Let Them Know Movement

In light of the holiday season 
and recent events bringing people together around me,
 I've had the opportunity to reflect and recognize the greatness in people. 

I think a lot of times in this big scary world it is easy to see how many 
wicked, bitter, mean, and confused people there are out there. 
But do we take as much time to count 
the selfless, genuine, friendly, and truly amazing people there are in this world?

I want to recognize the positive and praise the kindness.
So I've decided I don't want to sit back and think to myself how awesome these people are, 
I want to #letthemknow!!! 

People everywhere are incredible. 

There is the sweetest lady at the Sephora where I live. 
Every time I see her she is extremely kind and genuine. 
She helped me remember that everyone is beautiful in their own special way 
when I brought my sisters and she raved about their natural beauty 
that I've just become accustomed to. 
I'm going to let her know! 

A darling teenager at my favorite drink shop exudes light. 
Truly. 
She is happy and friendly. 
Always giggling and smiling. 
I'm going to let her know

The mother of one of my dancer students who waits for me to lock up every night, the nursery leader in my church who has taken care of the littles for 2 years, a beautiful woman I used to teach kindergarten with.... My list goes on and on and I am going to #letthemknow

Now if you notice... I've said "going to". 
I haven't done this yet. I'm going to be doing it with you! 
We will #letthemknow together. 
Trust me. It's going to seem weird and awkward. 
People really don't accept praise well. 
Shouldn't we change that? Shouldn't we be willing to accept our flaws AND our strengths? 
Yes. This will take time. But I'm done making excuses.
There is greatness in this world that needs to be remembered.

So here's what we are going to do... 
I've created a #letthemknow stationary. 
There are two templates. Square and letter. 
You can:

A. Download the square template 
and with a photo editing app add text to share via Instagram, FB, text, etc.

B. Download the letter template 
for you computer savvy peeps and type text in Photoshop or word and share via email or print. 

C. Print out either template 
and hand write your message to hand deliver or mail. :)

Just right click to save the images. 

If you have problems with the download feel free to contact me and I will email you the templates!

You can let ANYONE know. A grandma, spouse, the mailman, teachers, grocery store clerks, your child, a neighbor, ANYONE! 

If you feel so inclined, I would love to see if you have participated. 
Write about your experience with #letthemknow on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. 
using the #letthemknow hashtag. 
Feel free to tag my blog account @lovenotesbylauryn or my etsy account @almostnoelle. 
Even if you don't use my templates and just use a sticky note or tell someone in person, 
I want to hear about it!
Can't wait to see how it goes for everyone! 

Happy Holidays to everyone!

Basic Winter Essentials

It's about time for Holiday Parties!
If you need a simple way to look rockin' for the parties, 
you just need to put together some basics:

1-statement skinny jeans
2-nude sweater
3-chandelier earrings
4-fabulous heels
5-bold lips
go for berry or red for the holidays!


basic winter essentials



Here's my simple winter outfit featuring this great shoulder top from ZNU.


The top is SUPER cozy. 
Like for real. I want to bathe in the softness of the fabric.
The awesome thing is, you can pick it up off of Amazon...
which is super convenient!
It does come looking different than the picture. More of a thin fabric than a sweater.
I also suggest you get a size smaller than you usually wear 
(mine was fitting a little too big).

But I mean, 
LOOK HOW COZY!!! 
Perfect winter happiness. :)

skinnies: american eagle
shoes: michael kors via vinted

Enjoy your holiday festivities!

Casual Dress + Leggings + Lace-Up Booties = Perfect Fall Outfit

Hello friends!
I LOVE today's outfit. 
It is so cozy yet still stylish and cute. 
Perfect for the momma life.


d e t a i l s:
top//shein
boots//fly london
necklaces//american eagle





This top/dress is absolutely incredible.
It is SO comfortable and I love the way it flows. 
I paired it with some 
ponte leggings (which I don't think VS sells anymore {sad}.)
lace-up boots 
and layered necklaces.
LOVE the way it turned out. 
Thanks so much to SheIn for the fabulous top.
If you haven't already, 
check out shein.com for INSANE deals on some of the cutest styles around. 
You can almost always find exactly what you're looking for.


Of course being a mommy 
it's inevitable baby is going to end up in the shoot somewhere.
;)


I love this pic of our mommy & me boots! 
These are my FLY London boots.
I usually don't spend this kind of money on shoes,
but these are the most comfortable shoes EVER!
They're perfect for walking around
and they don't look like granny shoes.
SCORE!

...and since I always feel like a goof "modeling"...
Thought you might enjoy...
this picture.


yep.

Peace out lovelies.
