Blogtober 14, Day 21! My dream vacation...

Oh yes yes yes. Let's talk dream vacation. For me, I'm a simple gal with a want for a breeze, some crystal clear water, a little sunshine, and breathtaking views for good measure. In all honesty, staying stateside will work just fine. I'm thinking Hawaii would be justtttt perfect.

To start this will be a 10 day vacation. Every morning, I would post up on a gorgeous deck and meditate. Chamomile tea will be fabulous, thank you.

As the day moves on, I shall move to my daily massage location, which no doubt will overlook said amazing views previously mentioned. Then to the spa for facials, steam room, maybe some yoga, because one can't be on such a vacay without the proper medley of spa love.

After that, I'll have lunch outdoors, also while taking in my scenery. Lunch shall feature the freshest catch the chefs can come up with, full of wow and flavor, and obvi mimosas and margs will be flowing.

As the afternoon rolls in, I would check out some local haunts and learn about the island. Then as night would fall, we would take in whichever live show is happening. Then, we would finish up the day with another spa treatment to induce peaceful slumber. Lastly, repeat for 9 days.

To surmise, my dream vacation would include relaxation, beautiful scenery, good food, and lots of pampering. Simple and exquisite, my favorite combination.

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:
