The Simple Things

I’m writing to you from outside. It doesn’t matter from where outside, it just matters that I am outside. It’s a bit drab because it’s been raining but the smell of wet grass is pleasurable. I boast about living where most vacation but the reality is I forget. I don’t want to forget. I like…

Value, Virgin & Vacations

I took to the streets of London this past week. There was never a plan for the day until the day of and I loved it! England has so much to offer, it’s not only a great gateway into other European nations to catch a cheap flight. It’s worth sticking around for a cup of…

This is not a Fairy-tale!

I have been struggling with the realization that I, in actual fact am not a princess. I try to replay those indoctrinating tapes my mother equipped me with as a child- “You’re my little princess!”, “How’s my princess?” blah blah blah! I’ve only ever worn plastic pink tiaras, it’s a far cry from shiny diamonds….

All of a sudden people are not telling me what to do. To my absolute dismay, the domineering atmosphere that is the school system has let me loose to join the rat race for misplaced fame and fortune. The well of advice is running low and I’m only now realizing I’m a thirsty, thirsty girl….

10 Things I hate

Donuts I do realize this opinion will cause great division maybe even wars, however I’ve tried my entire life to like donuts and it’s just not happening. 2. Intense grudge holding Let it go! 3. Sandwiches as lunch I much prefer a “big food.” I’m not sure if that has anything to do with being…

Movie Inspired Vacations!

It’s a great way to cultivate your day-dreaming skills which in no way helps with your everyday responsibilities, so that’s always good. Luckily, fostering dreams is what I’m all about!…

I’ve picked up the dumbbells!

My optimistic self is telling me summer is just on the horizon, my realistic self is telling me to go read a book and my pessimistic self is telling me I’m not ready for summer! I’ve been thinking deeply and longingly about my summer body while eating pumpernickel bread in an absurdly passionate manner. I…

Striking Out

The irony of being completely blank when hoping to write an extract of sorts about failure is glaring. Unfortunately, we , including me have decided that giving up isn’t a good look and success is riddled with failures. All I want to know is, is anyone else tired of wiping mud off their face, using the…

“Magical Realism”

In the Summer of 2016 I took my first visit to Colombia! I word it like this because I know, that I know, that I know and I hope by NOW that you know it will not be my last! South America is close to the Caribbean and for some strange, what I can only…

Make beauty YOUR bitch

Apparently being beautiful is not an accomplishment but it definitely feels like one after two hours of makeup and another ten minutes of worming your size 8 butt into your size 4 jeans. I think it’s therefore safe to conclude that being beautiful is a skill…at least in today’s world. I don’t particularly aspire to…
