Dark Times

Can you believe how quickly this month, let alone, this year has flown by? I blinked my eyes and it’s practically November! It’s safe to say I’ve fallen on dark times. Don’t be alarmed though, I’m only referring to the fact that I’ve changed my hair. Perhaps it’s my affinity for Riverdale or just the need…

Harvest & Entertain

It’s been established that fall is indeed in the air and I decided that the change in season needed to be celebrated with a proper dinner party. There is no better feeling than being able to get good company together over delicious food and a great cocktail, especially for festive occasions. The idea of hosting…

Falling Back into Action

I know what you’re thinking, another person that’s telling me that fall is the best season…. groundbreaking. But honestly, now that the heat has burned off, and if you’re in Chicago, the rain clouds have parted, it’s started to actually look and feel like Autumn is upon us. Fall is not just dedicated to infusing…

Turning Tables

Over the past few years, Instagram has grown leaps and bounds in terms of its popularity! Whether scrolling on my own, or working in the field, I’ve started to realize that just about everyone has an account…. or two…. or three. Instagram accounts fall under many categories. We all have a personal account, sure, but…

Changing Course

Earlier this week, I mentioned that my visit to Los Angeles was a huge success. Not only was it sunny and relaxing, but it represented a new path that I’m setting myself on. It’s a path I’d already been working on over the last couple of months, and getting back to blogging was a part…

TW Goes West

In all, California did not disappoint. Never short on good weather or a colorful photo opportunity, I couldn’t have asked for a better first visit.

Summer Late Bloomer

Before I begin, I wanted to give a quick shout out to everyone who has been reading and reaching out to me about the relaunch! I’ve always been lucky to have great support from my friends and family with all of my creative endeavors. Kind words and encouragement make doing projects like this worth it….

In Living Color

This summer, I was thrilled to be asked to write a story for an online magazine about my love for sharing color on my personal Instagram page! The team at Allegory Ridge reached out and it was a fantastic opportunity I could not pass up. I’ve attached my personal tips on achieving a color coordinated…

TexYass

The old saying goes “Everything’s bigger in Texas” and a weekend in San Antonio and Austin proved that right! If you’ve had the opportunity to study abroad, you know the friends you meet during that experience are the perfect travel companions. This visit reunited some of my study abroad crew and just like our time…

O-Canada-Duh!

After traveling outside North America in high school and abroad in college, I realized I had a lot of ground to cover in my own backyard. It shocked me that I hadn’t even been to neighboring Canada after all of these years. Last summer, I wanted change that! As a kick-off to adulthood, Vancouver became…

Under the Influence(r)

One of the reasons I’ve been hesitant to come back to the world of blogging has been the idea of entering an extremely crowded market. Let’s be honest with ourselves, Instagram is probably the most popular app on your phone. Whether you’re sharing a ridiculous meme, stalking the contestants of Bachelor Nation, or posting your…

You’ve been framed

Home decor has been such a love of mine for as long as I could remember. With IKEA practically being my second home since birth, I’ve always had a say in decorating ideas for each childhood bedroom and that’s only transferred as I’ve navigated designing my own apartments. My first apartment was a simple white-box…
