Expressing Yourself With Your Style

Standard
Expressing Yourself With Your Style

A good marker of identity is in the choices someone makes when deciding what to look like. Of course, image isn’t everything, in fact it’s only a small part of who we are, and in most circumstances, we are given the cards we’re dealt with. Outside of temporarily wearing certain shoes, for instance, it’s hard to change our height. That’s okay, because you’re more than enough without having to change every single part of you.

Furthermore, there’s no “necessity” here. Self expression through various means is totally voluntary, you can be as simple or complex as you like. The trick is to have fun with it, and to decide what your tastes are. It might be that you love both alternative styles and more default apparel choices, both are totally valid, and can showcase different parts of who you are.

If you feel like expressing who you are anew, then, there are many ways you can make those choices. No matter if you’re in your twenties and feel as though you’re starting to know who you are, or if you’re in your forties and feel like enjoying a tattoo for the first time, consider how to achieve this in the best and healthiest manner, below:

Self Care & Health:

Self care and health is important to consider, but many people forget that this is actually a good way to express yourself. Sure, sometimes you may need to visit an emergency dentist for corrective work, but making sure you properly brush/floss your teeth can help you feel comfortable in beaming ear to ear. The same goes for skin care, which can help you positively glow, and organizing a hair care routine that helps you strengthen it, especially when planning to dye it properly. There’s no better way than investing in yourself with a little TLC and expressing yourself thanks to your newfound confidence.

Body Art & Accessories:

Body art such as piercings and tattoos as well as accessories that truly help you reveal yourself as you are can make such a difference when putting together outfits or showcasing your mood on a given day. From the types of necklace you wear to the cool classy hat you’re trying out, switching it up according to your mood helps you explore fashion and what it means to you, as well as allowing you to grow with confidence going forward.

Styles & Outfits:

Finding your “style” can be a good way to broadly categorize what you like to wear, but remember that these are warm guidelines and not specific rules. They can help you put outfits together, no matter if you hope to wear more professional clothing in your new job or if you wish to wear nice summer clothes for your vacation. Consider the event, the appropriateness of the place, what will be comfortable, what colors work for you, and what kind of arrangements can help you thrive. A nice balance of all these can grant you the best outlook.

Let your style reflect your amazing self, personality, and confidence and have some fun! That’s what it’s all about. 🙂

7 Tips For A Comfy Cozy Home

Standard
7 Tips For A Comfy Cozy Home

Your home should be a place where you can relax and be yourself, a place where you can kick off your shoes and put your feet up. If you’re looking for ways to make your home feel more, well, homelike – look no further! In this blog post, we will discuss seven ways to make your home more comfortable and inviting:

1. Get Some Greenery:

Adding plants to your home can make it feel more alive. One of the easiest ways to add a touch of homeyness to your abode is to bring in some green friends. Not only do plants add a splash of color and life to any room, but they also help purify the air. If you don’t have a green thumb, don’t worry, there are plenty of low-maintenance options out there, like succulents or snake plants. Or if you want something with a bit more personality, try a fiddle leaf fig tree!

2. Give Your Space Some Character:

One of the quickest ways to make your home feel more inviting is by adding some character to the space. If you want to infuse your space with a sense of homeyness, it’s important to decorate it with stylish items. Another way to add character is through art; whether it’s paintings, posters, or even funky knick knacks, filling your walls and shelves with things that add color will give your place that cozy feeling.

3. Bring In More Light:

Sunlight has been shown to have many benefits, from improving your mood to boosting your immune system. So it’s no surprise that one of the best ways to make your home feel homier is to let in as much natural light as possible. If you don’t have a lot of windows, consider a few new window installations, ones that are bigger than your current ones. You can also rearrange your furniture to make better use of the light coming in from your windows. And during the daytime, take advantage of that beautiful sunshine and open up those curtains!

4. Make It Smell Good:

The power of scent is often underestimated, but it can actually have a profound effect on your mood and emotions. So if you want to make your home feel more inviting and homey, focus on making it smell good. There are a few ways to do this; you can diffuse essential oils, bake some cookies, or light a scented candle. But be careful not to go overboard; you don’t want your home smelling like a department store! Instead, a few strategically placed candles or diffusers should do the trick in making your place smell delightful.

5. Get Cozy:

One of the best ways to make your home feel more homey is to make it feel cozy. And one of the best ways to do that is with blankets! Having a few different blankets around the house that you can snuggle up with is sure to make your place feel more inviting. You can also add in some throw pillows for an extra touch of comfort. And if you really want to get cozy, invest in an electric fireplace! Nothing says “home sweet home” like cuddling up by the fire with a good book and a cup of tea.

6. Play Some Music:

Whether you prefer classical music or something a little more upbeat, playing some tunes in your home is sure to make it feel like the place to be. If you have trouble finding music you like, there are plenty of streaming services with millions of songs to choose from. Or you could even create your own playlist with all of your favorite jams.

7. Make It Personal:

Your home should be a reflection of you and your personality. Hang up some photos of your loved ones or display some of your favorite art pieces. You can also add personal touches to your furniture and decor choices. If you have any hobbies, find ways to incorporate them into your space as well. For example, if you love to read, consider adding a cozy reading nook somewhere in your home.

There are endless possibilities when it comes to making your home feel more like yours. But these seven tips are a great place to start!

Creating The Perfect Focal Point In Any Room

Standard
Creating The Perfect Focal Point In Any Room

The focal point of a room is one of the most significant parts of interior design and should never be ignored. Put simply, this is the center of the space. It is the first item that your visitors notice when they enter the room, giving their eye something to rest on and it is the focal point around which you construct the remainder of your design. It also offers minor clues to the homeowner’s personality or hides an undesired design aspect that cannot be otherwise eliminated.

It is crucial to make sure that you have chosen the correct place for this showcase. This guide will help and offers all you need to know about finding the proper focal point for your space:

Emphasize the most desirable feature:

In an ideal situation, each of the rooms in your home would have an integrated focal point. In that instance, all you have to do is construct your design and decor in such a way that it draws attention to the already existing element. As a result, determining how to arrange a room becomes considerably simpler.

The following are some of the most popular forms of built-in focal points:

Windows and Outdoor Views: Windows and outdoor views are a natural choice for a focal point in any room. Regardless of what else is going on in the room, the eyes are drawn here. If you are fortunate enough to have this kind of view, all you need to do is open the windows as wide and as fully visible as possible to take full advantage of it.

Fireplaces: Fireplaces can help to bring a sense of calm to a room. It is important to create a comfortable seating area around the fireplace and hang a daring piece of art hanging over it.

Integral shelving: Shelves and fireplaces are frequently found together in the same space. Even if this is not the case, the concept is still very close. Create a seating area around the shelving and be sure to incorporate your personal style into the design.

You can build your own focal point:

Make a custom one for yourself if you do not have anything that creates a natural one for you. While this will require a little more effort, it is by no means insurmountable. As previously stated, there are numerous possibilities to pick from so select the one that best suits your needs.

Accent walls: As a general rule, if there are no built-in elements to work with, an accent wall can be constructed on the wall that is the furthest away from the room’s entrance. Make use of eye-catching paint or wallpaper, like the one found here to capture people’s attention.

Artwork: A large piece of art or a mirror can stand on its own and command attention. As a result, you will want to make certain that the item you select is large enough to accommodate the wall on which it will be installed. It should be placed at or near eye level, and accent lighting should be used whenever feasible to make the piece even more noticeable and appealing.

Furniture that makes a statement: A huge piece of furniture that is distinctive or bold might serve as an excellent focal point in a room. The dining room and the bedroom are typical examples of this, as there is clearly a focal point in the room. You will want to use accessories, such as a table centerpiece or some cushions on the bed to help direct the viewer’s attention to this area.

Some things to avoid when creating a focal point include:

  • Having more than one focal point: This can confuse the eye and distance the room
  • Only using color: Texture and pattern can also create a focal point for the eye to land on
  • Ignoring lighting: Lighting is crucial, and if possible, your focal point should have its own light source
  • Poor scaling: Not properly sizing and furnishing the area can result in a jarring tone that detracts from the overall effect of the room.

Making a decision on a focal point is one of the most crucial aspects of interior design and for good reason. This feature is the first thing that visitors notice when they walk into the space and it serves as the focal point of your design. You may take your design to the next level by making a few little adjustments to make it perfect for your space.

Goddess Style OOTD

Standard
Goddess Style OOTD

Hi! You might remember Libby from The Goddess Attainable through her guest post for lifewithlilred or our collaboration article. Libby has become a great friend and is so fun to work with that I just couldn’t wait to do another collab with her and, today, I am going to share an outfit that I feel like a goddess in. This particular outfit was one of the few that I made an effort to put together in the past year due to the pandemic and wore it to visit my cousin’s microblading studio in October. However, I never got a chance to have someone take pictures of it.

Cue: My boyfriend, Johnny! This past weekend when I asked him if he could take my blog pictures for the first time, he happily obliged and with a bit of coaching turned out to be a formidable iPhone photographer. It was impossible to not laugh every time he did his goofy photographer routine of “be a cat, be a tiger”, though!

My Goddess Style OOTD is one that I have no shame in wearing again and again and you might recognize quite a few of the following pieces from previous pictures and posts. But that’s okay! I would like to start doing a new OOTD series to help people re-imagine what they already have in their wardrobe and, because of that, this is the perfect place to start. Let’s take a look at an outfit that makes me feel confident and completely goddess-like:

155382916_465154631288978_6318509524615036438_n154947768_1432847427053432_6091356881677978900_n154820877_1127163744408149_1194119267698755927_n154532553_3665307476919260_294485375847052193_n155259232_802683593653328_6363672787409086914_n155328320_435467437735070_7080266058868519090_n155105378_2877682665799764_6072102446391178340_n154600633_798070294123538_2016725409217936514_n

Who? What? Wear?

This outfit is really amazing to me for a few reasons and the first one being: How visually interesting it is. My Goddess Style OOTD is like a master class in mixing patterns with like colors and it makes your eyes dance between each different piece. When done correctly, mixing patterns can create outfit magic. However, when done wrong it can look sloppy and we don’t want any of that!

Just remember when mixing patterns that there has to be a similar color linking each piece of your ensemble together. For example, the horizontal striped sweater wouldn’t have worked against the vertical plaid stripes of the pants if they weren’t both of a navy base color. Just like the Sugar Thrillz platforms would have looked out of place if the pink didn’t mesh with the dark rose stripes in the pants and my hair.

You also never want to overwhelm the outfit with multiple loud patterns or accessories. My sweater was bold because the pattern on the jeans used muted colors and thinner lines. I also kept my accessories to a minimum other than simple dangle earrings to keep the outfit looking sleek. You want your outfit to flow as a cohesive look and jewelry, clashing patterns, or unmatched colors all can take away from that.

My OOTD was insanely fun to style but it is even more fun to wear! The first time I sported this look, my sister told me that I looked like a Bratz doll and it was basically the best compliment I have ever received. From that point on, it has since remained in one of my top favorite outfits and I think it’s because of how perfectly it captures my personal style. I love to have fun with fashion and create statement outfits that not only look good but make me feel good and this OOTD legit makes me feel like a model.

While Goddesses aren’t afraid to show their outer beauty, they have inner beauty that speaks for itself and part of what makes this outfit special to me is how well it reflects my personality too. I am a bright, bubbly, outgoing gal who always tries to see the positive in a situation. I also love to make people smile and laugh and I truly feel like you can see all of that in this look.

My personality and fashion sense are two of my favorite things about me and I would consider them to be personal Goddess qualities. My Goddess Style OOTD showcases both of these attributes beautifully and I feel proud to be me when I am wearing it. If that isn’t goddesslike, then I don’t know what is!

I want to thank Libby of The Goddess Attainable so much again for having some fashion fun with me and you can check out her look now or tune in tomorrow to see it here. If you have any OOTDs that you are proud of and would like featured, you can always shoot me an email at: sarah.mush6794@gmail.com 🙂

What makes you feel confident? How would you describe your personal style? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Spice Up Your Look With These Fashion Tips

Standard
Spice Up Your Look With These Fashion Tips

When you pick your outfit in the morning – you get a chance to think, for just one moment, what you would like to say to the world. First impressions are everything, right? Well, the first thing we see is the clothes on each other’s backs. If fashion is a language, then it speaks to each and every one of us individually. Trends come in and out of the limelight, but the potential for great style (to use, reuse, and repurpose trends) exists in everyone. There are many styles and fashion choices out there and each style is valid.

If you want to wear a T-shirt and ripped jeans every day, then that’s your style! If you like to wear dresses and skirts with a flowy blouse, go for it! Regardless of who makes your clothes or where they came from, you can take any outfit from lukewarm to sizzling with these easy fashion tips:

Color:

There’s a sensual pull to the darker side like blacks, grays, or browns but nothing beats a gorgeous pop of color to pull the eye here and there! Consider the season: pretty pastels in the spring, bright, vivid colors in the summer sunshine, the warm and down-to-earth tones of autumn, and the cool, frosty colors of winter.

Depending on the season, you can really make a splash with the color palette of your wardrobe. Nothing says fashion quite like an understanding of how your wardrobe fluctuates with the season, shorts and billowing tops in the summer, boots and scarves under the falling leaves in autumn.

When you’re piecing together your outfit for the day, think of the components of your closet that can really set off an outfit. A warm lattice scarf can take an outfit from blah to Pinterest worthy in a second. If you don’t trust your eye, Pinterest and fashion magazines are a great place to glean inspiration for your future outfits. Don’t focus on the models – only on the clothes that draw your eye!

Layers:

When it comes to layering, you need to keep color, texture, proportion, and style in mind. Maybe you are a T-shirt and jeans type of person, and the only time you’ve layered anything is deciding which jacket to throw on over your casual outfit. This is a great place to start!

A comfy flannel thrown over a simple outfit or tied around the waist suddenly makes you look like a trend-setter. Layering in fashion is an art form, and you want to keep the outfit balanced. If you layer too much, with too many contrasting pieces, then your outfit is sure to look busier than Times Square at rush hour. Try to have fun with the different styles in your closet.

It’s important to also determine your color palette before you begin. Black and white, gold and burgundy, or camel and blue are great palettes to begin with. It entirely depends on the look you want to achieve – comfy chic, edgy glam, Audrey Hepburn, or bohemian are some styles to consider when glancing through your wardrobe.

Once you have your colors, determine your textures. Maybe you want to accentuate that silk scarf you bought or the knit gloves jammed in the back of your drawer. These textures combined with a simply layered outfit and a little forethought are sure to catch the attention of just about anyone.

Match your accessories:

Who doesn’t love a color coordinated outfit? Accessories are everything when it comes to style. If you can pair an outfit with some matching sunglasses, an exquisite bracelet, a skinny belt, or a one-of-a-kind Etsy accessory – do it. This will make your outfit stand out, even if it’s just a small trip to the store.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re also living in a day and age of face mask fashion! You can’t go wrong with a little bit of glam or an accessory made from recycled materials (if you’re a green fashion-forward individual). The possibilities are endless when it comes to all of the accessories at your disposal!

Fun socks:

Have you ever been delighted to see a pair of funky and fun socks poking out from your friend or colleagues’ shoes? A pair of cute, checkered socks or maybe some dancing penguins is enough to brighten your day!

A pair of fun socks is a quirky way to make an outfit stand out in the crowd, especially if your pants are tailored just enough to show a balanced amount of fabric. It’s your choice to show off exactly what you want; a tuck, fold, or stretch can go a long way with something as simple as socks.

Statement pieces:

You might have some outrageous pieces of clothes floating around your closet that have made you wonder if you’ll ever take it off the hanger. Perhaps you’ve wondered if you’re bold enough to pull off this particular piece of clothing or you’ve been waiting for the right time to bust it out. If you have found yourself in this predicament, you have found yourself a statement piece!

A statement piece could be anything from a glamorous faux fur coat to a pair of red cowboy boots and they are important pieces to have in your closet. Your statement pieces might take up some room on your clothes rack, but they can be the perfect way to elevate an outfit. A funky sweater or a unique patterned jacket can add personality and flare to your look. A statement piece is your way to be playful, tastefully bold, or sexy. The choice is yours!

Wear what makes you comfortable, happy. and confident, and don’t let anyone tell you anything differently. Your fashion belongs to you alone. ❤

Renewing Your Style This Spring

Standard
Renewing Your Style This Spring

Whether it’s through new makeup or an overhaul of your wardrobe, everyone needs to renew and revitalize their style from time to time. If you think the time is right for you to make some changes and shake up how you style yourself, we’ve got some tips and ideas that might help you achieve the outcomes you’re looking for. Of course, your style should be unique to you, but here are some of the options you might want to consider:

Find Suitable Sources of Inspiration:

If you think the time is right to make a change, the first step is to find some sources of inspiration for your new look and where you want to take your style. Browse some blogs and look to influencers or celebrities who rock the kind of style you’re interested in. There’s a plethora of images out there for you to scour and take inspiration from, so this shouldn’t be a problem.

Try a Minimal Color Palette:

When one of your aims is to revamp your wardrobe, you can achieve this by doing something different with the color palette. You should try to keep it simple and reduced to begin with because this will limit you and provide your approach to fashion and the process of developing a new style to become a little more focused. So try it out for yourself.

Find a New Go-To Lipstick:

One of the most important items you’ll own as a woman with regards to style and fashion is that one lipstick that you can always call upon when you need to add something new to your look. You should shop matte lipstick and find a new one that fits with the new style that you’re looking to create for yourself. It could be just what you need right now.

Aim for Quality Over Quantity:

When it comes to improving your approach to style, you should always aim for the ethos of quality over quantity. Anyone who’s hoarded fashion items and ended up with an incredibly bloated wardrobe knows that having lots of clothes doesn’t make dressing yourself each day any easier. It makes it more difficult and you become overwhelmed by lots of underwhelming options.

Invest in Some New Shoes:

One of the most important things to buy for yourself when you’re looking to renew your style is a pair of shoes that can be used in all kinds of different scenarios. They should be flexible and versatile and make you feel at ease and confident when you’re wearing them. It’s always a good place to start. *Just make sure you can walk in them easily! 😀

Every now and then, you need to take a step back and see if the time is right to do something new with your style. A fresh look can transform your entire being and put a new spring in your step. There are lots of ways of making this happen, and the ideas above should help you get started.

The Fashion Statement That’s Out Of The Ordinary

Standard
The Fashion Statement That’s Out Of The Ordinary

Fashion is on every lip and in every shop. Consequently, as a fashionista, you know the two magic words that can get you noticed and send plenty of positive trendy waves your way: Fashion Statement. The only problem with fashion statements, is that it needs to be an extension of yourself through the means of fashion without becoming abusive, shocking, or political. In other words, you can’t exactly be wearing a print out of your favorite congressman and call it a fashion statement; it would be a political opinion, and it can expose you to unnecessary painful repercussions once in the street.

Additionally, the statement is about making your outfit work, which means you need to think in terms of accessorizing or finding the right item to wear, instead of openly sharing your opinion about a specific matter with others. In fact, when you think about it, a fashion statement that doesn’t look like anything else is far from being a piece of cake!

The problem with fashion statements:

Do you know where most people go to find the perfect fashion statement? They turn to magazines, fashion bloggers, and, naturally, high street shops. As a result, everyone’s favorite fashion statement pieces are the same. How can you make a real statement if you look like everyone else? Additionally, one could also ask how a mass-produced piece can be the best personality piece for your wardrobe. In short, belts, earrings, clutch bags, hats, and shoes, while they are often the ideal accessories for your outfit, may not work as a unique, stylish item when everyone buys from the same shop. You need to be a little more creative, and that’s a good thing. Making your fashion statement meaningful by making it more personal is hardly a challenge for a fashionista with a sharp sense of style.

Make it vintage and personal:

If you have a love for old clothes, you can transform an outfit by pairing it with a true vintage item. If you know a few good addresses for vintage fashion, you can make sure to add a nice handbag from the 1950s or even some of the 1970s platform Cuban shoes that everyone wants. However, if you’re worried about wearing something that might require more care than modern fashion pieces, you can make your own vintage tee with SE Apparel. You can wear a fake 1970s vintage top with a picture of your parents’ wedding on it, for instance, or with a logo from the time – as logos are back in trend.

DIY:

If you’re particularly crafty, or if you know someone who is, you can definitely transform your style by wearing a hand-knitted scarf or a cute crochet beanie. The most adventurous can even sew their own clothes. There are plenty of simple patterns for beginners that can take you through the art of making your skirt or your dress in a few hours’ time. Nothing says personal statement as much as handmade clothes!

Creating your own clothes is the ultimate DIY!

Fashion statements don’t work if they just make you look like anybody else. You have to be creative to showcase your style with original items – and, most importantly, have some fun!

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

Standard
Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

When it comes to beauty, nothing is permanent and it’s important to remember that. Girls grow up and want to emulate their favorite pop stars, TV princesses, and movie queens and, as such, we copy every out-there look. Whether it’s a spray tan as dark as hardwood or a nose ring to copy the latest DJ, experimentation is part of growing up as a young person. That need to find out who you are comes with a territory and sometimes that territory means donning blue hair with green streaks. Don’t laugh, though, the mermaid look is very much in, and you only have to look here to see it!

Sometimes, even after that experimental teen phase passes, a change is needed. There are so many ways that you can make a change to your look; clothes and makeup being just two of them. Some of the changes can come with regret, but as we’ve already said, nothing is permanent. Piercings can be removed and the holes close up. Wardrobes can be reshuffled. Hair can be dyed back to a more ordinary color. Even tattoos inked into the skin can be sorted with several visits to a tattoo removal service. Beauty isn’t always cheap, and reversing that beauty isn’t, either. However, it is available to you and you don’t have to stay looking one way or another just because of a little ink or hair dye!

When it comes to changing part of your look, it comes with a shift in your life. So many self-help books tell you not to go for a big, dramatic change when stressful situations arise, but change is the way that so many people cleanse. Strip it all back and start again with a clean palette, that sort of thing. There are so many ways that you can change your appearance and reflect a different part of your personality. For example, someone who loves the meaning of tattoos and certain designs are more likely to cover themselves in tributes to areas of their lives that they never want to forget. Of course, these can be removed down the line, but that’s why it’s said never to get a tattoo unless you are 100% sure!

changee2Pretty!!

Those who enjoy the look of piercings are different to those who like to streak their hair with frosted blonde. The change that is made with a piercing can be reversed but more often than not, is preferably permanent. You can experiment with clip on piercings before going for the real thing, so you can see what it looks like. Ears are the usual place to pierce but those who want to be more out there and different go for noses, septum, lip, and even cheeks! Making a change in your appearance is never a bad thing, but you need to be sure that you want to make a change before you go for it. Understand your reasons behind the change and make sure that you feel comfortable with it.

Change is good for the soul and sometimes after tragedy or excitement strikes, a new update to your appearance is just what the doctor ordered!

Clichés Can’t Be Wrong: What Pet Should You Get?

Standard

When it comes to choosing a pet, not everyone has a clear idea of which companion to choose. Indeed, there is a big difference between a cat and a dog, but there is an even bigger difference between owning a parrot or owning a pug, so the choice of your pet companion is a serious one. Choosing the wrong pet for your personality might not only result in unhappy social issues on your end, but you are also risking the happiness of an innocent animal. So, while there isn’t an exact guide on the best pet for your lifestyle, there are some common personality traits among pet owners that can help you to find out whether you are more of a fish fan or a cat lady.

You Love A Small And Lively Home – Rabbit: Around a third of all rabbit owners tend to describe themselves as creative and geek chic homeowners. But what unites all rabbit owners is the desire of a lively home at very little cost. They want to have the excitement of a pet peacefully hopping under the sofa without having to develop an authority figure to control their furry friend. The other advantage is the low investment of rabbit food as this is mostly odorless and easy to manage. So if you fancy a ball of fluff without concession or the problems of a dependent pet that relies on you for playful times, a rabbit is what you need!

SO. CUTE.

You Fear Long-Term Commitments – Hamster: For those who want a pet but don’t want to invest too many years of their lives with an animal, you should be looking at small animals such as mice, hamsters, rats, and other rodents. Their life expectancy rarely goes beyond two years, which is very short in the realm of pets, but they have all the fun of a bigger animal. They are very intelligent, too, so be prepared for them to escape from their cages! At this subject, you should have a look at the cage reviews at Love Your Pet to find the ideal cage for your rodent. Rodents are very playful and affectionate once they get to know you: Most people even let them roam free at home!

Wittle baby!!

You Are A Solitary Type – Cat: While cats are by definition the animals of the old single lady, in truth, they are a little more than an option against loneliness. Cats are independent animals who can develop very strong bonds with their owners. It’s not uncommon for cats to lick their owner’s hair as a way to show affection. They have some gross habits, too, as they bring back dead animals as a gift. But if you stick with cats, they are loyal, loving, and fun but they tend to dislike meeting new people. A cat is the ideal companion if you don’t like going out or if you are involved in a small social circle.

You Love Going Out And Exercising Outdoors – Dog: If you are keen to go out and make new friends, you have more of a dog personality. Most dogs love the company of people and while they are loyal and protective of their family – or of the family of their owners – they are always happy to meet new people and make new friends. Most dogs enjoy running and playing outside, so it’s best to have at least a medium sized back yard if you are planning to get a dog. You can also choose to exercise with your dog to keep both of you healthy. Dogs will require training to be obedient and behave safely outside of the house, but this is something that you can easily achieve with the right puppy school.

You Are A Creative Soul – Parrot: Parrots are incredibly bright and playful. It’s not uncommon for parrots to play with other animal species and many parrot owners have seen their friends throwing a ball at a dog just like a human being would do – admittedly with a little less strength than a person, it’s a bird after all. Parrots are happier in a household where they can interact with everyone and everything and where they can learn. Parrot owners tend to be on the creative side. Writers, designers, artists, and much more. It is said that parrots and their owners keep learning from each other throughout their lives.

You Prefer Peaceful Aesthetics – Fish/Reptile: If you are not keen on the company, but you want something nice to look at, you should be looking at a fish or reptile as a pet. Aquarium pets tend to keep a peaceful atmosphere in the house, as they stay in their glassed box until you take them out. You can decorate their tanks as you wish and the water is sure to have a calming effect.
