Moving On

Cate Mezyk - January 11, 2016

Last week, I talked about how I had done something I regretted, and about how difficult it can be to forgive yourself for the mistakes you make. And then I got the sweetest voicemail, from a friend I haven’t talked to in years. She reminded me about the things I’ve done right over the years, and the mistakes I haven’t made. And it was just …

I’m So Holy

Cate Mezyk - April 27, 2015

If you’ve seen me in person lately, you’ve probably been wondering why I’ve been wearing my glasses non-stop for the past month. Turns out, I’m holy. For the last month, I’ve had irritated eyes, and at one point, the vision in my left eye began to blur. Don’t ever Google why you might have blurred vision, by the way. Google will tell you that you’re …

Huge Holiday Giveaway!

Cate Mezyk - November 17, 2014

I have never been a Black Friday shopper. Honestly, I spent too many years working the retail end of this day to get excited about actually shopping it. I have lots of friends who swear that it is jolly good fun wrestle with others at midnight for a stack of sweaters or a big screen tv… but I have always had a hard time believing …

So Cute

Cate Mezyk - May 9, 2013

Do you ever wear something and makes you feel a little like a different person? That’s how I feel when I wear my Northernly hair band (which I can’t stop wearing, by the way!). It works with my hair up or down, and is the perfection solution to my lazy girl days, when I don’t feel like bothering with my mane, but still want to …
