lessons from liz

I was scrolling through Instagram the other day and in its depths I found one of those word pictures (totally not memes, as i’ve misidentified them previously) with a quote from Elizabeth Gilbert. You know, of Eat, Pray, Love  fame. I was going to write a whole post on this quote and how I’ve been feeling a bit messy lately. Then…

swimming with the sharks

If you’ve been here for a while, you probably know all about my cosmopolitan, socialite-like lifestyle. So when I say I spent Thursday and Friday night watching Shark Tank, there should be no surprise. It was a good thing I did though because it gave me an idea. finally.  It made me think of all the things I wish I…

smorgasburg, street art & taylor swift

In a turn of events, I actually did things this weekend so here I am to tell you all about them. Not surprisingly though, those events include going to the city to take lots and lots of pictures.

Remember when Hurricane Irene hit and the storm was raging, the winds were blowing and everything was just a hot mess? Then the next day, the sun was out and it was like a storm never ripped through at all? Yea. That’s what the Silent Auction felt like. I was non-stop yesterday; to the point where I wanted to change…

Putting myself out there

So it’s been almost a month. I know, I’m sorry. I wish I had a good excuse but I don’t. I just wasn’t feeling it. I wasn’t inspired. I can’t promise that things will change from here on out but I can try. And that’s what counts. In an effort to make myself believe that when I am doing what I…

Better late than never

I started this post a looooong time ago. Then I got lazy and it got put on the back burner. So let’s pretend that it’s sometime in the beginning of October 2013. Now that we have that all sorted out, enjoy the blog! “It doesn’t get any more awkward than being 26 at a high school film festival”. That’s what…
