ICYMI, my 2018 resolution is to do more things that make me forget to check my phone. My goal is to replace the time wasted scrolling through social media with better-quality content that feeds my soul, ex. books, music, and movies. I detailed my strategies and how it’s going so far in this article I… Continue reading The best things I read/watched/listened to: January 2018
PR girl fueled by pop-punk, witty words and a hot cup of tea.
I love New Year’s Eve. Not for going out (always overrated, in my opinion), but because of the fresh start it promises. I enjoy looking back on my year, seeing what I accomplished, and setting new goals for myself. It’s a good way to ensure that you never stop growing. Because if you’re not growing,… Continue reading 2018 Resolutions

Happy Halloween from The Ryans
Growing up, Halloween was my absolute favorite holiday. Partially because my parents always went all out with decorations, pumpkin carving, and costumes, and partially because there’s nothing more fun than dressing up and getting free candy! There was a short window of time between college and moving to Troy when I opted out of Halloween… Continue reading Happy Halloween from The Ryans

I’m not sure what made me think of them recently, but I… Continue reading 25 things you may not know about me
Vegetarian Recipes for Newbies
MPR and I have been on quite the food journey this year. We started out by cutting all processed foods and carbs. Then I dabbled in paleo and used the spiralizer to turn veggies into noodles. Then we fell into a Netflix food documentary hole and discovered the benefits of a plant-based diet. We started… Continue reading Vegetarian Recipes for Newbies
Home Tour: Guest Room
Strangely, the first room we finished in our new house was the guest room. Mostly because we didn’t need to buy anything new to furnish it, but also because we slept there the first week while we waited for our new mattress to be delivered. To be honest, I just can’t sleep on an air… Continue reading Home Tour: Guest Room
A moving announcement & moving announcements
Well, it finally happened. I left the city for a 3-bedroom in the suburbs. And I don’t hate it. In fact, I kind of love it. Our neighborhood has winding tree-lined sidewalks where I can walk Rufio (and I don’t need to worry about him hurting his little feet on broken beer bottles like when… Continue reading A moving announcement & moving announcements
I tossed 496 things in 1 month. Here’s how.
Ever since I was a kid I felt overwhelmed by my own clutter. I held onto everything at risk of needing it again. But at 28 years old, I watched Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things and something finally clicked. It kind of gave me permission to let go of the things I didn’t… Continue reading I tossed 496 things in 1 month. Here’s how.
