Posted on February 09, 2015 by Lucy Marie | 0 Comments

Whether you’re counting down to candy hearts or dreading the day’s arrival, February 14th is almost here. We believe that in order to love others well, you must first take care of yourself. From February forward, make time to treat yourself. We promise you deserve it.

    3. Spend the day in pursuit of the perfect red lipstick

    7. Dance around your kitchen like no one’s watching
    8. Perform an at-home facial, complete with cucumber slices
    9. Buy flowers for yourself and put some in every room

    12. Make popcorn and marathon through your favorite films

Secrets of Simple Elegance

Posted on February 02, 2015 by Lucy Marie | 0 Comments

A life of luxury and sophistication isn’t an invite-only event reserved for the stars strutting the red carpet. True and simple elegance is a state of mind and a crucial part of living The Lucy Life. Getting there is easier than you think.

1) Eliminate The Excess Stress

Meditate on the things that are most important to you. If something doesn’t make the cut, kick it to the curb. Kindly curtsy your way out of toxic friendships, mediocre jobs, and harmful habits. Make room for spaces that allow you to grow, opportunities to do what you desire, and people that make you come alive.

2) Embrace Confidence

There’s a reason “nothing is more beautiful than a confident woman” pops up in your Twitter feed five times a week. It’s because it’s true! Flaunt your fearlessness and shamelessly appreciate every inch of your body. Know your worth and take enormous amounts of pride in what you believe in. Share those selfies and show the world what you’re made of.

3) Show Grace + Kindness

It’s the golden rule: treat others the way you want to be treated. Learn the freedom of forgiveness and the bubbly-like-champagne joy that comes from giving a compassionate compliment. Smile at food service and retail employees and overuse “thank you so much.” Say buh-bye to bitterness and bad vibes while welcoming graciousness and goodwill with an open heart.

4) Choose Quality Over Quantity

Whether it’s food, fashion, or relationships, quality always trumps quantity. Those organic peaches will give you more energy than that candy bar from the vending machine. The perfect pair of premium denim will survive many more spin cycles than the markdowns at the mall ever could. Having a few fabulous friends is better than a phone book full of frenemies.

5) Live In The Moment

Stop speeding through meals and savor every bite. Break out the good china to eat takeout on a Wednesday night. Climb a mountain instead of trudging away on the treadmill. Turn off the notifications and turn up the music. Be totally present and completely in love with the moment you are in.
