Feminist Fridays: Michelle Obama on the Importance of Friendships

Feminist Fridays are back! I’ve missed this feature; writing these posts is like a little breath of fresh air each week, giving myself space to vent about some problematic sexist $#!t or highlight amazing people who are empowering, inspirational, and strive for equality. I’d like to kick this feature off after an absence of many… Continue reading Feminist Fridays: Michelle Obama on the Importance of Friendships

WHEN THE CURTAIN FALLS by Carrie Hope Fletcher | Review

Welcome to my first book review in MONTHS. I've decided to switch up the way I write my reviews, to let me know if you like this new format!  In 1952 two young lovers meet, in secret, at the beautiful Southern C ross theatre in the very heart of London's West End. Their relationship is… Continue reading WHEN THE CURTAIN FALLS by Carrie Hope Fletcher | Review

APRIL 2018 | Wrap-Up

T.S. Eliot famously wrote in The Waste Land that "April is the cruelest month." Fortunately, this particular month of April has been remarkably kind to me! Between traveling, spending time with friends, starting a new term, and planning for some exciting days to come, this past month was filled with moments that I know I won't soon… Continue reading APRIL 2018 | Wrap-Up

Today I'd like to talk about one my favorite people to watch on Youtube: singer, actress, blogger, and vlogger Carrie Hope Fletcher. I've been a fan of her videos for years (since I was in middle school?!) and it's been amazing to watch her grow and develop her channel over such a long time. I want to… Continue reading Feminist Fridays: Carrie Hope Fletcher

Every season I set a TBR list and then completely forget about it by the time I have to create another one for the next season... when will this vicious cycle end? (Not anytime soon!)

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag | 2017

Can you believe that 2017 is already half way over??? I'm still not used to how far along we are in the twenty-first century. Every time someone mentions the 90s my first thought is "Ah, yes, that decade ten years ago." But that is NOT THE CASE and it's kind of scary... Anyways, thanks so… Continue reading Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag | 2017

ON THE OTHER SIDE by Carrie Hope Fletcher | Review

I've been a fan of Carrie Hope Fletcher's Youtube channel since middle school, back in the days of wearing crocs and starting stories I would never finish writing and pretending that I could run fast enough to be on the cross-country team (fun fact: I could not). Not only have we both grown older since… Continue reading ON THE OTHER SIDE by Carrie Hope Fletcher | Review

Monthly Wrap-Up

APRIL 2017 | Wrap-Up

April is one of those months where you never really know quite what to expect. This is especially true in New England, when the weather can be freezing and rainy one day and gloriously sunny the next. Though we definitely had our share of ups and downs weather-wise this month, life has been steadily looking… Continue reading APRIL 2017 | Wrap-Up
