What are your every day, must-reads, online or off?  Every morning I sit with my cup of coffee and grab my tablet. I have two online personas, work and blogging, so my must read is everything on my Feedly reader. It’s all there- work, humor, world events, street style, etc.


What’s you most recent awesome accomplishment? I recently celebrated my first year as a business owner.

Why is it important to love our bodies? There is so much out there that make young girls feel insecure of their bodies, and I want to relieve my daughter of that negativity. I need to be a positive role model for her.

If you could give your 16 year old self advice, what would you say? Wear sunscreen, mind your posture, don’t sweat the small stuff, adults don’t have all the answers, stay positive, be nice, and buy stock in Microsoft.


Do you have a favorite quote? If so, what is it? Not necessarily favorite, but powerful all the same- ”Children must be taught how to think, not what to think” – Margaret Mead

Your perfect day. What would it look like? Two cups of coffee in the morning, a few hours of reading, eating a beautifully prepared lunch at a restaurant, shopping with friends and finding the perfect outfit on sale, a late afternoon nap, a classic cocktail, a BBC episode with Matthew MacFayden, and an extra large serving of Tiramisu.
