"Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater, Had a wife and couldn't keep her; He put her in a pumpkin shell And there he kept her very well. Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater, Had another, and didn't love her; Peter learned to read and spell, And then he loved her very well." The first ryhm out of my new book of nursery rhymes! Seeing as I love collecting children's books/fairy tales and since my nickname is Punkin... just had to treat myself to this jem from the antique store today! Welcoming, "Marguerite de Angeli's Book of Nursery and Mother Goose Rhymes" to my little collection!

Rain, rain, I don't mind you. You make me happy, not blue. Just made this up. I was trying to find pro-rain rhymes. Couldn't find any in my book, didn't realized how disliked the rain is! Was hoping to find The Old Man Snoring but stumbled upon this page instead. "Friday night's dream, On the Saturday told, Is sure to come true, Be it ever so old."

The Dani Cam has returned! Our first clip is something Danielle caught during our latest CWF Hollywood trip! Seems that magicians always follow Danielle down the rabbit hole.
"You’ll blow them all to the wall. When they realise what you’ve been working for" Belle and Sebastian have brought me such happiness throughout the years. I love the story telling, smart, cool, vintage vibe they bring. "Dear Catastrophe Waitress" is my jam right now more than ever. So relatable! Today is my Friday! The holiday season brings the unexpected & a rush! Super busy and could use the day off. I talk more on this work journey, along with Shelly, on the highly anticipated episode of MARTINEZ GIRLZ RADIO! It's up NOW on TheMartinezGirlz.com Shelly had the pleasure of interviewing Christian York on this episode. I sincerely enjoyed listening and commenting on it. Christian is so entertaining and interesting! Hope you all have a blast tuning in!

There comes a time in life where things get real.... quick! The blissful ignorance of being a beginner is no longer an option. Moving on from comfortable "intermediate". Taking on higher expectations on a more "professional" status. Excuses (as understandable as they may be) serve as a wishy-washy outlet to distract from taking action. In efforts to maintain emotional control, I've been trying to avoid turning to tears for solutions (see my previous blog "No Woman No Cry"). Crying can be very therapeutic. A beautiful, delicate, expression. Although, I found in this process, my tears typically are a result of fear, hopelessness, and/or pity. This past week was EXTREMELY emotionally challenging for me. Moments I wanted to scream at the top of my lungs and pull every strand of my hair out. I did find myself crying in public against my will... or so I thought. Perhaps, I have been overwhelmed. Hormonal. But when I reflect back on my thoughts, they were heavy with worry and hopelessness. In those moments, I felt broken and weak. Looking back I should have focused on the strength it took to get there. Then collect self, have a reality check, and go from there. Lesson learned. Life is getting serious. I'm getting serious about my health and career. There will always be a level of sacrifice and if it's accepted now... it'll save energy that could be used to go forward instead of being held up. Obstacles are just a part of life. In games, they help keep things interesting. Instead of fearing or dreading them, I'm trying to recognize and grow. I can rant on. Watch my recent Veetle to hear more of these sorts of thoughts (above pic courtesy of ZombieFoto- BTS from our last shoot!).
Good luck on your journey. Keep your faith. Stay grounded. Be serious. Stay serious. No excuses. Choose happiness. Don't worry because I'll be right there with you trying to do the same! Luckily, we can learn from our mistakes, so there is no pressure to be perfect. All we can do is try our best!
