Fits of Bliss (ModCloth)

It's about that time of winter when we all kind of get sick of it, am I right? I mean, I adore winter and all its snowy glory but once we get past Valentine's Day, I even get a bit tired of it.

I love being warm and cozy but I also love the ease of pulling on a dress and walking out the door without even needing a coat. Or walking back inside from running errands and NOT having to worry about tracking in dirt and slush and grime. Ew.

Petite Friendly Dresses from Collectif

This one goes out to all the shorties out there, for all the ladies under 5'4" struggling with finding dresses that are the right length. What's up, ladies? How ya doing?

OK MC moment over. But seriously, if you're petite like I am (5'2" over here!), you are always wary of ordering retro style clothes in fear they will be on the long side and end up making you look frumpy. Many vintage reproduction brands make garments on the long side to be historically accurate since the style back in the 50s and 60s was pretty conservative and the trendy look was full and long skirts. It's a beautiful look and one I adore tremendously, but so many times I order a dress or skirt and upon trying it on, am frustrated to find it a SMIDGE too long on me. I have learned that if a skirt passes 26" in length, I won't like how it looks fully.

Galentine's Day In (Collectif)

Happy (almost) Valentine's Day AND Galentine's Day! Traditionally celebrated on February 13th, Galentine's Day honors and celebrates the love between gal pals, girlfriends, soulmates, besties - whatever you call your friends. 

Because this year I can't celebrate with my gals in person, I decided to throw a Galentine's Day celebration virtually on Instagram. The idea started when Kristina from The Eyre Effect texted me saying she wanted to do something fun to collaborate for Valentine's.

Merrily Meredy (Collectif)

Ah, here we are, peanuts! It is my favorite time of year when all the girls and boys splurge on pretties from Collectif's big 50% off sale and get to show them off to all their virtual friends. In honor of my new job, I did a bit of shopping in the sale and got more pretties than I ever had in a Collectif sale before at such awesome prices.

Vintage Made Easy with Dressystar

If you've ever bought a vintage-style dress on Amazon, you probably recognize the brand Dressystar. Dressystar creates and sells a large variety of dresses - from bridal and bridesmaid to formal attire to vintage-style everyday frocks. 

Dressystar recently reached out to me for a collaboration and I happily obliged. Especially since I only just recently started my new job (and therefore have NOT started receiving a paycheck yet), I really wanted to take a closer look at Dressystar's quality and fit since their prices certainly are budget-friendly.

Could This Be the Best Chocolate Chip Cookie?

I don't know if it's possible to find THE best chocolate chip cookie. I just don't think it's possible. Why? Well, everyone has different preferences. If you told a group of people to imagine the best chocolate chip cookie, I am willing to bet very few imagine the same cookie.
