Currently Coveting: Yoga Mats

I have a tense relationship with shopping. While I love acquiring new items (‘cause, um, who doesn’t?), I often find the process of finding the “right” piece of clothing, tech piece, home accessory totally overwhelming.

Midsummer Favorites

Today I’m coming at you with my current favorites. Looking back on my last favorites round-up back in April, it’s crazy how many things I’ve worn, food I’ve eaten, and objects I’ve obsessed over between now and then.

Owning It

Whenever I’m lacking inspiration, I love searching YouTube for interviews with some of my favorite creatives. It wasn’t exactly surprising, then, to find myself a few days ago curled up with a segment with one of my favorite authors, Roxane Gay. The program was mostly about Gay’s short story collection, Difficult Women (10/10 would recommend), […]
