Fridayyy Favoritesss

Friday, you beautiful ol'gal you! This day just gifts pep for our steps, amiright? One thing to accompany a Friday, at least in my world, is reflection of the week. I love to sit back and think about some highlights and excitement that occurred. It's positive energy being recycled and you know what they say about recycling; it saves the earth. I'm ultimately doing my part to save the universe. Let's get this party started, hmmm?

Favorite chef moment: I made a Greek pasta salad with plenty of love, olives, and feta and a cornbread cake, which totally called for sour cream and out of habit, I grabbed cream cheese. Fortunately, it was quite the serendipitous turnout and got rave reviews from my coworkers at our summer office party :)


Favorite accessory:

Like walking on air y'all. They were a steal of a deal and gift from my bubsy, and man they are on point.

Favorite #throwback pic: my Mama, Nana, and uncle D



Favorite follow up story: Raju has a gf! And no more chains on his beautiful, bodacious legs. PS: To the monsters who let him live for 50 years on this earth like that---There is a very special table reserved for you in hell.

Favorite inspiration: Two words: John Legend. The man is a genius and serious crusader for the female gender. Have a single doubt? Hear his beautiful song and see the wonderful video made to accompany it: http://vevo.ly/Q2VvFB

Andddddd I'm dropping the mic. Hopefully your Friday brings all the goodness you could wish for. Have a fabulous weekend!

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:
