Travel Tuesday: There’s Always Time For Cricket

Travel, Travel Tuesday
Travel Tuesday, a game of cricket in an Indian alleyway

Welcome to a new Travel Tuesday! If you travel India, you’ll realize one thing: there is ALWAYS time for cricket! It doesn’t matter where you are, what time it is – although Sunday’s are best, or why you have something else better to do – there’s always time for a game of cricket. Today’s Travel Tuesday image is one I find to be truly beautiful. I love the depth and contrast, the gloomy sky, and the innocence of a back alley…

It's a life detox! 30 Days to clean your life at www.girlvscity.com

It’s never too late to detox your life, and here we are on day 16! We started with internal reflection, we moved into your visual environment, and now we are cleaning out your virtual environment! Yesterday we went through your cell phone and challenged you to clean out your aps. The response on my Facebook Page was phenomenal – so many of you found it to be refreshing and a much needed, but unthought of, change. We are going to continue…

Detox Your Life: Day 15

Challenges, One Month Life Detox
Detox Your Life: Day Fifteen

Are you ready to keep cleaning and minimizing for this month’s Detox Your Life? Today is a fun challenge, and one I highly recommend. Most of us have a smart phone, and that smart phone is loaded down with aps. We may use them, we may not – we may even hoard them. *Raising hand as a digital hoarder* Last week, my phone crashed. I use my phone constantly due to work. I connect with the authors in my publishing…

Detox Your Life Day Ten: Get Undressed

30 Day Detox Your Life  with www.girlvscity.com

We are really going to be working on creating a harmonious environment. When doing this, one thing you will notice is that you start to detach yourself from material possessions. Often times, we put value on physical objects or use physical objects to hold on to memories. This is okay, I’m not saying you shouldn’t do this, but it’s really easy to go overboard! For example, we have a t-shirt that we will probably always keep. It is hands down…

Detox Your Life Day 9

#FeedYourHappy, Challenges, One Month Life Detox
It's time to detox your life! Here's how on Day 9 | www.girlvscity.com

Today I decided that I wanted to celebrate. I wanted to reward myself and do something nice as a pat on the back. Do you know what I did? I went and bought a small chocolate and caramel candy bar. Only later, as I was feeling guilty and decided I needed to add on ten extra minutes of jumping rope, did I have an, “Ah, ha!” moment and COMPLETELY change the course of today’s challenge. To truly detox, we must examine…

Travel Tuesday: The Story Behind The Photos at www.girlvscity.com

It’s been a while since I’ve done a #TravelTuesday story, and they’re one of my favorite parts of my blog! This is one of my favorite photos from my first trip to India in 2011. The girls are having such a good time, enjoying each other, playing, getting some energy out, and they’re just free for a few moments that they’re skipping rope. It looks like bliss, doesn’t it? This photo does not show you a few things: These girls…

How are you doing with your life detox? We are now eight days in, which means you’ve made great progress! Give yourself a pat on the back and some self-love, I am proud of you. For the first seven days, we went through internal detoxing – negative words and thoughts, resulting patterns, why you do this, when you do this, and self-recognition. We talked about the importance of finding quiet time to reflect, and the importance of recognizing when you…

The Detox Challenge: Why I’m detoxing my life

Why I'm doing a #DetoxYourLife challenge | www.girlvscity.com

Yesterday, I promised that I would tell you why I’m detoxing my life. This admission is something that will strengthen my personal challenge this month, but it is also something I am dreading. It is not only personal, but it’s emotional and has impacted many areas of my life. I planned to do this as a vlog, but I find myself sitting here with a raging migraine, swollen puffy eyes, and this is not how I want to introduce myself…
