second to last #yogagirlchallenge is today and theme is Something New!

Today was definitely out of the ordinary in it’s entirety. For one thing I ate really different things from my norm and at weird times. Then helped mom shop for a dress about four hours and I don’t remember last time I did that. Shopping is so exhausting. Just being in a mall is something different for me :P  and the crowddd…oh boyyy. I literally took a midday nap I was so drained. 

Later in the day I practiced handstands and could feel something click finally. Makes me feel like success is right around the corner!  

My favorite thing was sitting down and REALLY TRULY looking at this beautiful plant~ elephant ears. It’s my favorite and when the sun was shining through the window on the plant I sat down by it and got a whole different view id never seen before. Suchhh wildddd beauty in the details.

Be kind every single day. Nothing is more attractive than kindness.

Super late night yoga. I found a relaxing thirty minute wind down yoga video on YouTube from Rachel Brathen. It was perfect. Makes me want to get back into actually following some yoga video routines.

day eighteen of #yogagirlchallenge was MOTHER NATURE:)

had a rough start to my day being sick and super fatigued but I amazingly felt 110% better by the end of the day. I think copious amounts of tea/water/green juice and the greatest nap of my life had something to do with it. plus my favorite chocolate ; ) 

after my nap I went outside with my yoga mat and practiced beneath my favorite tree with these two furry friends. we are grateful to have lily pie (on the right) for three whole weeks! 

the freshhh air and gentle practice topped it all off and gave me back my energy. rolling around in the grass barefoot playing with these cuties helped even more ♡

sick. 

I couldn’t even tell you what tea I’m drinking but there’s lemon juice in it so that’s all that matters. Taking this time to catch up with the dharma bums and most likely napnapnap. It’s all good.

happy breeezy saturday!

I took today’s #yogagirlchallenge as a sign to drive out and spend the day with my favorite dude. It was just what I needed. We made some yummy vegan sloppy joes with tempeh for the first time and the post rain weather was just magical for long walks.

What a fine day♡

day 16 》 the altar. #yogagirlchallenge 

I don’t have an “altar” but I think I will do a yoga altar sometime in the future. However I had so much fun looking around my room at all the little things I keep that mean the world to me. Last time I cleaned my room my goal was to really get rid of things I did not need and minimalize to the max so now it’s mostly filled with the essentials like a bed and desk. The decorative things are all special trinkets here and there. There is also a bookshelf because a room is not complete without books :) 

It was fun to revisit all the things that I keep and what they mean to me. Pictured I have an ordinary paper flower given to me about four years ago that I think I’ll hoard for the rest of my days. Anyone makes something personally for me with their own hands and ill keep it forever. This one came with a sweet gesture. (My heart melts everytime I think about it.) Same person gave me the beautiful rock elephant from Leadville, CO. If you know me, you know I am absolutely obsessed with elephants. And then there’s this post card that I don’t even remember how old I was when I found it randomly in my parents photo albums. It was the most beautiful thing I’d seen and I just could not let it go. It is a blank postcard picturing Vrbnik. This is a small town on the island of Krk just off the coast of Croatia. I promised myself next time I go visit family in Croatia,  im stopping there. And I’m bringing this postcard ;) 

So many memories and emotions from these little treasures ♡ my heart is full.

Close your mouth, 
block off your senses,
blunt your sharpness,
untie your knots, 
soften your glare,
settle your dust,
This is the primal identify.

Ahhhhh handstand progress. I was getting pretty frustrated with handstands lately I honestly felt like I was going backwards. Today I was practicing outside while my dad was working by the shed so he was giving me tips…and I kid you not they actually worked! I was so stoked in holding this one I yelled out dad ! Lol SO MUCH EXCITEMENT. handstands are such a challenge for me so it feels good to get some progress.

This goes great for todays #yogagirlchallenge of SWEAT IT OUT. I’ve been on the go and sweatin all day pretty much. Outdoors, in the kitchen cooking up a storm, yoga practice and then some fun handstands.

Hope everyone had a blast today sweating it out in some way or another :)

awesome app I just found out exists, everyone should get it ! It scans barcodes in mere seconds and tells you how likely it is if it’s vegan or vegetarian. super great but you still need to use common sense.
