Getting to know. . . me!

Hi there! I’m Cosmo. I’m a vegan mom of 2. I have a BS in Design majoring in fashion design.  My favorite color is blue. I am the type of person who takes pleasure in taking pleasure in things. 

Henry Tilney had it right when he told Catherine.

“You have gained a new source of enjoyment, and it is well to have as many holds upon happiness as possible.” 

Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

I am a sucker for self-evaluations and personality tests. I love, love, love, them. I’m a 1st born. Pisces, Year of the Sheep, Ravenclaw. Energy Number 3, I am ENFJ, Four Tendencies Questioner(with upholder qualities), I’m an enneagram 4w3, Four Temperaments Sanguine, Melancholic, Choleric, and Quality Time is my love language. Also, I seem to have chronic GRF(Golden Retriever Face).


I love bikes. My family has had so many bikes. I used to run the L.A. Cycle Chic https://lacyclechic.blogspot.com/ Blog way back when I started this blog the first time. I currently only have 2 bikes.

I love the ocean, but I am scared of fish and terrified of Jellyfish and so I once bought a surfboard and tried to learn to surf. I was terrible at it. It is a shockingly difficult sport. I can’t turn, duck dive, or turtle roll, but I loved every exhausting, embarrassing minute I spent on the water. I had to sell my board when I moved across the country and away from the ocean. I’m going to get another one as soon as I can.

I love words. I love saying words. In almost all languages. I wish that I spoke more than just one but I’m always trying to learn more. I can say some words in French, Italian, Japanese, Korean. Because I love the sounds of words I watch a lot of shows with subtitles. Korean Dramas are my addiction and I have been A.R.M.Y. since 2013. My favorite dramas so far are Coffee Prince and Fated to Love You(Korean Version). I’m V-Hope biased, my friends may try and tell you it’s Suga but I will not accept that.

Skincare is such fun. I love my 10-step Korean skincare routine. You see, my main love language is quality time, but my secondary love language is touch. When I’m doing my routine I am getting quality time with myself and loads of gentle and loving touch. It can be hard because I’m vegan and so many Korean companies sell in China but there are definitely companies who don’t.

I’m a nervous plant mom. I have killed a lot of plants but currently, I’m keeping 13 plants alive. Every time I see a pretty new plant I want to bring it home. Summer Rayne Oaks was a long-time fashion icon for me but when I saw her apartment I lost my mind. She is Urban Jungle goals.

I love dancing and music. That’s me up there flashing my satin boxers while I swivel. I like to sing but I’m not good at it. I play ukulele very badly but I think it is the happiest sounding instrument in the world and just tuning it and hearing my dog has fleas makes me smile. If I could play any other instrument in the world it would be the harp. I think it is the sweetest and warmest sounding instrument. I used to teach Swing Dancing when I was in college.

I love to eat. I don’t cook, but I collect recipes that I will cook if someday cooking becomes fun.

I love Dodge Challengers, Ford Mustangs, and Volkswagen Karman Ghias. I hate driving though. It’s weird that these cars give me such feelings.

Honestly, I could go on, and on, and on, but of all the things I enjoy clothes are my long-time favorite. I love to wear them and look at them and touch them. Before I had kids clothing was my career and now that my kids are bigger I still can’t think of anything I’d rather be doing. That is what I’ll be posting the most about here.
