While today is National Lazy Day, I am probably not having a lazy day right now. If you’re reading this, I am probably at orientation for graduate school, because that is what I have on the schedule bright and early today. But for today’s post, let’s pretend that I am having a lazy day and what that would look like for me. You know, if I could’ve had one today.Read More
So my boyfriend had another wisdom tooth removed before the weekend started, and I believe that this is the last one. The loving, doting girlfriend that I am, I took the weekend off of work to make sure that he was going to be okay. If you’re reading this, it is probably obvious that we both survived the weekend, and if you’re interested in seeing how, you can keep reading.Read More
At the end of the day, my outfit really came together for the 70’s event, but would you believe me if I said I really struggled to find something to wear? It’s true; I went through about two-thirds of the mall before I found something I liked, and even then I pitter-pattered around the store for about 30 more minutes feeling unsure about it. For today, I thought I would go through my thought process in choosing my outfit for the event and how I got really lucky at the end of the day.Read More
Yes, another blog post about my beloved dog, Damian the Wigglebutt. Because I love him, and now that I’ve moved out and don’t get to see him very often, I miss him. It hurts a lot more, because dogs don’t really understand the concept of how cell phones work. So not only does he not recognize that I’m on the screen of the phone when I video chat my sister, he refuses to even look at the camera. I would like to believe it’s because he is sad to hear my voice and not see me, but who knows?
It might surprise you to read that this post isn’t entirely about my dog. For our anniversary, my attentive boyfriend bought me a fancy camera. I say fancy because I’ve only had the more affordable digital cameras growing up, and he got me an advanced, professional DSLR camera. He overheard a conversation where I was talking to my sister about how she broke mine, and was sweet enough to get me one as a gift.
That being said, I am now trying to learn and understand how to properly use this new camera. I’m at the point where I will probably invest in a class if I can find the time. For today though, I wanted to talk about Damian because when it comes to photography, he is my muse. No one makes me want to whip out my camera more, and it is also painful because when I do, he will refuse to look at the camera 85% of the time. But I still love him, and that’s why he is being celebrated today, on National Dog Photography Day.Read More
So this weekend wrap-up is coming a little later than I expected, because I needed Monday to recover. Why? Instead of having a whole weekend in Tampa like I originally intended, I ended up traveling back and forth all in one day. Other than that, the weekend was pretty uneventful, but if you want to know all about it, you should keep reading. You might just read about how I react when I meet someone I consider famous.Read More
Here’s the long story, short: I had a friend who was reviewing personal styling services, and she needed a short person to try out Short Story Box. At 5 feet, I was a great fit. Now, I look forward to putting on a fashion show for my sisters and grandma every month, and I wanted to share my favorite buys today.Read More
Am I cool enough for a round 2? Probably not, but I’m going to do it anyway. If you’re interested in knowing my answers to some of Vogue’s 73 questions, keep reading.Read More
My boyfriend has this joke where the only time I’m not talking is when I’m eating. Then when someone asked him for advice in getting a girlfriend, his answer was something along the lines of, “You play with her hair and you give her ice cream. Then she realizes that she might like you as much as she likes ice cream and then you go from there.” That might not have been an exact quote, but my point in telling all this is that I really love and appreciate foodRead More
For today’s blog, I wanted to write about the huge impact that my sisters have on my everyday life. If you’ve been following along with me, it shouldn’t be a surprise that I could not imagine a life without them, even though I had a few years of being an only child before they came along.Read More
Am I cool enough to be in Vogue? Probably not. Neither am I ambitious enough to answer these questions on camera in one shot because I’m not so great on camera. What I am going to do is answer these questions and give you some more insight into the person that I am, which is probably sunshine in a little nerd. Even though I’ve tried to break it up into consumable chunks, I can’t promise that my answers will be nice and concise, but they should give you some insight into who I am and what matters to me.Read More
