Our Relationship Between Memory and Music

There's something special about the relationship between memory and music. We all know it and feel it. That time you drove your crush home from school and The Cranberries CD was playing on the stereo. The road trip playlist you sang at the top of your lungs with your crew. Your first kiss and that 80’s hit that will forever be soaked in...

DIY Paper Marbling

I remember the first time I truly appreciated the beauty of marbled paper – I was in an underground secondhand bookstore, soaked in that intoxicating dust-vanilla-wood smell of old books, and I just happened to come across a set of 18th century encyclopedias. They were bound in old tooled leather, and the edges of the pages were marbled in blue...

DIY Bath Soaks

I'm all about a good, long bath. My bathroom is stocked with the most ridiculous collection of salts, powders, oils, and bath bombs that the world has possibly ever witnessed, and it's the daily activity I most look forward to (maybe besides that first cup of coffee in the morning). I may or may not have a secret Pinterest board dedicated to...

Bullet Journaling

You’ve probably seen them on Instagram or Pinterest - those charming little journals with pretty ‘spreads’, calendars, and lists. Now, if you’re anything like me, your desk might be a flurry of sticky notes and day planners and to do lists, and your Notes app is a mess of movie recommendations, half-formed ideas, and grocery lists....

How to Write a Resume

For many of us, just the thought of resume writing is enough to bring on a headache. The sheer volume of available resources – and their contradictory nature – makes seeking guidance both overwhelming and confusing. Crafting your resume shouldn’t be a chore. Truthfully, it’s a perfect opportunity for self-reflection; a time to...

DIY Room Sprays

My grandmother’s home, filled with plants, smells ferny and jungle-wet and alive. My in-laws’ home smells like laundry and freezer ice. A friend’s apartment always smells like the cedarwood incense she burns. All these scents are unique, distinctive, and deeply connected to who these people are to me. I have zero standout memories of places...

DIY Vintage Mirrors

In my wildest dreams, I live in a gorgeous century-old house, with timeworn wooden floors, antique oil portraits on the wall, and ghosts in the attic. But until my bank account catches up to my dreams of domestic bliss, I'm happy to settle for a few pretty vintage details. I love the stories vintage pieces tell, the sometimes mysterious...

Confidence

 It has taken me months to write these few paragraphs. I have typed and deleted more times than I can count. While the kids are in the bath, while I am stuffing my face with way too many Christmas cookies, while I am listening to podcasts and walking the dog, I have mulled over this topic and what, if anything, I can contribute to it. It has...
