Portsmouth, NH Might Be My New Favorite Place

Sometimes you fall in love with a city, and that’s what happened with Portsmouth. Last December, Bill and I decided that we would forgo traditional Christmas gifts and instead try to gift each other memories in the form of weekend getaways. We would each pick a place that we felt the other would enjoy visitingContinue reading “Portsmouth, NH Might Be My New Favorite Place”

Things I Wore (and Did) in September 2017

September makes me think of new beginnings. For that reason, the month brings me comfort. I kicked off this month with a visit from my mom, who was in from California. It was so nice to see her, though hard to say goodbye! With her and my grandma, Bill and I visited my little brotherContinue reading “Things I Wore (and Did) in September 2017”

Things I Wore (and Did) in August 2017

Sometimes life goes by faster than you realize and, before you know it, it’s mid-September and you haven’t posted your August outfits yet. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ In truth, August is not one of my favorite months, as by then, summer has gone on a touch too long for me. I get tired of the heat and find myselfContinue reading “Things I Wore (and Did) in August 2017”

It’s Not Personal—It’s Drag(Con NYC)

I’ve said it before; I’ll say it again: I. LOVE. RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE. In April, I was lucky enough to attend my first-ever RuPaul’s DragCon, where I experienced the magic of drag in person and got to meet one of my favorite queens, Trixie Mattel. It was also my first real convention experience, so itContinue reading “It’s Not Personal—It’s Drag(Con NYC)”

Weekend Getaway to the Connecticut Shoreline with Our Dog

Summertime gives me a serious case of FOMO. I scroll through everyone’s lavish photos from their elaborate vacations and I want to be there, too. That feeling has been elevated lately with the current political climate keeping my husband and me at our wit’s end, and with new jobs for the two of us (AKAContinue reading “Weekend Getaway to the Connecticut Shoreline with Our Dog”

Things I Wore (and Did) in July 2017

One of my favorite parts about looking back on the month’s outfits is that it gives me a good sense of all of the things I’ve done recently. I sometimes find myself feeling like I don’t “do” anything, like I spend far too much time on Twitter retweeting jokes or on the couch rewatching “RuPaul’sContinue reading “Things I Wore (and Did) in July 2017”

Outfits of June 2017

June is one of my favorite months. It’s still the not-quite-too-hot part before summer starts, but there are plenty of warm days that are perfect for lounging around outside or going to the beach. Plus, my anniversary is in June. On June 17, my husband and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary and our eleventhContinue reading “Outfits of June 2017”

A Perfect Week in California

I’m so fortunate to be able to travel as much as I have, especially recently. My husband and I recently took a trip to California—the first for him, and the second for me—so we could spend time with my parents. OK, fine: and also attend RuPaul’s Dragcon. We started our trip in LA, where weContinue reading “A Perfect Week in California”
