Anyone who knows me knows that I'm dog mom to the max. I mean I take my dog like everywhere with me. I would bring her to work with me too, if they would allow dogs in the building. I feel so bad for her that she spends the majority of her days home alone, so when I'm home at night or on the weekends I try to do things that Ellie can do with me.
One thing I wasn't prepared for post-grad was how lonely life can feel sometimes. Gone are the days when I could walk down the hall and find any number of my friends hanging out in their rooms or on the floor of the hallway. Now it takes a lot of coordination to get the group together and we can't really spontaneously decide to all go out one night as we all work completely different schedules.
One of the most overlooked costs of owning a dog, particularly in the city, is the dog walker. Because I work downtown, I am gone 10 to 11 hours a day. Meaning Ellie is left alone and has to hold it/keep herself entertained until I get home. As this is a lot to ask of a dog, especially a young dog, I choose to hire someone to come in the middle of the day to take Ellie for a 30 minute walk. This costs me around $150 - $200 per month depending on how many times a week I have the dog walker come let her out.
A few months ago my neighbor Amy (amyrojekskin.com) introduced me Jane Iredale products and I'm obsessed.
Almost nine months ago I adopted the cutest little puppy. She had these adorably floppy ears and tubby little belly that would make anyone fall in love with her instantly, and I definitely did. I put in my adoption application immediately after meeting her.
The holiday season is upon us. This means it's time to shop! Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas shopping but it's expensive! I love picking out the perfect presents for my family members and friends, unfortunately I'm on a budget so not blowing all my money is priority number one when Christmas shopping.
And this got me thinking about how habitual some routines become and how that translates over to being a more successful adult. I'm not saying these are the only ways to be more successful in your twenties, but these are my methods for my own personal adult successes (such as always washing my face before bed even when I'm too drunk to put on pajamas).
Fall weather is finally rolling in, making me miss the warm days of summer so I decided to post these pictures of my favorite lace dress this summer.
Alright, real talk. I'm pretty sure almost every college grad everywhere has experienced, even super brief, a period of unemployment or underemployment. Who doesn't know the struggle of applying for a million jobs and getting rejected time and time again? Who among us doesn't know the struggle of making $30 stretch for a week or two?
In case you've been out of the loop, NYFW is happening right now. While everyone else is prepping for Spring 2017 (with a few designers showing items you can buy now for fall, I am eagerly exploring all things fall fashion.
