So I have a secret. I don't really shop. I know, I know. What fashion blogger doesn't shop? Like being a vegetarian, I'm not a shop-a-holic for a number of reasons. Top two: I'm broke and I'm busy (welcome to college, friends). A close third is that I learned about the environmental impact of fashion last … Continue reading One Dress | Three Ways

New York Fashion Week
It's the most wonderful time of the year. No, not the holiday season. Better. It's New York Fashion Week! Once again, I'm holding down the fort here in North Carolina and not gracing the snowy streets of New York (sigh). I have been to exactly one fashion show in my life--during Men's Fashion Week this … Continue reading New York Fashion Week
Date Night + Blanket Scarves
A timeless trench coat polishes any look. It looks great worn open or all buttoned up, although, if you wear it open be sure to tie it in the back to ensure it maintains its shape! I styled my look around my shoes, which add a bright pop of Valentine's Day spirit in addition to being … Continue reading Date Night + Blanket Scarves
Traveling on a Student Budget
It's been a while since my last post! Sorry guys, but while everyone stateside was just picking up their books, over here we're closing in on mid-term time and my workload reflects that! I've got a few posts in the works, but I thought I'd post a few quick thoughts about traveling on the cheap. Study … Continue reading Traveling on a Student Budget
A Lazy Girl’s Guide to Good Hair
As someone who has battled her thick, curly, frizzy, disaster-area hair for all her life, I've learned a thing or two about the proverbial "good hair day." And while I enjoy spending time doing my makeup, my hair is another story. My hair probably spends an estimated 350 days a year in a high bun (usually … Continue reading A Lazy Girl’s Guide to Good Hair
Surviving Long-haul Flights
Sorry I've been a bit MIA recently! I've been busy settling into life in Australia and forgetting that the International Date Line exists. In total, my trip took about 30 hours from start to finish, and I think I slept about 5 hours altogether. Although I love flying and tend to find it relaxing, that … Continue reading Surviving Long-haul Flights
My Half Marathon Playlist!
With nearly twenty weeks of training under my belt, I think I've finally finished putting my race-day playlist together. My workout playlist (which I used on most runs during training) was a constantly evolving beast, which for most of training was just called "Workout 3" because it was the third in a series of workout … Continue reading My Half Marathon Playlist!
Banish the Blues
This afternoon, unexpectedly, I found myself wrestling the blues. We all know the feeling; an unhappy combination of grumpiness and glumness, with a large spoonful of lethargy and disinterest. It's that special kind of dejected mood that hits for no discernible reason and yet can't be easily shaken off. My weekend had been nice and slow-paced, … Continue reading Banish the Blues
SOS: Save Our [post-holiday] Skin!
If you're anything like me, after all the holidays are over, the smokey eyes wiped off and the diets ruined, you find yourself left with dull skin and some serious exhaustion. Even though my holidays tend to be a bit more low-key, I still find that the food, makeup and later nights show themselves on my skin. … Continue reading SOS: Save Our [post-holiday] Skin!
While scouring Pinterest for running inspiration (a new favorite hobby) I stumbled onto this website. As I was going through the list, #39 really resonated with me: "Find your reasons; come up with at least five reasons and keep them close to heart." I took a moment and thought about why I run: To help … Continue reading 5 Reasons
