Currently growing out my eyebrows because I’ve had the same brow shape since I was 14. Thought I’d share some inspo shots. Can you tell where I’m going with this? Happy Monday!


Lately, I’ve been craving a uniform. Mostly because figuring out what to wear every morning has gotten slightly out of control. I’ve tried to put outfits together the night before and yenno, it’s just not for me. So I thought a uniform would work. I don’t mean wearing the exact same thing every day (shoutContinue reading


So that happened over the weekend. It wasn’t without lots of swearing, splinters and a lot of “wow, they don’t fit. unscrew it!” — but we got ‘er done. I’ll be back with a bigger update (including those two sexy chairs in the back) once she’s sanded, stained and pillowed up.


Update: I’ve made modifications to my eating habits and am using NTC as a proper warmup for running. 15 minutes of almost any workout from the app and I can last a lot longer on the treadmill. Small victories, y’all! So it’s only February and I’m trying to party outside? Well, I do live inContinue reading

Update: My fiancé and I spoke at length after my last post and while I won’t get into specifics… I will say that he’s amazing. We’re moving forward, we’re growing. I may be taking the growing part a little too literal. Over a year ago, I wrote about wanting to change my body. For good.Continue reading

m4s0n501 That’s how I’m feeling.  I’m not sure if anyone still reads this, I’m too lazy to check stats. But if you happen upon this… can we talk? And by ‘we’ I mean ‘I.’ 2013 was eventful, for lack of a better word. I lost my mom. Got engaged. Turned thirty. All in one year.Continue reading


Taking a mental (and physical?) break from our little yard makeover. Plans are being made, things are getting purchased. Excitement. I’m also excited about Summer ending. Whaaaaaat? I know but it hasn’t been a great Summer for me and uh, Fall/Winter attire is probably my favorite. It took a long time to realize that. WhenContinue reading


So, something amazing happened when I was working on the last post. But first, let’s rewind. I used to be subscribed to Design Public’s newsletter and let me tell you, it was pure torture so I unsubscribed. Torture because I basically wanted everything and couldn’t afford it. One of my biggest wants from them isContinue reading

Our backyard (and frontyard) is in a state of disarray. Remember this? 3 years ago? Yea, well it’s worse. Nothing is overgrown, its just dead now. Horribly dead. Those pictures actually make the yard look gorgeous looking back at them. We tell ourselves we don’t water in order to keep our bills low, but I’mContinue reading

I almost didn’t address this here. I’m still debating it as I type. But a part of me feels like it’s wrong not to. On July 21st, my mom passed away. ^And that was incredibly hard to type. I won’t go into what I’m feeling or how I’m dealing with it. I’ll handle that privately.Continue reading
