3 Things I know

I found myself wondering about what I really know about life at this time of mine. Like, what would I bestow upon a young grasshopper looking for guidance? Totally random thoughts started pouring out of my brain. Some useful, some, not so much.

I can ultimately advise the following insight of 3 things I know about life right now:

1. Floss! It is so important and the true secret behind every thing else dental. I know it can be a pain, un-enjoyable, and maybe gross. Butttt, it is still necessary. Think about it; many other "adult" things are super annoying to stick it out and do and this is no different. This is even more crucial because it's directly related to your personal and physical well-being.

2. College. Should you, shouldn't you? My logic, is to go with it. However, not necessarily right out of high school. Who in the actual hell knows what subject matter they wish to become an expert for at 17 or 18 years old? Exhibit A: I graduated high school convinced I would pursue a major in horticulture and a minor in business, to ultimately open up my own flower shop. Um, hello, allergy ridden your whole life. Really? You're gonna make plants grow? Pretty plants? Sure...I digress.

College is definitely a good more than an evil. Yes, even the student debt part of the scenario. I say take it with stride and with intention. Pay it back while in school along the way if you can. More often than not, I would encourage someone to pursue higher education because it does separate the pack and it does promote confidence in a person. Also, in college, you will meet so many people. Human interaction will never occur the same way again. Just trust me, you'll meet some characters. All kinds of them.

3. Clean eating. This is something that always has me learning and growing for well-being. I'll keep this simple and let an expression I heard before explain it best:

My only gripe with this, is the fact the girl in the pic is eating what appears to be a cupcake. This insinuates a cupcake is not good to enjoy. Let's be clear: moderation is key, friends. It can be a difficult task at times, but maintain your diligence. The rest of this expression is dead on though.


That's it for today's random thought session. Come back again to see if I think I know the key to solving the Black Dahlia once and for all.

Til we meet again,
M

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:
