One of the things I embraced this year was the importance of self-care. However, not just on the outside, but on the inside, too. Actually, when you take of your inside, it shows on your outside and vice versa. So, I have a few go-to self-care activities that makes me feel and on occasion, look good.

For the past few months, I’ve been all over the place and not where I planned to be or pacing myself. In August, I usually use this time to plan the final quarter of my year. Instead, I spent most of August sick with bronchitis and no motivation. September is usually a little busy, because of my birthday and an annual family get-together. However, this September, I had hectic and time lapping plans each weekend. A hectic weekends followed by hectic work weeks caused me to have a couple of mid-week crashes.
As for October, even though it’s only half-way over, the theme for this month has been ‘stress’. Between helping a couple of people close to me deal with their personal issues and my car deciding that it was time for me dish out a few hundred dollars to keep it running, my brain (and wallet) is drained. So, I decided that I needed to do what only I can do for me; get myself together. I was listening to Myliek Teele’s latest podcast about finishing the year off strong and made me think about ways to end my year off strong.

I love fall! It’s my favorite jam. So, this past weekend, I spent the majority of my time throwing up fall vibes all up in my home. Actually, fall is one of my favorite times to break out my home decor ideas. Mainly, because fall decor is quick and easy to transition your home from basic home to a fall retreat. Since, I’m not one to spend hours trying to perfect home decor, I opt for small little adjustments and tweaks to add fall feels to my space.
Looking for some quick ways to add so whimsical fall visuals to your home without spending too much time or money? Well, keep reading, because I got you!
After yesterday’s tragic event in Las Vegas with senseless killing of 50+ and over 500 injured, my head and heart is numb. Sure, I could use my little struggle platform to share my political opinion, but I would rather not. If you want a little insight into my my opinions, you should follow me on Twitter. FYI, on Twitter, I’m sarcastically funny, love responding with GIFs, and RTs are my jam. Unfortunately, like on Twitter, there are days when you just want and need to withdraw from your everyday life. For days like that, I strongly encourage you to take a mental health day.
What is a mental health day, you ask? Well, it’s kind of like a personal day, but it’s suggested to take on days when your mind needs a break. For example, my co-worker took a personal/mental health day the after the election. Completely justified, if you ask me and our manager. The next question you might be asking yourself is “What does one do when taking a mental health day?” Well, keep reading for the answer.
Happy Birthday to Me! Today I’m overly happy to say I’m about to enter my 36th year of life. I love the beginning of anything, especially a new chapter of life.
However, the past is the past and today marks a new chapter of my life.
