Liberty Market downtown Gilbert

Spring Break Gram and Gramp Style

Two 21 year olds dog sitting, watch CNN for hours on end and taking little lunch trips to downtown Gilbert’s Liberty Market is probably not the most common way to spend spring break. I know personally I picture beach trips and partying… And that’s fun and all, no denying that. Yet given the choice between that and my past week with Spencer – I wouldn’t … Continue reading Spring Break Gram and Gramp Style

Young Love Isn’t A Lesser Love

Young love always left a bad taste in my mouth. My parents had me at 18 and 19 and separated a few months after, so I can’t remember when my mom and dad lived under one roof. For awhile I was very resentful about this, and my “takeaway” lesson therefore was to find the perfect Prince and never let him go. When I attended elementary school, my best friend’s mom … Continue reading Young Love Isn’t A Lesser Love

Setting Up An Apartment-Sized Office

This semester I’m taking online classes, starting my thesis and receiving credit for an editorial internship at Arizona Foothills Magazine. I’m not much of an online class person, but it’s just how it worked out this semester. My biggest fear was my ability to focus, considering Spencer and I share a room.I’m also the type of person who needs the right atmosphere to get things … Continue reading Setting Up An Apartment-Sized Office

I’m printed at Arizona Foothills, but my first piece for them comes … Continue reading Striped Trousers for an Office Casual Look

Dressing Before the Heat Strikes

Yesterday, Arizona broke a record. Earliest 90º temp EVER! Needless to say, I’m not thrilled about it. I do miss the warmth, but I’d be happy with a few more months of 70s. I figured – I simply cannot wait. I’ve gotta post this outfit before it’s too late! Check it out and let me know your thoughts. Shop this look: Zara Top (similar, similar) … Continue reading Dressing Before the Heat Strikes

How To Wear OTK Boots with a Victorian-Style Blouse

If you read my post on tips for shopping at Forever 21, you know I had over-the-knee boots on my wish list for the holidays. Thanks to Black Friday and getting really lucky, I was able to find them! (Click here for a similar pair I originally wanted!) This season I’m really into the Victorian-style blouses, probably because of the H&M and Balmain Collaboration. I love how … Continue reading How To Wear OTK Boots with a Victorian-Style Blouse

The Perfect Red Heels for the Holidays

This may be absolutely awful to admit, but I totally go black Friday shopping for myself. I like to shop for the clothing deals, and as much as I’d like to buy clothes for friends and family, it stresses me out! I don’t know their sizes, I don’t know their style… It’s just too much. So this past year, I just went for myself. I … Continue reading The Perfect Red Heels for the Holidays
