What I love about blogging

I have been blogging for approximately 4 years now. This has been for myself and for different media outlets, and I can surmise it as this: I love it. I love the freedom, the feel goods, and the various personalized spaces. I enjoy the freedom in relation to the various subjects one can talk about. I suppose it's for the same reasons people like shows like Good Morning America, The View, and Wake Up San Francisco with Danny Tanner. While bloggers talk about all kinds of things, some have niches of course, and that's why I enjoy going back to the virtual spaces/coffee talk sessions that I do.

All blogs whether about fashion, food, family and friends, and anything that falls between those areas, provide different vantage points to appreciate. The biggest common denominator between all the blogs I follow is the strong spirit of communication each author brings. People who blog share stories and interactions for all kinds of reasons. I am partial to each one I encounter and excitedly await for the next bout of chit chat. See? Just like waking up with Kathie Lee and Hoda!! But it lasts all day long as different posts go live. How's that for amazing??

Whether you are planning your next post to share a great recipe or fun vacation recap, sorting logistics of sponsorships, or generating innovative ideas to connect more people together, it's exciting to be thinking of the "what's next's" with blogging. I love being a blogger and using my space for all kinds of thoughts. I believe in the power of writing entirely, and blogging is such a cool platform to get things out. Also, it's basically a digital journal that one can look back on and always remember particular moments. Loves it!!

I look forward to keeping up with my passion for writing and blogging for as long as the ride goes. I'm also pumped to keep up with all my blog peoples. Blogging is an important endeavor in the world we live in. I don't believe it when I hear naysayers saying it's on its way out. Um, that's what they said about radio...And TV...To that I say, keep fighting for the good my friends.

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:
