Coachella for Basics.

Countdown to Coachella is ON and so I had to bring on a podcast guest who is an expert in all things #Chella. I met the gorgeous Michelle – @michelleinfusino – the last time I was in LA and shot with her for a day. We quickly hit it off and I have been stalking her ever since. Beyond her gorgeous Mila Kunis looks, she has one of the sweetest personalities and little did I know before I interview, she is wise…

How I Prep for Travel

OK I am kind of panicking as I write this. I have three glorious weeks of travel coming but with that comes the anxiety and stress of getting everything set up to go, go, go. Because I’m a Type-A crazy (let’s get serious – I believe these are all excellent qualities) I of course have a system that I’ve put in place to help manage the many things that need to get done and help me take off with ease.…

But we still get down to it and…

April Beauty Faves

Well we’ve made it to April and despite the weather NOT GIVING A SH*T, here we are. And even though it’s not as warm as I’d like, the season is changing and my skincare routine needs to follow suit. I recently started using a few new beauty products (hair, skin and body) so I’m sharing the brands and why they appeal to me. There’s a lot to unpack below, so stick with me because there are a ton of goodies…

Women Making Waves: Chrissy Lundgren

It’s not secret that I love a good women crush. Whether it’s on the red carpet, a workout warrior or just my latest obsession, I am here for the ladies.

Why Aren’t You Binging These Shows?

That is a misleading title, since you might very well be binging these shows as we speak. If you are, THE TITLE DOESN’T APPLY TO YOU OK?! Great. I’m glad we cleared that up. Now the reason we’re really here: I had a great weekend. Like, got sh*t done but also lazed around and caught up on all my stories, aka my TV SHOWS. And I realized, we’ve never discussed what I’m binging and what I feel it’s my public…

My Weekly Workout Routine

I am by no means a fitness expert. On a good week you could consider me a fitness enthusiast though let’s get one thing straight. I love working out. But I will always choose rosé over bent over rows. That being said, I do my best to stick to a workout routine that fits my lifestyle and incorporates exercises/classes that I truly enjoy, thus increasing the likelihood that I’ll attend. Below I’m sharing my typical workout routine for the week and…

St. Patrick’s Day Diet

It turned out to be a surprisingly busy week and because of that I literally didn’t bake or cook a thing. My tummy hurts and it’s only going to get worse after a few green beers this weekend (and the subsequent drunk eats that occur afterward). I am hoping to get some treats under my belt this afternoon and in the meantime, I’m hoping you get inspired by my favorite flavors of the season from some of my favorite online…

Templated Stories

Ok today’s post is a quickie because I just want to share these fun little templates I made for Instagram Stories. All you have to do is save these bad boys and then you can upload and fill them out for your Stories. I have LOVED getting to know people through these templates and appreciate everyone who tags me in their completed versions. Have F U N and let me know what other templates you want to see, x.…

Relationship Advice From The Bachelor

Remember in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, when Kate Hudson’s editor is like, “A what not to do.” This is kind of that type of post. Since we didn’t have The Bachelor franchise gracing our televisions last night, they still wanted to be top of mind, so E! News dropped a little #BachelorNation story before the evening was up.. Turns out Ashley and Kevin, winners of the Bachelor Winter Games, broke up. Ya, like a month ago. So we’ve all…
