Eat Pray Love – Italy

Eat, Pray, Love (by Elizabeth Gilbert) is one of my favorite books…well I have a lot of favorites :), but I’m re-reading it for the second time, because I just felt like I needed to since I’m trying to figure out my life right now.

So I felt like I would blog about it since I get a lot out of this book.

This books is basically divided into three parts – the three parts being the three different countries Elizabeth Gilbert visited. Elizabeth is a travel writer, so she has already been all over the world, but she takes a year off after her divorce to figure herself out and what she really wants. The book is about her travels and what she finds out. O, and it’s a true story as well.

The first of which was Italy…which is the EAT part, where she spend four months eating (duh) and learning to slow down and enjoy her life. I love this book section because it makes me want to go to Italy and learn another language. It also makes me hungry reading it. She learns how to deal with the sadness that came after her divorce and how to deal with it. I think one of the other important things she realizes is to just slow down and enjoy the beauty in things.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from this section (and if you saw my book, I totally have the whole thing marked up like its a history book or something. yeah, I’m a total nerd!):

– “This was my moment to look for the kind of healing and peace that can only come from solitude.”

– (in response to her prayer, the feeling she received back) “I’m here. I love you. I don’t care if you need to stay up crying all night long. I will stay with you. If you need the medication again, go ahead and take it – I will love you through that, as well. If you don’t need the medication, I will love you , too. There’s nothing you can ever do to love my love. I will protect you until you die, and after your death I will still protect you. I am stronger than Depression and I am braver than Loneliness and nothing will ever exhaust me.”

– “‘So sadness is a place?’ Giovanni asked. ‘Sometimes people live there for years,’ I said.’ In return, Giovanni told me that empathizing Italians say L’ho provato sulla mia pelle, which means ‘I have experienced that on my own skin.’ Meaning, I have also been burned or scarred in this way, and I know exactly what you’re going through.’

– “I look at the Augustem, and I think that perhaps my life has not actually been so chaotic, after all. It is merely this world that is chaotic, bringing changes to us all that nobody could have anticipated. The Augusteum warns me not to get attached to any obsolete ideas about who I am, what I represent, whom I belong to, or what function I mayb once have intended to sere. Yesterday I might have been a glorious monument to somebody, true enough – but tomorrow I could be a fireworks depository. Even in the Eternal City, says the silent Augusteum, one must always be prepared for riotous and endless waves of transformation.”

– “It’s all for the best, I know it is. I’m choosing happiness over suffering, I know I am. I’m making space for the unknown future to fill up my life with yet-to-come surprises. I know all this. But still…”

– “The Bhagavad Gita – that ancient Indian Yogic text – says that it is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection. So now I  have started living my own life. Imperfect and clumsy as it may look, it is resembling me now, thoroughly.”

– “In a world of disorder and disaster and fraud sometimes only beauty can be trusted. Only artistic excellence is incorruptible. Pleasure cannot be bargained down. And sometimes a meal is the only currency that is real.”

– “…and when you sense a faint possibility of happiness after such dark times you must grab onto the ankles of that happiness and not let go until it drags you face-first out of the dirt – this is not selfishness, but obligation. You were given life; it is your duty (and also your entitlement as a human being) to find something beautiful within life, no matter how slight.”

Get Rid of Tired Eyes

I don’t know about you, but even at only 26, one of my biggest problems is dark circles under my eyes! I always feel and look like I haven’t slept, even if I got a full eight or more hours! I HATE THAT! I think this probably happens to most people, no matter what your age. The skin under your eyes is very thin; in fact it is three times as thin as anywhere else on your face, so you have to take care of it! Be careful to try and not rub it or pull on it! (I’m the worst at that!) I always try to moisturize there the most.

Here are some great products to help sooth your eyes and help you look more awake! Plus they are all $50 or less! (with the exception of one that is $55) Sometimes when you get into department store prices,things can get a little crazy, so I thought I would find some of the ones that were a little less expensive for you. Enjoy!

‘Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel’ – $14.99 at most drugstores (Cooling cucumbers help you depuff)

Ole Henriksen ‘Ultimate Life’ Eye Gel Roll-On – $28 at Sephora.com (This roller ball does wonders for puffy eyes in the morning!)

L’oreal ‘Advanced Revitalift Double Lifting Eye Lift’ – $14.99 at most drugstores (Vitamin-E to lift and Retinol to avoid wrinkles)

Givenchy ‘Mister Light Instant Light Corrective Pen’ – $33 at Sephora.com (Great coverage and so easy to blend)

Christian Chin ‘Hydra Eye Lift Gel’ – $49 at ChristianChin.com (Dab this on every morning and just wait for the results!)

Shiseido ‘White Lucent Anti-Dark Circles Eye Cream’ – $55 at Shiseido.com (This eye cream targets both types of dark circles around the eyes: pigmented melanin formulation (brown circles) and poor micro-circulation (blue circles).)

Darphin ‘Anti-Fatigue Smoothing Eye Gel’ – $38 at Darphin.com (Opens your eyes with ingredients, walnut and caffeine!)

Your eyes will love you after this! And you will love looking at  back that them!

Chicago Trip – Day 4

Today was mostly a baseball day, since it was a day game and don’t you worry, I had my fill of hot dogs and nachos for lunch! Yum yum yum!

How cute are these old men playing music outside of the stadium?

Jake’s favorite player, Justin Verlander, pitched today so he was really excited to see him play. Tigers win again! Also, I should probably explain that this was the main point of the trip. The tigers were playing the Cubs, which doesn’t happen every much because of the different leagues or something, so Jake was like let’s go see the Tigers play and see Wrigley at the same time and make a trip out of it, etc. The tigers are his favorite team, if you haven’t figured that out yet :). But I was really excited because I ended up loving Chicago. I would totally go back!

Up on top of the stadium at one of the food areas.

Jake sitting in the “cursed” Bartman seat…look up the story…something about why the Cubs haven’t won a World Series in forever…I watched a show about it with him once. Kinda interesting.

The rest of the evening we walked around the city and saw a few more things. We ate at this great place that our friend, Burk, told us about downtown called Volare. It’s a little Italian place, and it was amazing! It’s another must go. The bread was sooooo good. I could not stop eating it, but I wanted room for my food! Also, add meatballs to whatever you get as a side, even if it doesn’t make sense because they were also so good. I also highly recommend the ravioli! And request to sit on their patio!

I had to go to bed so early because I was getting so exhausted from the trip and I had to wake up at like 3 for my flight the next morning.

I seriously am in love with Chicago. I totally want to go again to visit some more sites and to go shopping! I didn’t get to do a lot because there wasn’t much time and boys don’t really have too much patience for that sort of thing. Plus I think I was just so focused on eating that I wouldn’t have been able to try anything on and have it fit normally! Haha, but really they have just as good of shopping as New York and I wish I had been able to partake! Also, they have great places to go out at night and great shows. So next time Chicago be ready for my money and I want to see one of your shows! (not that you didn’t steal enough of it already haha)

Kale’s present when we got home…yeah it’s the cubs, but he needed something from Chicago right? The cubby bear is on it!
