About Me

Hey there! I'm Sara and this is my blog, Swing The Day Away. Here you will find photographs and ramblings about my style, baking extravaganzas, adventures, and more!  I live on the shoreline in New England where I hate the winter, but love the fall and pretty much all other seasons...but especially fall. No, really. You're talking to an October-born girl, here. I try to find as many neat and pretty places as I can around here. I love to travel and go anywhere new!

I started Swing The Day Away when I was 20 years old after discovering the world of fashion blogging, and the blogosphere in general. I've always been a writer, but I developed (pun intended) a passion for photography and style towards the end of high school. Swing The Day Away is a place for me to combine and share all of my passions with all of you lovely people!


I started out using a little Canon Powershot, and then was given a hand-me-down Leica D-Lux 4 from my dad. Currently, I use a Canon Rebel T3i, which is my first DSLR camera! All of my pictures were taken by either me or my awesomely helpful friends (Looking at you, Chris, Sarah, and Nadia!). They're all such troopers going out on photoshoots with me. :)

In addition to writing and photography, I love to bake. You will find recipes here for lots of yummy and delicious treats. My favorite type of treats to bake are cookies, but I also enjoy making and decorating cakes and such.

Want to know more? Feel free to e-mail me with any questions/thoughts you may have. For now, I'll leave you with a few fun facts: I have a unique and everlasting love for tea. I love anything vintage/retro, but am a full-on 90's kid all the way. My favorite places to go are orchards, I collect novelty mugs, and one of my favorite smells is old books.
