Looking Back | 2015 Photo Diary

Dear Future, I am ready.

As I look ahead, I welcome a new year filled with new artwork, challenges, loves, accomplishments, ambitions and great expectations. Thank you for your continued support and kind words... it means everything to me! I promise to bring exciting things to the table. 

It's been a strange and wonderful time, packed with a veritable rollercoaster of experiences, joys, hardships, and unexpected expressive journey's. I won't lie, the ride has been jarring. And the devastating impact of the massive flooding in my area currently affecting families, local businesses, homeless animals, and our community as a whole, doesn't exactly help matters. And since I'm kinda trapped here... no celebrations tonight.
There will be repeat episodes of 'You're the Worst'. Also, wine.  

However, on a brighter note...I've accomplished some incredible things this year that I never knew were possible and waded through moments seemingly impossible. There are certain aspects - relationships, people, thoughts - I have silently nurtured that now, for my own happiness, I must set free in order to move ahead and grow as an individual. I'm not even who I am, yet. 

Show me what ya got, 2016, because I'm excited, anxious, and hopeful... I'm ready for new chapters in this thing called life.

Here's to loving ourselves better. Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
Love, Bella

The Leather Satchel

When Gail from The Leather Satchel Company contacted me with the amazing opportunity to choose a satchel of my choice to review, keep, and love forever I practically fell out of the chair. I'd been lusting after one of these gorgeous bags for the longest time, because while it may sound a bit unconventional, I thought it perfect for gallivanting about the sculpture park with my trusty writing supplies  swinging idly at my side. So like a springboard into the sea of opportunity, I leapt at the idea of writing about how much I adore the vintage aesthetic and sinuously detailed structure that creates an effortlessly downtown sophistication.
A family company since the late 1960s, The Leather Satchel Company strives for high-quality standards that are evident down to the stitch by their meticulously crafted leathers. What's even more amazing about these "quintessentially British" satchels is the assortment of available colors (dying over neon pink) and the 5-year artisan …
