Would you ever get a housecleaner? When my boyfriend suggested we get one to save us time, energy, and argument, I immediately shut down the idea. Months later, I decided to test one out to see what it'd be like...
A few months ago, my aunts, sister, and I were sitting around chatting about the domestic life when our oldest aunt revealed that she regularly pays someone to come and clean her house. I thought that was interesting considering how much we pride ourselves in maintaining a neat household and ...

Will you be checking out the annual Open House New York Weekend this Saturday and Sunday? So many great sites on the list, but some require advance registration and that's open until tomorrow!
In a few days I'll be heading out of town for a bit of camping, which I'm totally looking forward to, but it means I'll be missing this year's Open House New York Weekend. (Booo!) The annual event is a chance for New Yorkers to peek into some cool spaces, including some that are ordinarily ...

Have you ever been to Chicago? A. and I visited the Windy City earlier this year and took a self-guided tour to learn about the city's architecture and made sure to stop for some good eats along the way. Here are a few of the spots we loved (including a popular one that's shutting down next month!):
{Let me interrupt my Burning Man talk to tell you a bit about our Chicago trip from long ago. A friend of mine just flew out there and it reminded me that I'd yet to hit publish on this post! So while it's all hot outside, let me chat a bit about our wintry trip to the Windy City - especially ...

Thoughts on impermanence, learning to be okay with things coming and going, and returning to Burning Man. Do you also have a hard time letting go of things? Because I'm thinking I like to cling to moments way too much and have a hard time turning the page.
So I'm back from Burning Man, already deep into my regular schedule (blah!) of work work work, and am still trying to sift through all the thoughts I've collected on this trip. A part of me feels overwhelmed by trying to make sense of the sensory overload I've just experienced as well as guilt ...

A recap of this year's National Stationery Show. Click on for loads of pictures and links to some beautiful designs.
I attended the National Stationery Show last month and while I usually walk the trade show on a single day, I ended up going to the Javits Center three times this year. After the first day I was so thrilled to see familiar faces and make connections with new exhibitors that I just needed to keep ...

Looking for creative ideas to decorate your home? Then take a peek at the DIY art blitz that occurred in our apartment this month.
First, I wanted to create a photo collage wall in our foyer to showcase photos from our travels and of our families. That IKEA saleslady might have looked at me crazy as I laid out all those frames across their displays to envision what the wall could look like, but it was worth it to have a ...

Heading out camping for the weekend and this little trip has reminded me of how much I would love to own a pretty teepee. Would you ever get one? Here are a few that I'm drooling over! #homedecor #tent #teepee #camping
Today A. and I are heading out on a camping trip with some of my friends. We'll be "roughing it" in Delaware and enjoying a weekend of gabbing, hiking, stargazing, and eating way too much grilled meat. I sure hope we have absolutely no reception out there so we can forget the rest of the world ...

I started meditating regularly and attending a local yoga studio and I am loving the effects it's been having on my anxious monkey mind. Do you meditate or practice yoga? For how long? How has it been making you feel? #meditation   #yoga   #nyc   #washingtonheights  
Fall has already been with us for about two weeks now and I. Am. In. Love. Autumn has been my favorite season ever since spring started attacking my senses long ago. There's just something wonderful about the chilly air that makes you want to cozy up under a blanket, jacket weather, boots, ...

I used to for a few months and it was nice but I can't say I miss it terribly now.

Decompressing after Burning Man and easing back into the Default World. Unfortunately, settling in was much too easy and quick this time around...
Part of the post Burning Man ritual is to decompress once you've re-entered the Default World, also known as real life. As hard as I tried to avoid taking my phone off airplane mode on the 10 hour drive back to Los Angeles from Nevada, I eventually relented and was soon scrolling through some 75 ...

It's been a fun and busy summer, but I'm about to get my much-needed break! What's on your plate these days?
It's a wonder that I've been able to maintain a relationship for 4+ years because it seems that I don't take too well to commitments. Among the new habits I've tried to take on this year alone and failed to permanently incorporate into my life are: Yoga. It was beautiful while it lasted.

Story
Tagline
A magazine writer/ blogger and stationery designer forever pounding the pavements of NYC.
Introduction
Hi, I'm Dorkys! I'm a NYC-based magazine writer who dreams of someday living abroad and pursuing every creative endeavor I've ever wanted. I get giddy over pretty paper art, can't handle scary movies and revert to my shy, awkward teen years whenever I find myself in room full of strangers. Moments alone in my apartment usually result in full-on solo karaoke/dance fests. I also tend to get very sarcastic in person (some say it's a defense mechanism, I say so what), but for every dose of tart, there's usually a nice helping of sweet to follow.
