Gold Tape



Hello heroines! It’s been a quiet week, but sometimes that’s just how I like it: sinking back into my tried-and-true routines, reading 25 pages each morning and evening (at least!), perfecting my chocolate chip cookie recipe in our new-ish oven, and getting excited about next week’s Tea Party!


This sampling is brought to you by the Heroine Training in-house musician, Rorie [I wish!]. Her ethereal, storybook music is so fit for a heroine, and I’m obsessed with her new song, “Dawn”. You can follow her music on Spotify and find images that do her wondrous music justice on her Instagram @roriemusic.
