About Me

Hey I'm Hillary!

This blog started way back in the summer of 2010, but you won't find any of those posts here anymore because I deleted them all when I decided to retry blogging in the summer of 2013. What made me want to start back at this little hobby? The pretty answer is "I wanted a creative outlet where I could express myself daily through my passion of writing." The honest answer is I was little bit depressed and feeling very lost in life. 

You see I'd just graduated with a BA in journalism from Ole Miss and had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do. For the past 4 years my life had completely revolved around my sorority and being a college student and now that I had neither of those to fall back on I felt like I had no purpose. I had always been defined by being a good student, but suddenly that meant nothing anymore. The countless jobs I was applying for and subsequently being denied didn't care one bit that I'd managed to maintain a solid GPA while also doubling the size of my sorority as President. So I decided to try the only other thing I felt remotely good at in an effort to stop feeling like a failure and put a spark back in my life by filling the void I'd gained on graduation day.

That's a long way of saying I blog about my life as a 20something. It's not always glamourous, but it's real. What you won't find here are pictures of me wearing designer labels or showcasing ornately furnished rooms. What you will find is a mixture of my random thoughts, wish lists, attempts at Pinterest recipes, and maybe even a playlist or two. Oh and of course about my absolute love for my home state of Mississippi and how much I miss being in college.

Looking for a good place to start? I recommend this post listing a few of my favorite posts or this one explaining the name behind my blog. 

I hope you'll stick around and read along as I blog my way through life.

  1. Hi! I stopped by from Sami's link-up. I saw the word "Mississippi," and HAD to click on over. I live in MS too and love Ole Miss! I love finding Mississippi/Memphis folks in blogland!!

  2. Hi Hill!

    I wanted to let you know that I've nominated you for a Liebster Award! I'm sure you've heard of it, but if you haven't, it's an award passed between new(ish) bloggers to recognize who we thing are doing a great job (and to try and help each other grow!). You can read more about it on my blog:
    If you have already received a Liebster or would rather not participate, that's totally ok! Participation is not required, but I wanted to recognize your blog, because I think you're doing fabulous things over here!

    Have a great day!

  3. I love Ole Miss! My brother is currently a senior there, and while I love gamedays in Tuscaloosa, there is something about tailgating in the Grove that is unlike any other experience. I'll actually be there in a couple of weeks for the Alabama v Ole Miss game. What sorority were you in?

  4. Hi Hill! My name is Cameron Von St. James and I had a quick question for you! I was wondering if you could email me at your earliest convenience at cvonstjames AT gmail DOT com :-) I greatly appreciate your time!!

  5. Hi! I found your blog through another one and noticed you are from Mississippi! My husband and I are thinking of moving there in a few years and I was wondering where you live and if you had any thoughts on the gulf coast area?? I'd really appreciate it!! webers498 at gmail.com thanks!!

  6. Hey, I just wanted to say I just recently started following your blog (I found it on another blog when I was creeping for more to read) & I really love it! I recently just started blogging but I was following three before that. I really wanted to find some others to follow that I could really relate to that were more along my lines of common interests & styles of blogging. You and your posts are so down to Earth and relatable. I really enjoy them!


I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
