I'm kind of older than I was when I revolved without a care -Lorde



Oh these goodies. These two pics really wrap up so much of my teenage/early adult years. I liked to have a good time and I liked costume parties. A lot. We all did. I don't want to brag, but my friends and I knew how to have a good time.

What's funny, is that back then, we were wild, free, and daring. We lived for the next socializing event and planning of the night's outfits. In many cases, we acted first, thought after. We were the perfect blend of fun and out of control. We always looked out for each other and made sure we left with the people we came with. Rule Cluster #1 of being a champion friend: never leave a sister whether during confrontation, when coordinating accessories, or pumping a keg.

Having met the two girls in the pictures above at ages 12 and 14 respectively, a sisterhood formed between us. As we've grown up, it's only expanded. We still live for fun socializing events just the same, but now they tend to revolve around babies, brunches, and talking about how we don't drink tequila straight anymore. Usually. I am still very much the same person as I was, when I revolved without a care. So are they, which is what makes my heart so full.

Til we meet again,

PS: I painted, glittered, and stickered that picture frame and gifted it to Andrea. I like to think of it as one of my finer creative experiments. And it melts my heart she visited her mom's house recently to find it as we left it.

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:



Until …
