Feeling Guilty About A Splurge?

Feeling Guilty About A Splurge?

Whether it was Prime Day shopping or just a random shopping spree at Ulta Beauty (#truestory), it’s easy to feel guilty about spending money. Your brain starts asking all sorts of questions: Do I really need this? Should I get this now or wait? What if it goes on a bigger sale later? Or maybe that’s just how my brain operates.

While I can’t tell you how to spend your money or what works for your budget, there was a quote I saw recently that I’ve been unable to get out of my head when it comes to splurges. Maybe, it will help guide some of your decisions too.

My Experience Using the Law of 100

My Experience Using the Law of 100

I’ve talked about it before, but I’m definitely someone that’s motivated by keeping a streak alive. So when I first heard about the Law of 100 (also known as the Seinfeld Strategy) on the Mindset Mentor Podcast, I jumped at the challenge.

The big idea is to commit to doing something for 100 days straight. If you miss a day, you have to restart the count back at 1. In February, I committed to writing at least 401 words a day and today, I marked day 100 off my calendar!

Spring 2022: 5 Podcasts I’m Listening To

Spring 2022: 5 Podcasts I’m Listening To

Running has a way of making me hate my favorite songs.

I’ve talked about it before, but I’m the kind of person that listens to audiobooks or podcasts while running rather than listening to music. So, I’m always on the lookout for new podcasts. I shared what I was listening to back in the summer of 2020 (yikes, what a time…) but decided it was time for an update.

In this blog post, I’m sharing five of my current favorite podcasts!

What I’m Into: March 2022

What I’m Into: March 2022

Happy spring!

I hope the new season is treating you well. I’ll admit, I’m still struggling with the whole time change, though I do love how late the sun is up! It makes me crave all things summer: lounging by the pool, enjoying a glass of Frosé, and fun beach reads!

With all the changes lately, I wanted to share a new list of my recent obsessions.

New to Visualization & Manifesting? Me too

New to Visualization & Manifesting? Me too

I’m a bit late to the party on this one, but I’ve been recently exploring the power of visualization, manifesting, and the law of attraction. Before you roll your eyes and close the tab, stick with me a minute.

I’ve long had my doubts that visualizing something you want could help actually bring it into existence, but a recent two-part podcast series made me reconsider my assumptions. Or at least give it a try.

The Best Books to Help You Accomplish Your New Year’s Resolutions

The Best Books to Help You Accomplish Your New Year’s Resolutions

It feels like we just celebrated the new year, but somehow, we’re already nearing the end of January?! It’s bizarre, because I remember last January feeling like it stretched on forever. Time is weird.

While the end of January typically marks the end of people’s new year’s resolutions (some of mine included), I’m hoping a fresh surge of inspiration will help keep the momentum alive. For me, that usually involves sitting down with a book related to the goal I’m trying to accomplish. Whether your goal is related to fitness or creativity, I hope these books will help you as much as they’ve helped me!

October 2021: What I’m Into

October 2021: What I’m Into

With Halloween this weekend, I’m a bit sad that ∼spooky season∼ is coming to an end, but it also means we can all get into full holiday mode! (Not like I need more candles.)

I haven’t shared a round-up in a while, so I figured it was time to share my latest joys & interests.

My favorite FREE meditation app

My favorite FREE meditation app

Have you ever noticed the more you try to fight an idea, the more it fights back?

Like let’s say you hate carrots and refuse to eat them, and then suddenly, you start seeing articles spouting the health benefits of carrots everywhere? (Maybe, you have no idea what I’m talking about and that’s OK too.)

But this is the relationship I have with meditation.

I hate the idea of being quiet, sitting still, and focusing on my breath. Yet, all of the life-changing benefits of practicing meditation keep popping up for me.

August 2021: What I’m Into

August 2021: What I’m Into

I always find August to be such a weird month.

It’s back-to-school for kids and feels like the unofficial end of summer. Yet (here in Florida at least), summer is still going strong with plenty of sun, humidity, and HOT temperatures. I’m excited about the upcoming change in season and holidays being on the horizon, but I also feel sad that I didn’t get out to the beach or pool as much as I wanted.

Does anyone else feel like this??

Given the whole summer ending/fall beginning vibes, I wanted to share a new round-up of my favorite things right now!
