Rise N’ Shine Diner’s New Westcott Location Shines Bright

Crying as I write this because this is the place of my dreams. And because it's already been three days since I've been and I desperately want -no, need- to go back for more. Since I was a little girl, I've had my eye set on one thing - to own something entirely of my [...]

What It’s Really Like to Audition for the Bachelor/Bachelorette

Since I was 12, maybe 13, years old, I've had the weirdest infatuation with The Bachelor. It's, by no better definition, my guilty pleasure. I could tell you every detail about every contestant for probably the past five years. It's not something I'm proud of, but it is what it is. That obsession only grew [...]

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Lash Extensions

So we're coming up on spring. And that can only mean one thing. No, I'm not talking about your eyes readjusting to seeing a bright yellow orb in the sky again, or birds chirping, or people suddenly becoming friendlier, or even the sudden, miraculous disappearance of seasonal depression.

What Taking A Solo Road Trip Taught Me.. & Why Everyone Should Solo Travel at Least Once

Taking a solo trip is really the best thing you can do for yourself. The first trip I took completely on my own included a spur of the moment decision, deciding weeks before, packing my bags, hopping on a plane across the country and living in Los Angeles for 4 months. Now you don't just [...]
