How to Be Happier in 2015

Wow! It's 2015! How did that happen??? I remember when it was 2000, I was thinking " 2015 I will be so grown up and the world is going to be completely different". And it is... Time flies and we all wish we could stop it, but we can't. Days pass, months pass and eventually years pass just like moments, so we better get on track and enjoy every moment life has to offer. I was thinking about the new year, new goals, new dreams, new directions and of course.. resolutions.
I don't believe in setting definite or restictive goals as new year's resolutions. We all know that we work hard the first couple of weeks of the new year and then simply forget about them. Instead, I try to introduce little changes in every day life and stick by them. My current list is:
- eating a little healthier (avoid sugar and alcohol when possible);
- working out more (instead of watching two movies in one day like I sometimes do, I can actually watch one and work out for one hour instead of the other one);
- reading more (I mean actual books, versus magazines, online news and all that... I am a strong believer in books as a main source of knowledge, motivation and self development);
- and overall be happier...
But how can you be happier? My belief (and it's also a well known fact) is that happiness comes from within. I have been preparing for this resolution for quite some time last year and, after reading several books and articles, I couldn't find a better formula than Mr. Shawn Achor. Here are the main 5 things he suggest to do to become a little happier.

Casual Cool

More and more often, I love throwing a long oversized sweater over a pair of leggings for a comfy and chic look. The accessories have to be cool though, so I wore my favorite Marants (they actually matched my sweater perfectly!) and cool new sunnies. No bag this time. Yes, sometimes I don't take a bag with me because I drive most of the time and can leave a few items I take with me in the car. If it's a quick errand, I prefer to stay extra comfortable with no bag attached :) By the way, I wrote a whole article about my bags (why I have so few and why I prefer designer bags) on Loehmann's site. Click here to read it. And tell me what you think!

The weather is very hot in LA and I am feeling young and playful in the look by Hi! Expectation. I recently got into backpacks (first time since middle school!) and this one from MCM is my current fave. Happy Sunday!

Brigitte Love

On a  gloomy sunday I wore my Isabel Marant sneakers with new clothing that I bought in Europe. I chose to complete the look with my Celine bag - I know, it's so typical, but I don't care :)

Look Great Under $100!

We all love great deals, especially when we can get quality products for a great price! With new Abercrombie 50% off ENTIRE store discount, I managed to put together a stylish and very cozy look for less than a $100! Check out their mind-blowing deals on their website and let me know what you are planning to get. Exciting, isn't it? :)

White on White

It's incredibly hot in LA these days and there is no better color to wear than white. I created a little of the sixties vibe by adding these fun sunnies from Topshop.
