10 Tips That Will Make Your New Year's Resolutions Successful

Did you create any New Year’s resolutions for 2021? If you didn’t, it’s not too late to start. If you already fell off the wagon, so to speak, I’m going to show you how easy it is to jump right back on. Every year when January 1st begins I make a list of changes I want to make and things I’d like to do better. I start out strong. Then I break my progress. Why? Because life gets in the way or I lose sight of why I made the resolution in the first place. Eventually, I stop working towards my goals all together andRead More →

Winter Coat Guide: 36 Styles I’m Loving This Season

One of the best things about moving back to the East Coast is being able to purchase cold weather clothing and accessories and actually wear them more than a few times each year. When I lived in L.A. I’d vacation here for a few weeks in December. Immediately upon returning to the California sunshine and winters of 75 degrees or warmer my cold weather clothing got pushed to the back of my closet. As I created this winter coat guide filled with my favorite picks, I was sure to include a variety of styles, colors, textures, and price points. Here are 36 coats that willRead More →

In November I moved to New York City and lived in an empty apartment for about two weeks. During that time it was much easier to order an Impossible burger on Postmates than grocery shop and make something healthy. I told myself that after the holidays were over I would get back on track, and here we are. On January 1st, I committed to making positive changes to my lifestyle by working out three to four times a week (something that’s important to me but I’ve slacked off on recently), drinking more water, transferring my plant-based meal delivery service from L.A. to NYC, and snackingRead More →

Kristie's Year in Review: My Favorite Moments, Places, and Memories of 2020

Every year I like to document my most pivotal moments and favorite places and then compare my answers with the previous year. What can I say about 2020? It was quite unlike any other with it’s fair share of highs and lows, and lots of staying indoors. When I look back, I’ll remember it as the year Billy and I decided to leave our lives behind in L.A. and move to New York City. I’ll remember it as the year my parents bought a beach house at the Connecticut shore and I enjoyed spending my summer mornings waking up to the stunning sights and soundsRead More →

Gina's Year in Review: Favorite Moments, Places, and Memories of 2020

This year has been collectively known as one of the worst years in U.S. history, thanks to COVID-19. I tried to make the most of it by continuing to evolve, learn, and be my best self. I graduated from college and got my Bachelor’s degree in May, which was the highlight of my year. As far as creating new memories, I didn’t have the opportunity to make as many as I would have liked to due to the related isolation. For me, this year was a time for personal growth and self-care. I ate healthier, did yoga daily, and adopted a more positive mindset. BeforeRead More →

Christmas in NYC: Our colorful Christmas tree

This is the first time that I won’t be spending the holidays with my family because of the pandemic. Instead, Billy and I will celebrate our first Christmas in NYC (not vacationing this time, we moved here a month ago). Rather than getting upset that we can’t spend this festive season with my family, we decided to embrace it and start some new traditions of our own. Here’s what we’ve been doing so far and what we’re planning to do throughout the rest of December. What we’ve done so far… Listened to my Christmas playlist day and night. I start playing Christmas music throughout ourRead More →

The Must-Have Items at The Top of Gina's Wish List!

Ever since I was a child, I would have trouble sleeping on Christmas Eve. I’d toss and turn all night in anticipation of what was to come. As soon as the sun came up, I’d annoyingly wake up everyone in my family so we could start opening gifts. A few weeks before, my brothers and I would create our wish lists of what we were asking for and we would share them with each other. We would also include a ton of ideas on what to get our parents. So for this year, even though the holidays don’t really have that same magical feeling thatRead More →
