THE PERFECT TIME TO TAKE A BREAK

This last round of dry January made me realize that I wanted to make this not drinking thing stick longer. On Feb 9th, 2020, I made a choice to take a break from drinking. I did have some drinks after Dry January ended, but quickly after, I was done. I wanted this break to be…

FROM LIVING APART TO LIVING TOGETHER 24/7 IN A QUICK BLINK

When I first set out to write this post, it was going to be all about how our family was doing life long distance because of Coco’s freelance gig. Back in September, Coco got a great opportunity to work out of Manhattan on a project for The Street and Sports Illustrated. He got a call…

WHY I CHOSE TO HAVE A BREAST REDUCTION

In March 2003, I had a breast reduction. I had just turned 23 years old. Coco and I had been dating for two years, and it was about that time that I decided thet I was done carrying around the weight of my breasts- both literally and figuratively. No woman in my family had unbelievably…

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE WORD ‘BALANCE?’

It seems like we are constantly bombarded with the notion of ‘balance’ in some way, shape or form. From the gimmicky to the self-help, we are all on a quest to find that elusive thing called ‘balance’ in some capacity. I ask you, and we’re all going to have different opinions here- is balance attainable?…

HOW A LIFE CHANGE SET THE COURSE FOR MY 2020 INTENTIONS

Say hello to the first blogpost of 2020! We are 14 days in and I hope that so far the year has been treating you kindly, that you are positively vibing, and setting some amazing intentions for the new year. I’ve written in the past how I’m more for bettering oneself and setting intentions, rather…

THE ORGANZA BLOUSE HEARD ROUND THE WORLD

Call it romanticism, call it sheer elegance, call it glamourous. I like to call the organza trend of 2019 (and we will still be seeing it in early 2020), absolutely fabulous! Everywhere you looked, shopped, browsed, there it was- some sort of organza piece begging to be worn and flaunted! I heard you calling, girl,…

‘SHE COMES FIRST’ COULD NOT BE MORE ON POINT

I had every intention of working on this blog on Sunday night so I could post it first thing Monday, because you know, the Instagram algorithm and all. That didn’t happen. Instead, I sat on the couch and watched Christmas movies and the rest of Miss Maisel season 3 because I needed a little self-care….

BASEL OUT. BOXY SUITS IN.

We came. We saw. We baseled, as the kids say. Only I didn’t basel hard. Nope, not at all. I kept it minimal by attending 3-4 events that I wanted to really go to, and that was good enough for me. I escaped on Saturday for a couple of hours to check out the Art…

PRIM AND PROPER FOR THANKSGIVING

Thanksgiving is three days away and I’m already packed and ready for a week of parades, turkey, and shopping with Coco, the kids, and the rest of the fam bam. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am! Not just to hang out with la familia, but to enjoy that crisp, fall…
