so I ordered a new one which is supposed to arrive around this time next week. I am going to try and get on my husband's computer to post when I can. Wish me luck with everything!
