Soooo I’ll admit, I was a skeptic at first – a HUGE skeptic. I just didn’t really understand the phenomenon of meditation and to be honest, I don’t think I was ready to try to understand it… + Isn’t that just some hippy-dippy thing that people pretend to do and pretend that they’re invested in just to sound cool? + How on earth does someone actually just STOP and do nothing except sit and be with themselves for an extended period of time? + How do you just quit social media, stop checking in, disconnect and be with you & only you? + How do you get your brain to turn off, shut down, be quiet? + What do you even do? Those were my thoughts on meditation before I started trying it for myself.…

Hi babes! I feel like I’ve been on break for forever now and really, it only just began today. We had so many snow days back-to-back… like Friday the 10th was the first one and the only days that school was open last week were Wednesday and Friday. Friday didn’t end up actually being a school day ( for me anyway ). A 90’s club opened on Thursday night and Alexah & I went and let’s just say it was a night I will never remember, so school was not happening the next day. We had fully intended on going, but it just didn’t happen. This week is my ‘spring’ break even though there is really nothing spring about life around here currently. The smallest snowbanks are like 3 feet tall and the path next to…

Hi hi! Happy almost weekend! Woo! Have any big plans? Today I thought I’d do a fun, quick Valentine’s Day version of The Friday Five. I haven’t done one of these posts in SO long… and I kind of forgot how much I love them! / five things i am loving: Just a whole random assortment of things lately… > My new iPhone: I feel as though I go through phones SO quick and recently I just bought an iPhone 7. I really wanted the iPhone 7 Plus [ I don’t really know why… I feel like the size would end up driving me INSANE! ] but I settled on the plain ol’ 7. And let me tell you – I love it. I finally got the rose gold phone and I have the cutest clear Kate…

Hi! It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? I don’t really know where the time has gone, but one minute I was spending hours re-designing the blog and working on new posts & the next I was swamped in school work, overwhelmed with a bunch of drama [ the teachers may or may not be on strike, my placement may or may not be cancelled, my mama’s teacher heart may or may not be breaking every day ]… So ya! Here we are, almost two weeks later… Today I thought I’d just do a fun post. I saw this over on Erika’s blog earlier this week & thought it could be fun. As she said in her post – she loves being nosy & figures a LOT of other blog readers do, too ( isn’t that why you’re…

Hi hi! How’s it going? SO much on my mind lately that I’m dying to dig deeper into and share & let me tell you, they’re all over the map. A little overview of a few things coming up on the blog in the next weeks – horoscopes, moon cycles ( OMG!! ), meditation, gut health, antioxidants, oils, deodorant, turmeric, bloat… and the list goes on. For today, we’ll keep it easy & talk personality. Anyone out there ever feel like they don’t fit into the category of introvert, but also know that you aren’t exactly an extrovert either? I’ve always known that I wasn’t completely an introvert because I do like to go out, talk to people, share my life with people ( duh ) and have a good time when I’m with others. BUT…
