I GUESS I’M TRYING TINDER?

i’ve always been hesitant about online dating. i’ve always just pictured meeting and it being very awkward. but SO many people i know have been on tinder or okcupid and actually have gone on somewhat normal dates. (mixed with some pretty hilarious encounters as well) so i figured, hey why not at leeeeeast sign up and see what it’s all about, right? i’m single, i should try new things.

i must admit it’s pretty entertaining to sit on tinder with your friends and swipe left left left with commentary. and sometimes you even swipe RIGHT which is very exciting. (for those of you that don’t know, that means you think they are hot or cool or whatever.)

for the most part, it’s a lot of guys who send you creepy messages (although i did get one that said “is your name google, because you have everything i’m searchin for” which i thought was pretty funny.) a few dudes that take pictures with selfie sticks, try to act too cool in their profile, and do NOT know how to take a profile pic.

but who knows, maybe there’s hope? have you had any luck on it? i’d love to hear about it!

HI FROM NY

hi friends. i’m laying in my hotel bed in brooklyn after eating far too many meatballs here this evening. a very worthwhile food coma. i’m here just for a short trip to teach blogshop, but i wish i was staying longer because the weather is beautiful. finally i don’t have to wear summer clothes and deal with the LA heat.

also it’s officially fall and i’m feeling the changes already creeping in. i’m ready for exciting new projects, planning travel, and maybe even some cute boys if i’m lucky? one can wish. happy fall everyone. -bri

ps isn’t this picture of audrey great?

HI

hello everyone, how are you doing? i’ve been going through a pretty rough time in my personal life this week (this year has been one for the books!) but i’m trying to just stay positive and know that feelings like this always pass. no feeling is forever. my friend is trying to get me to go to spin workout class with her to let some anxiety out, which is slightly scary, but hey maybe i’ll give it a shot. i hate to be a downer over here for you guys! here’s to hoping for a relaxing weekend and brighter days ahead. happy friday, friends. -bri
