    #30before30: research your fertility (whether you want a family or just furbabies)

    I’ve been pretty AWOL from the blog lately…I’ve had some personal stuff going on, and if you follow me on Instagram then you’ll know that I lost one of my kitties rather suddenly this week. I’ll be posting more about that later, but in the meantime, I wanted to get my weekly #30before30 post up, since I’ve been struggling with the series all month. (Indeed, with most of the January posts I’d intended to publish!)

    I really wasn’t sure how to title this week’s post. It’s a subject that I think all women find touchy, no matter their age or their personal choice. I’m talking about the delicate choice of whether or not to have kids; if so, when and how; and the myriad other decisions that come with it.

    Music Monday: Somewhere Only We Know

    This is another rare cover that I actually like much more than the original (from Keane). If this song sounds familiar, it’s probably because you heard it on TV over the holidays in a Samsung advert, which is also how I found it. Go check out Renee’s YouTube channel, she’s hugely talented and deserves more recognition! She has some lovely original songs and amazing ukulele/guitar covers as well.

    #30before30: get smart about money

    #30before30: get smart about money

    Moola, dough, dinero, mammon—whatever you call it, money is a hot topic. Getting my sh*t together financially is definitely at the top of my list of “adulting” things that I wish I’d put more energy into in my twenties!

    Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t do terrible, but there are a lot of thing I only learned later on that would have been much easier if I had known/practiced them earlier! Some of these things only came up for me once I decided I wanted to buy a house in 2017, and trust me, sitting in a realtor’s office looking at paperwork for your dream home is not the place to first realize you need cash assets and a good credit score to make it all come together.

    In no particular order, here are ten tips to help you get smart about money.
