It’s been a while since I’ve shared my random thoughts with you all, so let’s get this trainwreck started, shall we? Okay, full disclosure, there is no trainwreck. I just like the sense of drama that it promises, sort of like those clickbait videos on YouTube which make it seem like your favorite GRWM gal has just broken up with her adorable boyfriend, the one … Continue reading Random Thoughts
Let’s travel back to a few days ago… The sun is shining in the courtyard atrium. The restaurant, serving typical American fair, is bright and quiet. There I sit with two friends hungry and ready to order. I know what I want– the veggie burger. What I don’t know is how I want my burger done. That’s right, my server asks me how I’d like … Continue reading The Well Done Veggie Burger
One of the really simple things that makes me happy is waking up and laying in bed listening to the birds outside my window. Some chirp, some whistle, some screech. Some talk fast, some slow. I love to hear their variations. It got me thinking: How absurd it is to imagine one species of bird being jealous or envious of another bird’s song. I can’t … Continue reading The Birds Don’t Compare
Because I like to be a bit innovative with this blog, I decided recently as a tribute to awards season, to create my own first annual IWANNABEALADY Awards! First, I produced the awards.

I have failed so many times. Public failures. Private failures. I’ve been called a failure; I’ve called myself a failure. I’ve given up so many times. I’ve been energized, and I’ve watched my energy dwindle. I’ve fallen in and out of love with others and with myself. Do I trust myself? Honestly, kinda. Kinda is not the best answer by far, but it’s damn better … Continue reading Do You Trust Yourself?
The day before my boudoir photo shoot is the feeling beautiful pre-game show. I spend extra time exfoliating and applying natural oils. I drink copious amounts of water for days to ensure plump, hydrated skin. I pull out every piece of lingerie that I own. Silky, lacy, demure, racy; I try them all. I put on music, slip on some heels, dance in front of … Continue reading The Beauty of Boudoir, and Why Every Woman Should Do It
You’ve seen the women I’m talking about. I’m not one of them. I’m dragging myself along. Care to join me? It’ll be fun they say. Continue reading Yoga Vegan Hippie Women, and Me.
This year has been a bad one for my relationship with the gym, but I’m slowly getting back. I call it my journey back to fitness. Have you been slacking as well? Maybe you can get some ideas for getting back to your goals. Continue reading My Journey Back To Fitness
I must learn to love the fool in me – the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. –Theodore Isaac Rubin Being a lady doesn’t mean being perfect. It’s … Continue reading Love The Fool
