New 3 Part Mini-Series // Organizing Your: Digital World

Hello friends! I know that I am on a real roll here with creating new series, so I figured I should toss one more in the mix. This new series is called “Clean Out Your ____” and is a three part series on how to declutter various aspects of your lives and minds in order to have a more organized life. I have mentioned previously that things have been borderline insane for us these last few months. We moved across the country, started new jobs, went to ACL, Washington DC and did a cross country road trip. Oh not to mention, we bought…

Change One Thing // Show the Bees Some Love

Image via Hello friends and happy Friyay!!! Whoo-hoo we made it (why is it that short work weeks sometimes feel the longest?)! This week has been absolutely nuts for me, but equally awesome! I got to participate in a letter writing campaign for Planned Parenthood, a tree planting with Keep Austin Beautiful, and I got to do some awesome environmental grant research for the National Wildlife Federation. Plus we have so many exciting things happening right here at Something Swell Media, but we will get to those later (seeecretsss *insert winky face emoji here*). Anyways, today we are talking about…

I could not be more thrilled/nervous/excited to inform you…

Currently Digging // February Edition

Hello everyone! Today we are dipping back into our newest series “Currently Digging” after a brief hiatus. With so much going on these last few months, the only thing I have been “digging” is sleep when I get a chance to partake in it, and red wine. Now that we are really getting our routine back-in-order and getting our brains in the right place, I am excited to say that we are starting to explore new things again. It feels ah-mazing. We have been exploring new restaurants, TV shows, movies, books, all kinds of adventures to keep ourselves up to…

“Don’t Agonize, Organize”

Image via Hello friends and welcome to the end of one of the darkest weeks in American history. I know I was not the only one who spent all of Tuesday night/Wednesday morning tossing and turning in gut-wrenching agony. I know I am not the only one who found our country’s decision to elect a xenophobic, islamophobic, misogynist, racist, sex offending demagogue into the most powerful position in the world to be both horrifying and shameful. I know I was not the only one who has been so nauseated that I literally puked out of fear for the safety of our islamic,…
