Happy New Year's Eve eve!

With another year pretty much behind us, and the renewal of my domain name for this here space on the interwbez, I am feeling all kinds of reflective. For starters, I am incredibly baffled how yet another year has come and gone so quickly. Yes, it's the same amount of time as all previous years, minus leap years, but 2014 feels like a blur.

I definitely grew this year in terms of being realistic. I am a dreamer, and I long for dreams to come true. What I usually struggle with though, is the time leading up to making a dream come true. I am impatient and hasty at times, while contemplative and indecisive too. I hope to re-purpose these qualities into more productive versions of themselves during the next year.

I am quite excited for 2015. I've spent time reflecting and evaluating what worked and what didn't this past year, to prepare for the new. And I believe if you can identify your own key components, you are destined for goodness. Now among so many things that made 2014 awesome, allow me to share...

A few of my Favorite 2014 Moments::
-Graduating as Salutatorian with my MA in New Media Journalism
-Blogtober 2014
-Celebrating 7 years together with the love of my life
-Hosting our first real live Thanksgiving dinner at our home
-And anytime I laughed and/or smiled so big:








MARY MOTHER! That is not even half the fun times of this year. What a reminder to feel so incredibly thankful for living life!

And now may I present...

-My not so much resolutions, but rather Top 2015 Intentions List
:
-Be in the moment more-not always thinking of my next move
-Be off my phone at least 2 hours before bed
-Grow steadily with Yoga/Meditation practices
-Build our business with two of my very good friends
-Earn my social media certification
-Write a book over the span of 2015
-Travel more
-Cherish my lovey ones extra good


It's been great y'all. Talk to you next year!

Until we meet again,
M

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:
