October | 90 Day Challenge

October is here, and along with all the fabulous fall festive posts, I’d like to add on to the list! From autumn accessories, frugal fall decor, to curated cozy home decor, I’ve got the posts for you! If you like creating your own style, from thrift store buys, clearance finds, and also secondhand chic items, this is the place to be!

I’ve put all my seasonal posts all into one page of my blog! As we enter October, its a mixture of Halloween galore to Thanksgiving! Don’t get to overwhelmed yet mama! To be honest, I’m just taking it one day at a time! This year, I told myself, “What’s the rush?!” Why do people overly consume themselves to push all Halloween decor our within the first few days of October?! We have all month!!! That’s just me!

Apart from accessorizing the home, I’ve also composed a page of kids crafts and DIY Festive Fun! Don’t miss out mama!! There’s enough time throughout the month of October to celebrate Halloween! I mean, it is on the the last day of the month! And it’s only the 1st!! 30 more day’s until Halloween! No rush, enjoy the month, because we all know the holidays come hitting us real hard, and then if you’re like me, you crumble with stress with family drama, and juggling schedules.

Which brings me to my #90DayChallenge.

How many times have you given up on yourself? 

How many times have you started and stopped? How many times have you broken a promise to yourself? How many times have your friends, or your partner or your children watched you walk away from your goals? 

This last quarter of the year, I plan to crush it. Literally crush it. Being the best me (wife, mother, friend, co-worker, employee, etc..) I’m going to commit to change over the next 90 days. There is no, “New Years Resolution,” because to be honest with yourself, that does not work!

There is no more long list of reasons, to push these goals off. Kill it for the rest of 2017, so you’ll set up for success come 2018. Come follow along with my #90DayChallenge on my Insta-Stories!!

5 Ways To Feel Younger

Let’s face it, growing up is hard. Finding the perfect career, finding the love of your life, growing a family, raising children, buying a house, saving for vacations, the list goes on. Life really wears us down. I mean, I work part time, but also handle many stay-at-home mom duties, the rest of the day. My children’s lives take over my own personal goals, which to this day, I still have trouble balancing. As we’re getting older, and so as our offspring, life passes by. Here are a few ways to feel and look much younger, fresher and more lively so life doesn’t break us down early on in life.

I love my age. Old enough to know better, young enough to not care. Experienced enough to do it right.

To through it out there, I’m 31. I hit my thirties just last year, and have been a parent for 10 years. I laugh when young twenty somethings tell me their tired. Because, when I was 24, already had a 3 year old, and newborn. I don’t want anyone reading this feeling like they are holding a special card saying their life is unique and that’s the reason why you feel so so tired. Well, truth is, we all have 24 hours in a day, and it’s up to you to run the day, or the day runs you.

  1. Cook More.
    Cooking your own food, in your own kitchen, not only gives you life skills, but also helps budget money, and saves time from going out and buying unhealthy food at you’re not preparing.
  2. Watch What You Eat
    Food is fuel. Eat right feel amazing!

  3. Sleep Enough
    Beyonce get’s 24 hours in a day too, and she has newborn twins and a 5 year old. Somewhere in her day she still manages to be a great wife, and mother, daughter, sister, and entertainer. Trust me, she’s tired too. We all are. Whatever your work schedule or lifestyle is, 7-9hours is definietly enough to get those ZzZz’s.
  4. Exercising Regularly
    In two weeks, you’ll feel it.
    In four weeks, you’ll see it.
    In eight weeks, you’ll hear it.

    Fall in love with taking care of your body. Period.

  5. Maintain A Positive Attitude
    You are what you think you are when it comes to aging. Seniors who think of age as a means to wisdom and overall satisfaction are more than 40% likely to recover from a disability than those who see aging as equal with helplessness or uselessness.

Feeling younger, and loving your age isn’t rocket science. It’s all common traits we all know, but its all about the attitude and how much you really want to feel great and feel alive. Money isn’t a factor. And don’t let that run you. If you can’t afford to take that SoulCycle class, or new trendy gym downtown, take matters into your own hands and work-out at home. Waking up, get up, and tackle these 5 things. Feel good and feel great!
