Processed with VSCO with c3 presetThis topic is a tough one because it’s going to sound harsh, however we really want to make it positive and inspiring. The point behind it is to remove any negativity from your life and to realize that the types of friends we are describing below don’t deserve to be your friend for one reason or another. If being friends with someone is “hard work” or “stressful” then why are you friends with them? Friendship should be easy, rewarding, supportive, and fun. It shouldn’t contain jealousy, bullying, or blame. Now again keeping in mind that friendship is a relationship so there will be points of conflict or disagreement, however in small doses and for valid reasons. If you do find yourself involved with a friend that we describe below, we think it is best for you to move on from that friendship. Let us know if you agree!

 

  1. The friend that creates drama

 

Luckily for both of us, these friends have been long gone since high school! No one wants someone that is always drama filled, especially as life continues to get harder as we get older. These types of people feed off of drama and almost need it in their life. If you find that your friend is always starting an argument with you from something very insignificant or you are always walking on eggshells with this person, you should say bye bye bye.

  1. The friend that chooses a man over you

Ohhh this is a personal favorite!! We could go on and on about this one but we will keep it as short as possible. It’s exactly what it seems… a friend that constantly chooses a man over you does not deserve to be your friend. Now there is a difference (and trust us we aren’t completely innocent with this one); friends are going to hang out with their significant others, it’s a given. The difference though is if you make plans with this friend and then they either cancel because their man suddenly became available or they try to be sneaky and make some sort of excuses to why they can’t hang out. Also, if you had a single friend that suddenly gets into a relationship and you never hear from them again, tell them you hope that relationship lasts because you won’t be here if they try to come crawling back! (too harsh? Nah!)

  1. The flake friend

Somewhat similar to above where this person suddenly cancels plans, however it might not be because they are in a relationship. They just cancel for no reason and “disappear” for a few weeks before they resurface again. They can’t be relied on and you should not fully commit your Saturday night to them because chances are … they will cancel. It is like they almost make plans with you and then decide to go elsewhere if there’s a better option for them. We don’t recommend keeping a friend like this in your life, however if you do, you should set the expectation with yourself ahead of time that they probably won’t stick to the plan.

  1. The friend that doesn’t reciprocate support

This is the friend that expects support from you, however does not give it in return. They expect for you to be available and to be there for them at the drop of a hat, however when you suddenly need them, they aren’t there. A friendship is a two way street and you should equally be there for each other. At one point or another one of you will need the strength of the other person, that’s what friendship is for! Also, even in regards to going out and having fun. If someone is constantly expecting you to come out with them when they invite you, however when you invite them and they don’t come out, is that even a friendship anyway?

5. The friend that has bad habits 

We all have flaws, however this friend has some bad habits that might suddenly start affecting your life. Whether they party too much, don’t take care of themselves, or are constantly negative; you may find that their habits are starting to have an affect on your own life. Someone that is always wanting to go out in the middle of the week may be hard to say no to at first. If you find that you are now falling under their influence and it is something that you do not agree with, it is okay to be selfish and choose yourself over them!

 

 

Why we are Ready for Fall!

summer1summer3summer4summer2We’ve been seeing articles everywhere about the “Summertime Blues” and how the end of summer can drastically impact your mood. While we can both understand the reasons why this might occur, Sass and Sweetness are in a different boat over here! We are actually happy to let summer go and welcome fall with open arms. So we are sharing some of our last summer pictures and sharing why we are ready for fall!

We recently posted a picture mentioning the end of summer and we received a comment by someone who got very technical with things. They made sure to let us know that summer doesn’t end until September 21st… and while we appreciate this person for stating the true facts (there’s sarcasm here), we [mentally] feel that summer ends when August ends and when the school year starts. Neither of us are in school, but it’s just a subconscious thought that we automatically reset and get back in the groove of things when school goes back in session.

Fall is personally Sweetness’ favorite season but there are so many things that we can both agree that Fall offers. It’s time for a new start, a new beginning. Not in a New Year’s resolution type of way, but we seem to get back on a regular schedule and be more structured… again it must be the subconsciousness of “going back to school”.

It allows for new outfit changes and to be those basic bitches that we are… the leggings, over the knee boots, cozy sweaters, and structured hats. Do we dare say we are excited for pumpkin spice lattes too? Well we generally don’t drink those (just like toooo much sugar) but yes – it’s the pumpkin spice everything and the color of the leaves changing that is more romantic and cozy.

Though the temperature is dropping, the outdoor activities are now different than just going to the beach. There’s Oktoberfest, Chowder fest, and pretty much any other type of festival under the sun. We can go to pumpkin patches, apple picking, and eat apple cider donuts without having to worry about being in a bathing suit anytime soon. And we can’t forget about some of our favorite shows that are starting in the Fall:

  • Ozark (August 31st)
  • Shameless (September 9th)
  • This is Us (September 25th)
  • Modern Family (September 26th)
  • Ray Donovan (October 28th)
  • House of Cards (November 2nd)

So goodbye summer and hello fall! We need an excuse to binge watch TV without feeling guilty it’s a beautiful, sunny day outside. Oh wait… it literally rained the whole summer so keeping our fingers crossed that fall also brings drier weather and frizz free hair!

Are you excited for fall or are you experiencing summertime sadness?

Yummie released a new tank top, the 6-in-1 Shaping Tank and we are OBSESSED! No matter your body type, this tank is made for you. While Yummie may not have had your name in mind while designing it, they have thought of just about everything when it comes to function and styling. Here’s what we love about this new high compression tank:

The Panels: There are panels inside the tank that are moveable! Yup, remember when we said this tank was made for you, well it can truly be tailored to your body. To smooth out your tummy, place both panels in the front. To smooth out love handles, place both panels in back, or for all-around smoothing, put one panel in front and one in back. It’s that simple! Generally we are fans of all-around smoothing but depending on how we are styling the tank we change it up. For example, when wearing the tank on its own we definitely want that all around smooth look but when wearing the tank with a cardigan we put both panels in front for an extra smooth tummy since our backs are covered. Do what works for you!

The Grip Tape: Yummie included non-silicone grip tape on the bottom hem of the tank so that it doesn’t ride up! Is this not the most genius thing ever?! That was truly one of our only concerns with the tank is that it would ride up but the grip tape holds the tank in place to your legs and you don’t even know it’s there!

Necklines: The tank can either be worn as a v-neck or a scoop neck for all of your styling needs!

Versatility in Styling: This tank can be worn like a bodysuit tucked into jeans or under a sheer blouse or dress. The 6-in-1 Shaping Tank can be worn on it’s own or as an under garment!

Yummie developed a product that can truly be worn by everyone. Sweetness loves bodysuits and Sass believes this tank to be what postpartum dreams are made of! No matter your body type or style, this tank is for you. It comes in black, white, or frappe in sizes XS to 3X and runs TTS. Get yours today for that #yummietothecore look and feel! Clearly, we highly recommend it!
