beach day

Going to the pool is cool, but going to the beach is everything. Once we hit Jamaica’s north coast, we were at the beach every single day. Even though I can’t swim (I know, I know…but it’s on my list!), I like spending time…

Instagrammed // Jamaica, Jamaica

  I’ve missed you all!!! I spent all of last week in Jamaica, and made the conscious decision to take a true vacation and not check any work email or do any blogging. It was AMAZING! Sometimes, you really just need to unplug and…

take me to the ocean


Source I’m so excited; tomorrow I’m heading to Jamaica for an entire week. I’ve never taken a real, full-week vacation (ever)! I’m bringing my computer, but I don’t intend on doing much blogging (if any). I may have some other surprises on the blog…

Independence Day

Quentin and I spent Independence Day in Chicago! It was my first time there, and we had a good time visiting his brother’s family and exploring the city. It was a full house–Q’s brother and wife have a 7-year-old, a 2-year-old, and a brand…

The past two weeks have been pretty eventful and a lot of fun. This past Monday, I celebrated Memorial Day with Quentin’s cousins, which was cool. We hung out at South Street Seaport. It was a really cool vibe, and there was a good…

Celebrating Brittany

My good friend Brittany graduated with her Masters this past Friday, so Quentin and I went down to D.C. to celebrate with her and all our friends. It was a quick trip–just Saturday afternoon to Sunday morning–but well worth it! We enjoyed ourselves, and…

Instagrammed // Snowboarding + Robert Glasper

Quentin took me snowboarding in VT. It was my first time doing anything like that. The first day was TERRIBLE; I was falling all the time, and I almost got frostbite. The second day was much better. I had a much better instructor, and…

I haven’t done an “Instagrammed” post in a while, so I have a TON to share with you! I’ve really enjoyed being in New York. Q and I spent some time at brunch with one of his oldest friends, Jake Barker (they’ve known each…

Instagrammed // Post-NYC-Move Update!

Had a little party last weekend to celebrate my move to NYC and say “farewell” to all my DMV peeps. It was a house party, but I was feeling fancy, so I wore this red midi dress from ASOS and loved it. The party…

Moving Day

I finally picked up and moved to NYC yesterday! Quentin and I drove up to New York and emptied an entire Uhaul van into my grandma’s apartment. So many things could have gone wrong that day, but the moving went pretty smoothly. God was…

This is Linnea, and This is How I Dress

Linnea (check out her natural hair and beauty blog!) is one of the very first people I met when I moved to D.C. in 2009 (it’s already been over 3 years!!!). It’s so weird, but we INSTANTLY clicked, and we’ve been friends ever since.…

Instagrammed // So. Many. Selfies

I don’t think I’ve ever Instagrammed this many photos of myself. No, really! I honestly didn’t think I was photogenic in selfies. Blame it on my bone structure (or lack thereof). I would take tons of shots, and none of them would look “good…
