In this past month I've had to train myself. Train myself to stay focused. Focus to complete a goal daily. Focus to complet my goal of drinking a gallon of water a day wasn't that easy. Drinking a gallon of water takes time and has to be done throughout the day. The focus comes in when you have a million other things going on on any given day, and you have to remember you still have a task that must be completed by the the end of it. The focus must come in to stop yourself from getting caught up in a hectic day, take a few minutes to stop, gather yourself, and do something healthy for your body.
Week two into my #30DayWaterChallenge and I’m feeling great! As promised, here is a quick update on my water journey. Before I began this challenge 1 week ago my morning went something like this: Wake up, stumble downstairs to the kitchen, immediately turn the Keurig on, and have a cup of coffee. It’s pretty much the same now, but instead of #butfirstcoffee, it’s #butfirstwater. Opening the refrigerator, grabbing my water bottle from the bottom shelf […]

Each year of my life is a special gift from God and I really want to make sure I'm taking advantage of each day. I want to do things that make me happy and get me excited about life. I want to make sure I am actually doing the little things I tell myself I want do but never really get around to it. So, I made a list of 28 things I want to do before my birthday rolls back around next year, November 8th, and I turn 29.
On Thursday, Jessica D’Argenio Waller of Make Tribe, hosted an event at Artifact Coffee focusing on fermented foods. Fermented food? What is that? You may ask. Don’t worry I was in the same bucket as you, not knowing very much about what fermented food consisted of other than meat and cheese. So, I thought it would be interesting to check out. My boyfriend purchased the tickets for both of us to attend the skill supper […]
Living in the Federal Hill/ Locust Point neighborhood it had been a struggle for me to find a coffee cafe that had some charm. I found myself at Starbuck a lot, and lets be honest; Starbucks is nothing special. I needed to find a place that opened early like Starbucks because I like to start my day at 5Am, but had a little more flavor. I work from home so I enjoy going to a […]
Wednesday afternoon, I snapped a few pictures at Bookmakers Cocktail Clubs opening in the Federal Hill neighborhood of Baltimore and I wanted to share the photos with you. I’ve been anxiously waiting for this bar to open all summer! I LOVE living in Federal Hill, but honestly I don’t really hang out that often socially in the local bars. *Here are a few reasons why Bookmakers is an awesome addition to Federal Hill* I appreciate the […]
My parents called me a few days ago and asked if they could come up from Virginia and visit us in Baltimore for the day; and of course I said “Yes!” My parents are welcome any time! They are so much fun and always a pleasure to have around, but honestly, I wasn’t prepared to host a brunch on such short notice. So, I started brainstorming and thinking about what types of food were already […]
I followed my own advice from my last blog post, ” Flicks On The Hill: Essentials for the perfect picnic”, and ordered pizza to take to the park instead of packing a picnic. This was perfect, instead of me cooking as I normally would to prepare for a traditional picnic. All we had to do was grab the wine, the pizza, and go enjoy Jurassic Park. I’m all about trying new places and I had […]
