​​Heading into the new year, travel will again be at the top of my list of resolutions. I try to make travel a priority every year but inevitably, I always end up craving more adventures. One adventure I do always manage to squeeze in is a sunshine-filled girls trip with my best friend from college. As she's based in LA, and I'm in New York, it's become a necessity to meet for a vacation annually. In 2...

About five months ago, convinced by a handful of friends, I joined ClassPass. I figured what better way to motivate myself to workout than with mandated classes and penalty fees for skipping? Well, somehow between the holiday and a mini vacation last month, I managed to get to the end of the cycle with 25 credits remaining in my ClassPass bank. Realizing this at work on the last day of the cycle, without gym clothes, I needed...

Ah, Black Friday -- nothing like a holiday designed to give thanks to make Americans a bunch of shopping heathens within hours. Now, while I am not a fan of leaving my place in my post-turkey coma fat pants at midnight, I can’t resist a good online Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal when gearing up for the forthcoming holiday season. This weekend, there are a bunch of great options to score, from now through Monday to kickstart yo...

Like any other millennial living in a big city, I could go on and on about excuses for why I’m so damn busy. It’s my job, it’s the holidays, it’s that friend visiting from out of town. It’s always something. And it’s always something that has managed to allow me to validate actions such as ordering takeout, skipping a workout, or not making my bed in the morning. This "hectic lifestyle", has also been the primary excuse for my...

And just like that, the summer’s nearly over and I’ve hardly had one second to breathe, let alone write. Yep, this year alone has been a whirlwind, but Summer 2K18 has all but disappeared without a spare moment. For me, this is due to being on the programming team for BlogHer, which this year happened to fall on August 8th and 9th -- not exactly ideal when you want to travel in the summer.

I was able, however, to get a lon...

As I’ve mentioned in prior posts, I am somewhat of a beauty addict (just check out my "shelfie" to the right). I admit to spending a large sum of my time scroll

Happy Galentines Day to all my ladies out there! As a woman who has spent many-a-Galentines Day indulging in self-obtained treats and Kate Hudson classics, I want to address an issue that has been top of mind recently: The extremely apparent and abrupt demise of the Romantic Comedy.

Now, as many of you know, I am a huge movie fan. In fact, before I ended up in digital media, I was convinced I was going to be the next badass fem...

Five years ago, if anyone asked me where I pictured myself at 24 years old, I would have hands down said, Probably struggling to work on some show or movie in Los Angeles. Fast forward to my 24th birthday, and I am working at a women’s media company in New York City.

Today, I am still asked rather frequently why I would ever leave LA, as a native Californian and UCLA alumna. These questions most often arise during particularly...

With the chaos of the holidays behind us, I finally feel like I have a second to share some updates...

2017 saw a great deal of change in my world--some parts wonderful, some parts extremely painful. In the past few months, I achieved some milestones in my career that I am very proud of, I moved into a new apartment with two good friends in Manhattan, and welcomed a handful of positive personal changes including health improvem...
