I’m not gonna lie. I have been dreaming for about 8 years about prancing through a room filled with quirky dresses from ModCloth. Yesterday, that dream came true! The ModCloth IRL pop-up shop made it’s way to Pittsburgh at 625 Smithfield Street for the last stop of their IRL Tour. The pop-up fit shop will be open through Tuesday, September 27th, Monday-Saturday, 10am-8pm and Sunday, 11am-6pm. Continue reading “My First Ever Blogger Event: ModCloth IRL Pop-up Shop”
It’s hot and I’m sweaty. My fall itch has officially kicked in and I want to buy ALL cozy new things. Unfortunately, funds are a little tight right now, so I’m getting creative with my existing wardrobe! I dug through my closet and realized just how many transitional pieces I have that can give my summer wardrobe a fresh face for fall.
I don’t think there are enough words or exclamation points to describe how head over heels I am for the scallop fashion trend for spring and summer! You guys…I’M IN LOVE, I’M IN LOVE AND I DON’T CARE WHO KNOWS IT!

What makes you dream? For me staring at the night sky sets my imagination on fire. Next time you catch yourself outside at night, take a moment and look up at the moon and the stars. It is such a beautiful thing to be a part of something that is so much bigger than any of us are!
When I saw the Heart and Solar System Dress from the ModCloth namesake label, it reminded me of that sense of wonderment I get when I look at the stars. Throw in a whimsical print, an adorable silhouette with pockets and I was sold! I’ve been wanting to share another Mixtape Monday playlist for a while now and thought what better theme than tunes inspired by the boundless and beautiful, outer space.
I can’t believe that a whole year has passed since starting the Life on a Dot blog! I am so thankful for everyone who has been a part of this whirlwind with me so far. The journey has had its ups and downs, from being featured on some awesome blogs to letting my perfectionism get the best of me. Here’s a few things I’ve learned along the way… Continue reading “3 Things I Learned During My First Year of Blogging”
Hiya, friends! Sorry I’ve been missing in action here on the dot. The past two weeks have been a wonderful whirlwind filled with friends, family, my 10 year high school reunion, work, binge watching Orange Is the New Black, and a few happy hours sprinkled in between! But, I am back and I am bloggin’. Continue reading “What’s Your Style? (And My Style Meltdown)”
Who has two thumbs and really loves Doo Wop & the Golden Oldies? THIS GIRL! I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t. From being a little girl riding around with my dad in his truck to my morning drive to high school with my best friend, I’d always choose to listen to these classics.
One thing that I love about returning home from a vacation is that little reminder that sticks with you to get out and play. Literally, I mean play. Get out of the house, let go, bliss out, do something that makes you feel good, laugh, and look like an idiot.
I grew up in a pretty small, sleepy town. I often joked there were more cows than people and I couldn’t wait to leave. I’d walk to the local shopping plaza to buy fried chicken, corn bread, and peach rings. I stayed out late with friends roaming around town. I spent my free time taking dance classes, getting tattoos, and working at the local Burger King. Again, I couldn’t wait to leave. Continue reading “Where I Come From”
So, life can be a bit of a jokester sometimes. I am naturally a very bubbly, social, and optimistic person, but I’ve got a little secret. I suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder. I know what you may be thinkin’ but nope, I am not amazingly organized (I wish) and you won’t find a clean freak here (sorry, honey)! Instead, I often find myself struggling intrusive thoughts that send me into a vicious cycle of worry, fear, and doubt (ya know, if I leave the Christmas lights on when we’re not home the house WILL burn down). That’s a pretty lame joke, life. Continue reading “I’m a Little Uncool and I’m a Little Uncouth”
