Photo Challenge Day One: A Few of My Favorite Things

Some of you may remember the awesome blogging challenge I participated in for October, known as Blogtober. In short, the challenge was to write every single day of October, even on weekends. There were awesome prompts, like this one and this one, oh and this one too.

I loved this challenge the minute Helene and Taylor unveiled it. I met the goal of writing all 31 day too. On one hand, it was not an easy feat. On the other though, it was a breeze because I love blogging and writing and being pushed to get creative with a prompt. It was such a fun time and I was honestly sad to see it end.

So here we are starting April (which is crazy talk to me) and the fabulous Helene has invited all her virtual friends to jump aboard an Instagram photo challenge known as #30photosinbetween.

Basically, there are prompts again, but just like the writing challenge you can choose to adhere or pick a different pic to put up. For me, I've decided to accept this opportunity for both Insta and for blog. I need a push to get back to this space daily and Blogtober really made me happy so here we go!

A few of my favorite things...


Homemade breakfast quiche with veggies and mozzarella; a hot cup o'joe with vanilla; my beloved planner that I begin each day with; springtime colored nails; and any view of my engagement ring.

So there we have it. Super excited to see this through and take pics, write, and overall love on this creative space that serves as a virtual memory box to look back on. Thank you again to Helene for always motivating her fellow bloggers with her innovation.


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:

Irrational Rationing...

The past year of my life has been spent blogging; two of my four classes necessary for graduation required them and at my internship I blogged. Why not give the world my opinion on any subject I choose? It's free and it's mine to share, right? Absolutely!

So, to start, what do I want my tone to be? Tone is a very important factor, you know. It can make or break a piece. People want to identify a tone or purpose, which they often misconstrue as meaning the same thing. Oh, people-my favorite breed:)

So let's see. There's:
Informative? Will I provide people with knowledge about various subjects and try to teach? Eh.

How about super upbeat and positive? Like, I'll provide people with a reason to live to log on to read the next uplifting piece of blog. Eh.

How about super dreary? Dreary works. Most people would rather be perfectly miserable than divinely happy. Eh. Decisions.

Hmm, maybe all my posts will be so contemplative. Hey! That's not a bad racket. Contemplative in…
