The Check In

It’s been a while since I’ve checked in. I had an amazing trip to Italy but it’s good to be back home without any major travel plans for a while. I’m working on the travel guides from our last trip and you’ll see them here on the blog over the next couple of weeks. I can’t believe we’re almost halfway through October already.

I recently read about one woman’s decision to have a double mastectomy at age 31. It was a very emotional read but a timely one during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

You have your mind made up and you put yourself out there for a promotion. What happens when you don’t get it? It can seem like an awkward situation but it doesn’t have to be. Some solid advice in this article.

Smoothies are a great way to get nutrients in on the go. Here’s a list of smoothie recipes created by a nutritionist with some seasonal flavors recreated like caramel apple pie and pumpkin pie.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to shop the Atlantic-Pacific x Halogen collection. Is it October 22 yet?
