Trying my Hand at professional Clothing

Even in my previous career I didn’t have to dress professionally! This whole professional dressing thingy at 41 is interesting, I’ve always wanted to own a power suit, I’ve figured that would be my present to myself upon completing my accounting degree. Not long ago I went to a clothing swap and got some awesome new clothes, including some professional wear. Today I tried my hand at dressing all professional-like…it feels good!





Date Night!

So, I’ve never seen the Reverend Horton Heat before, I know, it’s a a terrible thing. My boyfriend is a huge fan and has never seen him before either so I bought us tickets as a surprise to him! I’m excited as we have never been to a show together and we both desperately need a night out….I’m also going to wear a corset for the first time in a long time, yay!

Lunch Break

Earlier this week it was like a monsoon, and now it’s sunny and beautiful out. I find the weather in New England even more unpredictable than my home of many years, Vancouver, BC.  I’m certainly not complaining about the sunshine though, I meditated and talked to my best friend….egad, being so far away from him is hard sometimes!




Boston Dharma Punx

Yesterday I visited Boston Boston Dharma Punx for the first time to meditate, it was incredibly healing. I’ve been meaning to go for close to two years and have found a million reasons not to. I knew it would be good for me but my anxiety kept getting in the way. Thankfully I have made a new friend who has meditated since he was 13 and willingly let me drag him along….needless to say I am grateful. I feel much more at peace today….methinks this will be a regular part of my self care routine from now on.dharma_punx_by_blackredroses

Back to the Grind

I had a lovely four day getaway to Vermont, it was a much needed break after finishing classes for the semester. Mixed weather, but having living in  a very rainy city for most of my life this isn’t really an issue for me! Lots of yummy food grilled over a fire, sweet sleep-ins, snuggles, the smell of fresh cut grass and sunshine went  a long way to rejuvenating my soul!
