NOVEMBER IS MY FAVORITE MONTH OF THE YEAR AND HERE’S WHY

November is hands down my favorite month of the year! The weather is crisp but not too chilly and the leaves fall off the trees so beautifully. Why November? I’m glad you asked because here’s a list of my favorite things about November:

It’s my FAVORITE person in the world’s Birthday is this month (my daughter, Sierra Giselle) – My life changed forever and for the better when I had my mini-me at 3:36 on November 7, 2013. I still cannot believe she turns five years old today. YIKES. Happy Birthday baby girl 🙂

So, my daughter was born two weeks before MY birthday. Do I really need to elaborate on this one. HAHA. (This year, and many years in the past, my birthday has landed on Thanksgiving!)

As mentioned above, my birthday falls on Thanksgiving this year and I am beyond excited because it’s my favorite holiday. My favorite day and favorite holiday equals me in heaven for the day 🙂

Holiday gatherings – Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving (I consider my close friends family)

Sweater weather – You cannot go wrong with a cozy sweater that fits your body well. It’s perfect to wear with a light jacket or a heavier one for when temps drop outside.

FOOD and SWEET POTATO PIE (My favorites! I love Thanksgiving food and desserts and I save all my really bad eating days for this time of the year.)

ASK JINNA: 10 THINGS I’M DOING FOR MYSELF IN MY 30S TO KEEP SANE

So far this year for me has been about getting to know myself in my early 30s, spending time learning my four-year-old daughter (she changes everyday!), building new relationships/improving relationships, self love and self care.

I decided to share a list of 10 things I’m doing to keep sane in my 30s:

  1. Love MYSELF unconditionally
  2. Manage my debt (including school loans, medical, and credit card debt)
  3. Workout more
  4. Drink more water
  5. Take better care of my skin
  6. Set boundaries in my personal relationships
  7. Cook dinner more during the week
  8. Take time to myself to be creative and/or relax
  9. Take more baths
  10. Go to more happy hours and events even if I’m solo dolo

What are you guys doing for your own self care and self love?
