Become The Light At The End Of The Tunnel

“You are not required to set yourself on fire to keep others warm.” We all know that girl. She’s bubbly, happy and doing it all with a smile on her face. When spoken about, people leave you with “isn’t she the greatest!?” [Cue eye roll]. Being the “light” aka the superhuman, conquor-the-world, kind of person isn’t easy. But how do some people figure out how to do it? It can’t be impossible. I think a part of all of us wants to become the light instead of sitting in the tunnel… or to at least get a piece of it.…

Top 5 Commuter Shoes That Won’t Be Embarrassed To Wear

No matter how much I eat… my shoes still fit!  I’m pleading to you. PLEASE retire your dirty old white sneakers and those moccasin slippers that really shouldn’t be worn outside the house.

The Westchester, a Simon Mall, has always been my one stop shop. It also holds a special place in my life. Growing up in Westchester it was one of the first places my friends and I were allowed to roam free, unchaperoned, for a few hours.

All I Ever Wanted Was Everything – Twenty seven

Hello, twenty-seven… If I wrote this post when I planned to (last weekend) it would have been exceptionally different. Crazy what a day makes, huh? Did I keep my promises to myself and others?  How much did I grow personally and professionally?  Is this where I want to be? Is this where I thought I’d be?  Have I challenged myself enough?
