You started clicking on some links and you stumbled upon my corner of the Internet. I bet you are tired from your journey so relax, pour yourself a drink and hangout while you get to know me better.
My name is Brittany Michelle, I'm 30 something and I live in beautiful Southern California with my boyfriend, our dog, Buddy and our two cats, Mortimer and Thurston.
I am a full-time bored bartender (thanks Covid!) and amateur housewife. I have a passion for traveling, all things beauty, delicious food and adult beverages. I can usually be found in our kitchen whipping up tasty treats and altering recipes to make them my own. I'm currently working on a cookbook for working women that will feature easy and healthy meals that will make you feel like the Queen of your kitchen.
I went to school for graphic design and typography is my favorite aspect of designing and I absolutely love coding. I enjoy sketching and water coloring although I don't do it as much as I'd like. I am an avid crafter and I'm in the process of building a new handmade shop.
I am a former pro makeup artist and I wear way too much black but I blame that on the 15 years I spent in the beauty industry. I'm obsessed with nail polish and anything that promises to diminish fine lines.
I am a domestic violence survivor and divorced my abuser after 5 years of marriage following an assault over me misplacing my car keys. The incident left me with a broken nose, fractured cheek bone, various bruises and my self esteem in shambles. My divorce was final in July of 2019 and the last time I saw him was when I testified against him in court.
I've had several blogs over the years, and... I love blogging. It's a great way for me to be creative and to let out all those weird thoughts floating around in my head. The one thing that has always drawn me to the blogging communiverse is the support, love and inspiration that I felt from other women. Other (ex) wives. Other (dog) moms. Other girlfriends.
My desire is to have an honest space where I can chronicle my journey of healing, all my triumphs and even my epic failures. I won't always have perfectly staged photos or happy anecdotes about love, motherhood and friendship but I will share from a pure and honest place.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope when you close your computer or phone you leave here feeling better about yourself, humanity and sisterhood.
