Blogtober Day 22, My pet peeves...

Things that cause me to make faces such as this, aka pet peeves:



-the use of the "R" word in a casual reference, to identify something as "stupid", or just overall. This is probably my biggest pet peeve in life because that word carries a lot of weight and hate. There are a million better choices to use in every example. I assure you.

-toilet paper rolls left as the empty cardboard

-when my beautiful angel cake baby girl dogters, the little one in particular, jump up on the couch with snacks after I just vacuumed it

-loud assholes in a room who don't let others contribute an opinion

-when something goes awry with the DVR. I 100% KNOW I set it to record. #firstworldproblems

-finding an ideal dress, shirt, or skirt in a store and there's a tear, a stain, or something you just wouldn't be able to fix. And it's on sale!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

-cruelness to the elderly and animals. This is an area of no restraint for me, I will lose it if I witness such atrocities.

-bullying in any sort of way. WHY is this still a thing??? Seriously, be kind to each other. Just.that.easy.


So there we have my ranting of pet peeves. I like to keep it pretty positive in life overall but hey, we're all human and we all have things that bug us. What grinds your gears?

Until we meet again,

  1. I hate animal cruelty. Some people think that crimes against fellow humans are more important...but if you can't even take care of an animal and treat them with kindness, I don't think you should be trusted with human children.

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…

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:
