A Letter To You

Sitting here thinking about my life the past 5 years. I’ve met so many people, seen so many places and changed in so many ways.

My heart hurts saying goodbye to it all. I know it’s a “see you later” for friends who have become family, but I’ve never been good with change or goodbyes. I’ve never been easy to deal with or to love. I’m so thankful for the tribe I’ve made throughout the states we’ve moved to the past few years. Even though I’ve never thought I belonged, you made me feel like I did.

I wanted to go to my home. Some made up place or state in my head that was apparently somewhere I was happier or would be happy “finally”. I now know it will never be four walls. It’ll be four people or six people or eight people building me up and teaching me to love every piece of life and my body and everything the world has to offer.

I never loved Maine or New England but I love every single member of my tribe who kept me afloat when I was busy fighting myself.

Last but not least, thank you to my amazing husband who wings never falter, not even once. You keep and have kept me up when I didn’t know how to pick myself up time and time again even when sometimes I didn’t deserve it. Thanks for teaching me every inch of my body is perfect in its own way and that sometimes its okay to not be okay.

Next Chapter

I’ve been trying for weeks to come up with something better than the last and better than what’s flying around in my mind. I have had so much go on here lately. I drove to Charleston SC and found a home to buy with such a amazing realtor who happens to be one of my best friends. She has a Facebook page where she live videos and chats about her life and opening up about mental illness and how you can live your best life with it! Go check her out at her Facebook Holly_tastic page. I’ve loved seeing her actually open up! It’s a great watch! Love her to pieces! I can’t imagine this next chapter that is opening in my life going any other way with my little family as well!

Also I want to start doing a few more things with A Hint of Koko! Thinking of Vlogging once a month with you guys on my YouTube channel and also integrating my new olive oil vegan based soap line!

So many exciting things happening around here. Please let us know if you’re interested and also maybe throw some comments of scents you want me to incorporate into my new soap line! Much love guys!

Bubble Bars 101

I have been starting my soap business from home. Practicing what products I’ll be releasing has been hard. I have so many ideas, this will definitely take a minute but here is one I’ve been thinking of sharing with you guys.

Lavender Infused Bubble Bar

P.S- All my products are vegan and never tested on animals or any fur creatures of any kind.

These bubble bars, create a bubble bath infused with with rich oils and lavender. On top of that are created with such good products that are most products I use are even edible! Not that you’d wanna eat these! Create a colored relaxing bath with these. My friends who have tried these are obsessed and already asking me to make more. I’m happy with the results.

Nerium

So one of my bestfriends started selling a skin product called Nerium. I decided why not, I am all about

  • Vegan
  • No Animal Testing
  • GlutenFree

products! So I decided since it’s so hard to find good skin care to try it. I can say after waking up this morning with such a soft complexion and face. I gotta buy this stuff. The best part is I get to help a friend and it’s so amazing because I genuinely like the product. (Was nervous I wouldn’t). So yes, I am a happy camper. If you wanna try a amazing new skin care regimen that is so worth it. I’m so serious, I’ve been looking for something since it seems like forever. Leave a response! I can give you her information! I am becoming obsessed with this stuff!

Moving,Working & Screaming

So August is a huge and busy month for us. We move to Maine! I absolutely love my new house waiting for me there! It's right next to Portsmouth New Hampshire, I can walk! We all know how much moving costs and stresses. It has driven me up a wall. I also start a new job tomorrow.. Working from home nonetheless which is scary for me. It's something new that I've never done.

Closing a chapter of my life here in Connecticut and moving is such a big deal for me as my anxiety kicks in full force. I've been lagging on blog posts but have had so much to say to you guys! I'll be blogging more very soon. Trying to adjust and move at the end of this month. I'm ready for September!

On that note, I've been ready to scream from all the stress. I am so proud though, I've kept going and I've kept my head up through all the rough rides life has to offer to get me to where I am now.

Learn to let go.

Today, I’ve been thinking and looking back at the past week. I was able to see my cousins who I missed so much! So happy to spend time with them when I get to. Finally got a starting date on my new job with Allstate! Which I’ll be working from home which is a whole new ball game for me and I couldn’t be more excited. I move in less than 34 days. I’ve been cleaning and cleaning and packing and more packing. I honestly never knew how many things I actually had! Back to my title, learn to let go.

Looking back at the past few months while starting my blog, I have been posting weekly. Sometimes daily, I’ve been trying so hard to keep new content up for you guys. My life has been chaotic and finally getting a second to breathe and put out a entry feels amazing. The past 3 months, I have had to LEARN to let go so many different things and obstacles that were out of my hands. Whether it was a toxic situation or things and certain situations that don’t make ME happy. Trying to stay away from high anxiety situations which for anybody who has anxiety knows that’s basically impossible. I’ve now been trying to many different things and options and care more about ME. I always do whatever I can to make the other person happy in whatever situation I am in, and I now have started remembering that I am important, and I deserve not to be put down or put in a situation I don’t wanna be in. Finally learning to just leave and let go of anything that I have to think more than 3 seconds on whether its good or bad for me. One of my friends tells me constantly that I need to not think twice about a bad situation and question whether it makes me happy or not. I am blessed for the good people and situations I’ve been put in to get me where I am today. I am blessed. Letting go of bad situations and negative thoughts and people who only put me down. xoxo
