An American in Paris: Day 7

Thursday, January 4th, 2018 I was posting my Paris recap blog posts very regularly for a while there.

I couldn’t hit “Publish.” What it boils down to is this…I didn’t want theContinue reading “An American in Paris: Day 7”

An American in Paris: Day 5

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018 Travel Journal Continued… “Before coming to Paris, I was starting to feel, or rather have felt for a while, like I lost my adaptability, my spontaneity.

Bon Appétit…Literally!!

One year ago, almost to the day, I gave up weighing myself. It was as much a gift to my mind as it was to my body. Contrary to what you might think, the devil does not live in the details. He lives in the numbers! Especially when it comes to a woman’s weight. AndContinue reading “Bon Appétit…Literally!!”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 14

Day 14: Aladdin Aladdin is one of my all time favorite Disney movies. It’s neck and neck with Lion King for me. I must have watched it over 1,000 times as a kid and still continue to watch it as an adult (though since the death of Robin Williams it’s been much harder to watchContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 14”

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 9

Thrift Store Cosplay Day 7

Day 7: Rapunzel from Tangled Today’s thrift store cosplay is a minimalist version of Disney’s Rapunzel. It’s more of a bounding, if you will. For those of you who have never heard of Disney bounding…look it up. It’s a simple way of representing your favorite characters at work, at Disney…basically anywhere you are, and stillContinue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 7”
