  1. Bridging the gap between the digital expression of W&D and the physical manifestation of what we’ve built is the ultimate dream for me. And sometimes when you want to tackle a goal that lofty, the pressure to make something AMAZING right out of the gate can be debilitating. Throw your own personal style into the mix …

  2. The pure privilege of not waking up all-the-way politically until 2016 is not lost on me. Until about nine or ten months before last year’s election, I had the common political media habits of a young white person living in the city: I’d pay attention to the news leisurely; keep my finger loosely on the pulse …

  3. Rise and shine? More like rise and whine, amiright? If you’re not of the early bird species, I’m not here to convince you to become a morning person. There are things like circadian rhythms to consider with that! I am, however, here to convince you that there are ways we can all make the a.m. a …

  4. Fall is, in my opinion, the most wonderful time of year, especially here in the Upper Midwest. The leaves are changing, your coffee tastes like a pumpkin, and people are wearing stylish plaid capes – what could be better? The only downside is that fall goes by quick quick quick – it can be tough to …

  5. Do you ever feel as if you aren’t anything like your sign? Maybe you’re a docile Aries or a lighthearted Scorpio – either way, something about you just doesn’t seem to add up to your signs’ classic traits? You see, it’s not just your Sun sign (more on that in a bit) that matters in astrology – …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. That Christmas song got it all wrong: the most wonderful time of year is fall. Everyone knows that. But beyond hitting the pumpkin patches and apple orchards, wrapping yourself in blanket-like sweaters and eating your fair share of root vegetables, what else should you do during the fleeting fall? Here, some slightly-less-cliché autumn-time ideas for you. …

  8. WOOOOOOOOOOOO, BAAA-BY. So, I put off any and all writing of this article until I was all the way finished with Sweet Valley High: Double Love (dun dun dunnnnn) and, oh my God ya’ll, that place is twenty-seven flavors of messed up. I haven’t read this book since I was twelve, which, thank GOD I read …

  9. When it comes to seasons, fall is always one for the books. (Teehee — pun intended.) Curling up in that beloved oversized sweater with a mug full of warm, spicy (or spiked, no judgment!) cider in one hand and a page-turner in the other while both the temps and leaves are dropping outside… I mean, does it …

  10. BROUGHT TO YOU BY 23andme

    For most of my life, I was under the impression I was German and Norwegian. My mom lived in Germany for a year and my dad had visited in his early 20s to understand more about his German heritage. While I don’t remember meeting my great-grandparents, I knew their names, their stories, and their personalities. My …

  11. Look at her over there, sitting at the bar alone, reading the Sunday Times, sipping her second glass of Sancerre. What a woman. “Can I be her?!” you’re thinking. You can and you will, if I have anything to do with it. Whether you’re coupled up or not, a part of a close-knit pack of friends …

  12. Lana Del Rey’s “Lust For Life” has been out for a hot minute, but sometimes I like to just sit and hold songs for awhile before I can decide which ones I’m taking with me with me for the long haul. Kind of like how I wander around Madewell for 45 minutes carrying ten different sweaters …

    I need to start off this post by explaining just how hard it was to not write in Winnie’s “voice.” You know that voice, the one people use when providing their dog’s inner monologue or when you carry on a conversation with your dog throughout the day. Or maybe you don’t. If you couldn’t tell, I’m …
