  • December Weekly Layouts

    Initially, I thought I’d be taking off from Atlanta early in the A.M. and home by afternoon to do something fun and witty. Instead, there was “winter weather” and since this is the South and they don’t do 4WD, I delayed and took off much later. So let me take this opportunity to show off […]

  • Don’t Be Self Helpless

    I am an anxious person.  With the combo of my personal life hitting some hard bumps last month and the routine “happy stress” of the holiday season upon us, I thought I’d take a moment to discuss the current self-help Lord and Savior that the internet has bestowed upon us unworthy influencer followers.

  • 2019 Planner Sticker Storage

    If you don’t know about the paper planner community, or you haven’t spent any amount of time listening to me wax poetic about stickers, none of this will make any sense to you. However, if you have strong opinions about matte vs vinyl and have a list of etsy shops with promo codes and which influencer gets you which sampler… you’ll understand.

  • The Recap Show

    2018 has been a long, strange trip. Personally, I feel like the entire year has been a series of slight slow inclines to reach a GREAT moment in my life, only to come swiftly crashing down in a fireball. And not the fun drinking one or the Pitbull one. As I’m dusting myself off from […]

  • 3 Years Post Kidney Failure

    A question I get asked a lot is “How are you doing?”. I hate that question. Nobody really wants more than a one word answer, and the truth is… it’s complicated. For the most part, I’m doing really well. Transplant is doing well. I’m moving forward in my life. I have a really cute cat.

  • The Magic of Glitter Shoes

    I bought the Kate Spade Keds.  I can hear the sighs and eyerolls already. “Of course you did, Kiwi… you’re basic af and your soul is made of black glitter.” It is true that this is very keeping with my aesthetic, and that if you were to summon me with a pentagram you would put […]

  • Disneyland Dreams

    I want to be a Disney Princess. I’ve wanted to be a Disney Princess my whole life. Even at almost 30 when you ask me what I want to be when I grow up, I will answer “Disney Princess”. When we went to Disneyland for Spring Break, it was for ME. I hadn’t been since […]

  • Daiso Japan Haul

    Seriously considered doing some cunning April Fools post. The thing is, I’m actually traveling back from vacation at the moment and don’t have the spare brain cells to be that cunning. What I do have is a bunch of stuff to show off.I just spent a week in Southern California, which was fantastic. Saw family, went […]

  • My Kidney Failure Story

    Today is Word Kidney Day. I’ve thought a lot about making this post and what exactly I want to say in it. Obviously this is a topic that is quite personal. Yesterday was my 9 month kidney transplant anniversary.  Being that it is quite an emotional topic still, I want to say the following and leave […]
