5 Investments Every Post Grad Should Make

It’s been 4 months since May graduation (omg!) and I’m finally starting to get this “adulting thing” under my belt. Just in case you’re also trying to get your act together, I wanted to create a little guide for what I consider the 5 best investments you can make as a recent college grad! (FYI: this can apply to literally anyone) ONE – FURNITURE // If you read my story about how I ended up in Old Town, you’d understand that I pretty much dropped everything at college to take an internship, sans furniture. Sure, I’ve accumulated… View Post

I just wanted to take a minute to fill you all in on what’s new in my life, and some plans for the future.  Sarah, what’s going on? Where have you been?

Christmas Playlist

Christmas time is finally here! (a.k.a. my favorite time of the year). Scientists here at Pittsburgh & Pearls have allegedly compiled the perfect playlist for decking your dorm room, the halls; or just helping you get in the mood to put on your ugly sweater and chug some egg nog! And as Buddy the Elf said…  I’ll be updating the playlist throughout the season, so don’t forget to follow along on Spotify if you have an account! (and if not, I highly suggest getting one!) Happy Listening!
