my latest love...

I was never really a huge fan of espadrille wedges,
but I will confess that lately I've grown a real appreciation for them, a liking even one might say.
Habituation, at it's finest I am sure.

While cruising the likes of each and every online retailer I could think of,
I stumbled across these beauties;
'Leroy' by Sam Edelman & simply could not pass them up.

My fingers will remained cross that they fit as amazingly as they look.

Are you guys feeling the espadrilles?

my good fortune.

I have always loved cracking open a fortune cookie -
the mystery of what my fortune could say is thrilling for me; the excitement of the secret message intended just for me and being able to apply these fortunes to my life feels validating, inspiring and insightful.

Sufficed to say, I am one of those check-your-horoscope-daily kind of girls, and if I could have a fortune cookie daily, there is not doubt, I certainly would.

My most recent fortunes have been amazingly perfect for my life and current situation and I thought I would share them with you & perhaps inspire you, as well.

"Do it because you love it."

"A kiss makes the heart young again & wipes out the years."


"All that we have is a result of what we have thought."

All of these fortunes have such deep meaning for me and really go along with my beliefs about life. Right before I began this blog, I received the first fortune and I knew it was my final push of encouragement to create an outlet for my thoughts and ideas, as well as reach for goals that will allow me to do what I love.

The second fortune just rings so true for all relationships; be it family, friends or lovers, sometimes a seemingly simple kiss can literally take you to another state of mind entirely and make you feel like a brand new person, all in the blink of an eye.

As for the last fortune, I know we all have the power to change our lives and reach our goals, simply by using positive thoughts and keeping hope in our hearts. Harnessing and believing in this power is the key, and something I am still working towards each & every single day.

(I tried to take photographs of my recent fortunes, but my camera decided they would be horribly blurred, so instead I have provided a photograph of what looks like the most delicious fortune cookies I have ever laid eyes on.)

keep the channel open.

I absolutely love this quote.

So amazingly honest & true.
After coming across this quote, I began to gain a new perspective on my own life & purpose.

I knew this was something I must to share it with all of you and I hope that Martha is able to inspire you, just as she has inspired me.

Underlying message for all of us:
Keep the channel open, always.

take me away...

It pains me to say that I have yet to leave the comfort of California; ever. Born and raised here, I have never had the opportunity to travel, but I have always yearned to see the real world - not just what they show on television.

In just a little over two months, August 20th, my six year anniversary will have arrived (I know!) and I want to do something both memorable and monumental; I feel a vacation is the perfect solution.
I also have recently graduated my first years of college, and although I eventually plan to return, I want to do something amazing & see the world before I get back to my daily grind of term papers, studying and exams.

I'm thinking somewhere sunny & warm... beachy perhaps, with a gorgeous view... good culture, amazing food, lots of sight-seeing... somewhere incredibly peaceful and relaxing....

Now because I know very little about vacationing, I am going to ask you, my readers, where your best vacation spot has been and maybe offer me some recommendations for my first real venture out into the world.

Where's your very favorite place to travel?
