A Little Wordy Recap for September

So September has come and gone and that is wonderful/sad. I love September because it is so transitional and has a fresh appeal. Such a good, love filled month so without further ado, away we go...........

I so got to cover Mall at Millenia Fashion Week and Watch here! It was challenging to capture shots in a packed crowd of people and exhilarating at the same time. If I could do this all day, err day, you betcha I would!

A mid month bach party with a theme of black ensembles and pink accessories caused me to commit myself to a group since I may just have a problem. Again, these are just some of my jeweled goodies that have some sort of pink in them. Shameful? Eh, maybe.

Then to coincide, while disassembling my outfit from the day one night, I looked down to actually catch myself saying "too much"? Obvi it was lack of sleep and I realized I is who I is:

I reached another yearly milestone of age and celebrated many times at many places with many folks. To feel so blessed? The thoughts, well wishes, love, and absolutely fabulous people I spent time with keep me in awe of my good fortunes:

Our youngest nephew Connor, aka Nonner as he calls himself (I die), hosted a birthday brunch at the Oviedo Townhouse and we chowed on some delish morsels of southern goodness to kick off the day before the actual day

Uh-oh, gifted new accessories? I definitely have a problem/blessing...

Beautiful cards that are absolutely so fabulous! These pups have been recrafted into decor for my work space, thankyouverymuch.

Speaking of my desk, some of dearest work lovies dolled my desk right on up. Be still my heart...

My love Hunty makes my heart sing each day but boy does he put up a good birthday!

I feel empowered to take on the next 7 years of age. I say 7 because I always heard of 7 year increments for hair and skin trends, well the same goes for state of mind. People always ask you if you feel different or older, it's almost cliche, but this year ironically no one has asked me and I'd actually be ready to offer a response that says yes, I do feel different.

I know much more about lots of things: saving vs spending; taking care of your body and mind equally; when to listen to your instinct and when to throw caution to the wind; learn to take time for self but know when you hustle too; know when to give your all and don't stop til it's great-it's ok to push limits on all fronts; it's okay to be afraid, it's not okay to not face fear; dragons exist and while fairy tales are highly fictitious, there can be so much good that comes from the overall theme; and lastly, if nothing else, optimism gets the job done.

So there we have it. If you made it this far, you deserve a cookie and possibly a beer. Either one, happy living til we meet again!

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…

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:

Irrational Rationing...

The past year of my life has been spent blogging; two of my four classes necessary for graduation required them and at my internship I blogged. Why not give the world my opinion on any subject I choose? It's free and it's mine to share, right? Absolutely!

So, to start, what do I want my tone to be? Tone is a very important factor, you know. It can make or break a piece. People want to identify a tone or purpose, which they often misconstrue as meaning the same thing. Oh, people-my favorite breed:)

So let's see. There's:
Informative? Will I provide people with knowledge about various subjects and try to teach? Eh.

How about super upbeat and positive? Like, I'll provide people with a reason to live to log on to read the next uplifting piece of blog. Eh.

How about super dreary? Dreary works. Most people would rather be perfectly miserable than divinely happy. Eh. Decisions.

Hmm, maybe all my posts will be so contemplative. Hey! That's not a bad racket. Contemplative in…
