Start Fresh Faced in the New Year

This post is sponsored by UNILEVER, but all opinions are my own. I am still amazed that the new year is here. I am thrilled, to say the least. I am making little steps and positive changes and keeping my fingers crossed that there is a light at the end of this long tunnel.

Like refreshing my skincare routine so that I am fresh-faced. ...

6 Things to Know When Dealing With An Unreasonable Landlord

In 2019, there were 43 million properties being rented in the US (Source: Statista). Landlord is a catch-all term.

The Groundhog Day Diet: Why I Eat the Same Thing Every Day

For the past five years, I’ve eaten pretty much the same thing every single day. Every morning for the last 1,825 some odd days, I’ve eaten an egg scramble (1 whole egg + 8 ounces of egg whites) + 1 oz of cheddar cheese + 2 Xtreme Wellness High Fiber Low Carb Tortilla Wraps. I’ve had almost 2,000 midmorning “meals” consisting of a whey protein shake (two scoops of whey protein + two tablespoons of olive oil), along with a cup of oatmeal topped with some fruit (usually blueberries, blac...

Stay Sephora VIB or Rouge In 2021 Even If You Didn’t Reach the Threshold

Don’t quote me but I’ve received quite a few different reports that Sephora VIB and Rouge extensions have be made for 2021 without reaching a threshold.

Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme is a nice, lighter dupe of Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy and at a much more affordable price tag! I wanted to feature this in a review of sorts today because so many of you had ordered the smaller travel spray of Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy and proceeded to email asking if I knew of a cheaper dupe because a bottle of Love, Don’t Be Shy will set you back $240. Ouch! Honestly, I do recommend the original because it’s pure marshmallow orange blossom-y joy! It’s super sweet...

If You Could Go Back to the Office, Would You?

If you could return to your pre-pandemic work arrangement right now, would you do it? I conducted an informal email survey last month to hear how 9-to-5 professionals would answer that question. What were their reasons for wanting a more traditional in-office or an alternative working-from-home (WFH) arrangement? I deduced some central themes from the about 100 responses I received. For one thing, people's decisions about whether or not they'd go back were nuanced. Of the approximately 7...

Ten Reasons to Love Dark Neutrals

Dark neutrals — like black, dark blue, charcoal grey, and chocolate brown — hold an important place in most wardrobes, and for good reason.

Black is the most popular dark neutral with my clients, and I see a lot of it on the streets of Seattle. Here are ten reasons that dark neutrals rock. 1.

The Joy of Being (Slightly) Less Productive

“From what I can see, one of the themes of your blog is productivity.” The speaker was a friend, someone I respect. Her words surprised me. Productivity? No! I want to “help people grow in life and ministry for God’s glory, our joy, and the good of others.” At least that’s what I’d written for the purpose of this website. Productivity seemed like much too small a goal. And yet she was right. I was, at that time, posting a lot about how to make the best use of our time. It’s a fine topic, o...
