This Week's Top 10


1. Happy Friday!! This was my first official week in my apartment and I am so happy to be here. I'm going to dedicate this weekend to furniture/decor shopping and really looking forward to it. The cherry blossoms have bloomed throughout the city and they've made my daily walks so enjoyable. 


2. I published the April mood board late last night because I just didn't want to wait any longer! In case you missed it, you can find it here.


3. These are the shorts I was wearing on my IG story yesterday- got so many replies to that story and had to share them! They're only $30, come in a ton of colors, and so cute + comfy!

April Moodboard (Desktop Wallpaper!)


Hello!! Happy April!! How are we already a quarter of the way through 2021? I am in my new apartment in NYC and so happy to be here. Can't wait to share everything with you all soon as I get more settled.  I switched it up a little with the mood board this month and I hope you love this one as much as I do, even though it's over a week late... I'm so sorry!!

This Week's Top 10


1. Happy Friday!!! This week felt a bit long but at least it's Friday now and we made it through! Can't believe in just one week from today I am moving to NYC!


2. I am currently running a giveaway on my IG! It goes until Sunday and you can enter to win a Rudder USA Sweatshirt + Hat, and a Paul Landry long sleeve tee + duffel bag! Everything is so cute, so go check out the post on my account here to enter. 


3. This week I applied for the Sephora Squad! If you've been following me for a while or just enjoy keeping up with me, it would mean the world if you would leave a testimonial for me here. I mentioned this in my IG stories already, but in my application, I talked about how I’ve been doing this for 9 years and while my community is small, so many of you are so loyal and truly have become friends of mine over the years, so I think being a part of the Sephora Squad would be an amazing way for me to grow this platform and in turn, produce better content for all of you! 

10 Days


In just 10 days, I am leaving Milwaukee to drive to NYC. 2012 me would be screaming “I’m moving to NYC!!” but that is just not my vibe right now. The difference between 2012 and 2021 Fran is… a lot of things. Warning you now-- this post is pretty dramatic (lol, whooooo is surprised). But just let me have my moment-- you only move away from home on your own once!!!

1. Happy Friday!!! The weather this week has been SO sunny and warm and I am thriving. I got out on at least two walks a day all week long and it was glorious.


2. Thank you all for all of your love this week on my big announcement!! Can't believe it's happening in TWO WEEKS! Full blog post with the Q&A here


3. Supermoon Bakehouse is easily one of the places I am most excited to visit when I move. Like, a Saturday morning walk to get one of those CRUFFINS? Talk about living my truuuth!!
