Happy Sunday funday my little chickens! Anyone else find that time is running away from us as 2017 approaches? This may be due to the fact that I’ve been all kinds of sick lately and therefore not leaving the house much, so my days are all kinda blending together. The lack of sleep and countless hours spent in the bacteria germ tubes often referred to as airplanes finally caught up to me I guess. In any case before I was all yucky and sick, I was traveling to Texas with my husband to rep for his company WERKS as sponsors for TejasTreffen in Houston. In case you were wondering WERKS is a lifestyle brand that revolves around vintage Porsches and racing, and is all kinds of awesome. Also a great place to buy man gifts for the holidays, but like actually though, it’s like Toys R Us for the entire gentleman race.
Before heading to Houston to work the WERKS booth, (see what I did there) we absolutely had to visit Austin as I had simply heard too many good things not to. It was all I hoped for and more. The BBQ, the vintage shopping, and the people, all contributed in giving us the Texan experience we’d always dreamt of having. Also I can go on record saying that South Congress is my favourite street I’ve ever had the pleasure of walking down on all of planet earth…come to think of it there are so many good streets in Austin! From watching Stand By Me on an outdoor big screen at Lucille’s on Rainey Street, to jamming to live music on Sixth, there were so many nighttime activities to choose from, beside my usual Netflix and just actually chilling. Austin, you’ve got all kinds of soul, and I dig you.
Before I sign off, I have to officially announce that there is a little something cool coming your way this week that you best look out for. I’ve wanted to do this “thing” I’m referring to so illusively for a very long time, and am so thrilled to say it’s officially coming to fruition on ConscienceCoupable’s third birthday (which is December 13th, in case you didn’t mark it in your calendar for some strange reason). See you all on Tuesday with the big reveal!..a white triangle will mark the spot…
That was A Kid Rock lyric in case you grew up under a ro…well isn’t that unfortunetely repetitive

The time has finally come, to conclude our european adventure on the blog and I’m kinda bummed about it. The past couple of weeks have been filled with not so great news, and reliving the amazing moments we had while away, felt like a nice escape and kept me hopeful for more of them to come ahead. I have to stop the sobbing and self pity, I’m starting to bum out the very readers I’m trying so hard to amuse with my butt jokes. Besides, we’re not quite as done with the Eurotrip as I’m leading on. To celebrate the third anniversary of ConscienceCoupable we have been working on something new and extra special that I cannot wait to share with you all… but until then let me tell you about the last stop of our European road trip.
Paris is where the best Pain au Chocolat lives. It is also where the fashion houses I am most devoted to came to inception, and where their creative teams remain today. What else can I tell you about Paris?…The food is something else, the garments and the artistry behind them are respected the way I feel they always should be, and my favourite lady lives there. Her name is Eiffel, and she sure is a sight for sore eyes. There is also the Louvre, that I’m saving for a future trip when I start caring appropriately about the kind of art that I cannot wear. It is home to my favourite vintage shopping (Didier Ludot), my favourite cheese cake (it’s at Hotel Costes, you GOTTA try it), and my favourite memories after this trip with my husband & parents. We had a pretty unbelievable time, and I’m sure if you have visited the city of lights you might share a similar experience….and if you haven’t all I can say is lucky you, because you have a lot to look forward to. Though it has nice to have been home the past week or so, my vagabond spirit has started to chime up, and we are off on the road again tomorrow. I can’t help it..there’s just so much to see!

I am not a resident of the USA, but I don’t think I need to be to share with you all that I have been pretty upset these past couple of days. The results, of what can only be described as a an ugly election ended in a way that left me dumbfounded. I am heartbroken for my gender, for every minority and group who has been severely wronged in the process, for our planet, but mostly because I thought people who share the opinions of the elected president were themselves a minority, and was apparently very wrong. Now, hate stemming from racism to homophobia to xenophobia to misogyny has been validated in a big way, and I fear we’ve already started to feel the consequences. I am tired of seeing nasty social media posts, not so funny memes, and anymore negativity coming from either side, therefore I swore I wouldn’t discuss this with you all today. Guess I couldn’t help myself. I just wanted all who feel as I do, to know that you are not alone. Our generation, the millennials, chose differently, and I find a bit of solace in that, as WE believe in progress and a brighter future for ourselves. Finally, to every woman out there, that cannot help but be heartbroken, due to what this represents for our sex, I am with you, and I feel your pain. I am with her, and I cannot help but think with conviction that if the her in question was a him, we wouldn’t be facing what we are today…
This brings me to what I actually wanted to talk to you about today. The longest-reigning British monarch, and female head of state in world history, who also happens to be my new fave strong female character on the telly, Queen Elizabeth II. Don’t mind the feminist segway as I tell you about what I’ve been binge watching obsessively, The Crown. I found it fitting to discuss my love and devotion for the television program, with this post from our time in London, but now that I’ve ranted about the election for a paragraph I feel I should try to keep it short. Queen Elizabeth is a badass, and has been since 52. Any woman that can raise a family, be a loving wife, and find time to do her job, stand up to Winston Churchill and rule a country on the weekends, is one I can look up to. I realize the show is a relatively fictional work, but having a female ruler and this as early as 1558, is not fiction at all, and this notion bring me much pride and sorrow all at once. How can we in 2016, be so antiquated in our thinking? How am I back here again? Monarchy isn’t for everyone, but I tend to agree for what it stands for in this instance. The UK is one beautiful place. I know you can’t tell from the white houses we shot in front of, but it truly is, and not only aesthetically speaking. They’ve made their own set of mistakes, but they have been getting it right for a long time, and for that I give them credit where it is due. All to say we had a lovely time visiting London, and cannot wait to return. I am proud to have, one strong lady on my dolla’ bills, and hope every nation feels a similar sense pride one day. God Save the Queen!…really, could I have ended this any other way?
