The Questions

  • A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read 
I can't even count the number of times I was told to read Harry Potter. True facts: I've never read a single Harry Potter book. I think I missed the wave when they were first published and just never caught onto the hype...

  • A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up
American Gods, by Neil Gaiman. I have no idea why.

  • A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten round to finishing yet
Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy - I've read the fifth book in the series but as the local library seems to have permanently misplaced the last few in this fantastic middle-grade/YA series I have yet to finish it.

  • A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read
The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins. I even have a copy of this sitting on my bookshelf. It's considered to be one of the first detective novels ever written. And I love me some Sherlock Holmes so....why???

  • A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read
And look at that, we're circling right back around to Harry Potter. And Twilight. And 50 Shades of Grey.

  • A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet 
True Blood - the popular HBO vampire series from a billion years ago, was adapted from the Sookie Stackhouse novels. I've only read one of the books, but it was a lot more light-hearted and fun than the dark and bloody live-action series.

  • A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. 


  1. Great tag. I've only read the first 5 (?) Harry Potter books but tbh, I don't particularly want to read them. I just read them because I felt like I had to. Although I love the films and the storyline I just don't have this need to read the books at all.

    I did enjoy the Twilight saga when it first came out. I was 14/15 at school and my and all my friends read it and it was perfect for that time in my life.


    1. I've actually never seen the films - I've been told they're okay though.

Etiquette Rules I (Personally) Find Pointless

Etiquette is a tricky realm in which to maneuver. Often, it varies from place to place and country to country. What's polite in one area of the world (slurping your noodles in Japan = 🖒) could be considered unfathomably rude elsewhere. So, let's approach this from a modern, millennial etiquette perspective, shall we?

Five Etiquette Rules I (Personally) Find Pointless

1.) Handwritten Thank You Notes- I try to be an environmentally friendly and conscious individual, truly I do. And I think that is perhaps why I have such a beef with "thank you" cards. Actually, any cards. Holiday cards, birthday cards, get-well-soon's all just paper. And it's all going to end up in the trash or recycling.

That tree died for something I glanced at for 30 seconds. If you truly want to thank me for something or wish me well, just email or text. Let me know in person next time you see me. If we are bosom buddies, you may even have permission to call and tell me.

2.) A…

What to Wear to an Interview: Creative Edition

Let me preface: It's been a while since I've been to a job interview and the last time I interviewed it was for an Admin Assistant position. How you dress for a formal office role can easily differ from how you might dress for a more creative role - like digital marketing or social media management.

On Friday, I have an interview in downtown St Paul for an entry-level 'marketing communications' job and I'm . . . for lack of a better word - scrambling.

I don't own a pair of simple black trousers or a dress suit. My one black blazer (as you will see) is a little finicky and hard to coordinate. And I do not have a single pair of weather appropriate shoes that would not look horrendously out of place in a corporate environment.

(With regards to weather appropriateness - we just got another 8 inches of snow today. Ewww.)

So, I decided to scour my wardrobe to see what I could put together that would not only be interview appropriate but also fit the role of a creative…
