Hello Blog World!

I know it's been a long time, but I'm back! These past few moths have been super tough, but I'm so excited for what the future holds. I'm inspired. I'm happy. I am especially grateful for life, my husband, my family, my friends, my new job, and this blog! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

                                                                          Please come back soon!

Self-Care Wednesdays!

Hey friends,

So as I mentioned in my last blog post, I've been working on me as a whole lately (which isn't easy, let me tell you!). Sometimes when you reach a dark low, once you start to emerge you realize that you are not taking care of your body, mind, and soul in the optimum way. I'm not the kind of person that puts the oxygen mask on first, before helping others. Hence, I've decided to start a new series on my blog called "Self Care Wednesdays!" I think too many of us focus on helping others (which isn't bad), but forget about taking care of ourselves. At the end of the day, if you aren't making sure the foundation is strong, the whole structure will fall. Also, why should people take your advice when you don't even apply it to your own life.

Something I started incorporating in my daily routine a couple of weeks ago is setting an intention for the day in my journal. I've collected journals throughout the years, but the habit of journalling never really stuck. I find that having a focus has really helped me commit to everyday. Before I leave for work I set a positive intention for the day. This may be for me to be positive, forgiving, confident, grateful, and the list goes on. Whenever I see myself getting frustrated or negative throughout the day, I think back on my intention and try to refocus towards positive thoughts. Hopefully, I can stick to get, because I call tell it is already working. It's the Law of Attraction people!

Do you have any self-care routines that you can't live without?

Everything will be Amazing...

Hello old friends,

It's been a long time, a very long time. Over the last few months I've had to step back and reevaluate life. It hasn't been the easiest thing to do. I'm not out of the tunnel yet, but I'm making strides towards the light. I've started on a journey to find me.....the divine spirit that exist amongst all the negativity, stress, worry, fear, etc.

I've rededicated myself to writing on this blog, because truthfully I need an creative outlet. I need to get the words out. I need support and love. I need to believe that in the end everything will be AMAZING (if I will it, the UNIVERSE will make it so!).

As always, thanks for reading. Stay tune. Leave a comment.

Just hold on, I'm coming home....

Hello friends in the blogosphere!

 I know I have been MIA lately, and I'm sorry. I really want this blog to work and to post at least 3-4 times a week. I have so many ideas floating around in this (big) head of mine. I just under estimated how many stressful responsibilities I had in my life currently. It's been very difficult working full time, being a part time graduate student, maintaining my home, and above else finding quality time with my husband. Sometimes thinking about all of it at once makes me scream!!! Even though I know I shouldn't add anything else to my plate, I really want to make this blog happen, because I need a creative outlet.

Sorry for all the rambling. So for the few that already follow the blog, just hold on, I'm coming home (aka my blog) soon! Thanks for your support.

I hope everyone had a great V-Day and long weekend (for those in the States)! Even though I try to show my hubby love everyday, it’s nice to see everyone get excited and celebrate love on one particular day. My hubby definitely spoiled me this year with a beautiful set of pearls. He’s so amazingly good to me! Check out our romantic dinner at home. I even made heart shaped pizza!

I’m learning more and more that sometimes you have to spoil the ones you love and yourself. One luxury item that I recently brought, and can’t live without is Fresh’s Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil. At first the thought of putting oil on my face, freaked me out a bit. I have combination skin, and it shines more often than I like. However, this moisturizing oil is so luxurious, and every time I smell it feels like I’m visiting a spa. I only using two drops a day, and for extra moister I mix it with my daily moisturizer. I definitely recommend it! 


                                                                                     Have you tried it?

Happy V-Day!


                            Have a fabulous day everyone! Enjoy this special mix I put together!

New York Fashion Week (for the rest of us)

As a born and raised New Yorker, New York Fashion Week has always been something I simply adore. I especially give kudos to all the fashionistas (and fashionistos) that looked fabulous while braving the elements during this past fashion week.

Sadly, I’ve never been to any shows in the tents. I guess that is something to put on my bucket list. The best tread that I have seen emerged from NYFW is Harper’s Bazaar Emojis. 

Have you seen them? They are so freaking cute! You can download the App here. Now we all can have fashion fun all year around (for free)!

Nighttime Ritual

So I’ve been having a rough couple of weeks. Sometimes I feel like my body is seriously falling apart. I’m definitely taking this as a sign that the Universe is telling me it’s time to give extra care to my mind, body and spirit.

Here are a few things that bring a smile to my face after a stressful day: My Muji Aroma Diffuser, Tazo Tea , and Anthro Monogram Mug. I might have incorporate these things into my nighttime ritual.

                                                                Do you have any nighttime rituals?

Cooking Machine

As I said in my last post, it has been a tough past few weeks for me. I’ve been focusing on things that make me happy, and as a result I’ve been cooking up a storm! I made some tasty banana blueberry bread for my coworkers on Thursday, then I fried up some catfish for a southern dinner on Friday, last night I make pork masala mushroom dish, and tonight I made lasagna! Yes, it’s a lot of work, but it really brings me joy to see my hubby’s face light up and when he sees all the yummy food.

Here are some links to the recipes!

Wishing everyone a great long weekend! Happy cooking!

Sometimes life knocks you down....

Man oh man! This past week was super stressful and tough for me. I got my butt kicked by work, cried more than I would like, and felt defeated. Every night I came home with a terrible headache and was utterly exhausted by the time Friday evening rolled around. However, sometimes you need to get to those points to refocus and rebalance. I hope to figure out the changes I need to make to get me back to my happy place. 

In other news, Mother Nature didn’t make this week any easier. This past week’s polar vortex thingy made me feel like a big walking marshmallow! Thank goodness for my Zara scarf; I was a stylish walking marshmallow. Here’s hoping for sunnier and warmer days ahead!

I hope everyone has a great week, and I will be working on getting back up!

Happy 2014!

I can't believe the new year is here. I've been battling a mean cold since New Year's Day, but I'm starting to feel better. Here on the east coast we are trying to stay warm and recover from the "Hercules" storm. I've been locked up in the house, snuggled under the covers. Tomorrow I return to work and I'm looking forward to blogging more and sharing my goals with all of you. I encourage you to follow for the ride!
