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…

We Couldn’t Believe These 6 Fashion Finds Were From Amazon

We Couldn’t Believe These 6 Fashion Finds Were From Amazon

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.

I Ditched My Cell Phone for 10 Days – Here’s What Happened

For months before my Thailand trip, I was feeling overwhelmed. This constant sense of always having to be “on” that is inherent in the lives of entrepreneurs, side-hustlers and pretty much anyone who chooses to damn themselves to a life of being constantly working. I knew that when I am living my day to day life, phone time is a necessity. It’s how I write my posts, how I engage with my audience, handle business affairs and basically live. That’s when I realized that if I truly wanted a vacation for from it all, I needed to leave my phone at home…

At least once a week, someone on Instagram sees my this hairstyle and asks me to recreate it for them.

The holiday season has come and gone and yet I’m still getting texts from friends saying thank you for the holiday card. Holiday card traditions came into play in the early 19th century and have since been regarded as a social obligation. Holiday cards were the one time a year that long-distance relatives can see pictures of their cute grandchildren and get an update on their lives. But in the age of social media and constant updates with print prices high and mail times delayed- what is even the point? Here’s why…
