Hi, I’m Taylor. I’m an (almost) twenty-something college student in Philadelphia, studying the art of how to scam people business, and
I have a lot of feelings.
I’ve been a lover of writing ever since I can remember. English has always been one of my favorite subjects, and since coming to college I’ve missed it, having been too busy learning how to trick people into buying stuff the fundamentals of marketing and other business-related things.
Pinstripes&Lipgloss was born in April 2013 out of a desire for a way to creatively express myself and share my thoughts on things that are important to me.
“Pinstripes” comes from my future career in business, and represents my current life as a college student, a lifelong learner, a deep thinker, and a fan of men sporting business formal.
“Lipgloss” comes from my junior high years, where it was my favorite accessory, often to my detriment (say no to sparkles). It represents my love of fashion and doing things with flair and originality, as well as my less serious side.
I’m living right now where the two meet, at the strange intersection of originality and novelty and the demands of the real world. I blog about food, fashion, beauty, life as a college student, and life as a girl who has absolutely nothing figured out (yet).
Some things to know about me:
- I’m obsessed with Starbucks but I still don’t know how I feel about coffee.
- I fall down often, ungracefully, and without reason.
- I’m a closet drama queen and a not-so-closet diva.
- I’m sassy. Like, really sassy.
- When in doubt, I always order dessert.
When I’m not writing here or studying, you’ll find me:
Traveling the world with my best friend and love, eating (too much) great food, laughing over the small things, and pretending I know how to be an adult.
I’m so glad you’ve visited. Let’s be friends.
