Transitioning From Snow to… Spring?, Style File Friday

So, while a lot of the world is sharing Instagram images of cherry blossoms and flowers blooming and coats that aren’t parkas, there are a whole lot of us who look at the window and still see snow. I mean, I think for most of us that snow is slowly melting, but we aren’t going to truly have spring until sometime in the middle of May. I try to slowly move out of my darker and heavier winter wardrobe when we come to April, but it takes some creative planning and styling for the first month or so!

Introducing… The Way I C It Podcast

Today I’m very happy to share something from a very good friend and Alpha Gamma Delta sister of mine, a new podcast that is launching today! The Way I C It debuts today (four episodes are live already), and Carolina is the perfect host to bring a new podcast in your listening life. Coming in at 15-20 minutes, it is a quick but thoughtful podcast that will make you think about you and your life but keep you moving forward rather than stuck in thought. Carolina sat down with me for an interview and to give more background and insight into her podcast, which I am excited to share with you today!

Will the Trend of Cheap Ever End?

Have you ever told someone that you liked their top, and you heard “Thanks, it was only $8/£4/€1/whatever cheap cost”? That always takes me aback, as I didn’t comment on the price of it whatsoever, but revealing how cheaply it was purchased seems to be a knee jerk reaction now for most people. I am in no way arguing for spending money for no apparent reason, but why have we, as society, become crippled by a need to be cheap? Why is buying things cheaply considered an accomplishment? (Note, I did not say frugally.)

A Guide to Smart Casual for the Office, Style File Friday

I recently changed jobs at the company that I work for, and my new department is quite different from my last! Everyone is incredibly friendly and welcoming, and I am really happy to have wonderful co-workers who make the day brighter. This office is more casual than most though, and I’m definitely working on adapting my style so that I fit more. (I’m not against being on the dressier side, but it does feel odd to be in suit when everyone else is in jeans no matter where you are in life.) This is a guide on how to tackle dressing for a casual office when you come from a formal background!

3 Podcasts Everyone Should Be Listening To

I am a huge audiobook and podcast fan- I love listening to them while I do pretty much anything. Laundry, dishes, running, commuting, travelling, pretty much anything is the perfect background for listening to a podcast. I tend to listen to all available episodes when I find a new podcast, and then once I’m caught up, I have my weekly episode to enjoy. Because finding a good podcast is actually pretty difficult, I spend a lot of time looking up recommendations and “if you like THIS, you will like THAT,”- these are my current recommendations that I think most people would enjoy!

Hosting and Party Etiquette

“Do I have to invite significant others?”, “Do I need to pay for my plate?”, “Speeches??” are all questions that seem to follow people when they are planning a wedding. However, most of us don’t regularly host weddings but rather casual get-togethers at home with friends and family.  This final post in my etiquette series is all about hosting casual parties yourself, and to make the best of it for you and your guests. A little bit of etiquette can go a long way to easy, smooth, and successful parties at home, and make your guests feel that much more comfortable!
