Starting the New Year on a Positive Note

Happy New Year!
New Year’s Day always brings excitement and the allure of a new beginning to our lives. For many January 1st is the start of a new year and an opportunity for a fresh start! We declare that this year is going to be different. We make a list of New Year’s resolution to help us achieve our goals. The new year is started with fierce determination and positivity.  However, according to a Forbes article, only 8% of people actually achieve their New Year’s resolutions. I have to admit that some years I’m in that 92% of people who give up on their New Year’s resolutions. I then feel defeated for not keeping my New Year’s resolutions. So this year instead of making a list of New Year’s resolutions, I’ve decided to try something different. I really want to live a more positive life and to do that I must have a positive mindset. So, I’m going to start the New Year on a positive note by creating a Gratitude Jar and reading The Power of Positive Thinking.

How to Reduce Your Caffeine Intake

How to Reduce Your Caffeine Intake

I’ve been thinking about reducing my caffeine intake for a while now. But I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to do it. As I contemplated how I was going to reduce my caffeine intake I decided to use the same strategy I used to decrease the amount of sodas I used to drink. SUBSTITUTION!

The Ultimate Workout Playlist

Workout Playlist

Having a Workout Playlist is a must for high intensity workouts. If you have read my About Me page then you already know that I ‘m a little bit random. So, why should my Workout Playlist be any different? When I’m at the gym I like to listen to music that motivates me and songs that I can sing along to in my head! I like my heart to go “boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom” to the super bass in my ears!

Here are a few of my favorite places to shop.

My Favorite Summer Cocktail Series… The Mango Margarita

Mango Margarita
When life (or your cousin) gives you a bag of mangos, make Mango Margaritas!
This refreshing cocktail is my all-time favorite summer cocktail to make at home. It literally take about 5 minutes to make a whole pitcher worth. It’s the perfect cocktail for sitting pool side in sunny South Florida.
Ingredients:
1 large ripe mango
1 lime
1/2 cup of tequila
2 tablespoons of agave
1 cup of ice
Instructions:
  1. Cut up the mango into chunks
  2. Place all other ingredients into a blender
  3. Squeeze the juice of half of a lime into the blender
  4. Pulse the blender until mixture is smooth
  5. Pour mixture into a glass and serve
The best part about this recipe is that you can tweak it to your personal taste buds. If you like it sweeter add more agave. If you like it stronger add more tequila. this recipe makes enough for two servings. For a pitcher worth double the recipe. Cheers!
What’s your favorite summer cocktail? Comment below.

Youtuber Advice on How to Look Glam

And We Slay Image via Etsy Seller The Blowout. Go Check out her shop!
Since Beyonce has everyone running around trying to “Slay” their personal appearance, I started to look into ways I could step up my game! Luckily, I’m cute and don’t have a long way to go! HaHa! But, I know I’m not the only one out there who wants to “glam” up their look a little, so I decided to share some of my finds with you.
My learning style is 50% visual learner and 50% kinesthetic leaner. So when it come to practical skills like “looking put together” reading a long article about it just doesn’t cut it. If you’re like me, Youtube should be your new best friend. I search long and hard to find inspirational and motivational videos on how to look put together or “glam”. Not really! But I did find some great videos that I would like share… Enjoy!

My #TreatYoSelf Wish List

#treatyoself wish list Hey y’all! Yesterday, I saw one of the bloggers I follow on instagram (my username: sporadic_obsessions) use the hashtag #treatyoself.  Of course, I then clicked on the hashtag to see how others used it! Most seem to use the hashtag on drool worthy food pics. I have a serious sweet tooth, so I don’t consider deserts to be a treats. Cookies, ice cream, and cupcakes are just a normal part of my week!

But, I loved the idea of this hashtag as inspiration to do nice things for yourself. I think that self-love and taking the time to care for yourself is very important, especially for women. It’s easy for women to become so consumed with taking care of others (spouse, children, parents, boss, friends, ect.) that they put their own wants and needs on the back burner. And sometimes we neglect ourselves for so long that we can’t remember what we actually like, want or need. Now if the above self-care statements were not enough of a justification for “treating yourself” keep reading.

Pre Teen Easter Basket

Pre Teen Easter Basket ShoppingI know that Easter was over a week ago, but my Easter basket was such a big hit I decided to write a #latepost. This Easter, I made an Easter basket for a pre-teen young lady.  I’m not trying to brag or anything, but she LOVED it! Since my basket recipient was not a little girl, I didn’t want to make the traditional girly basket with coloring books, candy, and toys. I wanted my basket to be “on fleek” (that’s what the kids are saying these days). So, I asked myself what do teen girls like and where do teen girls shop (because at the end of the day pre-teen girls want whatever teen girls have)!
After, channeling my inner teen girl this is what I came up with. Continue reading
