Here I am!

What Danika Does Vector Triangles

First post on my first blog. What a task.

I’ve been preoccupied with the idea of becoming a blogger for about a month now. Basically, that looked like me googling things like “how to start a blog” and “how to make sure your blog isn’t a total failure”.

I read a bunch of articles on a bunch of well-established blogs and came to the conclusion that I’m just going to wing it because sometimes you just have to start. So, here I am! Winging it.

My current driving philosophy in pretty blue watercolor {dr. ph marten’s liquid watercolor in cobalt}

I’m Danika, I’m 19, and I do things. I live in California and I try to take full advantage of that by trying to go somewhere every weekend, as my homework load allows. I’m a total beach person and Santa Cruz is one of my favorite weekend locations. Stay tuned for California road trip guides and destination spotlights — I try to stay on the move!

This is me in front of McWay falls in Big Sur. I know, I know, it’s too pretty to be anything less than photoshopped. I promise it looks this good in real life, too.


I paint and I hand-letter and I’m hoping to be able to inspire you guys. I’ve been practicing my art skills for about five years now and can’t wait to start sharing! I also started an Etsy shop for my designs last year (link here) and I’d love to be able to share my experience with juggling mini-entrepreneurship, student life, and also having a real (but a lot less fun!) job.

I’m a full-time college student and part-time employee, which basically means I’m not on anyone’s list of top 10 richest chicks in the world. I really really like to shop which is an issue when money isn’t growing out of my ears. What that means is I like SALES! I hope to be able to put together some cheap & stylin’ finds for all my student sistas on a budget.

This romper was less than 10 dollars and I scored the bikini I’m wearing for over 50% off. Raise your hand if you love a good deal! (picture me with both my hands up because I super love deals)

So if you also like any of the things I mentioned above, let’s be friends! I think that everyone can learn from the things other people do. So maybe you’ll learn a little from me, I’ll learn a little from you, and then we can have a win-win super smart best friends party because we both learned something from each other.
