Quoth the Raven: an Edgar Allan Poe-Inspired Halloween Costume

Is it really a shock that I've been planning my halloween costume since late July? One of my favorite creative things to do as a blogger as well as a human is to put things together. Ikea cabinets, photo shoots, costumes, the works. I've been hinting towards this look for a little while, and without [...]

Life is like a box of chocolates, they say. You never know which one you might bite into. I could talk all day about my favorite sweet treats, but at this moment I'm enjoying several things that can't be eaten, like Ariana Grande's fantastic new album, Sweetener, and some luscious sweet-themed beauty products. https://open.spotify.com/album/3tx8gQqWbGwqIGZHqDNrGe?si=qcIp4lfDRHeJpCSvC3UTVw   [...]
