Decisions Women Face

“Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore”

Snug As Bugs

I finished. This is real life right now – My article is finished! I still have some revising to do before I submit my final draft, but it is done. I am so happy! Slowly but surely I am learning that consistent hard work does pay off at school. Even if you aren’t sure how to do it, do your best. Asking for help never hurts either. I guess I’m just learning that now in my freshman year of college. Some people take a little longer to figure things out. I’m perfectly okay with that.

After I finished I took a long hot shower & busted out the makeup. I haven’t played dress up for the hell of it in a minute. Getting ready isn’t something I do often as of late because of work and school. I guess the ‘I don’t have to’ thing comes into play.

I believe in getting all dolled up for absolutely no reason other then you just feel like it. Plus, there is no harm in perfecting your cat eye. Notice my ‘Bailey’ necklace.. My amazing mum bought me a new one for Christmas. Thank you momma!

I can honestly say I have fallen back in love with my curls. Life is good when you can let your hair air dry & be good for the day. I’m sure the majority of you are fast asleep snug as bugs in lil’ rugs – So until next time, xoxo B

Twice For Luck

Andy woke me up at 2:30 in the morning to tell me that our fish, Blackie Chan, has been eating the rocks in his bowl & then spitting them out. I asked him if that was some kind of joke when we got up today, and he said no. He accused me of starving Blackie – But I feed him 3 times a day. So what the hell dude? What kind of fish does that? Anyway, that was the way I started my day today.

Lately whenever water gets spilled on the floor & I step in it (which grosses me out really bad for some reason) I automatically assume someone pee’d on the floor. Why? Why do I do this? It’s not like there is a dog or a kid here? I am an odd duck.

I am going to be working on my paper tonight. It’s due on Tuesday so it’s not that my time limit is stressful, it’s the fact that I don’t have a god damn clue what I am doing. When I signed up for this class I was ready for a challenge. That is what life is about, stepping out of your comfort zone & exploring things that scare you.

Even though I know I can do this, part of me is beginning to see what I am good at and what I am not good at. Creative writing/pulling shit out of my ass is my specialty (pardon my french) – Journalism, mmm, not so much. Avoiding the things I struggle with will not get me anywhere in life. Deep down, I am simply scared to death of failing. With lots of hard work I hope to avoid that and prove myself wrong. I rubbed my buddhas belly twice today… I hope it helps.

Until this paper is done you (hopefully) will not hear from me. XOXO

“Capturing the SOUL is my Ultimate Goal”

Good afternoon my loves. It’s a busy day today which is always a good thing. I want to share two photos of Alans that I think are quite beautiful. To view more of his work, go to his site here. He also has a facebook page, so go do your thing & ‘like’ his page. After all, supporting someones love & passion in life is always a good thing. I believe that in order to live a rich life, you must help others do the same.

Sending my love from afar… Ciao bellas.

Gems

I spent the evening with the love of my life. It was an odd day today, but a good day. I guess all I have to say is I am thankful for just one more day, one more second to express myself, to love others, to create. A friend of mine posted this song (a remake of one of my favorite songs) and I had to share because it simply makes me happy. Sweet sleeps, dreams that will turn to reality, and peace of mind is what I wish upon all of you gems this evening. Remember, every morning that you wake up you are given another chance to get it right. How spectacular is that?

Ciao bella…. XOXO

The Irresistible

I can’t help but love the fact that flaws is what makes this photograph absolutely gorgeous in all aspects. Reminds me of all of us… Imagine this photo without the marks & smudges, it wouldn’t hold the same value. I believe that is how all of us are. Humans weren’t made to be flawless, we just weren’t. Streaks & stains give rise to the irresistible.

XOXO

Women Like You

Strong legs, a good pair of pumps, & a mind of sophistication can do wonders for any woman.

“There are women who make things better… simply by showing up. There are women who make things happen. There are women who make their way. There are women who make a difference. And women who make us smile. There are women of wit and wisdom who- through strength and courage- make it through. There are women who change the world everyday… Women like you.” -Ashley Rice

XOXO
