What exactly is a lifestyle blogger? It’s vague, I know (no one really knows), here’s one version of it. Managing a blog, personal life and a career, life can be a bit insane. But that’s ok, because I love every minute of it. Striving for a work-life balance as a marketing professional, blogger and travel enthusiast, I thought I’d take you along for the ride. Learn how to live a healthy lifestyle with less clutter and no time, from food blog posts and interior inspo to active lifestyle and current thoughts on handling the crazy. Welcome to a day in my dreams.

fast track through a day in my dreams, and silence in a noisy world

I can hear the sound of the electricity running through my lights as I sit here to write. That’s how unaccustomed I’ve become to silence. The refrigerator cooling, propane pilot light, the heater, the traffic outdoors a block away – it all sounds like an NYC traffic jam pounding in my ears. photography:MOM | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | luxury handbag: PRADA | basic pumps c/o: NAKED FEET SHOES It’s almost the holiday season, and it seems we are all more in a rush than ever before. In some ways, the silence feels even louder than the havoc a normal day might bring. Think about it. The first experience we have in the morning is jolting awake to a ringing alarm. If we dare silence it, we face it yet again. In my case, the cat is also screaming. The alarm works as her notification it’s time to harass mom clawing at her face for some morning affection. Checking emails, texts, social notifications all happens next. We’re bombarded with notifications of happenings in those few …

fall fashion

we’re a new breed; we’re ready for winter this time

The rain fell steadily behind the glass. Though the wind was as still as it was from indoors. The sky, dark, as was the unlit room. Days have gotten shorter. The sunlight, fighting for control of the shorter days. Fall has arrived, and with it, a hush of silence as we prepare for our first cold weather season in a post-Covid world. photography:MAMMA | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | lace dress c/o:MAGALI PASCAL | vegan leather dress jacket c/o:DAVID LERNER | pebbled leather pouch c/o:STATUS ANXIETY | shoes c/o:NAKED FEET Something about it feels quieter than before. Like the stillness resounds louder off of closed city doors. If ever we were urged to stay home, now is the time we consider, that might not be such a bad thing. Bears hibernate through winters, saving their energy for the more habitable months. As we continue to adapt to a new normal, we consider what the new season will bring. Trapped, alone, scared. The memories of summer past remind us of just how much has changed in …

Alright so it’s been a crazy, crazy couple of months. Not just with Covid and the generally crazy year it’s been, but also a ton of changes both in work and personal life.

perspective of reality, emotions and fantasy | what is real life a day in our dreams

I believe that who we are exists somewhere between reality, emotions and fantasy. There are times our emotions tell us things our mind simply cannot. Who we love. How much pain we can bare. What makes us happy. Fantasy is the next level, and perhaps the most raw essence of self. It tells us who to trust. It gives us that gut feeling that we can neither create or ignore. It is a realm where our creativity and imagination are truly limitless, without the restraints of physics or science. People often dismiss the part of themselves driven by fantasy. But why? Why turn away from the only part of yourself in which you have complete control and direction. The place you can be anything you choose. They say it’s not real. It’s just a dream. But aren’t dreams what drive people to accomplish incredible things? Hasn’t every visionary and leader of every generation first started with nothing more than a dream. Believing only in reality is a trap. You’ll never grow past the things you …

When things get complicated, we seek out effortless solutions that are as adaptable as we’ve become.

The truth is, this isn’t just a roadblock or pause on life anymore. We’re living in the new normal. A normal where we work, play and create a new life for ourselves from our own homes. We have embraced the positive aspects of solitude, finding tranquility in the serene environment that’s created some space from the chaos happening all around us. With those vitals at the heart of our evolution, this …
