12 Lists: Make A List of Things That Make You Feel Confident


I didn’t forget about the 12 lists — although I’m way behind! For round 2 of the 12 lists that I snagged from Chez Gillian, are things that make me feel confident.

1. Freshly painted nails.

2. Clear skin.

3. Being freshly showered.

4. A good hair day.

5. Being organized.

6. Smelling good.

7. Being “in shape”.

8. A nice outfit.

9. Freshly groomed eyebrows.

10. Eyeliner and my favorite lipstick.

Justice Or Else! Million Man March 20th Anniversary

Recent events have me utterly disgusted. That’s why I want to do what I can to help get the word out about the Million Man March happening in Washington, D.C. on 10.10.15. You can find out all of the information about it here. I just want to stress how important events like this are and urge anyone who can make it to go.

The Grassroots Festival of Music & Dance in Trumansburg was…






The coolest places I’ve ever been to!

IMG_5402Grassroots Festival reminded me of why I was so excited to move to this area in the first place. Grassroots is a festival where everyone can be totally shameless — specifically, shamelessly hippie and I loved it! The overall vibe was amazing. It was a happy event, so the energy was great.

There was food, music and fun. I now see why when people move from here, they still find their way back during the summer to attend Grassroots.

PS: One of my favorite parts about the festival was that there was (of course) a vegan food truck there. That meant me being able to eat all of the hot dogs my heart desired. If you don’t eat meat (or the meats necessary to make a hotdog), then you probably understand the struggle of sometimes wanting to just be able to go somewhere and grab a veggie hot dog or burger. Hey, Star Truck in Ithaca!

By the way, I deemed myself the unofficial photographer for my job at Grassroots. Here are some of the pics I snapped!

I’m a little (a lot) late updating some stuff, but I went to an event at King Ferry Winery a few weeks ago. My favorite part about winery events? Wine slushies. Of course I had my camera in tow and took a few pics. :)

Where’s Santa when you need him? Surely, he’s working with a lighter schedule during the summer and can squeeze in a trip to my place?

I spent the day doing my favorite thing– taking pictures of colorful things! I had the chance to take some cool pics around Ithaca and Trumansburg today. :D
