Read 10% Happier by Dan HarrisI first learned about Dan Harris and his book in The Minimalists’ documentary, Minimalism.

Is it still cool to have an Instagram aesthetic?
Working in PR, I spend a lot of time studying and working with influencers (what we used to call bloggers and thought leaders).

Y’all. I survived the spring. It’s officially summer vacation 😎 (Of course, “summer vacation” to me means working one job instead of two, but still.)

I also had a ‘vacation hangover’ that made it really hard to get back into our routine – I guess that’s what… Continue reading The Best Things I Read/Watched/Listened to: March/April 2018

I have a love/hate relationship with Goodreads. It helps me find and save books I want to read, but the reviews are always so negative! For example, Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close has terrible reviews, but I’m so glad that I went ahead and read it anyway, because it quickly became one of… Continue reading The best things I read/watched/listened to: February 2018
