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. I’m pretty hard on pants as it is – the inner thigh blowout struggle is real. Unfortunately all the movement involved in biking only speeds up the wearing-out process. End result: pants and shorts in my closet have a very short life expectancy. In my quest for clothes that  ...

Eyeshadow Palette Swatch Round-Up: July 2018

  I posted this on my instagram account a few days ago, but I thought it would also be useful to make an actual blog post for posterity.

Long Term Favorites: Five Years of Blogging

  Can you guys believe it’s been over FIVE YEARS since I started this blog? To be honest I’m a little surprised by that. I’ll be the first to admit it: I’m a hobby hopper. I love learning about new things, so it’s not unusual for me to have short-lived projects and then move onto something else. I feel like I’ve really found my passion with blogging though. Not only do I get to combine my loves of writing & photography, it also gives me an outlet  ...
