Dani Dearest is an empowering community dedicated to helping college and millennial women (like you!) succeed in their lives and studies. This is your one-stop go-to place to find everything that a millennial woman needs.

Who am I?


I’m Dani, a 23 year old recent college graduate, and I started Dani Dearest 5 years ago to share my voice with the world.

California born and raised. Feminist. Writer (duh). Part-time theatrical stage manager. Full-time Disney lover. TV show addict. Social media and marketing superhero (or at least, that’s what my boss calls me). Washi tape collector. Organizer. Theme park goer.

I’ve always loved writing, reading, sharing, and telling stories. When I started college I fell in love with organization, planning, and taking care of myself. Combine these loves – and you have Dani Dearest.



I believe that there’s a lot more to myself than anyone has so far discovered.

That’s why I’m here, to discover more about myself through writing and sharing my experiences, successes, fails, and crazy life with you.

Everybody needs someone by their side, supporting them along the way, and that’s exactly what Dani Dearest is for you. When I started Dani Dearest back in my Freshman dorm room, it started as a little personal blog to share my experiences in. Since then we have grown, expanded, and improved into this tiny business and massive community here to be that BFF by your side throughout your college and twenty-something experience.

Join me on this journey while I navigate post-grad life, work toward my dream job, express myself through organization (yes, that’s a thing!), and work to find my place in this world.

    I love the energy in both the look and content of your blog. How do you find the time!?

      Thank you so much! Like I said, I’m a procrastinating overachiever haha 🙂 I do work to stop myself from doing work!

      I also wonder how bloggers find the time! It’s all in me I just have the hardest time carving out the window in the day to sit down and do something with mine! I love your energy and I’m hoping to learn a lot from you!

    There’s a whole big world outside of California, and once you discover it, you won’t be so obsessed with being from that silly state. 🙂 Good luck with your life.

    Hi Dani! I can totally identify with you — I’m a college senior and I love writing and blogging as well. I was wondering if you could give me some pointers on how to make my blog look a little more fun and upbeat. Your blog looks so cute and I wish I knew how to make mine look as lovely. Do you have any advice? I really appreciate it!!

    Dani, I found you on Pinterest and have spent an hour reading your posts when I should be writing a paper, finishing up a presentation, getting started on a book review, and reading up for a quiz *whoops*

    I didn’t think I’d find anyone so much like me in the blogging community. I too am 19 years old, majoring in Communication, and lead a super busy life (working 4 jobs as well here!) and am somewhat a procrastinating overachiever (I finally have a phrase to describe myself, thank you!)

    Thank you for your tips and your posts. They resonate a lot with me and say a lot of things I need to hear. And I really, really love your blog.

    – Mary
