Wow! Can you belieeeeeeeeve it? The last day of April!?! How in the HECK did that happen?
We’ve been pretty lucky this month and have actually had some fan-TASTIC weather, but it seems lately that Mother Nature’s been making up for lost time…tornadoes, flooding, hail?! Eeeep! She may be a crazy one, but I gotta give it to her, my
fro curls have been ROCKING these last few days!
So being as it’s the last day of the month, I think you know what it’s time for! 😀
I’ve recently become really interested in essential oils so I borrowed a few books from a friend that are all about them! Yep, one more win for the hippie cult! I told you guys about the party at the bestie’s mama’s house earlier this month, but I didn’t mention that it was a Doterra party. I really just went to see my girl, hang with my mom, and let’s face it…there was wine…but I ended up being converted! I’ve dabbled in lavender and tea tree before, but I’m super excited to learn more…especially since I splurged and bought one of the starter kits!
This has been a GOOD month for music…thanks to my Spotify obsession and my yogi friends, my music library has basically doubled! And this remix of Tove Lo’s “Habits” has definitely been one of my favorite finds!
Current Guilty Pleasure:
Yoga. You guys!!! I just bought another unlimited month pass…and I still have my gym membership…and I can’t remember the last time I stepped foot in there! 😯
Current Nail Color:
I was rocking some pink for ohhhh about a day and a half…before it started to chip away and look like crap…even WITH a base and top coat! Ugh, that’s what I get for straying from my ever faithful Essie!
Game of Thrones and LOTS of (free) Redbox rentals!
A massage! I’ve actually had one in the books THREE times this month, but had to cancel! But thanks to my VIP membership, that just means I get TWO next month…and I WILL make it happen!
Avocado, kabocha, sweet potatoes, and eggs…oh thank God for the EGGS!!!
…in that order. Please and thank you. 😉
Further progressing in my yoga practice! I’m really getting a lot more comfortable pushing myself outside my comfort zone and surprising myself with what my body can do! Just yesterday, I got into a forearm head stand for a few seconds…before tumbling to the floor…in a VERY graceful way I might add! And I’m not even being sarcastic!
Current Bane of Existence:
I promise to go into more detail tomorrow, but for now, I’m just going to say…myself. Or my mind actually. Life has been going really well for me lately…happiness is all around me…yet I’ve still found a way to work in some self-sabotage.
Current Blogger Crush:
Jenny from Peanut Butter & Jenny…I’ve been reading this girl off and on since I started blogging and besides being absolutely gorgeous (with a sense of style that I only DREAM of having!), she is indeed an old soul…wise beyond her years! This post from last week was EXACTLY what I needed.
Since I was very limited on nut butters/spreads during the cleanse, I actually rediscovered my love for coconut butter, on
just about anything, but mostly sweet potatoes!
And porn…chunk porn! Would you LOOK at that baby?! Seriously though, I don’t know what’s gotten into me…I went nearly TWO WEEKS without a single Quest bar but for the last two weeks, I had one every day! Lol
Having blends who know just the right thing to say at just the right time when I really need to hear it…even if it’s the same thing I’ve been telling myself forever.
When I haven’t been wearing yoga pants…and actually USING them for yoga, I’ve been in my scrubs (which is what I’m wearing right now) since I’ve been working an INSANE amount of hours this month!
The good thing about all those extra hours? I’ve pretty much paid for my plane ticket to Blend…TWICE! Take THAT companies who wouldn’t sponsor me! 😛
Now about actually purchasing that plane ticket…
Hopeful. I say this because I’m looking forward to May…for a fresh start. This month I’ve seen myself in one extreme or another far too many times to count…BUT I’ve also seen a few days of perfect balance. I want more of that. I want more days of feeling that I am in tune with AND RESPECTING my body. I’m ready to do what needs to be done to level out the teeter totter…because well, everybody knows it’s a bitch when you get dropped from the top!
What? You didn’t think I’d go a whole post without some pirate talk didja? 😉
