I am super big on self care and through practice I have discovered self care comes in more ways than just caring for your physical. One of the ways that I practice self care is buying myself weekly (or bi weekly depending on the money flow 😉 ) flowers. Continue reading
Today arguably the song that some people saved Vol. 3 turns 17. I distinctly remember when this song came out. I was a sophomore in highschool and very deep into my relationship with rap. Continue reading
Well……Monday is def doing is typical thing and acting like a Monday. So here’s some things to make the day better and change the tone for the week if you need it like I do!
- Light Candles and Meditate. Meditation has become a staple in my life in keeping me focused and managing stress. I like to meditate before I go to bed to help set the tone for my sleep and the following day. However if you are having a day like mine you may want to go out to your car (if you’re at work) and take 5. I really like THIS 5 min guided meditation that helps align your chakras. I literally vibrate after I’m done and feel ready to face the rest of the day. If I am at home, I really enjoy lighting candles generally but I also like to light them while I am meditating. I am really into these candles from Angelic Rose Essentials. Not only are they beautiful to look at they smell amazing even after blowing them out. The Postiano and ocean drive scents are sure to help with dealing with the “Mondays”.
Over the past year and a half I have been working on taking my health more seriously and getting my body in the best shape that it can be. During that time I’ve lost about 20lbs and a zillion inches. I try not to track that data too much because it can be stressful and discouraging. I don’t own a scale and only get weighed when I go get my B-12 shots (I’ll save that for another post.) Anyway with spring sliding through last week I thought this was a great time to give my body a restart and do a 3 day juice cleanse.
For the last couple of years the Fall season has turned into adventure time for me. Last year in August I made a resolution to go on a trip once a month until the end of the year to spend time with friends and family. I ended up accomplishing that goal and it was so rewarding to see that through. This year I wanted to take a short trip alone to a city I have never been to and just explore it. Thanks to being on Virgin Americas email list I cheap trip to Portland, OR fell into my lap. I have always wanted to go and had a couple friends from there but really knew nothing about this beautiful city. I heard and read a lot about Portland, especially as a life long foodie, this was one place that was mandatory to eat my way through and that’s exactly what I did. Continue reading
