Why are we forever fascinated by what people carry inside their purses? I have no idea either, but here are Emma Watson’s red-carpet essentials… [And yes, gummy bears are always a necessity!]
Last Monday, I uploaded a video about How to Know if You’re Being Played. I recommended a book that I believe every girl needs to read. While that book is considered to be very manipulative, the only real way to spot manipulation is to understand how it’s done. While I don’t promote manipulation, I do believe that being persuasive is an important life skill.
MANIPULATION: Tricking people into doing things that will only benefit you and negatively impact them.
PERSUASION: Getting people to do things that will benefit and add value to both of your lives and experiences.
Even though that book was written with guys in mind, it’s a great source of inspiration for anyone interested in being more persuasive and more in control in their relationships. Below are my 3 Signs he’s playing you — besides the “If he’s talking to a lot of girls” or “If he has a six pack.” Girls, players come in many different shapes, sizes, and packaging. If you think the “more to love” guy will be more honest and forthright, as a former “chubby-chaser”, I can testify that ain’t always the case.
Confession: Ever since I was a little girl, I was always obsessed with the Oscars. If you saw my Draw My Life, you’ll know that as a kid I loved movies and always wanted to become an actress. The Oscars is where the kinds of movies I love are celebrated. I’ve always wondered what it’d be like to be there. Well, thanks to Jennifer Lawrence’s awesome best friend, Laura Simpson, I now have an idea!
This past week, Laura posted an essay giving a complete play-by-play of everything that goes on leading up to the event and what happens when the show is over! Thanks, girl!
