I’m no DJ, but sometimes an absurdly disorganized playlist makes the most sense, right? Most of time I end up listening to Spotify's radio or discover list and find awesome songs along the way. Go dance, relax, and get your jam on with these awesome songs. Continue reading

Ask me anyday, and I’ll most likely have a tech item (or two) that I am lusting over. It’s an obsession that goes beyond window shopping. I look into details on the item and see how I could benefit from that said item, and I convince myself why I can’t live without it. It's kind of a problem. Right now I can’t get over Philips Hue. It’s an amazing LED light system that’s entirely customizable through an app. Continue reading

Robin Wright’s (aka Claire Underwood) clothes are TO DIE FOR. Especially her dresses. That woman can wear a sheath dress like no one’s business. I’ve gathered my favorite Claire Underwood-esque dresses, and had to share my picks. Continue reading

My Valentine’s weekend was not spent sipping champagne with a significant other while getting a present like a white teddy bear holding a red heart. I couldn't have asked for a better couple of days. Friday night was spent with a good friend, and delicious local beer. Saturday was all... Continue reading

Plug in those headphones and give this January Spotify playlist a listen. This mix has a little get-your-dance-on, a little emotional/indie, and a hint of top 40. Continue reading

I tried this recipe from Bon Appetit Magazine (BA): Toasted Spelt Soup with Escarole and White Beans. In my effort to make it winter (at least in my home), I made this dish on a Sunday night and had plenty of leftovers for my lunches at work. Continue reading
