See how gorgeous my dear Florida can be… Sebastien and I went to visit Flamingo Gardens, a rather small but exquisite botanical garden and zoo near Fort Lauderdale. They actually only keep animals that are injured and would otherwise not make it free in nature.
Flamingos always inspire me with their vibrant color and graceful limbs and poses.
I can never get tired of palm trees. They just magically captivate my attention and admiration. Different sizes and types, all gorgeous the same. I used to hug them, but after I got severely attacked by some insects while demonstrating my love, I ditched the idea.
How sweetly delicate.
Would you wanna swim with this guy?
Strike a pose!
Sebastien loved this rootely-rooted tree.
Owww… I’m a goner!
Did you know that Florida has panthers? I didn’t.
Some sparkles never killed a girl. Right Missy?
Carambolas. I never thought they’d grow in a tree.
Visiting the gardens was a real moment of zen. Sebastien and I took the time to see, wonder and appreciate. You know, one of those life moments when you just live fully.
As the fall kicks in full blast, I’m feeling like apple scented candles. I glitter the apartment with the little burning pearls. I equally organized a pot luck at church and my BFF brought in a yummy apple crumble.
I keep making the chic choice as to sartorial adventures. Red spices up the autumn days nicely. I layer up for work. If the job gets heated up, lots of acting out in a class, I can shed of a coating.

I just saw LMFAO in concert. The summer music festival is here in Quebec City and downtown is packed with party folks. We live right in the action. The bam and boum can be heard in our living-room. Neons take this summer away. The number of kiddos dressed in such, cheering for LMFAO. You should have seen. We were 75 000 there, I suppose. Dancing the city night away.
I have a new art project. An interesting order. The type of painting I hadn’t done in years. Nevertheless, it seems to be going okay, and giving my days sweet purpose.

Lace entices me this spring time. Pulling that white wonder out of the closet, after a winter so long. My legs breathe. Toes giggle. Soul shyly starts to sing. Possibly. Hopefully.
My Quebecker pal keeps baking the sweets away. Nutty tones.
I smile. I try to live life to the fullest. My challenge. Internal tensions. Panic attacks that try to lurk. Feeling tense inside. Pains. For no reason. Uncomfortable sensations in a bus. A crowded place. Spoiling my joy.
Oh, if I could just go back to that girl I used to be. Relaxed. Living here and now. Fearlessly. I keep believing I can.
Lime longings. Refreshing tang.
Sensing you as a cupcake.
Learning that relaxed attitude.
My life. Now. What is yours?

What if we all felt so-oo sexy, all of a sudden…
Struck a pose, just because.
Giggled away. A time or two.
My dear Anne and her wondrous cupcakes. Pecan caramel. Melt away, will ya!
A night out at friends’. BBQ and funny home-made films.
I picked up the cutie in the very middle.
Life after anorexia is generous. It eats cupcakes that dear friends lovingly bake. It feels all sizzling and sexy. Weird saying that out loud, yet these are very the words that heal and soothe. The paroles that keep the girl away from relapsing. Guys driving by and honking their horns. Calling you sex-ay. When a bone bag… this ain’t the deal.
Go ladies, show your figures… and most of all, show You!

We took a leisurely ride out to the Orleans Island, floating in the middle of Saint Lawrence River. A cute hop away from Quebec City. The visit started at the island’s gem, a delicious chocolate shop. The Sweets and I munched on mint and vanilla cream-filled choco treats as we strolled along the windy riverbanks.
I love taking it easy and getting acquainted with my new surroundings. Nature has such soothing power. Canadian landscape differs greatly from what I have ever seen before. Such majesty. Great vast areas. Mustardy colors. Awesome inspiration for wardrobe.
I have enjoyed getting more into some friendships. I have several new people in my life, and we do things often. Inspiration-based. Smoothly rolling. Art openings and theater.
I also went shopping recently. Found some perky spring stuff. Made me feel very Gucci in its shimmerness. Luxury is here for us to take. What will be your vogue action this week? I’ll be sporting some silver glittered heels.
