Hey there.

Welcome to Quarter-Life Living, my outlet to help others bring style and sophistication to their twenty-something homes. Everyone deserves to love where they live, no matter the square footage.


Um.... Anyone else feel like they blinked and it was August? WHERE DID 2017 GO? Time flies when you have weekly presidential scandals I guess (cue the eye rolls).

If you're like me, then you are clinging to every last bit of summer that you possibly can. With only a few more weekends of blissful heat and sunshine remaining, it might finally be time to put my hostess hat on and invite people over for a grill out. In case I haven't complained about it enough, we do have a pretty tiny apartment for hosting, but thankfully our complex has a great patio and pool area to make up for it.

Here is the downfall:

I'm am terribly undomesticated.

In the same way that I can't keep a plant alive, I also can't cook outside of my [microscopic] range of go-to dishes to save my life. Thankfully, salads and sides are a slightly different story, but the only way I survive on main courses is by following a recipe to a t. If I mess around in any way and try to get fancy, I'll burn my kitchen down or, worse, poison my guests. Don't worry, Pinterest is my bible.

Looking to get your own summer soirée in the books? Here are some recipes and products to help make it the perfect end cap on the season!
