An ideal day

Image Via
The other day was a nice embodiment of a successful day full of productivity and grace and for preservation of tips and tricks to ensure more of them, I thought I'd blog about it.  Specifically, what goes into my ideal schedule:

Early to rise: I love waking up before my alarm.  I've read before this can be a sign of being well rested and I can attest this is usually how I feel when it happens.  At 6:45am, I am stirring to get up and on to my day.

Sip and smooth: hot lemon water for the win.  This is not groundbreaking insight because this is a common beverage of choice for many for varying reasons.  I love it early morning, it just makes my whole body wake up and induces a calmness that clears my mind to take on the tasks before me.  I try to meditate at this point as well, nothing too crazed or in depth, mostly simple thoughts and intentions I set forth while taking time to breathe.

Start 'er up: I get my work station and computer going and my to do lists in front of me and I align on what will be completed first, later, tomorrow and so forth.  I'm a big fan of crossing off items on lists and completing and updating them actively.  It really is the little things.  I love spending hours organizing, creating and working to bring client visions to life.

House of mmmm: I absolutely love being able to cook fresh meals often due to working for myself from home.  I take pride in creating healthy and flavorful meals and it's such a good feeling to be able to do so.

Work it out: In Florida, especially during summertime, rainstorms in the afternoon are quite common.  I loveeeeee hitting the pavement for a good sweat sesh after this glorious occurrence.  The smells, feel in the air, and yes, the coolness it helps drop over our sunshiny existence.  The timing lines up where it's around the end of my standard workday and it's pretty glorious to step away and enjoy good old exercise.  

Tuckered: when work and play are done, a strong hot shower and bed are where it's at.  We like to watch news programs in the evening #bcwereover30 now and honestly I like staying informed.  We enjoy Tucker and Hannity the most and I also factor in some Blue Bloods and Criminal Minds because I like my world problems in the form of resolution within a 53 minute window.

Things also worth mentioning regarding an ideal day for me:

I am highly optimistic and full of gratefulness for every day I wake up and my friends and family and loved ones wake up happy and healthy.  I appreciate all aspects of what a day may lend including client meetups, running errands, grabbing lunch with a friend, I even love grocery shopping.  Actually, I really love grocery shopping.  This post just outlines what I consider an exceptionally awesome day.

What's your ideal day?


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:
