Things that scare me about home ownership

I have only just started saving for a house, but already I’m beginning to imagine how nice it’ll be to not work out of a bedroom and to have enough space to take that kitchen cart out of storage. (Speaking of which, I totally forgot what we even have down there; it’s like a Noah’s [...]

dating

The other day I was greeted by Eric’s status update in my Facebook feed and I thought back to a time when I was fresh meat in the dating pool and he had asked me out on a date. Unsure of the dating rules after such a long sabbatical, I allowed a mutual friend to [...]

“You need to get a hold of yourself.” “I know,” I mumbled to the strap of my seatbelt as I turned to face the rolling landscape. On some days I find car rides soothing. Today was not one of those days. “It’s just… I dunno. It makes me sad.” There was no possible way of [...]

A lot has happened in the past few days. I nearly lost my job at the same time that I was contacted about a few other possibilities (it is absolutely true what they say about doors opening and closing when we least expect them to). I have also been putting the finishing touches on a new website [...]

Flora Nuit

A few weeks ago, a boutique pop-up lingerie shop made its way to Montclair, NJ, where I then hosted my very first lingerie party. I was able to see friends I hadn't seen in ages and introduce girls who hadn't yet met before, as we  updated our wardrobes with some really adorable lingerie and jammies. A lingerie party wouldn't be complete without a [...]
