The Brunch Review: Twisted Tail

HELLO THERE. This is way overdue. Also I haven’t blogged in a hot minute. I’m sorry, life is crazy, new job, holidays, etc. etc. I’m going to try to be better about writing once a week or every other week, but we’ll see how it goes haha ANYWAYS. Brunch review coming in hot–I actually went to the Twisted Tails years ago but just revisited it recently (it’s pretty close to my new apartment!) If you’re looking for a low-key brunch in a cute part of the city, Twisted Tail is for you.

15 Things I Learned when I was 25

“25 Things I learned when I was 25” sounds a loooot nicer but a list of 25 life lessons seems a bit excessive, so we’re going to stick with 15 ;) Hi there. I’m Kasia & I’ve just turned 26 (WILD). I can hardly believe it. Me? 26? This feels bizarre.

But here we are.

25 was definitely interesting. If I had to describe my “early twenties” (because I’m officially in my MID-twenties), it would be like this: 23 broke me down, 24 built me back up & 25 tested who I am. 25 was really rocky at parts & smooth sailing in others. Some new people came into my life, some other people left. There were lots of highs (a couple of lows); I made some changes (moved into a new apartment with a new roomie! started a new job!) but also focused on my foundation/all the things I’ve built up over the past 3 years. Overall, I liked 25. It was gritty. Raw at parts. Hard-going yet free-flowing. Plus, I think it was a really good set up for 26 & my mid-to-late-20’s. I finally feel settled into who I am and this whole adulthood thing, for the most part (FINALLY). It’s a nice feeling.

So here are some things I learned from this past year. Maybe you can relate, or maybe you think I’m full of sh*t haha Cheers to 26.

5 Things I’m Loving in My New Apartment

So I moved recently! Still in Philly but in a different part of the city (which I’m OBSESSED with). My roomie Danielle and I have been there a little over a month (crazy–time is going so quickly!) & it’s finally starting to feel settled/like “home.” If you’re anything like me, a move or big change always motivates me to purge things I don’t need anymore & buy pretty new things (Okay maybe I’m using moving as an excuse to splurge at Target, don’t @ me). It also made me reflect on things that I really liked about my old apartment & find things that could have worked better. I’ve gotten some really cool apartment/home decor things recently that I’ve been loooooving so I figured I’d share! Disclosure: you don’t have to move to re-do your space ;)
