it’s only natural

Wisconsin bound, making the most of my 45 min interval of free internet at the gate, compliments of American Airlines. A genuine thank you for the access… but seriously… with as many times as I’ve been canceled and delayed for hours (literally every time I fly with you), 45 minutes is all you got for me? #whereisthelove Cranky you say?? I had to be up at 3:30am to catch this flight, and my morning tea bag sunk into the bottom of my cup so all I’m drinking is hot water. So screw you world!… and your heavy tea bag!!! On a brighter note, I’ve actually been quite chipper lately upon finding some inner peace, and taking another step of growing past surrounding conflicts and being able to just. let. go. Practice that smile enough, and it’s only natural. We were created for a beautiful purpose, let’s reflect that light. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:iPHONE6 | white ensemble:TJMAXX | leather clutch c/o:THE LEATHER COLLECTIVE | shoes:MADELINE | rings:FOREVER21 | timepiece:OMEGA | smokey nail laquer c/o:INTENSAE Speaking of light, can’t decide which I like …

have a scentsational week

Good morning friends. 6:39am EST, and I’ve been lurking about my house for the past couple of hours. A new habit of mine that presents itself during nights at random… Insomnia. And I’ve got to admit… I love it. Before you assume I’ve gone completely mad (which is probably the case)… It happened first when I was under a particular amount of pressure from my big girl job. So much to do, so little time. My body was so angst, it fought sleep until I conceded around 3:30am. Instead of allowing those bitchy jittery feelings pulse through my horizontal being, I got up (brilliant) and began trudging around the house, catching up on laundry, freelance projects, pending to-do’s, and yes – even the blog. Those few extra hours were surprisingly mad productive (apparently the zombie version of myself has exceeding work ethics) – and by my “usual” morning time, I felt so accomplished; the strain of the day had vanished. And a day began with a positive outlook and a clear mind, made tackling that extra load at the office a breeze. Plus… with nothing left needed to …

on the fence

Part of the work I do for my big girl job is coordinating photoshoots for our branded marketing material – and at times stepping in as the foot model when we’re running a project on short notice. (If you’re in the shoe business, you know how lucky being a size 6.0 can be) This is one such shoot for my favorite of our brands, which you see me wearing on the constant. OTBT. These pumps are actually a part of their Spring 2015 collection, but are in early and available now here!: http://www.musthaveshoes.com/lee-mint-otbt.html What I love about the brand, 90% of them are made with the softest leathers while the other 10% are made with fun prints (I made those statistics up), the styles are a bit tough-girl, sporty-chic, and a few of the styles lean in towards comfort with footbeds and velcro closures. Don’t lie to me, I know you love velcro. And let me tell you, after trapesing around the town shooting over a dozen outfits on this particular day, this pair was …

pumps before utility

Just got back from a short hop in Florida to visit my brother. My flight was delayed on the way… by 6 hours. 6 HOURS. The gate attendants offered all of the stranded would-be-passenger’s pizza for their long-suffering. How kind. Don’t get me wrong, who would be cross at them – they’re not in control of the flight. To the angry people shouting at the poor girls… go to h***. And keep your mouths shut, you’re making the poor girl cry. And learn to relax. However, do remind me to never fly Allegiant again. (enough of my rant) Well the good news is, I had plenty of time to dally, so Instagram became my best friend of the day. Sorry if I over blasted you guys with posts on that front. Just know you were a part of the bigger picture saving of my sanity. (if it’s not already too late for that) OOTD: Sorry had to use the very impossibly cliche acronym. I just learned what it was… at the airport… during my 6 …
