The Pinnacle and Pants d’jour


Firstly, I want to send out into the land of blogosphere Lovelies, an enormous thank you to Saray, Fashion Dreamer, and Sera-louise for thoughtfully tagging me.
Cyber hugs all around!
In other world news, while sipping coffee over my usual laptop garnish, I was contacted by the Editor of Writer’s Digest. A paragraph of black letters and a millisecond later, I was a finalist in the 77th Annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition. A week later, still unsure of my respective category, the certificate finally arrived… and as if by some serendipitous act from the writing otherworld, I’d been one of the lucky chosen (from more than 17000 entries) to receive an Honorable Mention in the Children’s/Young Adult Fiction category!

It doesn’t take much to make me happy, but in these moments of near psychotic jubilation… my only recourse is to instigate something I like to call, Shopper’s Delight. And while the blustering winds and semi-damp weather strong-willed this outfit, I felt an obligatory need to tout my skinny jeans… my pants d’jour.


Alongside this flannel little number, let’s be honest, these hybrid heels with their ridiculously vertical 6-inch vaults, of course made my prophecies of vertigo much easier to achieve.


Heels, Zinc. Blazer, vintage. Cuffed skinnies, Guess.

Cherokee | Drawing Progress

As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”

New Drawing ▲The Main Light

It's always exciting to share new artwork, especially after spending hours, days and sometimes weeks mapping through imaginative ideas and all those billowing clouds of charcoal dust. Through this much-needed experiment of breaking the boundaries of my comfort zone, I'm anxious to develop as an artist... and in the same thought, I know that growth takes time. Until then, I'll keep taking small steps towards something bigger.
The Main Light, is the second drawing in a new collection I've been diligently creating. Don't forget to look back on the first piece, Silent Forest, as well as thesneak peek I shared the other day!
