All opinions are 100% mine. ]Finding the balance between being fashion obsessed and a bit of a hippie can be, well, a struggle. I love trying out the new trends and adding my own spin on them, but I also have a “save the world” mentality that fast fashion doesn’t always fit very well into. I want to make sustainable purchases to lessen the burden on the environment, but also express myself through my clothing and try new looks. And I think I’ve come up… View Post

As I’ve grown older, I’ve been focusing on investing in timeless fashion pieces that I won’t have to replace after a year. One area I’d been seriously lacking in is jewelry. I’m the queen of buying $3 dollar rings and $10 dollar necklaces. The problem? They’re beautiful but after a few wears they turn copper and give my skin a green tinge. I’ve recently bought myself a nice quality rings and have been gifted some delicate necklaces. What I’m lacking was statement jewelry. I recently had the opportunity to collaborate with Sequin Jewelry and try out a few of their pieces… View Post

I love Halloween. I’m 100% unashamed of that fact. I trick-or-treated until way past the “socially acceptable” age, love Hocus Pocus with all of my heart, and am all about ghouls and ghosts and goblins. Another thing I love? DIY-ing costumes. It’s infinitely more fun for me to get creative and come up with a fun costume with Halloween Makeup and clothes I already own than pick something up at the Halloween store. I have a few Halloween posts coming this year, but I wanted to kick things off by polishing up this post that was originally published in 2015… View Post

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of GMO Answers for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Growing up, I was never overly adventurous with my fashion. I was known for sending group texts that went something along the line of, “SOS, what are you wearing?!?!” in order to be sure I wouldn’t be too overdressed or underdressed.   And on the day to day, my outfit was generally the same. Sure, I might opt for a tee-shirt and scarf rather than a sweater one day, but that was about the extent of my adventuring.   One… View Post

I’ve been traveling a lot lately. Since May I’ve gone to New York twice, Seattle once, I leave for Omaha on Friday and the week after I get back from Omaha I’m heading to Buenos Aires so I’m all about finding new ways I can save money while traveling. Full disclosure: New York and Omaha are business trips, so my major expenses (flight + boarding) are covered, but other expenses add up if you’re not careful!   I love to travel, but my wallet isn’t nearly as fond of my adventures. I got my first job at fifteen and have been… View Post
