Blogtober 2014-Day 1: If I won the lottery

October 1st, like a nice smack to the face. Is 2014 really almost over? How time flies when you're having fun an adult with a full time job, and a home to always vacuum/tidy/pledge, and dogs(hence the constant vacuuming) and a husband/boyfriend/boo/live-in-lover (whatever I call him this week) to look after.

Today, I am thrilled to kick off Blogtober 2014:

The Daily Tay

This opportunity is brought to the blogging world by two super cool cats known as Helene from Helene in Between and Taylor from The Daily Tay. The challenge is that you write for all 31 days of Halloween, er, October.

Sorry, in our house, we already massively decorated for my favoritest holiday in all the land. I love it so much so, that Roni is not speaking to us until November. Why you ask? Well....

Worst.Dog.Parents.Ever

Any how, back to the matter at hand: Blogtober. Day one and the prompt is....If you won the lottery you'd...

Well now. Truly a million dollar question. The irony here is that I NEVER buy lottery tickets, play the lottery, look at the machines at Publix, nada. I have bought scratch-offs ONE time in the 11 years I legally could. For the sake of imagination however, with my new found fortune, I would...

-Definitely be logical...Right after heading to Louboutin's for a new set of hooves. Woof.

-Pay off the student debt I just had to have. That's a given if I come in to any kind of fortune though.

-Invest in Apple stock. Oh and Publix. We're practically keeping the lights on at our neighborhood location already, so why not?

-Go on an extended, relaxing vacation with Hunter

-Take my mom to NYC and Italy

-Buy the dogs some things extra gourmet

-Send nice gifts to all of my family members and friends

-I would also buy a Starbucks location or two. I've always wanted to own a Starbucks.

Other than these few things, I would hoard the winnings. I'd definitely save or invest more than I didn't.

Now, excuse me, I need to google How to Play the Lottery for Dummies. This post has me feeling all kinds of lucky.

Until we meet again, (tomorrow for Blogtober 2014 Day 2, Yay!)

  3. Roni may not speak to you until November, but she is so incredibly adorable that it might just be worth the silent treatment!!! :)

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:
