To celebrate our three-year anniversary, my boyfriend and I drove about one hour west this past weekend to explore Ann Arbor, Mich. (aka, we drank a ridiculous amount of craft beer, attended a semi-funny improv show, and ate a lot of really good food). The trip was a total success, and we’ll definitely be making our way back … Continue Reading

Although I may already be prepping for cooler weather, I’m not 100 percent ready to give up my summer style just yet. And with temperatures still reaching an all time high in my home state (think upper 90s on a daily basis), it doesn’t seem like summer is ready to ditch me either.

According to Allure, designer Tina Gorjanc’s project — appropriately named Pure Human — mixes biotech and fashion in a rather interesting way. In an effort to … Continue Reading

Truth time: Despite embodying the exact definition of a 90s kid (gel pens, Lizzie McGuire, chokers, and The Spice Girls were definitely my jam back in the day), I never truly understood Pokémon. I remember having a dozen or so Pokémon cards that I would bring to school to attempt to fit in, but, in … Continue Reading

The off the shoulder, peak-a-boo shoulder, bare shoulder, whatever you want to call it, trend, is certainly one of the biggest of the summer. Shoulders are taking center stage this season, and I, for one, am all about it. A hint of a shoulder can be a subtly sexy way to show a little skin … Continue Reading

Fashion is reflective of the world around us, and everybody requires different clothing that suits the environment and situations they face on a daily basis. Refugees, specifically Syrian refugees, encounter a very unique set of circumstances that many of us who are born in the U.S. will never have to experience.
