St. Pete Murals

St. Petersburg has become a colorful place with urban murals popping up all over the Warehouse District, downtown and Grand Central areas. I've seen a few just driving by and for a while, I wanted to go scout for them. Many are painted on walls behind buildings and in between alleys. So I'll be out hunting for them and sharing in this new series :)

 Found on Central Ave between 4th and 5th street.

Over the Weekend: Absolution

Nothing probably feels better than a lightened spirit. A readjusted focus means bringing back some things I've forgotten about or neglected over the past few months. So I've let go of negative energy and circumstances alike to find more ways to fill my time up with creativity.

Thanks to Visit St. Pete Clearwater and Hubbards Marina and some friends, I had the opportunity to join others on a sunset cruise out of John's Pass. Being a tourist in your own city can be pretty fun.

sometimes it's not all it's cracked up to be

It's been a long week, guys. Some days seem like the best days, like rainbows are lighting the sky and a red carpet is being rolled out wherever you go. Not this week. For me at least. I seem to be attracting a lot of inconveniences as of late, including a dead car battery and a blown tire on the way home from work. But I am glad it's Friday and this weekend marks the end and a beginning of a new week. I am always hopeful that it'll be better than the last, and I am preparing for it to be!

Anyways, since my week started off not as I would've liked, I made it a point to take pictures of things that made my day. It's good practice to see the good in non-ideal situations. 

Optimism. It keeps the dream alive.

Monday: Cat cuddles
Tuesday: Dinner with good company
Wednesday: Blown tire... but a good soul willing to help
Thursday: A reminder to keep spirits high

Summer bag essentials

I've got a few things that need to be in my bag at all times this summer: 

- My small beaded wallet because these days, I am trying to carry less.
- Beloved backup charger because while I don't need my phone, I also need it.
- Powder and lip colors because a girl needs options
- Mosquito spray because I'm prone to bites

Around the apartment

Pillows in disarray from couch-potatoing.
Entry way table rearranging. (it's also a table where I leave almost everything)

I really need to get more art for my walls.
