I’ve been selected as one of Lean Cuisine’s Phenomenal Ambassadors! I will be working with their team, and several other bloggers, all summer. If you run a 10K, does it discount the number of 5Ks you’ve completed in the time leading up to that new milestone? If you get a promotion, are you still proud of the work you accomplished in the previous roles? I find that with each rung… Read more

This post is in partnership with GoldToe®.  Here’s the scenario, you’ve just plopped down on the couch after a long work day.

I’m usually drinking tea when I sit down to read fellow blogger’s round-up posts and so, Tea + Light Reading seems like a good title for the… Read more

This post was sponsored by Palm Breeze through their partnership with POPSUGAR. While I was compensated by POPSUGAR to write a post about Palm Breeze, all opinions are my own. Somehow it’s May already. I can’t quite put my finger on where April went, but I’m looking forward to all that May holds! One of my favorite things about May (and summer in general) is the sunshine. With daylight savings… Read more
