Chasing the Dream

Happy Independence Day, friends! We’ve enjoyed a too hot and then too rainy day off, but a day off nonetheless. You’ll find me sitting on the couch for the rest of the evening wishing that every Wednesday was a day off, because it’s a great way to break up the week!  I’ve been thinking a […]

Whether it’s swapping out foundation for tinted moisturizer, or tossing your straightener to rock your natural waves, summer has a whole different set of beauty standards. I wanted to […]

Almost Heaven

Another year, another birthday for my beautiful home state! I look forward to this day every year, because West Virginia takes up a huge part of my heart, and I love seeing people celebrate her.  Since I got all sappy last year, I thought I’d keep it short and sweet this year and hit you […]

Dark Days

Just as things were getting all warm, sunny, and bright, we got a brutal dose of reality this week. We lost two wonderful visionaries, two people that I’ve looked up to, two lives I’ve envied. Their lives are no more or less important than a stranger I pass on the sidewalk, just much more public. […]

February/March Favorites

Hi! Long time, no blog. It’s been a whirlwind of March birthdays and flu round 2 around these parts, but I’m finally settling down to give you guys some favorites. By my math, it’s been Winter in Ohio for literally six months, so it should come as zero surprise to you that my skin is […]

29 Years

Hi! I hope you guys had a great weekend! I turned 29 today, so I’ve spent a good portion of this week reflecting on 28 years of life, (that is so crazy to type out) and holy crap have I got some stories, haha. I’m going to keep it pretty simple on this dreary Wednesday, […]

Out Living

Hey guys! It’s been a minute, and I apologize. Truth be told, after the horrific events in Florida on Valentine’s Day, I felt like feigning positivity last weekend would’ve been just that, an act. I’m not going to get too political here, but I’ll just quickly say that I am so proud of those kids. […]
