You’ve stumbled upon part two; you can read part one here x

Saying “no” to opportunities too often
Say goodbye to overthinking situations and letting yourself talk yourself out of opportunities. Just say “yes” and see what amazing things you could get up to.

Ungratefulness
Say goodbye to taking life for granted. Don’t complain as much and appreciate what you have, the people, the love and the support that you’re surrounded by. Go tell someone how much you love them!

Not ‘having time’ for important things
Say goodbye to not putting what’s important first. Get your priorities right and put more effort in to make time for the important things.

Being afraid
Say goodbye to the fear that you’ve built up. Whether it’s being afraid of letting someone fully in to your life, or if it’s your fear of spiders – work on it and ultimately tell yourself that you actually can conquer anything.

Cleanse your soul for the new year. Click here for Part 1.

Things you should say goodbye to before 2016 | PART 1

You’ve heard of New Year resolutions and for the most part, people never stick to them.

Instead, why not start fresh this week leading up to the new year by saying see ya later to the negativity in your life. Today and Thursday, Gold Vibez will be preparing your mind, body and soul for 2016 by letting go of the unwanted baggage you’ve maybe built up over this year.

Get ready to greet the new year with an open heart and an open mind by saying goodbye to these things.

Thinking negatively about others
Say goodbye to negative thinking about people. It’s so easy to judge a book by its cover, so focus on steering away from that state of mind. Turn it around and think positively. More empowerment!

Poisonous people
Say goodbye to people who bring a whole lot of negativity into your life. You don’t need an excuse to walk away from relationships like these. It’s okay to be in control of who you let in to your life.

Body “standards”
Say goodbye to the pressure of reaching the “perfect body”. Set your own body goals and make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons. Remember babe, you’re already beautiful.

Thinking the worst in situations
Say goodbye to being a pessimist. It’s not a healthy thing to always expect the worst all the time, so stick to being more of an optimist in the new year.

Watch this space. Part 2 coming soon.

TRON SUNNIES

It’s all about the one and only Tron Sunnies.

The Tron Sunnies are the next essential accessory that you need to get your paws on. Perfect for showing off your style, the Tron Sunnies are on every fashionista’s must-have list.

Don’t be fooled – they aren’t your average pair of sunglasses. They have very subtle colored lenses and bring back the groovy to the modern day fashion guru. The Tron Sunnies are available in 2 colors: Black border with a blue lens or Red border with a pink lens. Both are equally dope AF.

Screenshot_2015-12-21-14-49-26Let’s talk about the frames on these sunnies. For the most part, the frames are clear, but the arms have a tortoiseshell print which gives the sunnies a little luxe feel.

Screenshot_2015-12-21-14-43-43But the real show stopper is the silhouette of this bad boy. Picture a futuristic cat-eye, and that’s what the Tron Sunnies are. There’s even a dainty cut-out as part of the frame silhouette – so subtle but, it adds a whole lot of unique to it.

These sunnies will have you snapping up a pair for yourself in no time because, for real, who wouldn’t want to rock these glasses?

LOOK FORWARD TO: The Winter Morning Commute

It’s important to kick off your day in a positive mood.

There’s no need to dread those cold and early morning starts to your day. It’s time to make your mornings something to look forward to.

How? Here are a few little things that we suggest you include in your Winter morning commute.

Screen Shot 2015-12-17 at 3.01.19 pmGrab yourself a warm Coffee to-go
There’s something so comforting about having a warm coffee cup in your hands. Every sip warms you up and warms the soul!

Listen to some chill new music
The winter morning commute gives you the perfect opportunity to discover new music. Who knows… maybe you’ll find a new favorite song to play on repeat?

Swap your phone scrolling with a book
Avoid reading on your phone screen so early in the morning. Your eyes won’t appreciate it and they’ll feel sore by the end of the day. Pick up a book instead and get lost in a story.

Bring out your favorite Winter accessories
Winter means winter fashion. It’s showing off the perfect coat that you’ve been dying to wear, it’s keeping your head warm with a beanie, it’s wrapping yourself in a scarf to keep cosy!
