Guest Writer: Bethany Melvin The ridiculously talented photographer behind Bethany Melvin Photography gives us insight into an up-and-coming design trend. Visit her site here! This styled shoot features all things non-traditional. Our goal was to do everything opposite of tradition.

Ring in the New Year with Pizza

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Domino’s®. For 2019, my New Year’s resolution is to be more open and honest. So, I’m going to get ahead of the year and start right now. I am old!

Holiday Cookie & Wine Pairings with Line 39

Content for 21+ During the holiday season, gifts will be in abundance. And there are two gifts that never fail to deliver cheer… cookies and wine. Between the office soirée, auntie’s baking party, and the neighbor’s New Year’s Eve celebration, cookies and wine will be flowing.
