Look good, feel good, do good. 6 words, 3 phrases, 1 everyday motto to success.

1. Look Good. Get up every morning and invest in yourself. Invest in the way you do your hair, the natural makeup or skincare you put on your face, and most importantly, the clothes you put on your skin. Your appearance says a lot about you, especially when a person doesn't know you. When I first meet people, I tend to be on the quieter side so I gain confidence knowing that I'm wearing an outfit that represents exactly who I am. For me, this is a way to show my personality to others before I even speak. My goal is to walk into a room and always have a presence..."Hey, I'm here, and I'm confident in myself and my goals."

2. Feel Good. Feel good in your natural skin and fuel your body with the nutrients it craves. For me, this means fueling my body with vegan foods...mainly fruits and vegetables and never, ever, ever processed foods. Healthy, vegan foods give me energy to feel good all day long and allow me to be confident in my skin. Regardless if your diet may be different than mine, how you treat your body mentally and physically, and what you put into your body, is always reflected on the outside and ultimately impacts how you feel...remember that.

3. Do Good. Strive to be the type of person you would want to look up to. For me, this means striving to be a person who cares about the global world, focuses on the positive, is continuously improving, and acts as an inspiration to others. These values include performing actions as small as smiling to a stranger, or as big as raising awareness for sustainable lifestyle practices. No matter the size of the action, as long as your action has a purpose and a positive result, then you've done good.

How will YOU look good, feel, good and do good today?

Smiling - My Favorite Accessory

This summer, I had the opportunity to intern in New York City. With this commitment came a daily commute of three hours. During my first week, I was eager to go to work and smiled at my fellow commuters at I got on and off the train. However, I quickly noticed that this smile was almost never returned. As each week passed, I found myself getting caught up in this negativity so much so that I actually became the commuter who didn't smile back! On one of my most negative days, I went to get my usual Dunkin Donuts coffee (w/ almond milk of course #vegan), and as the barista handed me my coffee, he said, "You should smile more often, your smile is gorgeous". From that day forward, my smile returned and became my favorite accessory.

So do me a favor...go smile, and while you're at it throw on a cute, sustainable outfit too.
