Summer Slump

Hi! I’ve been MIA for a month and it has flown by! We were guests at a wedding out of town, had a fun trip to the zoo, cared for friend’s cute cats all over town, and had about a million car problems. Summer has been sweltering chaos, both good (family, friends, Taylor Swift, Hanson, […]

Mini Skincare Haul

Disclaimer: This is not sponsored. I just really love Clinique.  Hey, hello! It’s been a minute, and I’ve got some explaining to do, but it’s kind of a downer so I’m going to keep it light today. It’s a rainy Saturday in Columbus, and I actually love and thrive in this type of weather. This […]

Hey guys! It’s been a minute, but I wanted to jump in a few days early and get into some July favorites.

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. […]
