Sometimes being a good mom means knowing when to let go

A couple of weeks ago, I was feeling hopeful. I was under the impression that my dog could get better, all he needed was company… But then, we went back this weekend to my in-laws home, where he tried to crash into every single door by throwing the entire weight of his body against the…

Dog needs cat. Cat ignores dog.

That’s essentially dog and cat’s relationship in a nut shell. My dog developed some type of separation anxiety, which has slowly been tamed. It came to the point where we had to begin thinking about giving up my dog so that we wouldn’t loose both of them.  I don’t own my home. We live in…

Where to begin…

Well, I guess I’ll start by apologizing to yourself and to me. So many goals, so many ideas, and yet, I continue to fall short on all of them. A couple of months ago, I created a master calendar. I had deadlines for my designs, pictures, and posts. I was filled with excitement. Everything was…

Moving: Cat Edition

It’s officially been a month of being in our new home. It’s been chaotic. It’s been stressful, to say the least. But it’s also been rewarding to see my little ones adjust to their new lige.  It hasn’t been as easy as the videos I’d watched online about cats moving into their new home showed…

Miss Universe 2015

To be honest, I didn’t watch it. I stopped watching them about  four years ago? I don’t have cable. I probably wont have it until I have kids, if anything. I didn’t even know it was happening tonight. I did, however, find out about Steve Harvey’s mistake. How, you ask? Social media. Yes, that incredibly…

Trump’s Hatred as a Topic of Laughter

Today I was in the “less than 20 items” line at Walmart. The worst place to shop, but that you can’t help but go out of convenience. The line consisted of a Hispanic group, an African-American behind them, me, and an American couple. They were all middle aged individuals. Yes, the Hispanic lady was that…

Watching someone die on Facebook…

That was my story this weekend. I literally saw the story, the mourning, and the pain reflected all over my timeline. She was a coworker. She wasn’t a friend really, but she was a good human being. She was the type of person that made you smile because it was all positive vibes. She died suddenly…

Inspiration for Floral Collection

Designing clothes for cats is an interesting process. It’s not formal. It’s not standard. It’s simply organic. It might be because I’ve never received formal training, but it’s still fun and interesting every time. My inspiration varies within seconds. Sometimes it’s the fabric’s pattern, the fabric’s texture, or the accessory. For this particular collection, I…

My #FirstJob

It was as a housekeeping runner. It was one of those jobs you never imagine yourself doing. At least, I never did. I was starting college, after all. I ranked number six in my high school class. Surely there was someone interested in my abilities. And yet. No one was. So my mom talked to…

Cat Vomit.

(Yes, I’m talking about this. It was so hard to find proper tips on the subject.) The not so glamorous life of those humans owned by cats. A couple of days ago, I woke up extra early to work on my store. My home is still chaotic but I thought “Hey, maybe if I wake…

Backwards Departure

I distinctly remember the first day we walked into our new home. We walked in and stared at the enormous space we had to fill. We took in that fresh carpet smell. Took a couple of steps, and went through the hallway. We peeked into what would be my room. Talked about the placement of…

The Breadwinner Role

What does it mean? What types of associations does it have? Is it gender specific? And what’s so special about the word itself? Well, according to a quick Bing search, it’s “a person who earns money to support a family.” Please note, this does not denote a specific sex. Nor does it indicate gender. These…
