Hello all from the lighting capital of the world TAMPA, FLORIDA. Get ready because we are trying to. Hubby and I are relocated to Florida. Never would I have thought we would be here. But look at this how life throws us changes. Either we take them or sit still waiting for things to just happen. We moved in the matter of about three weeks and it has been one hell of a ride!
I’ve always been on a hunt. I don’t ever exactly know what I’m looking for but I am always looking. I’ve been called different names a wanderlust, a searcher, ADD, ADHD, spoiled, restless. All different names but it’s not my fault. I am looking for happiness. I find it for a short time but then it doesn’t make me happy anymore and I’m on to the next thing.
I moved to Indiana by myself when I was 22 with 100.00 to my name. I made it and loved it but eventually moved back home because I missed my family. I am starting to realize that THINGS do not make me happy. What truly makes me happy are adventures, hard times, good times, all memories, people, myself and love.
This brings me to always search and learn. New locations, lifestyles, mantras, hobbies, and skills. Recently I started to research what is Minimalism and I am glad I did. Although this has been about a month of research I am feeling better even just THINKING about living my life as a Minimalist. I recently found a documentary on Netflix and had the hubby watch. Even though I appreciate this lifestyle I need to introduce it to him slowly, he’s not one for radical change. I can not wait to get rid of all the bins of clothes and shoes!
We will be living in South Carolina within two years and we will live our dream life. Hubby and I have went over it hundreds of times and I’m so happy to say that we are both on the same page. I can not picture myself living in this rat race any longer. I want to make my family and myself happy. The Law of Attraction works and I just need to really start focusing on my happiness. I will no longer let any negativity in my circle.
Life is good but it can always be better. I’m not sure what being an adult is but I know what I am going to make it. Hopefully just don’t lose my mind on the pursuit of it.
Hubby and I came back from Florida last Wednesday. I can still say we are both not fully settled lol. We were only there for 9 days but man does it really throw me off. This trip was defiantly anything I expected. It really showed me how much I have grown. It tested my patience, anger, self love, and my relationship. I don’t really want to get into every detail but staying with another persons family or friend that I personally have not spent time with before I will not stay with them.
I am actually really happy that it was such a tough trip. I am now on the road AGAIN to my zen. I am bringing nothing but positivity to my life. Before I even take my first step I will be saying my positive mantras. I am calm, cool, and collected. I will not continue to let negativity affect my life.
I am saying it today I WILL LIVE IN South Carolina. I am giving my self the MOST three years. I will be there and I WILL start my family there.
Hello I am back again with another DIY Beauty post. This new one is now a new face mask miracle. In one of my many, many trips through Pinterest I saw many different type of face masks. I originally tried baking soda and Apple Cider Vinegar. It was a nice mask but it burned and left my skin really coarse.
So the next go around I added a teaspoon of activated charcoal powder. I didn’t realize how much I was actually going to make thankfully my wonderful hubby brought me home a bunch of these white and black containers and I was able to save the rest.
I put about 4 tablespoons of ACV in a plastic cup about 4 shakes of baking soda and a spoon of activated charcoal powder. Don’t worry when you add the baking soda and it starts to fizzle. After all of the mixing it will turn into a paste. When all is mixed, put the paste on and let harden. It will sizzle, harden, and turn gray. When I wash the mask off I wash it off with my hands and then I use a face towel and wash in circular motions.
It is my best face mask I have made. My skin feels the softest and cleanest it has in a while! My skin also feels tighter. I definitely suggest trying it out!
One day my co-worker walks in with a mason jar with what looked like lumpy goo. As I asked he informed me it was Overnight oats. The other day I had a flash back of this conversation and went to my handy dandy Pinterest and picked three recipes to try. I made my list and headed to the super market (which I hate but I was determined and cheap.)
The first receipt I tried was Coco and Peanut Butter Overnight Oats
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup unsweetened milk of choice
1 tablespoon chia seeds or flax seed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
0-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
My first try I used
Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 tablespoon honey
I tolerated it. I did not love it. It was actually super biter. I used original coco and also just one table spoon of honey. Next time I will use either 2 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup. But it did fill me up for much longer than scrambled eggs and I felt so adult that I was able to actually follow through!
Tomorrow will be my Apple Sauce cinnamon experience!
