Hi, my sweets! I’ve been coming down with something (whatever’s been passed around lately) and am surrounded by an army of tissues and cold meds. Thank god for Dayquil and Nyquil.

Globe In–for the traveler in your life

– Posted in: featured, sponsored post

I was not compensated for this review. I received a box from Globe In; all opinions are entirely my own. Have you ever experienced true buyer’s remorse?

Back again

It was a rainy Tuesday, the kind that makes you want to stay in bed a little longer and hit the snooze button a few times too many. I gathered my things and made my way to the address I had pulled up on my phone. As soon as I pulled into the parking lot [...]

Listening: To Meryl’s speech again. And probably again after that. What a gift she is to Hollywood, to her peers, and to all of us who have the pleasure of watching her on screen. Bravo to her for using her platform to address bullying—though sadly, I’m sure it falls on deaf ears to the recipient (le [...]
