Hey guys! I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about my Instagram photos, and how I take them (i.e. what kind of camera I use, etc.). I’m going to let you in on a little secret . . . I don’t actually own a camera. All my photos are taken with my iPhone 6s, … Continue reading My 10 Favorite Apps for Awesome iPhone Photos & Videos
I think that at some point while growing up, lots of little girls want to become ballerinas. Perhaps this is why ballet is often romanticized; it is all too easy to think about the sparkly Sugarplum Fairy, the floaty Giselle tutus, and the iconic pink satin pointe shoes, and forget that ballet is often mentally, … Continue reading 7 Life Lessons I Learned From Ballet
As I've mentioned before, I'm a self-proclaimed foodie. I also, unfortunately, have a gluten intolerance. I know that phrase elicits automatic eye-rolls from people, but I don't really care because so many of the issues that plagued me for years - anemia, migraines, fatigue, breakouts, and constant stomach problems, some of which even hospitalized me … Continue reading Gluten-Free Baltimore: my favorite GF-friendly eats in Charm City
Lately, I have felt like Sisyphus. For all of you who weren't nerdy enough to take Mythology as your high school elective, Sisyphus is a character in Greek mythology who was doomed to roll a boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, and to repeat this pointless effort for all of eternity. … Continue reading For All The Times You Feel Like Quitting
In my past two posts, I've been blogging about my recent trip to California. Part One covered Napa, San Fran, and the surrounding area, and Part Two was all about Yosemite. For my third and final post, I wanted to cover the last leg of my trip: Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea, and San Jose. . .
I've been so busy lately that until this past week, it had been a full month since I'd last blogged. I've also been neglecting lots of other things: my workout routine (though I got sidelined for two weeks with an ankle injury, so I'm blaming that), my reading list (no matter how much I read, … Continue reading When You’re “The Busy Friend”
Hopefully you read my Part One post that kicked off this blog series about spending a week in California, but if you're new here, Part Two is all about my adventures in Yosemite National Park . . .
I'll be the first to admit that I'm an East Coast kinda girl. I cherish all four seasons (sometimes I experience them all in one week, since I'm a Marylander), I love being able to be in NYC in four hours or Charleston in eight, and I roll my eyes at every Californian who tries to convince me that Dungeness crabs can ever compare to blue.
Lately I've gotten to travel a lot, and I'll be the first to admit how fortunate I am to have had these experiences. (I'll also be the first to tell you that traveling can be affordable if you're willing to do some planning). I've spent more weekends out-of-state than I have at home this past … Continue reading 7 Life Lessons I forget until I travel
Lately, I've spent a lot of time unpacking and repacking. Whether it's been personal or professional, I've had several out-of-state adventures, and they don't appear to be slowing down anytime soon. Over the years I've refined the practice of packing, and I've learned that (for the most part) no matter the occasion, destination, or length … Continue reading 10 Things I Never Travel Without
