Girl, that girlfriend time plays an important part in balancing our lifestyles. We (Sabrina and Larisa) have been big on girlfriend time because it gives us a dosage of gratitude and appreciation of the little things to be all girly. Our girlfriend times give us time to ourselves to enjoy all the little things together. We love girlfriend time from chilling at home with a glass of wine to drink together to shopping together to dining out at beautiful places. All of those girlfriend times give us the satisfaction of enjoying a life that makes our souls happy. We found that having our girlfriend times gives us time to truly be ourselves and frees us up a bit from our responsibilities that life has burdened us with. The girlfriend time is a perfect brief escape from reality, and that gets us to be more productive when we return to our daily life grinds and responsibilities. That simply recharges our soul.
We also found that having girlfriend time has many positive benefits to our mental health, such as:
1. It gives us the human connection to relate more to human beings
2. It helps reduce stress when we have the release once in a while
3. It gets us to laugh and smile more
4. It gets us to celebrate and appreciate life more
5. It gives us the pride of being female
6. It gives us the balanced feeling in our lifestyle
7. It gets us to appreciate our friendship more
8. It gets us to go out and enjoy life more
9. It gives us more personal growth
10. It gets us to love life more
Those are the reasons why we value girlfriend times so much as we continue to grow and embrace ourselves more and more as a woman. We strongly believe that having a positive and healthy relationship with our girlfriends in our lives allows us to grow more into beautiful souls. Because strong women lift each other, right? Share with us your favorite activity you love doing with your girlfriend.
I have to admit that I was never a Bachelor/Bachelorette fan until this season #23. This season has completely flipped me into Bachelor/Bachelorette fan! It was mainly because of Cassie, one of the 30 women in the show who was the finalist and picked by Colton. (Psst. yes, they are now one of the hottest Hollywood items who are in the spotlight now.)

Anyhoo, on one of the Bachelor video teasers, I saw Cassie teaching Colton some basic sign language signs, that caught my eyes and I ended up watching the entire show. I was a fan of Cassie and had hoped she would win Colton's heart, and she did! This show not only showed how Cassie taught Colton some basic American Sign Language (ASL) signs, but it also showed how true love conquered all. Colton jumped over 8-foot fence and walked away from the show when he was devastated to find out Cassie was not sure about her feeling towards him and could not move forward to the engagement stage. As a result, Colton walked out from the show, and the show had to agree that he could change the show rules, so he could send two other girls home and pursue Cassie to win her heart. And he did! The whole show completely won my heart, and I am team Colton and Cassie forever! Sappy, I know, ha!
The whole point of this blog is that I am always delighted when I see someone go out to learn sign language and share the pride of knowing sign language with someone else. I am a strong believer that ASL is a beautiful language that should be embraced and valued in every community out there. I do understand that not everyone who learns ASL needs to be an expert or fluent in sign language, but taking the effort to learn some signs enlightens me. To me, this is one example as a beautiful human soul that would go out to learn more about ASL and its culture. Cassie is one of the beautiful examples of that. I am profoundly Deaf myself and use ASL as my primary language to communicate. I would not be who I am if it was not for ASL to provide access to communicate fully without any barriers. I value ASL so much and love seeing other hearing individuals use their valuable time to learn ASL. So, with that being said, to all the hearing readers out there, thank you for learning ASL and spreading the love of ASL with others. Let's continue spreading awareness of ASL and embracing it. ASL is beautiful and is forever cherished to me and our community. To my hearing audience, thank you for being part of the ASL tribe.
Thank you, Colton & Cassie, for getting me to have my wine night every Monday night. You both rock!
Who enjoys a glass of wine? We definitely do! Having a glass of wine can make you feel enhanced, elegant, yet relaxed with many benefits that come with it. We enjoy wines for many reasons, mainly for how they soothe our souls. It is easy to enjoy beautiful places when it comes to drinking wine. We especially enjoy our wine at home when it relaxes us the most. Sabrina loves having her wine during her hot bath time while Larisa enjoys her wine in the living room on the couch.
A dry red wine is the healthiest one to go with as it contains the least amount of sugar and contains a bit more healthy benefits. It is best to have up to one glass, and no more than two glasses of wine .
Wine only not makes us relaxed but also comes with many benefits that may improve our overall well-being, such as:
It contains antioxidants
It boosts the immune system
It reduces the risk of stroke
It reduces the risk of heart disease
It can lower cholesterol
It reduces the risk of Type 2 Diabetes
It reduces the risk of cancer
It improves cognitive function
It promotes longevity of lifespan
Heck, we can't lie, but there is another reason to enjoy wine. It gets us to have our girls time, get to dress up, and go to a beautiful place to make our soul feel beautiful! Now, who would like a glass of wine?
Welcome to Sabrina & Larisa's blog page where we will share all about our lifestyle and inspire you to love living LIFE. We are all about having a great girlfriend time, enjoying all the little things in life, and loving life!
