Spring is starting to get on my nerves with warm weather teasers followed by snowy and cold weeks. The Midwest is known for the bipolar weather, but this year is truly pushing my limits. Maybe it’s the thought that we have a big vacation planned at the end of summer, or maybe it’s just the […]
From your husband, to your dog, to everyone in between, Valentine’s Day isn’t just a day to treat the one you love the most. It’s the one time anyone can share heart-shaped everything and be overly gushy because we all love someone, and that’s great! See a few of my favorite gifts for your special […]
Being just my husband and myself in our home, and working very different work schedules, we found ourselves in a pattern of fast food and no cooking, making us spend more money in the long run and not looking out for our health. For months, almost years, I have been trying different food methods to avoid the “I’m tired and just going to pick something up” in life. Many said try meal prepping – my husband and I are both not fans of anything that isn’t freshly cooked. Others said dinner delivery services – which are amazing, but can be pricey and don’t satisfy all 21 meals you need in a week. So finally, for those of you who need the stability of both nutritional and financial value in food, I have found my top five tips for simplifying your food routine.
Be better, feel better, do better – these are just a few of the topics we wish for in the new year for ourselves. We all want to be stronger, better and more efficient individuals dominating at life just like the next person, but we all can’t just start doing that on our own. I have found that reading new strategies, enjoying new points of views can really assist in supporting you mentally and emotionally in an new or improved journey forward in life. Whether it be about life, careers or just plain growing up, books are a great resource for finding information you need to take your journey to the next level.
2018 is a time to make the new year your b%#ch with new fitness routines, diets, and my favorite, new clothes. Transforming yourself is the natural choice for New Year resolutions but you don’t need to kill your pocketbook (or credit card) to feel new and fresh. Creativity is important to transform your current pieces into something different, unique and fashion forward. With a much more minimal investment, you can become the fashion icon with your friends and coworkers in 2018.
Growing up in the brisk Chicago area, our Fall and Winter seasons dictate some serious closet space for sweaters, being that you need them almost six months a year! Having moved to Florida for a few years, I cleared out all of my winter wear, assuming I would never return, but I was clearly very wrong and I have spent our last two years here refurnishing my closet with cute sweaters to transition between the chilly and mild seasons. Check out a few of my favorite winter sweater picks to start 2018 off with style!
My life is constantly on the go: work, gym, shopping, client meetings… it seems like it never ends! I’m lucky to be in my youthful years and have the hustle required to work 12 to 14 hours minimum a day before laying my head down, but this doesn’t mean that it’s any easier to carry my daily life in a bag. I often get swamped down with multiple bags filled with heavy gadgets and accessories to make the diverse activities of my day complete. It took me some time, but I have found the PERFECT accessories for any on-the-go boss babe (or dude) to make your life just a little easier.
I’m the kind of girl who likes to have a fresh dress for ever party, each showing my unique personality toward the event. Holiday parties are the most fun because sparkle, bold colors and different lengths are all in for any style of event. Enjoy a night out with coworkers or take in the loving aroma of a family party – these dresses will stand the test of any type of event with my favorite selections from Rent the Runway.
Of most of the holidays throughout the year, the Christmas season can be one of the most challenging for those who live making just enough to pass each month. Most people find themselves racking up the credit card debt this time of the year to splurge for the people we love the most, but it’s still hard once you receive that statement on how much you actually can invest into a season.
Hair is by far the hardest thing to manage as a woman – curly, straight, frizzy: each type is unique and requires something different. I have most definitely experimented with many to better my hair due the natural frizzy and dead look it has. To know how to tame the mane, you have to understand what you’re working with, and great stylist can help.
