Photo taken from @mchiouji on Instagram
Would ya look at that: it's the end of February. That means it's time for another Teacup of the Month! I'm happy to say our February 2017 Teacup of the Month is Mchi. Like Mochi, but without the 'o.' I'm so excited to give this spotlight to Mchi because they are not only an astounding member of the community, but they've become a good friend of mine. Mchi has been hardcore with #TeacupClub ever since they joined, and that is something that has not been lost on me.

004: Light

I turn on a light
and flecks speckle air -
flitting, glinting, charming
in my aura. [brightening]
In white palm, I take them,
pale gold, sparkling,
and crush them to
glittered dust
I run over my body.
I twirl the coy ribbons
flirting in the air
around my finger,
tingling warm, summer morning,
and weave them through my hair
so it looks like it
It is not gilding
if it is light, not gold.
Made of shadow, stroked
with light, I am dusk.


A Cat Babe Wishlist

Real talk - I'm lowkey obsessed with cats. I think they are such sweet little creatures and I want to rub my face on every single one. Well, except the ones I know will scratch my face off. I'll pet those ones from a comfortable distance... with my eyes. You get the point though: Bre vibes with cats. My affection for these little cuties earns me the title of "cat lady," but my god. How completely unsexy does that sound? I mean, honestly? We have this cultural vision of a cat lady and the negativity people imply with that term, and I think it's just kinda mean. That's not me - I just like cats. So no, I'm not a cat lady. I'm a CAT BABE. I have no shame in my love for kitty bitties, and one of my favorite ways to show that is in my fashion. So to all my fellow cat babes, here are some bits and bobs I want to add to my cat babe wardrobe

Twenty Things that Make Me Happy

I don’t know why, but I’ve always felt an aversion to writing this type of post. Like, I totally love reading them (nosy af), but I’ve felt like no one would be interested in reading mine. And that’s silly, right? I mean, I know you’re all basically obsessed with me and want to know every silly detail there is to know, right?

The Liebster Award

Oh, the Liebster Award. I remember doing this on my last blog. It feels like it was a million years ago, so I had a lot of fun fulling this out. But, like, super weird: the rules are different? The origins of this nomination (because no one ever wins) are super vague, so I'm not surprised there't multiple sets of rules fluttering around. Still weird though. I remember one of the rules the last time I did this was it had to be a small blogger or someone who had been blogging less than a year. That isn't indicated in this set of rules, but I lowkey stuck to that. I went through #TeacupClub and picked a few nice looking folks and chose them for this little doozey. Thanks you Pandora Pip for choosing me! xoxo

003: June

Careless days back in June
with lazy breeze no match for sun fever.
Gazing, watching, wondering in blue.
Bugs around me dance effervescent.

I’m lost under the willow tree
with thoughts that ponder skyscrapers.
Concrete cracks spit dandelions
they crush under their city shoes.

But flowers grow in my stomach,
drawing in honey bees
who hum evening symphonies
for orange watercolor atmosphere.

Tip-toed starlight sneaks into the sky, elegant
and slow. Take a moment, listen
to the night, become lost again.
Breathe, intoxicate yourself with nature’s perfume.


What You Need for Your First Pole Class

Ayyye so you you wanna pole dance, huh? That’s what’s up. I have people in my life and online tell me how cool they think it would be to take a pole class all the time. Of those people, I actually manage to convince a few. It’s exciting and you feel a little sexy just thinking about it, but I won’t pretend there aren’t some nerves before. A lot of those nerves are because you don’t what to expect, and you don’t know how to prepare. I mean, I would have loved to have had a comprehensive list of what I needed before going into, so I thought I would try and put a lil something together. (You're welcome.)

February, 2017 // Blogging Goals

Look at me going full blogger with this blogging goals post. It's like I really care about my blog and want it to be successful. I've seen posts like these from other bloggers, and I've enjoyed them every time. Partly because I'm nosey little ear-hustler, but also because they're interesting. We know blogging is hard work (like, obvi), so it's cool to see what others are pushing themselves to achieve. I find making lists helps hold me accountable, so why not go ahead and join the bandwagon on this one.
