Midweek Ramblings + Recent Purchases + Current Wishlist.




{A sneak peak at the location of one of my first photoshoots for the blog since moving to Vermont! Can't wait to share the full blog post soon. Follow me on social media @miss_alk!}

Ramblings:

  • Montreal for the evening: I shared a little bit about this on my social media last week, but I had a unique opportunity to go to Montreal last Thursday night! My work gave me and a guest of my choice last minute tickets to Chance the Rapper's Montreal show, and I didn't want to pass up the chance to visit the nearest major city to Vermont! (And cross the border for the night too- because let's be honest, that's pretty fun!) My friend Mercedes was able to change her Memorial Day Weekend schedule quickly and come up from DC to spend a few days with me and join me for the concert. We had a fun time road tripping up to Montreal and enjoying dinner before the show. Chance puts on a great show... I feel embarrassed saying this but I actually didn't know that many of his songs (despite the fact that I listen to a lot of rap!). But both of us still enjoyed the show. And this just makes me determined to get back to Montreal soon- such an amazing city and without traffic it's under 2 hours from Burlington! 
  • Send me a question! I've mentioned this a little bit in previous posts- but I'm excited in a couple weeks to be starting a monthly blog post series all about my job! I absolutely love working in radio broadcasting, and am so thankful to be pursuing a dream that I had for so many years. Even though it's a field that I actually work in, it's an industry that I'm very passionate about and always interested in learning more about. Because of this, I thought it would be really fun to incorporate a monthly blog series where y'all can have the chance to ask questions about both my job specifically and also the radio industry in general! Each month I'll answer a different reader question and get to dive into it. So- please send any questions related to the radio industry, studying broadcasting, or being an on-air personality my way!! You can leave them in a comment on this post, email them to me at rainbowflash94@yahoo.com, or DM me on Instagram (@miss_alk) - whatever is best for you! Expect the first post in a few weeks.


Purchases:
  • Well- I made it to the end of my four week long shopping fast!! Whoo hoo! However, last week's unexpected trip to Montreal brought with it an extra tank of gas for the week, dinner in the city, and coffee before the concert, so those were my "purchases" for my first week post-shopping fast. Sometimes experiences beat materials things. I'm definitely looking forward to doing some shopping in June though! I'm also happy to write a follow-up post about the shopping fast if that would interest y'all?


Wishlist: 
  • Something you might not know about me is that I have my belly button pierced! Sometimes I actually forget I have it done, because I rarely change the jewelry out! I absolutely love jewelry and own tons of earrings and necklaces, but for some reason I never buy belly button jewelry. Anyways- how cute is this belly ring? I think it would look really nice with bathing suits for summer! 
  • This keychain is under $10 and has the most darling design! Would be so cute to give your keys a little refresh for summer.
  • I featured this watch in my Nordstrom half yearly sale post from the weekend, but I'm still obsessing over it! One of the cutest watches that I have ever seen, and featuring my favorite type of bird.
  • I own a lot of tops in this style already (so great for work looks) but none in this pretty shade of green. Would be so great for summer work outfits!
  • Off the shoulder, a big bow, and seersucker.... AND under $15?! Yep. I'm down for this top


On the blog this week:


     Thanks so much as always for reading, and be sure to send me questions for my radio post series! I can't wait to start working on that.



     God Bless,

    1. DIVORCE AND MARITAL BREAKTHROUGH

      It all started when my husband cheated on me with another woman unknowing to him that the woman is a wizard, the woman castes a spell on my husband which made my husband change his feelings towards me and the kids and broke our 6 years marriage. i was confused and stressed because of the pains of being a single mother, when i called a friend and explained my marital challenges to her, she instructed and directed me to contact a great powerful spell caster called Dr. Ugo Wonders living in Florida. i contacted Dr. Ugo and explained my problems, he assured me his help and it was 100% guaranteed. i provided the materials for the spell and in 48 hours, after Dr Ugo Wonders of generalspelltemple@gmail.com finished casting the spell, my husband was free from the evil woman spell and he came back home to us a day after begging us to forgive him. i was so shocked and short of words and here i am today happily testifying so the world can know how this great man helped me with his real powerful spell.
