Pastries & Portraits II x Smile A Day

 

In an effort to challenge myself and push my personal growth I have been trying to participate in activities/experiences that make me uncomfortable. One of those acts is going to events alone. Historically if I see an event that I would like to attend, I will ask a friends go with me. If I can’t find anyone to be my guest I simply won’t go. Continue reading

 IMG_5363
Traditional gifts are cool for Valentine’s Day if you are into that sort of thing. However, what about the person who is outside the box? Or just a little different?

Slackin’ On My Mackin……

Man oh man! I am no good. The month of May has decided to be so busy that I cannot find any time to just sit and write. Between preparing for Bonnaroo in June, working my side/main hustle (also known as my day job) and coming up with new project for the site, I have been SWAMPED. I feel sad because I really enjoy blogging and just writing in general but my spirit has to be in the right place. I have also been going though major changes so that may have contributed to my slackness. But these excuses are neither here nor there and when you know better you do better. So I’ll just do better. I am working on a new editorial with a fellow stylist that I am excited about and working on getting some new tools to produce better work (hello Ipad, hello new laptop, hello camera) Which means better posts and cooler stuff for you all to read and see! So this is my apology note for being a slacker. Tis all.

A Series of (Un) Fortunate Events…

This week has been trying it and rewarding in so many ways and it’s not over. However we have to start on Monday. I went to the side hustle (my day job) came home, went to the gym, then started organizing my closet. In the middle of me doing that (which I didn’t even want to do in the first place, I love clothes….dislike folding them) the water heater decides it’s done and bursts. Leaks water everyyyyyyyyyyywhere! Which meant, I had to stop what I was doing to prevent swimming in my living room. Continue reading
