Back to Black

Sacramento, CA

It’s been a very long time since I’ve updated here! First thing that you’ll notice is a new look, which I’m really happy with.

Lashes and  sunglasses

I’ve been back on Pinterest these days since the app decided to work again on my phone. Many evenings when the baby doesn’t let me sleep through the night, you’ll see the glow of my screen as I find all sorts of goodies to “pin” onto my virtual boards. I’ll confess that I am a […]
