Forever Seeking Wanderlust

” Today I seek all I sought.

Mountain chuckles are not so distant as I grow closer to my vision.

Repelling off of the hardened surface, longing for a undiscovered purpose.

I unexpectedly become unaware of the thin air.

Stop breath in, run your feet down the stone until your feet are but, inches from the ground.

Thoughts travel, mind in a scramble.

Upper lip drips while my concentration thickens.

Stop breath in, run your feet down the stone until your feet are but, inches from the ground.

Don’t withhold, clear your mind, take in the scene you were so eager to unfold.

Deep, Deep, Deepening, my breath.

My eyes are surely not deceiving, can it be a moment meant for me, its so tiny looking down sparkling blues, deep greens, the shining. Take in the minute never spared.

For we dream of days like these.

With adventures in our reach.

Our presence goes unseen, clouded by the days spent wondering about what is to come.

Never to become what was.

When the sun smiles back you, the ocean whispers a tune and, the mountains chuckle awaiting  your silly joke.

Listen, open your eyes and, send this message back to them;  I long to seek you from a far, as I seek you I am far but, now my eyes truly see no more deceit . It is exquisite once mind lets me be me. “

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

Wanderlust The Moments

Dreaming about places far away and, having trouble staying in the moment? Day dreaming can be nice but, it also, takes us out of our reality just like the virtual reality games… Fun however, staying in the moment is much more exciting then we think. I take advantage of smells, colors, and animals I see throughout my day. Even taking a walk is a privilege, I am thrilled to have two legs that help me to walk, to arms that can change my music, two ears to listen to my music, two eyes to enjoy

the wonders of our beautiful earth, a nose to breath in the air and, a mouth to taste the fresh air. Recently I have been posting about wanderlusting simple things like splashing my feet in a puddle and, seeing my friends. We often think what if my life was like this, we almost never think my life is amazing and, there is so much to be grateful for. Instead we dwell on the past an, long for adventures of our future instead of enjoying the present moment. When you hear “Live In The Moment,” it has become almost impossible because we have too much chatter from the mind and, others telling us there opinion, what they think, your life being decided for you. Walking like a zombie in life does not

benefit anyone especially, yourself. I have learned a few things from actually being out of college so which I already knew and, new and, exciting ways of living I should cherish; Life is what you make of it, you are never stuck there is always a way to make your dreams possible, nothing gets done in one day, stressing out does

nothing, listening is the key to be a good friend, enjoy the wander in your backyard, if you don’t like your life change it, everyone is the same and, no one should be intimidating to you, elderly people may

have more life experience but, it doesn’t mean they can’t learn from you nor, are they always right, forming less opinions about others is the best opinion you could have, wake up to something you love listening to, never let anyone get in the way of having an amazing

day everyday, expectations are over rated, adults such as ourselves are just children grown up and, meant to take life more serious but, you don’t always have to, enjoy a deep breath of air, walk as if it is

your last walk, be present and, stay in the moment, schedule yourself but, don’t over do it a day without a plan may be your best day ever, money will come and go love doesn’t, embrace others, have conversations that matter and, aren’t surface level, don’t hold onto anything negative instead, embrace it talk it out and throw it out its not important, start everyday fresh, and the most important be you, you are amazing and, people won’t get to know the real you if you try to make yourself something you’re not. My tip is

have to a great support system of friends who you love, encourage, build you up, don’t take them for granted. If you don’t have supportive friends who have deeper thoughts then the next trendy item I suggest finding out more about that person and, turn your acquaintance into a friend. This year my word is determined which is defiantly a perfect word especially when it comes to working; I have two ebooks I’m working on, Amazon book selling,

YouTube, with a new channel foreverseekingwanderlust, Blogging, pet sitting and, hopefully an etsy shop will lotions to debut sometime late October-November.. I have been extremely busy! But, with all of that I still want to learn on a free site called futurelearn.com, and study to get my permit then, license. With all of these accomplishments and, goals I have still managed to stay in the moment, see friends and, am trying to fit in cleaning haha. You are all bus as well and, I thank you so much for taking the time out of your schedule to read about my learning curve and, staying in the moment. Next year my word is going to be embrace which comes as a bit of a struggle to me at times and, even now I am encouraging myself to embrace others. I have one more tip and, then I want to close with a challenge I have for you all. I know not everyone is religious and, it is not something I have talked about openly on my blog I believe in God and, find that having a

conversation with God almost everyday helps my day to go by smoother. I do chat and ask why this or that happened and, sometimes I get a sign and, most of the time I don’t. But, I believe that faith helps me to carry through the day. This year I was so blessed to be able to spend a week as a chaperone helping the youth but, also, helping those in the Tennessee area. I got to work on a women’s home and, I had a long chat with her one of the days we were working just about family and, farms. The last day we were all set up for a picture and, she asked where the little red headed girl was from the other day we all assumed it was another girl one of our youth that she was talking about when suddenly I realized she meant me. Mind you I was kind of dressed like a boy that day in basketball shorts, a t-shirt and, a batman baseball cap. As I acknowledge I was there I couldn’t help but, giggle in my head thinking I won’t describe myself as a little redhead girl but, I was so humbled that she had remember me and, the conversation we had. I will never forget our little special bond, hugging her and, her saying you are leaving. We of course had to leave it was our last day on the project, the team leader said to her you will have another group helping you in two weeks and, I’ll never forget her words, “I don’t want

another group, I want this group.” In the beginning of the week she was a little bit timid, weary of us and, by the middle of the week she came outside to work with us by the end of the week I had a memory that would last a lifetime. You may not all be religious but, I hope sometime in your lifetime that you are present and, aware enough to experience the same kindness and, connection that I did. So, I challenge you to volunteer anywhere over the next year, write down words that you need to conquer in your life, get off your devices and, live.

 

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

One Of My Favorite Songs For The Last Three Years Or So:

Forever Seeking Wanderlust

Ciao loves,

My new YouTube Channel is here, forever seeking wanderlust. Forever seeking wanderlust is a channel that will provide ethical fashion and, travel videos. I know there will be questions on why I decided to start a new YouTube Channel when I already have allie vLuv that I am still trying to grow. I still love my channel allie vLuv, no pun intended but, I also, have grown as a person and, some of my perspectives/ views have become stronger. With a longing to travel and a desire to join the ethical movement forever seeking wanderlust was kind of a no brainier. With a blog post series already called, forever seeking wanderlust and, an opening for the name on YouTube & Instagram it had to be fate! So, from now on all ethical/travel videos will be found on my new channel forever seeking wanderlust. That means my capsule wardrobe planning process and, finally getting my fall capsule wardrobe will be featured on forever seeking wanderlust and, of course on here, my blog. I think you all will really enjoy this new channel and, what it has to offer!! I know I am pumped and, trying to figure out how I want to edit the videos and, what videos I want to film on this channel. It is such a particular niche that I want to keep it that way. All of my other videos will be put onto allie vLuv which is board and, I love it that way. Until you all jump over to subscribe to forever seeking wanderlust I will post all my videos on allie vLuv as well so, you don’t miss out. Eventually though, forever seeking wanderlust will have it’s own platform and, no longer be featured on allie vLuv because they are two different channels. I am trying to decide if my travel videos are going to be vlogs or not because I have quite a few trips coming up business wise & as a chaperon! As you all know, I am also, saying for lovely Italia! My new video is about ethical fashion and, breaking news within the ethical fashion industry. I play my role as a news caster which is actually kind of funny and, also, touches on some serious topics. I think this will be either weekly or bi-weekly which is so much fun! It also, spreads the ethical fashion message. Here is the video enjoy and, please subscribe it would be most appreciated!

I joined a gym?

Yes,

Hello loves, I have joined a gym but, not because of the gym equipment but, mainly because of the pool!! I will be starting my training to try to get my swimming back to where it should be. Today on my vlog I talked about moving my channel toward fitness and, ethical fashion. On my new YouTube Channel “Forever Seeking Wanderlust” I will be posting travel vlogs and ethical fashion videos. If you are a follower of allie vLuv don’t worry I will still be posting vlogs, hauls, makeup, and vegan videos. Back to the gym, well, I had enough with not being physically fit. I have a few knee problems and, Reflex Nerve dystrophy so, I want to ease back into really getting in shape. I used to be on the swim team when I was younger and, just swim a lot in general. I will start with getting back into swimmer shape and, work on my technic. Once I have been able to get myself to a solid 20-30 minute swim I will start to incorporate a challenge that I would to put on the YouTube Channel. I was watching a YouTube Channel I will link a video down below, and, he was doing 40 hours of working for the week. It gave me he idea of pushing myself to do 3 hour challenge and 1 hour every other week to build up resistance. I will have to be careful of running because of my knees I will have to build up fast walking/jog to a run. Once I have established a jog, longer swim I can start the 3 hour 2 week challenge and keep building that up until I reach my 40 hour goal. I realize that it will take me about a month to get myself back in semi-swimming ready. I also, want to be able to bike to the gym over this summer which will be amazing when that happens. The visual of riding my bike to the gym is inspirational in my mind and, I can not wait for that vision to come to life. What we manifest, we put out to the universe what we want and, in return the universe usually gives us what we would like. We have to want it, think about, pray about it (if you are religious), write about it, and act on it. Your positive acts, thoughts, and feeling will be contagious; it is the kind of contagion that I wish would spread throughout the world. I am very excited to peacefully transition into a healthier/fitter lifestyle. As I start to lose weight it will be captured on all of my videos. I plan on eating vegan, of course, but, I will either be fruitarian or rawtill4. I will be learning what my body fuels on best when working out more and, how much I will need to bring with me. I am thinking i will be incorporating more medjol dates, smoothies, bananas, and of course my favorites melons!! I just bought a cap for my hair so I can swim with ease, I already own a one piece bathing suit, and goggles. I know that bathing suit isn’t going to be so flattering but, in my mind I have gotten over myself and, focus on where I need to get my body in order to be healthier and, have a happier life. Are you all excited to follow me on my journey, what are some post you would like to see, do you want me to do a weekly diary of how I am doing what I eat and, how I am coping with this new workout schedule. I am a little nervous, determined, excited, and motivated lets get it! This journey is amazing….

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

April Favorites

They say April showers bring May flowers but, for New Jersey May is even rainier then April. All of this rainy weather makes me think back to all of my April favorites! I have six favorites to discuss and, they are not the typical monthly favorites that you see on YouTube. I will also, have this posted as a video on my YouTube Channel for those of you who would rather watch me talking about the products.

If you all follow me on Instagram you will know that I have been doing a bit of archery. I have to say it is quite fun. It is great to try new activities & move around!

We have just gotten started on our garden so, an April favorite would be seeds to plant our vegetable garden. I absolutely love the garden and the serenity you find from the plants. We are planting a few different kinds of lettuce, tomatoes, melons, beans, and few other veggies!



As you know I have been ranting and raving about ethical fashion and, it is for a good reason. As I have chatted about to you all, ethical fashion is important so, we have clean water, no more unfair labor, and so the landfills stay as empty as possible! April really was the month that sparked this ethical movement so, I thought I’s add it to my April Favs.

And if you all didn’t see this coming you do not read enough of my blog posts or watch enough of my YouTube Videos. I feel like I should be sponsored by Poshmark lol the amount of promotion that I do for them. I just love Poshmark and the idea that you are recycling your clothing to have other Posher’s reuse them. It is a great platform to start a business and, earn an extra income.

Trending: Vagabond Lifestyle

So, in today’s world you work in the corporate world, 9-5 job, and 90% of the people working are burnt out, stressed and, zoned out of life. That is not completely accurate because there are many people selling everything and, traveling the world. To me this is the best idea and, what I strive to do in life. So, why is living a vagabond lifestyle popular? People actually sell their cars, houses, and most everything they own just to travel and, live out of their backpacks? Yes, and I am beginning to see the draw and, passion for just living. Why not drop everything and travel around the world that has a much greater appeal then working hard long hours to eventually hate life. So, what happens if you are like me and you don’t have a house or car to sell? Well, I am working to establish a nomad kind of lifestyle. I just started a travel YouTube Channel called Forever Seeing Wanderlust and, I hope that my journey’s on there and, on my regular YouTube Channel allie vLuv will help me to create an income for myself. I have my blog, selling books on Amazon and, I am looking into selling fair trade t-shirts on etsy etc.. I also, sell on Poshmark. I am hoping with this large combination of jobs that I will be able to provide a great income for myself to travel. I would also, like to have the means to purchase a better bike and, car. How do you think you would be able to provide a nomad lifestyle for yourself and, where would your first trip be to?

How To Manifest What You Want In Life

Manifestation: clear of obvious to the eye or mind

display or show (quality or feeling) by one’s acts or appearance

Yesterday, I made my manifestation list and put it out to the universe where I want to be in life. I made my list pretty specific and, had lots of positive energy while creating the list. Sending light and positive energy toward this with a reminder that you want these to be peaceful transitions. Keeping a positive outlook on life defiantly helps the universe to receive what you want to manifest in life. As I said in yesterday’s days post ask and you shall receive. You are in charge of your destiny so, do something about and, create a positive surrounding. Any negativity get rid of it, it is only you dragging you done from where you want to be in life. This goes for the way that you are holding yourself as well. Channel positivity and light and, you will start to receive it from others around you. I will post some music and, YouTubers to follow to start fueling yourself with positvity! Tomorrow I will talk about my Morning Routine and, how I make sure it is packed with an abundance of light and, motivation. Wednesday will be the topic of the lymphatic system and, how I never realized how important it is.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

Saras’s Book:

Wanderlust: Summer Palnning|Life Goals|Working Goals

Hello Loves,

This is going to prove to be an exciting summer with the prospect of growing all of my businesses and, a bit of traveling. Ahh, the thrill of the unknown and, new places to venture. Today, is a working/planning day for me as I need to increase my sales on Poshmark & Amazon. Along with those business goals I am also, trying to increase my views for my YouTube channel and of course my blog. With my new goals I am a little jumbled with how to get this all accomplished and, of course, intertwine my healthy life & helping the planet goals. Will all this on my mind, I have found I have become more exhausted and, have learned to listen to my body. One of the main reasons I am “trying” to work from home is because I do not have the energy for a normal 9 to 5 job. Some days I am thoroughly exhausted and I need a mid-day nap or a quick break. I am strategizing not only accomplishing my work goals but, taking my life & health goals into consideration. I would say most of the time we do not take care of ourselves and, it leads to health problems later on in life. I want to take care of myself now instead of 30 years down the road when I have worked myself down along with my health. Healing myself from the inside out is my main goal for my life right now. I follow many Vegan YouTubers and, when I wake up in the morning I look forward to watching their videos. Mel, from Raw Nourishment always seems to have the perfect video for what I need to hear that day. Her recent video about making a list and manifesting what you want in your life was just right. Although, her video was about her vegan boyfriend, that is not a high priority on my list this year because I am learning to heal my body, grow my businesses, and love the person I am. Each day I have grown to learn more about myself or my body and, it is fascinating. I no longer worry about what people think of me I am just myself and, I Love it. It is hard to express the change in the way I am because it is not  a physical change but, more of a self accepting change. I feel I have always been myself but, I feel I have actually embraced it. I am more determined and focused to accomplish my goals and aspirations. I am self aware and aware of the disturbance we are putting our planet through. Recently, I have talked about ethical clothing and moving my Poshmark closet into an ethical clothing closet and, possibly my own boutique. Growing my businesses helps me to grow as a person and move forward in my life. In the next two years I would like to get my own place and, travel. To be able to travel & get my own place I need to work ten times harder and longer to accomplish that. I think that everything that I need to get done I will and, my life will fold out when I least expect it to. Let me know how you are feeling and, if you have become enlightened within yourself. Thank you for taking the time to read and, if you enjoyed it please share it would mean a great deal to me.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

Black Strap Molasses & Health Benefits

Hello Loves,

Lately I have been enlightened about healing my body. How I need to heal from the inside out and from the outside in. I am sure, that you have seen me inch closer and, closer to holistic, ethical, vegan friendly living. How else am I going to cure myself from all the calorie restricting and, harsh chemicals I used to eat/wear… Healing my body in ward and out ward is my first step toward healing myself. I want to make sure I am filling my body with whole plant based food as well as, mentally healing myself. I am not taking about healing myself mentally as an illness; I mean healing my entire being with the appreciation of life and, everyday abilities. I mainly do this through yoga, mediation and, the embracing of life. Now, I am taking it a step further and, really listening to my body. If I feel I need to rest I rest, if I want to dance I dance, if I need to move I move, if I need tranquility I rest my mind. No longer is my body subject to the ways others live their live but, the way I want to live mine. I have felt so much better these past couple of days just listening to what my body needs and wants. I will be talking to you this week about how important movement is for our lymphatic system and, how we do not give it enough attention. I will also, take about skincare and, how important and imperative it is to use vegan products and, chemical free products for your skin. Today, I am talking about Black Strap Molasses and, why I decided that my body needed this item and, why hadn’t anyone mentioned it to me before… Black strap comes from sugar cane and is boiled three times. Unlike, refined sugar the health benefits are incredible. It is used for healthy hair, skin structure, diabetic sweetener, natural laxative, with vitamins, and minerals.

Minerals & Vitamins:

  • Iron
  • calcium
  • manganese
  • selenium
  •  Vitamin B-6
  • niacin
  • potassium
  • copper

Blackstrap molasses is important  because it has a high amount of iron which “helps transport oxygen to the body tissues.”(http://healthyeating.sfgate.com/blackstrap-molasses-nutrition-3887.html)

Black Strap Molasses doe not contain fat and, the kind you want to ingest is Unsulphured Black Strap Molasses. If you would like to learn more about it there are many articles just google it and, you will find these facts and, more! So, my question is why didn’t we know about this sooner and, isn’t this a great replacement for a daily vitamin!? By the way, I tried it for the first time this morning and, it tastes like licorice! The texture may be a little hard to handle so, a tip is to put it into the fridge to thicken up.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

Society Is Holding Us Back People Who Are Breaking The Mold

Recently I have been watching YouTube Channels instead of regular T.V. Most pre-teens to thirty year olds are watching Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube much more than they are watching Cable Television. I think the number one reason is because it is convenient. Most of us use have smart phones/Tablets where we can watch shows or YouTubers during classes, or on your way home from work if you take the bus or the ferry. It is easy to throw on a pair of headphones and tune the rest of the people out until class starts or you are back from work. Why do we watch these shows/channels; are we bored, want to tune out, enjoy the characters, or want to live their lives. Anyway it is a way to escape and turn your brain off for a little bit. Now we have so many choices that we have control over what we watch. Lately I have been watching some more positive and enlightening YouTube Channels. This week it has be been the YouTube Channel Sailing La Vagabonde. I get to watch Riley and, Elayna with minimal sailing experience sail all around the world. I journey with them on La Vagabonde and go through the ups and downs with them. It is so interested to see all the spots that end up in where almost no ones heard of or the mistakes they make and, learn from on the boat. They have been sailing for awhile and, it has been a year seen they started their sailing videos on YouTube. I am currently on episode 14 and, I’m going to be sad when it ends. I do hope that they continue to upload to their channel because I enjoy watching their adventures. They do fish a lot so, if you are vegan just a disclaimer, I obviously have my reasons for not eating animals including fish but, it is not going to stop me from watching their journey. I hope you all check out their channel the link will be below.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,
