Alaska Video

Remember when I said that I had already posted my last Alaska post? I lied! Whoops! I finally had time to sit down and sort through the hours of GoPro footage we had to put together a fun little video. I think I’ll ultimately make a longer version for the four of us, but I…

Springing Up My Wardrobe

I have a few trips coming up: Dallas, Atlanta, and Alaska (!!!). I’m going to Dallas for the rewardStyle conference and I’ve been on the hunt for cute clothes.

On My Radar
