Life Updates (Spoiler: I’m Dr. Diener!)

Oh hello, Internet. Apparently my MO is to do a cool, sassy update and then re-abandon my blog. Rest assured: I abandoned for a good reason–well, multiple good reasons! In my post from February 2017, I provided a pretty length update about what I’d been up to during an accidental year-long hiatus from blog writing. I shared some photos of my apartment, wrote about trying … Continue reading Life Updates (Spoiler: I’m Dr. Diener!)

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

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

Product Review: Fat and the Moon Deodorant Cream

I am always trying to reduce the amount of chemicals I put on and in my body. I have tried the baking soda and vinegar shampoo method, paraben free products, homemade chapstick, etc. Nothing really holds my attention long, but it’s normally because when it’s time to buy more shampoo I’ve already forgotten what product I used by the time I get from my apartment … Continue reading Product Review: Fat and the Moon Deodorant Cream

Saying goodbye to dorm life (& poster mounts)

I’m about seven months away from finally making the big move off campus. That’s right. I still live on campus. It’s been eight wonderful years, but it’s definitely time to move on from dorm living. My job has always provided me with a place to live. I have never had a say in where that place is, how many square feet it is, or what amenities … Continue reading Saying goodbye to dorm life (& poster mounts)

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

SXSW Eco | Austin, TX (Trigger warning: this post is mostly about food)

    After my initial feelings of being eco-verwhelmed with the incredible presentations and conversations I was lucky enough to be a part of at SXSW Eco, I calmed down to be able to simply enjoy my experience and soak in as much as possible. This trip was chock full of lessons in sustainability, little green nuggets that I immediately stored in my mushy brain … Continue reading SXSW Eco | Austin, TX (Trigger warning: this post is mostly about food)
