Awake My Soul

Hey, it’s Laura. I wanted to do a look that felt more like the change into summer. Instead of the bold neon colors that many style their spring outfits with, I’ve decided to do my own monochromatic boldness. I’m still trying to mix more of a color spectrum into my closet, but sometimes I just…

The Biltmore Travel Journal 2

Hey, it’s Laura. This is the second part in my travel journal from my visit to The Biltmore Estate in Asheville. Basically, the Biltmore is a stunning mansion that offers tours describing its long history. The architecture and surroundings alone are amazing to look at. We took a walk through some of the gardens that…

The Biltmore Travel Journal 1

Asheville in itself is a treasure trove of unique eateries and eclectic shops. I’ll probably go back there soon since I enjoyed it so much. It reminds me of a mini New York City, but only with the hipster-y parts collected together in one area. However, this travel journal is inspired by my breath-taking day…

The Morning Rush: Gray & Blue

Hey friends. I’m a big fan of darker/cool-toned colors like black, navy, and gray. There are moments when I turn to pops of whites and deep reds with the occasional tans. Exciting color spectrum, I know. Honestly, I’ve been trying out lighter tones to add some variation in my wardrobe, which currently looks like a…

The Morning Rush: Coffee. Create. Sleep.

Hey friends. I am sleepily writing this second part of “The Morning Rush” series while gulping coffee out of a travel mug. Somehow travel mug coffee just doesn’t taste as good as coffee in a regular mug. I don’t know whether it’s the feel of an actual mug or something more technical like aeration. All I…

The Morning Rush: Flannel & Poe

Hey friends! I’ve decided to start a series about “The Morning Rush” for mornings when you can’t be bothered to do anything, which is practically every one of them. I am not a morning person at all. If anyone talks to me before I have coffee, I’ll probably say things I don’t mean. Yeah, I’m…

The Flying Fish Café

Hey friends! Last year, I went to The Flying Fish Café at Disney’s Boardwalk. Many people think Disney is just a series of parks accompanied by screaming children, but there are a multitude of entertaining places around the property like Downtown Disney and the even lesser known Boardwalk. It’s actually part of the Boardwalk Inn; complete with…

5 Wicked Cool Things (January & February)

Hey friends! Let’s just go right into my collective favorites for January and February! 1) Halsey Halsey is in my favorites for the entire 2016 and it’s only the beginning of the year. Her music has a completely unique sound, and her honest lyrics are a huge reason why I am able to listen without…

Floral Jumpsuit & Red Ombré

Hey friends! There are three things that make my ideal look: black, floral and leather. You can’t go wrong with the combination of delicate florals with bold leather. Also, when there’s a comfy jumpsuit in the mix, it’s all good. Truthfully, the only difficulty with this look is that it’s a difficult bathroom situation. Hey,…

The Best Paella – Zen Fusion Restaurant

Hey friends! This is a food post dedicated to my favorite restaurant in Charlotte: Zen Fusion. It’s a Spanish tapas place infused with some more Asian style dishes. Although, I do tend to go for the tapas because the flavors are incredible! Chorizo makes anything taste better. It’s the supreme of meats. Weirdly that description…
