I think we’ve all learned a lot during Covid, and turns out, I’m a nail gal (truly, the insights just keep coming). I didn’t realize how deeply ingrained my bi-weekly nail appointments were until I was stuck at home with raggedy nails and no real way to fix them. Not that I didn’t try! I, […]

One of my hard and fast fashion rules is I don’t buy items for my everyday life unless I can wear them multiple ways. I try and stick to it throughout my wardrobe, but sometimes items like oversized, pink tulle skirts come up and a gal needs an escape hatch so she can rock her […]

Okay, dirty secret time. I love “The Kardashians.” ????I KNOW. It’s a doozy, right? I basically just told you my kids eat Oreos and Coke for breakfast while I snack on Cheerios in wine. Some secrets should STAY SECRET. ???? They are some polarizing ladies, but I think the whole thing is hysterical, and glorious, […]

Outfit is unseasonably winter-y, don’t you think? ???? THANKS, COLORADO WEATHER. Vans sweatshirt (sold out) / Madewell jeans (similar) / Air Jordans / heart belt bag / sunglasses So, you know how I love berating people into buying and doing things that I think will change their lives? HOW HAVE I NOT BEEN DOING LINK […]

Let’s get real. I spend a lot of time in my exercise clothes. Like pretty much most of the time. (If we’re getting really real, I also am pretty stinky most of the time because SHOWERING IS HARD, PEOPLE.) So, going to Alt Summit every year, where it’s a veritable daily catwalk, is VERY EXCITING.

All right, gals, I’m about to give you the best Mom fashion gift ever: THE FANCY SWEATSHIRT. You know the intersection between “looking like you give you a damn” and “so comfy it’s like you’re sitting on your couch”? That’s where the Fancy Sweatshirt resides. You get all the accolades that normally come with wearing, […]

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had all of these huge goals that I wanted to accomplish. I have had this feeling that I was destined for more than I was letting myself be and do on a daily basis. But, I haven’t been able to get around myself. Do you know what […]

I’m going to say something that you already know, but seems important to reiterate occasionally: You only have now. Like this very moment. The past is over and the future hasn’t yet happened so you literally have this moment we’re in (thank you for spending it reading this post, btw). Yet, how often do we […]

Have you ever had that slightly desperate feeling while at dinner with friends (or in line at the grocery store or coffee shop or wherever) where you start to think you might not have the funds to cover what you’re doing? I can remember sitting with friends in a gorgeous locale and not being able […]

The thing I didn’t realize about designing a house is how much my style would evolve over the process. Part of it was due to hiring an interior designer, part was just learning more about the process, part was my husband nixing certain ideas. The one place I have stayed true though is my dedication […]

So, it’s the week before Halloween and you just realized you have nothing to wear? THE HORRORS! Fortunately, I have three last minute Halloween costume ideas that are super-easy to throw together and use things you can find in your closet (not sure how extensive your wig collection is so I added some links for […]

How’re you gals holding up? I just want to start this post by saying, I am here for you.  I mean that so sincerely. I don’t want any of us to feel alone and part of what’s keeping me going right now is showing up for you. So, tell me in the comments or by […]

One of the shows that has given me the greatest joy this past year is “Schitt’s Creek.” Have you watched it? OMG, Catherine O’Hara as Moira is basically my dream character – I want her wardrobe, her attitude, and that accent that’s part 30’s screwball comedy and part Madonna lives in London now. So, of […]

As you gals know, I’m a big believer in easy fun that delivers a big bang for your buck. And coloring your kid’s hair with markers does exactly that. In fact, it’s such easy fun it feels ridiculous to dedicate an entire post to it, because the instructions are: Color your kid’s hair with markers. […]

Right before I started putting out my Rock Star Challenge newsletter, I was absolutely crippled with uncertainty. I find this happens a lot, right before I’m about to do something meaningful – fear will step in and tell me I need to clean out my house, lie on my bed all day, catch up on […]

I feel like buying a house is a little like having a baby – while you’re in it, it’s all you can think / read / obsess / talk about to the point your family draws straws over who has to sit next to you at dinner because HOW MANY TIMES CAN A PERSON SAY […]

I mentioned on Instagram the other day that one of the things I’m working on in my business is being a Professional as laid out in The War of Art, Steven Pressfield’s LIFE-CHANGING book, (you can hear an abbreviated version in this interview with Marie Forleo). Seriously, no more Amateur Hour for me. What does this mean […]
