Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden Summer 2021 Display

Good evening lovelies! It’s hard to believe I’m smack dab in the middle of my fifth summer in Las Vegas.  One thing I miss about living in the Midwest is watching the seasons change. I took for granted all those years in Indiana being able to witness the leaves transition to their fall wardrobe. I…

5 Tips for an Amazing At-Home Manicure

Good evening! I haven’t posted any beauty content in awhile, so I thought I’d share 5 things to keep in mind if you want an amazing at-home manicure using acrylic nails. I’ve done my own nails at home for many years, and really enjoy this small act of self-care that I can enjoy while I…

Today I satisfied my sweet tooth. 

Today I satisfied my sweet tooth.  I had my first bite of Crumbl Cookies in 2020 when I was pregnant with Aevrie. I lived close to the UNLV location at the time, and thought the shop was so cute. I loved the concept, a rotating menu of fresh baked cookies available for pick-up or delivery….

Today I started a new journal. 

I love the feeling of starting something new. I picked up a new journal at my local Barnes & Noble to track my progress with starting another stream of income. I wanted a black, spiral journal that didn’t have any writing prompts or quotes. I loved this black and gold journal distributed by Fringe Studio,…

Our thoughts betray us.

Nothing is ever as good or as bad as you think.Nothing ever takes as long or lasts as long as you think.When you’re wrong about it all, every thing is still alright.In all ways, it’s always all right.Our thoughts often betray us. We trust them the most.Being is living is unlearning is freedom.Being is breathing…

Today I went on a flower hunt.

Today I searched for beauty in the spaces I occupy everyday. In my hurried comings and goings I never stopped to appreciate the beauty and fragrance of my neighborhood and my place of work. Today I went on a flower hunt. “If you want to be happy, be.” Leo Tolstoy Featured image by Ante Samarzija…

Today I made tea.

Today I made tea. That’s it. That’s the headline.  For the last few months, I’ve attempted to map out the best plan of attack for launching my YouTube channel. I’ve pondered and re-pondered. I’ve mulled and reconsidered. I even uploaded a couple of videos, but I wasn’t particularly proud of them.  I’ve had several false…

Today is my first Mother’s Day.

Today, and every day, I am grateful for my mom.  Before I became a mom, I didn’t believe the women who said they couldn’t fully appreciate their mothers until they became a mom themselves. That notion always seemed silly to me. Even as a young adult I felt like I had a pretty good understanding…

Time ≠ money.

Time.  It’s the resource we can’t produce more of, and the thing we most hate to waste. We spend so much of our lives trading our time for money, that it might feel strange, maybe even wrong, to spend it solely on ourselves.  Time is currency, but some of us allow society to dictate how…

Finding the words to say nothing.

With Cherise‘s help, I’m happy to report that for the last 11 days, I’ve kept to my word on publishing something each day. When I challenged myself to post daily for an entire year, the only real goal was consistency for consistency’s sake. I wanted to see if the grass would be greener on the…

Stinky Beans Coffee Roasters at Tivoli Village Farmers & Artisan Market

Happy Sunday! Yesterday Aevrie and I ventured out to a nearby farmer’s market. Every Saturday from 10AM – 3PM in Tivoli Village, Fresh52 hosts a nice line-up of local and regional produce, natural skincare, small-batch baked goods, and delicious eats. I had a large pile of dirty clothes waiting for me back home, so I…
