People Will Talk; Don’t Be A Victim

“STOP LETTING PEOPLE WHO DO SO LITTLE FOR YOU CONTROL SO MUCH OF YOUR MIND, FEELINGS, AND EMOTIONS.” -WILL SMITH People will be people. People will talk, gossip, and criticize. Regardless of what you do, or how you do it, or when you do it, you will not satisfy everyone. Our minds hold great power—believe you are strong; believe you will accomplish your goals. You were put on this earth, endowed with certain qualities and traits, to accomplish a specific mission. Time is finite, and your life is so very precious. What value can you bring to the world? What […]

Propelled By Stress

“IT ALWAYS SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE UNTIL IT’S DONE.” -NELSON MENDELA It’s Saturday afternoon and I am sitting in the Barnes & Noble Café with Parker, studying. I remember being in the exact same place last year—barely through my first semester of law school. There was so much uncertainty, so much fear. Studying for hours on end, thinking all my effort was never enough… Now, here I am. I made it through my first year of law school—a different feeling this time around. I made it. What seemed like impossibility turned into victory. We have all had these moments—gut-wrenching, stress-inducing fears of […]

Investing In Yourself

“IF YOU WANT TO INVEST IN SOMETHING WITH MINIMUM RISK AND A GUARANTEED BIG RETURN, INVEST IN YOURSELF.” -UNKNOWN This topic has been coming up a lot lately—and is something that is near and dear to my heart. Investing in yourself can be anything from purchasing that one pair of shoes to loading up on books at your local bookstore to a monthly gym membership. The surest return, where you are guaranteed a 100% (or more) return on what you invest, is when you invest in yourself. It bugs me so much when I hear people say, “I don’t eat […]

TOP 10 Vital Staples All Fashionistas Should Consider

This past weekend, I went on an expedition through my closet—and made a discovery… I have virtually run out of space and need to re-evaluate my wardrobe. No matter what happens, however, my staples will remain. Small spaces work best when optimized! So here goes… Sharp blazer—Can be paired with a t-shirt and jeans. Then—with the addition of some pumps—what was once dull and boring, has instantly transformed into an extremely sharp/sexy look. Dark wash skinny jeans—An absolute must (as likely the most diverse article in any woman’s closet). Pair-able with a dark blazer, a big, chunky sweater, OTK boots, […]

A Well-Read Woman

“A WELL-READ WOMAN IS A DANGEROUS CREATURE.” -LISA KLEYPAS Ever since I was a little girl, books have played a huge role in my life. No matter where I went, I always took a book with me. With the turning of each page, I got lost in the stories, traveling to different worlds and becoming different characters. Over the past few years, seeing more and more wisdom found within, I have moved from fiction to nonfiction works. Parker and I absolutely love to visit Barnes and Noble—you can find us at one of the local B&Ns 4-5 times each week, studying, […]

LOFT—My Absolute Favorite

One of the main reasons I love LOFT is due to their amazing sales! There is not a day that goes by without LOFT offering some awesome deal. Just in September, I brought home two major LOFT hauls, where, essentially, clothes that would have cost $1000 were only $200. And, I mean, I left that place loaded! I took along one of my girlfriends and she was in shock! Kinda awesome. LOFT is one of the most functional stores out there—virtually anything can be dressed up or dressed down. Furthermore, what was purchased from LOFT several years ago can be […]
