Shampoo Review: Maple Holistics Tea Tree Oil

Hey all and happy weekend! I was just recently listening to my sister (who owns a hair salon) talk about how one of the most important things you can invest in for your hair is a good shampoo and conditioner. And she’s right! It’s how we care for our hair every single day. It’s the food and we give our hair to grow, improve, and stay healthy so finding a great product is crucial. This conversation really got me thinking…

How to Create a Gallery Wall

Let’s be honest, decorating isn’t always the easiest task. At one point or another we’ve all been that person who lets art work collect dust instead of taking five minutes to hammer a darn nail into the wall. I’m definitely guilty! But it’s really not that difficult…so why procrastinate? For me, it’s the possibility of the outcome not living up to the vision in my head. I put so much pressure on what I imagine my home to look like…

NYC Travel Guide

Two vacations, one Big Apple. Ahhh New York City, my favorite place in the entire world! I’ve been to NYC a handful of times and have already checked all of the classic touristy activities off of my bucket list. I’ve seen the Statue of Liberty, toured the Empire State Building, and paid my respects at Ground Zero. I’ve purchased a purse out of a sketchy warehouse building in China Town, and devoured meatballs in Little Italy. So, these past few…

GIVEAWAY and Fitness Q&A with Cyclestar Jess

If last week was any indication of what this month is going to be like at CycleBar, I better prepare for killer music, tons of fun, and get ready to sweat my butt off!! Last Tuesday’s class was #FatTuesday themed & packed with an upbeat playlist, king cake, beads, and booze… Yes, we had our own Mardi Gras celebration after class. And as if that wasn’t fun enough, Thursday’s ride was TBT Hip Hop themed. We may or may not…

  Valentine’s Day is just a few days away and the time to buy your loved ones’ gifts is quickly running out.  Okay… let’s just be honest, you’re a professional procrastinator (It’s fine, we just need that extra anxiety push, right!?). To me, Valentine’s Day is about celebrating the love that you have in your life, whether that be a significant other, friend, or a family member. I’m not big into extravagant gifts, I mean that’s what birthdays and anniversaries…

My Favorite Mediterranean Salad Recipe

  Hey guys! It’s that time of the week again… the start of the dreaded “It’s almost Monday” blues, where I say goodbye to Sunday Funday and think about everything that I have coming up in the next week.  After lists of errands, meetings, and other various tasks bounce around in my head, I remember that I also have to plan out and prepare my lunches for the week. If you’re like me, the last thing that you want to…

Six Resolutions for a Better You in 2017

  Hey Guys! Welcome to my first post and the launch of The Write Stuff. Oh, and Happy Wednesday! It’s January 18th, and we’re a solid two and a half weeks into our New Year’s resolutions… but, we all know that they’re not exactly the easiest to keep up year round. I always go super hard for a few months and then I just end up falling off. So this year, I decided to take a new approach. Instead of…
