I've had my shih-tzu, Ireland, for over two years but I just noticed that when she lays down, the coloring of her fur resembles the shape of a heart! The reason I never noticed was because when she's upright, her darker fur extends onto her back. When she lays down for naps or sleep, the line of her back creates the illusion that the fur is heart-shaped! She's such a sweet little girl so I just love this. When I'm laying in bed and look down at her, I only see the heart! So precious :)

Now Playing: "Any Day Will Do Fine" by Michael Kiwanuka

New Music: Michael Kiwanuka

When I took a close look at the lineup for this year's Lollapalooza that I will be attending in August, I instantly fell for the sounds of Michael Kiwanuka. He's a British soul artist with one of the best voices I've heard in a long time. His music reminds me a lot of Ben Harper or a modern day Otis Redding but with its own unique level of charm. Michael's debut album, Home Again is now available and he will be touring the U.S. to support it. I definitely suggest checking him out. I have a feeling he's about to get huge.

I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
