Word of the Year: A 2018 Space Odyssey

I’ve never been much of a “New Years Resolution” gal. Partly because most of major life happenings and shifts into big changes have happened in the late summer-early autumn months, so turning the page into the next year was merely a nuance of writing a new number at the end of the date. More importantly, […]

“Me, Too” I said to the Barista

It was a clear, full, wonderful afternoon. A day that was warm with the tinge of fall buried itself in the flashes of cool breezes. That morning I had traveled a few hours to do a photoshoot, one of my biggest gigs to date, and has just finished the session followed by an amazing late […]

A Time to Reflect | End of Summer Musings (and JORD Watch review!)

It seems like the constant conversations I’ve had as of late circle around the fact that summer is basically coming to a hard and fast close. And no one is digging it. I get the sense that it’s less about saying “goodbye” to the carefree summer days, but more the realization that it was anything […]

This One Thing

You guys. I started writing this post almost two months ago. I’ll never understand how the sweltering heat and humidity of a southern summer make the days feel like they’re moving in slow motion but the weeks fly by… how is 2017 already over half-way over? ——– Does anyone remember the scene in Garden State […]

Who is Planet Sheila

You’re probably wondering why I didn’t phrase the title as a question. The truth of the matter is that it is a constant question of mine, and the following is my feeble attempt to explain the enigma that is my mother. Ladies & Gentlemen. Who is Planet Sheila. To understand where “Planet Sheila” comes from, you have […]

Love Thy Neighbor

In the last couple of weeks I’ve had several intense experiences with people in seemingly mundane, everyday occurrences. I don’t know if it was some cycle of the moon or the fact I maaaay have been sneaking an absurd amount of leftover Easter treats (I mean, COME ON they were 75% off), but it left me feeling […]

The Isle of Style: Hilton Head-Bluffton Chamber Fashion Week in Review

I am not exactly what you call a “fashionista.” I’ve spent more money over the course of my life on fitness clothing, and some of my favorite and most-complimented pieces were found in thrift stores. As mentioned in my last post, I was more interested in a good deal (and elastic waistbands) than I was in making investments […]

The Virtue of Value

When was the last time you really held something in high esteem? Or looked at a product or piece of art or plate of food and became incredibly overwhelmed by the time and thought that went into making it? When was the last time you thoughtfully purchased something, truly considering the workmanship, production, and the […]

Responsibility: 2017 at a Glance

2017 is here. It’s already February. And I’m not even mad. 2017 came in like a big, squealy sorority girl hug: a little loud and questionably tipsy, but with a gaping mouthed smile – maybe a little ugly-happy cry – and excited to get things started. How weird to be sitting exactly where I sat a […]

Never Give Away Your Hotdog

During a random scroll on Instagram during a particularly stressful week, I stumbled on this photo posted by the Girl Boss account (source unknown): While I’m sure this was meant to be a funny quip about not dealing with people’s BS, for some reason it really hit me hard. Why the crap am I giving people […]
