Melissa and Joey = Perfection!

I will start off by saying I am a 90’s kid through and through. I grew up watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Clarissa Explains it All. Melissa Joan Heart was basically an idol growing up.

Then there is Joey Lawrence. He was in Brotherly Love and most notably for me, and although IMDB says he wasn’t, I swear to you he was on at least one episode of Boy Meets World!


Either way when I started watching their show Melissa and Joey, I thought to myself, their relationship is perfection! Yes I know it is scripted. Yes I know it is “just a TV show.” But there chemistry is undeniable. And they even look like a cute couple!

But just a quick internet search will show you that Melissa has been married to some guy named Mark for almost 10 years! All I kept thinking when I saw this is who is that Mark guy and why is he trying to ruin this perfect relationship?

Now this isn’t the first time I have shipped a fiction relationship to happen in real life. Edward and Bella? Absolutely. Ezra and Aria? You bet.

But this is the first time I wished my relationship actually was like theirs!

And then I stumbled upon a movie from 2008 called “My Fake Fiance.” This must be where there TV romance blossomed! They have the BEST chemistry in this movie! It is very lifetime movie esque but it is all sorts of adorable!

Melissa, Joey, if you are reading this, you have the perfect mix of chemistry, good looks and great attitudes all combined with perfect timing. Why not use it?!


Forever a 90’s girl living in the new millennium




Finding the Holy Grail…Err Mrs Dash…

Okay my friends. I am going to be real with you. I enjoy my salt. And I mean REALLY enjoy my salt. I put salt on basically everything I eat, including watermelon (don’t knock it till you try it!). So when I went on my search for Mrs. Dash seasoning about a year ago, I clearly was not aware that it was a salt free product.


Anyways, that was a year ago. And you might be thinking, if you didn’t know that then why were you looking for it in the first place. Great question! Well I am a bit strange. I take a lot of tips from my online friends. No not friends that I actually converse with like many of my lovely blog followers, but friends in the form of people I enjoy watching videos from.

One particular girl shared her love for Mrs. Dash seasoning quite often. Now I knew it was on the healthy side because she is part of my health and wellness company but healthy is good! I figured if she raved about it so much than it had to be worth it!

So I searched, and I searched. Store after store after store. To no avail. I posted about the mystery on Instagram and found out that it was very prevalent in the south. But as a northern gal it might be that I am out of luck.

Then today, a year later, the idea ran across my mind again to look for it. So I hit the website and found a locate feature where you could type in the zip code and find where its sold. To my surprise it was sold in the exact store I frequent. Who knew?

So I made my way down there and found an assortment of Mrs. Dash seasonings. And that is when I learned that it was a salt free product. And it could not have come at a better time!

Recently, we learned that the boyfriend has high blood pressure, not alarmingly high, but for his age its elevated. I had made a decision to start cutting out the added salt where I could. And trust me that is no easy task for this salty gal. But this seasoning is the perfect fix!


Friends when I tell you it is tasty, I am not doing it justice! The seasoning is incredible and the fact that it is salt free astounds me!

Now that I have had time to process this revelation I am thinking that the DASH part of the name refers to the heart healthy DASH diet. Given that I work in healthcare that should have been pretty obvious a year ago but as I said I am in love with salt so a divorce from it really never crossed my mind until now!

I am sure I am not the only one totally in awe by this stuff! Who else has tried this seasoning and what is your favorite dish to put it on?




Professionally Keeping My Personality!

Hey friends!


It has been awhile since I have done a written post. Currently I am experiencing some technical difficulties with my camera but I did not want to take too long of a break from my blogging pals. I miss you guys! So I am going back to my first love of writing to give you this post!

As someone in my late twenties, the struggle of finding a professional outfit that still showcases who I am as a person has been real. I often find myself wandering stores looking for anything that doesn’t make me look like a middle aged women. With that focus in mind, I often lose sight of what I actually like to wear.

I find myself saying things like “that’s not horrible”, “at least its versatile”, “it’s comfortable at least.” And that is not at all what I want for my daily wardrobe.

Lets face it, I am at work more than I am not. So if my personality does not shine in my work wardrobe, when can it?

But lets be real, my fashion taste includes leather, spikes, and anything edgy. How do you make that professional?

Aria Montgomery has done it right. She is edgy, chic and professional. But honestly, crop tops and mini skirts won’t work in my line of work. Even though she rocks it hard! Aria you get me but I can’t imitate you.


Then there is Melissa from Melissa and Joey. She rocks the sexy side of professional which I love. She doesn’t really rock the edge but I could dig her clothes. But the price tag is certainly not something I dig.


Then there is Rebecca Bunch from Crazy Ex Girlfriend, she rocks professional pretty hard but I think its a little too “cute” for me.


Oh and lets not forget Alicia Florrick from The Good Wife. Her style is amazing but just a little too matronly for me.


So what is a girl to do?

I will be honest I still haven’t quite figured it out yet but I have pieced a few things together.

I need a good statement necklace, or two or five. I need some patterned well patterned everything because patterns bring the edge. And I need some fitted tops. Sex appeal with class.

I think I have my work cut out for me. It may be awhile before I find the wardrobe that works for me but the quest is important.

What do you do when searching for the perfect style to fit your daily life? Do you rock what you want to rock? Do you copy cat your favorite TV fashonista? Or are you a drone of the office attire regardless of how you feel?








Rory Gilmore Should be a Booktuber!

Hey friends!

So this video is a little disappointing to me. I planned ahead, shot the video good and early so it wasn’t late again. But, currently I am shooting on my phone because we are getting a camera in the middle of August. So getting video off your phone is a task and a half. Well, needless to say things did not go smoothly so the video didn’t come out the best.

On top of that, my editing skills are so green I really don’t know how to make things look cool yet. I really had a lot of great ideas for this video but sadly it came out very elementary.

Hopefully, you can still enjoy my thoughts and continue with me on this journey as I learn and grow!

See you next week!
