about me:


hiii! I'm melinda rodrigues ;) who am i? good question! here's what I know so far: I'm a very proud latina -who has hella awful spanish but amazing spanglish skills. i'm in my 30's and no i don't feel embarrassed i just don't know when you'll read this so I don't know if i should put my exact age (i am a Libra 1986 baby!). I am married, i birthed 2 beautiful boys, i live in boston (but not really in boston- 10 minutes out of the city), oh & of course i live in a wicked old house. & even tho i'm a home owner with a husband and kids- i still don't feel grown up. go figure. i swear too much and prefer sneakers over heels. i still like most of the music on the radio. 

after so many years of blogging, I felt tired of doing what everyone tells you that bloggers are supposed to do. I DON'T WANT TO EVER FEEL LIKE MY ONLINE PERSONA AND ME IN REAL LIFE ARE 2 DIFFERENT PEOPLE. ALSO, I JUST CAN'T WITH ALL THE WHEN TO POST RULES, MY CREATIVITY IS A STUBBORN queen who does not like to be rushed. plus, after all in my offline life I rebel against ALL the "NORMAL" rules I think are ridiculous. 

after lots and lots and lots of thinking (mostly anxiety driven thoughts) I have finally figured out what it was that I wanted for my blog. i want this space to purely be my creative outlet. I need a space where i can share inspirations, explore my creativity without feeling constrained to a theme. it has take me so long to get to this point...

 i am a 30 something year old college student, studying visual design, I have finally figured out what I want to do with my career. i feel like this is me honoring the hopes and dreams of the little girl who wanted to be an artist but got lost along the way. 

this is my story. my little space on the big world wide web. 

i want it to be as real as can be. 

on creating something real: 



  1. actually existing as a thing or occurring in fact; not imagined or supposed.

    "frida kahlo was a real person"

    synonyms:actual, nonfictional, factual, real-life; 

  2. (of a substance or thing) not imitation or artificial; genuine.

    "the earring was presumably real gold"

    synonyms:genuine, authentic, bona fide
