Decor yo desk

When one must work within the confined space of a desk, it is fun to have feel good items to surround yourself with. I work in an office setting and since the day I stepped into this setting I have been accumulating many-a-office supplies. Anything glitzy, anything to jot numerous notes a day on, anything that makes my heart sing, well I'm all for it. I'm happy to say that while I have purchased many items for Le desk of mine, I have also been gifted tons too. I get very happy when I receive an item someone saw that made them think I would appreciate it.

I believe if more professionals had more fun desk flair, they would be eager to get to work to use it. I'm not saying you need a pinata above your head, but I mean slight improvements would be a good start. Say, for example, you have a stapler on hand, why not doll it up with a little sparkle? Who doesn't like sparkle???? When I hand mine over and I sense judgement, well, I am definitely taking note of who your character truly is. Do you hate chubby babies and funfetti cupcakes too?

After 3 years as a young professional, I'm proud to say I'm professional my way and I've got the desk decor to prove it.

Now run, be free, hit up your neighborhood Target and Pier 1 Import to find snazzy tidbits to doll up a little.


A few of my favorite things:


Hunty snagged my tape dispenser and my sticky note purse a couple years ago. What can I say? My boo knows the way to heart, my feet and arms many times over.


When faced with the choice of regular #2 pencils, obvi you should find the jazzy glitter ones. Obvi. Fun stationary? Check, check.


Hunter's momma Sharon, or Shanizzy as I call her, gifted me this fab pen she scored at Pier 1. Lovessss it. It goes perfect with the stapler Courtney, H's sister gave me a few years back for a bday. I Loveeeee these people!


Inspiration and love on your walls, amiright? Nuff said.


A nice desk lamp and an organized contraption to store said fab pens and glitter pencils. Keeps it clean and bright folks. An old coworker gave me his lamp when he moved roles bc I had admired it for many moons. See? Pays to be a weirdo who compliments others' desk attire.


My momma found this for me a few Christmases ago. It's short, simple, and I look at it each and every day. It's applies to so much. Thank ya Momma Knizzy.

That is it for today. I'm off to edit some video footage of the a City Council meet and greet and to the water tomorrow. I cannot wait to see some babies stick their little chubby toes in some sand and water. Excelleenttttt. Happy Weekend!

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Change Has Arrived

New adventures lie ahead.  I've left my full time job in college admissions and am now full time into mine and Hunter's business.  I'm working on a few other ventures so when I know more I'll follow up on that.

I spent 6 years working at my last job and while I always knew I would go to my business full time eventually, it hasn't truly hit me that I'm not just taking some vacation time and spending a few days away.  I'm ready for my new normal though.

It's times like this I love having a lifestyle blog.  I'll look back on this post at some point and the thoughts had, the feelings felt will all come back.  This is a big milestone, leaving a corporate type job and going full speed as a small business owner.  Yay!!

I've got big plans for the next.  Excited for what's to come.



Let's meet again,

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:
