Happy Monday and Happy August! This month is going to be so hectic for me! It’s so busy with a few trips, my anniversary, my mom’s birthday, a product launch, babies being born ( not mine) and more. 


Anyhoo, let’s get to what is currently going on in my life!




Right now, Atomic Habits. Ya’ll after a month on the waiting list, I finally got to pick up this book from the library this past weekend. I heard about this book on Instagram back in June and I’ve been reading his emails and website while waiting impatiently for this book. Because even though I get things done, I know that I  ALWAYS  need a fresh perspective on building and maintaining good habits.


Stressed. The other day one of my friends asked me what were my goals in August. My answer was immediate: to get through it.  Ya’ll, this entrepreneur life is not for the weak. Every time I think I know what I’m doing, the reality smack me like girrrrl. 

So I’m stressed. While trying not to eat my feelings, and get all the things done. Anyone else?


I think I’m getting my exercise habits under control, but ya’ Sigh. So I’m back on Weight Watchers. I wanted to do low carb, but all that led to was me binging on carbs when I’m stressed. Nawl. I’m an everything in moderation type person, even though I won’t buy cookies for my house cause I have no self-control. So pray for your girl.

I realized the other day, that you guys really don’t know the extent of my Star Wars addiction. Maybe because I don’t share everything on these internets.LOL. In short, I’ve been obsessed since my older brother introduced me to Star Wars in our living room on HBO when I was about 5. I passed on the obsession to our younger brother when he was about the same age. Why do I feel like I need to explain this to you now? Because at the end of the month, I’m headed to a magical place and it has to do with Star Wars and I’m going to literally spam your Instagram and Facebook feed with photos. Stay tuned, you have been warned. 


I finished Stranger Things. I need something new to watch. Suggestions?


All of the photos that are coming in with the August Eyecandy Photo a Day challenge over on Instagram! Did you know I even started a new account that’s just for sharing the best and favorites from the challenge? I’ll be using it for all of my Instagram challenges, so make sure you tag your photos! And follow @theeverydayeyecandyproject

MY BROTHER IS HAVING TWINS IN EXACTLY 7 DAYS!!!!!!!! OMGGGGGGGG!!! I’m so excited to meet these little people who will be my niece and nephew.
