When my alarm went off at 6am I laughed. I was having a dream about my boss’ boss just as I was waking up and thought, TGIF indeed. Things I’m looking forward to this weekend include: pasta dinners, farmers markets … Continue reading
Have you ever been given a project and thought, “Where the hell am I gonna start?!” Totally overwhelmed, staring at a lot of emails or piles of paper, you’re nearly paralyzed. Or worse…nothing. Has someone ever handed you a project … Continue reading
So, here’s some #realtalk for you guys. I’m in NYC for work last week, having dinner with my dearest friend Lindsay when I start telling her a story. The weekend prior, I was at brunch with a handsome gent when he asked … Continue reading
I over programmed myself this week and there wasn’t nearly enough rest and cooking at home and sleep. This weekend, I can only hope I manage to get healthy (huge) doses of all three. Oh, and working out. I’ve been … Continue reading
It’s time for some spring cleaning whether spring actually wants to come along or not. Everything from my baseboards to my computer need a little refresh. Design Love Fest has a great series called Dress Your Tech (sample above) with beautiful backgrounds … Continue reading
This question came from Elizabeth Gilbert’s Facebook page earlier this week. She’s at TED 2014 in Canada and posed the question to attendees – and man did it get me thinking! I tweeted it and it’s gone gang busters on … Continue reading
Hi friends! I’m sick with a mean lil’ cold after a bunch of travel and SXSW-ing. No reads for the weekend but here’s an awesome parody of the First Kiss video with puppies and kittens!
Have a wonderful weekend, lovahs!
I always notice that two things make a house or space more cozy: plants (any living green thing) and dogs. A three hour brainstorm earlier this week was made so much lovelier by Nina, a ginormous Great Dane who had … Continue reading
Ch-ch-ch-changes! Work has been a whirlwind of exciting and interesting changes at all levels and all fronts. Amidst the chaos and uncertainty of change I constantly try to remind myself that all this change means opportunities for learning are abound. … Continue reading
Oh man I love pun-y cards! In fact, I love them so much I’ve got a blog post full of em for next week. I can’t wait…hopefully you like it too. Well, lovahs, I hope you are all have a wonderful weekend, ooey gooey Valentine’s style or not. I’m read for a weekend of binge watching House of Cards on my new TV and Roku from my bed. To say I am excited is perhaps an understatement.
I love this piece on getting out of your own way. Every once and awhile I catch myself saying no to myself a lot. It’s unnecessary and ridiculous!
Being a parent is hard. My friend Cecelia’s first Medium post on the topic is great. My fave line: “And I thought, ‘At least she’ll tell her therapist she loved me.’”
Michael Sam’s coming out is sparking a much needed conversation about openly gay players in the world of professional sports. This Texas sports anchor’s speech on the matter is spot. Freakin’. On.
A very cool interactive map that shows all the changes and infrastructure built in Sochi to make the winter games happen.
Facing tough times at work? Design*Sponge’s Biz Lady series has 6 fabulous pieces of advice for overcoming work hurdles.
Blah, blah people hate House of Cards. I love it! I love it in the way you can only love totally hatable characters.
An ode to carbs. Be still, my heart! I love the warm, cozy embrace of pasta carbonara too!
Various authors quoted on fashion. My fave from Simon Doonan: “Every designer needs an iconic look. If the South Park boys cannot make a recognizable cartoon of you, then you need to up the ante. You need a signature flourish, non?”
Um, yeah, why are so many farmers committing suicide?
Can’t wait to read: Women, work and the art of gender judo.
Blah, blah a bunch of people told me the gender wage gap is a myth that’s been debunked when I shared this earlier this year. Don’t wanna hear it, still made me laugh.
I can’t imagine why women would want to turn down casual sex if men are calling them sluts afterward. (Oh and dudes aren’t even trying to be good in bed.)
This little penguin likes science!
I’m closing out the week with a little Latin flavor, so here’s some Ozomotli for your orejas (ears).
