The 2015 Version of a Photo Album: My Social Book

IMG_4078.JPG

I used to take and put together the cutest photo albums. I have personalized albums that I used to buy at Exposures - leather bound albums dated from 2003-2009. What happened in 2009? Nothing... I just slowly stopped taking as many photos. Stopped taking them, stopped printing them out and certainly stopped putting them together into a nice photo … [Read more...]

Screen Shot 2015-08-06 at 9.26.46 PM

Part of my interest in Stitch Fix comes with the intrigue of it all. There's excitement when I get a box on my doorstep and there's that gleam of hope that what's inside will be cute and perfect. Plus, who doesn't love having someone else shop for them? I know I do. Having a personal stylist via Stitch Fix is about as rich for my blood as I'm … [Read more...]

I’m Hooked On Coloring Books for Adults: Simple Stress Relieving Fun

Screen Shot 2015-08-03 at 8.11.23 PM

When I was in college, I remember walking into my local CVS and buying a children's coloring book and a box of Crayola crayons on a whim. I went back to my dorm room and sat on the floor and colored a picture of some silly cartoon. A friend jokingly made fun of me. It did look a little silly and it wasn't as exciting as I thought it would be. Cuz … [Read more...]

Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 6.57.01 PM

Another brand I met at Sweet Suite last week in New York City was the makers behind the Perfect Drink. I think this may have been one of the first booths I visited, cuz hey, I can sniff out a good cocktail better than most ;-) They were making margaritas so I had to try one - all in the name of transparent reviewing, right? The Perfect Drink … [Read more...]

Last week I was up in Manhattan for my 4th BlogHer and 2nd Blogger Bash. Both are fabulous blogging conferences/events and they happened to overlap this year.

In my 3-4 days in New York City, I'll generally not have a free … [Read more...]

Back on the Healthy Eating Bandwagon: What’s Your Tipping Point?

Screen Shot 2015-07-13 at 4.22.55 PM

Pretty sure that my family knew that my "HOLY SH*T" scream from the bathroom yesterday morning couldn't mean anything good as I stepped on the scale. I shouldn't have been surprised at what I saw though. The same way you lose weight - slowly and by a healthy calorie deficit- I gained weight slowly but eating (& drinking) more. If I'm … [Read more...]

Stitch Fix #7: Please Help Me Decide! #FashionFriday

Screen Shot 2015-07-09 at 5.05.37 PM

Yo, friends. It's been awhile since I got my last Stitch Fix box. My last box was in April. I only kept the one dress and I still have yet to wear it (which is more because it's a heavy weight than me not liking it. Hope to break it out in cooler weather in the fall). But next week I'm headed to New York City for an epic 4 days of blogging … [Read more...]
