Style Tip: Find Your Uniform


When I was in my 20s, I was totally that girl who tried on 15 outfits before work every morning and lived in a clothes-strewn jungle of indecision. By noon I hated what I was wearing half the time and longed to go home and change. This crippling ambivalence about my wardrobe did nothing for my self-confidence (not to mention my work ethic).

How to Deal with the Holiday Induced Blues

When I was younger the winter holidays were my absolute favorite time of the year. There always seemed to be a sense of cheer that mingled perfectly with the crisp air.

Screen Time for Grownups

I don’t consider myself a helicopter parent by any means, but I do closely monitor my kids’ use of screens and the internet. They don’t have TVs in their rooms, have limited access to social media, and are required to turn over their phones before bed at night. I think my husband and I are doing an excellent job of navigating this new world of media and technology, so good on us.

Relax, Don’t Do It


Let me tell you a story. Once upon a time there was a young woman who loved nothing more than lying on the couch, enjoying three-hour brunches and day-drinking with friends. Her apartment was a disaster, but who the heck cared?
