Hometown Nomad: Every Day I am Discovering Something New

Kansas City always seems to surprise a good way. Why did I not know about all of the art fairs, food truck offerings, parks, live music, and other things to partake here?

I have begun falling for this place and now consider it to be my home.

i am a bougie girl: Gratitude

I am grateful for this current season of my life. There are parts of it which are under heavy construction and will be for the foreseeable future. I accept that heavy duty dreams require hard work and I am definitely here for it.

Divatosity: Reclaimed Wood

I love the look of reclaimed wood. The color and texture of the wood makes me think of a quaint field with farmhouse in the distance.

Girl Rock Your Size: Magical Blouses

This blouse is magical. It's a blouse or tunic depending on what is worn underneath it.  Place a tank or even a long sleeved t-shirt underneath this garment to add some warmth.

i am a bougie girl: Taking Notes On Accounting

I flunked my first ever Accounting test. I was surprised and a little disappointed.  The good news is that I can take the test over again. I have almost finished my test outline.

Divatosity: Imperfectly Finished

A couple of months ago, I had a spray painting party of sorts...and the results were mixed. I started off with a dark paint that did not contain primer. 
It was a disaster. I removed the dark paint and then decided to use a light green as a pop color...but,that was a failure as well. Finally, I chose a pewter color which thankfully covered up my past painting sins.

Girl Rock Your Size: Black Jumpsuit

Holidays are almost here. This jumpsuit with the daring neckline and lacy back will definitely take you throughout this holiday season in style.

i am a bougie girl: Thursday Night Out...

This past Thursday, we toured a local bourbon distillery and afterwards were treated to several samples. This was my first time touring a bourbon distillery. 
My fellow bourbon tourists were good company and I will more than likely make plans to go back.

i am a bougie girl: A Moment

It only took a moment for me to decide. In that moment, clarity washed over me. I saw a woman struggling to convince the world of her value. Each failed attempt brought me closer to the soul of who I truly am. 
I am a woman of value and I must never forget that again.

Divatosity: A Windy Evening

This year Halloween night was blustery and cold. But, we managed to make the best of a windy situation. The kids in our group had a blast trick or treating  and the adults spent a majority of the time laughing with one another. We had just as much fun as the kids. This to me is what Halloween is all about.
