It’s no secret that I undoubtedly spend a LOT of time and $$ in Anthropologie! What can I say, it’s a pretty amazing place; one stop shopping if you will(exactly what we mommy’s on the go need) and they house classics as well as the latest in trends! Speaking of which, have you all jumped on the Shibori print trend? I couldn’t help but notice this Asian take on tie-dye, popping up all over my local Anthro! I mean everything from maxi dresses to dish towels!! It’s pretty eye-catching!

Here are a few of my Anthro-Shibori Favorites. . .

Hidden Places: Sparrow Lodge

As you probably already know, the hubby and I love to pack the bags up to explore California.  Well, I found a quaint place in Palm Springs called Sparrow Lodge we are sure to try once June gets older and we can leave her with the grandparents…It’s an Adult only spot!  The Sparrow Lodge is not your typical hotel in P.S., but well worth your time.  With its rustic charm, relaxing views, daily breakfast included, and friendly room rates, you are sure to fall in love.  Just don’t expect to lounge in your room watching television.  No phones or t.v. allowed.  Perfect for a quick getaway to relax and reboot. Want to shut the world out. . . book a room at the Sparrow!

Let’s go inside. . .

Healthy Habits

They say if you do something for 30 days, it becomes a habit. Well, I’ve got 25 more days before taking my daily vitamins will hopefully no longer be an after thought. Unfortunately, I’ve been down this road a time or two before. I get all pumped about it and do well for a while, a few times past the elusive 30 day mark, and then fall off. Waaayy off! But in an effort to maintain good habits and not focus on my past lapses, I’m giving the vitamins another go.

Even though I love food and enjoy eating, I don’t eat proper meals consistently. I tend to go several hours in the day on snacks, bites or just a little something. I’m often running around and switching gears throughout the day that if I don’t properly plan ahead, eating gets lower and lower on the to do list. Needless to say, I begin to feel tired and have low levels of energy. But it’s really no wonder since I’m not giving my body its daily nutrients in a timely manner.

In an effort to be proactive about it, I did a little research I made a quick list of supplements to add to my diet. I also talked to my mother because she and my 98 y/o grandmother take a bunch of vitamins like clock work and have no major health concerns. With her input, I set out for the grocery store. I decided to start with a multivitamin, fish oil, vitamin D, vitamin C and B12. Oh, and powdered greens to add to smoothies. I also got magnesium to take as needed in the evening. This is supposed to help you relax and the first day I took it, I immediately took an unanticipated nap.

I know it’s only been five days and I’m mostly feeling the palcebo effect but I am contributing my sustained energy to the vitamins. I haven’t felt sluggish or been yawning throughout the day. And not to put all my dependence on the vitamins, I’ve also been more conscious of eating in a timely manner. Time to get serious, lol. Since I feel so much better, I’m hopeful that I’ll meet my goal.

I’d love to know, which vitamins do you take?
