    Magnolia Plantation

    Bucket list item #976 – Magnolia Plantation Charleston, South Carolina, USA I remember when I was working on an itinerary for our anniversary last year, I told Dave one day we were slated to spend the entire day at Magnolia Plantation. He looked at me like I was a crazy person. “We’re spending all day at a plantation. What on earth would we do at a plantation all day?” To which I replied, “Everything, Dave. Everything.” When I say everything, I sincerely feel like I’m not exaggerating. Magnolia Plantation & Gardens seemingly has it all. There’s the plantation itself, lots of gardens (they weren’t really in bloom while we were…

    Ever Pretty Dresses Review

    I’ve found a new place to shop dresses and I’m losing my mind a bit here because it’s almost too good to be true. Ever Pretty was so generous as to gift me two dresses of my choosing for review. Of course, I was over the moon because I just love my dresses. It took me a fairly generous amount of time to choose, but I settled on a v neck party dress with red flowers and an a-line pink number. When they arrived in the mail, my initial shock was the quality. These dresses were both under $40 and they are beautiful. I didn’t know about the pleated pink…

    A Weekend in Manitou Springs

    Bucket List item #932 – Manitou Springs Colorado, USA A weekend in Manitou Springs was the first item Dave and I checked off my bucket list and it was a weekend we still talk about to this day. It was our first Valentine’s Day together. I was still at the Art Institute at the time and had taken a travel landscape class. I had to photograph a lot in Manitou for a project and just fell in the love with the city. However, I wasn’t able to properly enjoy the city because I was too busy photographing it. I badly wanted to go back. When the Valentine’s Day holiday rolled…

    How to Make Fast Fashion Look Designer

    Every knows I just love my fast fashion, which isn’t a popular opinion these days (and for good reason). However, I try to treat it respectfully and only buy pieces I really love and I think I will wear a lt. I treat fast fashion like I would treat a designer garment, and that makes all the difference. I get asked by friends and even people on the streets all the time about the garments I wear, thinking they’re designer, and people are shocked when I say things like, “thank you, it was $5!” I am a firm believer there are diamonds in the rough for any cheap brand. So,…

    Amish Country

    Bucket list item #974 Amish country Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA Man moons ago, Dave and I ventured to Pennsylvania for the wedding of our friends. We stayed in Harrisburg, PA, which was basically Amish country. Seeing the Amish in real life was one of my earliest bucket list checks. You see, I didn’t start to really write down these goals until after Dave and I started dating, and (I believe) this was only our second check. I have to admit, there isn’t a lot to tell you about this day even though it was one of the most fun days of my life! Basically, we rented a car and spent the…

    Passaic River Great Falls

    Bucket list item #2361 – Passaic River Great Falls Paterson, New Jersey, USA Last weekend, Dave and I went to a party a couple friends of ours were hosting. It was in New Jersey, so of (of course) the first thing I did was jump on my bucket list to see if any of my checks were nearby. There wasn’t one, but two! Sadly, one was out of season, but there was a lovely set of waterfalls ripe for the picking! These waterfalls were in a very interesting location. There’s basically a park built around the main part of the waterfalls, which is protected, but as soon as this small…

    Skincare Update

    As promised, I’m here to give a little skincare update. I’ve been on a rollercoaster ride with my skin lately, and as such have tried so many things in the last year and even more so in the last six months. However, I want to skip to the good stuff that has actually worked for me! A little background: I’ve always struggled with acne. There are pockets in my life where I’ve had clear skin, but those moments were fleeting. I’ve never been able to get it truly under control, although I’m starting to feel like I just didn’t try hard enough. These days, I’m like a dog with a…

    Rainbow Bagels

    Bucket List item #966 – Eat rainbow bagels @ The Bagel Store New York, New York You heard that right: rainbow fucking bagels! I guarantee you’ve seen this massive craze in NYC for years now. There are lots of stores serving up something similar these days, but we went straight to the source for the OG rainbow bagel. Approaching the shop, it’s surprisingly unassuming, but there’s a line at the door. This is a grab-and-go joint, so don’t expect to sit and enjoy your colorful goodness. You’ll have to be patient and take your bagel to go. They have a plethora of bagel and smear options, but we went straight…

    Don’t Be a Troll

    I’m going to start by summarizing for those ass holes out there that can’t read more than a sentence. There’s always going to be trolls raining on your parade. Bring a fucking umbrella. I always forget an umbrella. Why is that? Can you imagine masochistic dick wads falling from the sky literally on your skull with nothing to protect you? Fuck the umbrella, I need a god damn helmet! I’m feeling…irked today. Irritated. Positively provoked. You see, I dared to post a picture on my Instagram holding a breast. It ignited a beacon for the men of the internet to flock and bring forth gifts of unsolicited suggestions. “Why do…

    Fuck Bras

    Do you remember some time ago when I wanted to go a week without a bra and report back? That never really happened because I had nowhere interesting to be that week, so I determined it was better left for another day. Instead of revisiting my experiment, I slowly integrated it into my life overtime. It wasn’t a conscious decision; it just sort of happened. I’ve gained some more weight since that time (hey PCOS, thanks for nothing) which pushed me into a true plus-size. I was teetering before, but now I sit at a solid size 14. For all my plus-size ladies out there, I realize you must be…
