How to Find Your Style

I never had style, especially growing up. I constantly misinterpreted "style" and "fashion" as synonymous but I learned as I grew older that they weren't. A sense of fashion is easy -- anyone can acquire it. All it entails is keeping up with the latest trends and perpetually updating your wardrobe. But style? I'm not sure that can be taught. Style is timeless, seemingly effortless, and much more difficult to upkeep. Style is classic.   What's your style? Do you know? I can detail many of my...

Tips for Taking Care of Your Tech

Technology — it's undeniably a huge part of our lives whether your device of choice is a phone, tablet, computer, laptop, something else, or a combo. But do you know how to really take care of your technology so that it endures its longest shelf-life possible?   Taking care of our technology, in the same way that we take care of our skin, our hair, and practice self-care, is important to maintaining it.

Secrets to Clear Skin: My Skincare Routine

What's the secret to clear skin? I've had many a skincare routine throughout the years and I learned very quickly that the key to clear skin is a catered-to-you kind of approach.   In other words, there's no catch-all.

Now that I'm in my mid-20s, my skin ventures more on the combination side of the skincare spectrum.   When I was a teenager,...

My Latest Style Obsession: Backpacks

I'm late to the game. Like soooooo late to the game; but please take me seriously when I say that I bought a backpack from Marshall's and now my life is forever changed.   The backpack is the key to #ThatFreelancerLife, I've decided. It all started when I decided I wanted to delve deeper into my vegetarian/vegan-esque lifestyle and phase out the leather in my life. For the past two years, been relying on a Madewell brown leather tote bag (and matching wallet) to tote — ahaha, it all...

How to Style a Guest Room

Styling the perfect guest room is an art. It takes a special hand to create a space that lends itself to your guests, both creatively and physically.   I still remember the first guest room I stayed in that was impactful; it was my first solo trip down to Florida and I spent the week with my great aunt and uncle in Fort Lauderdale. I was 17 years old, had just traveled unchaperoned for the first time ever, and was greeted by the cutest little purple guest...
