Fire Engine Red

***Make sure you hop over to my IG account to win a free pair of Hudson Jeans if you haven’t already. Remember that post about how I made zero progress towards anything positive during 2015? If you missed it, you can read it here. The other day I was reflecting on my goal for 2016, […]

Stolen Identity

I have a long standing relationship with my bank. I won’t give you the name, but it may rhyme with Shells Shargo. In terms of customer service, they are out of this world. Almost over the top at times. I walk in after a long day at work and they always want to greet me […]

Sympathy, Stuart Weitzman and Silk

After announcing to the entire world that I was going to Tunisia, the entire thing fell apart. It’s been a week of heart-break, as the trip is something I’ve dreamt about for years.

Dodgeball

I hope your Valentine’s Day was amazing. I spent mine with 400 kids at Jump City and watching Kung Fu Panda III. Don’t be jealous.

Cheers!

I’ve briefly mentioned before that my step-dad and mom are currently raising an adorable toddler, Gracie. I’ve found it so intriguing to watch my parents, parent. It’s almost as if my mom and I have done a complete role reversal. She’s over there changing diapers and putting in pig-tails and I’m kicked back living as […]

Honeymoon

I love the honeymoon period that accompanies anything new. New love, new job, new hobby and even a new time of year. When the first snow falls, I rejoice at the idea of brushing the dust of the boots I haven’t wore in 8 months and bundling up near a fireplace with a cup of […]

Define “Retreat”

It’s always a good day when you get to wear whatever you want and be away from the office.¬†Even though the staff “retreat” didn’t include a vacation destination or poolside cocktails, I did learn a lot about myself and my coworkers…any by “coworkers”, I mean “myself”. With the trustworthy Meyer-Briggs inventories in hand, my coworkers […]

Frat Boy

Ten months ago I found myself living alone for the first time in two years. Although initially nervous about the transition, I adapted quickly and have fully embraced living in an environment similar to that of a 20-year-old frat boy.
