Lush Life


If there is one thing that calms me down (other than yoga) it's a long soak with a bath bomb from Lush. After a long snowy Monday, I was pretty thankful to be able unwind in a bath full of tropical blue water.

Love Your Body


With Valentine's Day right around the corner and being newly single, you'd think I would be a hot mess of insecurity. On the contrary, I feel pretty empowered. So I felt inspired to share what I've discovered recently.

Looking back, I was always a little insecure. I sprouted boobs and hips earlier than most in my class and my hair was curly and frizzy and absolutely refused to be tamed. Today I embrace those qualities I once despised. I have come to accept these qualities; even love them. This is what has truly made me happy.

I think about all the women out there, young and aging, who are insecure and uncomfortable with themselves. I'm dedicating this post to any woman who has ever been made to feel anything but beautiful by society. 

You are beautiful, ladies, you just can't see it yet.

Some of you might find this post a bit out of character or inappropriate, but to that I will say, "Hey, it's all for the kids, I'm trying to make a statement."

Scenes from the South End


I spent my Saturday exploring the South End. In my four years living in Boston, I've never really had the opportunity to hang out in this area so I decided to spend my day off wandering around. We started the day with brunch at Masa, took a little trip to the dog park and then ended the afternoon with some goodies from Blackbird Doughnuts.

As I walked along the cobblestone sidewalks, it felt as if I was in an entirely different city altogether. I'm always astounded by just how big Boston is for such a small city. There are so many spots that I haven't had the chance to see and I live here! I really hope to be able to explore a little more of my amazing city before I leave.

Philly


What an adventure this month has been! Right smack in the middle of my trip to Nashville, I was given the opportunity to interview for a Free People Home Office interview. While the position did not end up working out I had a fantastic time exploring Home Office with my good friend, Emma. The only way I could possibly describe my time at Home Office was that it was an absolute daydream.































Until next time Philly!

Suited Up


(Thrifted skirt, belt  and jacket, American Apparel bodysuit, Madewell backpack, Jeffrey Campbell for Free People boots, Free People bra)

If there's one thing I haven't played around with much, it's bodysuits. We've been getting a ton of bodysuits at the store I decided that it was time to have some fun! It was oddly warm so decided to pair it with long flowy skirt that I found at Savers a couple years ago along with a belt that belonged to my Mom. I went for a light denim jacket and my favorite lace up boots to give a bit of a rougher finish. 

This leather backpack is another obsession but I'll save that for another post.
