It’s that time again, moving time! Well it’s come and gone, I’m all settled in my new place. Well I wouldn’t say all settled… I gave all my furniture to either my mom or my brother (seriously, every piece of furniture other than 2 computer chairs and a bookcase). But all my remaining stuff is here, I’ve got internet, so that’s what I consider settled. We’ve already bought a new bed, a desk, and tonight sometime I’m hoping to go buy cutlery and plates/bowls/etc. I have 1 knife, 1 fork, and 1 spoon to my name right now. Haha! I feel like I’m a teenager again moving out for the first time. But my family is happy with new things, and it was time to change up my place so I have new furniture to shoot in.
Yes I know I move a lot, I’ve been told, it’s not like I don’t know this It’s just my thing baby, it’s how I roll.
Even little Jack has been super pooped out and sleeping like the dead.
So it’s weird living out of suitcases, but life is going so fast these past few weeks preparing to move that it hasn’t phased me at all actually. I feel pretty nomadic lately, though I have been for most of my life I guess, but more so lately that’s for sure! I am planning to stay in this place for… well who knows. A year? 3 months? 1.5 years? Somewhere in there Then it’s on to… who knows? Maybe Mexico with my Quebecois lady Ariel, or Arizona near Ms Talia Shepard, or somewhere even more crazy like overseas! Life works better when you go with the flow and don’t make serious plans, they rarely ever work out anyway, and you get to experience some wild things in life if you can live with an open mind.
The first half of this year was pretty soul crushing (I lost a family member, but didn’t mention it online because it was something I didn’t want to talk about) so the second half of this year? Fuck it. Life is short, and when it ends abruptly it jars you into reality that your own life could end at any moment. So, why wait to go do the things you want to do? You might not have a next year, or even next month. I decided I didn’t want to keep saying “Some day I’ll travel to fill in the blank” and started making plans. So not only with traveling, I’ve been much more lax with how much thought/stress/worry I put into making decisions. Don’t worry, I haven’t gone off the deep end, and no that’s not why I started having sex with my husband and filming it for the interwebs, I’m still the same me Priorities have just changed a little is all. More time enjoying the now, less time worrying about the what ifs. Wow did this blog post go in a totally different direction than I thought it would! Welcome to my world though I suppose, I promised an update so here we are!
Enjoy your weekend loves <3 I will be out shopping for the basics of life and enjoying the sunshine as much as I can with my little fluff. xx
TGIF! Well I’ve actually not been looking forward to today, so much to do in my house. I’m giving my mom my couch this weekend, and my bro is getting a few things too, time to clear out some furniture for new shoots! But that does mean a couple days of hot, sweaty me moving big furniture in the sun, in my little short shorts and tank top… Haha! Ah well it will get done and they will both enjoy some different/new to them things.
I’m planning on visiting with my family all weekend, it’s definitely over due, we’ve only been seeing each other for an hour here or there the past… year, yikes! So I decided it’s time to put life on hold and make a point to spending some time with them.
I found a surprise by the side of my house yesterday, tulips! I didn’t plant them, I have no idea where they came from.. I keep finding them all over my yard though. These things seriously spread like weeds! This summer I’m planning to make a patio garden (a tall plant stand with veggie and fruit plants in pots) but no flowers since I always end up killing them. So the tulips can stay where they are and look pretty
I’ve been feeling summery lately and kind of like I wanted a slight change, so I booked myself a hair appointment today and just ran with it. I was feeling in a very fun chill out mood so I went with something different! I teased you guys on twitter, no I didn’t cut it short! I’m enjoying my long mane lately so it’s going to stay, I have no plans on changing the length so don’t worry you long hair lovers. I’ve been the dark hair bad girl for so long.. not anymore!
I know, not the greatest quality pic, I snapped it quick with my laptops webcam (aside from today being a no-makeup day). But you get the general idea, I went carmel-y blonde with highlights ahhh! Crazy for me. It’s a total change, one that I’ll take some time to get used to, but I like it!
I grabbed a starbucks very-berry drink on the way home, yum! Give it a try, I bet you’ll like it I am planning on relaxing with the boys tonight in front of a movie, I’ve got a bit of a headache so it’s time to take it easy. Shooting later this week, and lots of craziness around my house… I’ll reveal my big secret late next week why my life is :O right now. Exciting news! xx
Can you believe it? I lost most of this year it seems! It is crazy how time flies sometimes, especially when while you’re experiencing it some times it feels like it’s standing still. If that made any sense.
So life is still nut show for me lately, I think this is just becoming the new norm in my life. So be it, I’m having fun! Spontaneity is good, and it’s allowed me to lead such a wild ride lifestyle up until now. I know a lot of people would think, jees B, settle down and chill out for a while! Or that I might live one crazy erratic life. But I like it, I have fun, and I sleep well at night. Isn’t that all that matters?
Well a few extra things matter..
Ridiculously amazing dessert with no name.. whip cream, coconut, fruit salad, graham crackers… foodgasm is what it should be called.
Pretty little flowers (that won’t die!) to remind me I’m loved, and are small enough to fit on my ridiculously small computer desk.
Relaxing in the sunshine. (Yeah, good excuse to get tits in the picture, but are you complaining?)
So yes life has been crazy lately, and I will expand more in the coming weeks.. big changes are happening in my life Nothing to do with work or my website or anything Bella, everything is the same don’t worry, it’s just personal life. All is good. But for now, thankfully I have a couple days extra to relax and appreciate the small things. Starbucks carmel macchiatos. Playing in the grass and sunshine with Jack. Leaving my door open for fresh air. Movie nights (go see Iron Man 3, it rocked). Going to see my all time favorite friggin’ band EVAR (Motley Crue).
What am I hoping to do in the next few weeks or months? Well, aside from launching a new Bella website or two I want to make a little patio garden, I’m thinking something along the lines of an outdoor bookcase/plant stand, and lots of little vegetable and fruit plants. I see many tomatoes in my future! Lots of trips to the beach too! What do you have planned for this summer?
I had a busy busy week so let me catch you up! Family stopped by and proposed an impromptu road trip, so we were off to enjoy the spring. We didn’t go anywhere exciting or do anything too exciting when we arrived, but it was fun to be together and do something different. I had planned to shoot in my hotel room this week but family made themselves quite a bit more present than I thought would happen, so I’m back to awesome ass updates this week I’ve got a couple planned that will hopefully blow your mind… or at least your load Anyway on to the fun pics!
Buckle up for safety!
Some awesome pine trees, you can’t see but this one was ready to litter the ground with seeds, it looked pretty cool.
This was dinner one night, you know how it is on the road. Whatever is closest wins!
More fun scenery since I know not a lot of you live near mountains.
Spoiling myself since it was a mini vacation and you just have to, blueberry syrup french toast mmmm! My new fav
Some WICKED fan art (yes it’s the original!) that I picked up when I got home! WOW! Love it, thank you so much Ryan!
And some sexy new panties I got off my wishlist, thank you Steven!
So that was my trip in photos, I’m trying to take more photos as I go, life has just been nuts this year for some reason or other. Not complaining, busy is good, it’s all been exciting! I got back home super late on Friday night, and unfortunately Saturday woke up with a scare If you follow me on twitter (@Bryci) you’ll know I spent the morning of Saturday in the hospital ER room, it’s not as serious as it sounds thankfully but I thought I was hooped. I had absolutely no idea what was going on guys, it was one of the scariest moments of my life. So, Saturday morning I wake up, sit up, and instantly just know something isn’t right. Feel sick to my stomach so I rush to the bathroom, but thankfully nothing happens, then a few seconds later I feel like I’m going to pass out because my pulse is so low, I couldn’t barely feel it on the side of my neck. So I lay down on the floor to hopefully get some blood to my head so I don’t pass out, still doesn’t work, I can feel myself fading in and out. Then the fever came on, within 10 seconds I went from normal temperature to sweating so badly it was running down my face, it looked like I had just stepped out of the shower. Thankfully I banged on the wall and James came to see what was up, and since I’d never had experienced anything like this before we decided a trip to the ER room was nessesary. So off we go, I made it myself into the ER and sat down to wait to be helped and just couldn’t stay awake. James found a doc and got me wheeled in, then came the flurry of this test and that test and hook me up to this machine and that machine. Anyway, long story short, I had severe food poisoning. Gah! I normally avoid doctors and hospitals like the plague, I try to fix myself as best I can at home first, I don’t like wasting anyones time (which is weird I know because I live in Canada and my taxes grant me free healthcare!) but this time was just so so different than anything I’d experienced in my life. But after my saline drip for a few hours I felt much better, he said I was dehydrated too so it was a few things my body was dealing with. (Also, nope I’m not pregnant lol!)
So now I’m back home, feeling better, and just planning to take today (Sunday) easy and relax and rest up. For tomorrow I have to return to adult-land and go to the dentist boo! But I’ve got a week of awesome shooting planned so it will be a fun week after all Hope you are having a great weekend!
