Friday Spotlight: Kate Spade

  When I was in college, I visited New York City for what felt the millionth time. I loved New York for its energy and access to just about everything - including knock off designer bags.

Feeling the Burn

For the last several weeks, things have not been great.

We Must Do Better for Our Boys

When I started this blog, I was most interested in speaking to women and helping them find the motivation and inspiration to push forward in a world that is sometimes unfriendly, and other times outright hostile, to them. Of course, I hoped that men would read this too, but I understood that in naming this… Continue reading We Must Do Better for Our Boys

Friday Spotlight: The Silence Breakers

Working While Grieving

The last few weeks have been really tough. Between hurricanes, earthquakes, political uprisings, and this week's mass shooting in Las Vegas, it feels like there is so much about which to be sad. The world feels so unstable and unpredictable. And yet, despite whatever apprehension we're feeling, we all have to keep going. Work still… Continue reading Working While Grieving

Going With Your Gut

When confronted with a tough decision, people always ask, "What does your gut tell you?" Instincts come naturally, and yet somehow they're easy to ignore when we aren't sure which direction to take. Our heads can override our hearts, which isn't always a bad thing. But in my experience, my gut usually has the right… Continue reading Going With Your Gut

How to Boost Your Self-Confidence

Before our son was born, my husband and I talked about what traits we hoped he would have. We wanted him to be honest and kind, to have integrity, to be smart, to be curious, and to be confident. As someone who has struggled with confidence, I felt this was one of the greatest gifts… Continue reading How to Boost Your Self-Confidence

Why I Didn’t Miss My Son While I Was On Vacation

Ok. That was a lie. I totally missed my son. A lot. BUT, I don't regret leaving him behind with his grandparents while my husband and I traveled through California and Mexico for 10 glorious, sunny days. If you're a mom, and especially if you have young children, you probably feel hesitant to travel without… Continue reading Why I Didn’t Miss My Son While I Was On Vacation

The Power of Journaling

I've been keeping a journal since I was 12 years old. I still have that first Diary, complete with a lock designed to keep out nosy older brothers. Sometimes I'll read through it when I need a good laugh. Not surprisingly, most of my problems revolved around school and boys who I thought were cute.… Continue reading The Power of Journaling

If You’re Being Sexually Harassed, You’re Not Alone

It seems as though there has been no shortage of sexual harassment stories in the news as of late. High-profile cases such as those at Fox News and Uber have made headlines in the last few weeks, but the truth is that sexual harassment is far more common than we like to think. Sadly, most… Continue reading If You’re Being Sexually Harassed, You’re Not Alone
