Wednesday Wisdom: Focus on Small Wins


Let's face it, life can be daunting. No matter how great or happy your overall life may be. Whether you a business professional working on a team you hate or a med student feeling overwhelmed by exams. We all encounter little obstacles along our path which dishearten and discourage us. BUT, there is an effective way to combat these little joy killers. Just as we can make daily deposits of change into our little piggy banks, we can likewise make deposits into our "bank if happiness" by focusing on small wins. Small wins are something that may not ordinary solicit a large gust of happiness from us but are achievements just the same.

How to wear the Pantene color of the year Radiant Orchid

Pantene Color of the Year Radiant Orchid Wardrobe Inspiration

Recently Pantene announced the color of 2014 as "Radiant Orchid". Now that 2014 is already over a week in, why not try to get into this year's color early? Below are four ways to incorporate this year's color into your wardrobe.
1. Nails: to ease into wearing this color opt for a radiant orchid hued varnish that will warm up your spirits in winter and look great by the pool in Spring.

2. Accessories: accessories are another easy way to incorporate this color into your wardrobe. Try wearing an orchid hued scarf in the winter, pointed toed flats in the spring, or a statement bag year long.

3. Makeup: Feeling a bit more adventurous? Try a sultry radiant orchid smokey eye for a fun alternative to the classic smokey eye.

4. Tops or Bottoms: Finally, the most daring way to wear this color is by going all in. Style a radiant orchid top with jeans and booties for a casual weekend look, give your favorite lbd (little black dress) a break by opting for an orchid variation or finally try out that printed pants trend by picking up a pair that incorporates this hue.
