The Comfortable Commute

When I first started working in NYC, I was amazed to see on my Health App on my iPhone that I walk between 3-5 miles per work day! I commute to work on the subway, and I realized that the walk to and from my stops–not to mention the stairs I climb during train transfers–really adds … Read More

Workout Wednesday: Leg Lifts

Happy Hump Day! To celebrate, I’m channeling my inner Sir Mix-a-Lot (yes, I went there) by focusing on two exercises that tone your butt. I like doing 10-15 reps of each of these moves per side. Fit them in after a run or walk, or take 5 minutes to bust them out in your office if … Read More

Windowpane Trousers

Happy Friday! Today I’m wearing a version of my “work uniform.” I typically wear slightly funky separates that work together nicely.

I’ve realized that you don’t necessarily … Read More

Jump Around!

Like Jackie, I also enjoy the comfort and style of a good jumpsuit. Besides “putting a blazer on it,” the other key to wearing a jumpsuit to work is a solid color–save your prints for the weekend! I love the cut of this particular jumpsuit–the button accents and side pockets give it a nice structure … Read More

Jalapeño Poppers

If it was up to me, I would eat appetizers and cheese plates for dinner every night. At restaurants I usually spring for two or three appetizers and call it a meal. I love having a variety of flavors and lots of options to try. These bacon wrapped jalapeños (I stole the recipe from my sister, … Read More

Arugula and Prosciutto Pizza

This pizza recipe may be my favorite dish to make and eat. It’s fast, easy, and low-in-guilt since it comes with a built in salad*!
