Healthy Spinach and Cottage Cheese Dip

Healthy Spinach and Cottage Cheese Dip

Nibbles | July 31, 2014

Since starting this whole 9 to 6 thing, I’ve switched to doing morning workouts 3 days a week. I now get to wake up at 6am and half-way sleep my way through a one-hour workout routine. Surprisingly, aside from the fact that my 4pm coffee craving now begins around noon, it’s been sustainable. While I was sharing… read more

Homegrown, Hand-picked Produce

Feeling Inspired: Homegrown, Hand-picked Produce

Lifestyle, Nibbles | July 13, 2014

Last week, I finally had the chance to hop up to Columbus, Ohio where my sister, brother-in-law and fresh-out-the-womb baby niece, Elena, live. Despite the fact that we lost power at sister’s pad for 2 days (thank you, Midwest), it was the best “vacation” I’ve had in — well — ever. I’m not into babies. I don’t googoo over… read more

How to Prevent a Hangover

Lifestyle | July 7, 2014

I’m going to start this post off by giving some very solid advice : Do not, under any circumstances, drink until 2am when you have to be awake at 4am for a 2 hour drive and 7 hours of air travel. “But it’s Saturday night!” I know — I said the same thing and am… read more

Healthy 4th of July Recipes

Nibbles | July 3, 2014

I’m by no means the most patriotic person, but hell I’ll use any excuse to take a Friday off and do some outdoor celebrating — especially Independence Day. This year will make for the perfect Fourth of July: soccer from 11am to 5pm followed by fireworks in downtown Austin. Only two things missing…food and booze, of course! I doubt I’ll be… read more

4th of July Nail Design

4th of July Nail Design

Vogue | July 2, 2014

Full disclosure: I’m calling this post “Fourth of July Nail Design,” but I was actually getting my nails painted to send some love to my USA soccer team in yesterday’s game against Belgium. Whelp, it clearly didn’t work…that’s the last time I use nails to support a soccer team, dammit! (I’m kidding, of course.) Although… read more

7 Best At-Home Peels

Skin Care | June 28, 2014

As a woman nearing the age of thirty (shh, don’t tell), I’ve slowly started revving up my anti-aging skincare routine. For me, using antioxidant serums and retinol products just don’t do enough anymore, hence my decision to incorporate a once-a-week at-home peel into my regimen. True, I see my esthetician for peels on a regular basis. However, I’ve found that my weekly… read more

Nibbles | June 22, 2014

Apologies for being MIA all week — 100%, I blame the World Cup. To make up for my absence, I’m passing along one of my favorite quiche recipes to make your Sunday night cooking a cinch. Quiches are among my favorite dishes to prepare, especially if I’m short on time. You just dump the ingredients… read more

How to Style it up for the 2014 World Cup

Vogue | June 13, 2014

It’s here, IT’S HERE!!! Yea, I’m obviously excited for the 2014 World Cup…maybe even a little too excited. It’s that time of year when my work ethic drops to a gentle roar and my computer is permanently streaming to me sexy, sweaty, unfortunately-not-shirtless soccer men. Ah yes. I call it…heaven. I remember the last world cup —… read more
