10 things NOT to say to people with curly hair!

  I was born bald. Like my own baby bottom. I didn’t grow hair enough for bows until around age three. Until then, my mom would tape little bows on my hair for photos. And constantly tell people I was a GIRL. Not a boy with pierced ears. I’ve more than made up for it though. Today my hair is this big, in your face, curly thing that causes people to say, think, and do things to it — and to me — that the average haired person has probably never encountered. It’s cool. I’m old now and I get…

What To Wear To A Conference: the recipe for the perfect outfit combos is so simple!

  Over the years I’ve been to my fair share of marketing and advertising conferences. They’re a great way to freshen up your knowledge, network despite my introverted tendencies, hear expert speakers, and catch up with friends and colleagues in the industry. This year I’m headed to Social Media Marketing World 2016 with a few co-workers. Earlier this week, we spent an hour pouring over the lengthy and detailed agenda, which is chock full of digital and social offerings, tracks dedicated to content marketing and community management, and PLENTY of networking opps. As we were bookmarking our last session selections, this inevitable…

5 Fashion Week Styles For Real Life

  Every year during New York Fashion Week I sit at home and flip through magazines and websites scowling at the photos. Rarely is there ever anything appropriate for people with a normal lives consisting of working at a desk, shopping at a grocery store, going to their kids’ schools for meetings and events, and to…like…drop off the lunch they left sitting on the counter. Again. Not to mention the price. I don’t know about you, but the car I drive doesn’t cost as much as some of the items I’ve seen models strutting down the cat walk in. But, I do…

How To Survive Your Tween Girl's Party: 5 Tips!

  There’s nothing my outgoing tween daughter loves more than to be surrounded by friends. She loves people, and being around them energizes her—as is the case with most traditional extroverts. I happen to be an introvert. This doesn’t mean I’m shy, mind you. It means that being around lots of people for a long period of time—even family and my very best friends—drains me. I need alone time to recharge and get energized. When it comes to party planning, hosting, and everything that goes along with that, the mere thought of it all makes me exhausted. Couple that with the…

My Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Polish Fail!

  I’m going to start this post off by saying that I’m a huge Sally Hansen nail polish fan. That’s important to get out up front since, obviously, the title of this post might imply otherwise. And, I’ll point out that the use of “My” in the title was, most certainly, intentional. Of all the affordable nail polish options I’ve tried, Sally Hansen is by far the best when it comes to lasting, chip-free color. My go-tos are Insta-Dri®, Complete Salon Manicure™, and Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear® because they’re inexpensive (between $4 and $8 a bottle at the local…
