Life Lately // November Favorites

Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Okay, I'm just going to come to terms with it, blogging is having to take a back burner right now with everything else going on. Come the new year, I am so excited to get back into a regular rhythm of blogging.

Life has been full with nannying, mentoring a couple new girls in their Beautycounter businesses, prepping for the holidays, IIN, and working on my own Beautycounter business. I LOVE my work and it's 100% worth the extra hours. For Thanksgiving, most of my family is coming to Philly and I can't wait to eat good food and spend time together. What are your Thanksgiving plans?

I thought it would be fun to share with you all a couple things I've really been lovely lately!

Lessons I Learned Going Gluten And Dairy Free

Saturday, November 3, 2018

About a month ago, I decided to try an experiment. For as long as I can remember, I have struggled with keratosis pilaris (KP), a condition characterized by little bumps on my upper arm and cheeks. It doesn't hurt or itch, but I've always been self-conscious of it. I've tried many different external treatments with no results, so I decided to make changes to my diet.

I have been very wary of making any changes to my diet due to my history with an eating disorder, but I felt strong enough to give it a try, and cut out gluten and most dairy. I have hesitated writing anything about this until now, because I was unsure how I felt about the whole thing. Note, this may be triggering for some. If you struggle with an ED, proceed with caution.


Long Weekend in Williamsburg

Sunday, October 21, 2018

Happy weekend! As I write this, I'm in Northfield, MN with my parents for a little rest and work retreat. It's so peaceful just being here. I slept in, started my morning with pumpkin oats and coffee, and have been working in my pajamas all morning. I also am having 3 Beautycounter socials while I'm here so I can show off all the Holiday sets with my MN friends.

A couple weeks ago, Blake and I took a long weekend trip to Williamsburg, VA. I'm a huge history person and have always wanted to go to Williamsburg. So, when I reached a big goal in my Beautycounter business, Blake said we could go to a Bed & Breakfast, and I chose Williamsburg.

We left early on Friday morning for our five-hour drive (like 4am, haha). I was still getting over a sinus infection I got earlier in the week, so I slept a lot of our drive. We made a stop in Richmond, VA for coffee and breakfast. I wish we could have explored Richmond more! Per a local's recommendation, we went to Sugar & Twine and had the most incredible biscuit sandwiches and coffee. I had a rosemary, goat cheese biscuit with egg and cheddar that was divine. I am a huge fan of biscuits and scones. I loved the atmosphere, the food, mugs, everything.
