A Behind the Scenes Look: Marketing

I thought today that I might give you a behind the scenes look at how I craft my brand. First, let me say that marketing is something I’ve loved for a long time. I spent three years in high school studying marketing in a program called DECA . I never reached my potential because I was lazy and complacent. Otherwise, I loved the subject and … Continue reading A Behind the Scenes Look: Marketing

The Junk Drawers Are Alive

My junk drawers are alive. They must be. There’s no other explanation for the number of junk drawers in my house save that they’re copulating in the night and increasing in number. I certainly had no direct control over the situation, I mean, I didn’t set out to live in a home with, let’s just say, a lot of junk drawers.

Women and Beauty: Part One

Women and Beauty: Part One Did you know that I’m a cartographer now? Oh yeah, I’ve been studying and mapping the lines on my face. My laugh lines and future crows feet are worrying me.

A Girl and a Raccoon Meet In the Woods

I planned on going for a long, intense walk and then sitting down to write. The writing came sooner than expected. I was walking along a somewhat beaten path when I looked over and saw a patch of earth covered over in fallen leaves, above it a canopy of trees.

Outfit Post: White Corduroys & Tee

It ain’t often that you’ll find me wearing white pants. Most of the white pants I’ve tried on throughout my life have been completely see-through. Is it just me, or is there a shortage of non-see-through white pants out there? Thankfully, these cozy, stretchy Old Navy corduroy pants don’t have that problem. I love a good pair of blue jeans, but I think it’s nice … Continue reading Outfit Post: White Corduroys & Tee
