Today’s guest post is by Stella, a graduate student in forestry, who will be returning to full-time tree care following the completion of her degree later this fall. When I started a job in late April working for a tree care company in a major metropolitan area in the Northeastern U.S., I was told what brand and color of pants to wear, which brands of boots would work well, and […]

[Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links.] Thanks to airline credit cards, the flexible schedule of a freelancer, and generous friends with couches, I’m able to travel pretty frequently, but packing is always a struggle. Who knows what could happen on holiday! What if it’s too cold for my sandals? Or I’m invited to a secret ball? Or my flight is rerouted abroad and I find true love and get married in […]

Through the use of mesh, colorblocking, cutouts, and other lingerie-specific features, Michi elevates activewear, asserting that it can and should be just as fashionable as outerwear. Some […]

When I first heard that bras could close in the front, instead of in the unreachable, unscratchable spot on my back, I was overjoyed. Since then I’ve bought bras with front closures when I stumbled into them, but I was often unimpressed by their design; in brick and mortar stores, they tended to be rare and a little plain, without much variety.

As Mother Nature ushers us into fall, that’s a sign for me that it is time to sign up for a race. I’ve never been a fan of summer running, so I eagerly anticipate the cooler weather and those delightful autumn runs in the park. That also means it is time to look for […]

I’m going to miss the World Cup. It has been my constant summer companion, always just a click or glance away. The best thing about the World Cup for a mild soccer enthusiast like myself from a country of middling international soccer achievement is that it provides a reliable flow of delicious drama. I can wade through other people’s joy, frustration, diving, and biting for ninety minutes without having to […]

Disclosure: I received these products free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. BeMeNYC is a fairly new brand (out of New York, of course) featuring pretty and simple renditions of classic styles. They’re also moderately priced, with bras in the $30-$40 range and panties averaging $13. The fabrics are pretty and comfortable, the construction quality is good — all told, I may have just found my new go-to […]
