The Question Of Rest Days

I recently worked out seven days in a row at my local barre studio. And that got me thinking about today’s post: the question of rest days. This is never something that I do. I aim for five to six workouts a week, and I definitely need at least one day off. There’s such a

Snowy Day Oatmeal

It’s officially winter, it’s officially the holiday season, and Gilmore Girls is officially on Netflix. Yup. Just had to get that in there. This blog is officially a spoiler-free zone because a.) I hate spoilers and b.) I have been spoiled way too many times. I have never seen a Pretty Little Liars midseason or season finale without finding

The worst part about having food allergies? That would be when you’re tired and really want some take-out. That’s where this Sweet and Sour Salmon comes in.

Chatting Work Life Balance With Bloggers: Part 1

Work life balance is a subject that I find super fascinating. As a writer and editor, I work for myself and have figured out how to be productive, find motivation daily, and, yes, take some time off, too. But it’s not always that simple and I know I’m not the only one who struggles to find
