The Goods

This week has been one of celebration, relaxation and reflection. Tomorrow I enter into my 37th year of life and what better time to check in with yourself then on your birthday? If that’s not The Goods, than I don’t know what is.

I’ve decided to gift myself a check up this year. I’m going in for my first physical in over 5 years next week. I don’t really go to the doctor but…. but… but, but why not?

I spent last weekend at this spa. Can you say heavenly? The best birthday present a girl could give to herself.

I did a pretty intense workshop with an energy healer and I’m still trying to wrap my brain and emotions around it. I might share about it later. I might not. Sitting with it for now.

The Last Chinese Chef | #goodreads

I just finished the best book I’ve read in ages. Romance, mystery and a history lesson in Chinese cuisine. It’s a must read.

Spending last weekend in the sun, I realized it’s time to stock up on sunblock. Do you have a favorite? I dig this one. Organic, it smells good and goes on transparent. #triplescore

Sweet Potato and Chorizo Hand Pies |

I shared these Sweet Potato and Chorizo Hand Pies on Monday. So damn good and my #mustmake for the week.

I’ve been threatening to start the 21-day Sugar Detox for over a month. It’s finally happening on Monday. But only after I shove birthday cake in my face all weekend.

You can find me here on the 22nd at 2:00 pm. #BELIEVE #RSL

I can always justify a new tennis skirt and I’m a sucker for the blue.

OMG. I found gray. Cover up + multitasking for the win.

For the stuntman: I’m not making my own cake this year so that means you need to order one stat.
