Things I Can’t Stop Wearing

Things I Can’t Stop Wearing

As someone who is into fashion, it kills me that I’m actually extremely boring. Career-wise I spent the last 3 years in sports so leggings became a closet staple. Even when I switched to a role in entertainment a few months ago I realized that habits are hard to kill…

Why My Husband Would Never Get A Prenup

Why My Husband Would Never Get A Prenup

Being engaged is such a magical time. Everyone is congratulating you and you wake up every morning staring at that shiny metal on your finger. You’re ecstatic, yet stressed about the wedding you are about to have. But just like you have to have the conversation about your guest list (and how your stepdad’s second cousin’s niece cannot come) – you need to discuss sensitive topics with your partner…

Why You Deserve to Cheat

Why You Deserve to Cheat

I’ve never been good at diets. It’s the basic dilemma that as soon as it’s off the table – that’s what I immediately crave. Fitness experts and dietitians have been throwing around the word “lifestyle change” for years and while there is some merit in that – it’s not easy to just wake up one morning and say “hey, I think I’ll be vegan today! Sounds like a good lifestyle change!” My natural instincts are more like “I Need Burger Now – extra cheese please!” – in my Wreck-It-Ralph voice. 

If eating properly is a lifestyle change, do you ever get to cheat? Moreover, is it actually healthy to cheat? Truth is that mentally, cheating on your diet allows you to have some space and something to look forward to. One of the biggest issues with dieting…

4 Winter Nail Colors That Are IT Girl Approved

4 Winter Nail Colors That Are IT Girl Approved

I’m guilty of one of the cardinal breaches of getting your nails done. The sin of being basic and getting the same shade every – single – damn – time. Like clockwork, when the weather changes, I suddenly develop courage and try to mix it up. Here is what my nail salon experience looks like monthly. 

I call to make an appointment and inevitably show up 15 minutes late. Sure enough, 6 people show up at the exact same time and we are passively (aggressively) trying to beat each other and get seated first. I immediately turn to the wall and pick a statement color and mosey my way to the lady declaring that “I’m ready!” She confirmed, “Did you pick your color?”, “Sure did!” – I respond as I innocently blink my eyes as I walk past client numbers 2-5 “Ha! Beat You! I say (in my mind) with an evil laugh”

The next 45 minutes are grueling torture because I’m covered in foil like a…

3 Changes To Make NOW For Your Most Productive Self

Managing a full-time job, an almost full-time job, home, and family can get overwhelming. I generally have a mini-breakdown once a week where I have to tidy my entire house before I can get anything done because I’m just so OCD like that. There are a few rules that I live by to make things a little less stressful and get a little more done. Today I am sharing them with you…

One Thing I Wish I Had Known About Marriage

One Thing I Wish I Had Known About Marriage

There is no particular reason why I am entitled to give you advice on marriage. I’m not your grandparent who has been married 50 years or an award-winning relationship counselor. I’m simply (see what I did there?) a woman who has been with her partner for quite a while and is coming up on 3 years of marriage. Over this time, I’ve learned a few things.

When you get engaged, you’ll learn that…

8 Genius Rules For Working Out During Lunch

8 Genius Rules For Working Out During Lunch

I get it. You’re busy. I’m busy – we all have things to do and somehow working out never quite makes the cut when it comes to priorities. We have others counting on us: our coworkers, kids, family members, spouses, etc. how in the world could you take an hour to yourself?  This isn’t a blog post that is going to convince you to make the time for yourself or give you tips on how you can turn it all off and focus on you for an hour. Nah, you gotta do that yourself. BUT once you think you…

4 THINGS TO LOOK FOR IN A LEATHER JACKET

4 THINGS TO LOOK FOR IN A LEATHER JACKET

Last spring I made an impromptu purchase when I was in Philadelphia visiting my sister and I bought something I wouldn’t need for months. Sahir was certain that I wouldn’t ever need the jacket this time of year and by the time winter rolled around again, I would be on to the next and it would be trapped in the back of my closet with the UGG boots and white denim jackets that just never got cool enough to wear again. But when I saw this faux leather jacket at…
