Adulting: Health Concerns

I have been all over the place the past few weeks. Mostly with my health concerns on the rise. Have I ever stated adulting is hard? If not then there you have it. I’d love to be a child again, harassing my mom and getting into all kinds of ruckus. Lately, I have experienced extended…

twenty-seven dresses

After purging my closet of some old dresses, I can now say that I only own twenty-seven dresses. This meant a lot to me and my partner. For different reasons, haha. He definitely has a bit more space in the closet now. I got rid of two boxes of dresses. It was truly hard to…

party planning

As much as I like throwing a party, I’d rather not plan it. Well, that is when I am behind and everything seems last minute. Oh, time flies when you are busy working for multiple people. It’s hard to work for yourself sometimes. I have been planning a house warming party for my partner and…

The Depot

Located only thirty minutes from me, open seven days a week stands a big place called The Depot. I mean, it’s only 88,000 square feet of antique heaven. They even have a fabric shop inside, which makes it all worth-while. I literally have to plan a day just to go there. My thirty-minute commute turns…

I am not a shoe girl.

Let’s face it. I am not a shoe girl, at all. The fact that I have shoes on is probably because it’s required by society. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate them nor do I refuse to wear them. I am just overall not a feet person so you see where my trouble begins….

I’m back

My biggest apologies about my absence. I’ve been in and out of the trenches. Wether it be work, sewing, family, and health. I now have four holes in my mouth. My wisdom teeth were finally removed thank goodness. That pain was no longer welcome. I’m still on a soft diet due to healing. It’s a…

Spring is here!

Screaming “Hell yessssss!” to this warmer weather. I’m so glad I can start taking layers off of this chocolate skin. The sun is out and about sharing it’s rays. As of now there are no showers on standby – I couldn’t ask for more. Feeling the sun on my skin makes the day just that…

Learning your role

What roles do you play in the life you live? I have been logging different examples to explain and understand the different roles we play in this life. I am currently a woman, sister, daughter, auntie (as well as other family roles), friend, partner, coworker, and the list builds. We need to focus on some…

flower power!

I grew up rebellious against femininity. I was determined to be stronger, better, tougher, taller, and more compared to a man. Early on I saw a man as a competitor, someone I always had to prove myself to. I’m telling you this because because of that, I didn’t like girly colors, flowers or anything associated…

losing loved ones.

I experienced losing a loved one as early as seven. I remember it well, we were playing a spice girls game. At this time my sisters and I shared a large bedroom. My mother walked in and calmly told us my cousin had passed and we were to visit her family soon. She was so…
