May Goals

Guys is it just me or did April freaking fly? Seriously where did this month go? It has been a kind of blah April for moi I must admit, my mood, the weather. It has just been blah. Not bad, just blah. I am still patiently waiting for spring days to inspire my soul, it has been a slow process up here in this icy windy land I call home. I guess all those dresses I keep buying will have to keep waiting for their time to shine. Anyway, I am excited and a little underprepared to head into May…

March Goals

Hello, everyone! I am excited to be writing this post! The last monthly goals post I wrote was in March of 2016. Woah time flies! I wanted to get back into the swing of writing these little monthly goals posts because while I was looking at last years posts I felt rather nostalgic to see the plans and things I was up to back then. These kinds of posts are not only a great way to hold yourself accountable but also fun to look back upon. So seeing how March 1st is the traditional beginning of the new year I…

3 Museums you Should Visit in Amsterdam

I am a museum kind of gal. I love the romance and admiration that washes over me when standing in the presence of an ancient art piece. There is something so awe-inspiring about the enthusiasm and dedication in which artists, royalty, and religion had in regards to documenting the myths, legends and everyday experiences of society throughout the ages. I think the thing that impresses me more than the actual art or artifacts themselves is the shared respect that each culture has in preserving history. It is a beautiful act that makes us human. There are so many lessons…

5 Quotes to Help Practice Kindness & Patience

Good day, beautiful people. I feel frustrated by people lately, by the unkindness of others and in return the unkindness of myself dealing with those people through my agitations. Are you following me? Basically, people can be difficult to deal with. Sometimes I wonder why people all too obviously put themselves on a pedestal and try to keep others below them in some way. Driven by a false sense of status. Many people place themselves on a pedestal held high on top of their material status in life, position in their careers, material wealth, age. This is such an unhealthy…
