3 Things: Treat Yo Self

3 Things: Treat Yo Self

Cross Stitch by House of Miranda on Etsy Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about self-care. I know, “Self-care” sounds very #firstworldproblems, so I’m thinking of it as “Treat Yo Self.” Not in the expensive material goods sense, but in taking care of your mind, body and soul. It seems like it’s increasingly common to run ourselves ragged, to our…
3 Things: Caftans (and Jon Hamm, but mostly Caftans…)

3 Things: Caftans (and Jon Hamm, but mostly Caftans…)

Today I bring an obsession of mine to all of you: to be judged, praised or scoffed. I submit to you all, the Caftan. I’m not sure if my years-long love of caftans surfaced because of their comfort, my advancing age and girth, or just because I think they are so darn chic. I do know that the caftan first…

3 Things: Adulting is Hard

photo: The Odyssey I've been thinking about being an adult and what that means to me. In my mind, feeling like an adult always entailed things like buying my first car, buying my first house, having a job I used my degree towards, getting married, loss of a parent, etc. --there are just some things that really scream "ADULTHOOD".

My Iceland Adventure, Part One: Blue Lagoon, What to do in Reykjavik

I'm here today to tell you: you all need to go to Iceland. Go ahead, say it. "Iceland?!" It's the same response I got multiple times when friends asked where I was going on vacation. It's not a crazy response, as people tend to associate vacation with warm locales. But here's the thing, I really wanted to go somewhere different.…
3 Things: Happy Easter

3 Things: Happy Easter

When I was a kid, I always loved Easter. I mean, you woke up, came downstairs and there was a basket FILLED WITH TOYS AND CANDY waiting for you. That supposedly a rabbit brought you! I mean, Santa is a reach, but a rabbit bringing children baskets of chocolate and jelly beans is really just insane. And you got to…

3 Things: Spring Cleaning

Spring has sprung and this girl is in the midst of her spring cleaning. (Boo!) While some people are enjoying spring break, the only thing breaking here is my psyche. Because if I have to wash one more window, I'm gonna lose it, y'all. Sincerely. And it's going to be EPIC. I will say, this is a more intensive spring…
