The Honey Roast

Turning our negative thoughs about ourselves into positive ones! 

I bet you are wondering what this link up is all about! I was super excited this week when Sarah from Sarah's Spiel contacted me about co-hosting this link up! I have never co-hosted before, and it sounded like so much fun! Sarah and I both agreed that sometimes we find that we "roast" ourselves, and not in a good way. I think this is something we ALL do at times. Sarah had the perfect term for this - vinegar roasting. She decided that we need to "honey" roast more, or think kinder thoughts of ourselves. This is so so true, and I have a bad habit of putting myself down, even if it's just in my own head. So here's to honey roasting, and some positive thoughts for myself!  

--->This is probably true for lots of us - I feel so silly taking my OOTD pictures outside - and even sillier asking my husband to help. What I need to say to myself is "But I know my blog friends get it and will love it! I'm going to rock this OOTD post tomorrow!"

--->Sometimes, I feel guilty watching reality TV. My latest obsession is Dance Moms. But I should be thinking that I've had a long week and its so nice to unwind watching a little drama!

---> I try so many crafty things, and occasionally one flops terribly! Instead of thinking how bad it is, I need to remember all the awesome DIY's I'm so good at! Some of the posts on this blog are a great reminder!

---> One thing I know I'm great at, is rocking high heels anytime, anywhere!

---> I also know that I am an awesome puppy-mom, and have a pup who loves his snuggles at bedtime with me!

---> I can shop the heck out of any sale, in any store.

Now it's your turn! What are some negative thoughts that you can turn around to be positive! Feel free to link up with us today!

  1. Great post!! Such a fun idea! I always feel so weird and awkward doing OOTD pictures too! Especially when people stop and stare LOL! And don't worry, I watch a LOT of tv shows I feel guilty (ok not really, but I should) about so you aren't alone there!

  2. LOVE this post--something we all need to be reminded of is to be more kind to ourselves :) Someone once told me you would never tell a 5 year old version of yourself that she was fat, ugly, or not good enough so why the heck would you tell you older self that! So true--I always watch reality tv--like all the time , so no worries ha! and I think we all feel so stinkin awkward taking ootd pic for sure!


  3. Who doesn't love puppy snuggles?! :) They make all the other puppy related chores totally worth it.


  4. This is such a fun idea! I love the positivity it brings because I know I definitely struggle with complimenting myself close to as much as I criticize myself!

  5. Such a fun idea, I love positive! Something I've been thinking a lot lately is when someone compliments me, I can't just take it. I am so quick to say "yeah, but..." So I'm working on that. And selfies for sure :)

  6. You can definitely rock those heels! and I love your DIY's. I still haven't even started anything with that shelf.... lol

  7. Being a good puppy mom is definitely something to be proud of! :)

  8. Rocking heels any time is for sure a plus, as are DIYs that succeed :) Cute linkup idea, girls!

  9. I really loved this link up! Thanks for hosting! I am new to your blog and I cant wait to read more! Thanks for sharing!!! This was a tough one!

  10. I'm a Dance Moms fan too, which makes me a little embarrassed, ha! What a fun linkup!

    I do what I want.

  11. What a great post, I think we always get in the habit of talking badly about ourselves and instead we should be more positive and continue to be more positive towards other women. I always feel silly taking blog photos too so I tend to avoid it, but you've inspired me to try it again!

  12. I love this post! :) Super inspirational and gave me a new outlook. Definitely needed the positive vibes today :)


  13. Being a puppy mom is the best thing ever. <3
