A weird week

It’s been a weird week. I have been in a bit of a funk lately and have been attempting numerous productivity and positivity tips and tricks from Buzzfeed and The Muse. Some have stuck, some I still struggle with, and some I have bailed on. I also found a new podcast and tried something new. Let’s…

Watch the throne

You may or may not know that I have a puppy. 🙂 Her name is Harley Quinn, and she is perfect! I recently sort-of inherited a weird chair from a family friend and couldn’t help but turn it into a puppy throne. Have you ever seen a chair like this? It showed up on my…

Organization station

Not sure if you have picked up on this, but I am pretty obsessive, meticulous, controlling, etc (In other words – A pleasure to be around 🙂 ) – BUT I will be the first to admit that I do not have my crap together. However, I feel like I do have a decent grasp….

Skills to pay the bills

Ironically enough, I started out in design school in college. I lasted one semester and met one of my besties in the process. Mallory and I had 7:30am classes Mon – Fri that first semester of our freshman year. It was rough. While I felt like I was pulling all-nighters with finger paints, Mal was kicking ass…

Routines & caffeine

One of my favorite parts of the morning is my time with Harley Quinn, my pup. She is the most perfect poochie on the planet, and we are completely co-dependent. Every morning, I let her out of her house (i.e. crate in our bedroom); she stretches, hangs out on the bed for a minute, and…

Friendship bracelet headphones

In my quest to accomplish things I have pinned, I busted out my friendship bracelet making skills over the weekend. This was super affordable. I already had the headphones (but they were only $14.99 – which I purchased with Amazon credit card rewards), and I dropped a whopping $1.40 on the embroidery thread. (Props to the…

My Cutesy Christmas Garland

A coworker-friend and I have started a crafty group at work. Our first project: Christmas Garland.  A friend had a fabulous idea of using Christmas lights instead of twine. Here’s the breakdown: Fabric: I got ½ yd of 5 fabrics (all on sale @ Jo-ann Fabric) for a total around $13 (Pro Tip: I also…
