Happy National Best Friends Day!

I freaking love my friends. My friends are basically my soulmates. They’re the people who make me laugh, the ones who let me cry, the ones who will drop everything to help me, and the ones who support me through every inspiring, impulsive, or downright bad idea. I’ve been so

Detroit Summer Bucket List

So many of my friends come to me with questions about what to do in the city, and there’s nothing I love more than obsessing over Detroit. After taking trips to Arizona and Minnesota this month, I love being home in my fave city even more. Exploring other places is

Ain’t Nothing but a Quarter Life Crisis

Today, I turn 25. Lol wow, just typing that is sending my anxiety through the roof. Not gonna lie, this has been the first birthday ever that I didn’t want to come. I love my birthday – attention on me?! Yes, please! But, within the past month, I’ve been doing

As much as I hate the winter cold, I love the history we have here in Michigan. We’re proud of our state and our country, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. From the fort on Mackinac Island to the many state parks, we love to stay authentic and

As I’m typing this, my crotch still hurts from spending 60 minutes on a stationary bike with no seat cover.  It seems that cycling is the latest workout fad, and since I tried barre after it started getting popular, I decided I’d try cycling, too. My little sister has been

As Told By Bri

Sometimes (read: often), I’m so embarrassed by myself and the things I do. For example, while listening to a One Direction song the other day, I realized I could pinpoint which boy was singing which part… at age 24. And that’s just the beginning. The other day at work, I
