On Posting and Time Management

Life has simply gotten in the way. I feel bad about it. I really want to deliver quality content to you. Problem is, I haven’t had the time, coupled with the energy, to focus on creating quality content. I’ve been wondering if maybe the internet is a larger time suck than I suspected. I’m not …

Thrifting Gucci’s Runway Show Lineup

        I’m not sure I told you the story about my $5 Gucci handbag. I found it at a flea market and since I’d been doing a ton of research, I concluded it was real. I’m assuming the seller thought the “G” pattern made it a Guess bag, because it is somewhat similar …

Modeling for Local Businesses

Water Park and Camper Life?

    The other day, my best friend and I went to a water park near her home. We enjoyed ourselves, but I was not comfortable bringing my phone or either camera inside. We didn’t have a lock to keep our valuables safe, not to mention neither of us were willing to risk our electronics …
