It’s so hard to believe that it’s already July and that I’ve officially lived in DC for a year! So much has happened in the last year, including the fact that I started this here blog. 😉 It’s nice to have something that’s not only a hobby, but a creative outlet for me as well. While I may not have mastered the business side of blogging just yet, I’m really enjoying it for what it is and love reading the comments you guys leave me.


Are you a blogger, thinking about starting a blog, or a brand that wants to connect to bloggers? If so, then you should come out to the next Blogger Scene event! It’s taking place on June 9th at the VIDA Penthouse Pool & Lounge at The Yards in DC! Lots of local bloggers, along with myself, will be there. CLICK HERE for more details.

Fun back story about myself and Blogger Scene–

When I first moved to the DC area a year ago I had barely any friends. Honestly, it was depressing…I went from having friends and knowing every door guy and dj at every bar to essentially knowing NO ONE. The saying “little fish in a big pond” seemed more like “little fish in a MASSIVE OCEAN” at the time. Since I knew I wanted to start a blog, I sought out some DC bloggers on Instagram to start following (p.s. I’m obsessed with following fashion bloggers on Insta– I could look at outfit posts all day errrday). One of the bloggers I found was Ashley in DC. Randomly, I saw a post that she put up on her Insta about a blogger event. I left a comment on the Blogger Scene Insta that it sounded fun and that I wanted to go. They reached back out and said that I definitely needed to come. Naturally, I called all of the TWO people I knew in DC and asked if they wanted to go; they couldn’t. I thought there was no way in hell I’d want to go by myself, because A. I didn’t even have a blog yet. B. that’s SUPER scary and out of my comfort zone and C. I had nothing to wear. A, B, and C all seemed pretty lame, but I psyched myself out enough to not want to go anymore…

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and while flowers and a card are always nice, it’s also special to show your mama that you put a little extra thought into her gift this year…and that you didn’t just pick it up on the way to her house this Sunday. 😉 For those of us who are ‘ballin’ on a budget’ it’s tricky to find a gift that doesn’t come off as ‘cheap’. That’s why I came up with this Mother’s Day Gift Guide that won’t break the bank– EVERYTHING IS UNDER $100! I even threw in a couple gift ideas for those of us that have Mother-in-Laws or potential Mother-in-Laws.

On a personal note: I could not be MORE EXCITED that my mother is actually flying into DC for Mother’s Day to spend it with my sister and I (my sis is driving down from NY)! My mom has only been up here once and it was when I first moved a.k.a. we slept on an air mattress. My apartment and friends-situation have both come a long way since then, so I can’t wait to show her my place and have her come brunch with the girls!

I’d love to know if you end up buying something for your mama off my gift guide, so leave a comment below if you do!

Happy Early Mother’s Day to all you amazing mamas!
