sometimes i write for different corners of the internet. here’s a sampling of my work:

darling mantraDarling Magazine:

i am blessed to be a contributor for the Darling Magazine family. my first article was published on Darling online in december 2012 and was (praise the Lord) really well received. so they invited me to be a permanent contributor and i’ve been writing ever since.

in addition to the below-listed online articles, i was published in the print versions of their spring and fall 2013 issues. God opens the doors, you guys. i’m just lucky enough to get to walk through them.

miss A articles.*

*i am no longer contributing to miss A as of march 2013.

once upon a time i mentioned that i had a blog to a gal in my pure barre class (#shameless) and before i knew it i was offered a contributorship at Ask Miss A (there were a few more steps that transpired between “hey, i have a blog and i’m a really good (and humble) writer” to “why don’t you write articles for Miss A?” but i didn’t want to bore you with the details).

what’s Miss A, you say? well since you asked so nicely, i’ll tell you: is one of the largest and fastest growing online destinations for women. Miss A covers the intersection of charity and style in 21 major U.S. cities and offers informative content on a woman’s well-rounded lifestyle and interests. With a team of more than 30 editors and hundreds of writers, Miss A includes the latest and most relevant information on fashion, beauty, entertainment, food, family, city events and exclusive advice and recommendations for nearly one million unique visitors each year.

Founded by Andrea Rodgers in 2008, Miss A was originally inspired by the Washington, DC socialite’s online moniker “Miss A.” Miss A tosses aside the superficial and shallow to deliver sensibility and substance with style. Through authentic, informative, and witty editorial voices of writers in-the-know across the United States, Miss A informs, inspires, and entertains an audience of more than 95,000 unique visitors monthly. Miss A continues to grow organically by building a powerful online network of women.”

while my articles once only focused on happenings in my city (what up, america’s finest?), i slowly morphed my repertoire to include restaurant reviews and fashion advice, too.

foodie fun in america’s finest.
