Capture the light ✨

Hi Friends!

With the release of 13 reasons why season 2, I needed to recharge my energy to clear my head. A show based on suicide ignite intrusive emotions for me. I strongly disagree with the 1st season, it was insipid. I hated it. The whole point of the show incoherently created shock value. At the end of the day, this show shouldn’t glamorize suicide. Now, with the release of season 2, they did an intro warning others to watch with an adult. They provide the suicide hotline at the end credits with every episode. Which brings me to my final thoughts on this: (I swear you won’t hear me complain more about this idiotic show) Logic’s song helped more people than this show will ever do for its audience.

Okay, sorry to go off on a tangent.

A well deserved hike, eased my mood. Nature hikes calm my soul. While going to the scenic point, Mark told me he felt so much mana in the forest. Mana means spiritual quality in Hawaiian. I was ecstatic, he finally immersed himself to the beauty of trees and nature.

In the video you see the tree that broke off but still extended itself and produced more leaves. Mother Nature graced herself upon us that day. She shown me that with this tree: No matter how many times life knocks you down, you have the power to create your own magic. You will grow to bigger and better things. The light shining through the leaves were just beautiful. I love when that happens.

Then in the ocean scene, there were 2 pygmy whales, feeding. The seagull would always follow wherever the whales were. You see it in a brief second they come up for air. We didn’t notice until the lady pointed it out. We were resting because of the hike. I didn’t pack proper shoes.

Anacortes just keeps revealing herself to me. The beauty and grace of this small town is captivating. I’ll be heartbroken when we move to base housing but at least it’s a 30 min drive away.

Love you to the moon & back,

📍Voodoo Doughnuts 🍩

Hi Friends,

Just for a TBT. Mark and I went to Portland back in August of last year for his cousin’s graduation. I also got to hang out with my niece, Jandie, her apartment is gorgeous! Obviously, we had to try the infamous Voodoo Doughnuts! Portland is known for their long lines. I feel like this day and age everything is a hype. I wanted to know if it was worth the wait.  The song I attached with this post reminds me of the show Portlandia. During my trip I would listen to it. Total Vibes!

My verdict: it was a 6/10. I mean the designs of the doughnuts are very eclectic, but taste wise, it’s alright. I’m a bland person who would settle for an original glazed doughnut. Mark however is knowledgeable in flavors and definitely a foodie. He majored in Culinary Arts before he joined the Navy.

His verdict: 7/10. He ordered the Captain Crunch doughnut, which is his favorite cereal. It was definitely an experience for him.

Love you to the moon & back,

📿Pandora Collection📿

Hi Friends!

I used to work at a boutique that sold Pandora and Alex and Ani jewelry. Today I wanted to share my Pandora collection, not everyone will have the same bracelet. It’s all catered to their unforgettable moments. If you don’t know what Pandora jewelry is, it’s bascially a charm bracelet. They also sell rings, earrings, and necklaces.

I have more Pandora jewelry, than Alex and Ani, because they are sterling silver. Sterling silver has great longevity, if you properly take care of it. I store my Pandora in a ziplock baggie to lock out air and moisture to prevent it from oxidation. If it does start to dull overtime, they sell a polishing cloth for only $5. But I always recommend the cleaning kits which are only $15.

Wow, the SA in me is coming out today to play! And slay! I’m not by any means putting Alex and Ani down, it’s just that I gravitate more towards Pandora because I have small wrists. Alex and Ani is one size fits all so I always feel like the bracelets will come off. I have the Harry Potter bracelets from Alex and Ani. I love that Alex and Ani is made here in the USA and by recycled metals.

Anyways, the size I wear for Pandora is 6.7 inches and for the essence line it’s 6.3. I only shopped their sales because it was better than my employee discount. The Alice in a teacup is a Disney Parks exclusive charm. Meaning you can only purchase it on Disney property. I got mines when I visited Walt Disney World.

I love my Pandora jewelry because a charm will take me to a special moment in my life. When I look down I smile because it holds special memories. The birthday card charm is very sentimental because I got it from my friends in Jacksonville. It was a birthday that I’ll never forget!

If you have any questions, just let me know in the comments. I’ve been working at the boutique for a year. They do have cute releases ever since I quit that job (my hubby got stationed in WA). I loved building bracelets for other people and creating the visual displays for each drop! 💖

💙Shades of Cool💙

Hi Friends!

Do you remember the brand American Apparel? Well, I used to love it so much for their riding pants. I actually have them in 2 colors. I know they filed for bankruptcy and they had a whole controversy behind the CEO. But the quality of the garment is impeccable. I had these pants for 6 years and they are still comfortable. No threads coming undone.

I decided to go with some black and white photos in here because I wanted to change it up. Vintage concept. Whenever I wear an off-the-shoulder top, I feel like I’m from the 70s. The stripes on my shirt is a motif that flows into my riding pants.

The accessories I’m wearing are from Pandora, I will post my Pandora collection soon. Maybe after this post. I just didn’t want to do 2 consecutive collections in my blog. I had to break it up with this outfit post.

I love you to the moon and back,


✨Crystal Collection✨

Hi Friends!

I love crystal healing and the metaphysical realm. My first crystal was a clear quartz from the 3rd grade, at the time I thought it was really pretty. Then in college my friend Jasmine was really into it and took me to a crystal shop. It suddenly turned into an obsession.

I personally believe it works for me, you put so much power into your beliefs that your mind can control anything. The power of your mind is an amazing feature. You have the will to harness the inner power of your being, that you’ll attract your manifestations in the waking life.

I’m a very spiritual person, so if I lost you, I’m sorry. It’s all about the law of attraction. If you think positively in your life, then you’ll see the positive energy. I’m not always positive, so meditating with my crystals keeps me centered and grounded.

Life is an amazing balance of good and bad. If life was always good, then you wouldn’t gain the knowledge from past lessons. Nothing is ever a mistake, everything that happens, is a valuable lesson. Remember that.

I’ve been in a funk lately that I needed to cleanse all my crystals and draw out negative energy from my life. While I was cleansing my crystals, I wanted to film my collection. Most of my crystals are gifts and some of the crystals that were in my collection I gave to my friends in Jacksonville. I never regift crystals because I believe it’s bad juju. I have duplicates, the more the merrier, it creates a home of harmonious energy.

Most of my collection are from a store called Where Crystals Rock, located in Hawai’i. They have a great selection and price range. The smaller tumbled stones are $3-5. Wands are $15-30+, depends on the mineral. I always wanted a copper wand, they say it’s great for facials.

If you go to a crystal shop by any chance just pick stones that call out to you, they’re most likely the ones that will help you. I believe the crystals call to you. You were drawn to them because you sensed its healing properties. You’ll be surprised which ones you’re drawn too. I was too! 😊

If you’re not really into it, the power of prayer is also powerful. I created this blog with the intention of sharing my life and beliefs. I’m not trying to pressure or sway you into thinking otherwise from your own. Thank you so much for reading and have a beautiful day. 💖
