I love following interior design accounts online and watching design shows on TV, but I always have one major complaint: they never show how to make homes livable. Have you noticed that not one “after” home on HGTV includes a TV mounted on the wall?! I can’t speak for you, but I have a TV […]

“I never want to run my own business.” I used to say those words. Regularly. Crazy enough, I now run two…and manage to half-way maintain a full-time job… I’d say that’s a lesson in never saying never. But a couple weeks ago, I was sitting in a training program at my law firm regarding a […]

The dust is finally starting to settle on my big move into my first place as a homeowner (jk – dust is still flying everywhere because renovations are def still happening), but thankfully the master bathroom is actually done done, folks.

My most favorite pupper turned two last week, and I’m still all in my feels about it. Although many of you know I’m on a committed journey of preserving and prioritizing my self-care & well-being, probably very few of you know that this journey all began the day I brought home my sweet Ms. Mila […]

First Job: Test Market for Adulthood Unfortunately, it’s clear that my first job was a test market for how to be an adult. Is that everyone’s experience or just mine? My first gig was in a large law firm in NYC. From the very first day, I clearly stood out for being one of a […]

I really try to minimize risk, but somehow, I convinced myself that cutting my own hair with scissors in my tiny NYC studio apartment one Sunday night was the right idea. I was only 8 months into my very first Corporate America gig, but the pressure of daily assimilation and code switching was beginning to […]

Boundaries are Healthy & Appropriate It’s true. Some jobs and professions are inherently more stressful than others. But even in those high pressure environments, you have a lot more control over your stress and temperament than you probably think.
