January 14, 2014

You know that saying, “Some days you’re the bug, some days you’re the windshield.” Welp I’m going through a period of days where I’m the bug. As much as I try not to be, some things are out of my control and it just keeps happening. We all go through […]

See You in 2014!

I can’t believe we’re almost in 2014! No matter what your plans are tonight, remember that New Year’s Eve is the most overrated holiday of all time. You’ll think you’re going to dress up, wear all black, have a great manicure, smooch a Clooney look alike at midnight, and have […]

If You Get the Chance to Go to Charleston, Do It

December 17, 2013

Chris and I spent the weekend in Charleston for our five year (WHOA!) anniversary, and I have to say, that place blew my mind. Growing up in the Northeast, I’d never had the chance to go to a real Southern city with so much history. If you have an opportunity […]

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is tonight, which means you get to drool over the pretty wings, live performances, and outrageous lingerie that you would never wear.

Lipstick for People Who Hate When Lipstick Gets On Your Teeth

Change Your City, Change Your Life

December 4, 2013

I’m a firm believer that a new haircut can completely change your outlook on life (hence my favorite phrase ‘Change your hair, change your life’) but lately I’m realizing that a new city has the same rejuvenating effect. I was talking with a girl who just moved to Charlotte from […]

Why It’s Time to Stop and Re-evalute Your Friendships

December 1, 2013

Last night I spent three hours with a new friend having some food and pastries at one of my favorite spots in Charlotte. Though we had been talking for a good portion of the night, I left feeling energized and happy. I couldn’t believe how late it had gotten. Yet […]
