Unblocking the Road

It appears as though I would do almost anything to avoid writing this post. I’ve been on a three month long hiatus and I’m finally crawling out of the shadows. Lately I’ve felt as though I’ve hit a bit of an artistic wall, a roadblock, a rut if you will. An excuse for laziness you might ask? Perhaps.. I’ve long been searching for… Read more →

Whiskey and Bone

Like many small businesses, Whiskey and Bone is a one-woman show. Each piece is hand crafted with care using natural elements like animal bones, crystals, metal and leather. Many pieces are… Read more →

Part of the Club

Happy Friday! I’m going to keep this light in lieu of all the craziness going on. These pictures were clearly taken pre-hair cut. I made the mistake of going to someone new instead of my regular girl. That someone “new” actually wasn’t new at all. She happened to be a middle-aged woman who had been cutting hair since the 80’s and… Read more →

Trust the Process

The levees are breaking and the water is rushing in. It seems that everybody I talk to is struggling to hold on these days. The dream is clear, but the road ahead is dark and troublesome. I wish there was a set path, a paved roadway to guide us to success. We went to college; we got the jobs–but now… Read more →

Be Fearless

I saw a woman wearing this hat in the middle of summer in a vintage shop. She stood tall in the doorway, draped in gauzy fabrics, dripping with silver and turquoise jewels. Her blonde hair was tangled in perfect waves and her matte red lips, unforgiving. Damn, I thought to myself. That woman is fearless. She held herself in the way… Read more →

On Change

Well life has been quite hectic lately. Trying to forage your way through the mysterious jungle of life, love, and the perfect career is no easy feat. I’d like to think I’ve got it all figured out but the truth is, I’m winging it.. just like the rest of them. Lately, My mind has been stuck on the notion of change. I met a man… Read more →

Fall Wardrobe Staples

  After much research (stalking my fav fashion bloggers on Instagram), and hard work (scouring the internet for something cute/affordable); I’ve finally secured my first round of fall wardrobe staples. 1. Greek Fisherman Hat:  My #1 definitely goes to the Lieutenant Hat by Free People, more commonly known as the Greek Fisherman Hat. I’m all over this 70’s-inspired, grunge hat and in desperate need of a break from my… Read more →

Summerdance Music Festival

This year’s Summerdance Music Festival turned out to be another smashing good time. It was a blissful weekend filled with great weather, laughs and altogether silliness. Not to mention swimming, cliff jumping, Lotus, and LOTS of PBR. Summerdance Music Festival is hosted at Nelson Ledges Quarry Park; a scenic camping spot with quartz and sandstone cliffs, and woodland as far as the… Read more →
