Little known fact about me: I’ve been a fan of Seinfeld for most of my life. I used to remember it would play late at night, around 11pm, and I would watch it until I would fall asleep. It’s remained one of my favorite shows to this day and as I entered adulthood, I began to really appreciate it in a way that I couldn’t when I was still just a kid. This is one of the reasons I always recommend revisiting shows, films, music, books, etc. that you loved growing up because most of the time you’ll find them even better now that you have the capability to understand what’s really being said. I’ve learned a lot from Jerry Seinfeld over the past year that it was almost difficult to narrow it down to 5 things. Here goes…
Regardless of whether you have a New Year’s resolution or not, as December comes to an end it’s only natural to reflect back on the year that has passed.
REALNESS: The weeks leading up to December 31st are often the most difficult for me emotionally. I tend to be hard on myself every so often and the natural nostalgia that comes along with yet another year coming to a close brings that side of me to the surface. 2013 + 2014 had their blessings but they were by no means “easy” years for me. Trying my best to keep balancing my work and personal life has been fun but exhausting. When you’re really busy, it’s easy to get caught up in day to day demands and lose sight of the bigger picture. I made the decision to spend the final two weeks of the year, enjoying just living without deadlines for a moment and getting clear about what I really want to do and how.
New Year’s Resolutions Never Work
Maybe that’s a dramatic statement, but I feel like most people forget about their resolutions within the first few weeks of the New Year. I believe in starting your New Year’s resolutions (or any goals in general) ASAP, not waiting for the first of the year, the first of the month, the first day of the week, etc. START AS SOON AS YOU CAN and you can almost always do SOMETHING in ANY MOMENT that can move you forward.
It’s always refreshing to see a celebrity really getting involved in creating a brand rather than just slapping their names on products. You can always tell what they’ve had a hand in and what was left up to someone else entirely. Carrie Underwood’s Calia activewear line definitely falls in the category of celebrities that care.
I had the fortunate opportunity to be invited to attend the private event last Wednesday where Carrie Underwood appeared to talk about her line and answer questions asked by the lovely, Alicia Quarels. I was so impressed with how detailed and honest Carrie was about really providing busy women with practical and cute activewear. Here’s what you need to know:
One of my biggest pet peeves is when people take themselves too seriously. I love people that are able to let their hair down, laugh at themselves, and are open to making mistakes. I believe that having fun is essential to living a happier life and who doesn’t want to enjoy themselves more? I decided to put together a list of ideas to help you have more fun!
I promised myself that I wouldn’t wait until May or June to start worrying about bikini season or to start regretting not getting / staying in shape throughout the winter. I am looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner, my mom makes the most amazing stuffing, but I’m gonna have to earn it! The one thing that I’ve always hated about working out was getting sweaty and feeling dirty afterwards. Having to wash and dry my hair repeatedly gets to be a real pain!
What you do right in the first hour or so upon waking can really set the tone for the rest of your day. From my own personal experience, especially as someone that mostly works from home, it’s easy to feel like I can get up whenever and do whatever without the fear of a boss coming to yell at me. But, regardless of whether you work from home, from an office, for yourself, or someone else, every morning is a new opportunity to set the foundation for the rest of your day and eventually, the rest of your life. Here’s how I start my mornings for maximum productivity & energy.
Gift-giving can be a real challenge for many, especially during the holiday season when you have multiple people you’d like to shop for on your list all at once. When it comes to the women in your life, I believe that nice, quality jewelry is almost always your best bet! In this video, I share my picks from Zales to help you find the perfect pieces to make each lady on your list smile. If you’re shopping for your…
Fall has officially made its mark here in NYC. The leaves are starting to fall, the days are getting shorter, and the nights cooler. It’s starting to get darker earlier and earlier as the days and weeks go by and it’s easy to feel a bit down and lackluster as a result. I decided to share a few ways I go about finding comfort and bringing in some joy during these colder months!
