About Me

I'm a lawyer and fashion and lifestyle blogger living near Baltimore, Maryland. My blog is my creative outlet. I love hunting for vintage jewelry and experimenting with new makeup looks. I also spend my free time crafting and doing DIY projects around our house. I have a handmade jewelry shop and crochet. I also scrapbook, make cards, and bake!

My husband and I travel often and you can often find me with a camera in my hand. I love documenting moments, big and small.

My favorite colors are blue, purple, and silver. I love roses, especially white ones. I celebrate all of the major holidays and love decorating our house from Easter to Halloween to Christmas. I live with my husband, our adorable dog Bella, and our two stubborn but sweet cats.

I've been involved in swaps for almost 5 years!

My Etsy Profile and Wish Lists:


Books, Music, and Movies/TV

Books: My favorite books are fashion books, cookbooks, bibliographies/memoirs, and business books. Some recent include Tim Ferris Tools of Titans, Moorea Seal 52 Lists, Sophia Amoruso #GirlBoss, and Erin Gates Elements of Style.

Music: I love almost all kinds of music. My favorite is rock, pop, and indie. Some of my favorite bands/artists include: Nickelback, Peter Cincotti, Sara Bareilles, Taylor Swift, Meghan Trainor, Linkin Park, Guns N Roses, Andy Grammer Imagine Dragons, and OneRepublic. I also have a soft spot for 90s/2000s boy bands.

The only types I'm not a fan of are rap and heavy metal.

Movies/TV: My favorite things to watch are dramas and comedies. Some of my favorite movies are: Pitch Perfect, Julie/Julia Project, Gone in 60 Seconds, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Coyote Ugly, Sex and the City, The Devil Wears Prada, Divergent, Inception, and Breakfast at Tiffany's.

I do not like horror or sci-fi movies.

My favorite TV shows are: Revenge, Nashville, Scandal, The Tudors, Reign, State of Affairs, Mad Men, Once Upon a Time, The Newsroom, House of Cards, and Game of Thrones.
