On The Line | No. 23

Happy Friday friends! I'm so ready for the weekend but that's basically every Friday. What are you all up to this weekend? I don't think it's going to as balls hot as it was last weekend so that's plus. 

What do you think of today's On The Line words of wisdom?

Either You Run The Day, Or The Day Runs You.  This is one my favorites because I think it speaks to the mental toughness that is needed to get through some days, tasks, or situations. I've talked about my recent mental struggles at the range and at the end of that session I had to make a choice. Sulk in my terrible performance or figure out a way to evaluate the issues and move on. You hold the cards and are in control of the choices you make. You can choose to pull up those big girl panties or throw your hands in the air and give up. Sure there are going to be some days that just plain ol' suck and it's perfectly fine. One those days take the necessary time you need to handle it. For all the other days, try not to let things bother you...make a choice to deal with it and continue on with your day.

 
 

Around The Web

The internet is full of awesome, beautiful, and strange things; wouldn't you agree? I'm pulling my favs and sharing them with you.  I've rounded up my top loved links from stories, recipes, style, animal cuteness...basically anything and everything. Some old, some new, some you may have already seen but nonetheless something to take your mind off that daily grind.  So grab your cup of coffee or cocktail (it's never to early) and click away. Cheers.

So real quick. I'm changing the format up a bit for the links I'm sharing. Instead of splitting them up by category I'm just going to list them all.  I'll make note of the category so you can easily find what you're interested in. I was beginning to feel that the old format forced me to have a certain number of links for each category. If I had more links for one category that I wanted to share then I needed to have equal amounts for the others. Maybe a little OCD on my part but I started feeling like I had to go out and find links instead truly sharing ones that I personally enjoyed or thought you would enjoy. So hopefully you like this new layout and if  you prefer it the other way let me know.

  • {Beauty} I'm obsessed with all of the lipsticks created by Bite Beauty. They just released their multi-stick which can be used as blush, eye shadow, and lipstick...and it's awesome! I bought the color Papaya & have been testing it out for an upcoming trip. I'm loving it as a blush & lipstick  (haven't tried it as an eye shadow yet). The best part is that it's all natural. If you're interested is seeing the colors swatched on skin and face, check out their Instagram account - they did an awesome job revealing each of the colors.
  • {Style} I'm a sucker for ankle boots especially for fall and this grey booties with the side cutout would be so cute in the summer (not the hottest days) and in the fall. Hello transitional shoe.
  • {Mind, Body, & Soul} In case you didn't know I'm a bit obsessed with all things related to gut-health. I can't read enough about it and in turn eat things to help with it. After all, the gut is your bodies second brain. Curious about ways to get your gut in check? Check these five ways to getting your gut health on track.
  • {Lifestyle} I love a good paper planner. So I've tried a bunch out and the verdict is still out on which ones and methods I prefer. But I'm seriously envious of all the planner enthusiasts that take their planner skills to another level. Check out how awesome there planners look. I need to hire one of them to do my planner haha.
  • {In Case You Missed It on SMT}
