When I tell people I'm about to go on another adventure, they always seem shocked and then wistful...So I ask them what's the one thing that holds them back from traveling? They always say the same thing....Money.
And the thing is they have no idea how much a trip actually costs. They just believe that can't afford it so don't go any further. It becomes an unattainable dream. Something to imagine when they are caught in rush hour traffic or working a double shift. Some impossible fantasy that only happens to a select few. ~Sigh~
But you know what? It's not really about Money -- It's about CHOICES. What do you choose to spend your money on? Travel or a new, over priced car? A new luxury purse or a cruise? Sticking to a budget and watching your spending can allow almost anyone to save enough for a trip.
For me, hands down I would rather have the experience of travel than a new, shiny "thing". But that's what I choose. Which would you pick?
See you at the airport~
Today was spent desperately searching through old notebooks and scrapes of paper to find some brilliant idea I had 5 years ago. 🙄 This daily blog challenge is kicking my ass!
Where do you get your ideas and how often do you blog? Why did I think I could blog everyday? Shaking my head at myself over this one, I'm pretty sure I've never blogged a solid month ever! Plus it seems the last few years with me becoming busier and busier at work I'm blogging even less. #FML
Well so much for inspiration from the past. I found nothing I wanted to write about.
Screw this... I'm gonna make some tea and read....
Tune in tomorrow as I continue the daily blogging challenge and hopefully have something more exciting to write about, lol.
The blog challenge continues - warning this is gonna be kinda of boring. Being it's just an average day - its full of work and food, lol
4:45 a.m. Let's Do this! Coffee on the Patio/Water Plants/Wake Up
6:00 Yoga/Watch the sunrise/Cup of tea
6:45 Banana Nice Cream
7:20 Get dressed
7:45 Commute to my office (three rooms away)
7:47 Forget that I have laundry - so start the washer...
8:00 Begin Work
2:00 Back to work
6:00 Call it a day!
6:05 Commute to Kitchen, lol
6:07 Cook again
From 7:00-11:00 pm I usually read, sketch, write or watch a movie. Some nights I spend it catching up with friends on the phone. Then bed and do it again. #Goodtimes
Are you bored yet? This is just an average day. I will be traveling this weekend so maybe I will do another 'Full Day' post, and show you what I do when I'm on a road trip.
See you at the airport~
When I first read this on the blog challenge I thought of:
1. Paris (because I always think of Paris)
2. Birthday candles (Because of the wish thing)
3. Shooting Stars (Also make a wish thingy)
To be honest I don't wish for much. Just my son and myself to be healthy.
I feel we are so blessed with our lives in general.
So it made me stop and think what would I wish for? Besides health? Hmmm, I mean I could always use another pair of shoes or more cruises or a petite manison à paris, but who couldn't, right? World peace of course, and a trillion dollars and 888 new clients, but it just goes off the rails there. I start backtracking with what would I do with that much money? Taxes, fees, blah, blah and I can barely manage the clients I have now...add another 888? Are you kidding me?
So yeah, I guess I will stick to wishing for health, and more opportunities to travel. What would you wish for today?
See you tomorrow for another installment in the blogging challenge.
Today's blogging challenge - My Outfit
I was off work today, but it was a busy day running errands. I wore a long maxi dress, black sandals and carried a large black vegan bag. The dress is new, easy to care for cotton and very breathable in the late summer heat. I wish I had bought 6 of them! But I never know when buying maxi dresses online if they will be long enough. It is a problem finding a size medium that is the right length. I'm 5'9 and most of it is in my legs, lol.
My accessories were kept to a minimum, just a lovely over sized moonstone and silver cuff. My friend that just past away bought it for me several years ago as a birthday gift, making it even more of a treasure.
The weather is still unpredictable, but it turned into a nice sunny day.
Later that evening we had a lovely dinner with friends on the patio. It was a prefect day! Hope your Sunday was good as well.
Tune in tomorrow for the next random blog challenge post!
The blog challenge continues. Read past posts here, if you need to catch up.
Today I am sharing 8 things I am currently loving. These are not linked or sponsored. Just my personal finds that I use everyday and love.
If you visit here often or follow me on Twitter you know I love tea! And I love trying new organic, eco-sourced products.
This month I'm drinking Root Chakra Tea. Buddha Teas are not the cheapest teas, nor the most expensive, but they are some of the best. I want to say I paid about $6.50 for a box?
I love this small travel toothbrush from FFF. I picked it up as an add-on and love it! Its compact and super soft. It came with three, instead of two brush heads. I honestly have no idea what I paid, but I know it wasn't over $20-$25?
I am also loving the Essential Oxygen organic toothpaste and brushing rinse. I have been using the brushing rinse for over a year, but had a lot of Earthpaste stocked piled. #TrueStory - When I find a product I like I purchase a supply of it. #NOTaHoarder I promise.
Once I used it all, I bought the EO toothpaste to try. Now I really love it too.
The Toothpaste is only $8.09 on Amazon and the brushing rinse is $10.27.
I'm also so loving this Acure scrub and Nelson Hair Mask. I use both while soaking (and reading) in the tub, for a wonderful and relaxing afternoon. The hair mask really helps tame my thick locks and makes my hair super silky.
I love all of the Acure products! I finished off my last tube of facial scrub and decided to try this one with Sea Kelp. I'm so glad I did!
Also on my list:
Pacifica Dreamy Youth Day and Night Face Cream, which I also bought on Amazon for around $15USD. I not sure, but I think that was the subscription price? After using it a week I knew I wanted to try it our for several months, so I quickly added it to my monthly subscriptions. It is amazing and so light weight. In this crazy summer heat you don't want a heavy cream on your face, making you sweat even more. I have been using it for about three months now and am very pleased.
It's not greasy at all and is easily absorbed into the skin. + Like all Pacifica products it is cruelty-free and vegan. #WIN
My last item is a couple of pens I received in a Sketchbox monthly subscription box. I am drawing more and am so pleased to try out new, professional grade products.
So how many is that?
Join me tomorrow for the next challenge post.
And the Blog Challenge continues...
We are beginning to get a lot more personal, aren't we?
Like most people I have issues that I need to work on...
So its time for another random list!
So that was random as fuck. Do you have anything you want to share? I see you reading this, but rarely does anyone comment. I do get personal emails from ya'll and I appreciate the encouragement very much. :D
If you missed any of this random challenge you can click here and see you tomorrow.
So far, so good, except this challenge is becoming personal very quickly. But I guess thats the point, yeah? Get to know the person behind the writing and all.
These first few posts are more general, but still I think it's what you are willing to share. How personal do you get? What do you want to know and what's insignificant? I'm writing posts for the queue because I will be traveling later in the month. I can hear you thinking, "YEAH! About time!" Trust me, I feel the same way. But in the meantime I will attempt to stay on top of this challenge.

Today's topic is "Thankful" I really have so much to be thankful for this wasn't difficult at all. Here are a few random thankful thoughts:
What about you? Can you come up with a quick list of things to be thankful for? I bet you can! I think we often forget how lucky we are and take things for granted.
