Tattoo Aftercare: No Fancy Potions Required

  Did you guys check out my new artwork? I decided a while back to go for a (mostly) full sleeve on my left arm – with just enough blank space for makeup swatches – and last week I had the first session for it. All the line work is complete, and I’m SO EXCITED about it! Because peonies, amiright? When I posted a pic on instagram aftercare came up in the comments, and I thought to myself, that’s probably a good idea for a skincare post. I’ve been using the  ...

Ministry of Supply: The Ultimate Travel & Bike Commute Pants

  I’ve been writing a lot lately about bike commuting. Seriously, it has taken my quality of life up at least five notches. Sadly though, pretty much every pair of pants I own would beg to differ.

A Beauty & Fragrance Lover’s Guide to New York City

  Hi everyone! It’s been a minute since the last time I put up a blog post (I swear I’m trying to be better about that) but we were in New York City last week with some friends and it was a little bit of a whirlwind. Joseph had a tattoo appointment to work on his sleeve, so while he was doing that I finally got the opportunity to run around town and work on a post I’ve been pondering on for a while. You’ll be 100% unsurprised to learn that every time I go to a  ...
