Weekend Adventures: Asheville

at

We had the absolutely most amazing time in Asheville, NC!!! So much so that Tyler wants to move there now… ?I booked our Asheville trip pretty last minute. I pounced on the idea of a weekend getaway and had heard lots of great things about the town. Also, I selfishly wanted time with Tyler to myself (aka: no video games!). This was our first experience with Airbnb and definitely not…

Best Beaches in North Carolina

at

If you met me, you probably would never be able to tell I grew up in New Jersey. North Carolina has my heart through and through. Depending on what mood I’m in, I could either drive 3 hours to the mountains or 3 hours to the beach! On the topic of beaches… North Carolina is home to some of the most beautiful beach destinations in the United States. Pack…

On Learning to Love Yourself

at

I have always struggled with confidence —especially my weight. When I was a Senior in high school, I had to take steroids to combat a virus and gained twenty pounds. Since, I haven’t been able to lose the extra-pounds and have carried the weight of low self-esteem around with me. I’ve never been a tiny girl per say. And in a skewed society where beauty is…

Quick & Easy Teeth Whitening for Coffee Addicts

at

In case you didn’t know, I work in television and it’s super important for me to have a bright, white smile on screen! Plus early call times or late-night movie screenings are fueled by coffee. However, coffee can REALLY stain your teeth. Especially if you drink it everyday like me! So, how do I manage to keep my smile TV worthy? My secret is Smile Brilliant. Smile…

Weekend Adventures: Ocean City, NJ

at

I grew up in New Jersey and try to visit my home state every now and then. Until recently, I hadn’t visited New Jersey in over a year so this trip was long overdue! I was only in town for three days but somehow managed to fill the weekend with fun activities. Even though I’m glad I left Jersey, I enjoyed seeing my family, friends, and Wawa. Sheetz…

What I Learned When The Plane Went Down

at

I have flown hundreds of times and I know people who travel 2x’s a week for business. Many people have flying anxiety but I have always looked at it as the easiest and safest way of transportation. In statistics, driving is more dangerous, with more than 5 million accidents in a year compared to 20 accidents in flying.The probability that you will be in a plane incident is…

A-List Inspiration: The No-Makeup Look

at

In the sea of artistic makeup trends we’ve seen on this year’s runways, from electric and eclectic as well as pastel eyes rocked in Milan, to the imperfectly perfect smudged eyeliner in Paris, it has never been more difficult to embrace (and master) a particular makeup trend. Still, shows such as Chloe and Michael Kors have reaffirmed my love of the natural no-makeup look. Seeing Gigi and…

Father’s Day with Harry’s

at

God bless my sweet father! He is surrounded by girls and loves us unconditionally. My dad is my absolute rock and I am so thankful that we have a close relationship. My parents are my BFFs! That’s why it kills me I will be over 300 miles away from him for Father’s Day. There will never be enough words to explain how much my father means to me…

Weekend Adventures: Philadelphia, PA

at

I often complain about my 20-minute commute to work but it takes my parents OVER AN HOUR each day to get from Jersey to Philly. Their commute absolutely stresses me out! It can be difficult and expensive driving in Philly, so most people depend on the speed line or train for transportation. Monday morning, I accompanied my mom on her ride into the city. When I lived up North…
