From my stories on Instagram and my blog posts as of lately, you guys may have noticed that I’ve been dabbling in homemade apothecary goods and hardcore skincare (if you haven’t noticed, check out my recipe for eucalyptus bath bombs). In the wake of recent health issues I have been fighting the past few months…

At long, long, long last, I have finally reached a point where I feel my house is ready for a little home tour for you guys! There are still some things that I want to replace or change, but the reality of decorating a home is that you are never finished. You are an evolving…

STILL GOTTA WAKE UP AND BE SOMEONE

I enjoy being alone. Outside of time with my partner and the occasional interaction with a friend or family member, I am always alone, in my own thoughts and quiet. I live alone and take in the silence while I work on the blog or do my homework. I read The New Yorker or write out my…

(hint: it’s not milkshakes.) Essentially, I grew up living at the dentist. Ever since fourth grade on, I was just always there. I was bullied by a lot of girls in elementary and middle school, and one incident left me with half of my front tooth left. I’ve felt very fortunate to have never felt…

Just posting a breezy summer look to share with all of you. I am extremely butthurt that it is still over 100 degrees here in the desert, despite the occasional cloudy day or storm. It seems that every summer here has been hotter and hotter, and my patience with everyday life deteriorates with every degree…

I love baths. Everyone has a method of calming themselves down when they are anxious or stressed, and mine is anything that involves water. I don’t really believe in horoscopes or anything like that, but in the off-chance that my horoscope actually represents my personality, I am a Pisces, so the bath obsession probably makes…

Okay, I’m back, I promise. Thank you all for your patience with me the past week or so, I know I have been MIA. I’ve been going through a lot in my personal life, and I knew that it would be the right thing to take a bit of a break. And shit, I really…

WHY INSTAGRAM IS MORE THAN A PLATFORM

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…

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…
