I spent last weekend at an art fair in Los Angeles, ogling the latest offerings from galleries around the country, sipping cocktails with our editorial team, and soaking up the southern California sunshine. The trip was a huge success in terms of networking: from roadtripping down there, to staying out way too late, to wandering […]
I love love love riding my bike, especially when the weather’s warm. There’s nothing like sailing along on a sunny day, soaking up a double shot of endorphins and vitamin D, and then smugly watching drivers suffer increasing amounts of road rage as they circle and swoop for parking. I also love wearing skirts and […]
I guess I’ve been living under a rock my entire adult life, because somehow despite my all-consuming caffeine addiction, I hadn’t crossed paths with mate until a few weeks ago. Since then, I’ve been obsessed. I especially like Mighty Leaf’s Rainforest Mate. It takes my afternoon to whole new heights!

I was one of those over-scheduled, overachieving kids who are pitied, and whose parents are ridiculed, in the popular press. A regular day for my high school self might include school swim team practice in the morning, editing the school newspaper at lunch, and dance team practice immediately after […]
As much as I love the post-workout adrenaline rush, and the general feeling of well-being that you earn through consistently taking good care of yourself, that feeling isn’t usually enough to get my ass off the couch. I’m really good at persuading myself that I’ll work out later, or tomorrow, or . . . you […]
