Netflix and Chill and Reminiscing on Birthdays Past

Hi y’all! Because I am still resting and staying relatively cooped up, I decided to start watching the new show on Netflix called “Lupin.” I’m really enjoying because I love the French language and heist movies. The combination of the two is the perfect thing to get my mind going as my body relaxes.

I can’t help but reminisce, because my birthday is this week, and one year ago I was jetting off to Paris on a solo adventure. This year, I am living in New York, which is an adventure in and of itself. Yet I feel a little sad that global travel, and travel in general, is not what it was last year.

I found myself looking for flights to Miami, the Bahamas, and Punta Cana – anywhere warm and sunny. But I just don’t feel right about taking a birthday trip this year.

However, maybe this is for the best. I have made one or two girlfriends in the City, and we are going to celebrate by exploring Manhattan. I feel grateful to not have to spend my birthday alone. Even though last year I was alone by choice, and I enjoyed myself greatly, I felt a little lonely wandering the streets of Paris. I look forward to making this birthday a little bit more social, despite the circumstances.

It has been an incredible year for me. I moved across the country in the midst of a pandemic and found open, loving arms here to hold me. I also feel so thankful to be able to stay in contact with Austin friends from time to time.

I posted some new pictures on my Tryst and Twitter. I hope you like them!

XO,

Lola

Thoughts After a Hot Bath

Hi guys, and happy Friday Eve! I am warm, clean, and smelling like lavender oil from my bath. Today, I didn’t do much besides clean my flat and lay in bed with a heating pad wrapped around my tummy (sorry if that’s TMI, but being a woman has its necessary pains.)

I had planned to visit the Met Cloisters today, because I absolutely love the medieval museum’s architecture and strangeness. But I just didn’t have the energy for it, and I didn’t want to force anything. So I stayed home and enjoyed it very much!

I left the house around 9 AM to buy cat food, and the weather was stunning. I expected the New York winter to be truly unforgiving, and it has been at certain times, but today it was a perfect winter day. The sun was out, but it was still cold and crisp. Even now, I have my window open and am feeling the chilly air on my skin, which is still hot from my bath.

I made pesto and pasta for dinner (yum) and am now brewing some tea (oh no, I almost let it over steep!) Tonight, I plan to continue my relaxing mood and write in my journal.

I hope that you are all also enjoying the simple pleasures in life, regardless of what imperfections abound in all of our lives. Today I feel blessed to be a part of lives of truly special individuals who make me feel safe and secure, even when the world seems to be getting wilder and wilder.

Thanks for your time in reading this! XO,

Lola

Bacon, Egg, & Cheese (in NYC)

How wild it is that I have been a New Yorker for seven months, and I just tried my first bacon, egg, & cheese sandwich? To me, time has flown, and although I still feel quite new here, I am finally feeling settled.

For example, I have friends now! Just a few, but a few is all I really need. I have a manicurist, an esthetician, and a psychiatrist and therapist, all here in NYC. The fact that I have to take a one-hour subway ride to the Bronx to see my wax specialist is no problem, because I enjoy exploring different areas of New York.

The real downside is that my gentlemen friends from Austin and I are in effect separated not only due to space, but the annoying pandemic. I wonder when people will feel safe traveling. I, for one, do feel safe traveling, but my personal opinion matters little when others are overwhelmingly against travel. Plus, I really don’t want to quarantine after returning or arriving anywhere – what a bummer!

Today is a pretty relaxed day for me. I am wearing silky pajamas and drinking a Topo Chico. I am taking this quiet time to check in on the blog, and update my Twitter and Tryst pages. It’s good to have some administrative time.

I’m thinking of visiting the Met tomorrow, so I can enjoy some relaxing art viewing, and get out of the house (I use the term “house” loosely.)

Wishing you all a nice day, and thanks for your support! XOXO,

Lola

Happy New Year!

What do you want to happen in 2021?

I feel like the answer to that question may vary throughout the year, but it is generally a question I want to keep near the forefront of my mind.

And I am also finding ways to make each day fit into my goals. I donโ€™t want to stress myself out too much this year though, by focusing so much on lists ๐Ÿ˜‹ Iโ€™ll still make them, constantly, and buy stationary to write them on ๐Ÿ˜›

No, I seriously aim to feel good about my choices. And make good choices, too. (If that makes sense?)

Canโ€™t wait to hear from you!

Where to Find Me

Hi guys,

I feel like I’ve lost touch with some folks who I used to know during my various travels, so I wanted to check in.

I can be found in New York and the tri-state area, but I can be flown out to you. The biggest request is that we ensure an established connection, that starts with a small amount of commitment and we can get to know each other and talk together in a private setting.

Make sure that you follow me on Twitter at Kittylola15 and on Switter at Kittylola.

I’m happy to see the value in WordPress and I’m investing in a higher-end website ๐Ÿ™‚ The link is being shared on my socials.

If you are someone who is totally new to my page, maybe you have no idea what I’m about. Then this post is for you. I am someone who wants to grow my worldliness, knowledge of the finer things in life, and just experience good things. I never miss a chance to better myself mentally and spiritually, and I like to share my worldview with discerning gentlemen. Spending time with people I respect makes me truly happy. I am in possession of great conversation skills and I genuinely enjoy meeting new people and having fun in life.

I can’t put a price on my happiness and independence. I value my life and everyone in it so much it’s hard to put into words, but once I divide my self from the people in my life, I can’t imagine anything else – so yes, I am happy to those who are wondering ๐Ÿ™‚

I am looking forward to 2021 and meeting new people and connecting with friends!
