Hello! My name is Austin Rutland, and I am a 21-year-old writer, musician, amateur photographer, and Instagram addict. I am a senior at Western Kentucky University studying Editorial Journalism and American Sign Language. I spend my time writing mediocre songs and dreaming about the day I finally move to NYC. I have a passion for style and content creation, and I wanted to create this blog to have a platform to share my ideas and outfit inspiration.


Hi! I’m Bradford Higdon and I’m the other half of Maple Parlour. I’m a clumsy and awkward 21-year-old with a deep love for writing. I’m an avid reader, occasional piano player, and an online shopping addict. Currently a senior at Western Kentucky University as well, I’m majoring in Strategic Marketing with a minor in English. I’m looking to use this blog as both a creative outlet and as a way to share my ideas about personal development and life in general.
