How I Motivate After a Holiday Weekend

I’m sure that some of you may be convinced that the best way to motivate yourself back into the swing of things at work and in life after a long holiday weekend is by getting up real early for a workout, drinking 3 cups of bullet proof coffee before you head out the door, and by making sure to schedule a client dinner on Day 1.

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails.

My look will be on point that day, inspired by the season! 🙂 I’ve been feeling serious un-done vibes when it comes to my hair lately, and with Earth Day just behind us and the flowers in my yard coming in to full-bloom I’m feeling very much like a woman looking to embrace natural beauty inspired by the season.

How To Cure Your Hangover For Your Big Meeting

Everyone knows they should drink their body weight in water when they get home from a sloppy night out, drink some coffee the next morning, and gorge on greasy pizza. But what about the tricks of the trade that are lesser-known aids for helping quell a hangover that is so impending that the Homeland Security Advisory System switches the danger zone from orange to red (sorry, guys – the times are a’troubling me)? Here are my personal tricks that truly, honestly help me move through a hungover place to a less hungover place when I wake up at the crack of dawn after a night out, stumbling around my room looking for something to save me from myself…
