new england coffee house charm

I always enjoy visiting the charming New England town of Exeter, New Hampshire. Small but brimming with history, Exeter never ceases to delight me in some way. Today, I visited D Squared Java and enjoyed a made-to-order pour over coffee and a vegan gluten free cookie. D Squared proved to be a quality coffee house with an endearing atmosphere.

prepping for the flea

I spent the day getting The Gibbson Girl ready for the flea market! This Sunday I’ll step out of my comfort zone to sell my vintage wares person-to-person at a local flea market. Wish me luck! (And if you have any tips, I’m all ears!).

equal pay day: what does it mean?

Equal Pay Day 2015 #100DaysofMiaPrima

April 14th is Equal Pay Day. I’m a few days late to the game, but this issue is too important to pass up.

A not-so-fun fact: April 14th was chosen as Equal Pay Day because it represents how far into 2015 that women must work to to earn as much as men did in 2014. That’s 104 days, folks.

In case you missed it, here it is again: women have to work 469 days to earn the same amount of income men make in 365 days.

In other words, women only make 78 cents to every dollar men make. And women of color make even less.

And one more time to really drive it home: Over her career lifetime, a woman will make on average nearly a half a million dollars less than her male counterparts. A half a million dollars less.

Learn more about the gender wage gap here.

And here.

Now that you know, spread the word!

Gender Wage Gap

Cheers (for #EqualPayNow)!

vintage finds at new england’s todd farm flea

Today was Todd Farm Flea Market’s (of Rowley, Massachusetts) opening day, and with the sunny weather, the vendors were a plenty as were the customers. I had no intention of buying anything (I just packed up my Pittsburgh apartment, after all), but of course I left with a few good finds, including a U.S. Army gas mask bag, an old, fading graphite print, and feminist-worthy pin.

The rubber lining of this gas mask bag will make it a perfect camera bag.

boston’s north end

Boston’s North End is absolutely one of my favorite spots to visit while I’m back visiting New Hampshire. The Italian neighborhood was buzzing with people today thanks to beautiful weather and (I’m guessing) delicious canolis. My mom and I enjoyed a pasta lunch followed by pastries from Mike’s Pastry— the absolute best shop for canolis outside of Sicily. To top it off, a trip to the North End always includes a stroll along the Freedom Trail.
