March Stitch Fix: Spring Fever

Maryland is such a tease. We had a couple 60 degree days last week and then over the weekend there was more snow. MORE SNOW. I am SO sick of snow!

At most.I love checking out fashion and style bloggers on their blogs and instagram for styling ideas… but OH MY GOD why can’t I find anyone MY size?!...more

Turning It All Off

The other day while mindlessly perusing Facebook, I came across a picture on my timeline that said,“No cellphone, no Facebook, no computer access, no wifi for three months & you get $3 million. Could you do this?”I thought, “Heck YEAH I could do it for $3 million!” and promptly forgot about it.

Croissants (not) from Scratch

Fun fact: when choosing which language I wanted to learn in school I chose French, even though everyone else I knew took Spanish. I actually took one year of French in middle school, followed by two more years of French in high school before deciding to take a year of Spanish.Another fun fact: I can’t speak French OR Spanish.

So, that’s a win in my book!...more
