I am pumped for Blogtober 2014

I'm very excited for Blogtober 2014 hosted by Taylor from The Daily Tay, and Helene from Helene in Between. So much so, that recently when my computer had a glitch, I got very stern with the nice man named Adam from Apple Care. "Adam, this needs to be fixed ASAP. I have Blogtober right around the corner."

I think this is a brilliant venture all around. I particularly enjoy the notion of writing for 31 days consecutively, and the idea of being prompted through a daily topic, the most. I've always been a fan of being given a prompt or parameters for a piece. It sparks the utmost of fire from me.

My goal is to write for all 31 days. I can say the obvious, that it will be a challenge, but what good is a passion if it doesn't challenge you?

The topics right off the initial read through of the list, that really grab my excitement, would be:
Day 4. Favorite Photo You've Posted on Instagram
Day 12. Best advice you've been given
Day 14. Funniest memory from childhood(This is already so hard to narrow down, just at first thought. Thank God for my childhood.)
Day 15. Favorite quote and why
Day 20. Your biggest fear
Day 26. Who'd play you in a movie
(This one is the most daunting to me at this moment. I have zero clue. Fun to ponder already.)

I'm extra excited to read other bloggers responses too. This is just one mere example of the blogging community, truly being a community. It's like our very own virtual block party. Ohhh, like the crawfish boil type! I'll bring the bibs!

So fun!!

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:
