The Hanger Capsule

It was amazing to me how many outfits I had pinned over the years to "My Kind of Glitter," the only creative name left for fashion inspo. They ranged from elegant to swimsuits, from quotes to things I wouldn't dare wear. All colors and nearly all styles are represented in a great melting pot of beautiful pictures and ideas. There was no consistency. In searching for my personal style, I was making headway only in quantity. Enter the capsule wardrobe.

Vlog #5: In which our heroine reads more, discovers a rat, loses sight for a few hours, can’t remember how to play her own song, and sits at a red light.

  In case you missed the vlog or the instagram pictures in real time, here is the compilation of my Recorded Weeks #5. I re-structured my morning routine, which is going unbelievably well, played around with soft rollers!, and had a very trippy ocular migraine. I also wrote two poems which can be found in …

Self-less Self-care

I've spent many years hating the term "self-care." I think this came from a mostly good place: I want to be a selfless, Christ-centered person, and "self-care" sounded like weekly mani/pedis while sipping mimosas. Ultimately, this was a fundamental misunderstanding of the concept and a soured perception from the indulgent example of a few bad …
