How to Cope Through Periods of Growth

Times of growth can be scary. But they can also be some of the most exciting and fulfilling times of our lives. Whether it's landing a new job, having a baby, or moving to a new city, major life changes challenge us to learn more about who we are and who we are becoming. Tackling IVF as a single woman has pushed me to grow in ways I didn't even know were possible. Becoming a mom is a daunting task for anyone, especially when you're doing so outside the norms set by society. And between the constant doctor's appointments and the carefully-timed hormone shots, there have been times that I've felt like I'm no longer in control of my life or my body. But instead of running from stress and uncomfortable [...]

What to Wear on a Date (Since They’re a Thing Again)

There's one thing I'm truly looking forward to as the world slowly but surely returns to normal: dates. One thing I'm not looking forward to is having to decide what to wear on a date. Choosing the perfect date outfit can feel like more of a daunting task than actually going on the date. The best outfit for a date depends largely on where you're going and what you're planning to do. While you'll certainly want to look your best, you'll also want to pick something practical for the setting and activity. You'd much rather spend the date getting lost in your potential BF's eyes than getting distracted by slipping bra straps and impractical footwear. But deciphering what outfit you should wear on a date can be easier said than done. [...]

When it comes to travel, there are a handful of carry-on essentials I pack for every trip. No matter the length of the flight or the duration of the trip, these beauty products, tech accessories, and self-care staples are always the first things on my carry-on packing list. And after this, they'll surely be at the top of yours too. So, where exactly am I jet-setting off to this time?

8 Superfoods to Add to Smoothies

The word superfood gets tossed around pretty often these days. And while fancy-schmancy adaptogen powders and superfood smoothie add-ins are great and all, you can get many of the same benefits (and save a good deal of money in the process) by singling out their key ingredients and adding them individually to your smoothies, morning coffee, or breakfast juice. When it comes to superfood powders, much of what you're paying for is just a healthy-sounding product name and Instagram-worthy packaging. So to help you boost the nutritional value of your daily drink without breaking the bank, I've rounded up the best superfoods to add to smoothies. Most of these smoothie ingredients are surprisingly affordable and can be found on the shelves of your neighborhood grocery store. And when all else fails, [...]

Fall 2021 Fashion Trends You’ll Wear Forever

The past year has undoubtedly changed the way I dress, and I'm sure it's changed the way you do too. After spending most of last year in stretch pants, it feels wrong to go back to the uncomfortable and often impractical clothing we were wearing before. While I've certainly enjoyed getting dressed in "real clothes" again, the outfits I've been picking out feel more easy-going. These days I find myself choosing boyfriendy button-up shirts over frilly blouses and lived-in Levi's 501s instead of skintight skinny jeans. I'm also thinking about the social, economic, and environmental impacts of my wardrobe. Why waste your money on low-quality fast fashion pieces and short-lived trends when you can support your favorite local boutiques and fill your closet with clothes you want to keep forever? That's why [...]
