If you’re curious about the inner workings of this blog, which I genuinely do not know why you would be, because wondering how this blog works is probably the equivalent of wondering how aglets work. You won’t wonder, you kinda just see the results. In my pursuit of living more and doing less (crazy things), I’ve told myself that I gotta switch it up on … Continue reading the short list, volume 1.
I was doing some thinking about me, my life, and all the things adjacent to in. When you work in philanthropy and altruism, those things can be hard to do. I think, admittedly, since I came out of the womb, I have always been “doing the most.” My friends, to this day, still laugh, look at my, and brassily say, “girl, you’re doing the most.” … Continue reading doing the most

I am someone who can freak out and be an anxious mess. I have a coworker who is very earthy, calm and zen, the absolutely epitome of a yoga namaste slay kinda mom. She literally carries essential oils and probably knows emergency breathing techniques. Once upon a time, I was having one of these freak outs before a big meeting (an annual review, and if … Continue reading emergency chill fam in an instant
GLAMGLOW. Just the name of the company sounds like a freaking superhero. Although I love many, many of their products (a listicle post is coming at you guys), one product that is extra special is their GLAMGLOW Super Serum.
