Authenticity in Social Media

It’s hard to be a stranger to social media. Some people manage to stay disconnected, but the majority of us that own any type of smartphone or computer participate in it in some form. Those of us that do partake in these little digital worlds find ourselves checking them several times a day. It’s fascinating that it has very much become a part of our lives. Clearly social media has evolved over the years as well. All of the platforms started out as a place to share photos and updates with people you personally knew or knew of, but the…

In the Details

Everyone needs a little dose of sparkle and shine. Jewelry is completely underrated, though, and I’ll admit that I don’t experiment with it enough.

It’s just the art director and me that make up the design department at our company, and we have two very large web design projects going on simultaneously. This is of course on top of all the random requests that come in from other clients as well, but luckily our bosses have been gracious enough to let us hire a freelancer to help us pick up the extra assignments. Needless to…

Dressing for the Sweltering Heat

When it comes to the weather, I’m pretty much the brunette version of Goldilocks. I can’t stand it when it’s too cold, and I definitely can’t stand it when it’s too hot. Of course it’s my luck to live in a climate that chooses to only have two seasons: winter and a 9-month-long summer. Georgia heat is its own beast. Not only is it hot, but it’s incredibly humid as well which makes it feel like you’re stepping into a sauna every time you venture outside. Thankfully I’ve learned a thing or two about how to dress for the sweltering heat…
