Full transparency

  In bringing my blog back to life, I’ve thought long and hard about what I want this space to be. I see it as a combination of things, a “lifestyle blog” if you will. I hope I can share my thoughts on anything and everything, whether that’s makeup tutorials, a  ...

New year, same blog

Oh, 2018. We’re 12 days into the new year and I’ve been telling myself for days that I would revisit my blog. After six months of successfully ignoring it, I wanted to get back into the swing of things and really give this blog thing a shot. And yet, here we are 12 days into 2018  ...

Back When We Were Kids

I am powered by music. I live for ‘New Music Fridays.’ I’m constantly looking for new artists and revisiting the ones I love. Music has always been a part of my life to the point that very specific songs mark certain chapters in my life. The second I hear them, I go back. I  ...

Go What You Oughta Go

Anyone that knows me knows that I rarely wear heels. It’s just not my thing. Yet, I wore heels during recruitment week as an incoming freshman at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. In hindsight, that was a really bad idea. I could barely walk home at the end of each day. I  ...
