Cover Yourself with Beautiful Things....You Make Yourself
Store-bought jewelry is wonderful to wear. It's shiny, it's new, you braved unruly department store crowds to get it and most of all, it's impersonal and there's a million more out there like it.

One of the best things about cooking is exploring different cuisines from around the world. We're going to highlight another culture or country's recipes once a month.
Trying something new let's you expand your palate and opens you to new experiences. Whether you cook for fun or necessity, going on culinary adventures only enhances your skills.

Many of us deal with negative thinking; some more often than others. There are some people who have let it get so out of control that barely a positive thought crosses their minds.
I have dealt with negative thinking too. I compare it to a snowball: one negative thought comes through your mind, then it leads to another, then another, then another, until you've got a massive snowball hurdling down a slippery slope, waiting to smash you into a cliff of despondency and hopelessness. Yes, it can get that bad.
Negative thinking can also affect your body. It causes stress levels to rise, blood pressure to go up, makes you more suseptible to depression and can be a factor in heart problems. It affects your outside environment as much as it affects your inside body: it can be a hinderance to achieving your goals, as well as cause problems at work and in your relationships.
The good news is, you can beat it. Negative thinking is a habit. Habits are hard to break and they need your full attention to crack, but they are breakable. In other words, you must be dedicated and do whatever it takes.
Well, if you do it right. I said it in the About Me section: I usually dress down. Tank tops, jeans and flip-flops are my preferred outfit. Dressing tom-boyish (but looking feminine) is no easy feat in Miami, where women wear stilletoes and tight...well, tight everything.
But it's boring if you look like a clone of every woman around you and to be honest, it's easy to look sexy in the outfits they wear. I want to see some of these girls try the casual look!
Here's a voyage into the world of looking cute, effortless and most of all, comfortable, like tomboy style myse, Kristin Stewart.
I'm With The Band
A staple of the tomboy's closet is the band tee. The best places to get them is obvious: concert's, the bamd's website, etc. But it seems like every hipster store carries them now too.
Take Urban Outfitters with Junk Food Vintage The Who tee. A little pricey, you expect that from UO.
