A Letter About Giving Tuesday and Stub Tail Candle Co.
Posted November 28, 2017 by love2dazzle in Features, Random Thoughts / 0 Comments

Hi Everyone, I am the owner of Stub Tail Candle Co. in Portland, OR. We are a small candle company that creates candles inspired by books and fandoms. One of the things that make us unique is we donate a portion of our sales to Animal Rescues. For this giving Tuesday, I wanted to share why we’ve decided to donate a portion of our sales. Growing up I didn’t have pets. My mom is allergic so we didn’t have any. I had many friends and relatives that did and I always enjoyed getting to play with them. I especially loved […]

It is a Snow Day

It is a Snow Day
Posted December 15, 2016 by love2dazzle in Features, Random Thoughts / 2 Comments

Hi my blogging friends. I thought I would write about my experience with the latest snow storm in the Pacific Northwest. Last night I was headed down from Beaverton, OR to go home and ended up being in traffic for 8 hours. It was so terrifying. The roads were covered in so much snow and ice. I love my state but goodness we are not prepared for weather like this. I was terrified trying to get home last night. There were a few times that my car lost traction and my traction light would come on. It was definitely an […]


Sorry to my Readers – Today I need a break

Posted November 11, 2016 by love2dazzle in Features, Random Thoughts / 0 Comments

To My Readers – Thank you for always reading and taking time out of your day to read my posts. I am sorry I let you down the past couple of days. I’ve been trying to write blog posts for three days and I just stare at the page. There is so much going on in my life that I am too upset to write. Hateful things have been said. Hateful things have been done. My heart hurts really bad. I am a sensitive soul and I feel for those that are hurting and I hurt for my own reasons […]


Blogging and Change

Posted October 25, 2016 by love2dazzle in Features, Random Thoughts / 2 Comments

Change: I am changing. I have changed. Change is always going to happen. One just needs to accept change and move forward. I have so many friends who are giving up on blogging and when I think about giving up it up, I just can’t. The frustrations are understandable. See Below: Frustrations: Time Does anyone read reviews anymore? Being the age of video, everyone is on YouTube. I don’t like being on camera. Same Old. Same Old. All Work. No Play. What am I going to do about it? I am not going to let myself be discouraged. Growing my blog is […]

The new job is great. I am so glad that I have been given this opportunity. I think being a new Social Media Specialist is going to be huge for my career. My boss is amazing already.

The Sound of Us Body Positivity Blog Series and Giveaways: What is a Beautiful Body?

The Sound of Us Body Positivity Blog Series and Giveaways: What is a Beautiful Body?

What is a Beautiful Body? What is the first thing you see, when you look at someone? Is it their loving heart? Their snarky attitude? How about the way the way their heart breaks when they see someone else hurting? These are not the things we see at first glance. These are things we see when we get to know someone. The first thing I see about a person is something about their body. Maybe it is their smile or how beautiful that girl looks in her dress? Whatever you see first is something physical. There really isn’t way around […]
