My Children Love Hanging Their Organic Underpants in the Sun

A colleague told me a horrible story this morning about her toddler spreading poo-poo all over his crib. Yuck! Little Edie and Little Eddie were both potty trained by the time they were six months old (and even that felt a little late…) They love helping me hand wash their organic cotton underpants and hang them to dry in the sun…

I Never Get Tired!

So many people whine at me daily about “I didn’t get enough sleep,” “I’m so worn out from doing this or that”… I just don’t get it. They must not be eating enough superfoods.

I’m the One That I Like

I’m thrilled to report that as of today, I’m back on Tumblr after a very nourishing social media cleanse. Every morning for the past few weeks I’ve lit a Jo Malone London Lime Basil & Mandarin Deluxe Candle (energizing) and reminded myself of my intention to BE. HERE. NOW. while repeating the following mantra: “I like myself. I follow myself. I am my favorite.”

In the wake of my friend Jill Abramson’s unceremonious firing from the New York Times last week, much has been written about how difficult it is to be a confident woman in today’s workforce without being considered a b-word. As a female executive myself (I’m the SVP of a boutique digital marketing agency in SoHo) I thought now would be a good time to share my advice for being both confident and likable…

Sexy weekend smoothies

Take 1 pound of chia. Add 2 bushels organic kale, an acre of acai and twelve miles of flax. Blend while holding loving thoughts in your heart. Say a prayer for wounded kittens. Do 13 minutes of Kegel exercises. Enjoy.
