what to wear on the 4th of July

IMG_0784edit

AH. My favorite holiday. For so many reasons. All listed below. I like lists, can you tell? REASONS MAL LOVES THE 4TH OF JULY: I love America, obviously, (I would have moved by now if not). I feel like this goes without saying but I am pretty proud to have been born and raised in the U S of A. Summer is my favorite, despite the temperatures wanting to kill me. I really do still enjoy this season. Whenever I…

father’s day guide 2016

fathersday

Ah, Dad’s day is here again! For me (being the daughter of an outdoorsy, tech-savvy, lawyer who seems to know about the cool, new gadgets waaaaaay before I do, which is really saying something btw), Father’s Day gifts can be quite the challenge. Maybe you can relate? It’s like every time I see something and think, “Ah yes he would love that,” I realize he already has whatever said thing is. And then I try to buy him clothes and…

i made (healthy) cookies and here is the recipe

cookies1

  I BAKED. without [almost] catching the house on fire or setting off smoke detectors or creating a disastrous “dessert” in the end. Because yes, all of the above have happened. Let me try to revisit the terror of December 22, 2013 when I, home alone and clearly bored, attempted a rather complex Paula Deen mint brownie recipe. I know, sounds simple enough- that’s what I thought too. WRONG. This was when I learned that substituting ingredients in baking recipes,…

wednesday words | mind over matter

words1

  What up. It’s Wednesday and here are some words. I’m realllll into the whole “quotes” section of the Pinterest world. I mean realllllllll into it. So, I decided to take a few of my favorite ones and compile them all into one big mess. Pretty mess. Color-coordinated mess, because it’s me and color coordination is the sort of thing I live for. I usually try to keep all content on here my own unless otherwise mentioned, but I kinda…

  New week, new songs. Shout out to my cool friend Kelsey for making me a playlist with new jams and thus contributing to this list. I am obsessed with every song on here, but “Take It Al Back” by Judah & the Lion is my absolute favorite. So, if you don’t listen to any others, listen to that one. Also, really digging the Elle King song and Calum Scott cover. Anyways, enjoy and have a terrific weeeeeek! Listen below:…

worry is a thief

I’m quite the overthinker. Why is there a red line underneath overthinker? Is that not even a word? Brb, googling. Oh, it’s over-thinker. Red line gone. Moving on. Anyways, I tend to analyze everything to a point where I convince myself that these far-fetched “things” I have thought are reality. Did that even make sense? I think everyone does this to an extent. I listen to my friends overthink their problems and they listen to me overthink mine. And then…

23 is weird

Being 23 is weird. I don’t know if I like it. 21 is still my favorite so far, and then 22 is my number of choice so…. 23 had a lot to live it up to starting on July 20 of last year. I blame my age, but I think it is more of the season of life that is the real issue here. 23 just got unlucky enough to fall right in the middle of it. From practically birth…

blue skies had me like

  everything I am wearing is from forever 21 except the backpack (h&m) HEYA GUYS. It’s {almost} FRIDAY. Hope you are all doing great and ready for the weekend! Here’s a short and sweet post to kick off the celebration. I am really in love with this floral print. I wore this duster in NY after I bought it at that massive Forever 21 in Times Square. It’s looks so delicate and feminine in these photos. I live for dusters,…
