body image*

I've recently been struck with the thought of what health really is. During the summer we are often exposed to beautiful woman who have amazing bodies and can rock a bikini effortlessly, and I won't lie by saying I don't compare myself with these images. On the outside these woman are fit, healthy, and some people will go to unhealthy measures to become that way forgetting that every one's body is uniquely special. This does not mean starving or neglecting your body but rather loving and accepting it! Obsessing over your body is not is treating your body with respect mentally and physically.

In an attempt to make the most of my situation I have decided to switch things up in my everyday routine and try to live my life to the fullest..because in reality I'm not getting any younger.

Coco for Coconut Oil

If there is one thing most people know about me it is that I am completely, 100%, crazy in love with anything coconut! I love the scent, the taste, and above all the amazing benefits of coconut. Coconut oil in particular is amazing!!

Ever since I have gotten back from my vacation i've had the strongest urge just to cleanse myself of social media and technology... and frankly I don't know how to get back on it. Being away from the internet is something that is so relaxing! I've discovered an internal peace but I know that living in this day and age it is unrealistic to completely cut social media and technology but I wonder how different it would be if we didn't have it
