First Day of Spring 2019

Me today.
Today is officially the first day of Spring. It is hard to believe, as it seems like only yesterday we walked into Winter. Today is also Norooz, the Persian New Year. Is it bad to say that all I can think about is sleeping, eating and gardening? Perhaps, this is just Spring's effect on me considering I have been busy working 9-to-5, Monday through Friday for the last four years. 

I just looked outside and there isn't an inch of snow on the ground. Not even a fraction of an inch. It is sunny and beautiful outside. Not hot at all and definitely not too cold. Although flowers aren't really blooming, my chocolate mint bush seems to be making an appearance. I'm also noticing the tulips in my yard, but everything else seems to be non existent at this point. 

Time is virtuous, as time is relative but it flies by so fast. Sometimes I wonder if I can get everything I want to done in a 24 hour period. Perhaps I am persistent or impatient, but either way I am content with the way my life is going. Nothing bad has happened yet this year and I am hoping and praying it stays this way.

I want to also share that I just took the selfie I am sharing with this blog post using my LuMee case I got for Christmas. I now own 5 of these cases. They are the best especially for taking pictures up close. If you don't own one, you need one. As much as I love the factory camera that comes with my iPhone, this case will enhance your photos naturally. You don't have to edit them, as it naturally edits them. I love it. 

After work, I have to make a quick trip to Whole Foods to buy some Gardein Mini Crabless Cakes. I also want to pick up somethings to make homemade vodka tomato sauce. I have been finding myself in the kitchen at home a lot more lately, as I don't find any urge to eat out anymore. I just enjoy the comfort of not having to travel let alone spend a fortune for something I can make as good, if not better at home. Know what I mean?

Well, I am going to make a smoothie, talk to Sumit for a few and then, go to work. Have a wonderful day everyone!

First Day of Summer 2018

It is officially the first day of Summer. I woke up in a relatively great mood. The weather is incredible, as it is not too hot or cold. Although the humidity prevents it from being pristine, I would say the environment is close to it for the first day of the hottest season. I am going to leave for work shortly, but want to make a smoothie before I go. I am thinking banana and dates with perhaps some chocolate almond milk? I like to add some coconut sugar for good measure. I don't know what it is with me and coconut sugar, as I seem to really be loving and appreciating it. 

And speaking of coconut sugar, I do have to go grocery shopping after work today. I really love the fruit and vegetable stands here in Idaho. Everything is modestly fresh and organic. The prices are exceptionally good. I have lived all over yet I find myself appreciating this. One thing about Idaho that I find fascinating is the fact that it is hotter in the evening than the late morning/early afternoon. I think it is the only state I have ever been in that is like this. Perhaps this is why so many grow crops (potatoes and onions more than anything else) here.

For work today, I am wearing a simple mustard, gold colored v-neck shirt with a black belt and black pencil skirt. The shirt (which is visible) is from J.Crew. As you can kind of tell in my selfie today. The skirt is from BCBGMaxAzria (which is non-visible from the selfie) and the belt I bought from Forever 21

In terms of beauty products, I am very much obsessed with the Giorgio Armani Beauty Armani Prima Glow-On Moisturizing Face Balm, LORAC POREfection Foundation, By Terry Paris Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadow Pen in Bronze Moon (No. 4), Benefit Cosmetics goof proof eyebrow pencil, and Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick in Libra. I love more things, but I only have a few minutes. I want to also add that I am currently obsessed with the Goutal Paris Rose Pompon Parfum. I own an array of perfumes yet I find myself reaching for this one the most. The fragrance is one of the best things you will ever smell in your life. I'll create a beauty favorites and share what I love for the month. 

Anyways, I am off. Off to work that is. Have a wonderful day!

Just got home from a long day

I just got home from a very long day. All work and no play. It is Wednesday yet feels like a Thursday and I have to wait two days for it to be Friday. I know I haven't been posting much on this blog, as I have been busy beyond belief with my life, but I promise you will hear from me sporadically until I have more time. So much has happened in my life and although I have so much I want to say, it would probably take forever to cover everything.

As many of you already know, I live in Idaho (Meridian) and have been here for several years now. Not only do I have family that lives nearby, but I felt an immediate connection when I first visited hence why I decided to pack my bags from Bozeman and make the 10+ hour move via drive. Idaho is quite possibly the most underrated state, as it embodies an organic ardor of fields. Some areas are flatter than others, but everywhere you look you see endless fruits and vegetables growing.

What really caught my attention aside from the potato fields were the endless fields of onions and how the scent of onion managed to penetrate through the air, making an entire area within a 30 mile radius smell like fresh onion rings. Needless to say, the smell use to bother me when I first moved here, but now I appreciate it more than ever. And every time you travel through this glorious state you are met with many wonderful Spanish speaking people who sell fresh, organic produce right from their rust fruit stands.

When I first moved here, I felt motivated to grow things. Everything from herbs to vegetables to fruits to flowers to even grass and more. And it is because of living here in Idaho I have garnered a huge love and appreciation for gardening. Time is virtuous and I feel like time is never wasted when growing something. With Earth Day just around the corner, I feel compelled to put some of the wonderful things into the ground. After all, the earth is filled with life.  
Today I am incredibly exhausted and just want to have a nice shower, eat a nice dinner and dive into my bed freely without any thought of anything. I thought about binge watching Breaking Bad reruns, but I am just way too tired this evening and can only think about sleep. Have you ever had a day where all you wanted to do was just sleep? That's how I feel today. And besides, tomorrow is a brand new day.
