Hey darling,

I would have to live by these rules:

1) Even if you have never done it before, it doesn't mean you can't do it, you just need to try/learn.

- this rule has led me to get jobs I never thought I would. Nope, I have never done up a PR plan, but heck, I am willing to learn!

2) Never say no to an invite

- whether it be to a friend's birthday or to a work conference, say yes. Aside from the free food and drink (always a bonus!) you never know who you will meet. Some of the best opportunities come from going to an event where you don't quite know anyone!

3) Where ever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine

- a smile and a happy vibe never goes astray!

I love your blog, style and outfits, they make me jealous cause you are so blooming gorgeous and cute!! I like rule 5 of yours the most as I don't do this enough. The one rule I live my life by is to listen to others comments and ideas as this will help you immensely.

I always strive to be myself - cliche but I love the saying 'Be yourself because an original is worth more than a copy" But always be yourself in great shoes ;-)

I love this quote (especially for the troubles that have occurred as of late): "when you feel that you cannot go any further, just know that the strength which carried you this far will take you the rest of the way".

Oh, and I tweeted about the giveaway:

1) You can't change what people will think about you so stop trying
2) Give more than you take
3) Actions speak louder than words
4) If you make an effort with your appearance, you will feel brighter and more confident
5) A splash of red in an outfit is always fabulous!

Merry Christmas hun!

Love how the sparkler looks in that photo! One of the rules I try to live by is this quote by Goethe: “Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” I have this quote on a fridge magnet, and keep it near my computer to motivate me whenever I start procrastinating.

My rule? It's a new one but I'm working on it: if it doesn't scare you, it's not worth doing. (Fortunately, I only remember this when I'm actually frightened so it never stops me from eating cake or having a nap or something.)

Katherine Tealeaf said...

Judge someone by how they treat the people around them, and not only by how they treat you.

k said...

Live life fearlessly, live in the moment. And to be kind to yourself, we are the creators of our own happiness and we must take responsibility for everything we do.

great competition!

Izzy said...

I love all your tips!

this one is my ultimate favourite rule to live by:
"be a better person than you were yesterday".

it's simple and short, easy to remember, and so effective. Each day is a new chance to improve ourselves!

The main rule that I try to live by is if it won't make you mad in a weeks time than it's not worth getting mad about it.

My rule - Don't waste time dwelling on worries now if you won't worry about them in a month's time. Saves me from falling into pits of anxiety many times!

Wow, I love your rules, they are all so true! My rule is: stay positive. Even though everything goes wrong, there will always be that one thing that can make you happy, and hold on to that happy thing throughout the unhappy period.
Another rule: SMILE. (makes your brain think you are happy, eventhough you are not. I really love the science thing about it, but I actually simply love to smile. Makes me happy.)
