You know the saying. “It’s not about what you know, it’s about who you know.” You’ve probably hear some iteration of this at one point or another. I can recall back in college when I first moved to California and learned the importance of “networking,” and I remember thinking to myself that networking seemed to come so easily to everybody… but me.

Mastering Monochrome Style this Winter

There’s an effortlessness to monochrome style that I think a lot of people are somewhat hesitant about (myself included). Get it right, and you look like someone who understands style and color to a T. Get it wrong, on the other hand, and you might wind up looking like someone who hasn’t grown out of his or her matching set-wearing childhood days.

If there’s one thing about me I’ve always found kind of funny, it’s that I kind of hate–and am just genuinely confused by–beauty routines. Now, don’t get me wrong.

But, for adventurous travelers looking for a more unusual, off-the-beaten-path, unforgettable experience while coasting along this Loop, that’s where this place comes in.

Packing for a Winter Vacation

From figuring out where to strategically place your shampoo so it doesn’t burst open during the flight, to seeing just how many pairs of shoes you can realistically get away with bringing without exceeding the baggage weight restriction, packing your bag–or bags–for a trip is, in my opinion, the worst.

Why Comfort and Style Shouldn't be Mutually Exclusive

There’s a reason women in stilettos and skin-tight dresses stand out. And, at least in my opinion, it’s not because they look good (although, yes, they might). It’s because, half of the time, you can just tell that they’re not comfortable.

How to Choose the Perfect Furniture for your Space
