Egg-traordinary Breaths

While enjoying a portion of my day at the pool taking in this beautiful, Floridian Easter weather, I spent my time doing one of my most favorite, soul enriching hobbies: dissecting this month's Glamour magazine. Heaven, I'm in Heaven.....

There's a page where stars give advice, either their own words to live by or the words from others to them. The four snippets offered are pleasantly refreshing and uplifting to read. One particular star, you may of heard of her, Alicia Keys :), shared her grandmother's words: "Nothing before its time." So perfect. It feels like everyone rushes and pushes their way through life and while determination is never frowned upon, sometimes it morphs with being consumed.

Myself, like Alicia, have suffered from impatience since the day I was born two weeks late. I was probably fuming at the great big ol' world when I finally made my appearance. Patience is by far one of my weaknesses. Perhaps being an only child for 13 years didn't help any and I find myself as an "adult" constantly remembering to slow it down and let the cookie crumble not only as it will but when it will too. These are just the words I needed to embrace this gorgeous day.

Thank you Alicia Keys' Grandmother, you are incredibly wise. And thank you Alicia for patiently waiting to share such insight.

Take the time to enjoy the day, it won't be a regret. Happy Easter to all and to all a huge golden egg with the right amount of glitter, sparkle and overall fabulousness.

Us a couple of years ago on Easter. Patience never tested? Hmph, what's that like? :)

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Change Has Arrived

New adventures lie ahead.  I've left my full time job in college admissions and am now full time into mine and Hunter's business.  I'm working on a few other ventures so when I know more I'll follow up on that.

I spent 6 years working at my last job and while I always knew I would go to my business full time eventually, it hasn't truly hit me that I'm not just taking some vacation time and spending a few days away.  I'm ready for my new normal though.

It's times like this I love having a lifestyle blog.  I'll look back on this post at some point and the thoughts had, the feelings felt will all come back.  This is a big milestone, leaving a corporate type job and going full speed as a small business owner.  Yay!!

I've got big plans for the next.  Excited for what's to come.



Let's meet again,

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:
