It’s More Than Throwing Away an Old Pair of Jeans

It’s More Than Throwing Away an Old Pair of Jeans

I like to think I was Marie Kondo before Mario Kondo was Marie Kondo, but lucky for her she wrote that damn book first, so good for her. But! Thanks in part to Marie, minimalism has become the lifestyle du jour, streamlining our closets and junk drawers and knick knacks in an effort to keep only the things that make us happy.

In mine, on a Tuesday we were planning details for a road trip to Montana—car ride snacks, an isolated wood cabin in the Crazy...

8 Apps to Expand Your Knowledge or Learn a New Skill

Anyone who knows me—be it a friend or a family member or someone on our team—can tell you that I’m always seeking out ways to learn new things.

5 Convincing Ways to Apply for a Job Even When You’re Not Qualified

How many colleges did you apply to? I applied to nineteen. Nineteen essays, nineteen copied-and-pasted “When is a time you overcame hardship?” short answers, nineteen rejection or acceptance letters. Entire industries can implode. Two of them I worked in did. So can relationships. In mine, on a Tuesday we were planning details for a road trip to Montana—car ride snacks, an isolated wood cabin in the Crazy Mountains, days to do nothing but be together—and by Friday my future of promises and plans with my partner was gone. Most importantly though, the concept of life itself is proving itself, now...

4 Styling Strategies to Make Your Home a More Joyful Place

If my notes are correct (*glances at checklist*), home is now a place where daytime sweatpants and nighttime sweatpants are a thing (I bid thee good day, jeans), where tie-dye and TikTok are insatiable trends that coexist in viral harmony, and I would be remiss to forget that home is also a place where the limit does not exist for video conferencing (we know and we feel for you). Entire industries can implode. Two of them I worked in did. So can relationships. In mine, on a Tuesday we were planning details for a road trip to Montana—car ride snacks,...

The Organization Method That Improved My Everyday Routines

My calm mornings grind to a screeching halt after I exit the shower. It’s not the kids or work, or even Winnie that interrupts my mindful morning routine; it’s my vanity drawer. Like a majority of the population, I’ve scaled back on my appearance recently. I’ve always been relatively low-maintenance when it comes to beauty and regimens, but within the last few months, I’ve stopped putting much effort into my day-to-day look. Entire industries can implode. Two of them I worked in did. So can relationships. In mine, on a Tuesday we were planning details for a road trip to...

Entire industries can implode. Two of them I worked in did. So can relationships.
