40 Before 40 Progress: Bloomington, IN

Just under a year ago – and just a few months before my 35th birthday – I realized I only have a few years to go before I hit that black balloon holiday. (Which is entirely fine with me, btw. Black is my favorite color.) I’m all about experiences, so I compiled my list of things I’d like to do by the time I turn 40. This past Memorial Day weekend I got to check a couple of those off! One of the most ambitious projects on that list (could be a bucket list on its own,  ...

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.

As a kid I went through probably hundreds of disposable cameras and Polaroid packs, and I eventually abandoned engineering school for an art degree. The past few years I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to travel quite a bit, and I always go into my trips with the very best of photographic intentions.

London Calling: The Jo Malone Archive & Blossom Girls Collection

  Over the past year or so I’ve gotten my paws on a quite a few Jo Malone colognes, and it very quickly skyrocketed to being one of my favorite fragrance brands – and by far my most-purchased! Seriously – I talked a bit about the ones I have & combining suggestions here. I’m in love with the understated but sophisticated scents, so it will come as a surprise to exactly no one that the Jo Malone flagship store on Regent Street was an absolute must-visit when  ...
