Airbnb: Harry Potter Edition

Airbnb: Harry Potter Edition

I don’t know if I would say I expected an owl-delivered letter from Hogwarts on my 11th birthday, but I was certainly disappointed when it didn’t come!

ThredUp Review

ThredUp Review

I am a clothing hoarder. It’s true. I’ll keep 3 pairs of heels that are black because they are all slightly different. One has a peep toe. One has a t-strap. One is just PERFECT with that dress. When I was younger, my mom would tell me if I bought an article of clothing, I […]
