When I started this blog a while back, I honestly had no plan for it; I just wanted to create a place where I could write whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. After starting at BuzzFeed, I realized that I didn't have the creative juices to write during the day, come home, and then put effort into this. 

WHICH MADE ME SAD!!! Because I love this blog. So, I have decided to merge both of my worlds together and make THIS...

I am sure if you follow me on social media then you know I've been bombarding everyone (sorry not sorry!) with pictures of my recent trip to Jordan. There really aren't words to describe what a dream the whole thing was. 

We went for Riley's brother's wedding. His wife is from Amman, Jordan so the entire family flew out to be there for the big celebration. I don't know what I did to deserve a trip of a lifetime, but his parents...

Happy maybe spring! 

A while back I completed my first ever successful DIY project: hanging shelves in my living room! *Takes a bow.* The walls seemed so empty and I had wanted shelves for a while, but everything I found on the interwebs was stupid expensive. I needed five to six of them, and there was no way I was paying $40 a pop for each one. 

Hmm. Could I actually just buy wood from the home improvement store and do thi...

The last time I wrote a lil' somethin' for this blog, it was hot, humid, and I was just getting acquainted with my apartment. Now it's winter and Riley and I are on YEAR TWO of living in Brooklyn Heights, and I have bought so much stuff from Target it's shameful. We recently renewed our lease because we love it here, but also because it would be a pain in the rear end to move all of the $h*t I have collected down six flights o...

Well, it only took a casual seven months to get my apartment together, but alas! It finally feels like home! Every paycheck I'd buy something for the living room. When we first moved in back in February, we had ZERO furniture for the living room. All I had when I came to NYC was a bed, dresser, and a couple nightstands.. 

So the first thing I did was order a couch — which took a month to get here so we sat on an air mattre...

Big big news, everybody! I've accepted a job as lifestyle writer at BuzzFeed!!! Woo, celebratin' with that ice cream and wiiiiiine. 

It's a real big girl job, benefits and all. There really isn't enough I can say to stress what a big deal this is to me. I have vivid memories of sitting in college, scrolling through BuzzFeed during all of my lectures, trying to figure out how to score a job there post graduation. And here we are...

I am all moved in!!!

But here’s the kicker, moving actually sucks. I had a magical vision that I would move into my new palace and everything would be magazine-perfect—or at least take me three days max to get there. 

Uh, false. There is nothin’ glamorous about my apartment right now. It’s almost been two weeks since move in, and there are still boxes everywhere. I also have yet to finish purchasing most of my essential furnitur...
