Bucket List

Hey Loves! I’ve been thinking, it’s time for me to add some more items to my bucket list. Within the past 5 years, I’m tremendously grateful to say that I have put a serious dent in my bucket list. 😊
Sidebar: I typically don't share these experiences on social media because I aim to focus on living in the moment versus capturing the moment. However going forward, I am going to make a more concerted effort to enjoy the moment fully AND share it when possible/appropriate…
Moving on...I am incredibly thankful for all of the experiences that I’ve had, countries I’ve visited and explored like a native, all of the priceless lessons learned, along with life changing perceptions gained along the way.
With that being said, I never want to reach a point where I’ve checked everything off of my bucket list! I want my bucket list to always be full, choked with realistically attainable & worthwhile pursuits.  
There is a poem that really stirs me, written by Padhia Avocado, in it she says: “At the end of my life I will have no curiosity…having spent my lifetime living the answers”.  Life is for LIVING! Keeping a bucket list helps me to avoid getting caught up in a monotonous, non-enjoyable daily routine. Instead, I live with purpose, continuously taking steps to reach my goals 😃
Please do share: What’s up next on your bucket list?
Today’s look features a few items that I snagged while in Kenya back in December (I cannot believe it's been six months ago already). That trip is filed under EPIC- FOREVER CHANGED because it was a life lesson for me in a number of ways…Maybe one day’ll write about it here on the blog-but no promises, LOL! 
This dress is the most perfect shade of yellow- in fact in my head it says, ‘Hello Summer’! Notice that it has an interesting cutout at the midriff, which I was so looking forward to rocking. Unfortunately it fit me in an odd way (probably because I have a short torso and am generously proportioned in the bosom area) if I move one inch you can see my bra…Needless to say I opted for a matching cotton tank to wear underneath it 😉 I really like the variation that silver accessories added to the mix! And most importantly- I was cool as a cucumber in 90+ degree temps 😎
Until next time,
Xx
