My name is Kiersten. I'm an engineer who loves to cook, knit, and watch trashy reality TV (Real Housewives, I'm looking at you). I love Lord of the Rings and A Song of Ice and Fire, both the books and movies/TV show, and I firmly believe that dark lipstick and a little mascara is all you need for a complete look. I like analyzing everything that put in front of me because it's how I've learned to understand the little bit that I think I know about the world.

Instead of doing New Year's resolutions, I like to give myself 30-day challenges to find what lifestyle changes suit me best. My blog is focused on taking control of your life and constantly challenging yourself to be better. Here, I talk about my successes in lifestyle changes as well as my utter failures (let's say I'm not becoming vegan any time soon) and just about anything else that I really want to talk about. Hopefully, there will be one thing that might help you here. Or at least something you can laugh at!
