I started my first lookbook as a way to track the trends, colors and textures that caught eye. Four years later, I ended my first lookbook after stretching the binding far beyond its original capacity. Don’t worry, I’ve started a new one, but first I wanted to share some of my favorite pages that I compiled over the years. If you want some ideas on how to start your own lookbook, check out Creating a Lookbook or watch my video on making your own lookbook.

Three years ago, I was at a loss for what to do with my old magazines. I could recycle them, but that would mean I would likely never see certain editorials again.

Yesterday I was scrolling through Reddit when I came across this post in /r/financialindependence. The question posed was: What simple things do you do to save money? Here’s the second highest upvoted response: As someone who sometimes writes about clothing and fashion, I found this to be an interesting observation. I stopped and asked myself, “Do fashion blogs ruin people’s budgets?” I’m actually inclined to agree with this, and I’ll tell you why. For the past few months, I’ve been working retail (I know, oh so glamorous), and I was quite surprised to find how popular fashion blogs are with […]
Earlier this year, The New York Times officially proclaimed that coloring books for adults were a thing. Usually I roll my eyes at trends that seem to be aimed directly at hipsters, but this time I fell for it. I bought my first coloring book ever–The Time Garden by Daria Song. At first I was super into it, but I have to say that my enthusiasm has since worn down. I maybe color once or twice a week. For me coloring is similar to doing puzzles. It’s a time to turn off my brain and focus solely on the seemingly meaningless task at […]
