June Gloom Blooms Are Culottes

As you may or may not know, I have been wanting to buy myself a bouquet of peonies for years now. The experience was quite remarkable–from spotting the buds in the midst of many breathtaking blooms at the flower market to watching them slowly wake up, stretching their petals out completely to reveal their awestruck […]

Keeping Krisunique: How to Decorate Your College Apartment Your Way

I have noticed many “Fashion Girl’s Guides” floating around the Internet in the last few years. These guides reflect everything in life from where you eat, shop, to how you decorate your room.

In a couple of weeks, the biggest music festival of the year is taking place: Coachella! Whether you’ve going to the event to rock out to bands like Arcade Fire and Foster the People or stay at home listening to countless albums wishing you were there, (which is what I’m going to end up doing), you’re probably going […]
