The second trip however, is for pleasure. It's a big birthday this year for me... so I took a vacation to celebrate! 

So happy!!!

Big, exciting news going on in my world right now.
Can't wait to share!

Adventure GIft

This year for the babes Birthday, I decided on a travel map.

 You use push pins to track all of life's adventures, and all of the places you've been.

It had a customized plate on it so it took a while to come in but... finally - it arrived!!

Looks great!  

Now, to start applying the push pins! lol!

Make you feel...

Alina Baraz & Galimatias - Make You Feel

"Listen long, long enough, you can love me
I'll be just yours, you can hold me...
Even let you undress my mind
save it, play it, watch it, then press rewind

I can give you what you need
I can give you what you need

I can make you feel
I can make,
I can make you feel alright
I can make you feel alright
I can make you feel alright

Breathe, breathe me in, taste my words
let me blow your mind
I'll take you far, far away
I'll make you feel alright
You gotta crave it and chase it
until you're close enough to taste it."

Tahquamenon Falls

Over break, one of the things we did was drive about an hour and a half north of my aunts house in St. Ignace and visit Tahquamenon Falls.

We only went to the upper falls, because it was a legit blizzard, but they were beautiful. I think the huge snowflakes and chilly afternoon made it that much more amazing. 

We walked the short half mile hand in hand while bundled up, laughing, and teasing like toddlers.

After the walk and pictures, we ate lunch at the the Tahquamenon Falls Brewery & Pub, and tried the local brews. It was a great lunch, and a wonderful afternoon with loved ones. <3

Valentines Day

This year for Valentines Day babydoll surprised me BIGTIME.

The weekend started on Friday when we met up for a few drinks after work, where he gave me the most wonderful news about our newest upcoming adventure...

Then, I had to hold back tears when he generously handed me the gifts he so thoughtfully got me...

I had been talking about this perfume for months... it's my favorite right now <3

The big jambox (in white, of course) was perfect!

Saturday night started at my favorite wine bar, where we shared a bottle and ran into some friends. Then he spoiled me with a delicious dinner at a brazilian steakhouse.

It was such a wonderful weekend... I never wanted it to end!! <3

I Love You

Thank you.
For showing me how beautiful life can be.
For slowly leading me out of my darkness and into your light.
Thank you for all the little ways you make my heart sing.
for all the big ways you make my world a brighter, better place.
Thank you for being honest, brilliant, and kind.
Thank you for being patient, and slow to love.

Thank you.
for your strong passion, and confident desires.
... for your soft tone, and firm mind.
Thank you for your delicacy.

Thank you for letting me into your world, and allowing me to stand next to you.
Thank you
...for sometimes - letting me stand behind you, and when necessary, pushing me to stand in front.
Thank you for challenging me, and listening to my words.
Thank you for appreciating my mind and encouraging my creativity.

Thank you
For pushing me to dream and display the best parts of me.
For accepting my imperfections, and helping me realize my worth.

Thank you.
For all that you have taught me,
all that you have shown me,
and for all that you will.

I am forever changed because of you.

For that, I thank you
For that, I love you.

Big Sexy Hair

I hadn't repurchased my normal Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play in a while, but I was glad I did. 

I have the Root Pump Plus,  which works great - and ever since high School I've loved the Hairspray.

This time, I also decided to try their thickening spray Get Layered (which I love now).

They really do have great products if you're looking for big, sexy hair ;-P

Street Art

A few months ago, while in Deep Ellum we managed to catch some local artists working. 

It was interesting to watch, talk to them, and learn some new things.

Real Techniques

These Real Techniques brushes are worth your money.

I've tried a lot of different makeup brushes, some impressive, some not so impressive
A while back I went out and purchased a couple more real techniques because they're affordable and work really well.

Decent makeup brushes are a must.
They make such a difference.
