I was quite active this week on the world wide web, I think making up for the week before where I was miserably sick and barely able to keep my eyes open to do anything. Also, there was just some GOOD stuff to check out, and I definitely feel more alive and connected and smart when I’m keeping up with articles and websites that I love.
So, as just as I share every week, here’s where I’ve been and what I loved…
How to de-pot your eyeshadows (A Glittery Life): After the major NYX swag bag I left with from IMATS, I now have a TON of eyeshadows to organize. I hate clutter, and organization just makes my brain work that much better. So, I was thrilled when my dear sweet amazing friend, Trisha, created a tutorial on her blog showing exactly how to do it. She even added a video tutorial for those of us who learn better that way. And while you’re over there, make sure you follow her blog and YouTube channel because she is amazing and has the sweetest heart ever.
Words can change your life: I’ve been talking and sharing a lot about all the work I’m doing to change the way I think. A friend sent me this short but incredibly inspiring video and I thought it fit perfectly with where I’ve been…
Sweet Sunshine Smoothie (withkendra): Every single day this week I haven been making and drinking this ahhh-mazing smoothie that my friend, Kendra, shared recently on her blog (a Robecks knockoff). We both seem to have the same taste in nearly everything, so I’m not surprised that I ended up just as obsessed. I actually made a few changes to the recipe, based on what we had on hand, and it was still just as amazing. (In addition to Spirulina we also used a cup of kale, and instead of vanilla yogurt we used organic strawberry kefir yogurt. I also added a tablespoon of chia seeds.) You guys absolutely have HAVE to try this smoothie. Also…you should totally follow Kendra’s blog & YouTube Channel. Obviously.
A 10 Calorie Homemade Sprite (the skinny confidential): It’s no secret that I love soda, but thankfully I have FINALLY given up the addiction. Well, I mean, I’ve at least replaced Diet Soda with my beloved Zevia. However, those can get a little spendy, and it’s still not quite as natural as I’d like. So, I was super excited when I saw this recipe! I already have my grocery list all made out and I plan to be sipping sweet healthy Sprite all weekend long.
18 trends that are totally over (whowhatwear): I always love checking out lists like these just to see what the “experts” are saying. However, I have to say, that I don’t normally choose my wardrobe and fashion choices based on what’s “in” or “out.” Some things will always remain “me” no matter how uncool they may be to others (flowy pants, I die.).
Where I’ve Been…
