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 the place where I share what I am up to at home, *and* at work. I'll round up all the posts I've written, and because of my new(ish) job, it's a lot of product recommendations and places to buy things you don't — I mean, you definitely need! It'll also include my apartment DIYs and decor (which I invest a lot of time and too much money in), and new recipes I'm testing out. Another thing, I have gotten into cooking healthy meals because I hate working out more than anything on this planet, and food seemed like an easier area for me to have control in.
But ok, enough of that boring intro.
Without further ado, here's what I've been up to and some of my favorite things that I have written lately!
I went on a booze cruise that my friend Brett found on Groupon and it was truly one of the greatest things I've done in NYC yet.
I got my first dress hemmed and tailored to perfectly fit me; WHY HAVEN'T I DONE THIS SOONER.
I tested out this zucchini lasagna from Skinny Taste and confirm, it's amazing and easy.
My mom came to visit me and we got matching tattoos! Teeny (what I call my mom) got hers first, and we did it in honor of our rescue pit.
I got a robot vacuum that's truly the coolest thing I own (post to come).
~~Posts I've recently written and love:

You Can Use This All-Purpose Cleanser To Basically Clean Your Entire House
Humans of the world, this cleaner changed my life. This post has some naaaasty but satisfying before-and-after photos of my own apartment, and yes I am slightly embarrassed of the filth. But when your apartment was built 120 years ago, you need all the help you can get.
