New Year, Slightly New Me

By | January 4th, 2018|#trending, to do list, wise words|

Happy New Year, friends! Can someone tell me how 2018 crept up so quickly? Normally, I’m not a huge believer in New Year’s resolutions. If I have specific goals in mind, I try to set and accomplish them throughout the year, rather than “saving them up” for January. This year, though, I’m going to make [...]

To Do List: STORY NYC

By | July 27th, 2017|#trending, to do list, uncolored reviews|

Imagine a retail store that changes its vibe as often as you change yours? Enter STORY. My friend and I stumbled upon STORY, a retail space in NYC, while we were walking to Chelsea Market. We were drawn in by the eccentric, colorful windows. When we walked in, we were greeted by a super friendly [...]

Making Moves

It has been almost two weeks since I last posted to the blog, which makes me so sad! But, my temporary disappearance from the blogosphere has been for an exciting reason. If you haven't heard yet, I'm moving to Connecticut! I've accepted a position as Junior Copywriter for vineyard vines in Stamford. Needless to say, [...]

Work it Out: The Best Playlists for Every Workout Mood

By | March 31st, 2016|#trending, pop culture, to do list|

While most people swear by Spotify or Pandora, I've been a diehard 8tracks groupie for years now. Granted, their app isn't the most reliable in regards to technical issues, but I swear by the content. You can use tags for any mood, artist, activity, etc. Even your most obscure moods will find an accompanying playlist on 8tracks. [...]

Love for Humanity

Last week, I visited one of my favorite hidden gems: Humanity Boutique in Lowell. My friend (and, you'll notice, occasional photographer) Katie grew up in the next town over, so she knew about the cute shop long before I did. She brought me with her to scope it out one day, and I immediately loved [...]

Three years ago to this day, I was getting ready to board a flight to Barcelona, Spain, where I would proceed to experience the best four months of my life. While I am on the verge of being blinded by jealousy as my younger classmates prepare for their own semesters abroad, I decided to take [...]

Bingeworthy: My Netflix Picks

If you're anything like me, the onset of winter weather means one thing: hibernation. For those days and nights when you can't even fathom opening the door to get the mail, Netflix is your salvation. Forget the stinging of the midwinter wind on your cheeks - instead, go for the stinging of your eyes as your [...]

Gifts That Give Back

"'Maybe Christmas,' he thought, 'doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!'" - The Grinch This is my favorite quote to repeat every holiday season. It also happens to come from one of my all time favorite movies. I think this is something we all tend to forget during the hustle and bustle of this [...]

Cyber Monday

Happy Cyber Monday, everyone! This is the one day a year I give myself free reign (within reason, of course) to fill those online carts and ACTUALLY go through with submitting my credit card info. Did I say the one day? Maybe I meant one of many days. Whatever. ;) Since I'm getting a later start on my Cyber Monday [...]
