My one self care goal this year...

  It's popular to begin the new year with self care goals: drink more water, eat nutritiously, work out. While I am trying to incorporate some of these into my days there is one thing I'm doing every night of 2020: Wash my face. Let me explain. I run two businesses which make my days full from about 6 am until 7:30-8:00 pm at least 4 days a week (and often more than that). Once I get done with my day I eat and then promptly fall asleep (I know...not great for digestion). And that means that I also often fall asleep without washing my face. I know, I know. I should have gotten good at taking care of my skin AGES ago!...

Bourbon Furnace Recipe

My favorite go-to drink during the holidays is a Bourbon Furnace! It's simple to make and such a cozy delicious drink! What you'll need: spiced cider & bourbon! Heat your spiced cider. This time of year I love to keep a crockpot of cider warm at all times. I add in cinnamon sticks & cloves to really spice the cider up!

My Mom would make us say "strongly dislike" instead and I applaud her for that. 👏🏻 For a few years, though, I have strongly disliked summer. I disliked the insanely hot days where you can't even enjoy the sun, I disliked my knowledge of skincare which makes it impossible to leave the house without slathering on sunscreen (reef & people safe sunscreen - buy it here!), and I disliked working long hours in a house that is too warm. Was a little resentful? Probably. Sorry to all the children in the world but I did resent you. I resented your fabulous summer days at the pool,...

My love affair with Matcha!

Last year I decided to switch my daily tea drink from an Earl Grey (still a FAVE) to matcha! And it's been a life changer! Each day I generally drink two Matcha Lattes: one in the morning and one before I begin teaching in the afternoon (my other business) and the change in my energy is noticeable. I work late four days a week (until between 7:45 - 8:15 pm) and I find I can make it to that time without dragging. And I generally get up and start working around 6-7 am. Obviously, every person's body is different but if you are interested in adding Matcha into your day here are the things you'll need to purchase: First, the Matcha itself. I...
