When I say I've been planning my latest video for over a year, I mean it. I've been eyeing zip-tie crown DIYs on Pinterest for a while, and when I saw a celestial-themed cape in Target's 2020 Halloween drop, I was so excited I even preordered it. (I'm the type of girl who loves Halloween/fall... Continue Reading →
Wanting to disconnect from social media isn't a new notion for me. I usually have at least a week or two out of the year that I decide I'll delete all my social apps and be FREE. But I never go as far to delete my entire profiles. (Being an internet "creator" means I can't... Continue Reading →
I had the idea to start a 90s-themed craft series on my YouTube channel several years ago, but like most of the topics I'm more passionate about, I get nervous that they'll be too much work for too little reward. But between the start of the my 30s being very childhood-nostalgia centric and giving myself... Continue Reading →
This week's new video started out a lot longer and different than what ultimately ended up being uploaded: https://youtu.be/4mK7oNWNQCI After seven months without posting videos, I thought it might be fun to create a "What I've Been Up to in 2021 So Far" type of video. Even though I wasn't making videos for the first... Continue Reading →
https://youtu.be/GavWuguPhwY I’ve been challenging myself to periodically write a poem as part of my daily journaling practice. The prompt "Write about your favorite smell" felt like the perfect moment for a poem so I wrote this: But when thinking about videos for August, I remembered I had some pool footage I shot last summer and...

Where have we been? And where are we going? That's the subject of my last video in 2020: https://youtu.be/U0TTHBTQa5c I ended 2019 asking the question: “Where do we go from here?” And thought I’d be taking a much needed creative break from the internet. Then 2020 happened. And how was I supposed to process without... Continue Reading →
Normally, I'd be all packed up and heading to California in less than 12 hours for VidCon. It's what I've done every summer for the last 6 years! But 2018 is a little different for me because I'm not attending. In part because of situational reasons (if you've watched my videos lately, you know that the last 6-8 months have been a big ol' bucket of chaos for me!), but mostly because I feel like VidCon isn't meant for me anymore.
Perhaps I've outgrown it? Or maybe it's just outgrown me?
Here I talk about how I think VidCon has changed since 2012 when I first started attending, and what I'd like to see in an online video conference in the future.
I had the wonderful opportunity to visit my BFF Alanna in New York City at the beginning of May, and I made sure to vlog along the way to capture some of the fun we had! I got to see so many cool places from the High Line to the Museum of the Moving Image, and I even had the chance to catch up with my friend Josh from TheJoshSpeaks who took me to a local vegan restaurant! All in all, it was a great trip and here’s just a glimpse into it!
Last Friday I got to spend the day at Busch Garden Williamsburg eating all kinds of yummy food and filming this awesome video of my adventure for you!
