What to Wear to Stand Out

It’s Friday Bloggers!

We made it through the week! It’s finally time to kick back, relax and enjoy the weekend. The question now is, what are you going to wear out? That’s the question that pops into everyone’s mind once they decide to go out with their friends instead of staying in with a glass of wine and Netflix (I know that’s what you all actually want to do).

When you are deciding what to wear, aka pulling everything out of your closet and throwing it on your apartment floor till you find the perfect outfit, make sure you find an outfit that stands out. Be risky with your outfit choices. Throw on some cool leather or put on a chunky necklace. Be bold and different! Everyone has a different style so bring that to the table. It obviously depends where you are going out, but wherever it is don’t be afraid to make your outfit your own. For me, the most important part of my outfit is my shoes. Shoes can really make or break an outfit. I like to make my “stand out” item in my outfit be my shoes. So I’ll wear a cool chunky heel, or a bright stiletto to really bring the outfit together.

Whatever you decide to put on that fabulous body of yours, make it your own! Wear something that you have never worn before. It might be the night that you get the attention of that cute boy that works with you (if you are going out together). Hope you all enjoy your weekend! Have fun, be safe, but have fun!

Nice Guys Should Finish First

Screen shot 2014-05-08 at 10.50.14 AM

Why do we as girls always go for the bad boys? As I was talking to my friends I realized that not many girls go for the good, nice guys.  Girls want a challenge and they want to be unwanted.  They want for a guy to act like they are uninterested and as if they could never get them.  It’s a mentality that most girls in their 20s have.  But why do we do this? Why do we let all the good guys pass us by just so we can be messed around by the guys who are just looking for a one night stand? I don’t exactly know the answer to this question, but I would have to say, my best guess is because girls love the chase.  A guy can get a girls attention by acting like they are their number one girl one night and then not texting them for a week.  Then all the girl can think about is, why hasn’t he texted me? Did i do something wrong? Is there another girl? The guy has gotten exactly what they want, to be the number one thing on the girls mind and the girl has officially gone psychopath. Now all they can think about is this guy and his where a bouts.

But the saying nice guys finish last doesn’t necessarily have to be true. Girls can go for the nice guy and end up being more than pleasantly surprised.  Yeah, going for the “bad ass” can be exciting and cool for like a sec, but in the reality of the situation, isn’t what a girl wants in life and in a relationship is to be wanted and thought about and felt special? That’s what every girl wants and if you find the right guy that is exactly what you will get.

So girls don’t let all the nice guys pass you by, stop friend zoning them, I’m telling you if you just give one of them a chance you will see what I’m saying.  The free, I don’t care, guys can treat me how they want phase can get old quick.  And those “nice guys” that you classify as “nice guys” can surprise you in a lot of ways.  They will treat you right and they will show you a good time.  It’s a win win if you ask me.  Find that guy who makes you feel beautiful even when you’re in your old high school sweatshirt and have no make up on.  Find the guy who can look at you and make every bone in your body become rubber, because that is what you deserve.  You deserve to feel special and wanted and loved and that is what you will get if you stop fooling around with the wrong guys.

Have the relationship that everyone is jealous of and that you dreamed of having. It’ll happen you just have to give it time.

What better way to spend spring break then to go to Puerto Rico with all your best friends? Getting to explore a new place and travel somewhere different is an opportunity that you should really always take if it’s in the cards for you. This is the age when we should be traveling the world because nothing is really tying us down, well except college, but you can get around that:)
Puerto Rico is such a beautiful place with so many things to do. There’s beaches, pools, bars, waterfalls, hiking, jungles, and much more. Personally my favorite part of my trip was the hike my friends and I went on. Even though we were on vaca we had to get in a little exercise. We hiked on the coast of Dorado and were pretty much walking on cliffs. It was absolutely breath taking and something I will always remember. Even when you’re on a crazy spring break vacation you should always make time for adventures like these because these are the things that you are going to remember and take home with you. They are also FOC (Free of Charge) which is also a huge plus for us struggling college students. So please whether you’re in Puerto Rico or Costa Rica, take the time to see the country for what it is because every country has it’s treasures if you just give a little time to explore and find those wonderful places!

Good Morning Bloggers!

Good Morning Bloggers!

Good Morning Bloggers!

I just thought I’d check in and write a post since I have not in a few days. I hope you all are having a lovely Saturday morning, unless you are still recovering from last night, in that case two words, Gatorade and Advil. No matter what you are doing I hope you are making the best of it because it is the weekend! We made it through another week, and in the process of this week we also made it to Spring! Yes Spring! This means no more heavy jackets, or chunky knit sweaters. It is the welcoming of pastels and fun floral prints. So put away the black and grey and instead wear those bright colors that have been hiding in the back of your closet. I for one know the brightness can be a bit intimidating, but just think of how happy those bright colors will look in the sun and next to all those flowers coming up. Spring means summer is near and we all know we want that. I hope you all have a great first weekend of spring and get a chance to get outside and take in all the new sounds that spring brings and show off those new spring outfits. Until next time!

Words for a Monday Afternoon

Words for a Monday Afternoon

There are certain rules that I live by everyday, and I would have to say that these rules definitely apply to me. Working out, eating right, looking my best and taking control of my own happiness are things that I make sure that I do everyday. I hope you people do the same things. The only way to have the body you want is if you do your part. Never be afraid to try something new. Wear a red lip with your outfit, but don’t dress to impress anyone, do it to make yourself feel better. By looking your best you will feel your best and the people you attract in this process are the people who you want around you. Do not dress a certain way to impress that guy you work with, dress how you want to dress and if he is interested then awesome, if not there are other guys out there who will be interested in the person you are. As soon as I understood this concept and started concentrating on my happiness and making me happy, that’s when the right guy came into my life. I think this can be true for everyone, it may take a while to grasp this concept, but you will get there. You have to be happy in yourself before you can worry about anyone else’s happiness. So wear that red lip to class, or throw on that fur vest to go to the supermarket. Dress how you want and wear what makes you feel good, because in the end your own happiness is what is going to make your life a better one.

DIET the one word that haunts every girl, especially come bikini season. There are so many diets to choose from and do we actually ever know which one is going to work with our bodies? I know I always try to cut carbs, drink more water and eat things that are green. Green means good in my diet knowledge. I’m always able to shed a few pounds, but keeping it off is always a whole other problem. Then there is that whole place that us girls do not know how to navigate, the gym. What goes where, how long do I run for, am I sweating to much, do I look stupid? All questions that are going through our minds when we are working out in that big scary place.
I know when I have health questions I go to my best friend and health Guru, Tori Simeone. She is a co-founder of One Juicy Life, a company that helps us people learn how to eat better and live a healthier life. I thought it be a good idea if she sporadically posted on Eat Sleep Wear Red Lipstick to show you guys how to get the bikini body you want. So check back here for her fantastic posts! I’ll post a link to their Facebook page so you can share the love and see for yourself how awesome she is and helpful! Let’s have a summer when you feel confident in that bikini instead of hiding under your beach towel! You can do it! Bikini season here we come!

¡Delicioso!

Everybody loves food, I don’t care if it’s Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, American or Vegan foods, everyone loves food.  It’s one thing that Americans have in common and also many people around the world.  I am a huge foodie, I live to eat delicious foods.  Give me a great meal and a great glass of wine and you have made me a happy girl (hint hint boys of the world).  I got just this the other night when I met up with a friend for dinner. We decided on Mexican (after a long texting conversation of pros and cons of each type of food) cause it was what we were feeling, we then decided on going to Teqa on 31st and 3rd.  This decision was one of our better ones.  The atmosphere of this place was inviting and trendy.  Each table had its own tequila bottle to serve water and the drink menu was out of this world.  The choices were unbelievable between sangria, margaritas, punch bowls and much more.  I had the mahi-mahi tacos for dinner and I would highly recommend them, super yummy:) The prices were not terrible, but not super cheap.  The food was great so I’d say it was worth the extra few bucks, and also the restaurant itself was enjoyable to eat at.  Overall a definite positive experience for both my friend and I, we would both defiantly go back.  Teqa is definitely a place to go with a group of friends for a great meal, it is a must go!

#subwayproblems

So we all know that subways cause many problems on a day to day basis. Whether it’s a delay that causes us to be late for the big date we have been looking forward to, the creepy guy staring at us who we know is picturing us naked, or the smells of the underworld that make us want to vomit up that yogurt and granola we had for breakfast. Either way the subway is not the most pleasurable way of travel, but since we are on a college budget it is something that we have to do because we most defiantly do not have enough money to take a cab everywhere that we want to go. Cabs are for the rare occasion that we get payed a few extra dollars at work or when we decide not to eat dinner to save a few bucks (crazy idea I know). Those are the times that cabs are a plausible option. Another time that a cab could be taken is between the hours of 11 pm and 4 am after a night out. Nobody wants to be on the subway with a bunch of loud drunk people or be one of two people in a car and the other person is a man sleeping. The subway is not our favorite way to travel from place to place, but we do what we have to do. But hey, everytime you don’t take a cab that’s a few bottles of $3 wine you can buy at Trader Joes to drink with your girlfriends!

Goodmorning bloggers!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic morning, although it is a bit cold. But the sun is shining and if the sun is shining then I think it is definitely a time to wear your sunglasses. Sunglasses always make me feel like summer is near so throw on your best shades and head out to work or class feeling positive and determined to have a great Thursday. If you feel like you need an extra boost this morning head over to Juice Generation. There are a bunch throughout the city and there you can get fruity or veggie goodness for your body. This morning I had a wheat grass shot and a Mr. Greengenes smoothie, both were delic. I’ll post a link so you can find a location near you, but have a great day people, it’s almost Friday!

Allow Me To Introduce Myself

 

Hey ya’ll
I’m Megan and this is me.  This blog will have everything from great restaurants to try with your friends, to up and coming fashion ideas to try if you are feeling daring, to anything interesting that I think is something worth sharing.  I am a struggling college student living in New York City, and we all know what that means.  Countless nights eating Ramen noodles, or cheap pizza wishing my life was more like Carrie Bradshaw or Serena Vanderwoodsen.  We all know apartments in the city are the size of a closet and are ridiculously expensive, but what’s a girl to do.  What 20 something year old wouldn’t want to live in the greatest city in the world.  You have everything right at your fingertips, whether it’s a good glass of wine or a museum that is worth exploring, it is all right here.  So if you’re interested in having a good time with your girlfriends, or your boyfriend or just want to keep up with the hot spots in the city, check back here and hopefully I can teach you a thing or two through what I am living every day.
Kisses xo,
Megan
