My Must-Have Favorites

I am the epitome of brand loyalty when it comes to products I love.

When It’s Scary, Do It

Asking the really cute coffee barista for his number? No-no. Running from fear is logical. Not only logical, it’s biological. But when it comes to your…

Therapy: Taking Care of Your Mental Health

Therapy. It’s a word that makes most people cringe. It’s one of those things we don’t openly talk about because it’s “embarrassing.” No one (*almost no one) wants to admit they’ve actually paid money to sit in a room and tell a stranger about what they’re facing. People don’t like to ask for help. Our…

Mindset Shift: Embracing Enough

What’s On Your Dream List?

10 Quotes To Live By

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” — Thomas Edison “Love your freaking life. Take pictures of everything.

Has #MeToo Gone Too Far?

Recently, a male friend of mine told me that men are now afraid to speak to women as a result of the #MeToo movement. I looked at him funny and asked, “Really?” He nodded vigorously and said, “Oh yeah, you never know when a woman is going to accuse you of something when all you…

3 Books You Need To Read in 2018

If ya’ll haven’t noticed by now, I’m obsessed with reading. I take my books with me everywhere. Work, the gym, the breakfast table, long car rides, and most favorably — my bed.

Unwinding After The Holidays

If you’re like me, the holidays came and went quicker than you could process them. One minute I was thinking, “Christmas seems so far away” and the next I was lying on my bed restlessly waiting for Santa to come crashing down the chimney. Then, in a flash of snow flakes and glitter, it was…
