Another blog? Another group of millennial women. We know. We aren’t original.
At least not in that aspect. But we are three best friends, brought together by ex-boyfriends (the only good thing that came out of those relationships), who stayed together through thick and thin. For 8 years, we have worked through long-distance, literally zero distance, heartbreaks, bad jobs, crazy dog choices and so much more.
As we get older, we sometimes wish the person we are now would’ve been around when the person we were 5 years ago needed advice. We hope that if you are where we were, in any similar situations, that maybe we can help. Or we can at least be here to listen! And then we can give advice. Because our advice is great… even if we don’t listen to it ourselves half the time. But what fun is it always being right?
I’m Abby! I’m 23 and reside in good ole’ Memphis, Tennessee. I am a marketing coordinator at a chemicals company. Just spending my days making chemicals sound sexy. I moved from Richmond, Virginia in June 2017, after graduating from VCU.
I was the single one of this trio, supposedly here to provide all the gory details of modern dating, but I wasn’t doing a good enough job so Lauren joined me. The thing about boys though, is they seem to take up a lot of time and thought and provide nothing in return.
So, instead, I like to focus my time on finding and sharing stories of empowered women all while working towards my personal goals and development that I then get to share with you!
I would also be a terrible dog mom if I did not mention, I have an adorable Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie) pup named Mila.
Hi, I’m Lauren! I’m 25 and currently finding shelter in Richmond, Virginia. I am working as a pharmaceutical development chemist, trying hard to make safety goggles a “look.” I graduated from the University of Virginia in 2016 (go Hoos!), and after working for a period at an animal clinic, I decided to pursue my inner science nerd.
Now I’m settling into my mid-20’s with as much grace as I can muster. I have a lot of crazy stories and experiences that hopefully you all will find helpful as well. I’ve learned a lot and have a long way to go. I have my rottie-mix Basil to accompany me along the way. He’s usually pretty wise.
Greetings friends, my name is Jordan. I am a 24-year-old woman who has found herself living in New York City with her handsome boyfriend and even more good-looking labradoodle named Nora. I graduated from VCU with a bachelors in Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s studies. Now don’t be like my grandparents and ask me “What can you actually do with that degree?”
Naturally, I was meant to start a blog with two fabulous ladies. I’m currently working as a bartender in Manhattan as well as an employee at Apple, both of which I adore greatly (#hustleandflow). I’m continually navigating through this crazy life and picking up tips along the way. Hopefully some of which will resonate with you, or at least entertain you in the slightest.
