Adulting: Grocery Haul and Why I Love Aldi

I love Aldi.
No, let me repeat that for those who don't know how serious I really am about this love:
I love Aldi!

I drove to the Brooklyn location versus the closer Rego Park location because

  1. I don't like street parking
  2. I'm not paying $3 to park in a parking lot
  3. I do not know how to parallel park
  4. Did I already say how much I hate street parking?
{This box of cereal DID NOT come from Aldi!}

I feel like I got so much stuff and didn't really spend a lot of money. First off, it is super refreshing to be able to put something into my mouth and not realize later that the label says: "Produced with Genetic Engineering". Guess what? Just about everything on a shelf is GMO, even things you think are super healthy.

The drive wasn't too horrible, and I was coming from Long Island, roughly took 30 minutes top. I was chilling and vibing to some tunes in Polly, so the journey didn't bother me. I also planned my trip when I knew traffic wouldn't be too horrible.

I got to the store around 6ish, and spent around 45 minutes inside. There weren't too many customers, and the lines were not horrible. I seriously always enjoy my time in Aldi because I am just blown away by the prices. Now, don't get me wrong, not every single item in the store is priced well, but I know the staples are. I got a box of cereal for $1.19 and it is seriously the best sugary bowl of cereal I have eaten. I drank a cup of hot cocoa without adding sugar! That's a big deal for me, especially when I didn't add any extra sugar to my oatmeal either.

The reason the store can keep their prices rather low is because they sell their own brand of products, and for a shiny quarter you can get a shopping cart. Want your quarter back? Simply return the shopping cart from whence you got it from. Shopping experience? Always frigging amazing!

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
