Since it’s summer, I’ve been walking around totally barefoot. No barefoot shoes. Just toes in the grass, on the dirt, whatever. I took an hour walk with the dawg barefoot. 30 minutes at the park. Being totally, completely, 100% barefoot is AWESOME.
Last week, I got the incredible opportunity to join Ben & Jerry’s Millennial Advisory Board. We flew out to Vermont for three days of training, talking, and LOTS of eating ice cream. Here are a few photos: As if I didn’t already love Ben & Jerry’s, this experience cemented their awesomeness. The [...]

In one of the most ridiculously awesome ideas ever, CINCO has introduced a Cincominder app for the iphone. What does this app do? Why, the app reminds fans when it’s five o’clock—the perfect time to enjoy a great martini!—with the [...]

My earrings benefited greatly from a picture frame holder (pictured below), but my necklaces, bracelets, and scarves are more trouble. Finally, I found the perfect solution!
