i’m megan—a fashion, beauty, and lifestyle blogger.
i grew up in seattle, washington with my mom, dad, brother, and our dachshund. i have a serious sweet tooth and try to offset my donut and ice cream consumption with frequent trail and/or beach walks. i love the outdoors! i studied psychology and english in college, and upon graduating, i aspired to have a creative outlet. i began diary of this girl in 2011 as an online diary—my corner of the internet to document outfits, food, travel, and daily happenings. (my camera is never far from sight, nor is a tube of red lipstick.)
in 2016, i left my job of four years—a montessori preschool teacher—to join the corporate workforce. i’m employed by a financial services company. i knew nothing about the industry but have learned a great deal. in addition to working in new accounts, i support our communications lead by editing advisor and client-facing documents. and of course, in my free time, i enjoy creating content here!
i love putting together outfits for myself and others. budget-friendly fashion is the name of my game, and i strive to find affordable pieces at local boutiques, thrift stores, and consignment shops. follow along for beauty and style tips, fashion mishaps (they’re real), and other day-to-day adventures!
