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…

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…

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…

Equestrian Style

Sometimes outfits have a funny way of coming together, much like this one. I certainly didn’t plan to look like an English Rider yesterday morning. Ooops, but also awesome! I had a cute boy critique my outfit, saying the red belt threw it off. I disagree I think the red belt made the outfit!   I…

Monday Brunch

I had full intentions of doing a blog post this morning. It seems that time has gotten away from me the last few days. I ended up spending my morning having brunch with wonderful friends. What more could you ask for out of a Monday! I didn’t assist at all; my wonderful husband made brunch while…

Conversations

Happy Wednesday All! My husband and I are hilarious, I don’t know that others would agree but I think we’re funny. I often wonder if we’d be thrown into an insane asylum if people could see/hear us on the daily. We often talk in accents, which my sister in-law has a love/hate feeling for. I…

Secrets Out

My secret is out! I hadn’t really told anyone about my blog; I told a few of my close girlfriends when I first started it and they’ve been amazingly supportive. Of course, there’s one in every crowd and Sharon is my ‘push’ friend; I mean that is the best possible way. She takes absolutely no…
