I Was Busy Thinking ‘Bout Boys

I’m obsessed with the music video for Charli XCX’s new single “Boys.” A lot has already been written about how it “flips the male gaze on its head,” and you can find plenty of unofficial rankings of the 60 boys who appear in the video, and there’s even a “Boys” Snapchat filter, but I’d recommend you’d start by seeing the magic…

Evolution of Instagram

Over the past few weeks, I’ve found myself using Instagram in a new way. I always thought of it as a place to just see what my friends were up to, so I don’t really follow anyone outside of who I know already in-person. Last year, I tried to follow more influential people on Instagram (wait, there’s a word for that—influencer),…

New Trend Alert: Butt Pads

In case you haven’t heard (you probably have), I’m currently studying for the MCAT. For those of you who don’t know, preparing for this milestone exam is more of a way of life than anything else. Think of finals week, and then think specifically of those few occasions where you were actually productively studying for a solid two hours. Now…

My Legging Addiction

    I recently became a regular at 10 am yoga class. I used to be the first one to claim my dislike for the activity. I thought it was too slow (yes, I know there are many different types) based on one experience in which I had to hold each pose for 15 minutes in a 60 minute class.…

Slides on the Rise

I’ve got to admit- I’m having a real love affair with slides right now. They’re easy to put on, quick to throw off, and they are so darn cute. If you have a bright, summery pedicure, your toes can peek out so nicely. Casual summer barbecue? Slides. Out to drinks with friends? Slides. Work in a casual office? You got…

My California

Upon my arrival back into the U.S. of A. it only took me a few hours to realize how terribly homesick I had been for the 5 mile radius around my parents house. Here are a few of the simple things that make me love and miss my home.                

My 5 Favorite Games

Every couple of weeks, Wesley and I rustle up some friends and convince them (usually after we’ve all met up to get drinks) that wouldn’t it be JUST SO FUN to play a game? We are unashamed to pull out our cards and game pieces even in public places like breweries, and every time interested passersby look on longingly and ask…

Kittens!

This might be the least artsy rad ish post ever, but my parents are fostering kittens and they are too cute!They’re the most important thing happening in my life these days (obviously) so I’m just going to let you look at them doing various kitten things. We’re also fostering the mom, so we get to watch precious domestic scenes like this… and sweet…

Stopping to Smell the Roses

Half of my motivation to run for the past month has been to see all the rose bushes in my neighborhood in full bloom. The colors have been quite a treat, especially since I know the brush-filled hills around my house will be turning brown in the very near future (yay for SoCal summers). My well-intentioned runs have evolved into…
