Sexy Little Black Dress from Rip and Rose Vintage


Vintage clothing is coming back in a big way and I can definitely see why!  If you find that perfect piece for you, then you have the chance to own and wear something that’s very unique, probably of higher quality than modern made clothing, and is something that has a really neat history behind it, even if you don’t know anything about the piece you buy.  It’s still fun to imagine :)  If and when I get married, I’m totally going to buy a vintage gown.  To me, that just makes more sense with my style, personal beliefs, and budget.

Comfortable, Trendy Pants from Nata Fashion


I stumbled across Nata Fashion during one of my many late night “window” shopping excursions on my phone.  It’s not often that you will find shops that sell handmade clothing, especially not in the US from my experience, and when I found Nata Fashion, I was so impressed with the style and quality of the clothing they were selling.

Hello Everyone!

I am a bit sad that today is the last day of summer, but it is a gorgeous day weather-wise and I couldn’t be happier.  The temperature and weather is literally perfect and living in Indiana, I don’t get to say that all too often.  I wish it was like this year round! Continue reading

Asking for Help – Please Share and Help Me Find My Sister

메간 Megan:

I don’t usually reblog anything, but this is kind of a special request from one of my followers. Jason is a really dedicated blogger and I’ve followed his blog since nearly the beginning. I found this story of him searching for his biological family touching and heartbreaking and can’t imagine how disheartening something like that must be. Check out his article on his search for his biological sister and mother. You never know, you might be one who knows how to connect them.

I have tried before to locate my sister. I have failed. Part of me wants to never try again. A lot of me hates that part of me. I will try again because there is always a chance she might see this. One can hope.

My name is Jason Chandler Cushman and I was born in Pusan, South Korea in 1981. I have a sister who is a few years older me. I believe she is probably 37 now and her name was Ahn Jung Hee, my birth mother’s name is Kim Ie Soo. Our mother left us on a street when we were young.

A Rough Day

Today was not a good day for me and my anxiety.  We had an epic battle.  There are sick people at work and while I like this people and consider them my friends, I can’t get past the illness.  I expected that she was coming back to work today, so I took an Airborne tablet and a multivitamin beforehand.  Even if those things don’t do anything, they make me feel better.   Continue reading
