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 bought my first french press and it’s life-changing. I love having a reason to invest in myself in the morning. I’m always open to suggestions and recommendations – what’s your favorite coffee?

A few weeks ago, the PR team behind California Pizza Kitchen emailed me asking if I would be interested in trying items from their new fall menu. To say I’m excited to partner with them for this post is an understatement. First things first, I define the word “foodie”. I recently just started to get really into cooking, which is a huge deal. I used to be the pickiest eater ever, but now I’ll try just about anything and everything. Mention “pizza” and I might as well just drop everything for a slice of the good stuff.… View Post
You know what they say: a healthy body is the foundation for a healthy mind. About a year ago, I finally decided to take a few extra steps and start working on my fitness. (*starts singing Fergalicious*) The benefits have been through the roof all around, but it’s remarkable how much of a difference you can make just by taking an hour out of your day.
