I started this blog when I was young. Fresh off my first time living away from home (a semester in Los Angeles), I had a newfound sense of belonging. Not to a place, but rather to an idea. With a broadened worldview, I had a stockpile of photos and stories I needed a place to release. 

As the years have gone by, I've learned a lot. Discovered what works and what doesn't, what people care about and things that people really couldn't care less. I've become known as the girl who will try anything - and it's true! I've found my niche in testing out the latest fads/products/trends so you don't have to! And it's my promise to give my honest review of them all. 

My goal has always been to encourage everyone - no matter where you live, what your job is, who you're friends with, how much money is in your pocket - to get excited about new experiences and opportunities. In doing so, this blog community has really grown into a space I'm proud of, a space where anyone can feel free to pitch ideas and get honest, truthful feedback. It's also a space I use to capture the significant moments of my twenties. Sometimes I get personal, and that's something I'll never shy away from. 


If the era of millennials means one thing, it’s multitasking. So while I’m working zealously to create content for you, know my life is as full as yours, with a full-time job, freelance gigs and believe it or a not, a social life that I like to keep pretty full. When I’m not blogging you’ll find me chasing beautiful sunsets, sipping a cup of coffee on the beach, traveling the globe, perfecting my camera skills, at a spin class or curled up with a good book and a glass of wine. So bear with me if my posts come in spurts.


Whether you're looking for recipes, DIY projects, travel recommendations, foodie finds or new products to upgrade your life, chances are you'll find it here. If I haven't covered it yet - shoot me a DM! I'm happy to be your guinea pig. 

I want to leave you with a little inspiration. If there’s one quote that’s led me through these past few years, it’s the following:

“Be fearless in pursuit of what sets your soul on fire”

If there’s something you can’t stop thinking about or a dream you can’t stop chasing, but have been told it’s not ‘realistic’ by societies standards, go out and get it. Work hard, use criticism as motivation, and if you follow your passion, you can never fail. xo
