Quest for Fire

I am always on some sort of mission it seems. Maybe it’s the Virgo in me — but I always have a mental list of things to work on/do/find (like eating better, being conscious, being kind, finding the perfect pair of jeans or boots). It never ends. In the eating better department, I found the perfect protein bar. It’s called the Quest bar – I highly recommend them (especially if you pop them in the microwave for 10 seconds, they are like brownies!) Please remove the wrapper first friends!


Being passionate about life makes it so much more exciting. Why not give it a try?

Another area on my mind lately is meditation. For some reason I have not yet fully incorporated this into my life, even though I know it will be amazing. Yes, it’s on the list.


I love finding easy recipes, especially when they only take about 15 minutes. The Yankee Kitchen Ninja has so many great ideas – I have made the chocolate, peanut butter cheerio bars several times. Yum.


Be good to each other!


Time Warp

I don’t know exactly why I haven’t blogged for so long. My focus shifted — to say the least. I can also be fickle (understatement!). Here is what I am loving this second.

Coconut anything. The water, the scent, the oil (for cooking instead of olive oil — try it — it is amazing.) Reminds me of summer and Hawaii.

Coconut whipped cream. Thank you Oh Lady Cakes.

Memes on signs are still great. Thoughtful art – love companies like Help Ink who donate proceeds to different causes.


Just got back from AZ, where my 7-year-old nephew and his friends had the best time busting open a tiki pinata. Everyone should have their own mini pinata. Thank you Oh Happy Day!

It doesn’t matter what I am into one day and not into the next, the one constant is that every single day I am grateful.
