    Mask got you Chapped? DIY Lip Scrub

    As we move into cooler months you might notice your lips getting a little bit more chapped than usual. If you are anything like me, then you probably have gone through tons of chapstick, gloss and lip ointment since covid started. Before mask became mandatory pretty much everywhere outside of the house, I prided myself on taking really good care of my skin + lips. Having a good routine pretty much sets the foundation of how our skin ages. This is no different with the skin around the eyes, our hands and especially our lips. Let’s face it, skin care routines are like lifelines 🤷🏾‍♀️. Ok, so genetics + lifestyle…

    Time to Relax: 3 Tips

    Ok, this is not a drill people, I need all hands on deck!! Today was the first day of back to school virtual learning + it is off to a very bumpy start. So much so that I found myself tightly wound by 11am. From the tech issues, to the extreme micromanagement down to the city deciding today was the day to work on the street behind my house. There was alot that didnt go as planned. Honestly I dont know that any amount of planning could have prepared us for how things would/could go today. 2020 has given us alot of lessons. One of the biggest lessons is to…

    Leaving Low Carb Behind

    Well friends, this whole low carb lifestyle is not for me. I actually knew that it wasnt for me within the very first few days of starting. But because I know starting/trying new things can be somewhat difficult I thought that I should actually give myself a full 2 weeks before coming to the conclusion that this wasnt it. Dont get me wrong, there are some benefits I suppose to keeping a low carb diet. Heck I personally know several people that live + THRIVE, like thrive thrive on a low carb diet. Im just not one of those people. And in this season in my life I have no…

    Working from Home

    I was starting to feel the pressure my friend. I dont think any of us expected to still be in this space currently. Like many of you, I naturally assumed that things would get back to “normal” or at least something that resembled the “old” normal. I have a couple things coming up that was beginning to make me anxious. #DramaTeen is entering the 8th grade the same day that I begin Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training. All while my hubs is working full-time remote. When the kids were released from school in March, we had a little routine down. But honestly once summer hit, we loosened up on the schedules.…

    A Few Changes

    And just like that here we are Welcoming August! I know I cant be the only one feeling like this year is just speeding right on by. Regardless if it seems like August came out of no where or whether you feel like this is the longest year ever, this is it, here we are. If you happen to be a new reader, in July I participated in a blogging consistency challenge where essentially I posted a new blog post every weekday M-F. We completed the challenge last week + I needed a few days to wrap my head around what I actually learned. Can we have a truth moment?…

    4 Step Skincare Routine

    (This page contains Affiliate Link. For more information see my disclosures, here) Let’s talk skin! Since we have been home, I have been extremely heavy on my normal self care routine. Recently I started upping the anty a bit in the skincare department. Pre-quarantine, my skincare routine was pretty thorough yet basic in the same breath. I did weekly face masks, jade rolling, exfoliating, creams and serums. You name it, I probably have done it one way or another. The issue has never been taking the steps to take care of my skin. The real issue has always been staying consistent. Come on, I cant be the only one that…

    Taking the Leap: Betting on You

    Alright my friend, it has been a week of getting honest with ourselves + creating peace in our space at home. Now its time to get real with each other. If no one else will tell you I will. Its time to take that leap. Whatever idea, pitch or project that you have been putting on the back burner, it is time to release that baby into the world. You have sat on it long enough. You have done the research. You have stayed up late putting in the work. Dreaming, planning and imagining. You know exactly what needs to be done. Pushing Past It is time to push past…

    Creating a Space of Peace

    (This page contains Affiliate Link. For more information see my disclosures, here) Im all about vibes + energy. There is something to the notion that vibes/energy can be transferred from person to person. The same way people hold energy, so do spaces. Ive been in a super creative mindset lately wanting to add a little razzle dazzle to my home. Adding pieces here and there that bring me joy and removing the things that no longer “fit”. To me energy can bring on emotions + mindsets that are either positive or negative. If creating the energy in our homes or space is within our control, why wouldn’t we choose to…

    It’s Not Working: Tough Self Love

    Can you believe we are in the last week of my blogging challenge? I really cant believe we are starting week 4 today. Although challenging, so far I have learned a ton! I plan on posting a reflection post next week on all the things that I learned about myself during this time of flexing my blogger consistency muscle. This week, however I want to talk about my confessions. Yep, you read that right! Last week I had to have a hard conversation with myself and show tough self love. I had to be honest and admit what I already knew to be true. I dont know about you friend,…

    Mid Year Check-In: 4 Simple Steps

    I can not believe that we are already in the last weeks of July! It seems like 100 years have passed since NYE 2019 + in the same breathe it feels like there is no way that we only have 5 months left before we are ringing in another New Year. With less than half of the year left, you might be wondering where has all the time went? Dont worry I am wondering the same thing. Usually during this time of the year, end of summer/ start of fall, I take inventory of where I am mentally, physically + emotionally. Check-ins with yourself is vital to understanding what is…
