Accessorize Yo Bad A$$ Self

It's the beginning of December. This time of year is crazy ass BUSY! In actuality, I think that is an understatement. My mind is a jumbled mess of things to do, make, create, wrap, buy, you name it. I find peace in doing something for me each day. Today is this badassery of accessories.
Yes, I may be playing Duplo Legos with my 1-year-old or picking up my Preschooler in carpool, but I will at least feel like myself today. I'll feel like a supermom who has her sh*t together (is there such a thing?) with my armor of awesomeness. Sometimes our youness can be hidden behind closed doors. Actually, hiding out behind closed doors doesn't sound so bad some days... ;) Anyhoo, what makes you feel like YOU today?

Have a beautiful Wednesday, Bloggies!

Rockin' Out in Carpool

There is one song that completely takes me away every single time. It's the Calgon to my sanity. It is this:

I had it blaring (as loud as I could with little ears in the car) in the carpool lane today dropping off my 4-year-old. She and I were air guitar-ing it and I was singing and bopping away. She loved it and was following my lead.

Her teachers either a.) thought I was totally crazy b.) thought I may have put wine in my green smoothie or c.) were totally jealous that I was listening to this while they sing Mother Goose Rhymes all day. Either way, my morning was transformed. Just like this song always does, it put my mind at ease and ready to tackle another day!

What is the one song that transcends time for you?

Have a rockin' day!

My Vibe. My Tribe.

How true is this? Think about it. What you put out into the world is exactly what you will receive. If you are a grumpy-dumpy-cynical human being, then you will inevitably draw the same kind of people in. Then, you will just stare and insult each other all day every day. Karma, right?

Think about growing up. Your friends were those that liked the same things as you, be it sports, drawing, talking, etc. Why would being a grown up be any different? Now, as an adult, I do have an array of friends. I am blessed to have this. I have friends and aquaintances who all serve certain purposes in my life. All of them are great and fill my soul with what it needs. For these people, I am grateful.

Now, onto my tribe. I love my tribe. I respect my tribe. I NEED my tribe! As a woman who has a hard time asking for help, especially when it comes to my children (mommy guilt, what?), I need this tribe of woman for my sanity more than anything. They should be called my "sanity savers." I truly believe that by being open minded, non-judgmetal, and less cynical has brought to me my tribe of people. I've worked hard at it. I'm still working. Aren't we all? Nobody is perfect. Sometimes a great vent or gossip session feels good and then you move on about your life.

Listen, I'm in my mid-thirties. I definitely know there was a time in my life when I was with some others who weren't the best to feed my soul. It's truly not that they are bad people at all! It's just that our vibes didn't mesh. I sincerely wish "the others" the best in life; happiness, fulfillment, and grace. Now, I'm talking about friends and aquaintances through every stage in my life- not just one. So, don't go scratching your head wondering if I've written you off! Chances are, you are still fondly in my mind and memories, and often thought of warmly, with affection.

I wish you all, beautiful bloggies, a life in which you can find your tribe. Think about the type of people you want to attract, and send out those vibes. Just like in 'Field of Dreams,' "If you build it, they will come."

"People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost." 
-Dalai Lama

p.s. for those of you who think I've fallen off my rocker. I may have! I'm holding on by a toe. It's still holding onto bad and inappropriate jokes, impatience, and sarcasm pretty damn good.

Product Review: Coconut Oil

It's back! My formal review on a product that I love (or not). I'm not really into talking negative about stuff, so I will only post bad crap if the things I'm using are truly bad crap...

COCONUT OIL! This is the one I use. I'm sure any of them are fine. I like to read the reviews on Amazon before purchasing. 

I use it for some many purposes! 

cuticle conditioner

WATERPROOF mascara remover: 
for real, yo. It works!


moisturizer (everywhere)

hair mask

wax remover (on body or hard surfacees)

diluting my essential oils

What do you use coconut oil for? I feel like there are so many great things to be had with it! 

Stay class, Bloggies. Have fun today. 

Life with Three

There are days when I don't even fathom the fact that I have three children. Then, something will happen where I totally feel like "mommy." Like this right here:

It's like, "oh! I DO have three children! Well, kids, mommy needs to get her workout on, so into Childcare you go!" 

What do you do for yourself? 

Stay beautiful, Bloggies...
