Is it Al or Maybe Just Din... or Aladdin?

The other day, I posted a blog with a flashback to the 90s (Don't remember it? Click here!). As a child in the 90s, I had my love for Disney, and what child didn't? Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Pocahontas... Aladdin. Ah, those were good times.

The awestruck moments of wonder and intrigue you had as an innocent child watching as our beloved heroes and heroines conquer their battles and live happily ever after.  The music... Oh the music. Disney has always done music very well.

"I can show you the world ... dazzling, shimmering splendor..." I bet you know how the rest of that song goes.

If you are new to my blog, you may not know that I have a beauty channel on YouTube where I create various types of beauty videos and transformations. Normally, I try not to do the same thing over and over again, but I have been very keen on creating transformation videos. For Halloween, I created a transformation where I become the genie version of Jafar, which has been a fairly popular video for myself. In one of the comments, I got a request for me to do Aladdin next... and that's what I did recently. I transformed myself into a man...

For your viewing pleasure, here they are together:




I have to say - I do not make a pretty man. Even though this blog is all about the pretty things in life and appreciating them for what they are, I will not hesitate to say how happy I am to be a woman - this look suits me best. ;-)

Let me know what you think of these videos! Is there anything you'd like to see? If so, hop on over to my YouTube channel here and click that little subscribe button for more.

What is your most favorite Disney character? Is it Belle with her beauty and wit, or Ariel with her quirky independence? Perhaps, you like Woody and Buzz, or Jack and Gus from Cinderella. Tell me who it is in the comments below.

Happily ever after,

A Spring in My Steps

For those of you who have followed me for some time, you must know by now that one of my favorite spots here in Seattle is Green Lake. There's something so serene in walking the almost-three mile path around the lake - all while never even leaving the city. It's a short drive away and I find myself longing for a visit when I think only of its lush natural scenery and everything you could want in a park.
I went to Green Lake earlier in the day than normal and spotted these lovely little crocuses, reaching their aubergine-veined petals through the soil. I see them every year scattered about the city, but something about how they always reach for the sky makes them so relatable. 
Starting my walk, I noticed the eerie sky and how white it was with overcast - there were crows cawing and screeching from all over, fields and branches full of birds. My assumption is that after all the earthworms were about and crows were swarming to get a shot at their evening meal. 
Concluding my wa…

Off to the Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch

Two years ago, my sister and I ventured up to Snohomish County to go to our first corn maze. On this past Sunday, we repeated the experience, this time, with her boyfriend in our company, taking lead as map guide. 
In our first year, we had forgone the use of the map and decided to venture through completely
on our own. We made it! It took us nearly two hours to complete the massive maze, but all the same, had a a lot of fun - so much so that when she announced that she was moving back to Washington State from Arizona, we both decided (early in the summer, mind you) that we would be returning to Bob's Corn Maze.

As our tummies were grumbling with hunger upon our arrival, we started our visit by standing in the understandably long line for three scrumptious golden ears of roasted corn, dipped into melted salty butter, using a napkin and the blackened husks to anchor the ears to our
hands. Juicy bites of corn melted in our mouths with one delicious bite after another. This year,…

Sacred Storytelling

Over the past year, I've begun to uncover my purpose in this life - what am I here for and how do I find fulfillment in that purpose? Is it ongoing or is it a one-time goal that I will eventually achieve? What then if that is the case?
There are so many questions to ponder and endless thoughts about the what-ifs and hypothetical future I could potentially have, based on the notion that I knew exactly what my purpose was, that is.
I've known that I'm meant to be a storyteller - that I am a writer and creator, but that alone didn't resonate with me or drive me to work towards any one goal of actually being those things. I already was those things, but there wasn't a sense of fulfillment from bestowing upon myself these titles. Works have been created, but to no real purpose or reason. The question is how to make this state of being something more tangible...more real.
It wasn't until a couple of weeks ago when I read an article about Reese Witherspoon who spok…
