THE BUJO IS BACK | PLAN WITH ME FOR SEPTEMBER

September is near And the deer are a’frolics. The bujo’s are back in rotation a’rockin. If I cannot wait one more day. I’ll truly throw my calendar away!

Well… it’s been a minute since I threw down some poetry verses. But, slam dunk, I say!

I’d say, not.

Of course you’d say that. You’re just not as imaginative as me. Now, let me get back to this… well, whatever I thought I was doing – Oh! yes. The Blog.

If you haven’t yet done a bullet journal, you are MISSING OUT. It is seriously one of the most satisfying – takes me back to being a little girl – things I do for myself, each and every month.

Not each AND, every month..

Right. I skipped summer. Well, there was that gardening fun I was getting into and some personal distractions that took me away from them but those are neither here nor there. Oh wait! I did do a gardening journal! Is that close?

Hmmm… maybe?

Anyway, let’s just hop right into it. This week, I’ve got two announcements! First, plan with me for this September. This week’s video was an Easy Bullet Journal Setup.

Nothing crazy. I’m still using my pre-printed calendar from the big box retailer from over a year ago and I plan on using it until its done.

So, consider this video a simple version, a learning version for the faint of heart! new bujo fan

  • Second announcement!
  • I have partnered with a health & wellness brand and added the title of Health Coach to my resume under my entrepreneurial umbrella!
  • And I’m also the founder of WELLFITwithRITA. We’ve started new video channels just for this as to not to have competing interests.
  • On WELLFITwithRITA you’re going to find information, tips and talks on mindfulness, nutrition, health/fitness, and overall well being. I may even – throw in a little yoga class here and there.
  • Anyway, stop over to the new channel & subscribe where a welcome video is waiting just for you to smash the like & leave a comment to say hello!

Newbie Beginnings in Gardening | Spring & Summer Series

daydreaming about vineyards

This year, I took on newbie beginnings in gardening. For the last installment of the Spring Summer Series of 2021 and as I look forward to the shady trees and changing fall leaves. I took beginning gardening. Ooooo, how about a sequel…

You know NOTHING about gardening.

That’s right, I sure as heck DO NOT know much about gardening AT ALL. However, the things I learned as a “know-nothing” gardener for the Spring and Summer Series will be valuable one for years to come!

Newbie beginnings in gardening is a journey and boy! is it labor-intensive! But, I will say, I have never enjoyed doing a hobby more than I did taking on this challenge. In fact, when I get settled into my new place, I am going to pick it up again! Maybe start a vineyard!

*slaps forehead* A vineyard…

I totally want a vineyard.

You and your ambitions.

I Know! Isn’t it amazing to have so much life to live!

Knock it off already.

Um… Nope! Couldn’t do it. And believe me… I have tried!

To be able to watch things grow from seeds to seedlings, to then small plants, and then towering buschels of zuchinni is immeasurable to my joy. If you have yet to start a gardening adventure out of fear, don’t. Don’t waste another minute. The rewards of harvesting your own food is so amazing.

Sure, there were learning curves. A lot of plants didn’t make it. I had a freaking critter problem I never fully exterminated. And, I sure as heck didn’t have the support system – like a paid grounds keeper – I would’ve liked either. But, all that being said, I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

First things first… if you are afraid to start, or are overwhelmed with what and how to start let me give you a small to-do list. You know I love my lists!

“Mary, Mary, quite contrary… How does your garden grow?”

I mean, it literally is that simple.

Still not convinced? Enjoy the audio version of this post at Rita’s Dump: https://anchor.fm/ritaslanina/episodes/202-GARDEN-GOOSE-e164904

I challenge any of you to take up gardening, even if it’s on a balcony, or one potted plant on your windowsill. Start with anything small and see how you do.

And while your at it, take a look around at my newly published titles and scoop them up over at Amazon. Don’t forget to leave a positive review!

You’re only missing a green thumb if you neglect, or over-love your plants. And believe me, I am guilty of over-loving my plants… and I still grew stuff!

The Bikini Declutter Project

The next installment of the Spring & Summer Series of 2021 is HERE. The BIKINI DECLUTTER PROJECT. And, I’m giving an overhaul to my bikinis and one piece swimwear! Now, I’m not sure how well this is going to go; but, I’m going to give it the ‘ol college try!

*this should prove entertaining.. and you didn’t go to college.

Au Contrere, ma frere! (Did I french that right? haha)

Eh, No.

And hey! Actually, I did, thank you very much. Just more of the community variety. *shrugs

So, over the past year, well let’s face it, since the whole world went on a pause, I felt it was time to give my wardrobe some sauce. Or rather, pull some out of it! Ha!

And what better way than to start all that monkari joy sparking, with swimwear!

*You’re still saying it wrong… It’s KonMari.

Yeah, yeah. Ya’ll know what I mean! Don’t steal my joy! *so punny!

One of my goals is to upgrade the armoire. And that includes revamping to a better version of my poolside glamour. As we all know, I’ve been on hiatus for far too long, I’m back posting videos to my regularly scheduled YT Tuesdays! (And blog/pod Wednesdays!) And I’ve already begun with the third installment of the Spring and Summer Series of 2021 with THE BIKINI DECLUTTER PROJECT (and try-on haul)!

I had to kick this one out of my vault because I’ve been on a mission to really give my clothes (and in this case, bikinis!) an overhaul! Join me! What’s your wardrobe look like these days? How’s your swimwear game?

But first, the rules:

The bikini declutter project got me shuffling through my work piles too – and as I’m checking off lists and to do’s that have been stacking up – I released some new books! Are you a journal nut? Do you like planning your vacays with travel planners/bullet journals? Then, give my Amazon Author page a looksie! Oh, and don’t forget to buy some copies todayto add to your collection!
