Happy Mon(Daè)! I can’t believe we’re more than halfway finished with 2017! It feels like we’ve been in the twilight zone or something but life goes on. I recently took a weekend getaway and it left me really motivated and refreshed. I’ve been doing my freelance graphic designing and picked up another freelance writing client. Life has me content and I have to remember that it’s okay to stop and smell the roses in between goals.

I was on the fence about this dress but Amazon comes through! This is my second dress I’ve found on Amazon for under $20 and I’m impressed.

Little Mix’s “Power” sounds like a strong contender to be in rotation this summer. It gives me an old Christina Aguilera “Can’t Hold Us Down” vibe.
There’s no doubt in my mind that DJ Khaled knew what he was doing when he put Bryson Tiller and Rihanna on an old Carlos Santana beat. This is the soundtrack to summer 2017.
Everyone that knows me know that I’m a big Nashville fan. Lennon Stella from the show sung the heck out of this song “Saved.” It gives me chills every time I hear it.

Raven Symone is back and young and old are going to gather to see her new Disney Channel series. I think I may like her more here than on The View. Good move Raven. Good move!
