#podcastofthemonth - The Self Love Fix

Tuesday, June 14, 2022

I have been on a podcast kick lateley and I’ve been searching for a podcast to help with dealing with self doubt and self love so I found the the self love fix podcast. Every episode I’ve listened to so far from Beatrice has been what I needed to hear. I appreciate this podcast so much and recommend listening, especially when you feel alone or not good enough.

"Welcome to The Self Love Fix Podcast. I’m your host, Beatrice -an embodiment coach, teacher, and mentor, and founder of The Self Love Over Codependency Program.

Are you ready to finally step into your worthiness and magnetism? Are you tired of your limiting beliefs and self-doubt affecting every aspect of your life? You deserve to live an abundant life, you deserve to desire and achieve all of your dreams, and most importantly, you deserve to embody unshakable self-confidence.

Believe it or not, I didn’t always embody self-trust. Most of my life, I lived at the mercy of what other people thought of me. It was only during a very low point I experienced during grad school where I asked myself, “Where does your need for perfectionism come from?”

This was a game-changing moment for me. For the first time in my life, I asked myself about the origins of my behavior instead of blaming myself for them.

From then on, I promised to live out my passion and mission for embodying my true essence and to teach others to do the same.

That’s exactly why I created this podcast. This podcast is all about helping you shift from shame, people-pleasing, codependency, low self-esteem, and self-doubt and into alignment, expansion, and unapologetic self-trust through spirituality and healing the inner-child."

#bookofthemonth - King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo

Tuesday, June 7, 2022

I was looking for a fun and easy series to read on Summer vacation and picked this up. I read few pages and I was hooked, read most of the first book weeks before my holiday even started. The book is firsten for YA and I love the fantasy world so I enjoyed it a lot.

"The dashing young king, Nikolai Lantsov, has always had a gift for the impossible. No one knows what he endured in his country's bloody civil war--and he intends to keep it that way. Now, as enemies gather at his weakened borders, Nikolai must find a way to refill Ravka's coffers, forge new alliances, and stop a rising threat to the once-great Grisha Army.

Yet with every day a dark magic within him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha general, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish the terrible legacy inside him. He will risk everything to save his country and himself. But some secrets aren't meant to stay buried--and some wounds aren't meant to heal."

#bookofthemonth - The Meeting Point by Olivia Lara

Tuesday, May 3, 2022

I picked this up for book club, and first LOVE it. It was captivating and charming but its slowed down at some parts and I was loosing interest. I did read and I would give it a 3.9 out of 5 stars. If you usually like this type of books or if you are in a mood for a light, fluffy contemporary romance, I’d definitely recommend this one

"What if the Lift driver who finds your cheating boyfriend's phone holds the directions to true love?
'Who are you and why do you have my boyfriend's phone?'
'He left it in my car. You must be the blonde in the red dress? I'm the Lift driver who dropped you two off earlier.'

And with these words, the life of the brunette and t-shirt wearing Maya Maas is turned upside down. Having planned to surprise her boyfriend, she finds herself single and stranded in an unknown city on her birthday.

So when the mystery driver rescues Maya with the suggestion that she cheers herself up at a nearby beach town, she jumps at the chance to get things back on track. She wasn't expecting a personalised itinerary or the easy companionship that comes from opening up to a stranger via text, let alone the possibility it might grow into something more..."

There's no need to use jarred garlic when you have a garlic press at your disposal.

A spiralizer is a kitchen gadget that allows you to turn vegetables into noodles. This is a great way to get your daily veggies while also enjoying a delicious, drunken noodles recipe. A
ll you need to do is insert the vegetable of your choice into the spiralizer and twist! In seconds, you'll have perfectly spiralized noodles ready to be cooked.

If you're trying to eat healthier, then a spiralizer is a great tool to have in your kitchen. With this gadget, you can make veggie-packed dishes that are low in calories but high in flavor. You can also use a spiralizer to make zucchini noodles, which are commonly known as "zoodles."

3) A Food Processor:

A food processor is a versatile kitchen gadget that can be used for various tasks. You can quickly chop, slice, and dice vegetables with this tool. You can also use it to make sauces, dips, and spreads. If you're looking for a time-saving appliance, then a food processor is worth considering.

One of the great things about owning a food processor is making your baby food at home. Simply puree some fruits or vegetables, and voila! You've got healthy, homemade baby food free of preservatives and other additives. Plus, it's much cheaper than buying store-bought baby food.

4) A Slow Cooker:

A slow cooker is a kitchen appliance that can cook food for longer. This is a great way to make hearty, comfort foods like stews and soups. Simply add all of your ingredients into the slow cooker and let it do its job!

One of the best things about slow cookers is that they're very low-maintenance. Once you've added your ingredients, you can simply set it and forget it.
