I’m back! And here’s what I’ve been up to…

Why yes, it has been one year since my last blog post. If you’ve followed my blog from the beginning, you know that I’m not the most consistent blogger in the world. I try to put out quality posts (says the girl who once wrote a post called “People with no friends make me sad” and another called “Chicken fried waste“) that truly reflect where … Continue reading I’m back!

Dumb Phone Challenge Recap

I may be a millennial, but I think I’d survive without a smart phone. I spent all of January doing a Dumb Phone Challenge where I only used my phone for calling, texting, and a few other features. It went really well and I can honestly say I learned a lot from it. I don’t know how long it takes to form a habit–some say a … Continue reading Dumb Phone Challenge Recap

Guest Blog: Budgetary Experiment for a Halfway Adult

Hi, readers! First, I want to thank Jane for letting me write a guest post on Sustainable in the South. Some of you might already know this, but in case you don’t, Jane and I have known each other since middle school. I feel privileged to have had her as a friend so long. She is great, and so of course her blog is, too. … Continue reading Guest Blog: Budgetary Experiment for a Halfway Adult

Whoops. Spent all my money on the holidays.

I’m almost done with my Dumb Phone Challenge and I am learning some valuable lessons. I can’t wait to share that in my update about the whole experience. This post is about my next challenge, a new way for me to reduce… my spending, that is. The holiday season is an annual reminder of how frivolous I can be with money. I have a budget … Continue reading Whoops. Spent all my money on the holidays.

Diva Cupdate

Early in my blogging days, I posted about my experience with the Diva Cup. Four years later, my Diva Cup and I are so happy together. I thought I’d provide a Diva Cupdate for those of you who missed my first post and are looking for a way to make the most awkward time of every month a little more green. Let me start by saying this: … Continue reading Diva Cupdate

Dumb Phone Challenge

I have finally come to the conclusion that I rely too heavily on technology, but especially my phone. My iPhone is always within arm’s reach, if not already in my hand. It connects me with everyone I know or have ever met through texts, calls, FaceTime, and social media. It provides me with entertainment when I’m at the airport or when I can’t fall asleep. … Continue reading Dumb Phone Challenge

Purge Party (Not What it Sounds Like.)

Looking for a fun fall activity to do with your friends or family? Well, I’ve got the idea for you! No, I’m not going to describe ideas for a cute, hipster photo shoot among the falling leaves. Nor will I describe the perfect fall crafting project for holiday gifts. Although both of those posts may happen in the near future. I’m talking about a purge party. No, … Continue reading Purge Party (Not What it Sounds Like.)

Minimal-ish Packing: Georgia Girl Hits LA

My bags are packed and I’m ready to go… to LA! I am so excited about this trip. I get to hug and hang out with one of my greatest friends, run my first half marathon, and hopefully soak up some sun before I head back home! I’ll be away for seven days and I don’t know what kind of fun I’ll be getting into, … Continue reading Minimal-ish Packing: Georgia Girl Hits LA

50 Piece Wardrobe Recap

I am proud to say that my one month trial of my 50 piece wardrobe went well! First, let me recount all the times I cheated on those 50 pieces by adding new pieces: January 31: I added a cute necklace and some heels to my Little Black Dress to dress it up for a gala February 15: I added a crochet top to make my Valentine’s … Continue reading 50 Piece Wardrobe Recap

50 Piece Wardrobe

If my life looked anything like my Pinterest Boards, I would be the coolest freaking human alive. I would cook the most epic vegan meals and treats, go on the most kickass vacations, be able to bend into the most insane yoga poses, and put together the most incredible ensembles from my minimalist wardrobe. As it turns out, I am half-assing everything on my Pinterest page. … Continue reading 50 Piece Wardrobe
