Fill in the Blank Tag

This is from a curious little paper that belonged to Aaron, so I converted it into a tag of course!


Fill in the blanks with your answers:

My favorite color is green, because it is synonymous with Earth and my element.

When alone I like to become aware of the present moment, because it connects me to life.

If I had a million dollars I would pay my debt, give some to others, invest, and travel.

I wish my mother had told me to embrace the adventure that is life.

I wish my father had told me that I will always be safe.

No one knows this but I... can't think of anything that is unknown, because I'm very open with others.

I am best at simply being myself.

I hate nothing, because it's a waste of energy (or at least I try my very best).

The one thing I want people to know the most about me is that this doesn't matter to me.

When it comes to money I am always provided for and it flows when I need it.

When it comes to love I am always loved and strive to unconditionally love myself.

I like to wear what is an expression of self in the present moment.

The first thing I like to do in the morning is hug Aaron.

I want everything and nothing at all.

 I tag everyone out there! Pass it around!

Look of the Month :: Fall 2015 :: September

September is my month, and such fun is always to be had. It's my time to reflect upon my life and begin a whole new year. My birthday has always been really special, because I recalibrate and make sure that I'm in alignment with my true self. In doing so, I know that all is well, and my choices are guided by my heart going forward. This is so beautiful and important to me.

That being said, I know that I'm feeling a bit of green this year! Which is brilliant, because there are so many wonderfully delicious greens trending this fall. Ah, the Universe knows me! It knows that my inner woodland creature is surfacing: playful, mischievous, and full of life.

So bring out the earth-toned shadows for this digital face chart, because it's time to create a look that captures nature at this time. Dry green leaves and warm browns are a must. Have fun, and appreciate how good it feels to once again watch the trees change this season. It's been so long for me, and I'm excited about the familiar feeling. I can already tell that the air is changing.   

The current look is:
S E P T E M E R  2 0 1 5


Color trends for this month:
Dried herb, sage, reflecting pond, black, and yellow gold

Current motivation for the look:
The 12th, wood nymphs, and falling leaves


Previous Looks this Year:
