Drawing Inspiration


I’ve been really drowning myself into my other blog. It’s based on something that I think about daily and I’m so happy to share with others my “obsessions”. Part of my inspiration for that blog comes from magazines. I love flipping the pages, smelling the perfume, cutting out pictures – some things technology could never replace. Yes, I may be able to have a virtual pin board like Pinterest or Polyvore, but they don’t offer me perfume samples or little cards that I can keep at bay with 5 colors that go well with gray.

With this blog, I like to share life experiences and that comes with everyday things. My struggle to keep fit, eat healthy, share recipes, rant and offer inspiration where I can.

Blogging is very personal. If you don’t have many followers, you are opening up yourself to a few that you may not even know. A few who may know more about you than your family. But it is also something that you want to be of substance, not always a ramble that fails to draw in readers and keep them interested and return to your blog or even subscribe. I wish I had more subscribers but I have this reservation about really putting my blog out there – basically pushing it down people’s throats. I like that people read one post and find me interesting enough to subscribe and see what I have to offer in the future.

patienceI’ve said it before and I’ll say it again,  I don’t feel like I should post just because. If I take a while to post in between, trust me I’ve started and deleted posts and just left it until I felt like I had something worth sharing. To push posts constantly that lack substance will only get people uninterested.

use your mindI sometimes find it amazing that I can sit and watch the world go by but I could never retain information long enough to put it in a post. My mind is like 10 trains going through a squiggly maze and I have to try to pick one train and focus on where I want to go with it. With that being said, I love notebooks. Writing my thoughts or a quick blog post on my phone is sometimes very important because I become so overwhelmed by my thoughts and you can also see y passion/excitement when I do a quick post. It’s like I’m screaming “I HAD TO SHARE THIS WITH YOU!”. And I’m kind of feeling like I have to share with you now.

Hopefully I can keep on this role of being inspired and maybe keep you inspired as well.

Valentine’s Day – Recap


Tonight I tried prosecco for the first time.

Laughed. Hard.

We had take out. What we each wanted. Pizza. Shawarma and tabouleh. Cupcakes. Prosecco. Vodka and sprite. On the dinner table. We never eat there.

Laughed. Harder.

Had a cupcake roll down my back into my hair while I attempted downward facing dog doing yoga after 3 flutes of prosecco sans vêtements.

You could as well say it was my birthday with the amount of shit we talked.

It wasn’t about romance. It was about enjoying the company of my best friend. Who is also my lover. But more importantly my husband.

Oh what a fun night.

The romance is there. 12 years together, 3 years married. Screw taking one night to be overly sensual and “romantic”. At least I know it’s not forced.

I’m loved. I love. I’m in love. I’m appreciated. I appreciate. I give. I receive.

I love myself, therefore I can love another unconditionally.

Valentine’s Day isn’t for everyone and isn’t taken seriously by everyone. Love those who love you whether or not it is a romantic relationship. Know that you are loved and share the love.

I had fun tonight.
