My favorite book of 2017/2018 and life

I always was like “I’m not a self help book type of person” until I read this book. Its my favorite book of 2017 and 2018 and I’ve made several people buy it. I’m reading it now for the 2nd time and I NEVER waste time reading books a 2nd time (there are so many books to read!).

This has got to seriously be the most motivating book in the entire world. I don’t know how he does it. He’s not giving you like “steps” but he’s giving you principles. And real life experience. And he reminds you that getting what you want is hard work and backs it up with his stories of failures and wins and how it all ties in to the big picture.

Please read this book. If anything it reminds you that life is not to be wasted and that we should be working as hard as we can to achieve our dreams and visions.

Purchase “Get Shit Done” here at my amazon affiliate link (and then I make like another 3 cents!)

Winter Chicken + Kale Salad

I didn't start January with any grand healthy eating gestures because for the past couple months I've been kind of enjoying being bad! having beer when i want! eating bread! not exercising! its legitimately fun. eventually i'll get it together but not quite yet (i'm usually pretty good, but lately im in this 'throwing caution to the wind' type mindset, starting a business, ok! drink beer whenever? ok!

but i digress. this winter chiken and kale salad from i will not eat oysters looks amazing though. and easy. its my inner healthy girl trying to get out

Eye Glasses

Image I//Image II//Image III

I have been getting migraines a few times a month since I can remember (except when I was pregnant or doing whole30 - unfortunately, both of those are really hard to do consistently) - but for the last few months it seems like I've had a headache almost every single day and I realized that maybe things aren't as clear as I believe? So today I decided to spontaneously get an eye exam and now I need glasses :( Its nothing crazy but he says it will relax my eyes and when I wore the test ones I was SOLD. If this solves the headaches and migraines I'm going to go CRAZY. I'll be so happy.

What do you think of these styles? I guess I kind of have to have fun with the clear or round?!

Do you know of any good brands/styles? Fill me in!

Also...Stranger Things. I'm hooked. post...the new sunglasses trend and I'm so curious what you think..

Silk Shirts and Spring

Silk shirts are my jam right now. Am I behind the trend? On it? Ahead? I'm not sure, but I believe in them. I just ordered some for my store so you can be behind/on/ahead of the trend with me in March ;)
