Monday Musings

Happy Monday, my lovelies! I am kicking off this week with 1) some positive words of encouragement [I'll call it my Monday Mantra], and 2) with some things I am loving right now ...


Starting today, I'm going to be working on myself a lot more ... and yes, I am a project! We're all a project :) I'm starting a new clean eating and exercise plan, and hope to share more details about it with y'all as I ease into things. Stay tuned!

In other news ... 
I am almost out of my first tube of bareMinerals Complexion Rescue, so I really need a refill. I've been using it for over a month now, and it's really changed my skin. Especially in the winter time, my skin is usually dry, irritated, red and flaky. Now that I've been using this stuff, it feels dewy and fresh all the time. It's amazing. 
Totally obsessed with these tortoise frames from Warby Parker right now ... and their new Basso collection, too. 
Over the weekend, I visited a small goat farm up in the Hudson Valley, and had the most amazing tour of their grounds. And then we got to go inside and play with the goats, including the babies (or kids as they are called). Baby goats are ADORABLE. Afterward, we got to sample their fresh goats milk and goat cheeses, including one that was flavored with fig and honey. It was amazing. 
I am REALLY curious to try this 'Baby Foot' stuff ... has anyone used it? 
I've decided that, now that it's March, I am officially switching over to my spring scarf, even if it's still cold outside. I really need some cheery spring colors to incorporate into my wardrobe.

How about you guys ... what's everyone up to this week? How was your weekend?
