Back to life…

september routine

I have a confession: While I had the most wonderful summer — personally, professionally, all of it — it’s the end of August and I’m not crying in my popsicle about how summer is almost over. On the contrary, I’m sorta dying for it to hurry up and be done, so September can kick in. September is when my routine resumes. When I get back to getting my s*&t together and getting things done. There’s something about summer that throws everything off— my regular workouts,…

The no-drama way to unfollow Facebook friends

facebook unfollow

Scrolling through your Facebook feed right now likely feels a little bit like navigating a political minefield—and do you really need to be stressed out by the crazy opinions of people you haven’t seen since high school? (Obvi you want to be exposed to different opinions, but there’s a difference between constructive conversation and constant unhinged social media rants, right?) Or maybe you love engaging in election season commentary but are sick of seeing non-stop photos of your awful ex’s perfect…

I’m on live TV quite a bit, and while it can be a little unnerving (Helloooo, 4 million people!), there’s something so honest about the fact that viewers are in the moment with you, and when the camera stops rolling, you’re totally done. On the flip-side, people on the other side of the camera love that they get to see a real, anything-can-happen version of those they’re watching. Which is why it’s not surprising that Facebook Live, Facebook’s new livestreaming video option, took…

What You Really Need to Know About Pokémon Go

Pokémon Go

At this point, it may seem like everyone you know is either playing or talking about Pokémon Go — from your 6-year-old son to the professional, no-nonsense CEO of your company (really!). Just released in July, it quickly became one of the most used mobile apps in the world. So even if, like me, you have no intention of wandering around outside attempting to capture cartoon monsters (although I have dabbled), you should probably know a thing or two about it.…

Beach tech you should throw in your tote

Beach Tech

A good beach day should be pretty analog. You want to be connected to the warmth of the sun, the feel of sand between your toes, and the sound of crashing waves—not a steady WiFi signal. But that doesn’t mean throwing a few high-tech accoutrements in your tote with your beach towel isn’t a good idea. These gadgets and apps will give your beach day a tech upgrade, and yes, they work just as well for swan float days in the pool, if…
