Binge This Week: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

The fascinating journey that Amy Sherman-Palladino, the show’s creator, takes you on to see how Midge handles this unplanned event in her very planned out life is mesmerizing. Not to mention hilarious. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is exactly the show we need to cozy up to during these long winter months. Lucky for us, season 2 is premiering December 5th. That is just enough time for you to binge season 1 if you haven’t already.

A Brief History of Tweed to Help You Choose the Best Tweed Jacket

So how did tweed become mainstream?: The royals, obviously! There’s not enough time to get started on my love for all things royal family, but I was not surprised when I read that Prince Albert turned tweed fashionable in 1848. When Prince Albert purchased Balmoral in Scotland he designed the very first Estate Tweed, which is similar to Scottish Clan Tartans.

Is Revolve the Next Victoria's Secret?

Oh, Revolve. The retail powerhouse that I will never understand. Through what I can only imagine was years of continuous hard work and well implemented influencer strategies, Revolve has made it’s mark on the millenial generation and the online shopping world. The company has established itself as a contender, one that is not going away, one that has proven to be successful. However, they just can’t seem to understand that the world is not inhabited by women that are all a size 2. Revolve, when are you going to board the size inclusive train? It’s time.

Last Minute Labor Day Getaways in the Midwest

My favorite season is quickly approaching. Autumn is in the air and before you know it we'll all be bundled in our plaid scarves and fall boots. But first, one last hoorah! Labor Day weekend is upon us and I’m a huge proponent of taking advantage of long weekends. So I’ve put together some last minute day or weekend trips that require little-to-no planning. 

Handling Anxiety While Trying To Create a Successful Life

Do you ever look at the successful people around you, or on social media, and wonder how they do it all? How do these women have kids, run multi-million dollar companies, look amazing and still appear to have their shit together? Are none of them freaking out on the inside? Do successful women mask their anxiety, or do they just not have it at all?

How to Keep Commitments to Yourself

Lately I have noticed that a lot of the tasks on my lists do not get crossed off or keep getting pushed to the next day’s list. These are obviously important tasks or else I wouldn’t have written them down, right? Things like train for the half marathon, clean the shower, fold the laundry, write. These tasks are necessary to my well-being. Yet I find reasons why they cannot be accomplished at their set times on my list.

The Secret About Happiness

These were the things that were making me sad and anxious and causing self-doubt. Until I started to remember the bigger picture. Life isn’t about each and every second of every day. It isn't about how much money you have or how fast you pay off debt. (Even though I am still racing to pay off mine as quick as possible.) It’s about the overall impact your life has on the people and things around you.

The Debt Free Journey Slowdown

Recently I’ve a hit a wall. A big, massive, 100 foot tall, brick wall. Business has been slow and my debt payoff journey has slowed dramatically. Dramatically! And it’s making me anxious. It’s making me question everything that I’m doing, because clearly I’m doing everything wrong. Or am I?

Washington, D.C.

D.C. offers almost everything that NYC has to offer, but with less crowds and more open spaces. NYC will always be number one in my heart, but I have to say that D.C. has that je ne sais quoi that keeps me going back for more. Plus, it is fascinating to see and learn about the amazing people that and places that have molded this country.

The Sweetness of Doing Nothing

I decided to jump off the insta-perfect train about 4 months ago. Honestly, I don’t remember the exact day. I just remember thinking that I couldn’t do this anymore. I already have a perfect for me life and I was ruining it because I wasn’t skinny enough, I hadn’t been to Morocco,  I hadn’t reached 10,000 Instagram followers so that I could finally have the coveted swipe up feature, etc.

5 Spring Jackets Every Woman Needs

Finding the perfect jacket is something that I never put much thought into. It wasn't until I was without a jacket when I needed one that I realized it's time to add some staple jackets to my closet. These are five styles of jackets that I feel every woman should have in their closet. 

Welcome to 2018, Your Most Successful Year Yet

I love the first week of a new year. It is filled with rushed excitement trying to get everything done to ensure that your year starts off on the right foot. At least we are all hoping to start our year off on the right foot. It is also the time to hit the reset button from last year. Maybe you didn't accomplish everything that you wanted last year, well now here's your chance! It was this thought that had me thinking of our theme for this month: Do You, Not New.
