Harvest Salad

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I've already alluded to how I tend to find a food combo that works for me, and eat it non-stop until I can pretty much never touch it again. Well this blog posts pays tribute to my favorite salad when I lived in California, when life was as good as the Corner Bakeries were plentiful. [...]

New York City Bar Tour


The last time I was in New York City, my friends and I met up on a Saturday afternoon for barhopping at all the best craft beer bars, from the top of Manhattan down. It was a relaxed, fun way to spend the day, try out some new spots, and see the city along the [...]

Quirky Stationery

set editions 3

I stumbled across this stationery site and fell in love. Clever, dry and witty, it's all the drama that can be squeezed into a few pieces of paper. Plus, who doesn't love a notecard that says the things you're thinking but don't really want to say? A sampling of the line, if you'd like to [...]

The Mirror

As many of you know from my Twitter and Instagram feeds, this past weekend I attended the BlogHer 2014 conference in San Jose. The weekend was full of amazing speakers, insightful sessions, and strong, smart, passionate women and men. By far, one of the most touching moments of the conference was 'The Mirror.' There was [...]

Heart Swells

This week was full of highs and lows. For reasons I’ll address another day, my heart really ached. But what I love about ending the week this way, is that it reminds me that even the bad weeks are full of good moments. Sometimes, it’s the little things that get us through the big things. [...]

Now that I'm a few solid years into adulthood, I'm trying to make my home feel more like a home, and less like a temporary residence until the next city or neighborhood... which it also is, more often than not. (: Because a home is in the details, I've been focusing my first interior design [...]

Seven Things

Founder and editor of the fascinating site Brain Pickings, Maria Popova, recently shared seven things she's learned in seven years of reading and writing for the website. I thought they were really poignant and that you might find some meaning in them, as well. Maria partnered with the art subscription service Holstee to design this [...]

On Aging

I read a beautiful article over the weekend about a middle-aged woman's perception of her aging body. The impetus for the article, which sadly was a man who rejected the author because he preferred the bodies of younger women, ended up producing a piece which is how I would hope women come to look at [...]

Nordstrom Style Picks

Us Seattle girls looove our hometown-founded Nordstrom stores. Up until August 4, Nordstrom is running its anniversary sale, which means deals on nearly everything in the store. Here are a few of my favorite sale items: 1. Sexy boots to wear on a night out. 2. The perfect two-toned crossbody bag to match with everything. [...]

Heart Swells

This was a relentlessly busy week, but busy full of good things. The right things, I think. I celebrated my mom's birthday, spent time outside of the office catching up with my colleagues, accomplish a lot inside the office, and got long, restful nights of sleep. I even went to bed at 8 p.m. (!) [...]
