Alaskan Cruise In a Carry On - Toiletries and 1 Quart Bag

Is anyone else as intrigued as I am by what other people bring in their toiletry bags and luggage when going on vacation?  No, just me?  Well in case you like to creep as much as I do, I decided to do a couple of posts on what I'm bringing on my 9 day cruise to Alaska.  I am only bringing a carry on rolling suitcase and a tote size purse, making it subject to the size and weight restrictions as well as the 1 quart bag for liquids rule.

An Overly Detailed Bathroom Tour

I absolutely love YouTube video and blog posts on what products people use and what they keep in their bathroom.  I don't think that's weird at all.  Or maybe it's just me and I'm strange?  Well in the event that it's not just me, I decided to share a closer look at what's in my bathroom, including my shower, drawers, and under the sink, plus how I organize it all.

An Update To 'My Epically Decluttered Wardrobe'

Back in October of 2014, so almost 2 years ago, I wrote my first post on decluttering my wardrobe.  As you can see in that post, I kept 198 items after getting rid of 66 things.  Which I thought was pretty bad ass, since that number included shoes, jewelry, winter hats, everything.  I mean, think about your space - if you have 20 necklaces, 15 pairs of shoes, 5 pairs of jeans, 20 pieces of underwear, you can see how quickly it might add up!  To me, 198 was a damn good number; I had purged a lot.  And now my closet looks like this:

Goal Setting Tip of the Month: Try 'Tiny Habits'

This month's goal setting tip is all about embracing the idea of creating tiny habits.  A Tiny Habit is something you do once a day that takes less than 30 seconds and requires little effort.  It's important to anchor the desired behavior to a "trigger."  For example, remembering your vitamins.  Your tiny habit might be "After I pour my coffee, I will open my vitamin container."  The natural progression is that you'll then take the vitamins, but it's all about that first tiny step, anchored to something specific that you do every day (pour coffee.)

Fall Film Challenge 2016

"What? It's not fall yet!"  No, it's not, we're solidly still in the summer season, don't worry.  But Jenn has already put out her categories for her fall film challenge and I needed to get a start on picking my movies.  I participated last year and checked every movie off my list, and ended up loving ones I thought I would hate.  Plus I won a prize (Redbox gift card!) so that always makes it more fun.  There's more prizes this year so if you're thinking of joining in, that's great incentive.  You can head over to Jenn's blog post for all the rules, but mainly it's that the challenge begins on September 1, giving you plenty of time to get your picks in.  I really hope you'll join in.
