Here’s the thing. I hate waking up early but I’m a morning person. I know. It doesn’t make sense. I love mornings because the sun is just rising

Today, I am introducing a new segment on my blog called Marveling Mind Munches. I want to start exploring more restaurants and yummy spots in Atlanta. In the future, I might branch out to neighboring cities and towns. I love trying out new dishes. I am not a fan of ordering the same thing over and over again. That's why I wanted to start this series on my blog. I will also share my experience in my weekly vlogs and on my Instagram

My first spot for this series is Victory Sandwich Bar. During my lunch break, I met up with Ashley. We went to their location in Decatur and both loved the vibe right away. They have indoor and outdoor sitting, due to the times we are in, it is great to have the options. All their sitting is spaced out and sectioned off. I think what really got my attention was all the beautiful plants. If you know me you know I love me a good greenery display, exhibit A.

Okay, okay... enough about the decor. What about the food? Yes, let's get into it! I ordered the Porkemon sandwich and to be honest, I only got that sandwich because it reminded me of Pokemon, which I think is the point. I'm on to you, Victory Sandwich Bar... very clever. The Porkemon sandwich consists of Korean bbq smoked pork, soy-ginger slaw in between a toasted bun. Simply put, it was delightful! It was also $5, which is not bad for a sandwich. The portions are not big and I could have definitely had another one to fill me up. Overall, Victory Sandwich Bar was victorious. Teehee, see what I did there? I highly recommend you check them out. I do not drink but I also heard they have amazing alcoholic beverages. So, grab a drink with your sandwich!

edge naturale, follicle enhancer.

When it comes to my natural hair, I hardly ever stray away from my current products. The fear of trying something new really gets to me. Although, when I heard about Edge Naturale's hair follicle enhancer I  knew I had to try it out. I needed to share this product with you because I have seen the benefits in my hair growth and I am shocked. 

One of my go-to protective styles are wigs. In the past I used to pull off my wigs without taking time tito remove the wig gel and glue. I know, I know... I can feel your judgement but I didn't know better and to be honest I was lazy. Now, my hairline is feeling the consequences of my actions. Now that I use Edge Naturale's hair follicle enhancer, my hairline is getting back to normal and I am very happy!

I love yellow! Even though, it isn’t my favorite color it never fails to bring me joy. According to the “fashion police,” certain colors are meant to be worn with their designated seasons. Although, I think fashion rules are meant to be broken. Wear whatever makes you happy. Even though yellow is associated with summer, I tend to wear yellow all year round. Mustard yellow reminds me of autumn leaves… so I guess I can get away with it? I personally think yellow is one of the few bright colors that work all year round and even if it didn’t “work” all year round that wouldn’t stop me 😉

Goodbye summer, it's been real. We all know that this summer was not what any of us thought it would be but we tried to find the positives in a difficult situation. We attended Zoom parties, tried TikTok dances, and had a few picnics. Now, I’m ready to see what the rest of the year holds. I am praying for bigger and better news! If you read my post on failure, I touched on some of the things that 2020 has thrown at me, and to be honest, is still throwing at me. Although, my spirit will not waver. 


I wish I could say this has been a summer to remember but I wouldn't be upset if some parts of this year were wiped from my memory. How was your summer and are you ready to wrap up the year? 


 

working from home, WFH, home office 


Wake up but don’t get up

One of the benefits of working from home is the comfort that comes with it. The stress of waking up 2 hours before work to take a shower, get dressed, eat, and sit in traffic is gone. I recommend that you wake up 30 minutes before you start work but stay in bed and relax. Then check your emails and complete urgent tasks while in a relaxed state.

 

Get dressed and seat at a desk

After I have had breakfast and reply to all my emails I get ready for my day. The habit of getting ready prepares my mind to work. There is something about changing your clothes and sitting down at a desk that simulates a work environment therefore you are more likely to get things done.

 

Have something to look forward too

I always give myself rewards when completing a task. I get a yummy snack or spend a few minutes during my lunch to call a friend and get some human interaction. I also reward myself with a few minutes checking social media and watching funny videos. The key is to only do so for 10 - 15 minutes then get back to work.

 

Go outside

This is extremely important. Halfway through your workday it really helps to move around and if possible, go outside. It helps to step away from your desk and get a breather. I personally go for a quick run during my lunch break. When I get back, I shower and eat. I get a pump of energy to tackle the second half of the day.
