Vino Rosso per Uno

Here we are again the time of the year some of us dread, while others love to love. Valentines day is tomorrow and I know there's plenty of us out there who will be spending it alone or unhappy. Let's be honest here, not everyone has someone they can gush about to friends and family, or some of us don't want to have anyone at the moment because, well we want to be selfish and care for ourselves. This post is dedicated to those people those of us who are being selfish at the moment and are worried about ourselves more than a holiday that gives people an excuse to make others feel a little bitter.

I honestly cannot count myself in that group of people who are bitter at this time of the year, it's not who I am, although I was in that position a year or two ago I am now nowhere near feeling that way. Valentines day this year is a happy one for me, and what do I  mean exactly by that? I am happy with myself, this past year I had a lot of alone time to work on myself, be more independent, I love me and the woman I am becoming. Although I have reason to celebrate valentines day I am instead choosing to have that mind space to celebrate self love. We all feel that this is a day to celebrate someone else in our lives, and although there's nothing wrong with that I feel it is very important for us to remember that love begins with us, and we should nurture that in some way. Whether you're spending this Valentines day alone or in good company enjoy a drink or three and remember that in order to be happy you must love yourself first. So to you in advance I say Happy Valentines Day.

West Texas Road Trip: Big Bend & Marfa

                                                Photo Cred: Alonzo Williams Jr.

West Texas is full of long stretches of road surrounded by rocky mountains. At sunrise the sun lights up the horizon, with the brightest hues of orange and sometimes purple. With every mile you drive the road takes you further away from home, but closer to wonder and excitement of the unknown. The star kissed sky in Big Bend is breathtaking.

What's on my Playlist

Hey there lovely people! I am back with another What's on my Playlist post and this week I have a list of ten new songs that I just cannot stop listening to. If you like music, and variety in it as much as I do read on. Don't be afraid to click the links below which will bless your ears with beautiful sounds!

                                                             Magic - Coldplay
I love this song because, it has a calm vibe. It talks about falling in love in a different way than other songs do. Chris Martin never fails to impress with his lyrics.

5 Favorite Sweaters To Have This Winter

                                               Cyrus Ribbed Cowl Neck Sweater

I love this sweater because of the neckline, and that you can layer a dress under it or wear it half tucked into a pair of trousers, or jeans like pictured above.

Clouds At Last ; Urban Outfitters Dress

Ever search for that perfect dress that makes you feel good every time you wear it without fail? I found that in this dreamy flowing bell sleeve dress from Urban Outfitters. When I got this dress it wasn't on sale, but after trying it on I just couldn't leave without it, it fit like a glove.

Brandie Freely; Truths and Freedom

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing local author Brandie Freely on her new book Truths and Freedom. After finally lining up our schedules for the interview, she let me in on some insight that inspired it, as well as if there will be a continuation. The book retells stories that have shaped her life and made her into the person she is today. Check out our interview below to find out more about her and the book.
