Some people have cattle dogs, I have a plant guardian. 🌿🌱😏 #mbgPlantWeek
I submitted this photo my mom took of me for my photography class assignment saying it was a self-portrait (because it kind of is—I mean I adjust all the settings for my mom and set up the shot so she can just press the shutter for me) and it got a better grade than all the photos I’ve submitted that I’ve shot. 😂😂😂
My sun lemonade recipe is up on the blog. Drink this and tell me it isn’t the most refreshing thing you’ve ever tasted. It also involves only two ingredients and water is one of them, so that’s cool.
I discovered swimming after my entire body was worn out from running nearly 10 half marathons in a span of 4 years. It’s funny, I never thought I’d be a swimmer. Something about getting completely wet never appealed to me. Yet here I am, calling swimming my main form of cardio. Now that I’m learning that not all exercise is good for all people (running was NOT right for my body type!), it’s ironic that something in me said, “Micaela, let’s try swimming” before I even knew. Your body knows what it needs if you just tune in and listen. 🏊🏻♀️
One more because I never posted this and this weekend’s hashtag project is too good. 🌹 #whpflowerpower
Was going to get off Instagram for this weekend and Monday, but I lied. I saw Instagram’s Weekend Hashtag Project was all about flowers and had to post my favorite flower house in San Francisco. That’s all. 🌺 K see you on Tuesday. ✌🏻 #whpflowerpower
The look of a girl who just completed her first Instagram Live sharing her skincare routine. 🙃 For those who tuned in, I hope it was in some way helpful! This is the cooling Ayurvedic face mask I referenced from @mountainroseherbs’ blog. In the summer when it’s hot, I’ve been doing it 1-2 times a week. FYI, the peppermint leaves are slightly rough and make the mask kind of clumpy and hard to apply, but it makes your skin feel so soft after! Ingredients: •1/2 tsp organic neem leaf powder •1/2 tsp organic triphala powder •1/2 tsp organic peppermint leaf •organic rose hydrosol Directions: 1. Mix powders and peppermint leaf together in small bowl. 2. Add enough hydrosol to form a soft muddy paste. 3. Apply to face (avoid eyes and areas of sensitivity). 4. Let sit for five minutes. 5. Use lukewarm water to begin removing mask. 6. Rub face gently with a washcloth or bare hands to exfoliate skin and remove mask. 7. Rinse face several times to remove remaining particles.
