The best yoga pants ever: giveaway!

My current life schedule consists of working from home on Friday (priceless start-up perk) and yoga teacher training in my neighborhood all day Saturday and Sunday.

Behind the scenes: Sally Hansen #ShineOn

Living in the city, it’s often difficult to focus on the joys of traveling or find time to daydream about far-flung places when you have to worry about finding New York apartments or deal with the constant noise and grime. Last month, I had the chance to be a part of the Sally Hansen #ShineOn campaign celebrating […]

Spring sandals that give back: giveaway!

Spring can’t come soon enough for me! I’ve been trying to embrace spring as much as is possible when the temperatures outside are barely hovering above freezing: buying fresh tulips and daffodils every week, painting my nails bright colors (to peek through my fingerless gloves), telling myself how much I’ll miss the chill once the […]

Dominating the world (or maybe not)

To preface this entire post: the biggest thing I learned at World Domination Summit is that I don’t like conferences. I don’t like large crowds of people and I don’t like schedules. Small talk drains me. I prefer exploring a city on my own, by myself. I also have a hard time with audio learning: give me […]

Getting my Carrie on: the Sex and the City tour

I didn’t start watching “Sex and the City” until  I went to see the movie with my mom on my 20th birthday. After recovering from the embarrassment that ensues after watching said film with your mother, I immediately watched the entire series from start to finish. I’d be lying if I said that SATC hadn’t […]
