my tiny kitchen

My kitchen is a hallway. Honestly, calling it a hallway is generous. My kitchen can fit two people. When I first moved into this apartment in 2015, it didn’t feel like a huge deal: I was eating almost exclusively chicken, rice, and broccoli, so I figured having a tiny kitchen wouldn’t be too crippling. Then…

summer days with splendid

Hey everyone! Here’s a quick little summer look for you that I am excited about! This slip dress from Splendid is amazing and so comfortable — I love midi-length dresses, and this one is a great breathable cotton fabric and is my new go-to for the hotter months. This dress was even one of Refinery29’s…

a little summer bedroom refresh

I’ll be real with you: I’m not a huge fan of my bedroom. The carpet is brown and ugly, and that pretty much ruins it for me. However, the natural light makes me so very happy. I was reading an article last week about common home feng shui techniques, and I learned that it was…

spring gingham three ways

As of the past six months, I have realized that gingham is my new go-to pattern. When I was younger, I used to buy everything in stripes to the point that, when I hit high school, I vowed to never buy anything striped again, which lasted until my first year of college. I realize that when I…

a new spring outfit (featuring coach SS17)

There are two reasons I am not vegan: 1) macaroni and cheese; 2)¬†leather goods.¬†If you have even glanced at anything on this blog, the one thing that you know for sure about me is that I don’t fuck around when it comes to quality. That’s why I’ve taken one of Coach’s Spring/Summer 2017 bags in…

my current skincare routine

I think I am the only person in the world who hates going to Sephora. It’s sensory overload: a million different brands, associates selling you stuff left and right, catching a glimpse of myself in harsh lighting surrounded by 15-year-olds who know way more about makeup than I do. Lucky for me, I’ve nearly given…

CLOSET VOMIT IS 3 YEARS OLD!

My bank account was just automatically charged by my hosting service, which only means one thing: Closet Vomit is 3 today! Three years ago on this day, I swallowed my nervousness, my website was created, and it has been a tumultuous and exciting adventure ever since. I am still learning about myself and how to…

MY ANXIETY

This post isn’t pretty. Anxiety isn’t pretty. The photo above that you see is how I look in this exact moment, sitting in the exact same spot, hair half-damp, traces of makeup down my face, wearing only my giant NASA sweatshirt that I only seem to wear when I’m having a anxious or depressive episode….

HOW I DECORATE MY HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS (WITHOUT COMMITMENT)

My parents cared so much about making Christmas special for my siblings and I. Living in Detroit, it was magical waking up on Christmas morning to seeing snowfall out the window, causing a symphonic unison of creaking in our hundred-year-old home when we bolted down the stairs to see the tree aglow and adorned in…
