This week has been nothing short of a giant contrast. It's been full of celebration including Sex and the City's 20th Anniversary. I've always been convinced Carrie Bradshaw and I are the same person. SATC always brings a smile to my face remembering the movie premiere when Christy had too many cosmos and threw up in her friend's popcorn bucket. In the total opposite direction, many of us have been experiencing major internal battles this week which is seemingly reflected by our loss of both icon, Kate Spade and Celebrity Chef, Anthony Bourdain.

Many of my dreams have taken form this week (Squee!), but my excitement hasn't been without moments of panic. Old worries about being disappointed surfaced. My morning started off with pure anxiety. I wanted to protect myself from feeling let down by not engaging in my hopes. I refocused that nervous energy on my run this morning by sprinting hills. Now this sounds like, and was, a terrible idea but there at the top of a hill I've never been on I noticed a "Grace Blvd" street sign. I took a deep breath, smiled, and remembered the Universe always has my back (and yours). Allow yourself to hope. Allow yourself to celebrate. Trust in amazing opportunities that are on their way. And redirect worry, to grace. This week's Friday Favorite's are all things that bring me joy.

This week's June 8, 2018 recommendations.
1. My current obsession. If you've sat down and chatted with me, I've probably recommended hypnosis. Because it's magic and you can change your brain while you sleep. Who doesn't want to skip the work and just feel awesome? I stumbled upon this FREE Healing with Heart Energy by Trigram Healing while at a very intense dental appointment last Saturday. I've listened every night before bed. Here's why I'm obsessed: I'm out like a light, wake up not only in a fantastic mood, but with SO MUCH energy.
2. Apps to live by. I love to cook. I'm not implying I'm good at it, but I still love it. I love recipes off Pinterest, but I'm admittedly a poorly organized Pinterest user. I recently stumbled upon an app called Copy Me That. This brilliant app is an all in one recipe holder, meal planner, AND shopping list. It takes all of your recipes even from pinterest and organizes them for you. Oh, and it's FREE! You're welcome.
3. A Perfect Summer Read. Warning: This title will get you stares shall you dare read it in public. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson, is not only entertaining but helps you really assess what's important in your life. You're only allotted a certain amount of fucks, where are yours going? Check out my full review on this book here.
4. I'm going to Iceland. People often ask me how I travel so much. I have and always will make travel a priority, but I find affordable options like using Airbnb and Groupon. If you haven't stumbled upon Groupons incredible air-inclusive travel deals or are skeptical, I've yet to have a bad experience. Once booked, you're connected with an actual travel agency to book any additional details and ask any questions you might have. I had the most wonderful experience in Mexico last year, and I just booked a $499 trip to Iceland for October that includes flight AND hotel for 5 days. Stop procrastinating or making excuses and go see the world!
