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, […]

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! — […]

40 Days To Personal Revolution: Final Recap

“Waste zero time beating yourself up for what you haven’t accomplished. It’s pointless.” I put off writing this post because I haven’t really wanted to acknowledge that the 40 Days to Personal Revolution program has ended. I tried to convince Bethany that I actually signed up for a program called 120 Days to Personal Revolution, […]

40 Days To Personal Revolution: Let’s Get It Started!

This morning, after a 9:30 meeting, I hustled over to my yoga studio. Not to take class. Not to play with Josie, the studio owner’s amazing pup. Not to pick up sweaty clothes I’d “accidentally” left in a locker overnight. OK, for two nights. Fine, three nights, I’m so ashamed. Not even to visit with […]

Stop Waiting

I’ve preached quite a bit over the past year about all the ways yoga — specifically Bethany and Lyons Den Power Yoga — has impacted my life and powerfully changed the way I choose to live it. I really do encourage you to go try it out for yourself. It’s my happiest place right now. […]

My 2014 Game Changers

For the past two years, I wasn’t really into the “year end recap” thing. I cringed looking back on the two previous years, and wanted pretty desperately to just move forward. As I said time and time again, 2012 and 2013 were “just not my years.” But 2014 was a year that changed the game […]

The Three Questions Everyone Keeps Asking

Yesterday was a looong day. So I’m kind of surprised to find out it’s only Tuesday today. Despite the fact that it was a marathon day, yesterday was a good one! My workday was busy and I scooted out of the office right at 5 in order to make it to the gym for some […]

Hey It’s OK…

My favorite magazine column is Glamour‘s “Hey It’s OK.” It’s a cute, one-page column, and senior year of college I literally wallpapered my bedroom with pages that I had ripped out from the magazine. The point of the column is to make you NOT feel guilty about certain thing, like life’s indulgences. Examples, you say? […]
