Chaos in Crowds

It's crazy how much I don't like going into stores during certain times anymore.  And by certain times I mean mostly anytime between open and close.  I kid mildly, but really I've come to have a real distaste for running into a Target on a Saturday.  We have a good sized town center 4 miles from my house with most every basic need and then some for retail options.  I've always loved this lovely outdoor mall but in recent years, it takes a lot for me to go to it any ol'time of day.

My ideal time to frequent it is during the week on maybe a Monday, Tuesday, or a Wednesday between the hours of 8am and about 1pm.  Crowds are minimal, those that are there also seem to be on the same wavelength of appreciating less chaos, and inventory is at peak.  This.  This is when it exudes its holy land esque style for me.

Hunter has never been one much for store hopping, here and there of course, but he's quite content setting me loose to handle anything we want or need.  Silly or super awesome of the dear lad, you may be the judge.  We popped into our Target over the weekend, during one of their busiest hours, at the end of a hurricane week where people are still recovering in a variety of ways.  Dumb dumb dumb dumbbbbb.  

A merry and happy Monday to you, darling.

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:
