Weekend Update

A slightly shorter post this week after having a crazy busy schedule the last few days including the start of a new semester of grad school. I’m spending the day today skiing at Blue Mountain, which will provide a much needed break from the rest of my obligations. In other news, I booked flights to SCOTLAND this week. Commence crazy google doc trip planning. Please send any and…

‘Kitchen Sink’ Vegetable Soup Recipe

Last week, I found myself really craving a nice, warm soup after all the snow. I also had a ton of produce in my refrigerator that I knew I needed to use quickly. Knowing I needed to cook more to fulfill my New Month Resolution for January, I decided to throw together a soup that ended up being so delicious, I just had to share this vegetable soup…

New Month Resolutions

I have never been a big New Year’s Resolutions person. It has always seemed to me like a very artificial and forced thing that everyone starts but no one finishes. I decided this year that instead of forcing myself into resolutions I knew I wouldn’t keep anyway, I should try something new. That’s where New Month Resolutions come in. What are New Month Resolutions? Every month, I will set a…

Weekend Update

Happy first weekend of 2018! Is it just me or has it been especially hard to get back in the swing of things this week? Maybe it’s because I didn’t come back to work until the 3rd or maybe it’s the snow, but I still don’t feel adjusted post-holidays. I’ve been spending lots of time this week getting my apartment back in order – cleaning and taking down…

Book Reviews Fall/Winter 2017

I was not great about reading in the latter half of 2017. I got really caught up in work, school, and life in general and really fell behind on my reading goals. Nonetheless, I was able to squeeze in some good books that I want to share in a book reviews post before I forget and get too sucked into 2018 reading lists! Fates & Furies: A Novel…

Brooklyn Weekend Recap

Two weeks ago, I was up in Brooklyn for a weekend with my boyfriend for an LCD Soundsystem concert at Brooklyn Steel. The show was absolutely incredible – like no exaggeration, maybe the best show I’ve ever been to – but we also did a ton of other fun things that I thought were worth sharing. The show was Sunday night, so our weekend was shifted by a…

Gift Guide: Last Minute Gifts

It’s about this point every year – less than a week before Christmas – when I find myself scrambling for last minute gifts. Of course, as I was scouring Amazon for my own Christmas shopping purposes, I came across a lot of fun options for last minute gifts to share. I wouldn’t always think to look to Amazon first for many of these items, but these are all…

How to Frame Art Inexpensively

Society6 Emroidered Mt. Rushmore Print // Society6 Pink Eruption Print // Society6 One Line Nude Print // IKEA Ribba Frame I love the look of nice, clean, framed prints on my walls but I hate paying lots of money for something I could probably do myself. Framing art is one of those things. Of course if I had a really nice, expensive piece I would probably go to a…

Weekend Update

It’s been a busy busy week, so here is a belated weekend update! This week was insane both with work and school – although I’m finally getting really close to my holiday break. I just have ONE MORE thing to turn in before finishing grad school and I can finally see the light. Right now, I’m in Brooklyn spending the day exploring before tonight’s LCD Soundsystem concert at…
