Things You Need to Start Saying No To

Sorry Shondra, the ‘Year of No’ is a real thing (that’s a witty reference to Shondra Rhimes “Year of Yes” book for my non-literary friends.)

When my friends want to kick it and have fun, I am hyperaware of the things that I could be doing in order to be productive over relaxed.

How To Tackle Money In Your Relationship

If talking about money stresses you out, you’re not alone. Discussing money can be a huge taboo. Whether you’re talking to your boss about a raise or to your best friend about how much you owe her for dinner, talking about money can be very uncomfortable and that spills right over into your love life. In fact, money is often cited as one of the main causes of fights in marriages. A number of studies even show that money (or fights about money) are a leading cause of divorce. Ouch…
