A Minnesota native living in Milwaukee, I’m a die-hard Midwestern gal living in the pursuit of a vibrant life. That means I’m hustlin’ hard while not taking life too seriously, staying active while eating as many French Fries as I darn well please, and traveling the world while staying loyal to my Midwestern roots.
Honeydew was born as my passion project to pull myself out of the Netflix-and-nap-every-night mentality. You can read about my decision to start a blog in my First Blog Post Ever and you can learn about the story behind the blog name in What’s in a Name?
My goal with the fashion portion of my blog is to show you realistic, everyday outfits that won’t break the bank. Hint: you definitely won’t see Gucci or Prada on my blog! My personal style is all about practicality and simplicity – If I can’t sit, bend over, or walk a couple minutes without feeling uncomfortable, yerrrrr out! In other words, I’ve gotten rid of practically all my stilletos.
Oh, and also my motto is “Life is short. Buy the Shoes.”
I truly believe that travel is one of the greatest privileges in life. I have hundreds of destinations, both domestic and international, on my bucket list. I can’t wait until I can check off all the continents and share my travels with you! But maybe I’ll leave Antarctica to the scientists and penguins…
Here’s a list of international destinations I’ve already checked off the list:
Bahamas, Canada, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis
China, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam
Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Scotland, Spain, United Kingdom
I’m a sucker for french fries, baby animals, and anything gold. Nuff said.
