Shopping Time! (Palazzo Pants)

Thank you Coco Chanel for giving us freedom of movement! Palazzo pants are back in style this spring. Palazzo pants have periodically been reintroduced into fashion from the 1930’s famous Hollywood actresses to the Hippie era.

Seize the Moment: In the Morning…

I am way too far from being called “a morning person”. I stick to my routine and get out the door to make it to work on time being almost half awake.

Ahh…This Mud Is Amazing

If you haven’t rolled in mud yet go ahead and do it. Don’t think too much about it. You may be braver than you think. Just let yourself go and have a blast! You will find out that covering yourself in mud is not such a bad idea. It will be messy but it is something that you will always remember. You may even like it. The hippo seems to enjoy it.

If you are looking for some adventure in your life that will bring you as close as possible to the Earth and jumping into a volcano is not an option, take mud baths. It only takes one time to make you want to do it again. Your body will be thanking you. It’s not every day that you can have some good dirty fun with Mother Nature.
