Winter Coats

It's difficult to have foresight. I wonder if this is a trait that can improve with time, like a sign that you are an adult. I've been thinking of this tonight in my apartment in Austin, as I shop for winter coats online. The temperature dropped, as it always does, even in the middle of … Continue reading Winter Coats

Halloween Costumes

I have never really been into dressing up for Halloween. My brother wasn't either, even though our elementary school put on a huge costume parade every year for the parents to come watch. Our school was really into Halloween, which is probably why we didn't give up on dressing up all together. One year, my mom could … Continue reading Halloween Costumes

Pirate Bikes

One of the reasons I chose to go to Southwestern University was the bikes. It's something they're known for- they call them the Pirate bikes. All over Southwestern's beautiful, Hogwarts-y campus are bright yellow cruiser bikes. If you find one, you just get on it and ride to your next class or dorm. When I saw … Continue reading Pirate Bikes

TV Show Round-Up

Fall is such a great time for TV. I remember when I was a kid, all of a sudden it would be summer- the perfect time to watch TV, right? I never went to camp, I didn't have school- so I had tons of free time and a TV in my bedroom. And yet Sabrina The … Continue reading TV Show Round-Up

Confessions of an Former Makeup Addict

Hey everyone! The other day I was googling 2016 holiday collection previews for Sephora. I wanted to see what sets and cool new releases would be coming out in the next few weeks. I had some luck but knew I should turn to Instagram, where there are accounts completely dedicated to this stuff- girls who get the … Continue reading Confessions of an Former Makeup Addict

Quotes Book 2

Hello! After proofreading one of my blog posts like a good little blogger, WordPress recommended one of my own posts to me and I couldn't help but check it out. One of the perks of running this site for so many years is that I have forgotten some of the things I had posted. This … Continue reading Quotes Book 2

I Can’t Blog While I Write My Books

Hey everyone! Recently I purchased a laptop to replace my extremely fatigued 2007 iMac. I was stubborn in my loyalty to my desktop Mac, seeing as the computer had seen me through six moves in two states, the entirety of my five-year college career, and literally hundreds of writing attempts. An iMac is not a particularly … Continue reading I Can’t Blog While I Write My Books

Summer Faves- Books, TV, Blogs!

Hey everyone! This has been a weird month for me. It's moving quick, and things are different around here than normal. I've stopped cooking, since it's summer and now Scott and I just eat vegan cheeseless pizza and salads like every single night (curse you Amy's for making the most delicious pizza I've had since … Continue reading Summer Faves- Books, TV, Blogs!

Vegan Chili Recipe

Time for chili! Forget that it's summer and about to be 100 degrees everyday (at least here in Texas where I live)!! It's the perfect time for some hot comfort food! Haha. This recipe is a total winner and also super easy. And by super easy, I mean you barely have to do any work and … Continue reading Vegan Chili Recipe

World’s Greatest SUNBLOCK

I would say I'm a pragmatist So it makes sense to me to base all (or at least plenty) of my decisions on logic and reason. Take wearing sunblock. We all know we should do it, but it falls by the wayside unless we're actually at the beach or floating the river. But the truth is … Continue reading World’s Greatest SUNBLOCK

Country Club Khaki

Ah, another nail polish post.   I absolutely love nail polish. I wasn't allowed to wear it until I was in high school, and the second I could, I promptly got my nails done every week during lunch with my babysitting money (although 9th graders weren't technically allowed to leave campus). Since then, I've gotten really … Continue reading Country Club Khaki
