Meet the Blogger

It's been a looooonnng time since I've done an About Me feature.  It's always fun to learn who the individual behind the blog is, at least that's what I think:

-I'm Megan, 31 years old, living in Orlando.


-I spend my days with the love of my life Hunter and our two beautiful dogters Pepper & Roni.  Pep is a 13-1/2 year old lab-shepherd mix and Ro is an almost 9 year old teacup Pomeranian.  And yes, the little one runs all of the house.

 

-Hunter and I will celebrate 10 years together this August and while engaged for five years, we are not legally married.  People are very intrigued by this.

-My favorite color is glitter, my favorite cupcake is vanilla with buttercream frosting, and I believe strongly in accessorizing.   

-Hunter and I own our own business known as Social Cap.  We are a new media agency offering a range of multimedia services and it's just shy of being 2 years old.  Hands down, leaving an office job and going out on this venture has been a decision I haven't regretted once.  I absolutely love my profession and give thanks every day for every step and endeavor that's brought me to the threshold of entrepreneurship.


-I'm so excited for my 30s.  I feel like I've waited for this decade.  There is something liberating and joyful about it so far and I'm happily anxious for what to make of this time.

-I drink so much water and I'm damn proud of it.  I'm constantly droning on and on and on about water consumption.  My favorite is room temperature plain or chilled cucumber water.  I'm also a big fan of green tea, hot or iced.

-I got into cleaner eating the year I turned 29.  I've always heard about your 30s being death to metabolism so I figured I should get my shit together.

-I still get down with nacho Doritos, use real butter, and consider myself a bit of a donut connoisseur.  All about that balance.

-I'd love to get into house flipping.

-Not sure I want my own children.  I've felt this way since I was young.  I make a fabulous aunt if I do say so myself though.

-If I had to describe my style in 3 words I'd say quirky, colorful, and accessorized.




I think that's a good bit of a reminder post of who's running the show around here.  Thanks for tuning in!

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:



Until …
