What Happens When You Lose a Grandparent Young

Losing a grandparent at any age, I’d imagine, is traumatic. However, (luckily?), I have not lost a grandparent as an adult. Only as a child. I don’t know if thats lucky or not honestly.

I lost my grandpa when I was six years old, and because life is completely unfair, it was a few days before Christmas. If you told me I had to pick one moment in time that changed my life forever, it would be this hands down. I cant help but think of all the ways my life would be different if he was still here. I would have so many different skills, so many different stories, a whole entire different life. However, these are the cards that have been dealt to me, so play them I must.

So It’s Been A Year…

Posted in Just Me., Lifestyle by

“The Climb” by Miley Cyrus plays softly in the background……

I can almost seeeeee it. That dream I’m dreaminnnn…

How did I even make it here? (literally we made it here because my domain auto renewed on my debit card). I was supposed to be paying attention in my Intro to Law class, which was a battle that teacher was never going to win. A three hour class on a Saturday? Im out, I mean I was there, but you don’t have my full undivided attention at those hours.

Mexico, traveling to Riviera Maya.

Posted in Just Me., Lifestyle, Travel by

Let me just say…..I want to be a travel blogger now. I loved Mexico, it was so gorgeous. I have spoken before about travel anxiety, and just having anxiety while traveling. It did not go away this time. My stomach was trying to murder itself at the airport while my brain was trying to tell me all the ways I was going to die. So basically, an average Tuesday for me. 

Breakfast at JoJos.

I had general anxiety about leaving home, and leaving my cat. I had general anxiety about flying and traveling. I also had general anxiety about leaving the country, especially Mexico. All you hear is bad shit about Mexico, and I don’t even believe half of that stuff and I was still scared. Mexico had become synonymous with the word “kidnapped” in my mind. I fully expected to step one big toe off the plane and be immediately kidnapped, thanks MEDIA.

It’s Global Champagne Day Bitches

Posted in Dranks, Just Me., Lifestyle by

I read somewhere on the Internet that October 19, 2018 is Global Champagne Day (not to be confused with United States National Champagne Day, which is New Years Eve). So it must be true and I’m running with it. Finally a holiday I can wrap my mind around. What is better than celebrating a drink that you use to celebrate things with?? It is the Inception of holidays. 

Royal Wedding READY

I cant remember when I started to like champagne exactly. I always liked mimosas….like a lot, because I love brunch (aka doing my drinking during the day time). Then, one day, I had a realization…”I can drink this without the orange juice…….” The rest is history.

The Kavanaugh Effect

At this moment in time, a man is being considered for a lifetime appointment to The Supreme Court. This man has three times been accused of sexual harassment/assault since his nomination. His name is Bret and was a frat boy. Obviously. Brett Kavanaugh tried his best to negate the claims, not keeping his cool one bit, and showing he doesn’t have the level head needed to be appointed to the highest court in the land

However, this is not about Brett. This is about Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Who bravely came forward with her claim and story when Kavanaugh was nominated. Also, I’m sick of the

“huh convenient time to come out don’t you think”

Like, yes, I do think. Survivors probably never want to come forward, but if their attacker was about to get one of the most important seats in the government, that would be the time to come forward.

Welcome to Sips and Scandals

Oh, hello!

A couple of the most wise girls I know (here and here) have said similar things that resonated with me lately. It all boils down to, if you wait for everything to be perfect before you start something, you’ll never start. 

So, here is something new I’m trying. Its raw and awkward and well, its real. The name isn’t set in stone and we wonder off here and there but as far as I’m concerned….it only gets better from episode 1.

Coffee Cups

What makes me happy, you ask?

Whenever I think about what makes me happy, or what would make me happy its always something dramatic. 

“I can finally afford that Gucci belt”, “I really want a Louis Vuitton”, “I want to go to Greece”. I’m really an all or nothing bitch, but I’m trying to change that, you wanna know why?

Re-birth, Re-brand, Re-…..honesty?

A wise woman once told me, put your name on your shit. Own the shit you worked so hard on. Don’t hide behind a name. I really didn’t think I was hiding, I just didn’t want my real name everywhere. However, this is real work I’m doing, and I love it. So you know what? Screw it. I want you to facebook me when you read my stuff, I want people to reach out, and I want my name in GIANT LETTERS by everything. Because it is MINE Read more…
