The City That Never Sleeps

FacebookGoogle+PinterestTwitterLinkedinTumblrRedditStumbleUponThanks For Sharing!Holiday Dream-Come-True   Ever since I was a little girl, the idea of New York consumed me. “The city that never sleeps“, they called it.

Late Start to 2016: Mapping Out My New Year

FacebookGoogle+PinterestTwitterLinkedinTumblrRedditStumbleUponThanks For Sharing!Moving Forward…Adulting With January almost over, (already?!) and February quickly approaching, I feel as though my start on this year has been a tad late.

Sister, sister!

FacebookGoogle+PinterestTwitterLinkedinTumblrRedditStumbleUponThanks For Sharing! Photo Shoot With My O-So-Cute Siblings In the introduction my grandmother wrote about me a while back on this website, she called me ‘O-Deer’s Style Maven.’ If we’re being honest, I should be O-deer’s ‘So-far-not-super-active-member-because-I’m-a-frazzled-young-adult.’ That’s not so catchy, though.
