An old favorite and a new friend

Hi Lovely!

Happy Tuesday my dear friends! I hope you’re having a great week so far. I’m still reminiscing about my weekend. Saturday I drove up to Seattle to have a yummy lunch with my friend, Bunny. Bunny and I met after I stopped at her booth at several different conventions. We then started chatting on Instagram and decided to hang out. I wanted to get dolled up for our first IRL hang so I wore my super-cute Bonne Chance dress. I adore this dress. It’s pink with scrumptious desserts all over and a cute kingdom scene at the bottom. This is one of the earlier Bonne Chance dresses I bought and it’s still one of my favorites.

A quiet weekend of reflection

Hi Lovely!

Friday morning Fletch left for a last minute trip out of town. It isn’t often that Fletch goes out of town so I’m trying my best to enjoy my solo time, even if it’s difficult and I miss him. This time alone has me reflecting a lot on relationships and finding true happiness. I enjoyed a lovely evening with my friend, Jessica, on Friday and a scrumptious lunch with my friend, Bunny, on Saturday. Both encounters sparked really deep conversations. One about the stuff I buy and the future, the other about death and fear.

These discussions had me thinking about where I put importance, what do I hold as valuable? Is it buying and keeping stuff? Is it on planning for the future? Being a mom? Spending time with friends and family? How do I live a happy and meaningful life?

Showing Off My Metal Side

Hi Lovely,

If you haven’t met Sanrio’s newest character, Aggretsuko, then allow me to introduce you! She’s a cute red panda that works in an accounting department. She’s kind of a push-over in the office so when she reaches her limit she takes out her frustration with heavy metal karaoke. While I don’t really listen to metal music I can totally relate to Aggretsuko. We all have those days when work really gets to us and we have to unwind. I think her relatability is why people are falling in love with this character.

As soon as she was introduced I knew she would be in my top favorites of Sanrio characters. They didn’t start releasing merchandise for her until recently and I’ve gobbled it up. At San Diego Comic Con they released a con-exclusive shirt so I asked a friend who was attending to pick it up for me (thanks Elana!) Sanrio also recently released ita bags, one being Aggretsuko themed, so I purchased that too. I’m working on building up my collection.

Finding Your Tribe

Hi Lovely!

Happy Sunday!! I hope you’re having a wonderful day so far. Later today Fletch and I are visiting our friends Cate and Luke! We’re having dinner and watching a movie (so basically a perfect way to wind down from the weekend). Thinking about friendships, old and new, got me thinking about finding my peeps, my tribe. I’ve always found it easy to make friends but hard to keep them. I’m the girl who always has a ton of pretty good friends but not really a core group of friends. Not many besties. It has always been something I was self conscious of. Is it me? As I’ve grown I’ve found this talent of mine to be a huge asset. I can befriend people standing in a coffee line or through chatting on Instagram (mad props to all my IG friends). Not everyone can do that.

In school I would have friends that I’d quickly bond with, we’d spend a ton of time together and then after 3-6 months we’d fizzle out. I even had a girl basically write me a friend breakup letter and leave it in our shared locker. Yeah, not the best luck. I realize now that it’s not because I’m a crap friend (I’m a pretty great friend, if I do say so myself) but because I hadn’t found my tribe. I didn’t find people who got me–who accepted me for all of my weird quirks.

Feeling Oh So Magical

Hi Lovely!!

OH MY GOSH! I’m really excited about this outfit. Bonne Chance Collections recently released a new Mickey Mouse themed two piece shirt and skirt and I jumped at the chance to add it to my wardrobe. Honestly, I was worried that it wouldn’t fit and if it did that it wouldn’t look good. I’m happy to say that it fits and I LOVE the way I look in it. I’m labeling this as a success!!
