August Favorites

August is the best month of the year, not only because it’s my birthday month, but because it’s when I’ve been the most active on my newly revamped blog. I put together a few of my most obsessed products of the month. Take a look!

A Week in the Life of a Puppy Sitter


One of my friends got a pitbull/lab mix puppy named Emmy last weekend and I fell in love with pibbles all over again. I have two adult pitbulls and babysitting a puppy for a week taught me a lot about the experience of raising a puppy, as well as the tendencies of my own dogs.

This by no means is a post complaining about taking care of a puppy. It’s just a few things I’ve experienced during the week and learned about the way I react to a situation like this.

Nexplanon One Month Review

Nexplanon implant under skin

PSA: Planned Parenthood is 100% necessary and I am grateful for the people that dedicate their lives to fighting for it, and for everyone who works at every location around the country. Here’s how to get involved if you feel the same or want to learn more.

Alarm goes off, roll out of bed, make some coffee, look in the mirror and realize you’ve got a lot to do. First things first, where’s my birth control? You’re two pills behind… again.

Blame It On My Unstraight Line

I realized a few weeks ago that one of the most satisfying things that I can do is to create. I drew up a design and wrote out a new 15-foot menu board for my boyfriend’s sandwich shop and even though I wanted to cry when I finished at 2 in the morning, the next time I walked into The Shop I felt satisfied. I felt proud and accomplished and realized I need to work on bringing that feeling into my life more.

I started drawing a couple days after that. Let me tell you, it ain’t easy. It’s easy to look at a picture and see the lines and know you have the ability to do that, it gets hard when you put your pencil to paper and realize you can’t even draw a straight line never mind try and draw someone’s face. Here are a few things I’ve learned over the last couple weeks:

Falsies for the not so fabulous

Every one wants beautiful, luscious everything. Women get $800 hair extensions to make themselves feel more beautiful (not for your guys, sorry to break it to ya,) and I, being the broke post-gradder that I am, get free eyelash extensions. Yes, free. I willingly glued synthetic falsies to my eyes, but for a good cause. Laziness was my main cause, friendship and education was also my cause, and this blog was my cause. I needed more material so I thought let’s glue some stuff to my face.

8 Things My Hippie Mom Taught Me

The first image that comes to mind when I think of my mom is walking into the kitchen with James Taylor turning on the record player … but I always thought that I’d see you again, one more time again… the sun is streaming through the windows glowing on her. She’s in overalls and a DIY tank top; her golden blonde hair is messily thrown up in a clip with strands falling out the sides and bottom of her neck. She’s one of the most free people I’ve ever met in my life and the way she lived has taught me much about myself.
