Interior design is something I have always had interest in. As far as design styles go I like eclectic and airy styles that showcase the individuality of the home and its owners. For inspiration, I often gravitate towards Scandinavian design aesthetics; the feel is inviting, spacious and lived in. I’ve always admired a good shoe…

Oscar Fashion

I have to say this year’s Academy Awards fashion didn’t blow me away. Though I did find a few standouts, the majority of the actresses I usually look to, were halfway there with their looks. A majority of them were wearing ill fitting gowns, the wrong hairstyle, or just the styling in general was off. I know…

Protein Bites

Protein is an essential component to any healthy diet. I have cut my meat consumption drastically in the past couple of months only to realize that shortly after my meals, I am starving. So last week I decided to finally tackle this issue, and come up with a solution. After some research, I decided to make my…

Holiday dress for the office

Now in the month of February, it is socially acceptable to eat chocolate with every meal; and wear pink and red on repeat in preparation for Valentine’s Day. Working in a more formal office, the dress code is often much more strict, so pulling together celebratory holiday garb often takes a lot more thought. Start by anchoring…

Toast

Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day. Unfortunately, during the weekday, there isn’t always time to have a large and leisurely breakfast. I’m always looking for quick and easy recipes packed with flavor and protein to get me going through my day. Lately, I’ve been on a bit of a toast kick; constantly trying…

I made this 5-minute brownie in a mug and it is to die for. Great for any celebratory moment to treat yourself! Smoked salmon egg stuffed avocado is on the menu for this weekend. I’m hoping for another rainy weekend to stay in and watch food documentaries; I found a really great list. Don’t forget…

We need to talk about Chanel.

In my world Karl Lagerfeld can do no wrong. His designs for Chanel are always tailored beautifully, full of texture and uphold the infamous features of the original Coco Chanel designs. His most recent collection, Spring 2016 Haute Couture, was one of my favorites. I thought the sleeves were amazing and the fabrics expertly chosen. The…

Chocolate.

Let’s talk chocolate shall we? Valentine’s Day will be here sooner than you know it, so it’s time to start taste testing homemade chocolates. Ever since the New Year I’ve been trying to eat healthier, like most us, but thinking about getting through Valentine’s Day sans chocolate just sounds awful. Though I do believe in…

Film Review: Good Will Hunting (1997)

One of my New Year’s Resolution this year was to take the time to see those classic, must-see films that I have been putting off for years. As a film major, there is nothing I love more than a 1940s black and white film told through a sweeping score, and over-the-top dramatic acting. So, I compiled a list…

5 Tips to Make Moving to a New Place a Little Easier

Three months ago I made the decision to move to Seattle. I will admit, it was on a whim. I had a job, which I quit; I didn’t have a car, so I bought one; and I skipped town. I drove out in three days and hit the ground running. To say I learned a…
