Heyyyy, I'm Bailey, a creative 30-year-old who loves laughing, painting my nails, creating collages, writing, hiking, working out, taking photographs, thrifty shopping and concocting easy DIYs. I moved from Massachusetts to the West Coast in January 2012 and moved back home to the East Coast in August 2014.

I began blogging as a way to make sure my friends and family back east didn't forget that I existed ;)  But it's become my favorite way to showcase the nail polish looks I'm working on, my favorite photographs of beautiful Vancouver and Boston, the different ways I try to decorate my apartment, and how I balance my fondness for shopping with my cheap-at-heart mindset. Sometimes I even show you my attempts at creating healthy food in the kitchen, or the workouts/hikes I'm doing, or the music I'm listening to. 

If I curse or use CAPS LOCK or #HashtagTheShitOutOfThings… it's only because I want you to hear it the way I'd say it. And because I love you. 

No matter what I'm up to, I want to inspire YOU to try it too. Because more often than not… it's easier than it seems!

  1. Hi Bailey,
    Following you via the Blog Hop. :-) Thanks again for your comments on my blog.


  2. Hi,

    I've added a new feature so you can publish your blog posts on Urbanspoon yourself without having to wait for us to do it! Here's how it works:

    - Make sure you're signed into Urbanspoon.
    - Go to your Urbanspoon blog page (not your user profile): https://www.urbanspoon.com/br/14/10182/Vancouver/aka-Bailey.html
    - Click "Edit blog settings".
    - In the Pending Posts section, click "Edit and publish my pending posts".
    - Then, enter the "snippet" text, verify the date and URL, and press Publish.

    Please make sure that:
    - The URL should be the permalink to the blog post (not the blog home page, a category page, a post preview, or a service like feedproxy).
    - The snippet should be 2-3 sentences (quoted from your blog post) that gives an idea of what's in the post.
    - The snippet should NOT include bylines, dates, address info, captions, tags, HTML code, etc.

    Note: there may be a delay of 1-2 hours after you post on your blog until our system detects the post.

    We'll give you one week to do it yourself, then it'll go into our queue to publish.

    Thank you for all of your contributions, and let me know if you have any questions.

    Best regards,




Leave me some love!
