Show Your {Nice} Heart

Have you seen my latest article for Independent Fashion Bloggers? It's about the Importance of Paying It Forward as a blogger. 

We often get caught up in work, emails, phones, errands, and never-ending "to-do" lists that in the grand scheme of life don't matter. What matters is how we treat people, the strength of our relationships and what we give back.

"It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice." This quote is one I've been reflecting upon lately. Giving back is becoming more and more important to me as I think about what I personally strive for in life and my goals for making a difference. I'm excited to keep growing my blog, not only because it's a great creative outlet, but also as a means to help share and participate in philanthropic efforts. To me, that's the root of it all. If I can make even a tiny imprint for important causes, that'd be amazing. 

Today I'm participating in #ShowYourHeart. Diet Coke is donating money in support of women's  heart health initiatives for every #ShowYourHeart hashtag shared on Twitter or Instagram. Side bonus -Every day a chosen winner will win a free trip to the Red Dress Collection Fashion Show in NYC! 

Minimal effort for a whole lot of good and possibly a free trip - What are you waiting for? Take those heart pics and share! 

Swing by Instagram to see the pic I ended up sharing!

  20. "We often get caught up in work, emails, phones, errands, and never-ending "to-do" lists that in the grand scheme of life don't matter. What matters is how we treat people, the strength of our relationships and what we give back."

    I love that! So darn true. One of my friends just lost her husband and this is ringing so true each and everyday as I am helping her and trying to be there for her. It's funny how a lot of these things that I worry about aren't that big of a deal at the end.

  28. I always love your articles on IFB! It is always more important to be nice; I read another article a few weeks ago from a prominent blogger with similar sentiments who was even talking about how it wasn't common for people to thank sponsors or brands for items or opportunities which surprised me. Love these sweet pictures too :)
