Cravings

No, not the cookbook by Chrissy Teigen, but I do not-so-secretly want to become her best friend and cook with her in her immaculate kitchen. I’m talking pregnancy cravings… the very real reason that I tried to convince my boyfriend to get me pulled pork and mashed potatoes at 11:30 on a Tuesday night (spoiler alert, I was unconvincing). Pregnancy…

Naming my dog was Easier

There is nothing on this planet that will make you realize exactly how many people you’ve held grudges against like trying to pick a name for your kid. Mackenzie? Nah, she was a little snot. Thomas? I dated a Tomas once, that’s a hard no. Also, Matt and James for the same reasons. One of my best friends dated an…

Coming Spring 2021

Pregnancy is hard. It’s not all, “Oh! You’re glowing.” and “Such a cute bump!” I’m 13-weeks pregnant and the bump just makes me look chubby, the glow is probably some Bio-Oil I accidentally rubbed on my face, and I haven’t had this much acne since I was 13. The acne really is the worst, I remember when I was a…

Virgin Hotels San Fransisco

If you follow me here (or anywhere), you’ll know that there are very few things in this life that I love more than travelling around this beautiful world (my dog, snarky pop culture commentary, and my boyfriend). As part of my travels, I’ve been fortunate enough to stay at some pretty amazing hotels around the world. But very few have…

Treat Yo Self, Today!

Today in honour of their 10th birthday The Ten Spot will be offering FREE (seriously!) quickie mani, pedi, and wax services to everyone who walks in the door from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. The only catch? You only get one totally and completely free service. It’s a tough life, isn’t it? If you’ve never visited The Ten Spot, it’s a…

Pura Vida

When I left for Greece in May, I promised myself that I would travel more, I spent too long focusing on work and not enough on seeing the world. In September I starting planning my next great adventure, Costa Rica 2016. We leave on January 1st, not a bad way to start the new year if you ask me. Pura…

The one Thing I Never Talk About

This blog is my space, I tell a lot of stories here, I talk about a lot of things. I’ve been open about my politics, my not-so-familial relationship with my bio-dad, and my relationships; those are the things I’m not afraid to talk to you about, those are the things I can be strong about. When I write about my…

From it’s Complicated to We’re Over

When the big ex and I broke up in 2009, I was just starting to transition from account executive to community manager; so while social media was relatively new to my professional life I was already deeply involved in the space on a personal level. That break-up was one of the worst I’ve ever been through. He cheated. I was…

It’s Been so Long…

I feel like it’s been forever since I blogged, guys! In reality it’s been two months which is basically forever in the world of blogging. It’s not that I don’t like writing or that I haven’t wanted to keep up with the lovely people who take the time to read my blog it’s that I’ve been incredibly busy. Not regular…

TIFF 2013 – Dallas Buyers Club

The first trailer for Dallas Buyers Club has hit the web today and since I’ve been, not so, patiently waiting for this I felt the need to share it with y’all. What do you think? Will Dallas Buyers Club wow festival goers? Does McConaughey have the acting chops to pull off this kind of story? Personally I’m in camp McConaughey,…
