Sunday Says…”Always Do What You Are Afraid To Do”

Loving this cute graphic print from Charm & Gumption that I was introduced to at the Good Carma Girls gifting suite this past Thursday.

Sunday says: “Always do what you are afraid to do.” I live by this mantra.

This is for all of you out there who are scared to take action today.

You CAN do anything you dare to dream.

And you really are strong enough to make the change.

BF Asks: What are you afraid to do…that you know you MUST do? (My answer today? Clearing the clutter of summer events in my house. I am a total procrastinator)

Will smith knows best...


“Hey,don’t ever let somebody tell you you can’t do something. Not even me, alright? You got a dream – you gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves – they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. Period.”

(Will Smith as Chris Gardner in THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS)

BF QOD: Priorities

When I saw this quote, all I could think was yes, Yes, YES!! Some of us need this right now more than others. I hope you are the ones reading this today. xoxo, BF

BF QOD: Priorities

BF QOD: Priorities

“Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.”

(Mark Twain via

BF QOD: Maybe a happy ending is just moving on

BF QOD: Maybe a happy ending is just moving on

“And maybe a happy ending doesn’t include a guy. Maybe it’s you, on your own, picking up the pieces, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is just moving on.”

(From the film, He’s Just Not That Into You)


BF QOD: Beautiful You

In BeautyFrosting's own words...Beautiful You

Happy Friday, beauties!
Today’s BF QOD is straight from the horsey’s mouth…mine!
That’s right! The quote is from “Beautiful You”, a song I wrote for my 2008 debut album, Sweet Time.

“You can do anything. Dance, laugh and sing. You’re carried by love. All that you see will come to be so what will you do…beautiful you?” (Dawn McCoy

I wrote “Beautiful You” for a few young friends I’d met and then, as it happens sometimes, I realized I was writing the words for myself.

I’d like to say I was writing them for adolescent me… I was writing them for my friends – and for that insecure girl who kept mocking me back in the mirror every night.

So I wrote it for other girls in hopes they might never meet that mean girl in the mirror.

Funny how that happens.

Enjoy them, share them and I hope they mean as much to you now as they meant to me!


BF Asks: What words make you feel more beautiful and secure?

BF QOD: Einstein delights…

BF QOD: Einstein Delights

“The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.” (Albert Einstein)


Oooh, I like that. A lot.

BF QOD: “When one door closes…”


Golly, girls, I’ve been guilty of this.

“When one door of happiness closes, another one opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us…” (Helen Keller)





BF Asks: Do you have a story where it felt like a door closed and then another one opened in its stead? Please share the hope so that we may have faith.
