Current Home Workout Routine | DIY Yoga Mat Spray Recipe

21 Day Fix | www.kristenwoolsey.com

I've been a home workout enthusiast for years now! Maybe it's because I'm pretty self motivated, but I actually prefer it over the gym. I know a lot of people are working out from home right now, even if it's against their choice. Here is a peak into my current home workout:

Recent Reads #7




1 Star = Hated It -  2 Stars = Didn't Like It - 3 Stars =Liked It -
 4 Stars = Really Liked It - 5 Stars = Loved it



Plot: From Goodreads: Wanted: Midwife/nurse practitioner in Virgin River, population six hundred. Make a difference against a backdrop of towering California redwoods and crystal clear rivers. Rent-free cabin included. When the recently widowed Melinda Monroe sees this ad, she quickly decides that the remote mountain town of Virgin River might be the perfect place to escape her heartache, and to reenergize the nursing career she loves. But her high hopes are dashed within an hour of arriving—the cabin is a dump, the roads are treacherous and the local doctor wants nothing to do with her. Realizing she’s made a huge mistake, Mel decides to leave town the following morning. But a tiny baby abandoned on a front porch changes her plans…
What I Liked: I read this because my mom had watched the Netflix series and recommended it. It's very Hallmark movie and super easy to get into. FYI the show and the book are very different.
What I Didn't Like: I can't really remember anything specifically I didn't like about this, but I will say it's pretty cheesy.
Rating: 5 Stars

Life Lately #9

I took this photo at Lowes the other day, isn't it gorgeous?
Watching
Truthfully, not a lot. On the days when I watch a lot of tv, I don't end up feeling great about the way I spent the day. We have been watching a movie in the evenings though, even though I usually fall asleep. I finally watched Little Women, and it was good, just a little slow. And, we actually watched the newer Jumanji movie recently and we were dying laughing. Definitely missed that when it came out. If you haven't seen it yet, watch Yesterday. It's so cute and the music is awesome!

Recent Clothing Buys

This isn't a fashion blog, by any means, but I do love sharing my favorite things with you! At the start of the spring season I bought a few pieces, but since then I have really cut back on any extra spending. You'll have to let me know in the comments below what your online shopping has looked like lately! Are you doing a lot of online shopping, or are you being extra careful right now?

Don't forget to use Rakuten for cash back on all your online orders!

Without further ado, here are a few clothing items I've bought and loved recently! It's a bit of a variety...

I originally bought these two dresses because I had 3 events I needed dresses for, and since then they've been cancelled. Oh well! I am still thrilled with both patterns! Especially the snakeskin print...it's very different than anything I own. And obviously, I love the navy. This dress is very light and comfortable. Very easy to wear, and I know I will get a lot of wear out of them in the future.

Day In The Life During A Pandemic


7am - Don't even need to set an alarm each night, but my body still wakes me up at 7 even when I can sleep in! The first thing I do, besides brush my teeth and go to the bathroom, is take the pugs out. They are always thrilled when I'm up for the day, because it means breakfast! I make them go outside to do their business first though. This morning, however I immediately freaked because in our side yard was an Opossum. Super common animal here, but not in the day time, and certainly not something I want Winston running after.

Cricut Creations No. 3

With all of the extra time on my hands, you'd think I would be Cricut-ing up a storm! Honestly, I haven't had much drive to create so far. But, I have made a few things over the last few weeks I thought I'd share! 

First up, shirts for my niece and nephews! I had quite a surplus of glitter vinyl, so Gia totally hit the jackpot with some cute stuff. I want her baby yoda pjs so badly!

My Current Skin Care Routine | Rooted Beauty Review

(This post is not sponsored, but Grove Collaborative did send me some of these items for free in exchange for reviews on their website)
Rooted Beauty Skin Care Review | www.kristenwoolsey.com

I shared my natural DIY skin care routine over 2 years ago! I loved that routine, and absolutely still stand by those recipes. After awhile, though, it's just nice to change things up! Grove Collaborative sent me a couple of their Rooted Beauty products when they launched the line last fall, and I fell in love with them! I ended up buying almost everything else in the product line up. I've been using this system since November, and I just love how my skin has been looking.

Scenes from Sedona & The Hoover Dam | Days Five and Six

Sedona
At this point in our adventure, we were getting pretty tired. Sedona was the perfect way to break up all the hiking we'd be doing. When we arrived, we really enjoyed walking around the downtown area, popping in and out of shops. There are a lot of unique shops in Sedona! 

We really enjoyed this seperate artisan area. It felt like another country! We loved checking out a vintage record store, and enjoyed a whiskey tasting.
