Go Shopping with Me at Tai Pan Trading!!

SO one of my favorite stores is Tai Pan Trading and it's closing soon (sad face). I'm so sad about this. I decided to shoot this video for certain people who haven't been there that I know would enjoy it! I feel completely gross in the beginning for the gum chewing and I am so sorry about that! I sped up the walking and shopping so it wasn't boring and added banjo music because well it's awesome. ENJOY!!

Run with Me 7/15/12

So didn't sleep at night again. Went out for a drive and took some photos while the sun was rising behind the clouds. Let's just say you're glad there wasn't a video of that. I was joined by a guy in his little pickup truck blaring Eminem, which I'm not a big fan of. It was his old music, like the first stuff he did. It just isn't the music I have in mind while watching the sun rise and having a banana with juice.....anyway, here is a couple photos:

When I got home I had the sporadic idea to go for a run! I haven't ran in a while. Actually, not since my last race. I thought it would be nice to finally get back out there. I started to gather my usual gear and found that my cell phone battery was dead.. darn. Then I thought, well I'll just take the ipod and it will track me with Nike+ that was a bust, too. After I plugged in all my dead devices I was wondering if this meant I shouldn't go out at all. Nah....I went and I couldn't go without bringing something so I grabbed my camera and figured I'd record the adventure. I call it my Naked Run, but didn't title it that on youtube, as I thought people might get the wrong idea.... It wasn't a huge run or anything, just about 4.5miles. Here's the video!

Good Morning Vlog 7/13/12

I couldn't sleep. Not one blink. I was laying in my bed for hours and I just couldn't fall asleep no matter how tired I was. SO I eventually just got out of bed and went outside for a random mini adventure. Here's a vlog and sorry for looking like poop haha =>

Mandala of the Moment

You can read up about mandalas all over the internet, just google it so I won't go into detail. Basically, they're used to connect with yourself or a higher self, they are also used as sort of a therapy or meditation practice. Regardless of how you look at it, I find them fun and relaxing and who doesn't like to color?!? Here's the mandala I colored:

As you can see, I didn't design the mandala I printed it off the internet at You can get and print this design HERE to color yourself! 

Plums & Apricots Oh My!

Still juicing here & lovin' it!! (my boyfriend does, too)
We bought ourselves some plums and apricots this week and tried them out in the juicer. I wanted to try them together, but actually I never did...hmm next time.
The tastes of these fruits are a bit subtle in juice, which can be really nice sometimes if that's what you're after.
SO here's what I tried:

Juice #1
1-2 kale leaves
1-2 carrots
3 apples
2-3 apricots
Juice #2
1 cucumber
2 plums
3 apples
2 kale leaves
2 carrots
Juice #3
3 plums
2 apples
2 carrots
2 kale leaves

Alright, juice number one was a bit too subtle of a taste, it honestly just tasted like apples & kale. Which is a juice I do often, but not worth adding all that extra stuff if I'm not going to taste a difference haha. Juice number two was pretty tasty to me! Plus, it made a ton! Good stuff because my boyfriend likes to steal all my juice when I'm cleaning the juicer or when I'm just not looking (hehe) Juice number three was more on the tart side and I really enjoyed it. We had more apricots and planned on putting them in the third juice, but we ended up eating them and a few went bad (sad face)....BUT we learned our lesson and read how we can make them last a tad longer by storing them in the fridge (guess I should've known, but I'm still learning).

Until next time!! Happy Juicing!!
