Finally Fall ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚

It’s finally starting to feel like Autumn up here in New York! Don’t get me wrong, Iย love the summer, but there’s just so much magic in fall. It always seems like a period of rebirth, in my opinion. We can shed the old to make way for the new!

That being said, I officially starting my journey today as a part-time working mom! I’ve been working full-time for years and entirely since my daughter was born almost a year and a half ago. Sometimes, I get nervous because the money is going to be scarce, but beautiful days like today remind me that there are so many amazing things in life that are completelyย free.ย 

Spending time in nature, jumping in leaves, and looking at the amazing October leaves are all I need… Sometimes I just need that reminder in life.

I’m not sure what it is like in other parts of the country/world, but here in the Northeast, everyone is always rushed. Crazy rush hour drivers risking their lives to make it in to a job they hate, miserable people waiting in line at the grocery store because they have somewhere better to be, and people working themselves into hysteria.

I’m over it.ย 

Going to start living more the way Autumn lives… basking in the sun with a cool breeze, not worried to let things go…

Glow Like a Surfer Girl โ˜€๏ธ

Am I the only one who has a strange wish to be a healthy, glowing, Hawaiian surfer girl? Their skin always looks so… quenched. Lol.

Anyway, with winter coming and our forced air system getting ready to dry up our skin, I was hoping to see what everyone’s home remedies are for dry, flakey alligator skin. ๐ŸŠ

I’ve tried a humidifier, lathering myself in coconut oil, and going through an entire stick of lip balm a week and still get pretty crocodiley … So I would love to hear other ideas ๐Ÿ˜„

In the meantime, I highly suggest the brand Kopari. They make natural products with coconut oil that smell amazing and keep you sun kissed throughout the winter. โ˜€๏ธย (Not endorsing the brand, just generally love it and suggesting it highly!). They are a bit on the expensive side in my opinion, but I love how the smell brings me right back to summer ๐ŸŒŠ

Anyway, wishing everyone a moist winter (sounds strange, but you know what I mean)!
