If you watched my stories recently, you saw that I am undergoing a lot of medical testing the next few weeks. I have been feeling off the past few months and have put this off for so long. Just trying to get to the route of some health things that have been slowing me down and keeping me from the things and people I love. I will be focussing on self -love, care and rest over the next month. Sometimes, you just need to take a step back from everything, breathe and rest your soul. Florida was relaxing and I felt rejuvenated, but there is nothing like home sweet home. So many of you shared with me your favorite brands for all things cozy. I ordered a bunch of stuff and it came the next day! I already have on my new joggers and I am OBSESSED. If I can’t go out and enjoy the outdoors, than I want to look cute and cozy at home. They say when you look good, you feel good. I LIVE by this motto.
Self Care Tips
Something that has been helping to ease my mind and keep me calm is Magnesium CALM powder. I like to do this two to four times a day in just hot water. I find that nighttime is the best time to drink this. It definitely makes me sleepy. (Warning, it can upset your tummy…so take with caution lol.)
Meditate- This is something I NEED to do for myself every morning and evening. Whenever I begin to feel anxious. I turn on the “Simply Meditate ” App, sip some magnesium water and take deep breaths.
Cryotherapy- No joke, this has SAVED, healed and changed my soul. Cryotherapy works from the inside out and helps reduce inflammation. If you want to learn more on cryotherapy, click here.
Applying heat to my back or shoulders to reduce stress. I LOVE doing this before bed. Not only does this help relax and reduce stress/inflammation it calms me down. I LOVE doing this for 15 minutes.
Salt Cave- Breathing in Himalayan salt has been proven to shorten the duration of colds, viruses, bronchitis, and upper respiratory infections. This in the past has completely taken me off my asthma inhalers. I like to sit in the salt cave for 30 minutes to an hour. If I am ill I will go 3-5 times a week until I feel relief. I HIGHLY recommend this if you struggle with asthma or any upper respiratory disease. You can also pour Himalayan salt on your food to help open your airways. I always find mine at Marshall’s for less.
CBD oil- This is something I just started…so I will get back to you with results. I have struggled with severe Asthma and anxiety and willing to try anything. CBD is proven to reduce inflammation and infection. (Planning to do an entire post on anxiety soon)
Reading/Journaling while taking a Bath- This is SO relaxing and perfect for a night in. Take the time to REST, HEAL and RELAX!
Vitamin D and B12 Complex- Vitamin D is NEEDED to boost immunity, energy and brain function. I have suffered from low vitamin D for years. I add 10,000 to my water everyday to get enough. As for the Vitamin B12, this helps calm your nervous central system down.
I hope this was helpful, as always- I am not a doctor or nutritionist. This is MY advice and personal suggestions. Stay happy, healthy and rested in the New Year.
My Current Favorite Cozy Things
Happy Monday! I am so excited to share my family’s Palm Beach House tour video with you all! We moved in about five years ago and visit every few months and stay for weeks at a time. We LOVE it here and love our community. I am so excited to head back in the Spring again. I have promised you guys this entire week; for the house tour. It took me a while to do it, because I hurt my back very badly. This is a fast version because we were packing up to head to the airport. I wanted to spend as much time outside as I could; soaking up all the sun. I’m sharing photos of the inside and outside of our second home. MY favorite spot, is the Tiki Bar/hut. It’s my favorite when we play games at night and watch tv under the stars. Can’t wait for you to see and exclusive look at our little getaway place.
Here’s a closer look at the house! Added a photo gallery with some shots.

For those of you who have been following me from the beginning, know that I do not drink alcohol. Give me all the sugar and hot chocolate LOL! There are so many cute ways to style a bar cart, booze free. You will see Bar carts everywhere and they are quickly becoming the latest home decor trend. I recently added one in our bedroom, to give the space more of a trendy, chic vibe. I was originally going to use it as a nightstand, but now use it for my holiday decor area.
This circular bar cart is SO trendy and priced very reasonably. To be honest, when I googled “bar carts”, this was one of the first pieces that came up. I IMMEDIATELY fell in LOVE. I think the rustic gold and circular design gives it a cute vintage vibe. I plan on changing the decor each month to correspond with the current holiday season. Right now, it is decorated for Halloween/Thanksgiving. This “Fall inspired” bar cart will give you all of the fall, cozy vibes. Call me basic, but this is pumpkin spice and everything nice!
