Dude, we are already NINE days into 2015. How, Jesus? Why, Lord!

Early last year, I started reading a book called The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. In the introduction, she talks about resolutions and defining her own personal commandments. She came up with twelve. The first and I think the most important of her twelve was "Be Gretchen". Simple in concept yet realistically so hard to do.

Think about that. In a world where we are constantly bombarded with imagery to be everything but who we are, that first commandment says to find out who you are, like who you are and fight everyday to relentlessly and unapologetically be that person.

*logs off to go find a corner*

Whenever I get around to writing my commandments, "Be Tiffany" will be highlighted, bolded and underlined as a friendly reminder to never waiver, never settle, and to unapologetically be me.


In continuing to be me, I'm coming into this new year in some multi-colored faux fur realness. One thing is for sure, when you have a look that's a little bold and a little daring, you have to own it. Believe in the look without hesitation. You can't walk into a room with faux fur, fringe, snakeskin, a J-Lo'd dress, a bare leg and be timid. Nah, boo. Practice at home, own that look. If not, do us all a favor and find something else to wear. 

I strive to always wear my clothes and never let them wear me!
