Degas’  sculpture, La Petite Danseuse de Quatorze Ans, mesmerizes me every time.

Guys, i’m breaking up with Starbucks. Well, taking a break from it at least. I gave into the Starbucks empire and let their lattes take over me emotionally and financially, but today I had a breakthrough. After reloading my Starbucks card (hey, it gives you a discount) and taking a sip of my wrong order I was legitimately angry. Which might be the silliest thing to get angry about.

So, I’m weaning myself off. Saving a few bucks. Letting my body caffeinate in less expensive ways.

It’s not even that great. Yeah, I said it.

here’s to whining,


blue aversion.

I’m really not a fan of blue. That may be a bit extreme, it’s just that blue has never been a color that I have been attracted towards. Pinks and yellows just tug at my colored heart a bit more. But, as of late, you know what blue has pulling my interest?

(wait, maybe i am a fan of blue?)*

I still claim that blue drinks, in particular, disgust me. I‘m looking at you, blue curacoa.

Monthly Desk Calendar(monthly desk calendar)

I can’t believe it’s already June. It seems like I was just cleaning Valentine’s Day decor and toasting on St. Patrick’s Day. This year is moving by quickly, and I’ve hit a hump in motivation to achieve a few tasks. Hopefully by documenting these to-do’s I will be more likely to achieve them? If not, I’ll delete this post and we will pretend like goals were never set.

  • build a headboard. my room has floor to ceiling windows. depending on the season, my pillows are freezing or toasty.
  • work out 2x/week. my 30-day shred stopped at 3 days.
  • eat less pasta. and realize one box does not equate to one serving.
  • get my eyebrows waxed. one highschool wax job gone wrong has kept me bushy browed.
  • find art for my room. my small, bare wall is in needs of color.
