There Were Moments of Gold & There Were Flashes of Light

This title pertains to nothing. Well, that’s not true. It pertains to Celiné Dion, goddess of life and everything that is magical. (June 3! June 3! I’m seeing her in Las Vegas on June 3!) Here is my favorite video of Celiné Dion: Anyway, what’s new with you? This is what’s new with me… Wait, first, […]

Thursday Thoughts

Hello hello! Before I dive into this brain dump, please accept my heartiest THANK YOU to everyone who has been supporting the Ali on the Run Show! I know I keep saying this, but I’m really loving doing this, and am so grateful for everyone who has subscribed, listened, rated, and reviewed the show. (I […]

How I Finally Got Over My Body Issues

We’re getting a little deep today. This is a long post, and there’s still so much more I could’ve said — and still want to say — on this topic. It took me two months to hit finally publish and to want to share all of this. Here’s a bit of reflection on my relationship […]

Surrounding Myself With the Best People I Can Find

For the past few years, I have lived for my precious Sunday mornings. I love waking up early on Sunday, then taking Ellie out for a quick walk before eating breakfast while simultaneously reading the newspaper and watching a random old episode of Scandal. Then I head to the Upper East Side — my old neighborhood! — […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Is Valentine’s Day a totally cheesy Hallmark holiday? Yes. But am I totally feeling it this year? ALSO YES. I’ve been in a nonstop good mood for like five days straight, and that’s the longest streak I’ve had since roughly November 9. I’m going to keep riding this high, and in the spirit of the […]

Every Day I’m Hustlin’

I just couldn’t think of a better title. And I think I’ve used “Life Lately” like 38 times already. So…every day I’m hustlin’. Because I have been! The past week has felt like a whirlwind, and it feels so good. I feel like I have a million things on my plate right now, and I enjoy that […]

Fridays With #POTUS Ellie

PUPPY OF THE UNITED STATES. But first, a little something unrelated to the rest of this post.  I haven’t really gotten political here. Other than a few Tweets here and there, I’ve generally kept my feelings about the current political climate and state of affairs off my blog — not because it’s not all really important right […]

Fridays With Ellie: What The World Needs Now Is Dogs, Cute Dogs

I mentioned in my last post that I’ve been really struggling with my sleep lately. I think I can pinpoint a handful of reasons that’s happening, including my inability to find the perfect pillow for my ever-changing sleep positions, plus the fact that 60-pound Ellie likes snoozing on top of me. But I also think (fine, know) it’s because […]

A Lighter Look At Life Lately

I started writing this post by laying into all the harshness, nastiness, and all-around terribleness of the internet lately. Beyond just the political climate — can I get an ugh? — the internet feels extra harsh lately. But then I realized, hey! It’s not just the internet! It’s everywhere! I wish I could embrace a total […]

A Silly Survey Because WHY NOT?

A few weeks (months?) ago, I was reading Glamour, and the issue featured a Q&A with Justin Bieber. I think he’s done a decent job turning his career back around and redeeming himself, don’t you? He uses so many dancers in his videos and on his tours, and I appreciate him for that. The questions were sort of fun, […]
