The Simple Life.

It’s Monday.

Blah, blah, blah.

I got a massage over the weekend.

It. was. awesome.

Just what I needed.

It’s the only time I don’t really care about being nude is when it’s for a massage.

I just go to my calm place and zen out.

I’m a simple girl.

I like loose curls, baseball caps, chuck taylor’s, cowboy boots, chambray shirts, and natural makeup.

You will never find me wearing high heels that compromise my walking gait and give me blisters or wearing eye shadow so dark that it looks like I got hit with a baseball.

There is a time to go glam…and that’s when I break out the glitz.

But day in and day out…I’m simple.

I like simple food.

Like banana bread.

Let’s throw a chocolate swirl in the middle of it and call it fancy.


I’m like banana bread.


It’s clean-cut and to the point…no frills or gimmicks.


But every once and a while, you can throw some stuff up in it and make it GLAMOROUS.


Hence that chocolate swirl up in it.


It’s also super delicious w/ a glass of cold milk.


That’s as adventurous as it gets.
