Fat Tuesday: Orangetheory Review

I joined Orangetheory Fitness (OTF) at the end of February, and my friends always ask me a lot of questions/my experience with it. So I figured after a few months, changing my membership to be unlimited, then taking some time off and now getting back into it would make for a good tell all! **…

No Great Story Ever Started with Someone Eating a Salad

I’ve been trying not to complain during the month of May. I realized that a lot of what I put out into the universe was along the lines of I’m tired, or I barely slept last night, or I am so busy at work or where am I going to find the time?! Then I…

Little by little

I watched a video recently where a woman talked about how you can tackle anything if you’re prepared and I sat there thinking, “Well, duh.” But then I stopped and thought about all the times I thought about doing something, and my brain told me, “No. That’s too hard; we can’t do it.” Laying the…

The Roaring Twenties: How we’re all royally screwing it up

I recently read a book by May Jay, Ph.D. entitled, “The Defining Decade: Why your twenties matter – and how to make the most of them now.” In it she discusses how a vast majority of twentysomethings are wasting away their twenties because they think that the “thirty-is-the-new-twenty” culture tells us these years don’t matter…

Rock you like a hurricane

One year ago, I went on an impromptu trip with my best friend Shannon to New Orleans. The two of us had never gone on a trip together and it was nice to plan a last minute trip to see her and see a new town at the same time. Shannon and I decided we…

Rosy Basic B

The weather is finally getting warm, which means that Patio Season is right around the corner! And when the weather warms up the short shorts and cute, flowy summer dresses are seen a plenty on the streets worn by all the basic betches. I mean if you don’t celebrate the start of the warm weather…

In the blink of a… light

Life moves really fast. Some say it moves at the speed of a blink of an eye. For me, the month of March moved at the speed of, let’s say a light moving from yellow to red. Up until March 8, my trusted mode of transportation was a silver 2014 Ford Escape. This was my…

Drunch Bloody

Every great weekend deserves an even better drunk brunch. It’s really the only way to measure if you had a great weekend or not, and no brunch is complete without a Bloody Mary or two… So, without further adieu I bring you an easy and full-proof Drunch Bloody! Ingredients: Vodka of your choice Bloody Mix…

I’m not exactly saying no… but I’m not saying FUCK YES

I’ve taken a hiatus from a lot of things. It started accidentally – I’m not going to say that I had a grandiose plan to take a break from watching TV every night and instead start running again. I’m not going to say that I decided to cut cold turkey and delete all my dating…

January Reads

When did reading stop becoming something we did every summer? I used to look forward to my summer reading list like a giddy school girl, then again I was also the girl who look forward to the first day of school each year because of all the new school supplies… so maybe I was just…
