    Top Tips For A Good Night’s Sleep

    I am a sleeping machine – I function at my best when I have at least eight hours of sleep. If I can sneak an extra hour or hour and a half more in, I would. Usually, I’ll start to wind down around 9:00 PM, with the hopes of falling asleep by 9:30–10:00. I wake up between 6-6:30 AM, but some mornings I sleep in a little later, not getting out of bed until 7:00 AM (something that I’m drastically trying to change, #sunrises right?).

    Let’s Do The Awkward Small Talk

    I guess that it’s only fitting that I write my first blog post on why I’m even blogging in the first place! So let’s start out by getting to know each other—my name is Emily, I’m 22 years old + live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I was born on the first day of spring + was once told that life progresses in seasons. So it’s only fitting that I was born on the first day of the season that’s supposed to renew and regrow our earth. I’m a Pisces, an ENFJ—shoutout to all of my ENFJ friends (figure out your personality type: here) + a starving creative looking for an outlet.…
