After learning about Jaime Derringer, no one can ever tell me again that being a hyphenate (a person who is active in more than one occupation or sphere) is confusing:

The key element that ties all of her interests together is design; specifically, the art in design and how it affects your life.

While getting happily lost in her blog design-milk, I found new adventures in capsule hotels, ghost kitchens, rooms
