Festival Style 2018 – What I’m Wearing

The Festival begins this weekend! Don’t miss out on the best fashion spotting of the year in an enchanted forest near you.  Every year from July through Labor Day, a forest near Bristol, WI, buzzes to life with music, merriment, and more. From a quest to find a baby dragon to the Joust to the Death, this festival is bound to be hopping with plenty of ale to keep you content and more magic than you can shake an enchanted walking stick ...

Closet Remix – Fourth of July Outfit Inspo

  As I sat down to find some outfits to shoot for the Fourth of July, I realised it’s not something I even usually think about every year. See, my dogs are terrified of the noise of fireworks (as are many dogs) so I spend the day inside participating in exactly zero festivities and, instead, snuggling my dogs and reminding them they’re alright. If you, too, have a scardey pup, I highly recommend this article by Christine at ...

Queer Books for Pride | LGBT Picture Books

Picture Books for Pride Month It’s the last day of Pride month! These lists are going to continue into July and beyond (probably slowing to one per month) but I wanted to squeeze out one last list to close out the month. Today’s booklist is one I’m quite proud of and have been working on for a while. We’ve got picture books for ages 0-5 with LGBT themes. As Early Learning and small children are my forte, this list is dear to my heart. That ...

Know your LGBT History | Queer Books for Pride

Know your LGBT History | Queer Books for Pride You know that thing where I’m a librarian by day? That means I know a lot of books. Like, a lot. My goodreads has 514 books on it right now and that’s only what I remember to log, nothing compared to the number of books I’ve actually read. One of the topics I consider myself highly well read in is LGBT fiction, specifically for teens as, let’s be honest, YA lit is a guilty pleasure for so many. ...

My Look for the Chicago Pride Parade 2018

  Happy Day After Pride, friends!  If you celebrated yesterday, I hope you had a truly wonderful time. Do yourself a favor and grab a large glass of water. Don’t worry, I’ll wait. This was my first year going to the Pride parade and I had a BLAST. We had a group of friends over beforehand for some pregaming and glitter makeuping. We had our truest gaggle and it was amazing. So definitely a great start to my first Pride ...

Girls Girls Girls Tee from Aloher by Wegan for Pride

Pride Month and just life in general have been bananas lately… But I just had to share this amazing tee from my fave femme duo, Wegan. Their tee line, Aloher, is an absolute favorite of mine!

These pictures are from our St. Louis trip, where I couldn’t ...

Driving to St. Louis with the Toyota Camry #LoveDrives

Driving to St. Louis with the Toyota Camry #LoveDrives It’s been a little while since my St. Louis trip at the end of April. There was so much to write about that I couldn’t pick just one thing! Finally, I’m here to share with you a little bit of this amazing trip and the wheels we had to take us there and back. My friends at Toyota were kind enough to lend me the Toyota Camry XLE for the long weekend for review purposes. ...
