Sorry for the short break in posts again…  Life has a way of getting in the way, doesn’t it?  We spent less than one full week in Vancouver before we had to fly down to San Diego for Comic Con this past weekend.  The whole weekend is such a blur.  On Sunday, I said goodbye to Matt as he flew back to Vancouver and I rented a car and drove home for the week.  We were away from Soka for 10 days and honestly we have a hard time being away from her even 1 day…  She’s seriously our child.  Where my mommas of fur babies at?  You know what I’m talking about!

My sweet blogger friend, Mckenna Bleu, came up and spent the beginning of this week with me in LA.  I just love having her around.  We did a little shopping, pigged out on some good food and girl talked for hours.  I tried my best to get her to stay longer with me this week, but she had to head home yesterday.  Next time I’ll beg harder.  There’s nothing better than some girl time!

Now I’m home in LA.  Dorothy wasn’t kidding…  No place is better than h.o.m.e.  I love sleeping in my own bed.  Matt comes home this weekend for another crazy jam-packed weekend.  I’m just soaking up every minute I have in LA before I have to head back up north again.  All in all, I’m just plum wore out, as Mawmaw would say.  I need to take a day to myself and do nothing at all, but ain’t nobody got time for that!  I have so many projects I want to work on in our house, so I can’t sit still long enough to even write this post in one sitting.

What is your favorite way to unwind when the world is going about a million miles a minute all around you?  I love to get a facial or massage usually, but I’d love to hear other relaxation tips!

Let’s chat about this look for one quick second…  I still have several posts leftover from my time in Florida, including this one.  I’m such a pom pom and tassel fiend.  If it has pom poms or tassels, I’m in.  I really enjoy the feminine detail that it adds.  I was so excited about this cute top I found and even more excited when it arrived because it was long enough to be worn as a dress.  The rainbow pom poms are so fun for a date night out at the beach, which is exactly what I wore this for.

When I ordered this top, I figured it would arrive and be totally sheer.  I was so wrong.  The quality is surprisingly good for the $23 price tag. I got this top in the same order as my last post’s romper.  I highly recommend this top if you have a beach vacation on the horizon!

    Angela,
    Free time that is so hard for me to have. Right now I am gearing back for school, wrapping up my master’s in special education and then starting my specialist degree. I am also a mom to a 3 year old and 7 year old and wife.
    My current projects are finishing out our basement to add 700 more square feet to our house, cleaning out every closet in our house , cleaning out the additional 700 square feet in our basement that will still be storage, both my kids bedooms are being updated (pottery barn kids and kohls) as well as their shared bathroom.
    What I do to relax is read my kindle, read your blog, go to the north georgia mountains for a quick trip, berry college (beautiful place. Largest land campus in the world w 30,000 acres untouched ). The Carmichael house in Sweet Home Alabama is actually Martha Berry’s house on Berry’s campus. ..and go with my husband to his conferences (still take grad work).
    Right now I only get about 30 to 45 min on my kindle.

      Oh wow! You’re one busy mama! Reading is also one of my favorite ways to relax, or listening to audio books on Audible. I prefer audio books lately because I can listen to my books while I’m cooking, cleaning, driving, whatever… 🙂

    First off, completely obsessed with your lip color. Buying that now…

    Also, massages are the best! When I get a little stressed out I love going to the gym. I’m not a runner…but a good spin class always puts me in a good mood.

    I hope you find some time to relax! xoxo

    Hi Angela!

    Looking gorgeous as ever! The photos are beautiful! To relax I also love getting massages but I also love to read and go looking for beach glass at the nearest beach (we have a ton on the North Fork of Long Island so it isn’t hard ha!). You definitely need time for yourself. Otherwise, I feel other things that you need to do suffer. It’s important to take that time even if it’s only for a little bit each day. Have a wonderful day!!! <3

      Thanks Michelle! Beach time is so relaxing, isn’t it? It’s my favorite place to go to recharge. 🙂

    My favorite way to work and chill at the same time is to listen to audiobooks. I realized way to late in my life that if you have a library card + the overdrive app you can listen to so many amazing books????????

    So when doing house stuff, or shopping or doing anything that doesn’t require precise attention, I get caught up in stories and sometimes forget I’m doing the boring things ????

    if I’m purely resting I read non-productive books (YA all the way!!)/take naps with my cat child Pippa.

    I hope you get a true break soon. I’ve rested my overdone brain and body this summer and it’s been such a blessing, healing through rest.

    Love ya ❤️

    • Angela Lanter July 30, 2016 at 1:37 AM

      Me too! I love audiobooks! Have you listened to any good ones lately? I’m listening to one by Tamera Alexander right now, but I’m not 100% into it. I’m just pushing through so I can start a new one!

  • Stacy July 28, 2016 at 3:37 PM

    I love your look in this post! The pompoms are so festive. 🙂

    I am a special ed teacher and definitely need to de-stress and de-compress regularly. I try to get a massage each month when I can. Yoga or any type of exercise always seems to relieve any difficult days. I love drinking Yogi tea as each teabag comes with a positive affirmation. Organizing and de-cluttering always help clear my head. I also enjoy reading on my Kindle or watching beauty vlogs to decompress.

    Hope things slow down for you and that you are able to de-stress and take care of YOU.

    Ugh! Stop looking so perfect in your posts, lady! Ha!
    I adore this dress and I adore your makeup, oh and your hair, don’t forget the hair. In fact, can we exchange bodies, I think that would be perfect 😉

    You look beautiful.

    This look is everything! So fun and bright, absolutely in love with it!

    Best way to relax for me is watching movies, it takes time, but it feels more, I don’t know, real than TV shows? Even than the good ones. You have to prepare yourself, you know, pop corn, blankets, tea. It’s like a ritual for me. In fact, all kinds of rituals help to relax, probably because they give you a feeling of stability and safety. Putting makeup on, walking a dog, one of my friends find jogging very relaxing, because he doesn’t think, just runs. Personally I’m not such a big fan of sports to find it relaxing in any way, lol.

    And yeah, sleeping a lot and cuddling with loved ones (people, pets, etc) is always the way to go when you want some relaxation.

    • Angela Lanter July 30, 2016 at 1:40 AM

      Thanks Alexandra!
      I love watching old movies. I always have TCM on my tv. 🙂
      Walking the dog is a great way to relax too!

    Love the pom pom top, the type of top that would make you smile from ear to ear on a lovely sunny day 🙂 Relaxing, I certainly do not do enough, nobody to blame but myself though, working full time as the school of education, postgraduate research manager in the University of Glasgow and also my continuous (part-time) yeh right! 🙂 fitness teacher profession with now 7 regular classes a week and usually do a few cover classes within a month, I have also taught Body Pump twice this week helping out a friend. I do have a few friends who still do sports massage and aromatherapy. I used to do clinical aromatherapy until too much other work committments took over. I recently had overtightness in my left quad, probably due to not stretching enough each day from fitness teaching. So my rolling pin was run over the leg vigourously, oh the pain! ouch 🙂 x

    Tonight, some house chores and then either a relaxing night I think, it has been a busy week at work. A review deadline completed and some visiting academics to meet. Then Saturday is my first Saturday back with a permanent fitness class, yes Spin Fit again Angela, its a wonder I haven’t spun myself off the planet with 5 regular Spin classes a week ha ha 🙂 after the class tomorrow some retail shopping, I really have to search for some more comfortable workwear, I wear trousers and a nice blouse or shirt normally and have the fitness clothes at the ready in my bag for that evening. I will have a nice lunch and shop whilst Chris my fiance does some further joinery/carpenter work at his friend’s house to get it finished, he has fitted a full new bathroom and kitchen and now about to work on extra loft space. Out for dinner on Saturday night, not sure where I have a few favourite restaurants in Glasgow but also a £15 off voucher for one that I regularly go to so maybe to Browns. Sunday more teaching late afternoon, food shopping and an early lunch in the west end hopefully it was be sunny and we can sit out in a garden. Then behold it’s back to work on Monday. Working on our Personal Development Review forms for meetings late August. Have a great weekend 🙂 xxxx
