WHY INSTAGRAM IS MORE THAN A PLATFORM

IMG_0803

As you guys probably saw on my social media this week, I just got back from my mini trip to San Francisco with my partner and our close friend. I had an amazing experience, all condensed into two days, and I had a great deal of fun sharing some of the things we did with you…

HOME + LIFESTYLE ESSENTIALS FOR FALL

IMG_0606

You all know I have been inching towards being an all-around lifestyle blog. You also know that I have been working on finishing every last detail of my house to make it perfect for a home tour (finally). Well, we are one step closer to that home tour! Here is a little curation of all…

SHE WILL KISS YOU TILL YOUR LIPS BLEED

I’ve been in a huge Regina Spektor mood lately. I’ve been listening to her for seven years or so, and I feel that I can always relate to her music, especially her older albums (Soviet Kitsch and Songs are the best), and lately I have been feeling pretty magical and light, putting on her records alone in…

WALKING AROUND IN OUR SUMMERTIME CLOTHES (WITH ZAFUL)

_MG_6210

I abhor summer. Seriously. Between living in the middle of the desert, having the sun beat down on me on my daily bike ride, and having close to nothing to wear, summer is the absolute worst for me. It is so difficult to pull off summer outfits as a minimalist. We thrive on creative layers and sweaters….

HOW TO WARD OFF YOUR LOCAL FUCKBOYS

lmao

Every girl knows the drill. Post something opinionated or “not feminine,” and there’s always some elitist male waiting to clap back at you. Whether it is posting a body-positive feminist article, a photo of you out with your friends, or even something as harmless as having an opinion about a new movie coming out, it…

I HAVE SOME THINGS TO CONFESS

_MG_5372

There’s something I can say with absolute certainty: I, in this moment, am the happiest I have ever been. But another thing I am certain of is that I fought to get to this point. This is a post with some confessions. Confessions that I have wanted to disclose for a very, very long time….

LITTLE THINGS: BRALETTES

IMG_0253

I hate boobs. Okay, correction: I hate my boobs. They get in the way, they aren’t cute, and they can make clothes look weird. I have been proudly braless since I was a sophomore in high school (meaning no underwires/uncomfortable weird tit contraptions with the occasional exception once in a blue moon when my chest…

LITTLE THINGS: SOCKS

  This mini series has been a test of consistency for me. I want to see how capable I am of doing scheduled posts, and I also want to see if you guys like it (let me know in the comments if you want to see posts on a regular schedule!). We talked last week…

LITTLE THINGS: MY LAPEL PINS

IMG_0176

Being a minimalist, I usually stray from collecting little things unless they are truly meaningful and important to me. I almost never wear jewelry, I only like owning makeup I use every day, and I only like rotating through the same few bags. However, there are some little things that are my vices, and I…

GLOSSIER HALOSCOPE + BOY BROW DEMO

LEAVE ME A COMMENT BELOW IF YOU LOVE THIS POST ♡ My New Years’ resolution for 2015 was to “master a new talent.” After a few days of thinking, I decided I wanted to learn how to be “good” at makeup. I spent that whole year trying new things, practicing, and making my first youtube makeup…
