Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day Weekend

We’re off to Malibu for the weekend to enjoy a little beach air and surf. This is the third year in a row that we’ve rented this adorable beach cottage on Airbnb and I’m so excited to drop my bags, run down the steps, and put my feet in the sand for three whole days. I can hardly believe this long weekend is finally here: It’s going to be JUNE next week, and then I’ll have a 6th grade graduate and ZERO…

Beating Jet Lag

beating jet lag

Do you experience jet lag when you travel? It’s just about the worst: You arrive at your destination, many time zones away from home, and all you want to do is sleep.

Tech For The Funnest Summer Ever

Best Summer Tech: Jenny Copper Nest Thermostat

It’s still a bit chilly in Los Angeles, but any day now the heat will be here to stay and I’m already imagining how good summer will feel on my skin. I’ll be spending as much time at the beach as humanly possible, and the hubs and I just locked down an incredible anniversary trip to Hawaii that I am counting down the minutes to (it’s our 20th anniversary… I’m sorry how did that happen?). All that, plus a lot…

The Smart Carry-on Suitcases You Need for Summer Travel

Travel Hacks: Avis

Now that spring is officially here, I’m starting to make summer travel plans. So far, I have our annual pilgrimage to Coachella booked, and our Memorial Day jaunt to Malibu on lock with a few more work and family trips that are TBD. While I love to travel, it does inevitably end up having some stressful moments (like navigating the TSA line – or any line – with kids in tow). Thankfully, tech is keeping up with the game. Last year, I shared…

Sprouts International Housewares Show

Hi guys! Just a quick note to say, Hello from Chi-town! I’ve been at the International Home & Housewares Show all weekend, and today is the last day. It’s SO big.

An Open Letter to Car Companies

Volvo Car Technology

Dear Car Companies— Would you mind terribly if I was frank for a moment about something? Because I’ve got beef with you, and it’s time I got it off my chest. My world is getting smarter— ridiculously so, in fact. I’ve got lights that turn themselves on when I enter a room, a virtual assistant who can read me the news headlines, a television that can find me something to watch from an infinite amount of channels, and a cellphone…
