Psychologists say that if a friendship lasts longer than 7 years it will last for a lifetime and I especially believe that if those years are in your 20’s. Priorities, personalities, and lifestyles all change so much in these years and it can be tough to navigate all of those changes and stay close. That’s […]

Guys! I’m finally doing it! I’ve been talking about running a marathon for years and I’m equal parts excited, terrified, and somehow already exhausted. This is a huge step for me on my running journey and I can’t wait to share all the ups and downs (oh so many downs lol) of my marathon training […]

I can’t believe that summer is almost half over already! It honestly feels like it just started getting hot (probably because it was still 55 in June tbf). BUT just because August is on the horizon doesn’t mean there aren’t still a million fun things to do in Madison. That’s actually what I love so […]

Last night, my friend Sarah and I met up at Hilldale Mall to check out their Sidewalk Sale! I love a good bargain and a lot of my favorite stores were participating, so I was excited to scope it out. We had so much fun stopping by my go-to spots at Hilldale and I’m here […]

This season’s Bachelorette, Hannah B., has surprised us in a lot of ways: she’s gotten way better at toasts, she’s stopped saying Roll Tide every 12 seconds, and she’s actually revealed herself to be more of a feminist than I think any of us originally thought. But the surprise my friends and I can’t stop […]

As much as this trip was about celebrate Megan and her amazing accomplishments (I keep telling her she’ll be the mayor of Chicago some day lol) a lot of this trip for me was also dedicated to reclaiming Dublin and reframing my relationship with the city. When I originally moved here, I was dating someone […]

If you’re in the Madison area you know it’s been a long, cold Spring. I think yesterday it finally got over 80 for the first time! I’m a hot weather lover, so it’s been tough dealing with weeks of rainy and chilly days. Despite the dismal weather, though, I’ve tried to keep things Springy in […]

I love this dress. This dress brings me joy. It makes me feel powerful and fun and like I stepped out of the 80s. It’s a vintage, double-breasted suit dress from Rethreads on State Street in Madison. The vintage there can be kind of hit or miss, so I was super pleasantly surprised to find […]

Buckle up, y’all. This one’s a bumpy ride. For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may already know that I got off birth control for the first time in almost 7 years in early February. I’ve read studies and listened to testimonials from other women that felt profound emotional differences after getting […]

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I’ve been dealing with some mental health stuff lately (I’m gonna share more a little while), so instead of dwelling on how awful all that shit’s been I wanted to share some fun, wonderful things that I’ve been up to. I was listening to […]
