Anotha Winter Solstice Mood

I hosted a little “Favorite Things” party (highly recommend) with my girlfriends last night and we ended up diving into an astrology book about our birthdays and it was spot on! We also whipped out some “Friends” themed tarot cards and examined our past, present and future. I’m starting to think about my resolutions for…

NO MO CHEMO

We’ll folks. We’re officially at the end. I say “we”, because ya’ll have been on this damn journey with me. I didn’t cry when I was first diagnosed (probably because I was in shock) but I almost cried in my doctor’s office a couple weeks ago when he said he wanted me to do another…

12 Pretty Pictures of Cabo

This is long overdue since I went on this trip 6 months ago.. but was still wanted to share. I love Cabo. The water, the culture, the shopping, the food. I love it all.  This trip was a little bit of adventure and a lot of relaxing since in treatment and my body can only…

Cancerversary – 2 Years Fighting Leukemia

TWO YEARS FIGHTING CANCER in selfies. Another rollercoaster of a year, this time with more hair. It was slightly easier than the year prior, thank goodness. There seem to be more good days, some realllllly crappy days, but mostly just ok days. I’ve gotten used to feeling super down during steroid weeks. I know when…

I Bought Shampoo!

This may sound strange, but I got emotional buying shampoo for the first time in over two years. My hair is growing ya’ll. To quote the wise ladies of “Drama Queens” One Tree Hill podcast, “Hair matters”. It’s been a while since I posted a health update… sorry I’ve been living it up. I’m doing…

Valentines Fits

Valentines Day is coming up and even though I don’t have a sweetheart to celebrate with, I do have a deep love for shopping. So if I were going to celebrate these are pieces I would consider buying. They’re not all items for just fancy pants dinner rezzies. There’s a little summin summin for different…

FRIENDSgiving

I hosted a Friends themed Friendsgiving / Birthday Party this weekend. I am a die-hard fan. I put Friends on before bed almost every night. I’ve seen each episode numerous times and would kick your butt at Friends trivia any day. And yes, I enjoy throwing my own birthday parties because 1. I love to…

Fake it til you make it?

Often times my response is “Great!” when people ask how I’m doing these days. That response is relative to how I felt last year but in comparison to my healthy life pre cancer it’s not so great. Does that make sense? I feel crappy 10/7 instead of 24/7 so to me that’s a win. Basically…

Color of the Moment: Kumquat

Sometimes I get stuck on a color. I buy everything in that color and I start seeing it everywhere. Earlier this year it was Pink. Then I moved on to Kumquat. I think the obsession has subsided but I wanted to share some of the moments I had with it this summer. (see above photos)…

Malibu Rising

I go back and forth on giving Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid 4 stars or 5. It gave me all the feels but I’m pretty picky when giving a book a perfect score so I’d say it’s about a 4.25. It was, however, a perfect summer read. I especially enjoyed it because it was…

Friday the 13th Dinner Party

I hosted a dinner party last week on Friday the 13th. It was more Practical Magic and less Freddy vs Jason vibes. I always wish I had taken more photos after the fact but when we’re in the moment we are too busy enjoying ourselves to snap pics. I recently found out my mother has…

Poke, Pareos and Poi; Maui Nō Ka ʻOi

… jk about poi tho. I sometimes forget this was intended to be a travel/adventure blog since it turned into a bit of a cancer journal. Well, I finally have a trip to report on and have been putting it off, mostly because I’ve felt like crap lately. Let’s dive in…    As soon as I…

A Day in the Life – on Chemo Steroids

Wanna know what being on chemo steroids is like? It’s 3am. You’re wired from insomnia, in excruciating back pain, full-on sweating. Then you… Read an entire novel. Take Pepcid so you don’t die of heartburn the second you eat something. Grind through a work project that would typically take 4 hours in approx. 55min. Create…

Books I Read on Vacay

I just went on vacation to Hawaii and I brought 3 books with me. I was reading a book before my trip that I couldn’t get in to so I ditched it and bought fun summer books that are easy to read. First I read Beach Read by Emily Henry. It was super easy to…

“Who We Are” – Tyrone Wells

I’ve mentioned before that Tyrone Wells is my favorite singer/songwriter. I’ve been to tons of his live shows, his music always touches my heart and played a small part in helping me get out of a toxic relationship (read more here.) Today he released a new single called Who We Are and you should run,…
