We are the women we have been waiting for.

Last night, Oprah Winfrey was awarded the Cecil B. de Mille Award at the Golden Globes. She is the first black woman to receive this award, and no one of any colour is more deserving in my opinion. Her speech was inspiring, motivating and thought provoking. I found myself sobbing while listening- each word like a breath…

No Words.

Have you ever made a decision on a whim? Have you seen an event on Facebook, and decided to attend it that same day? Or decided to stop at the market that you were passing to treat yourself to a solo lunch date? I am still learning the concept of self-care and what that looks…

I did a thing…

Have you ever walked through the door at the end of a long day or week feeling utterly exhausted and defeated, trying to remember who you are, what you love, and who you want to be? Same. So I did a thing… I’ve learned a lot about myself in the last two years. I have…

International Women’s Day!

  It’s International Women’s Day! Yay, to all you wonderful women out there! Feminism- Why is it that this word is associated with man-hating? It’s turned into a dirty word; one men and women are afraid of. Sure, not ALL men and women fear it, but feminism is a word that connotes a wide array…

Welcome! Welcome!

Hi Guys, welcome! Welcome back, welcome to first timers, welcome! I have been wanting to come back for months but I just don’t know how to start, I feel like a lot has changed in my word since last year. Maybe I have just changed. The very best way I can describe it as I…

All Natural -poo! Just kidding, shampoo.

I have fallen off the face off the blog word. I needed a little break -I too am human and get the winter blues and in ruts where I don’t want to do anything more than the minimum and I find that my job takes all of me sometimes, leaving very little to be creative…

Christmas and long after

Ahhhh, now that Christmas is over I sit here reflecting. I’ve decided Christmas is so much better with little kidlets around. We had my nephew this Christmas and it was amazing! He made the whole day -he is so smart and inquisitive: looking and inspecting everything. We went to my parents first thing in the…

One whole year!

Wow, I have had Scarlet’s Letters for a whole year! How exciting! I remember when I first told my Husband I wanted to start a blog, his response was “Why do you want to start a blog? Blogs are for pompous assholes who think people give a shit about what they have to say.” Alrighty…

Mustard for the Win

I am simply in love with this colour! Is is fair to say I love the colour mustard? For someone who grew up refusing to eat mashed potatoes unless they had mustard on them I think so! My momma bought this scarf for me while I was sick and dropped it off at work for…

Copy Cat -Meow!

My girlfriend Share-Bear sent me this photo saying that she felt I should “rock” this outfit -as it was very much me! I couldn’t agree more -so here is my Copy Cat outfit. Unfortunately my photographer fell asleep on me. I often feel because I live in a small town that my outfits go to…

Dressing for the weather, whether it’s warm or not.

I switched up photographers, and I couldn’t be happier. Women are just so much better at this than men. Prime example, I asked this lovely lady if she would take a few pictures -as I know I have been slacking on my posts- and she replies with this… “Okay, first thing first, you might want…

One Year Celebrations!

A whole bunch of one year celebration this month! My Husband and I just recently celebrated our one year anniversary as well as our Nephew’s first birthday! What more can a girl ask for! Life is good! 🙂 We went out of town after celebrating our nephews birthday on Saturday to go for a delicious…
