Discovering Self-Tanning

Discovering Self-Tanning
For someone that lives for sunny days and would rather wear a bikini rather than any other item of clothing, I’m shocked that it’s taken me until JUST two weeks ago to discover self-tanner! Growing up, we had “family tanning days” where I would join my mom and dad at their tanning salon, and we’d... Read more »

Goals > Resolutions

Goals > Resolutions
I’ve never been much of a resolution girl. I feel like it’s a setup for failure. How many tweets, blogs, posts, conversations have you recently had where people have mentioned how they’ve already messed up their New Year’s resolutions? It’s January 7th. It’s the first full week of the new year. Ease up on yourself!... Read more »

October Amazon Fashion Finds

October Amazon Fashion Finds
I’m so surprised that I never thought to shop for clothes on Amazon before the past few months. I have always been a huge Amazon fan – mainly for selling client’s products in grocery and for purchasing little beauty and food items that I need and can have delivered the same day, but I never...

One Dress Four Ways

One Dress Four Ways
One thing I like is when I can find new clothes that are versatile. How great is it when you can find an article of clothing that looks like a new piece each time you wear it?! If one item can go from work to date night or from the farmers market to brunch, it’s... Read more »

While I start to panic a bit about our upcoming winter once the end of summer hits, I’m working on embracing fall a bit more this year.

I get asked a lot if people can “pick my brain” and give them tips on starting their own businesses, how to successfully work for yourself and what my “secrets” to time management are.

Desi is14 Today!
It’s a tradition to tell the story of your birth on your birthday, right? I don’t have kids, but my mom always tells me mine. And while I don’t have kids, I’ve got a tiny mutt that turns 14 today! Since I wasn’t there for his birth, I count 8 weeks back from the day... Read more »

Kate Spade Was a Person, Too

Kate Spade Was a Person, Too
I wanted to write a warm and fuzzy blog about Kate Spade today. I wanted to ask everyone that owns a Kate Spade to share their story about the first piece from her they ever bought or received and I wanted to share my own story. I wanted to compile all those stories into another... Read more »

40 Things I've Learned in 40 Years
If an idea scares you, like gives you deep down in your soul anxiety, you should probably do it. Waiting for a sign? This is it. Never make him tell you twice that he doesn’t want you. And when he comes back (and he WILL…again and again) don’t trust your lonely brain when it tells... Read more »

Reflections on This Year, Thoughts on Next Year

Reflections on This Year, Thoughts on Next Year
I’ve never been one for making New Year’s Resolutions. I’m more of a ‘set monthly goals and do my best to achieve them’ type of person. But I realized when I was thinking about blogging today, that the goals I set are almost exclusively for work, and not my life. If you know me, that’s... Read more »
