The Simple Way to Have an Instantly Better Day

Being nice takes just as much energy as being negative. I try to remember this everywhere I go…. saying hello to the barista at Starbucks, holding the elevator for someone down the hallway, or letting someone into the lane on the highway. You never know what someone might be dealing with in their life, even if…

Recent Movies!

Besides reading, I’ve been super into going to the movies. Such a fun way to get out of the house on a cold night (or afternoon!). After hearing about MoviePass– I knew I needed it. For $10/month you can see an unlimited number of movies (1x/day). I love going to see new movies, but I hate…

Seeing Stars

When I first started seeing stars everywhere, I didn’t love the trend. I have to say though, it’s grown on me in a big way. Sharing some of my favorite star items from around the internet.

On My Radar

What a great week. It finally felt like a “normal” work week to me and there was a lot of good in every day. Some highlights: a double date in the city, a trip to the dog park without completely turning into a block of ice, and a workout every single day. I have a lot on…

Cold Weather

Flannel Dress

When we’re in the dead of winter, I really start to miss my ballet flats and dresses! We’re still quite a ways away from bare legs, but last week we did get lucky with some warmer temperatures. I took it as an opportunity to wear this plaid dress with tights. It’s so funny to me how 45 degrees in January feels so “warm,” especially after single-digit temperatures. 45-degrees in October and I’d be bundled up with boots and scarves, the works!

My Winter “At Home” Uniform

If you were to walk into my apartment at any given moment right now, there’s a pretty good chance that I’m wearing something that looks a lot like this. If I’m not wearing this exact outfit, that is. Working from home may have its challenges, but being able to wear super comfortable clothing all day…
