I’m starting with the (wo)man in the mirror

Hi Lovely!!

I’ve been reflecting a lot on how I can improve as a person. Sure, I’m pretty alright as-is but how do I become the best version of myself? I’d like to learn how to communicate with others better. I tend to let my emotions get the best of me so I’d like to learn to communicate those feelings better. I want to spend more quality time with those I care about but also give myself time to be alone and reflect. My last major improvement, besides just being all around “better”, would be to cut back on shopping. I buy a lot of stuff. Look at my Instagram, or visit my house and it’s clear. I’ve started cutting back but there’s still room for improvement.

A Fun Day In Seattle

Hi Lovely!

Last weekend Fletch and I took a little trip up to Seattle for the day. My friend, Bunny (S2Hearts), hosts an event called Mahouto Market and she needed a few more volunteers. Fletch and I went up to Seattle early Saturday morning to help setup and decorate. We spent all morning getting things setup and then walked around the event for a few moments after it started. There were a ton of really amazing artists!!!

We then rushed off to grab lunch before heading over to the Pacific Science Center for the Terracotta Warriors exhibit. It was an amazing exhibit!! They had the statues roped off but you could get super-close.

I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to visit China to see the sculptures in person so seeing a few here in Seattle was a nice compromise.

After reading as many of the small plaques as one can handle we exited the special exhibit and wandered around the rest of the Pacific Science Center. I had been there before to see other traveling exhibits but never bothered to look around at the other exhibits at the center. So, we walked about and visited the other areas. It was so cool! I didn’t realize that they had a dinosaur area or a butterfly house.

We walked until our feet ached then decided to head home, back to Tacoma.

It was a marvelous day. Busy and tiring, but so amazing. I love days like these. A day made of memories that I’ll have for years to come. Me and my boo, Fletch. Laughing and taking silly photos.

Have you had any fun weekends recently? I want to hear about it!!

Feeling adorable in my new dress!

Disclaimer: I received this dress from eShakti in exchange for a review about my experience with my new dress. All opinions expressed are of course my own. 

Hi Lovely!!

I’m so excited to share my new dress c/o eShakti! They invited me to pick out a dress and share my thoughts on it. Let me tell you, I LOVE IT. When I took it out of the package I immediately squealed with glee. It’s so stinkin’ cute!!

In case you don’t know about eShakti, they sell super-cute clothing that you can have made to your measurements. As someone who sometimes falls in-between sizes and always has to get things hemmed, I love this!! When picking out this dress I decided to go with the standard large size because it was pretty close to my measurements. I changed the length of the dress to fit my short frame and left the rest as is. It turned out perfectly!

Be with those that bring out the best in you

Hi Lovely!

This weekend was pretty freakin’ busy! We had plans every day and now we’re spending our Sunday evening resting up and watching The Tick. Even though it was busy it was still really fun. I love spending so much time with Fletch. He truly brings out the best in me. Before him I was a short tempered, impatient, argumentative lady who couldn’t stay in a relationship longer than three months. While I am still those things at times and depending on the topic, I’ve learned to pick my battles. I’ve learned to let go of petty things and focus on forgiving.

Spicing Up My Life

Hi Lovely!

Last week I was on a bit of a Spice Girls kick. I listened to them… a lot.. and then started watching a documentary on them that I happened-upon on YouTube. It was an hour long so I didn’t finish it (yet). I was feeling inspired by girl power so when I was picking out my outfit for Saturday I decided to rock my adorable “Girl Power” shirt from Luella. Fletch and I were going to a concert later in the evening so I was looking for something that would be cute and comfy. I think my outfit was a success!
