Blogotber Day 30- The Facts of Megan

I can't believe Blogtober 2014 is a day from being over. This is like a race that is so close to being done, and you can see the finish line, and you feel this surge of exhilaration and an "I made it!" attitude, while also feeling slightly saddened because it's done. At least, this is what I imagine people who run races feel like.

Anyhow, today we are talking about some facts about me:

-My middle name is Keely and I always get asked if its misspelled on documents and should be Kelly. As if I would misspell my own name on 14 documents back to back...

-I would not live in a cold climate. Snow, below zero, no thank you.

-I have not yet felt California sunshine or Colorado snow.

-But I have had gumbo in New Orleans and a cannoli in little Italy.

-My favorite movie of all time is Dirty Dancing.

-Glitter is my favorite color.

-I don't have a single bottle of perfume in my collection of beauty products.

-I live for picking out my new daily planner every 12-18 months. Like, a lot. I keep a countdown in the current one I use for when I get to pick a new one. I love making lists and outlining plans.

-Twitter is my favorite social media, with Instagram a close second.

-If I could only shop at one store the rest of my life it would be Macy's. Funny thing about this is I hardly go there now, yet I know they would be my choice if told I could only have one place. They have everything!

-I am more controlling than I ever realized. This is what I like to call an area of opportunity.

-Halloween is my favorite holiday out of any other one and I'm excited to come back tomorrow to share my Halloween costume!

Just some simple facts of me. Nice to meet you if you're newly reading, good to see you if you're visiting again.

Until 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:
