Saving Bats

    Last week, Chris and I found a bat on the ground that couldn't take flight. It was around midnight, but I still insisted on calling a wildlife rescue center to tell us what to do.  We placed a towel next to the bat as instructed, and the so tiny/dead-like bat stretched out his wings and tiny arms pulling himself into the towel that we then hung on a tree for him to climb up.
   My heart was full. 

   Apparently they tend to fall off trees from the heat in summer, and once on the ground they cannot take flight. I guess this summer is just too much for them.

   I thought May was already the hottest Florida would get this year, but honestly I wasn't expecting late June to boost up the heat. I'm glad for airy dresses like this one, to endure this sky rocketing temperatures. 

I understand you bat, I do.

Once again I'm starting to miss the brunette days. It doesn't help looking at old pics that make you wish you never dyed it, EVER. Although I love the blonde, there's nothing like your own natural + low maintenance hair. 
September of this year I may go back. We will see.

I'm into this pair of 'ripped knees + ripped ankles' jeans. They have become my staple.
I always go for black jeans, and this destroyed black denim takes it to a whole different level. Also it gives my regular black jeans a break. I guess I can wash those now. [Just kidding!]

I'm still here

It seems like I almost forgot all about this blog and this kimono. This pictures have been here all saved up and ready to go, but I just couldn't get myself to write a post.
I've been in such a bad mood because of back and neck pains. But thanks to my acupuncturist, I'm getting better and I'm having to constantly remind my slouchy posture to sit and stand up straight. Believe me is not an easy, nor painless feat. 

In other news, this past Sunday was the first of many shows my friends and I [The Anchor Collective] will be playing. We released our Ep months ago and now we are finally starting to play at different venues; including a fun mini road trip to Tampa in July. 
Oh yeah, we are stocked!


P.S. Look us up on Itunes- The Anchor Collective [The Homeward Ep]

The older I get, the more I find myself wanting to travel + explore.

A few days back my friends and I, started talking about the age 30. Not that we are all there yet, but late 20's means you are getting closer. 
Suddenly it was like opening a can of worms, as the questions started to unfold,


           -"HAVE I LIVED?!"... -"HAVE I DONE IT ALL?"...


...and just like that, the bucket list emerged... 


Chris and I are planning a vacation later this year. So far I know it will involve a cabin in the woods, seeing waterfalls for the first time, exploring + taking pictures; lots of pictures. 
We've always done weekend vacations to Orlando, but not a long vacation since our honeymoon. So I'm happy to say that here's to planning a fun adventure before I'm 30. And of course, adding  a check on that bucket list.

Wynwood's Weathered Wall

A town, not so close to home, has some of the prettiest background walls. We came across this one in Wynwood by Miami. If only this wall was on my side of town. It would probably be on every blog post, I assure you.

I have a love for weathered walls. Something about the dirt like art on a wall, the stains from the rain over the years, the peeling of the paint that creates a variety of greens, or just an unfinished wall. 
I'm thinking of recreating a weathered wall on Chris's and I bedroom, when we own our own place. It'll probably make more sense when it's done and I get to show you. But until then you can call me crazy.


P.S. Alliteration points on that tittle. Where is my English teacher? #goldstar

Fancy Dessert

It's way too hot in Florida to wear a long sleeve top. But I somehow managed the quick walk from the car to the theater, where the A/C hits like a winter in all its glory.

I love this huge bag my mom gave me. And for situations like movie dates, my husband loves it the most. And he sure lets me know so, not by carrying it, but by stuffing the Mary Poppin's bag with all the goodies. 
Maybe next time I'll make him carry it. 

After the movies, I had a craving for what I like to call a fancy dessert. Not just any dessert, it has to be amazing. We ended up at Grand Lux. Peach hand pies and a glass of some delicious merlot wine?  
That my friends, is a fancy dessert.
