Did you know that cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women? I had absolutely no idea. I’ve never seen a woman have a heart attack in a movie. I was never taught about heart disease in health class. I’ve never really even thought about my heart health as a twenty-something woman. So, I […]

Last weekend, I got to tick another item off my Madison bucket list – go to Frostiball! Frostiball is an annual fundraiser and gala for the Overture Center here in Madison, which is the largest non-profit arts organization in the city. As a former theater major, I love art and especially live performance and have […]

When I posted on Instagram last month that I was going back to therapy, I was totally blown away by the response – it was my most liked photo almost immediately and y’all shared such honest and insightful comments. So, I wanted to continue the conversation and share a little bit more about my journey […]

Over the last year I’ve unintentionally become obsessed with basket bags. They were super trendy in the summer of 2018 and I thought they were so fun, so I caved and bought my first one vintage on a trip to Philadelphia. Ever since then, though, I’ve started to collect basket bags even though I’m pretty […]

A few weeks ago, I was home in Chicago for my mom’s birthday and was invited to join a fun photoshoot with some bloggers. I love meeting people through Instagram (which sounds weird, but it’s actually how I’ve met so many of my friends in Madison!) so I happily agreed. On a ridiculously cold Saturday […]

After our trip to Vietnam, I got the chance to spend a few days in Singapore, where my friend Anna now lives full-time. I was only there for a few days, but I tried to pack in as much exploring and eating as possible. Here’s what I got up to when I was in town: […]

The last time I checked in on here about my marathon training I was just starting out and so excited about it, but a lot has changed since then! I still love running, I’m excited by the prospect of running a marathon, but unfortunately that won’t be happening this year. I made a promise to […]

Last week I got home from a whirlwind trip to South East Asia with my friend, Anna. We spent 8 days in Vietnam and then headed to Singapore, where Anna lives, for another 4 days. The whole trip was incredible and was totally the change in perspective I’ve needed after a long bought of anxiety […]

Happy Second Hand September! It’s no secret that I’m a big thrifter. I’ve always loved bargain hunting and thrift shopping – there’s just something so satisfying about finding an incredible deal that makes me love my clothes that much more. My love for thrifting started when I lived in Dublin because there were so many […]
