I’ve been busy lately writing not only for Girl About Town, but also for Dayton Local and The Glossy Pages. Dayton and beauty are two of my favorite things so it’s been thrilling writing for blogs that feel that way, too! It’s easy to get all this done with Julia keeping [...]
You know those terrible, often harassing, email forwards so popular in the early 2000s? Well a lot of older people still circulate the same old emails with poor graphics and all. I received one not too long ago that had some actual wisdom (you know, once you get past the .gif of a [...]
When I was in 9th grade, I started reading poetry (specifically the Romantics – Keats, Byron, Shelley, etc.) and fell head over heels for the stuff. Over the years my interest wanes and then for no reason at all I’ll pick it back up again. I’m currently on another poetry kick and was [...]
