Latest Musings

Hi, Friends!!

I’m back from my hiatus!!  Well, my blogging hiatus.  I’ve not yet taken a break from academics (though, really, can anyone ever REALLY take a break in academia?!), but rather worked quite hard on some grants, papers, and even explored some new job opportunities!  More to come on that. 😉

For now, I have some super exciting things to report!

  1. I’ve agreed to two exciting sponsorships for blog posts that will go live on my blog Thursday, Feb. 27th, and then again the first week in March.  Stay tuned for those!  I wanted to make you – my readers – aware that, although I am getting paid for these posts, and though there will – hopefully – be more paid posts in the future, I am only agreeing to work campaigns which align well with either academics (public health specifically) and/or fashion.  So…fear not!  The topics will be things you will want to hear about!  Or so I hope, haha!
  2. A super exciting collaboration with a fantastic jewelry company is in the works!!  I’ve already styled a couple of their pieces on Instagram, but will soon be able to offer you discount just for you…my readers!!  Stay tuned for that as well!  Also, remember that I post daily #ootd’s (translation: Outfit Of The Day, ‘ootd’), so you’ll get daily styling ideas for those days when you’re feeling uninspired!
  3. I have finally established a little bit of a following on Twitter, but it’s a bit lonely out in there in Twitterverse.  Do you tweet?!  If so, check out my account!  Let’s tweet together!
  4. Last, but not least, I have not forgotten about you – the reader – and your needs…your SHOPPING NEEDS!!!  As such, I have a tidbit of info to leave you with today!  C. Wonder is having a flash sale…up to 75% off on some items!!  Here are some of my picks:

Cute, right?!  But that’s not it!!!  As a final token of gratitude for your patience as I mused about staying ‘chic in academia’, I am offering one lucky reader a $15 voucher/coupon to Banana Republic!  The coupon can be used online or in-store, for your shopping pleasure and convenience. 😉  Just leave a comment below and the winner will be announced on my Instagram account on Friday, February 28th.  Email me at if you don’t have an Instagram account to check the announcement (seriously though, get an Instagram account and follow me!  It’s fun!!).

Stay chic! 💋

    I blame you for my sleepless night, Chic!!! I combed through every item in C Wonder’s flash sale, frantically purchased my soon-to-be new true loves (the leopard pumps and a belt) THEN spent hours looking for the perfect funky-yet-fab jeans to pair with the pumps!

    “Black-on-black leopard J Brand? Lace-print tuxedo jeans? Ooh! Maybe I should get these plaid jeans…wait they don’t match. Stay on task!” Sigh. I am now consuming copious amounts of caffeine to make up for the shopping frenzy-induced sleeplessness. 🙂

    Against my better judgment, I still implore you to keep the posts coming!

    It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button!
    I’d certainly donate to this brilliant blog! I guess
    for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.

    I look forward to brand new updates and will share this site
    with my Facebook group. Talk soon!
