Thank you to everyone for your feedback on the Jury Duty post! I can’t describe the relief it was to feel other people understand where I was coming from… The experience made me think I was alone on an island called Understanding – so thank you thank you thank you! And like I said, I’m not done with this, so stay tuned. My wheels are spinning! Please continue to let me know if you have similar stories, ideas, thoughts – I love hearing them!
Today, I’m getting off the serious train & into something I consider a little more enjoyable. I become overwhelmed & disengage quickly when someone is in a constant heavy subject. Even for me, that gets exhausting. I need to full circle of conversation. I also try to enjoy my life & freedoms as much as possible because I know they are not granted to everyone.
Let’s talk Black Friday & Cyber Monday. Fuck that shit! (Yeah right, I spent the entire weekend scrolling the internet in efforts to procrastinate all other tasks. Procrastination does not end in college.)
Hell. Yes. I love the Austin City Limits Music Festival. It comes at the perfect time, the end of the boiling hot Texas Summer. The last hoorah! Some of my favorite things include live music + being outside & the lighthearted energy. (However, not a fan of festival crowds)
There’s a few pieces I’ve stalked & have my eyes on for festival time. The cool part of festivals is that you can get really creative with your clothing… REALLY creative. And no one cares. On my regular run to the Coffee Tea & Bean drive thru on Saturday mornings, I don’t feel as comfortable rolling up w/stick on tattoos & a bikini top. Come festival time, it’s all creativity on deck! OR you can opt to creativity, level 0 and no one cares, that’s the part I love. If I’m feeling red lips or glitter, I’ll happily give it a try. If I’m feeling my pajama shirt & a make up free hippie spirit, I’ll do that too. FREEEEEEDOMMM!! This year for me, I’m sticking to comfort.
Did You Know? “The month of August is often referred to as the “dog days of summer” but not because of pet pooches. It has to do with the star Sirius, also known as the dog star, which rose at the same time as sunrise during the month of August in ancient Roman times.” ( […]

Did You Know? The theory for the fashion rule to wear white after Memorial day started at the height of its popularity, the color white signified upper class and refinement.

Don’t count the days, make the days count -Muhammad Ali Hi everyone! Welcome to May, & summer?! Anyone else?!

Did You Know? Women simply don’t have the genetic potential to develop bulky muscles. They don’t have sufficient amounts of testosterone — the hormone largely responsible for the development of muscle bulk.

Did You Know? 67% of Millennials and 56% of Gen Xers prefer to shop on online rather than in-store. ( v i a ) Happy Monday! I made the mistake of trying to go shopping recently & immediately regretted my decision to skip shopping online… Ughhhh… is anyone else online only?! It’s so much easier […]
