Why I Started My Blog

The present has me thinking a lot about why I started this blog in the first place. A lot of people think this is easy and rewarding, but it can be exactly the opposite at times. I have my days where I just want to give up, but I never do. There's something about it that has just kept me going and there are a lot of reasons behind why I started my blog and why I continue to write.

Thankful For You... & Shoes

With Thanksgiving behind us now, we can begin to prepare for the next set of holidays. This means decorating, cooking (and consuming) delicious food, and of course, picking out the best gifts for our friends and families. All these holidays help us reflect on what's really important: love.

Apartment-Wear You've Been Dreaming About

I think one of my biggest dreams is to have an adorable apartment or home one day. So, I've been letting myself dream. I want a coffee table that I can put cute books on. I want a bathtub so I can use bath bombs all the time. And no, I do not have a bathtub right now *cries*. I want the whole place to be funky and minimalistic at the same time. But, for now, I'm living in a dorm, so I decorate the best I can; I make do with my little bamboo plant and framed photos.

Dani from Mermaid Waves: Chicago's Fashionista

I cannot even begin to express how excited I am to have interviewed Dani. You may know her from her personal style blog, Mermaid Waves. This girl has a lot going for her and I was shocked to find out she is younger than me! Dani's outfits have been featured on numerous sites like Nylon, Refinery 29, and Teen Vogue, just to name a few. Serious goals; am I right?

Embrace Your Inner Unicorn

I have a new analogy: I want to be a unicorn in a flock of ponies. Quote me on that. There are so many things that have influenced my creativity these past few months. This new environment has been a scary adjustment a lot of the time, but I cannot deny that it has sparked something in me. I like looking at the atypical, unique traits that myself and other's possess. It makes people interesting.

Maria Poggi: Singer, Songwriter & Best Friend

We don't have to tell people we are best friends, they already know it; she's been my #1 since I was three years old. And today, I get to publish this interview with her! I couldn't be happier to have Maria as my first interviewee.  Trust me, she's not just amazing because she's my best friend. She's more than that. She's been writing songs since she was in elementary school, always singing in the car or shower, and inspiring me and other's with her music constantly.

How I Stay Happy & Motivated

Despite living in a cramped dorm and a cold city, it's very important for me to be positive. Over the past few months here, I have collected things I love to make myself feel more at home. I have pictures in cute frames that remind me of all my great adventures and the people that I love. I have a bamboo plant and a little pumpkin for decoration. But, my favorite things are the quotes that grace my window sill and wall.

The Best Basics Under $25

Sometimes, great fashion is hard to come by. But, we don't have to have the most original pieces all the time! In my eyes, there are a lot of times where simple is better. And there is also nothing better than having a closet packed with basic pieces that can work with any outfit. 
How about basics for under $25? Sounds good to me!

Go Blog Social Conference

Yesterday, I had the amazing opportunity to attend the Go Blog Social conference here in Chicago! We heard from local, inspirational women about their business, blog, Instagram, podcast, you name it. Essentially, the GBS team put a bunch of girl bosses in one room! More than 50 creatives and bloggers attended, and I was one of them: how exciting is that?
