Calling all Friday favorites!

Favorite News Story: Y'all. If this story about window washers at a children's hospital, dressing up as superheroes to surprise the kids, does not melt your heart, we need to check for it's existence. So many good feels came over me scrolling through it.

Favorite Recipe Idea: Two ideas were featured by the lovely gals at LaurenConrad.com and what they came up with sounds incredibly appealing. Ready for this?...Veggie Cupcakes and Vanilla Protein Popcorn...So cool, I know! Now, I'll be real honest here, and say veggies and cupcakes do not usually go together. However, my infatuation thrives for this juxtaposition.

Favorite Sale: One of my top 3 spots to shop is Francesca's. And I can gladly say they are securely holding their spot due to the amazing sales they like to throw my way. On Tuesday, I was just minding my own business, scrolling Twitter when alas, a tweet advising that day only, there would be dresses on a good sale. So naturally, after perusing, I may or may not have made a couple purchases. And by may or not, I mean yes. A couple of the looks I am so excited about can be found here and here. I did not not pay any where near the price listed. BAM!

Favorite TV Show
: Finding Carter. Do it. just watch it. MTV has been stepping up their actual shows with a plot game and I am absolutely loving it. Between Awkward and now this one, man I am set. Be still 16 year old heart.

Favorite Blog Post from another sistah
: I adore many blogs and bloggers so this was a tricky but fun favorite to sort out. I shall go with a tale about summer camp from The Daily Tay. While there were many amazing posts throughout Blogland this week, I thoroughly enjoyed this one because I too went to summer camp and instantly felt transported back after reading Taylor's recap. Funny stuff! Do yourself a favor and head on over.

That's it for the week, loves. Have an awesome weekend, do a little, do a lot, have fun and tip your waitresses.

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…

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 …
