I don’t think it’s a secret that I have a love affair with faux fur coats. I’m celebrating all it’s fuzzy fakeness in the form of cozy cool coats this winter.
The beach is my happy place. ANY beach. I don’t care if it’s Lake Michigan or the ocean. It’s something about the smells and the sounds that soothe my soul.

We’ve all heard it: If you want to live life to the fullest, research shows you’ve got to let go of regret. I’ve thought about this a lot lately. As a full-time publisher/influencer I spent a lot of time behind a screen. But this year I want to balance my time more. I am trading screen time for face time.

There are so many stereotypes and societal expectations surrounding beauty and intelligence – expectations that make people believe that a beautiful person cannot be intelligent and that intelligent people aren’t attractive.
