Stories Written:

This summer, the one thing I absolutely, positively cannot live without is...
"High-waisted shorts! In the summer heat, these magical, line-lengthening items are a five-foot-tall girl's best friend."

Current food obsession...
"Crabbie's Ginger Beer! Crabbie's came to R29's HQ for a tasting and I have been hooked ever since. It's super refreshing — perfect for summer! — and I've always been a huge fan of ginger."

Next up on my Netflix is...
"Pina! As a passionate lover of all things dance, I can't believe I still haven't seen this documentary about the life and work of German choreographer Pina Bausch. Gotta get on that! Now, who's going to let me log into their Netflix account?"

Latest guilty pleasure...
"Frozen Thin Mints! My roommate ordered four boxes a little while back so we've had a seemingly endless, seriously delicious, supply."

The one song I can listen to over and over...and over to is...
"'American Boy' by Estelle featuring Kanye West! It still always puts in a great mood."

My must-have cheap thrill...
"Flea market jewelry! Some of my favorite pieces have come from street fairs and bazaars from around the world."
