April City Life Vlog: Who do You Think You Are

Hi loves! This month was a month of adventure! I decided to finally pay for a DNA kit from Ancestry.com on St. Patricks day because it was 10 % off. I delved into my family tree and history and the more I found the more I couldn't stop. I would have loved to film this, but for me, it was a rather personal experience; so I decided to vlog what I was comfortable with via photos.

On my own I was able to trace my ancestors back to the early 1800's to two specific plantations and 4 cities. At this point, I just couldn't stop there so I paid for the DNA test and then started planning my trip to the Kingsley Plantation in March. I had an amazing time and I am so glad that I went there despite being apprehensive because I am an empath. I also go to visit historic St. Augustine, which I have never been in my life as a Floridian. I pretty much did as much research as I could to find gluten free restaurants in Jacksonville and St. Augustine because I can't take anymore chances at getting glutened after the last year I have had. I am really happy to say all of the restaurants stood up to my personal (health) standards for gluten requirements.

This months project has truly been a moving one! I am still 3 to 5 weeks out from my DNA test results, however, I think I know a little of what to expect now.

Food and diet: I pretty much ate fish all month even while on vacation. I tried a lot of new recipes and I added some of them to the bottom of this post. It was too many to add on one blog post so I will post more next month.

October Fabletics Collection: Dream Catchers

I had a lot of fun this month working out in the dream catchers" collection. I was originally drawn to this collection because of the vibrant iris color. All of the items shown below are totally unique to Fabletics meaning they have not been released in past collections. I pretty much loved everything I worked out in and everything was true to size.

This was the first month ever that Fabletics came out with a high waisted legging! They are pretty soft,  I found the fabric to be thicker than usual so this is a legging that I would wear during the cooler winter months.  I also want to note I got this legging in the 25 inch inseam. Out of all the outfits this one was probably my least favorite. The fabric seems to be twice as thick thank the fabric used on the other leggings so its not that comfortable and feels more restricting. The bra seems to be the same fabric as the bottoms. 
Next, the high waist rolls down about an inch while working out. This may not bother some people, but…
