"I just like to smile. Smiling's my favorite"-- Elf

One of my favorite celebs to follow for the last six or so years is the one, the only LC from Laguna Beach and The Hills. Always classy and innovative, the Orange County gal has maintained a down to earth, honest personality despite being thrust into the spotlight and becoming one of the most admired stars of her generation. Of all the role models for young girls and grown women to have Lauren Conrad flies high above the other contenders.

Recently launching two sites, one being Lauren's personal website completely redone and refabulized, http://www.laurenconrad.com/ and the second entitled http://thebeautydepartment.com/ which is co-authored with her hair and makeup stylists, you can expect both sites to be fun, informative, and just helpful on everything from hair to decor to inspiration. The stylists, Kristin Ess and Amy Nadine, provide nothing short of amazing advice in their given areas of expertise. On Lauren's specific site she has been doing a list of favorite things weekly, typically on Fridays. What an awesome way to reflect on happy thoughts and to be sure you're taking time out of busy schedules to think of the things providing sanity amidst the chaos.

I don't mind this idea one bit. It's absolutely fantaz! Without further ado, onward with my weekly favo's:

*Fave snack: grapefruit
*Fave quote: What other people think of you is none of your business
*Fave old habit back with a vengeance: Coffee!!
*Fave accessory: Multi gem cocktail ring, fave fave favorite!
*Fave website: http://thebeautydepartment.com/ ; http://www.laurenconrad.com/
*Fave literature: People Style Watch June 2011
*Fave fashion trend to try: Peach lipstick
*Fave moment: Accompanying my sis-in-law( :) ) to her doc appt where we found out another little gent will be joining our lives (EEEKKK!!! Yay for matching sweater vest pictures at every holiday of both handsome little devils)

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:
