50 Piece Winter Wardrobe

Last January, I put together my first 50 Piece Wardrobe. It went really well and I have really missed the simplicity of it. I just rearranged all my clothing, and I’m ready for another capsule wardrobe! This time, I’m going to increase from 30 days to 50 days. I will wear the clothing I select through February (unless something goes terrible wrong or right with … Continue reading 50 Piece Winter Wardrobe

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)

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!

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

This Post Contains Photos of Me in a Cat Sweater

It’s that time of year again. Christmas music, sales beginning at 3am, cookie swaps, Secret Santas, elves on shelves, and incredible cat sweaters. People are so happy during the winter holiday season that I almost find it difficult to be critical. Don’t worry. I said “almost.” I can absolutely still be a little critical of the wastefulness that comes with this time of year. Between gift giving, traveling, … Continue reading This Post Contains Photos of Me in a Cat Sweater

Life without a Little Black Dress

It’s been two and a half months since the start of my efforts to reduce all the stuff in my life. I’m happy to report that I have not regressed back to my old hoarding ways. I have even been recycling old pickle and peanut butter jars instead of washing them out to use as tupperware. It makes my soul hurt a little every time I … Continue reading Life without a Little Black Dress

Minimal-ish Packing: 5 Days, 2 Cities

    Six weeks ago, I won two free badges to SXSW Eco, an amazing conference that I feel so lucky to attend. I won the badges through an Instagram competition where I shared some photos from my summer experience in New England. I’m about to leave for Atlanta to spend some time with my folks and then I’m off to Austin, TX for the conference. This trip … Continue reading Minimal-ish Packing: 5 Days, 2 Cities
