I remember when I was younger and I watched this couple sitting near the window seats on a flight to Europe. I I was only 8 and my mom and I had a stopover on our way to Pakistan. The couple was mesmerizing. They laughed and giggled, slept on each other’s shoulder’s and even watched a movie together. I remember thinking that one day I was going to be able to travel with my soulmate and we would be borderline sappy. Fast forward more than 20 years and I feel so blessed to be able to travel with my husband often. I’d be lying if I said it was only fun & games. Traveling can cause stress and tension in relationships if you aren’t mindful of certain things. Here are the things you should focus on before you plan your next trip with your beau…View Post
You’ve seen them at the mall, at Ulta and even at the airport, Benefit Cosmetics is everywhere you need a quick fix product and that’s exactly the principle that the company was founded on.

True to their San Francisco roots, Benefit’s first product was created for exotic dancers in need of a skin-colored tint – wowza. Here are the top 5 Benefit products today…View Post

Long hair? Yes, I care. Because it hurts! As if tension headaches weren’t real enough (yes, they’re a thing) the only thing worse than dealing with an unsupportive sports bra, is an unsupportive bun on the top of your head that is the first to give up on the workout. How many times do you re-tie your hair during a workout? Survey says, “over 3” That’s madness and there’s a better way…View Post
There comes a point in every millennial’s life when they realize how the time has flown by and just how old they really are. For me, it’s when I realized how old the starts of my favorite Disney Channel Original Movies are today. Disney Channel movies were the highlight of my Friday nights growing up and my friends and I would wait all month for the premier. Remember Zenon, you know, girl of the 21st century? She is 33 years old now. Do you know what that means? It means that it’s been two decades since Zenon first made our hearts go boom boom.
The nostalgia of DCOMs triggered a deep dive into what other Disney channel gems we’ve been missing out over the years. I turned to my Insta-fam to help me populate a list of the top Disney Channel Original Movies and boy did they deliver. Here is the final list…View Post
The Atlanta food scene is one of South’s most well-hidden gems. From Buford Highway to Grant Park culture runs deep and is engrained in the fiber of the city. Yes, Atlanta traffic is notoriously awful, but it’s because the city is sprawling with hustlers & go-getters from each corner ITP.
We Atlantans love our restaurants and there’s no better way to eat your way through the city than to mix it up with a few hole-in-the-wall spots and some celebrated Atlanta landmarks. Here is your go-to guide for 72 hours in the city…View Post
Some women love beards. I am *not* one of those women, at least not on my man. While a little scruff is sexy, the stubble quickly turns to sting anytime you want to lean in for some snuggle time. As a woman who hates beard burn and married to a man who hates to shave, we needed a compromise—and we found one…View Post
I’ll never forget my first megareformer workout. I had been doing barre and Pilates classes for months and when I heard about this “core-intensive” strength class I was confident that I would be able to kill it. I was so wrong.
My challenge: Stellar Bodies lunchtime workout. 50 minutes of me and this machine that surely wouldn’t be that bad. Right?
Oh, so wrong. ..View Post
When you think winter, your mind doesn’t immediately correlate that to feeling steamy (or does it?!) It’s cold outside, you are wearing more layers, you want to brave the less so ordering in and watching a Harry Potter marathon in your flannel pajamas seems like the least objectionable option for date night. I get it, because what I just described was my last Friday night. But winter doesn’t have to bury your love life with icicles, here are 6 ways to find the heat this winter…View Post
Remember when you used to buy books on Amazon? Uh yeah… me neither. Jeff Bezos knew what he was doing when he launched a service that gets you exactly what you need in one place for quickly as possible. I’m pretty sure my last Amazon box consisted of a 26 ft dog leash, shampoo for Sahir, a sweater for me and a portable charger. What can I say? We’re prime-obsessed millennials. It’s avocado toast, immediate gratification and Amazon prime – order is optional…View Post
