You're Looking Fabulous Today!

Lately, I've been thinking about how there are so many different types of pretty.
If you look, you can find something beautiful in everyone.
I'm a big people watcher, it is one of my favorite things to do.
I also LOVE to compliment, i never feel stupid approaching a stranger and telling them i like their dress/ they have gorgeous hair or i just LOVE those shoes!
I was at Yankee stadium a few weeks ago and the girl in front of me was wearing a gorgeous lacy dress. Might sound fancy but it was casual enough for daytime.
I didn't think twice before asking where she bought it and telling her she looked great in it.
She smiled, I'm sure it made her day (or at least her hour).
I smiled, because i love seeing the joy that even a little, if superficial, compliment can give.

Men prefer brief praise, pitched high; women are satisfied with praise in a lower key, just so it goes on and on. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook

I'm going to make it my goal to give at least 3 genuine compliments a day.
Who's with me? ;)

I totally agree! I will walk up to people and ask them where they bought stuff/ compliment them and it not only makes me feel better but them too!

Oh I think I would love you in real life!
Compliments people are so great and here's why:
Plenty of people [this is me] think up compliments, and like someone's shoes or hair or face and don't say anything.
But to be told that you look especially nice?
How good does that feel!
And I bet it feels good to you, too, right?

Do you do that, really? I think it's fantastic! I've never done it before but it would definitely put a smile on my face if a complete stranger complimented me. I'm your newest follower!
