Life Update // three news items

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve given you any updates on my life. This is mostly because I haven’t had any big updates lol…everything has been fairly monotonous for the past few months. I have honestly been growing restless for a while; after flying back and forth between California and Pennsylvania all four years… Read more »

Putting on a crinoline: WORTH IT.

via. Can we just take a moment to indulge me in one of the things I love the most in the world? I ADORE fashion history, especially 1700-1940 (lol at this huge range of fashion eras…but considering how old civilization is, 240 years isn’t really that much right?). I found this pin on Pinterest and… Read more »

Eggs are the best of all breakfast foods. 04. The best feeling mornings are the cold ones where you can snooze in bed under a… Read more »

Park picnic + guinea pig children

Ilhan and I decided that the guineas needed to see some sunshine and it was just too beautiful of a day to put it off. We whipped up a quick lunch and picked up these mini individual bottles of wine and just sat around in the grass for an hour or so. PS. Remember to… Read more »


You guys, I saw this video last week and I cried my eyes out. EVERYONE should watch this because it is very powerful; I never realized that there was a point in my life when “like a girl” changed it’s meaning and it’s heartbreaking that it did.  I’m going to start hashtagging everything I do… Read more »
