Ah, I can't believe May is almost over! That means I'm inching closer and closer to the end of summer, which means- LA! Can't wait. Can it be September already, please?! The end of May also means that I get to share with you my featured sponsor of the month, fabulous blogging lady, Sarah & her blog, Marvelous Darling! I love her & her blog, so check it while I wreck it, yo.
I started my blog in the fall of 2011, but didn't get serious about it until January of 2012. I decided early in the year that I wanted to shift the focus of my blog to a twenty-something sex-positive lifestyle, because I felt that the blogosphere was missing many perspectives specifically like that.
My parents are, maybe oddly, my greatest inspiration. Whatever goals I've had, they've always supported me 100%. My parents even tell people proudly about my blog, and about my job in adult retail. They're just happy that I'm so determined to pursue my dreams, even if they are a little unusual!
Favorite summer activity?
Is ice cream a summer activity? Because I'm like Robin from How I Met Your Mother, and I'll eat ice cream all year 'round, but I'm particularly digging it when the weather is over 80 degrees. I actually wrangle my boyfriend into going out for ice cream with me at least once a week. I may or may not have a mental hierarchy of every ice cream joint in the city.
It's time for some music math! I love Tegan & Sara, and I'm less well-versed in Frightened Rabbit but love their sound, and if those two groups had a baby it would sound like... Heathers! Seriously, check all three of them out.
Best piece of advice anyone ever gave you?
When I went to summer camp during my super dorky, less than socially adept days, my counselor told me that Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." I wish I could find her and thank her for that.
