This past week and a half has been…well kinda crazy. As you can imagine, since I got back from Grenada, I’ve been playing the game of catch up, and it feels like I need a vacay from my workcation 🙂
To add to it all, A LOT has been going on in the world, from the earthquake in Nepal to the sadness in Baltimore, social media has been a crazy place.
Like I do often, last Sunday I unplugged and took some time for take care of me. Well, this “self care” has continued throughout this week because I feel like my mind and body need it. What have I been doing? Here are 4 Simple Ways To Take Care Of You

2) TALK A STROLL
I like to go strolling in the mall 🙂 It doubles as an easy way to get some exercise and clear my head, while getting in a little retail therapy 🙂 I’m pretty disciplined, so going into the mall isn’t going to cause me to do too much impulse shopping.

Yesterday I headed to LUSH Cosmetics where I picked up their Brazened Honey Mask and a few samples of new items, I hadn’t tried before. My skin has been acting extra crazy lately, so I’ll update you on how the mask works, because it comes highly recommended by my friend Julian.
3) EAT BETTER / WELL
I do a pretty good job at eating well, but there is always room for improvement. This week I’ve been making an extra effort to eat clean, and having my smoothies is a big part of that.
Curl up with a good book, relax and enjoy the moment. Looking for recommendations? My friend Siobhan of BeFree Project has list of 5 Books That Will Change Your Life.
