Next up is a piece originally published for CollegeFashionista in February 2016 -- "STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: A Modest Marvel". Enjoy!

You read that correctly! Mary and I have been clogging your newsfeed with our ramblings for one whole year! (Minus the brief hiatus, but who doesn't love a good comeback story?) We started this blog right after I had graduated college; we were balancing odd jobs but knew that writing was always going to be … Continue reading happy first birthday, the lipliner!
My favorite time to be with friends is in the car on a long drive. We’re not so focused on where we’re going or what we have to do once we’re there, rather, all of us in this small confined space. Honesty seems to bleed between the yellow lines. Eyes on the road, ears on each … Continue reading monday morning musings: times of transit

In an ideal world, we … Continue reading balancing work with…work
Happy Monday, everybody! To help you ease into the new week, today I present to you a nice, short ditty. I'll cut the preamble and get right to the part I want you to remember: A couple of days ago I was training someone at work, and throughout the duration of the shift, she hit … Continue reading a short anecdote to tell you we’re all learning
So as is quite apparent, summer has left us almost as quickly as it had arrived. I've got lots I'd like to accomplish in the following months: read the stack of books I picked up recently, self-publish a book of poems I've been working on (anybody a good doodler? I need one of those...), and maybe just … Continue reading september mood board ✌
