I started this blog for many reasons. But one of the reasons, was to meet new people. I love having people in my life who help me learn a bit about myself, and challenge me to think of idea and situations in a way I wouldn't normally do by myself.... Continue reading

Awesome post, and found some new blogs of awesome ladies doing what they love. Thanks Violet!
LeSha you're so right. I hope that once I have kids that I will be able to share this and other handkerchiefs with my daughter. I'm so secretly praying for a girl...when the time comes :)

I'm a huge fan of Jimmy Fallon mainly because his musical sketches are brilliant! My favorite is probably the Mariah Carey one. But a few days ago Fallon had a sketch with Justin Timberlake where they showed the ridicliousness of using hashtags. As funny as it was I'll still be... Continue reading

Mimi, I think the problem is so big now that hopefully they'll start creating classes that will help young adults instead of setting them up for a life of frustration. Thanks for the comment!

A time when I screwed up or made a mistake, is today's prompt for Blogtember. Sometimes it's hard to be so raw and honest with people you don't know. But topics like this is a part of why I enjoy blogging. I love being brutaly honest with myself...sometimes:) It wasn't... Continue reading

Today's Blogtember post is about reviewing a place, book, or product. Since I spend so much of my time in this particular place there was no question of the place I would pick. Red Tree Gallery is a coffee spot in Oakley. If you're familiar with the area, I'm sure... Continue reading

Yesterday was a sort of surreal day for me. I got my first press mention in Cincy Chic yesterday! After the article came out I started to get a few sales, and got a bit overwhelmed because I didn't know how crazy it was going to get. Then I remembered... Continue reading

Whodathunkit!! A few weeks ago I got a surprisingly sweet email from Katie at Cincy Chic. If you don't already know about Cincy Chic you'll have to check out their weekly online magazine that is all about fabulous ladies(incld. editor and publisher Amy Scalia) in the Greater Cincinnati area. Well... Continue reading

I remember when Facebook came on the scene. I was pretty burnt out on myspace, as was the rest of the world. I was living in Chicago going to art school, and instantly got hooked. I remember looking up anyone and everyone I could think of. Exes, old friends...some I... Continue reading

In 2000 I graduated high school and enrolled in college. But as a student I never took it seriously. I slept, drank, hung out. and studied... sometimes. I didn't take it seriously at all it took almost 3 years for me to realize something needed to change. My parents were... Continue reading

My first celebrity encounter was with the rapper Common some ten years ago. This was before his most popular album Go came out so he was still I guess considered an underground artist. I was at our local mall in Cincinnati and I spotted him at the fountain waiting for someone. A little girl came out of the store(his daughter), and I knew I wanted an autograph but I had nothing to take it with. I ran a few feet to the Lucky store and asked the cashier for some register tape and a pen, ha! I explained that I saw Common, but of course she had no idea who he was. I walked up to him, apologized for interrupting his father daughter time and asked for his autograph. He was very sweet and soooo cute! I wonder where that autograph is?
Since I'm a bit new to this blog thing, I've decided that blog challenges are the way to go. I recently came across Blogtember on Jenni's blog, Story of My Life. For the month of September she gives her readers a list of blog topics for the entire month. And... Continue reading
