When I was in fourth grade, I had a band instructor (or a teacher who was in charge of whatever you call a group of 30 nine-year-olds who don’t know how to play the very expensive instruments they’ve been assigned) who always said “First rule: no dying”. My Whovian readers may recall that the first rule of being a companion to The Doctor is “The Doctor lies”. The first rule of Fight Club? That’s right, “Don’t talk about Fight Club”. And who could ever forget the classic blunders: “Never get involved in a land war in Asia” and (only slightly lesser known) “never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line”?

I’ll be honest, all this sounds like to me is a bunch of rules and I’m not really into rules. So, I’m here to break them. I started this website as a place to put my writing and to talk about all the things I love and they don’t all fit nicely into a little niche. This isn’t a style blog, although I will talk about style here. It’s not a beauty blog but you will find that here too. It’s not about books and it’s not just about my incredible life. I’m here to share it all. I’ll talk about art. I’ll be frank about my struggles. I’ll share some of my favorite recipes and my newfound (or re-found) love of hair scarves. You may even see a poem or two on here. This is my place to invite you into everything I think about and enjoy and I hope you enjoy it too.

I also want to get my readers involved! Look around the site and explore. You can read a little more about me on the “Meet the Author” page and some of my work “in the wild” on the “Recent Work” page. You may notice that there aren’t that many posts yet and I’m definitely going to be working on more and I’ll let you know when they’re up but if there is anything you want to see on the blog (a certain style trend covered, a review of a new movie or book, travel recommendations, whatever) feel free to send me a message through the connect page because I would love to hear from you. In the meantime, thank you for reading! I’m so excited to start this adventure with you all!
