aren’t you ready to feel so much better?

I freaking love this time of year. As someone that is usually pretty good about being decluttered and efficient, Fall almost feels like a fresher start to me than the New Year. I know, it’s crazy talk but January is so darn depressing to me so it’s hard to get excited about New Year’s Resolutions […]

Unplugging From Digital Life

the magic of unplugging from your digital life

What do you do first thing in the morning? Stretch like a ballerina? Open your blinds and look up at that fresh new sunlight? Sing a song to the birds? Let’s get real, most of us do the same thing first thing in the morning. We reach over to our bedside table, grab our phones, […]

roommates: making it work when sharing a kitchen

I’ve always had a roommate. Regardless of with whom I’ve lived, I’ve noticed that there is one thing that holds true: the kitchen is the hotspot. By hotspot, I don’t mean a trendy, overpriced bar that everyone goes to only to leave unsatisfied and penniless two hours later.
