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,
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…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.
