I'm always struggling to find a pillow that helps me get a good night's rest. I deal with acid reflux and that means I often can't sleep for more than an hour at a time. This style pillow advertised it would help with my acid reflux symptoms... and it has! I'm able to sleep more and in longer periods.

My little family has our own family bucket list that includes all the things, travel-related, that we want to do together.
One item on that list: visiting all of the geographical regions.
Our last region we need to visit together is the Middle East. We're planning a 2024 trip, most likely.
Comment with some of your bucket list travel must sees!

I've had quite a few requests for consulting throughout the years. I've opened up some consulting times that work with my current schedule.
Interested in my assistance? Schedule a consultation first and we'll get started on this partnership. 🙂

My Mother's Day weekend was absolutely perfect and I'm grateful for this little one who made me a mama. And to her sibling who we sadly weren't able to bring into this world, I miss you and I'm grateful for you, too.

To all the mamas, people who took on the role of mom, and to the mamas who are waiting on their baby, the mamas who lost their baby, or perhaps your baby never came... I love you and I see you.
I'm working on some blogs about my time in Antarctica and I'd love to know what you guys want to read about. Do you have questions about the itinerary I chose? Or perhaps you want to know what I recommend packinging? I also know photography gear is really challenging to fine tune, so would it be helpful to see what I brought? Perhaps you have other questions or concerns I can address?
Let me know in the comments.
Folks have been asking me about where I get my hair done, so I put together a quick video for you. @geeksgetglam does my hair in Austin, TX. She is an award-winning vivids specialist, and she is also such an awesome person.
For maintenance in between visits to see Danielle, i use @overtonecolor. I also limit how much I wet wash my hair. Additionally, I almost always let my hair air dry.
It has always been a dream of mine to set foot on all the continents. At a young age, I made this bucket list that seemed impossible. It included all of these things I wanted to do before I was 40.
The sad truth, though, is I didn't think I'd make it to 40. I created a list of things to accomplish with this understanding that was all the time I had. My mother attempted suicide multiple times before she was 40, and I also had that hopelessness in me. I wasn't sure I'd have the strength to overcome it.
These dreams are part of what has fueled my healing journey. Dreams of travel. Dreams of partnership. Dreams of family.
I used to dream to escape reality, but little by little, as these dreams have come true, I now dream to manifest my future.
Here's to dreaming...and here's to living.
New nails by @pretty_nail_gang. I asked for spoopy Scream, and she delivered. These are extra long, sculpted stilettos. She did encapsulation, hand painting, and sculpted multiple 3D elements, including the Ghostface Kitty and the small gummy bears.

Travel is so very personal, so it made sense to have a space where I can share content inspired and curated from my personal interests and my daily life. For me, this wanderlust is my lifestyle. Ever since I was a young child dreaming about the possibility of exploring the world, it was always my goal to see as much as I could. Drink it all in.

Disney Parks generally have a fairly strict no costume policy for adults (except around Halloween and Christmas time). Disneybounding is a way to put together an outfit inspired by your favorite characters while still being respectful of the Disney Parks rules. Real talk, it’s a super fun way to show your Disney geekdom while visiting…
My love of costumes feels like it’s always been a part of me. I even started cosplaying at a fairly young age. I didn’t really understand at the time that this was what people call cosplay and instead just felt a calling to do my very best to really embody a character. That love of cosplay…
I’ve had different health challenges for as long as I can remember. When I got into college and really had to manage my own health care, things took a turn for the worse. That would be the start of what would turn out to be a very long journey trying to find a medical professional who…
Before traveling to Iceland for the first time, we were so excited to learn more about its history. Food culture is really important in my family, so we especially love delving into the food history of every place we visit. Iceland was particularly fascinating to learn about due to a combination of its geographical location, its isolation…
For most of my adult life, I have called myself “half Asian/half white”. It felt like the most accurate depiction of “what I am”. Obviously, that’s ridiculous, and my exact genetic makeup couldn’t possibly represent me as a whole human being, but I think it was so important to say this because my Asian identity…
I’m sure you’ve started to see a trend when it comes to my travels. I collect local art from every new place I visit. I figure I’ll one day be able to create a gallery of adventures. Buying local is a huge part of that wanderlust. When I’m experiencing a new community, I want to…
Fashion matters a lot to me. My fashion is a big part of how I express myself. And while I don’t have the luxury of bringing my entire wardrobe with me when I travel, I’ve figured out some tips to help express my fashion everywhere I go.
Whenever I travel to a new place, one of the first things I research is local cuisine and food history. I’m a foodie, so I love exploring the food culture of a future destination. When visiting Iceland, I was worried that I’d find myself struggling for things to eat. Man, was I wrong. Here are…
