I Can’t Fix You If You Don’t Want To Be Fixed

I Can’t Fix You If You Don’t Want To Be Fixed
Let’s be real here: I am a fixer. If I see someone with a problem, I immediately want to fix it and make them better. I’ve been like this for as long as I can remember. When I was younger, I would go for the “bad boy” in hopes of turning them into the “good […]

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do…

Nic’s Mad Hatter Birthday Tea Party

Nic’s Mad Hatter Birthday Tea Party
Welcome to my Kobe year, baby!  I turned 24 last week and this year all I wanted was to celebrate my amazing girls. I’ve also been missing London so I thought, why not recreate some of the best parts of tea time? Anyone that knows me knows that I dread my birthday every year, but […]

Odd Man Out

Odd Man Out
  Alright, I need to keep it real here and say that I don’t necessarily like everyone I meet — and everyone I meet doesn’t necessarily like me (but what’s not to like? I mean, come on..). But what happens when a close friend introduces you to one of their other close friends and you quickly find that […]
