New York Fashion Week F/W 2014: Nanette Lepore & Cynthia Rowley

As quickly as I can finish a bag of Skittles (approximately 10.9 seconds, give or take), NYFW Fall 2014 came to an end. The week finished with a bang as Nanette Lepore and Cynthia Rowley showed their collections for this coming fall. Nanette Lepore, as popular as she is, is always one of the ...

New York Fashion Week F/W 2014: Trina Turk

Aaaaaaand we’re back! On the West Coast, that is. After an insane week of early wake-up calls and late nights at at the office (not to mention many red velvet cupcakes later), New York Fashion Week is officially over! I caught a 7:00 am flight out of wintry NYC this morning just before ...

New York Fashion Week F/W 2014: Back to the Big Apple

It’s that time again. That dose of crazy that comes in pretty packaging, like gorgeous models and stunning clothing (and occasionally some very fashionista pups). It’s New York Fashion Week, my people. So forgive my absence for the next week or so, I’ll be working into the wee ...

New York Fashion Week S/S 2014: The End of NYFW & Back to PDX

Accompanied by Twinkies and a good friend, New York Fashion Week finally came to an end on September 11th. In the midst of all the craziness and clothes of fashion week, I was reminded that not only is September 11th a day of reflection on the past, but a day of hope for the future. […]

Thursday Things #9: New Years Edition

Holding my last math assignment of all time, in my Stats class freshman year. Oh, youth. Stepping foot onto University of Portland’s campus for the first time as a freshman in August of 2010, I could not even begin to imagine what the year 2014 would look like. Actually, I think I refused ...

101 in 1001

NOTE: I have officially finished my first 101 things in 1001 days, woop! See below for everything I did (and didn’t) do. As somewhat of a list-fanatic, even though I love making them, the actual process of completing them is what stumps me. From book lists to homework lists to lists about ...

a look back: 22

When counting down the days until my 21st birthday, I had the most ridiculous high-hopes. I thought fo SHO that the big 2-1 was going to be my best birthday yet, and that the year ahead had nothing but crazy awesome memories waiting for me (read: tons of candy, Dr. Pepper, hanging out with ...

morning with my MANhattan: a photo diary

A very specific skill set I own is I’m able to rationalize almost anything. Bag of candy for dinner? It’s delicious and nutritious (not really)! Chipotle for the fourth day in a row? It’s cheaper than going to the school’s cafeteria every day! Obviously, 99.9% of my ...

Julia Jean Kennedy

Preferring basketball over barbies, travel over tutus, and almost any chatter that could somehow relate back to Harry Potter, Julia is always game for a beer and an impromptu booking of a ticket to a game, country, or even the latest Fast and Furious movie. Here, find random thoughts, tidbits about trips, and occasionally Seattle Seahawks propaganda.
