6 Feminist Book Club Reads

There's no denying: It's the year of the girl. Women are proud to be women and they're not shutting up about it. Women are marching in the streets, breastfeeding in public, making A LOT of money, and they meet up at The Wing every Wednesday night to plan their inevitable world take-over. Women are also reading a lot of books.   Just as the new wave of feminism is having a moment — though I would argue that women (and feminism by extension) are always having a moment — so are...

Tips for Cover Letter Writing

A cover letter is a company's first insight into who you will be as their potential employee. When you think of it in those terms, it better be good, huh?   There was a time when I hated cover letters. I didn't give them much thought and I specifically thought that my resume would do most of the talking. But accolades and experience aren't necessarily all you need to secure a new job or to impress a potential employer. Your cover letter expresses your personality, as well...

A New Yorker’s Traveling Guide to Waco, Texas

A couple years ago, I had never heard of Waco, Texas but even still then, The Lone Star State was high on my list of traveling priorities. I had heard through the grapevine of my fortunate traveler friends that Austin, TX was not only weird (get it — "Keep Austin Weird" — get it?!) but it was also the place to be. Not to mention, I had a family member move to Temple, TX a few years back, so it just seemed like a matter of time before...

How to Be More Confident

Confidence is a tricky one. I think even when we're not feeling confident, we sometimes try to bolster ourselves, dupe ourselves, and pretend we are. I'm guilty of this, especially during the most formative years, like middle school and high school. I would tromp around, wearing different things, embracing the label "unique," to the point of even writing it on one of my folders. "Unique," I wrote, "being the only one of its kind, unlike anything else." But when it came down to it, my feelings...

What to Know and Expect Before Getting a Pomsky

If you follow me on Instagram, Snapchat, or even Twitter, you'll know that I became a puppy mama in February 2017. After a long decision process and much talk about the kind of dog we wanted, my mom and I finally decided that our family was ready to add another member: a pet. We had talked for several months what it would mean to bring a dog (actually, a puppy!) into our house and how that addition would affect our lifestyle.   Koda was born on November...

Design Tips to Upgrade Your Bathroom

Over the years, I've gone through phases when it comes to bathroom organization. As a 21-year-old living in my first rented apartment, I was convinced the bathroom area was a space that deserved to looked lived-in. There was always a straightener on the sink, a few half-used products laying around.   Now, I like my bathroom the way I like my room: organized. Every thing that lives in my bathroom has a place. Especially when working with a smaller place, organization is key. Keep reading to check...
