Float adrift on memory bliss...

So it's Wednesday and between working for my new job, starting this show, planning some events, health issues, being a Mom and a million other things, I needed to de-stress. Big time. I also haven't had a chance yet to blog about floating which just so happens to be my new job so I killed two birds with one stone today and floated to relax and to blog about it too 

First of course please realize I do work at H2Om Float so I do have love for the place for that reason alone BUT this post isn't me as an employee. This post is me as a busy worker, entrepreneur and mama. Floating is simply LIFE.

I'd been thinking about it for days.. wanting to just get in a pod room, stick those ear buds in, shower off and crawl into the warm welcoming water for a complete hour of peace, quiet and pure bliss. I wanted an hour where my body didn't hurt, no one needed me for anything, the phone wasn't buzzing and my mind could just let go. 

Every day was filled with work, events, kids practices & games.. every day a new obstacle would prevent me from that hour of happiness. We are always on the go.
Today I said no more! Today was the day I was going to block off an hour for ME. An hour to allow myself, my mind and my body, to have a little time to unwind. After grabbing a couple of coffees at Dunkin Donuts, yes there's an addiction, and chatting with my coworker for a bit, I closed myself up in a room, stuck those ear buds in, showered off and slipped away...

Of course my brain kept yelling wait! The first 15 minutes of floating for me is usually filled with thoughts of EVERYTHING I need to do. I chastise myself and begin focusing on breathing... I feel like deep breathing allows me to change my mental direction. So after a little deep breathing I stretched my arms out, spreading my fingers and just stayed smiling. I felt good. I told myself an hour of floating was deserved. I told myself I needed this time, this energy, this healing for my mind and body.

The remainder of my float was mostly filled with creative thoughts, visualizing different colors and occasionally thinking of some business ideas. I believe it may be impossible for me to turn off the brain to business completely but this is definitely one of the best ways to just simply relax.
I left from my float feeling amazing. Spent some time with hubby on his lunch and I've been home since working on this blog.. just mellow and my body feels better than it has in days. I am grateful to have this now in my city. I am so excited to now be an advocate for the benefits of floating...

Take some time for you, grab a float in whatever city you are in. Your mind AND your body will thank you!

Hello March...

Just thought I should jump on and write an update blog..



We moved into a new apartment in December and things have been a little hectic since. We absolutely LOVE the community and we know the new company is doing amazing things to improve the property but due to our apartment being an older one and on the bottom floor, there have been some issues.. I won't get into things in depth but we're looking for them to relocate our apartment as I write this so hopefully it all improves soon. That being said we have been crazy busy and dealing with a lot as a result, including having to stay in a hotel briefly.

The best news from the last few months- Kaliyah is done with physical therapy! She broke her neck in May 2018 and finished up with her PT in February 2019. She pushes herself so hard, goes to the gym on her own and has really shown some amazing growth, even starting her own YouTube channel! It's so funny to watch your kids do things and see little pieces of yourself in it. Pl…

Gluten & Allergen Free Wellness Event

My whole life changed (for maybe the billionth time) on November 3, 2017.

I had watched my son graduate from his Army AIT training the day before and traveled back from SC only to wake up with my entire face so swollen it looked as though I could burst at any moment.. the pain was real. I had done some blood work at the docs a few weeks earlier and we had not gotten the results so my husband drove me straight to the doc that day to demand some answers. I was told a few tests needed to be redone but the one thing she knew for sure is no more gluten... I blogged about it here. Before you ask, no I have not found out if it's Celiac, Lupus or anything else, even though the doctor seemed concerned about Celiac. Insurance issues. Yay life...
The last year has been a huge journey. Figuring out that EVERY little thing matters. Cross-contamination is real (if you don't change your gloves I will have a reaction), almost everything has gluten in it from shampoo to sausage and you often f…

Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Coverage #VoxBox

*This is a sponsored blog from Garnier Nutrisse and Influenster as I received this product to test for free

So recently I was selected to receive a new #VoxBox from Influenster of a beautiful light brown (#630 Toffee Nut) hair dye from Garnier Nutrisse. I have used this brand a few times in the past so I really had no worries with trying out this new one. I set up my phone and did my first "unboxing" video which was kinda fun and something I think I may do more of.



Inside were:



After mixing them as instructed I kept the dye on for the recommended time of 30 minutes in going from a dark blonde color to this light brown. I must admit I was a little worried the color would properly cover my head as I was applying; the bottle felt so light but I ended up with just a little more than enough and I still applied that to be sure. My hair as you can see is just at my neck length so I imagine if it was longer than shoulder length you'd be better off grabbing two boxes to be sure. …
