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 […]

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 […]

The $14 Item That Changed Everything

I know, I know, that’s quite a headline.  Have I found a cure for poverty and hunger?  (If so, how didn’t we figure this out sooner since it’s only $14?)  Is it a way to buy unlimited items of clothing that will in no way affect your budget? (Now that would be nice.)  Or maybe world peace is finally now upon us!  (Again, for 14 bucks we should have been on this earlier.)

Yeah, it’s none of […]

Turning Anger Into Action

For 16 years of my adult life I wasn’t allowed to have a public opinion.  Choosing a career in journalism—even as a sports reporter—meant presenting myself as unbiased at all times.  Each of the employment contracts I was required to sign always had a section detailing all the ways in which I needed to keep my thoughts to myself.

But that time is over.

For the first time I am able to say exactly how I feel and […]
