I’ve been quiet for a little bit into this new year because of some hard personal losses and a need to recharge, but I’ll be back here next week. I’ll be back to doing what I do with some additional work here because I cannot be back to “business as usual”. I just wanted to pop in to make it clear that I will be part of the resistance and a voice that hopes to lift and empower and include. I also wanted to just give the details and support for the Women’s March on Washington: Portland for everyone to consider joining in.
Date: Saturday, January 21, 2017
Time: 12PM to 4PM PST
Place: Tom McCall Waterfront Park
in SW downtown Portland, Oregon
Pre-Rally for Children & Families:
11AM to 11:45AM PST — more HERE.
SEE MARCH ROUTE BELOW
PLEASE NOTE: This is a fully inclusive event. All members of the community are welcome and encouraged to attend. This is a peaceful march where you can come as you are, bring signs, chant, and unify. Bring your intersectional feminism, voice of dissent, belief in ethics and the Constitution, and your hopes for our civil rights, for our civil liberties, and hopes for country and the world. Dress comfortably. Wear shoes you can walk for miles in. Bring water. Bring a snack. Be alert. Have a plan to and from. Hear the wonderful speakers at the rally and thank the march organizers! ♥ ♥ ♥
Hello! Here are 25 books that I have and love, want, or just think would be lovely gifts. Unintentionally, all but two of these titles are by women, and, I guess, that’s just where my heart is right now. Take care and be kind to yourself — we’re going to need all our strength and to be in tip-top shape in mind and body for 2017. Happy Holidays, everyone! ♥
P.S. See some good self-care gift ideas for you and your best ladies.

YAY! Today we are so happy to celebrate the season with a Tata Harper Skincare giveaway! One lucky person will win a $300 shop credit to spend on whatever they’d like in Tata’s dreamy shop.

Some of my current standbys are the Very Naughty Volumizing Lip & Cheek Tint, the Resurfacing Mask (the honey-infused version smells AMAZING!), the Moisturizing Mask (helps SO MUCH in our very dry house), the Concentrated Brightening Essence (using 2x a day — LOVE), the Boosted Contouring Eye Mask, the Be True Sheer Lip Treatment, the Be Adored Rosy Lip Treatment, and ALL the Aromatherapy Treatments.
