I’ve always been a person who was comfortable with ambition. The first job I ever wanted? President of the United States. (I still think I’d be better at it than Donald Trump.) Lately, I’ve been talking with a lot of inspirational and hard working women. As I try my best to prepare myself for the […]
A buffalo coin (worth $50!) After my delightful clothing swap a few weeks back I found myself with a ton of clothes. The way my clothing swaps work is everyone leaves their clothes and the host disposes of them somehow. Usually people take them to Goodwill and that was part of my plan too. However, […]
Snacks for the swap Monday night I hosted my very own clothing swap! I’ve attended a few over the past year but never been the host. I love clothing swaps. They’re a fantastic way to meet people, pick up new clothes for free and spend a few hours in the company of other women. I’m […]

March, you beautiful bastard. It was a heckuva month. I feel like it started two seconds ago. There was a lot of work and a lot of stress but it was also a great month for debt payoff. March is now officially my highest payoff month ever!
South By SouthWest 2015 is in full swing here in Austin. The two week long festival is comprised of three distinct parts- Interactive, Music and Film. Interactive (the media and tech worlds meet sales and PR) kicked us off last Thursday and my-oh -my, has the town been busy.
This morning I slept an hour past my alarm. I set my alarm for 8:00 every morning and try really hard to stick to getting up out of bed within 15 minutes of it. I love sleep and these cold winter mornings (mid-thirties in Austin- that’s freezing here!), it can be brutal to get out […]
