Pardon my disappearance around here for the last week, as I took a little break from the blog. Work has been a bit hectic lately and I needed to take some time after long days in the office to just come home and bing-watch something mindless in the evenings to unwind (you feel me, right?).
But, I’m back…and just in time for one of my favorite months. I love this transitional period when we begin to go from spring to summer—the colors of the morning sunrise become bolder and the spring flowers get a little brighter. There’s a lot to do and see this month, so let’s get started, shall we?
Go: I have been counting down the days until I leave for the Cayman Islands since I booked the trip two months ago…and we are now two weeks away from departure. It’s been a while since I’ve taken a Caribbean vacation, so to say I’m looking forward to it is an understatement. I purposely kept the itinerary for this trip light—laying out at the beach, lounging poolside, and riding horseback on the beach—are pretty much the only things on the Cayman agenda. It also means that I can keep packing light, too. Next week, I’ll be sharing on the blog what I plan to bring along on the trip.
Do: I have wanted to enroll in the Health Coach Training Program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition for the longest time. And, guess what? I finally did it! I am starting classes on May 13th and will share more about why I decided to start the program in a post next Monday. I am honestly so excited about this next chapter!
See: While I may have missed the 19th Annual Tulip Festival at Heckscher Park (thanks to the rain), I always love seeing the thousands of beautiful tulips that are blooming in the park right now. Should this rainy weather clear up in the next few days, this activity is definitely on my agenda…and is also the perfect excuse to dust off the Nikon DSLR.
Try: If you’ve ever wanted to try acupuncture, learn more about Chinese medicine, or love the Ghost Flower brand as much as I do, you’ll want to register ASAP for this event! I’m so bummed that I can’t attend the Five Elements Workshops and Restorative Acupuncture event that Ghost Flower is hosting on Wednesday, May 8th from 7-9 pm at Domino in New York City, but if you are local and interested in learning more about how to activate the specific meridian energy pathways that relate to each Element and how to find acupressure points in your body to help your energy flow, register to attend now.
Buy: Seed Phytonutrients, a natural beauty brand, recently sent me their moisturizing shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in treatment to try. I used the shampoo and conditioner for the first time the other night and my hair looked, felt, and smelled AMAZING. I am so impressed with this brand already after using their products only once so far. I love their environmentally friendly packaging and their commitment to supporting organic farmers and environmental sustainability. I’ll be sharing a full review on the blog soon, so stay tuned!
What’s on your agenda this month?
