I can not believe tomorrow is Valentine’s Day!!!! Do you have anything special planned? I feel like the big new buzz word is Galentine, encouraging all the single ladies to get together and do parties which while I’m all about girl power and celebrating your love for your gal pals, there really is no substitute (although besties come close!) for finding a partner in life. I can tell you that as one of the most independent people on the planet, so much of my world would be lost if I couldn’t share it with James and there would be a void without his support. I know the dating scene is hard but with online dating it’s never been more convenient. Although I was shocked to learn that over half a million singles register with EliteSingles every month! Wowza! Are there any relationships left besides mine?


Tuesday was a dream, hello the moment I hugged Joe Biden! But before that epic moment, I got to hang out with Sutton Foster (confession, I’m obsessed with Younger), for the launch of Amopé’s new GelActiv Insoles & Inserts. You may know Amope from their at home manicure and pedicure products ranging an Electric Foot File to moisturizers to keep your hands and toes on point. Now with their new GelActiv Insoles & Inserts it takes everything next level making virtually every shoe — flat to heels, open toe to closed up their comfort game and add extra support. And with fashion week here, I want them all!

Considering the current state of affairs to say I needed a Joe Biden hug was an understatement. Last night, the former VP came out to support his daughter, Ashley Biden for the launch of Livelihood, a socially and ethically conscious apparel company which is partnering with Gilt today to sell a collection of hoodies with 100% of the net proceeds donated to Livelihood’s community development initiatives. 

I’ve talked a lot about my back injury from a few years ago when I herniated a disc and a foam roller has been a staple in my home ever since. As it should be for virtually everyone since we’re all tight somewhere and I have yet to find a tool that rivals it. Until now. Or maybe the better way to phrase it is take it to the next level.
Last week I stopped by Lululemon to learn about the Rove Foam Roller 01 from it’s co-founder + Bespoke Treatment Physical Trainer Daniel Giordano.  The Rove Foam Roller 01 is a durable, versatile and highly effective product that significantly improves the way athletes prepare and recover for physical feats to improve health — anywhere! Unlike the foam roller I have at home, this one lays flat making it ideal for packing and travel and then curls and hook to form the classic foam roller shape. See below the 3 photos of Daniel Giordano and I and how he rolls it from virtually the size of a Macbook air laid flat to the more standard foam roller size when curled.

For the first time in a long time I’m looking to the future with a big question mark. I was considering a big life change. I love blogging but after doing it full-time for so long I thought I might want a change of pace but New York always has a way of opening doors and helping me find new ways to grow. The pull has never been so strong. I was actually supposed to be in LA for a few months but all my plans were set on hold in anticipation of what could be the biggest month for my site! My Olay campaign is seconds away from launching, Glamour Magazine asked me to judge their beauty awards for the 2nd year in a row and I’m filming a project with New Beauty and Amazon StyleCode Live. I also have something in the works with Health, Vanity Fair and Redbook and all of this gives me chills. In a good way, I’m so excited! I’m not a stranger to humbling moments and big collaborations, I’m just not used to them happening all at the same time. I’m not in the habit of comparing myself to other people so sometimes I need to take a step back to realize OMG this is a big deal!

Growth is important, no matter what stage you are in your blogging career. And so are opportunities. The fact that 9 years later this industry finds new ways to surprise and challenge me gives me hope. And hey a winter in New York isn’t so bad… at least I have warm boots. The only Sorel’s I’ve ever owned are the Joan of Arctic style, which I love but are literally for the arctic. They make my feet sweat unless it’s extremely cold outside. The perfect compromise are these Sorel Tivoli II Blanket Boot, and I love them in red!

This season, I’ve been less about wearing one coat and more about layering. It’s getting cold in New York but all the stores and buildings are so overly heated that working in layers is easier than over heating. So I’ve been doing a light jacket with my Nike Down Cape  over everything (they also have a version with sleeves). Bombers have been a big trend, and while I’m not normally a trend girl, somewhere around purchasing my fourth bomber jacket I realized I’m drinking the Kool-Aid pretty hard. My favorite though is this silk bomber jacket and pants from Yummie by Heather Thomson. It’s nice and long and looks really cute as the whole set, and with my new High Top Sneakers from FitFlop. This is my second pair of shoes from FitFlop and they have changed my life. I’ve been looking for a cool shoe brand with an orthopedic sole and these offer so much support and are so comfortable.
