Yoga is my spirit animal

Fun fact: I found yoga in ‘04, when I was 18 (this was before the internet was hugely popular and everyone knew everything at all times), and have practiced on and off ever since.

My DIY office transformation (+ shopping links)

Since I started my own company 1.5 years ago, I've worked mostly from home. It never felt quite right to sit on the couch with my laptop, and the room where we put a desk was scattered with other random things, so I decided I really needed to put together an office where I love spending working hours.

Workout crop tops: why I wear them and you should too

A few months ago I noticed an interesting thing - only bloggers wear crop tops to work out. If you go to a sponsored blogger workout class, 95%+ of the girls there will be wearing a crop top, but in a normal fitness class, there may be one or two people max. "Normal" people always cover up. Why is that?

Hello 2018

2017 was an epic year. The things that were good were really good, and the things that were bad were pretty darn bad. Some things that happened this year:

My fave Fall OTS top

Life is a whirlwind lately, but in a good way. I started my own business in January and, I don't want to jinx it, but it's finally taking off. Owning your own business means sleepless nights, nonstop work, and constant stress because there's no one but you to do the work to make the business succeed.

Don't be afraid to fail (+ my fave summer OTS top)

The cool thing is, if I've learned anything in life, it's that there's never a reason to give up on your goals. Even if you fail at completing your goals for months, or years, or even decades, you can pick up at any time and JUST. DO. IT. Just do it. It's that easy (Nike got it right). It doesn't have to be perfect. It doesn't have to be anything other than what you can put out there. But just do it. Because what's worse than failing? Never even trying.

I always have a hard time choosing the wallpaper for my phone, but recently it's been easy with all of the spring florals around the city! I'm currently using and loving the black and white poppies, but you know the succulent are next up!

Going full time!

I've always wanted to be a full-time photographer, but it never felt like the right time to make that transition. When I was young, my family wanted me to be some kind (any kind) of doctor, so I went to grad school to get a doctorate degree. I've worked in offices since I was 16, entered tech in my early 20s -- I kept feeling the pressure to get further in my "real" career, to make more money, to be more financially stable and responsible and adult. ...
