I can't remember the last time I didn't work for a week. Sure I've had "vacations" but I've always found myself working on them. Like taking conference calls in Disney World, checking spreadsheets in Greece and shooting look books and answering slacks on my staycation. And it's not just since I've been a boss lady. I worked full time and went to college. During my internship I applied and got into grad school- which meant starting my first job while also spending nights in school. So I'm doing something crazy... I'm taking a real vacation. I'm not posting for the week. No Instagram stories, no YouTube videos, no responding to emails, no blogging. Similarly I'm taking a vacation from my day job. No conference calls, no meetings, no jira tickets, no powerpoints. All I have to do it relax and explore the world. Sure I might go completely crazy, but I'm hoping that just maybe I'll remember how to relax. I'll still be capturing things from my trip, just with out the pressure of feeling I need to. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, so expect a love explosion next week.

I've been a little MIA recently. I've got a ton to do at work before I leave and I've been trying to get all the snuggles I can squeeze in with Data. He's figured out I'm leaving and has been a bit needy. Today he ran in fear when I played James Brown; it's like he's literally looking for any sign that his cushy gig is up. "Get up off that thing" is not a hip new age euphemism for "I'm giving you away to evil strangers," pup. You're my cuddle monster for always.

๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ‘€!!!! Seriously I know half of you don't want to see my janky make up attempts, but the funny thing is this account is for me. And you know what? I am really proud of these silly eyelids. It was not easy. But I did it! I Liza Frank rainbow fantastic-ed my eye ball covers. So I celebrate them. Even if it's just me, it's the most epic party of one ever.

In case anyone ever told you otherwise: love whomever you want. Love them loud. Smear that love all over the freaking place. Leave a trail of love whenever you go. Leave hearts in your footprints and warm fuzzies in your words. Because anyone who chastises you for who you love is choosing to take away from a world desperately in need of more. They're subtracting from the good while, baby, you're multiplying. You're not a problem, a disgrace or a blight. You're beautiful and special and everything that's right in the world. Love free. Love bold. Love more.

I'm a bird. A bird that spent her day at the pool drinking many drinks. A bird who felt exactly like a sexy mermaid for most of that time. A bird that's going to have film her Sunday spiel tipsy. A bird that avoiding taking her dog out by posting this candid image and ver ver thoughtful description. A bird who deep cleaned her whole apartment and deserved to get a little crunk. A bird who wonders if crunk is still a thing that the kids say. A bird who has kept said bird analogy alive way too long because beer and spirits don't mix well and apparently it's one of those things she should know by now but doesn't. I'm a bird guys.... #bikini #pool #drinks #swimming #swimwear #selflove #crunk #doyou #liveauthentic #happiness #plussize #psootd #curvy #sexy #mermaid

Sometimes I get lonely. I get angry. I get frustrated. I get confused. People let me down. I let myself down. I make mistakes I don't know how to fix. Some days I'm tired. I don't want to move. My apartments a mess. My life is a mess. I feel overwhelmed. I get anxious about how my life can no longer ever be private. I get concerned I'm not doing enough. That I need more hours, more work, more stuff. Some days I want to be in the cool club. I want to go to shiny events and carry glossy gift bags. Some days I want to fit in. Some days I feel scared. I feel worried. I feel not good enough. I feel like an imposter. A fake. A phoney. Some days I question every piece of myself and comb through my memories for an identity I temporary feel I don't deserve. Some days I look around and go how did I get here?
Some days I wake up laughing. Some days I find my own jokes hilarious and dance around to invisible music. Some days I talk to my dog like a person. I cook talking to an invisible camera like I'm Julia child. I drink wine and send Mary Kate and Ashley gifs to strangers. Some days I find hope all around me. Some days I dream. Of my next adventure. My next project. My next way to change the world. Some days I am confident. I am fearless. I know my worth. Some days I smile so big my cheeks get tired and giggle so much my stomach aches with happy pains. Some days I feel loved, cared for and welcomed. I see my journey and I am proud of the woman I've become, the lives I've changed and the integrity I've maintained. Some days I am content in the world I've created around myself.
Some days I have to choose happiness. Some days it chooses me.

It's easy to look at someone who has succeeded or done well and attribute it to luck. And in turn, be envious that you haven't been as fortunate. I do this all the time. I create this mental story that the other person's success is a mere reflection of happenstance. That had I been in the right place at the right time, exposed to the right things that I too would be at the same place. I do this because it makes me more comfortable. Then, I don't have to worry that I haven't worked or tried hard enough. I try to blame the universe for failing me, instead of looking at what I've still have left to improve. But I honestly look at my life, I've often found I've put so much energy into pursuing something not meant for me- that I wasn't passionate about. The truth is the majority people succeed because they find what they love and work hard. Acknowledging someone else's success, isn't admitting your own failure. No, instead it is a window into what's possible when you run full speed in the right direction of something you love.

Sometimes you just create things you are really proud of. This past weekend @simplybeusa put me to the challenge of styling clothes from their summer line into the perfect weekend getaway looks. And I had so much fun doing it. Hauls can get old, but here I got think about the perfect look for each activity and put together something that really felt born out of passion. I didn't realise how much I missed creating look books. I didn't realise I could meld my hectic travel life with fashion obsessiveness into such a delightful package. I forgot that fashion isn't just my hobby...it's my art. The end result I am so happy and proud of. This is the look that kicks it all off, which I call "Road Warrior." 90's edge melted on to a Saturday morning cartoons type of comfortable.

Sometimes drunk you orders a $110 fully sequined kimono and forgets. Then sober you gets it and is like "damn what am I going to do with this?" Sober you wants to return it because it is a totally frivolous and impractical purchase. So responsible, adult, sober you finally gets ready to mail it back- and thinks "maybe I should just take a couple quick photos in it just as a memory of it's awesomeness." It happens. Sober you finally gets what drunk you was going on about. You do NEED this. It's was MADE FOR YOU. So that's how I've come to own this full sequin, rainbow striped, totally heavy and impractical cardigan. Because I needed it. I simply needed it

I just can't not share this photo. It's just so us. I can't wait to share more magic next week, but I just had to share this one because of allllll the feels.

It's been a busy as hell weekend but I can't stop smiling about what I got accomplished. Sometimes hard work can be as invigorating as it is exhausting. So while I am tired, I feel so so tickled with myself. Basically I am living the evening like Stuart from Madtv (yougins google it, trust me), "look what I can do." Look what can I do indeed!
