"Rosie the Riveter" is a cultural icon representing the American woman working during WWII. She symbolizes the strong, independent woman of that time. -- Now, more than 70 years later, the symbol stands as strong as she. I am proud to be a woman and am grateful for other brave women before me that endured the struggle of sexism and paved the equal path to our society today.

These are the confessions, lessons learned and experiences from my life. A single, independent, strong, young professional woman living in a busy Downtown city in Northern California.

Embracing my domesticity while enjoying the freedom of being perfectly lonely.

A Perfectly Balanced Woman


.Officially OBSESSED. 

These paintings, by the amazing Kelly Reemtsen, speak to both my feminist but domestic side. 
Proves to me that you can be strong and still look fabulous. Delicate but brave. Independent and fierce. 

My mother (still to this day) reminds me that she raised a lady and I should act like a classy lady (because that's how you attract a husband-ayeyiyi). All the same time my dad would walk in the house reeking of his recently caught bass-fish, boat exhaust & cigarettes.   

I am blessed to have old fashion parents and even more blessed they taught me how to think for myself. Sometimes I think they regret telling me, I can do anything if I set my mind to it, so much :) 

In my eyes, this is what a perfectly balanced woman looks like. 

I will have these in my home one day.
