Copycat Confession

Do you ever wonder where trends come from, in the time between their nonexistence and when every other person is trying it out for themselves? Occasionally you can catch a glimpse of the start of something that becomes popular- think of elementary school when that first kid in your class came back from a hot… Continue reading Copycat Confession

Tips for the fashionably late

There is nothing I love more than a weekend getaway. This weekend I whisked myself away to one of my girlfriends' cabins about two hours away from home out in the middle of nowhere. We made brownies and peach mojitos, roasted marshmallows over a bonfire, and spent the day basking in the sun on the… Continue reading Tips for the fashionably late

Things I Learned from Being Loved

I think it's fair to say that the majority of us have had the experience of being in a bad relationship or being the one who "cares too much", whether while dating a person or simply just being in a position where you like someone and they don't like you back, especially in the casual… Continue reading Things I Learned from Being Loved

Sun-Kissed Suggestions

I really like those books that describe a pale woman's skin with words like "porcelain" or "alabaster" or any other artistic sounding word because I personally am used to hearing things like "Casper" or "pasty" and really who has ever heard of a sexy ghost? Now I am not saying that there's anything wrong with… Continue reading Sun-Kissed Suggestions

Last Minute Lovebirds

As kids, Valentine's Day was always the best day of the year, because it meant free chocolate at school. It also meant you had a chance to tell your crush you liked them (which is something I never did, I was the msn-only kind of girlfriend #goodgirlsclub).... But as we get older, people start to… Continue reading Last Minute Lovebirds

The Ugly “C” Word

The word I'm thinking of is 6 letters long. What did you think I meant?! You got it- cardio. I know it's what we were all thinking! Don't get me wrong, I love being active and I do love working out. But no matter how bomb my playlist is, after about 5 minutes into running,… Continue reading The Ugly “C” Word

Tales of a Hockey Wife (pt. 2)

I'm snuggled up on my couch live streaming babe's game on my laptop (the laptop I should be doing homework on...), but so happy to finally be able to catch a game. We both put our jobs first, and I'm often working or in school when he has a game. So today I am beyond… Continue reading Tales of a Hockey Wife (pt. 2)

Tales of a Hockey Wife (pt. 1)

*disclaimer: I am not a wife. Or a fiancΓ©. This season, my boyfriend is playing in the EBEL in Europe. I sat in the bleachers, slightly flushed because I have a habit of dressing for icy temperatures. Basketball is not exactly my cup of tea, but spending a few hours catching up with good friends..… Continue reading Tales of a Hockey Wife (pt. 1)

REVIEW: salute to swimsuit sites

I know that summer is ending, but don't be sad! The silver lining is that bathing suits often go on sale at the end of season, so you can prepare for a quick winter vacay or next year's summer months! If you've noticed swimsuit trends online lately, you'll see that the classic itsy bitsy teenie… Continue reading REVIEW: salute to swimsuit sites

Crunch time Cardio

I don't know what I dislike more: having a busy day and deciding to skip the gym, despite how much I wish I could go that day... OR going to the gym on a time crunch, only to leave feeling like I didn't use my time wisely enough. I'm a pretty 'thick' girl, so for… Continue reading Crunch time Cardio
