I glitterally can't


Some days you wake up with the best intentions and the highest spirit for what's to come in that very special 24 hour window of time.  And some days you must employ your feel good exercises a little extra.

I had a day like this very recently; try as I might I kept hitting wall after wall of frustration:

-an extensive work project was almost complete and then poof!  It drifted off into the land of make believe, a mere figment of imagination, only to be revisited in my dreams.  

-a burner on the stove decided to literally burn up the inner plate liner and created that terrible burnt smoky smell in the house for hours.  This happened seemingly out of no where, no liquid boiled over, no obvious spills, I was heating water in my teapot!

-my hair is peeling after recently having it colored.  This happens every so often when I color it, as I'm sensitive to the dye, and really there isn't much I can do besides a deep conditioning treatment.  Just have to ride it out, get it out, part my hair to the right a little extra and move on.

-made a grilled cheese, set on a paper towel, didn't see the delicious gourmet goodness melt onto said paper and in seconds time my lovely meal was finito.

These are all "issues" not worth losing sleep over, I know.  It's still okay to have moments of frustration and pout through them occasionally.  I personally hate feeling frustrated and try extra hard to beat it and get back to sunshine and optimism quickly.  I am better when living as a happier person than as someone who loses their shit because their grilled cheese becomes one with paper products.  It's all about perspective and when these snafus happen, a fast bout of meditation, a cup of hot lemon water, and decompressing in some order of creativity (hey blog hey) usually does just the trick.

Moving along and hope you are too, love bugs.

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…
