Summer Hairstyles

half up hair styles 1

Guys. It's almost Friday. Let's let our hair down and talk about something girly for a moment, shall we? Like... hair? Seattle had its 12th straight day above 80 degrees today -- and while I will never, ever complain about a Northwest heatwave, I have been trying to find creative ways to pull my hair [...]

1 Second Everday

1 second everyday

Have you heard of the 1 Second Everyday app? Creator Cesar Kuriyama has been recording one unique second of his life everyday for three years. He hopes that by the time he’s 80, he’ll have hours of footage painting an image of his life. Wouldn’t that be a beautiful montage to look back on, for [...]

Happy Birthday Mom

happy birthday mom 2

Today is my mom’s birthday. Of all the things that I feel are really right in my life, great friends and my family are at the top of my list. My mom has been one of my best friends for as long as I can remember, way back to when I was wearing glasses that [...]

New York Doesn’t Love You

new york doesn't love you

I recently read this essay by John DeVore, and it had me laughing out loud. I am happily living in Seattle these days, but after having lived in New York City, anything about the plight of a New Yorker still sparks my interest and strikes a chord. Living in NYC always feels a little bit [...]

Sometimes things don't go, after all, from bad to worse. Some years, muscadel faces down frost; green thrives; the crops don't fail, sometimes a man aims high, and all goes well. A people sometimes will step back from war; elect an honest man; decide they care enough, that they can't leave some stranger poor. Some [...]

Your Top Five

your top five-2

I recently saw this quote by author and entrepreneur John Rohn: You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. And it stuck with me. Who would my five be? Who would yours? And if it's true, is that what I -- what you -- would wish to be true? [...]

Like A Girl

always like a girl

I saw this clip over the weekend and was so excited for the week to start just so I could share it with you guys. Goosebumps. I LOVE when I see advertising moving in this direction. This is how it should look. P.S. Another awesome movement.

miriam adeney quote

My friend Kara sent this quote to me a few nights ago, and it captured exactly how I've been feeling this week. This was a good week. A new colleague started, who I have the privilege of supervising and mentoring. It's technically my first experience being an official 'boss' persay, and it's one that I [...]

Chicken & Mozzarella Rolls

chicken mozzarella rolls 1

Although I like to cook, I’m not a chef by any means. If I’m on my own for dinner, I’m easily satisfied with an egg and toast, yogurt and fruit, or any other simple combo. But when I have people over and want to convince them otherwise for a few hours, I love this recipe [...]
