"Your home is a beautiful reflection of you. Surround yourself in things you love that fill your heart with joy."
Most of you know my love of fashion, especially the way it can change the way you feel in an instant. You may not know that getting lost in the aisles of @homegoods or browsing the local consignment shop is one of my favorite things. When I'm stressed or feeling down, you can find me escaping in nature or at my local Homegoods. There's nothing like creating a beautiful environment that's cozy, warm and inviting. I didn't grow up with a lot of money as I was raised on layaway at Loehmanns or @dressbarn and learned to be super creative and resourceful and I do all my own decorating. I'm obsessed with discovering treasures especially when they're on clearance. ❄️❄️❄️ This holiday setting is from Homegoods while the centerpiece is made locally from seashells by the artists 🐚🐚🐚@growingwildflowers...another haven I head to when I need my spirits lifting or I'm searching for beautiful inspiration.❄️ Surround yourself with beauty that fills your heart and touches your soul. Cheers Beauties and a blessed holiday season🎁
《I Surrender to a Power Greater than Me》
This morning I woke up and went straight to work with spirit. I signed onto my #rsrs hub and let my intuition pick today's morning meditation. It happened to be, "Calling Myself Back Home" & Oh. My. God. I cried. Which some of you might be like, "Uh, really?" But yes, REALLY. I have been struggling so hard with the fact that I am lost. I don't know who I am anymore. I have simply let go of what makes me, me, and became the student who constantly works her butt off. 🏥 I don't take time for me anymore, I put everyone else first, & I've started doing things to please people, that aren't what I stand for. And after this mediation with @rebeccathoughts I felt centered again. 💎 Not yet grounded but centered. 💕 I struggle with the concept of being selfish when I put myself first, when I focus on my well being. I'm working it. It's just taking awhile. ••• I also started my @gabbybernstein deck in the morning sunshine 🌞 What a beauty... •

"Nurturing yourself is not selfish it's essential to your survival and your well being." Renee Peterson Trudeau •○•○•○• How often do you feel guilty when you do something for you? This can be hard for me to, but it is getting easier. I have to take care of me so I can be a good wife, mother, daughter, sister, coach, teacher. I notice when I neglect myself I have nothing to give to others and feel depleted.
My mornings and evenings are my special time these days. Mornings I set the tone for my day and evenings I unwind from my day with some light movement (and Golden Milk...yum). I just started my evening unwinding. Instead of sitting on the couch watching TV I started to stretch, move, and breathe.
It's been wonderful to slow down and check back in with my body, my heart and myself at the end of the day. I get pulled in many directions throughout the day (I am sure you do too!), so it's nice to come back to my center. ☆☆☆ Let go of the day and rest.
How do you unwind?
I always have an abundance of water kefir grains multiplying in my kitchen and I love finding a use for them.
As I mentioned I love putting a few in my smoothies so my number two discovery is whizzing them up with things like wild herbs and clay, turmeric and cinnamon, avocado, coffee and nuts for a nourishing facepack and conditioner.
Here I am this morning with nettles, turmeric, keffir grains and clay on my face and hair. 😂
Turmeric makes a great hair pack as it adds real shine and glossiness and the grains also add a wonderful glossiness. As someone who is recovering from disease and self hate my hair has been one of the things that is last to come back to me, it is recovering from breaking off and a lack of the thickness it used to have years ago.
I find that the most important thing is to treat stuff like this internally to readdress the balance and this in the longer term will change what’s on the outside but I also love making things that nourish and instantly work externally.
The good thing about being plant based, part wild, part fermented and vegan is that I feel happy turning any of it into a facepack 😊😉😂
