Sponsored: Little Changes to Keystone Habits Drive Big Results

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council. I received a stipend to facilitate my purchase for my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Ever since moving to the suburbs from NYC, I will fully admit that my lifestyle is changed. You know that line in Old School, where Frank talks about his weekend plans? “Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we’re {Read More}

Giveaway: Evolution Fresh #3DaysToGreen Juices!

Last Tuesday at this time, I was embarking on my two day juice cleanse. I didn’t love doing it because I prefer getting to eat big (healthy) meals, but I have to admit that the Protein Bar juices that I tried were pretty delicious! Plus, I was excited to get the chance to try a juice cleanse for a short period of time, since I’ve always been curious about what it would be like. (My friend Adam keeps telling me {Read More}

Two-Day Juice Cleanse: My Experience

If you don’t follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you’re probably totally unaware… but for the last 48 hours, I tried my first juice cleanse. I had always heard about the benefits of juicing… but also heard a lot of negative things about people’s actual juice cleanse experiences, so had never been willing to bite the bullet and pay for one. (They can be pretty pricey!) But the Protein Bar, one of my favorite fast-casual restaurants, is launching a new {Read More}

Sponsored: Dunkin’ Donuts and the DD Perks Loyalty Program

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Dunkin’ Brands. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. I’m participating in the Elf For Health challenge this month – though not necessarily being great about doing the task that’s specific to each day. Last week, one of our tasks was to unsubscribe from email listservs that we don’t read, and while I originally thought I was good on that front, Cyber Monday helped {Read More}

Ski Season is Here!

Well, my first Colorado ski weekend is officially in the books. (And by that, I mean I am literally keeping a log of how many days I ski this year and where I go. Come on, did you expect any less from the woman who developed a Thanksgiving Excel?) After taking care of some issues with faulty bindings on my skis, I spent Friday laying low at home, writing this Thanksgiving recap, and going to bed super early. I then {Read More}

Sponsored: Kenwood Vineyards’ Holiday Food Drive for WhyHunger

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Kenwood Vineyards. I received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for my participation. This weekend was a big weekend for wine – but surprisingly, although the Denver International Wine Festival was happening just a few miles from my apartment, that wasn’t the reason for it. Instead, it was just lots of great get-togethers with some great friends. My company’s regional all hands was on Friday, {Read More}

Sponsored: Using Daisy Cottage Cheese to Make a Healthy Indian Feast

Today was a pretty exciting day to be a Coloradan! In previous years, Election Day has never really been a big deal to me, since it’s always pretty clear which way the New York votes were going to go. But a lot of the races in Colorado today were pretty hotly contested, and could make a big difference at the national level in determining the swing of the House and Senate. I was in a training session today and so {Read More}

How to Make a Healthy Pizza (Giveaway Sponsored by Krusteaz Flatbreads)

Krusteaz recently sent me some of their new flatbread mixes, and I was pumped. Flatbread is my absolute favorite kind of pizza, but I’ve never tried making it at home! I tried to plan a pizza party for some friends, but then ended up being sick for over a week and kept having to postpone. Finally, I decided that just because I was sick didn’t mean I couldn’t have pizza anyway! So last night, I treated myself to a solo pizza-and-movie {Read More}

Review/Giveaway: Adora Calcium Supplements

It’s Wednesday, and for me, the day has been dragging. I feel like I need to insert some kind of “you know you’re getting older when” joke here, but what I’m finding is that 6 hours of sleep for multiple nights in a row just does not work for me. Need to remember that when I’m not going to bed when I should! When it gets to be afternoon, I don’t want to put more caffeine in my system. However, I do usually crave {Read More}
