Hey trnd setters, Some days I’m not really up to dressing in restrictive clothing. I mean sometimes crop tops and low cut tops aren’t as comfy as I’d like to feel. I kept this look simple and comfy while also keeping a bit of an edgier style. This ribbed tee is from Nordstrom Rack and […]

Hey trnd setters, For the longest time I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect black denim skirt. When I finally found one, I could not wait to put an outfit together. Since it’s distressed and black it definitely inspired me to go with an edgier look. Here’s what I ended up putting together! Let’s […]

The Virtual Disciple

“Ah,um, good morning Lisa,” said Pete awkwardly, the modest majesty of the angel before him always made him feel slightly awkward. Lisa giggled. “And a very ah, um, good morning to you too Pete,” she said in gentle, affectionate mockery. “When you’ve finished?” she added as the young man stood before her in the lecture […]

Hey trnd setters, One huge trend this summer has been sets. In the boutique I work in we have almost every rack covered in different sets for the summer. This look highlights one adorable set I found which I am so obsessed with. This adorable yellow floral set is from Blush Boutique and speaks entirely […]

Travels With The Bearded Man

Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy – your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself. – Annie Leibovitz, American Photographer Sunk deep in the woods near the shores of Lake Bowman, I traced my route to Yellowstone, then further […]

Hey trnd setters, So this last look is for those who don’t have (or need) any plans this Fourth. Most years, my sister and I stay in, make pizzas, and watch fireworks in our neighborhood (and embarrassingly, on TV). But hey, who says you can’t still look fab and have a great time! Here I’m […]

My name is Eva Wall. I’m Irish, from Dublin, and have just finished a Masters in American literature. Five years of studying literature has apparently resulted in a severe case of Stockholm syndrome, and so I’m starting this blog as a kind of log of my thoughts on the books I read, which I think […]

Evil Squirrel's Nest

The Dog Days are upon us, and so is another exciting week.  Yep, it’s time to woof it up for another Monday!  That’s the day The Nest digs up another lost bone out of that resealable pouch full of expired doggie treats we like to call the Dusty Vinyl Archive!  The bitch… I mean, DJ […]

Hey trnd setters, One thing America does best is barbecue. And on the Fourth, it’s a tradition for many. Here’s a look you’d catch me wearing to a Fourth of July BBQ! This awesome top is from Mango and I love how the checkered pattern resembles that of a picnic table. It’s a perfect summer […]

The Pilgrimage

…is a question that has been asked in the OSFGroups. Here’s how I answer: The Bible’s a really old book, originally written in two different languages, neither of which exist in those ancient forms anymore…which means that it has to be translated for everybody. In fact, it has been translated into a huge number of world […]

March 22, 2018 We gathered on a rainy afternoon in March and I presented them with a story. “What if,” I asked, “you knew that there was buried treasure here on campus?” They looked at each other, nine students and two staff members chosen for this adventure because of their wild creativity and willingness to […]

Girl Seeking Peanut Butter

You know what really used to get me off? Lending books. If I read something that I appreciated or thought was beautiful, I wanted the people I cared about experience it too. Immediately! Makes sense, right? I gave people–be it lovely best friend or emotionally damaged ex-boyfriend–my favorite books, hoping that they might be moved […]

Sometimes You Win, Sometimes You Muse

Ever been to a place that you feel doesn’t get enough credit? For me, that’s Kansas City, MO. So far, I’ve visited twice and each time I fall even more in love with it. I’ve had the opportunity to be introduced to Kansas City through work travel and experienced it in two seasons now; the […]

The Reluctant Chef

“Thank you for the inspiration, the entertainment, the laughs, the tears, the ten minutes you spent with a fan, and the affirmation that what I have chosen to do with my life is important, and matters.” So, some thoughts on Bourdain day… in 2013, I had the opportunity to see Anthony Bourdain, and Zamir Gotta […]

Through the field of psychology, we learn how to understand people – a shortened statement often used to describe the purpose of our degree. We learn to empathize with pain of the homeless, the anger of the drunken man, the internalized shame many, to give help over judge the recovering drug addict and to recommend […]
