This fresh week heralds the RETURN OF APHRODITE. On Saturday, millions of people participated in the Women’s March on Washington and in other cities, showing solidarity for the myriad of repressed social groups across the nation. This card comes to us in the beginning of the week to reveal that our protests did not fall on deaf ears, even if the resulting changes don’t transpire immediately. The famed Greek goddess of beauty and love returns to usher in a new era of art and beauty as women and other minorities recieve the microphones they need to broadcast their muted voices. Aphrodite reminds us that we are all beautiful, sensual, and free — we are not property but people and cannot be owned nor silenced.

Women’s March NYC

January 21, 2017     Like This Post!

Today was the big day for women to march on Washington. It turned into a global event featuring women not only marching in America but EVERYWHERE fighting for all human rights. It was amazing reading about the expected turnouts vs the actual estimated turnouts which happened to be more than double than what they expected. It was so damn exciting.

The signs were amazing, and I immediately regretted not making a sign to march with. I don’t know what I was thinking. But I attended with my roommate, and we walked, cheered, and shouted along with the protest chants.

I took so many pictures documenting this historic event, but here are my highlights.

Taco Tuesday Embroidery Hoop Art

January 17, 2017     Like This Post!

After eight months of being in this apartment, I’m actually starting to feel settled and comfortable. Along with that feeling, I’ve been feeling good about the projects I’ve been getting done lately. Especially the ones that have been lingering for a while. Being halfway done with the first month of the new year, I’ve been feeling pretty accomplished so far which really gives my self esteem quite the boost.

Anywho, at some point past year I started collecting embroidery hoops without having any idea of what exactly I wanted to do with them. (I kinda feel like all my posts start this way. I just got hit with that groundhog’s day feeling) So, being settled into the apartment finally, I’ve been all about decorating the walls, but more like themed decorating. More so each wall has its own theme. I’ve been trying to keep the kitchen walls covered with food and kitchen related art. I recently was encouraged to make some of my own art, being that I’ve got all the supplies to do so. I guess you can say my excess embroidery hoops and the recent hoop stuff I made encouraged me to do so. In this case, instead of using beads, I wanted to actually do some fun embroidery art. I had a few ideas but settled on making some taco art because I love tacos.

Basic Bitch Of The 90’s Karaoke List

January 16, 2017     Like This Post!

So far I’ve made two karaoke lists, one of them being for the basic bitch in your life today, hah. I still feel so cruel writing that.

Anywho, if we jumped through a time warp and went out for a night of karaoke in the 90’s, what songs would be on your karaoke list? While brainstorming this list with Gabby, I had the VH1 tv show Hindsight in mind. The show took place in the 90’s and had quite an awesome playlist. I tried to channel that 90’s feel while thinking of songs for the basic bitch of the 90’s. And this is the karaoke list we came up with.

Mermaids are kinda my thing. Most folks would call it an obsession but I like to think of it as more of a lifestyle, really. Case in point — my new tarot deck that totally could have been one of the merling must-have’s from Friday’s post!

So let’s dive in.

The overall theme for the next seven days is FAREWELL TO THE MOON as the effects from when Luna was full last week will start to weaken. The tide inducing celestial body will begin to wane into a whole new version of herself this week — a good time to check in with your own inner self. Make sure your needs are being met!

Guide To Living The Mermaid Life

January 13, 2017     Like This Post!

Sounds kinda full of myself to assume that I know what it’s like to be a mermaid. BUT if I wanted to live the mermaid life, I would be all about things that revolve around scales, glitter, gold, pastel, and elegance. Keeping that in mind, I compiled a list of things that I felt represent mermaids and captures the elegant feeling we all think of when we think of these classy sea gals.

So if you want to live the modern mermaid life, here are materialistic things for you to consider having!

01. Mermaid Shampoo & Conditioner – From reviews I’ve read all over the ‘net, this company has managed to capture exactly what mermaid hair smell like. I have the Shine Spray and it’s the best thing I could have purchased for my hair to shine while smelling uh-mazing.
