Christmas in July – the Nordstrom Early Access Sale!

Christmas came early this year, #BagelBabes. The Nordstrom sale is here – and it’s here early! One of my first posts ever was about last year’s annual sale and I’m back at it again with my top picks. There’s a ton to sort through, so I did it for you. Below are my top picks from the Nordstrom Early Access Sale – snag ’em before they sell out! Coats & Jackets  I struggle so hard finding jackets that I love that are worth the money. Outerwear is expensive! The Nordstrom Early Access Sale is the best time to snag a fall […]

New Year Resolutions: Mid Year Check In

The fact that it is already July is insane to me. We’ve blown through half the year already – can you believe it?! As we started to hit the halfway point of 2016, I began to think back to something we all tend to forget after the second week of January – New Years resolutions. At the start of the year I wrote an entire blog post on my goals for 2016. I’m treating July like a mid year check-in so here’s how I’ve stacked up to the goals I set way back in January! Drink 4 Bkrs of water a day. […]


3 Ways to Make an Apartment Feel Like Home

I’ve been out of the house now for years. Many years. But even after all these years (and five apartments here in San Francisco) none of my rented spaces have ever felt like a “home.” Yes, even at the age of almost 25, whenever I say “home” I’m still referring to my parent’s house. But I know you feel me. There’s something about rented spaces that don’t really lend to that “homey” feeling – but do they have to feel that way? After moving into my fifth SF apartment I’ve taken measures into my own hands and am creatively coming up with […]

5 Must See Stops in Portland + Life Lately

It’s been a busy couple of weeks! If you follow me on Snapchat (@blondebagel) you know that I moved! I’m seriously exhausted and admittedly not everything is unpacked yet, but I’m almost there! Right before the big move KB and I jet off to Portland! We actually had booked our tickets months ago and found out some of our best friends were headed there over the very same weekend so we travelled as a group! Between trips across Ireland, Italy, and local gems, KB and I are no strangers to travel. We had never actually travelled with anyone else before though so it was […]

4 Reasons You’re Always Late

I’m an OCD early bird. I just am. I think it’s because I grew up with a (wonderful) mom who was always late. She’d swear she would pick me up from school at 3 o’clock but the next thing I knew it was four and I was still waiting outside. Being late drives me insane. I actually start to get anxiety and stressed if I’m running behind schedule! As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized the plague that is lateness doesn’t just afflict my mom – not everyone operates on the same schedule. Some of us love to arrive a half […]

A Day at Disney

I am 24 years old and I’m still totally obsessed with Disney. Judge all you want but I’m like 99% sure that most of you have exactly the same feels. I mean when I hit play on a Disney movie and see Tinkerbell fly over the arch of the castle I just about lose my mind. Being totally jealous of Cinderella’s high heels? Been there, bippity boppity done that. Crushed hard on Li Shang in Mulan? Zero shame. Okay, maybe a little shame. But not much. My mom and I had already settled on spending a very entrepreneurial Mother’s Day […]
