How to Break in Jack Rogers Sandals

I tend to get this question emailed to me quite a lot at the very beginning of summer.

I do believe that the pain of breaking them in is worth it though because, in the end, you get a pair of sandals that feel great.

Kate Spade Convertible Bag

As much as I love a super fun and quirky bag, there is something so right about having one go-to bag. The classic bag that you know you can count on to be a staple in your closet.

On My Radar

I’m writing this in the Charleston airport with slightly sunburned shoulders. I’m quite sad about returning to Connecticut, but I miss those pups too much not to return. I had a great couple of days in the south, and it’s always so hard to say goodbye to my friends there. Luckily, it’s a short flight, and…


On Getting Personal

Can we get real about being personal today? I don’t think that sentence makes sense, but I’m not sure how else to say it. The other day, I was getting so frustrated with Instagram. It started with me checking my battery usage on my phone and realizing that I spent far too much time on the app….


Easy Ab Exercises

Okay, I hope you guys don’t think this is a click bait title. I do think that when you break down ab workouts, they’re not that hard. The specific movements are pretty easy to nail down in fact. But, well, when you actually put the timer on and have to do it? It can be really hard….
