Well, there’s a lot going on and a lot that I’m working on and I’m just feeling so buzzed by it all. I’m not exactly sure how to frame everything but tapping with High Vibe Honeys has really impacted my life. It has also enabled me to start journaling again and to create daily gratitude lists which have also impacted me greatly.
So anyway, my idea was to incorporate my 5 item gratitude list into Miseducated because I really love to utilize this forum and I love to talk about things that I love.
My first gratitude is High Vibe Honeys because it has inspired me to get into tapping. I’ve had so many therapists and healers recommend tapping to me but it just wasn’t the right time. I am really grateful for the practice, it has changed my life.
I really adore working with Selkie and promoting their collections. Every item is so gorgeous and well-made. Sometimes I can’t even believe that their dresses are real. I feel incredibly blessed to be able to own and love so many Selkie clothes and to share them with others. (Use discount code MISEDUCATED for %10 off!)
Inspiration & New Projects
I’ve been feeling really inspired lately, almost like I can’t even sit still, inspired. I am extremely grateful for this because this impacts my store, my blog, and my life and my home in general.
I’ve really been digging Instagram lately because I see the potential for community and connection on there. I think Facebook is really outdated presently but Instagram offers visuals with community and it’s very artist friendly. I also am aware that TikTok has really blown up (after I’ve stopped using it) but I just don’t feel led to use it much. Instagram is a much more positive experience for me.
I know it’s a given, but I wanted to save the best for last. My family is such an inspiration to me and have led me to some really amazing places in my life. I don’t know what I’d do without my husband and children and I’m so blessed to know them.
I originally created this website/blog in the late 90s (ack!) because I wanted to share the awe-influencing things I see around my part of world (and my travels) so we can be inspired together. I stopped featuring places a lot, and don’t blog much except for inspiring photos, but… this place was pretty cute! The plant wall was inclusive of 2 monstera deliciosas and the patio was surrounded by vines, lights, and bamboo.
My eve during the week to go out alone and to hang with a friend is Wednesday — it makes for the perfect middle of the week re-center and is a great time to catch up with best friends. I have a toddler, a preteen, 3 bonus kids, and 3 jobs — haha. It’s hard to take breaks for art or fun but so important.

It’s not Monday, but it still seems far from Friday.
It doesn’t blow my hair back with force, but it is full of opportunity for finding treats, teas, and treasures. My favorite new Tuesday ritual is to make a mood/inspiration board to inspire myself for the rest of the week~
Go on and make a cup of TUESDAY TEA while you look for inspiring mood board photos~
I’m not really sure why I’m drawing them now but you know picnics have just hit different since Covid, huh?
Not to be extra, I am just as happy with grabbing a bag of food or a pizza and heading to the park. That’s the best thing about picnics, they can be made out of literally anything. You can be as fancy or as low key as you want and it’s still fun.
What’s your favorite think to take to a picnic?
I’m going to offer postcard packs of these soon! Stay tuned. xx

“Not just cute. Savour the fresh baked flavor of the bread, made with 100% Japan-grown wheat flour, mixed with creamy milk. Every mouthful of the milky soft bread is rich and moist. Nothing but carefully selected Japanese ingredients. The succulent bread explodes with flavour with every bite. Come on in and try it. It’s purr-fect.” – Neko Neko Shokupan

When I saw this shop on Instagram I could not handle the cuteness. They said they would love a feature so please check it out if you find yourself in South Korea! I know I will whenever we are able to travel again.

“The series speaks to the shocking treatment of Blacks throughout history and the trauma inflicted on their bodies as juxtaposed with the abstract idea of black freedom,”
“Simultaneously, it engages with a vision of the future—one of hope, resilience, and justice.”
“I have an obsession with exposing what lies beneath the surface. It is my constant examination of the spirit, and no doubt – my intense curiosity with the cycle of life and death. Everyday, I think of peeling away layers, and imagine what I will find. I know that what I am looking for is not tangible, and with all my years of studying science, not even it can help me describe this thing. When I do finally get to a place of imaginative clarity, the visions are so intricate, and intertwined, that I find them too complex to communicate through my work. I am not YET skilled enough to show you all that I see. I work to break that barrier each, and everyday.”
I cannot fawn over Fabiola’s rewriting of history enough. I know you agree. Please check out more of Fabiola’s work here.
Want to have penpals but not into the whole stationary, stamps, post office thing? You can also have penpals directly from your phone! Slowly takes 1 day to deliver your letter to someone from around the world. You can do a match yourself or the app can give you a random match based on your preferences. I’ve already gotten around 20 penpals and the slowness of the sending of your letter and the slowness of the response arrival makes you really consider your letter more than you would a text or email. After writing you can also swap a photo (only if both penpals agree). I adore it.
I love these graphic novel styled games. This one is about a girl falling in love and the soundtrack and puzzles are sweet! I have quite a few of these styles of games and this one is very well done.
The purpose of this game is to collect love. Your partner goes to work and you will collect love from your cat/s as well as from the weather, from your garden, and by making bento boxes for your partner’s work day. It’s so cute and almost an exact interpretation of my life, haha.
This is a baby book app. It has journalling prompts with questions each day and you can attach a photo. Personally you can use this to journal about anyone (or any pet). I have a journal going for my daughters Beatrice and Colette. I love that I can look back on my answers to questions I wouldn’t have even considered writing about on my own. You can also pay to print a book of each person you kept a journal about. The entries are usually just little blurbs but they are special memory bites for your future reminiscent appetite.
