Hello, and welcome to Thirty On Tap, a lifestyle blog that feels like a conversation with your best friend. This site is produced, edited, and run by De & Kate who are sisters (fine, sisters-in-law but the “in-law” is a technicality) who wanted to carve out their own corner of the internet for creativity, unfiltered thoughts, and sometimes, just a really, really funny gif.

On this blog, you’ll find a little bit of everything: the things we love, the things that make us happy, and the thoughts that we’re sometimes afraid to admit out loud — the kind of feelings that you can always tell your best friend. You’ll find fashion favorites, go-to recipes, memes (so many memes), and snapshots of life as a 30’something who might still be figuring some things out.

De is a writer and editor based in the Boston area. Before working full time in media, she was a theater and English educator, working at both public and independent schools in New England. Some of her favorite things are: dark nail polish, winged eyeliner, The O.C., and peppermint flavored coffee. She is perpetually trying to get her hair as blonde as possible in order to resemble a Wakefield twin.

In addition to running Thirty On Tap with Kate, De is the Weekend Editor for Teen Vogue. Her writing can also be found at InStyleMTV News, Allure, Glamour, Hello Giggles, and Romper.
