Sam is a marketing professional in the Philly suburbs. When she’s not writing or working, she’s probably watching Grey’s Anatomy (or Villanova basketball #gocats) or online shopping.

This summer has been amazing. I’ve spent a ton of time with two of my closest friends, Haley and Kasia. We’ve frolicked through the streets of Philadelphia, obsessed over Friday Night Lights, conspired together to have the Universe shower us with good vibes and bonded over mozzarella sticks discussing the trials and tribulations of being a single, 20-something working in the communication industry. (Kasia here: RT all that–thank goodness for good friends).

It’s been inspiring to be surrounded by strong, like-minded women who have similar goals and ambitions but also are down to have a damn good time while we’re young.

Links I Love: July

Hi there! I’m trying a new thing called Links I Love. The more I get into the blogging world, the more cool bloggers I meet. I absolutely love to see what other people are talking about, plus it’s always fun to support other writers like me. I’ve seen other bloggers do weekly/monthly link roundups so I wanted to give it a shot! Here are some links I’m loving this month, broken down by category. Check them out!

Likes & Favorites: The Second Half of Summer

I can hardly believe it’s almost mid-way through July. As soon as the 4th of July rolls around, I feel like I blink & summer is almost over. Good thing is, we have a month & a half left to soak up the sun and enjoy the easy-living summer has to offer. July has been a blast so far & I’m looking forward to the second half of summer. Here’s what I’ve been liking & favoriting.
