I lived in Vandalia for 20 years, and in that time we never had anything cool. I mean nothing. Tim Horton’s was the coolest thing we had. REALLY. So imagine my delight and, I’ll be honest, jealousy, that Bloom – an incredibly cute and stylish boutique – opened and is taking Vandalia [...]
To walk off some of the calories we happily consumed in Columbus for our anniversary, we decided to do some shopping (because shopping is cardio, never forget that). Since we were in Columbus, we had to visit Used Kids.
I have wanted to shop at Brim for a while now and the opportunity finally came about when my sister and I were spending a random Saturday together.
Brim is located in the middle of the Oregon District and offers a full selection of hats for both men and women. Shoppers [...]
While I was in Hawaii, I loved that every once in a while you would see a tea boutique where you could try and purchase unusual types of tea from all over the world, which is exciting because normally the only selection you have is whatever your grocery store carries. Now that
My sister and I found ourselves without plans one Saturday afternoon so we decided to meet at Butter Cafe before she ventured south to IKEA and I ventured…um…northish? to the Huber Heights Kohl’s (recently renovated, my grandmother insisted that we take a look at it together – it’s shockingly different).
After getting stuffed at The Winds Cafe & Bakery, we ventured out into the wonderful and often perplexing shops of Yellow Springs.
I love going into Dark Star Books to see Eko, the book store kitten. This cat is very comfortable [...]
Every other Saturday, my husband works so I have a full day to myself to run errands, hang out with friends, or watch movies he wouldn’t like. On a recent Saturday, I was left to my own devices and thought I would share what I do when I don’t have any specific plans.
First, I [...]
I love brunch and I love my friends so when these two things come together, it can be hard to go back to our normal non-brunch lives. Such was the case this past Saturday when Jeanine, Beth, and I ventured to Mimi’s Cafe at The Greene for brunch at around 1:00 pm and [...]
You know how I feel about the Pop Up Shops in Dayton – but ARIN puts me over the moon with their gorgeous jewelry. Last Saturday, I decided to check them out ARIN and really didn’t know exactly what I would find. Of course, I’ve heard [...]
The other day I was at the drugstore and found these coral, orange, and pink things and it made me very happy. What made me happier was the 75% off deal on the lipgloss and the BOGO on the rest! Somewhere there’s security footage of me doing a dance in the aisle with lots of [...]
Welcome!I love Dayton, I've lived here for all of my 26 years and don't plan on settling anywhere else. I started this blog as a way to showcase the best of Dayton (as seen through my perspective) and also to share some of the things that occupy space in my mind, namely beauty, home decor, quotes, and various aspects of my life.
