A Rose so Red

IMG_0740

Hello again, and welcome!

I hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend. Mine is a 3-day weekend due to President’s Day here in the States! It’s been a quiet, peaceful one for me. Lately I’ve been finding myself searching for artistic inspiration; it can come from anywhere really, so I’m always on the look out. That, and I’ve been reading – reading a lot. I find myself going to bed earlier just so I can get a bulk of reading in before I officially go to sleep.

I’m finishing up yet another military book at the moment, and when I’m done, I think my next read will be something on the Gulf War. That’s one I know very little, if anything, about.

Hahahaha, notice the mug? It’s a Christmas mug! The size is so perfect though, that I end up using it year round at home.

Check out my new roses! My sister made them for me upon request, and they turned out so beautiful. These will perk up any plain top or dress and instantly adds a feminine touch.

I HAVE to show off my new nails!!! These are my favorite nails I’ve ever had done! I am still amazed at how beautiful they came out. The manicurist had never done glitter ombré nails before, so she was just as amazed at the outcome! These are my dream nails come true. ❤

I took this photo on Saturday; I ate dinner outside of my favorite natural food store called Lassen’s. A book, some vegan food and a water fountain as background noise = perfection.

Okay, so my sister has been crocheting up a storm and she made me a FLOWER COASTER. I now use this any time I’m at a coffee shop. I whip it out from my purse and booooom…serves a dual purpose of looking pretty and absorbing condensation when I get a cold drink!

That’s all for now! See you next time!

  1. Way to keep the Valentine vibe alive! Your rose theme is so feminine and pretty; your sister did an amazing job on the collar. And I know what you mean about doing lots of reading. I love going through one book after another; it’s the best way to escape and relax!
