Flint water crisis

      About an hour away from home lays the city of Flint, MI. Detroit's water and sewerage department's aging pipes began to leach lead, corrupting the water supply. 

      The dark blue dot is where I reside. Flint, the lighter shade.

       The issue has gone into federal hands. Hilary Clinton plans to take a visit for an additional helping hand. No matter my political views I feel she's showing a big heart, and motivation to help our country. That's women for you

      Between 6,000 - 12,000 children were found with high levels of lead in their blood. Public health hazard could result in an intense outbreak of an atypical pneumonia. Pregnant women and children are still required to drink bottled water. Though the city claims only one home is currently affected after action was taken. 

      This has been going on since April of 2014! It wasn't until recently the state took action. My initial thought was a possible terrorist attack. For all we know it very well could be, as the risk of public panic would rise if told "the truth". This hasn't been stated by any officials but simply my conspiracy theory.

      My thoughts go out to those affected, worrying, and dealing with financial issues from the outbreak. The outbreak that should have been handled two-years ago

Hula hoop progress | February sunshine

Finally another hula hoop progress video! 
Watch. Criticize. Comment
This was taken the first or second of this month. It's amazing how beautiful the weather is for February! On the contrary, it's rather windy with snow beginning to fall finally. If only I had my own personal dance studio...

I'd love to hear if any parts lost your attention, grasped your attention, and any other feedback.

Let's smile truthfully

      Dial soap now comes in Hello Kitty scent? Yes please. Looks beautifully in my bathroom. Alongside my dead fish soap holder.

      I don't touch politics, but this...

      As Audrey Hepburn once said, "Happy girls are the prettiest". Apparently happy Hitlers are the prettiest too. I'd actually enjoy doing this as a photography and psychology experiment.

February hula hooping | Sapphire Sunset

      My new beautiful hula hoop
Purchased from The Hoop Smiths
      Using 5/8" Polypro sapphire sunrise hoop
     Look at the way it shines in the sunlight. Dancing has been part of my life since I was a toddler. A little ballerina. Eventually a teen ballerina. Now that I've discovered circus arts, hula hoop dancing has captured my heart. Yesterday's weather was gorgeous for early February. Therefore I spent some time outside dancing (of course)!
      Here's a few shots to share

      I'll be sure to share a video update soon!

An apple a day

      "An apple a day keeps anybody away if you throw it hard enough"

     Having an iPhone 6/6s for a week then shattering the screen is the best! Said nobody ever. My man and I took a trip to the closest Apple Store to fix my new baby. Located at Partridge Creek outdoor mall. Both of us had never been to the huge corporation's retail shop before. We assumed to walk into something like seen on South Park

      No super power forces used at the actual Apple Store. Also, they wore all red. Not blue.

      It was packed with customers! 'nam flashbacks of the Sprint store were shortly interrupted by a worker. While you wait they set you in front of a Mac computer that I was too intimidated to touch because I'd assume it's $2568863578. 

      Within 15-minutes I was in and out. Seriously. However I had to wait an hour for them to repair my screen. So we killed time browsing a store with art crafted by Michigan artists (mainly in the Metro Detroit area). Ended up leaving with an iron on patch. They sell undies with the same saying that I plan to go back for.

      For myself, a Sesame Street inspired Detroit magnet. Fancy the area code replacing the "123". What ever happened to Sesame Street, anybody still see it on? 

      Print shown below magnet can be found on Etsy by Dethpsun

      While browsing Partridge Creek, you'll run into people with their dogs. Amazes me you can't smoke legally indoors anymore, but a dog is welcome inside. 

      Do you use Apple products?

OOTD gone horribly wrong

While attempting an OOTD post, I couldn't get past picture two.

"Wait why do you need me to get you at certain angles!?"
- The boyfriend
Jealousy at its best

He wouldn't finish the shoot. Side note, he does hate this outfit as he claims it's "too 90's". The pictures that actually came out didn't show my outfit fully. As you can see above, he snapped a slick shot of my frustration.

The necklace I'm wearing is one of my wrapped healing stones. Wish i could share a better quality pic as planned..My cousin got me into the joy of making jewelry with healing crystals. He supplied the stone I'm wearing, and I made my first wire wrap pendant. I'm soon to open my Etsy shop with many to choose from! 

These adorable Hello Kitty moccasins I wore in an OOTD last year for eShakari . Still rocking them! They were a present from my step-dad Christmas 2014. 

There you have it. My madness in an OOTD gone wrong.

Avoiding the housewife life

I'm actually proud I didn't jump into college after highschool. I'm actually afraid I'll one day just be a housewife. Currently I'm a part-time at home babysitter. I adore the two little girls as much as my man. They think he's Mickey Mouse probably because of his hair line. I'm happy with my job but wish it was more scheduled. 

I spend most of my time alone at home and drive myself insane! With my psych issues it's difficult even visiting my cousin or grocery shopping without all my medication. Did I mention I don't drive? 
Living the lonely life

My man fixed the loving room walls making enough space for when I babysit or hula hoop. Chalkboard wall, coloring table, and use our spare room as our living space. I can't explain how much I appreciate him for helping me. What's in the future though? When I have children my goal isn't to be a housewife. I'm going to succeed with my performing arts. I realized keeping one active goal at a time is the best way to go about success. 

My goal right now is to practice driving enough to take my road test and get my drivers license.

What's your goal?
