Labor Day Reading

labor day reading

I hope you’re enjoying a Rosé somewhere, squeezing the last moments out of summer before boots-and-sweaters season. We’re at the beach in this little Airbnb we’ve become regular renters of— we’re only about 40 minutes from our house but feel miles away. The ocean roars right up under our little apartment at night when the tide is high… it just changes my whole body chemistry. We initially had tons of plans with friends to come out and visit, but people flaked on us…

10 digital ways to go “back to school”, grown-up style

Logitech Master

Every fall you re-live the excitement of back-to-school season via your kids. New teachers, new topics, new textbooks! But just because your classroom days are long gone doesn’t mean you can’t keep tapping into the power of acquiring knowledge. In fact, fall is the perfect time to master something new—like a technical or creative skill, a language, or the facts on a topic that fascinates you. For me, learning is life-long… I’m always looking for ways to challenge myself, conquer new things, master…

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…

A Guide to Snapchat Filters: From Flower Crown to Face Swap

Snapchat filters

Snapchat Filters are silly, meaningless…and sooo much fun. I mean, can you think of a celeb or friend of yours who hasn’t yet posted a screenshot of their dog face (often with actual dog in the shot, of course)? But let’s face it: Snapchat is much easier for 13-year-olds to figure out it than it is for, well, us. Here’s a super simple guide to using Snapchat filters, for when you just need a good laugh in between all of those long…

Everything you need to know about Facebook Live

Facebook Live

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…
