I’ve been pretty busy lately. Mostly juggling the business side of things with creative work. I’ve had a lot of photoshoots and have been learning a lot. I decided to host a pop-up shoot at a local park and charged $30 for a 15 minute shoot with people and their dogs! I used all of […]

I get a lot of emails asking me two questions: “What advice do you have for someone in college (studying design)?” and “What would you have done differently in college now that you know what you know?” For awhile I would come up with some pretty solid responses. I would tell people how I

I always love seeing what’s in other bloggers’ makeup bags so I thought I’d share what’s in mine! I did a post like this about a year ago and it’s funny to see how much has changed. I do buy a lot of makeup and test things out but tend to stick with these products […]

This post is one of the first posts (in almost 5 years of blogging) where I feel like I’m catching up with an old friend. I sat down to blog yesterday and realized there were things that I wanted to share. Nothing important, really. But I stayed off Twitter and even Instagram most of the […]

It’s my sweetheart’s 28th birthday today! I love birthdays (other peoples’, my own, my enemies’) and have always made a huge deal out of them. I pride myself in topping myself each year for Adam’s and this year is no exception. I actually have the ULTIMATE birthday planned for him

Owning your own business is fun! I get to work in my pajamas if I want, I can take a vacation whenever I can afford it and I can take on the clients that fit well with my personality. Those are often things that don’t happen at an office job. But with an office job […]

This post is sort of a preface to the one scheduled for tomorrow. Tomorrow I’ll be talking about finding clients as an entrepreneur. I’ve learned a lot about the subject over the last few years but especially so within the past couple months. But I took a break while writing that post to think throu

Happy Friday the 13th! I’m not superstitious¬†but I like saying it to people in hopes that they kind of freak out. Anyways, I think we all loved the last “Let’s Get Coffee” post so I’m going to bring it back every month! This month I’m asking 5 new questions. Answer below in

Last week when I asked my readers what they’d like me to write about, I got a few requests about my skincare routine. I’m sure no one thinks their skincare routine is that glamourous. It tends to happen right before we go to sleep (exhausted) or rushing around before we get ready in the morning. [&h

After polling all of you guys in my survey last week, I found that many of you want insight into being self-employed and how I handle certain aspects! It’s definitely something that I’ve been wanting to do and so I’m glad you all want to see it as well! The first post will be all […]

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become more aware of the seasons in our lives. Sometimes it’s centered around a job, or it’s seasons literally changing. It can even be the rise or dissipation of certain relationships. As we move into September and fall I’m realizing that I’m ready

Over the past year, I’ve really simplified my wardrobe. This summer I found myself wearing the same few pieces over and over. 80% of those items are from Everlane. I’m hooked and I don’t see myself parting ways anytime soon! Before purchasing one of their silk blouses, I scoured the internet f

I’ll be in Indianapolis all day tomorrow! If you’re in the area, we could potentially hang out in various ways: Come hear me speak at The Bindery (Harrison Center for the Arts) during your lunch break. I’ll be chatting about blogging for profit AND fun with my gal Erika. Register here. We coul
