2014 begins with the end in mind.

Eat less sugar. Buy a house. Stop cussing. Get in bikini bod shape. Complete a marathon. These are few of the New Year’s resolutions I’ve made in years past. I actually completely stopped making resolutions entirely because I felt they weren’t genuine and like most others’ resolutions, are very shortly lived. It wasn’t until I […]

So a job, a career and a calling are sitting at a table.

So here I am, sitting in my twelfth interview in the past four months, at a small but beautifully designed agency. I’m chatting with a young-ish owner about the various businesses he’s got his hands in, in addition to the one I’m interviewing for. Our conversation feels more like two people chatting over drinks than […]

Little miss busy’s 10 tools to manage life better

People almost automatically respond “I’m so busy but doing good!” when asked how things are going. I’m definitely guilty of it myself. Ironically, I actually mean it when I say it.

You know you’re thirty when____.

I’ve been paying attention to my language and action a lot lately. Why? To see if I’m exhibiting signs of my age. Sadly, I noticed a change beginning when I was 29. My daily priorities were changing. My crazy nights out were being swapped for early bed times and rested mornings. The filters by which […]

Teenage angst & young love…the stuff of classic movies.

I was cuddled up like a little cat next to my handsome boyfriend one night, watching the classic movie Rebel Without A Cause, starring the greatest bad boy of all-time, James Dean and the doe-like Natalie Wood. If you haven’t seen the movie, please get in your car (after you finish reading of course) and drive […]

Well, hello there thirties.

I think a “Congratulations!” is in order first. I mean, come on, we have made it to the all allusive thirties for crying out loud. I remember meeting friends of my parents or watching people on TV in their thirties and it just seemed so far away and unknown? Then one day, with the snap […]
