Happy Black Friday, friends! I'll add them as I find them, but there's lots of Black Friday sales to be found online today. Who's out shopping today? I always think the idea of going out on Black Friday is fun but when I actually go out, I end up wondering why I'm standing in the long lines when I could be doing everything online? Athleta - … [Read more...]

Too good not to share! I continue to love using Beautycounter and they don't do site wide coupons all that often. They launched a promo today for Black Friday - 15% off and free shipping on orders over $50 - it runs today through Cyber Monday while supplies last. (Which means, get what you want while it's still in stock!) They have some awesome … [Read more...]

Lately it feels like you can get just about anything in a monthly subscription box: jewelry, groceries, hair accessories, pet toys, clothes and more. I have to admit to feeling a little oversaturated with it all. Butin the name of editorial sacrifice, I decided to go out on a limb and try Winc, a monthly wine-subscription service that everyone's … [Read more...]

Hey guys! Hard to believe Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Time, it keeps plugging on, doesn't it? It's been awhile since I shared regularly but this thaw time infographic I put together popped up when I was on Pinterest the other day and I remembered that we've had some cool Thanksgiving content over the years here. I decided I'd do a … [Read more...]

A couple of years ago, I had a heart-related scare when I was running Broad Street, a local 10-mile race here in Philadelphia. You can read more about it here, but the short version was this: I had chest pain starting around mile 7 that continued until the end and was still feeling off for days after the race. My doc discovered I have a heart … [Read more...]

My latest read was this book, Circe. I saw it listed somewhere along the way and thought it seemed up my alley as I always loved Greek Mythology as a kid. It was a great read! Slow at times but compelling and interesting. Circe is a nyphm, the daughter of Titan Helios, the God of the sun. She's a lesser God and in traditional lore she most notably … [Read more...]

Hi friends! It's most definitely been awhile! Life is busy, as always. I've been working around 30 hours a week in my day job, on top of having two active kiddos and a busy family schedule. 6th grade and 9th grade for our guys now.It's hard to believe that the baby who inspired me to start this blog is now in high school. We moved both of our … [Read more...]

The Amalfi Coast was hands down the most beautiful place I have been. We stayed in an apartment style hotel that overlooked all the mountains and water. These pictures do not do it justice! One day while we were on the coast, we took a ferry over to Capri. Once we got there we rented a private boat that took us around the island. The water was … [Read more...]

Cute arm candy is always my favorite part of jewelry! If you ask my kids or my husband what piece of jewelry I like the best, they would definitely all know to say bracelets because I'm always buying and trading up my jewelry. Lately I'm into thread/rope bracelets and I wanted to show you guys ones I wore to an evening out this weekend! They are … [Read more...]

You know it's a good book when you finish and you're sad it's over. I'm still reeling and thinking about Moloka'i, the historical book I finished last night. The book is set in the early 1900s in Hawaii, during one of the largest medical quarantines that ever happened in the US. (leprosy) The story follows Rachel Kalama, a 7 year old girl who … [Read more...]
