About me
I am whimsical and often have my head in the clouds, dreaming up one idea or another. I like to ponder thoughts, but am often brutally realistic. In addition to that, I love clothes and shoes and styles and wondering why things look the way they do. Why some outfits look good on one person and then look different on another. More than that, I love to see the daring and outlandish thoughts, ideas, styles, things that are indicative of a strong human with a sense of individualism. I want to let my readers know that it's ok to feel lonely sometimes, that it's ok to be different and crazy and just a little out of the ordinary. More than anything I would love to give my readers the same sense of encouragement I have been given through beautiful words, outlandish ideas and colorful shoes.

It's a beautiful day outside and the lovely breeze has got me feeling quite whimsical.

@Rachel T Gupta @Chellie S I agree as well! Personal milestones sometimes might be even more celebratory than social/cultural milestones. And i love how you described taking a moment to feel grief but ultimately remembering that it's a ...

Personal space is an interesting topic for me, mostly because I grew up in an area that was pretty spacious and in a family that wasn't super touchy. We had our moments, but I remember being very shocked when ...

@Tonya Smith I think it would be a great for a six year old! The thing about these kinds of movies, I think, is that even if you don't get the subtle nuances and the big lesson at the ...

I love Friends and while I think Ross and Rachel are pretty much perfect (they're each others LOBSTERS) a small part of me will always be a little disappointed that she didn't end up with Joey. Think of ...

The most I’ve ever done with my jeans is cut them into jean shorts. But there was one instance when I was struck with sudden inspiration and took fabric paint and drew designs on them and glued on rhinestones ...

Sailor Moon and Naruto were my childhood. And Death Note may have been the only manga I've been able to finish. Anime is something that is really enjoyable for me, but I feel as though now it has kind ...
