I woke up very early this morning with a sore throat, upset stomach, and aching ears. My immune system probably isn’t the strongest right now because I haven’t gotten a good night’s sleep since Saturday night. I felt a bit off at first, but then I decided I could still make this a good day! After all, I still had places I needed to be and things I had to do. It is in times like these that I’m reminded, “Some days you just have to create your own sunshine.”
First, I drank a ton of water before picking out my outfit of the day. I had yet to wear my new, blush dress from Nordstrom, and being that it is an extremely soft and airy piece, I thought that today would be the perfect day. The dress is by their brand B.P. in case any of you are interested. 🙂 Of course, I threw on all of my go to accessories including my Tiffany & Co. necklace, Karen Walker sunglasses, Miu Miu handbag, and my Sam Edelman sandals. I’ve worn these sandals like crazy since I arrived in Savannah, and they’ve really done a great job of withstanding the uneven brick sidewalks! I absolutely love them.
In addition to picking out a comfy yet put together outfit, I knew that I needed to eat something very healthy to give my immune system and energy levels a boost. So after attending my school’s major and minor fair (which I will talk about in another post!), I decided to check out Beetnix. Beetnix is an organic juice bar that also makes clean, organic smoothie bowls. I have been waiting for an excuse to splurge on a healthy treat, and this seemed like an appropriate opportunity to do so.
This smoothie bowl had blended pitaya, banana, and strawberry topped with their very own raw almond butter, hemp granola, sliced banana and strawberry, cacao nibs, a drizzle of honey, and a sprinkle of bee pollen. Whenever I’m sick, I am very picky about food in the way that I only want fruit, oatmeal, almonds, granola, or more fruit. This smoothie bowl sure filled me up, so I shouldn’t need to eat much more the rest of the day.
There are always ways to make each day a good one. Even a bad morning can be followed with a lovely day! Thank you so much for reading my blog, and I hope you all have a beautiful weekend.
