First and Ten: Alex Woo

Yesterday I shared a little of my story after being inspired by the jewelry and philosophy of Alex Woo.  Today, it’s Alex’s turn!  The founder and creator behind the Alex Woo designs was kind enough to answer a few (or ten!) questions.  It’s all about how she got her start (she actually designed and created her first piece of jewelry at age 8!), what keeps her creative and inspired, and why she loves being […]

My Story, With Alex Woo

Confidence is a funny thing.  We seem to be born with endless amounts but as we grow up and mature, we find so many ways to erode that belief in ourselves.

I’ve become increasingly aware of this trend over the past year as I’ve made a career change and essentially started over.  I had spent over 15 years in a business that, while rewarding in many ways, constantly challenges a person’s self-confidence.  I hadn’t realized how much […]

This is 39

Last week I officially began the final year of my 30s.  It’s all pretty crazy because I still think I’m 28.  So, how do I pull off that mind trick?  Well, it certainly isn’t because of those new lines that have begun appearing on my forehead (they freaking suck).  I think it’s because of the way my life has unfolded so far.

I never thought I would be nearing 40 as a newlywed.  And I certainly never […]

Love Lessons: What About The Children?

This post is part of a series about my own personal dating experiences before I met and married Marc.  I may be a newlywed now, but just a few years ago I never thought I would be anything but single, and I hated it.  When I was struggling I didn’t feel like there was anyone who could truly understand.  I was single, I didn’t want to be single, but I also wanted to be happy […]

Black and Blue

This is definitely not a go-to look for me.  I go back and forth between wanting to really define my personal style and stick with it while also wanting to go for something new and trendy on occasion.  This outfit falls into the latter category for me.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with trying something different.  In fact, I encourage it!  I believe it does help you determine your own personal style.  You’ll never know what […]

Most Popular Acne Products According to You (And Me)

I always thought that once I got into my 20s, and surely my 30s, my biggest skin concerns would be wrinkles and aging.  I also thought that since I made it through my teens with little to no acne issues I would never struggle to get clear skin.

So, yeah, I was wrong on both counts.

I can’t pinpoint the exact time it began, but somewhere in my mid-20s I started getting these incredibly large, red, and painful […]
