Hello SW readers! I've missed you! I hope you are all enjoying the start to fall. What do you think of the new headers on the site? Redesigning a blog is incredibly time consuming but rewarding. The intent via the revamp is to create a more simplistic navigation menu (less topics b/c who has the time) and photographic headers that best represent not only who I am but my interpretation of wellness. Photography classes are underway and to say I am passionate about it is an understatement.
So many of you have asked what I have been up since not being on the site as much so I thought a 'Personal Musing' blog was timely.
I have been undergoing a tremendous amount of change and spending a lot of time solo which I tend to need every once and awhile. I bill myself an 'extroverted introvert' so, 'me time' is essential. It's definitely been a season for me to reflect, slow down, make some major changes, and give back to myself in terms of really caring for my health.
My best friend and I recently attended the Be Healthful Wellness Retreat created by Sarah Baker of the Balanced Babe. It blew my expectations away! The space was fabulous & the wellness activities offered seemed endless! We were pampered with facials, plant based eats and makeovers. It was rejuvenating for both of us and the perfect girls day. One of my favorite blogs about the retreat can be read here. I am already eager for next year's event!
Fashion wise, I am enjoying a new deep chocolate hued hair color w/ honey highlights (new for me) which I love. I had the color done at Salon Blonde by Vita - she so damn cool. Wearing my hair naturally curly as well which is a change that I love. Adding a lot of plaid to my wardrobe and some new makeup hues - a red brick lip is my fall go to. I am finding the 'less is more' concept really breathes health into my soul.
Activity wise, I have been doing a lot of reading, resting and spending time at the lake. I just finished The Best Yes and it is a major game changer for what I will be saying 'yes' and 'no' to moving forward. Get the book - you will make decisions differently - promise.
Finally, I am writing a lot of content for MindBodyGreen & in the middle of writing an amazing editorial for Eco-Vegan Gal which I cannot talk about until it posts (one hint: Alicia Silverstone). Stay tuned for that! I also joined a writing team that I will announce in October!
So lovely readers...that's me. Tell me what you are adoring most about fall? Expect some soulful topics, fall fashion staples and delicious recipes on the blog in the coming weeks!
