I was driving home from a pure barre class this past Saturday morning, and I thought about my weekly workouts. I had just bought a new class pass to Pure Barre and was thinking about all of the different studios/gyms/workout classes I have memberships to that I use on a weekly basis.
It got me to thinking more about my overall workout routine, how drastically it has changed over the past couple of years, and how many different workouts I currently do, have done and tried.
Today I thought I would share a bit with you about the different types of workouts I do, and my overall philosophy around working out. Continue reading “4 Rules When Starting a Workout Routine”
Working remotely has become not only a common practice in companies today, but it has almost become expected by candidates to be able to at least one day a week. I found a study to back this assumption and it said that 70% of people globally work from home one day a week, then there is another 50% work remotely half of a week. As a recruiter talking to people all day, I have found that a lot of candidates won’t even be interested in a role without being able to work from home at least one day a week. Then, in that same article my observation was backed by a study claiming that ⅓ of workers would change their jobs for the ability to work from home.
Now that I have been working remotely for 2-3 days a week for almost three years, I completely understand WHY people love to work from home and why they require it.
The reasons I love to work from home are:
I am more productive.
I spend less time commuting.
I get to wear pjs or sweats all day.
I am more relaxed and less stressed during the day.
**It allows me to have more time in a day while still getting in a full day of work. Continue reading “How I Work From Home”
When it comes to preparing for an interview, there are many different things that you can do to get ready. I wrote another blog called “Interview Like a Pro”, which outlined four simple things you can do to prep for an interview.
To take your preparation one step further, I wanted to add three things that you could do specifically on LinkedIn before an interview to gain an additional edge. Continue reading “Top 3 Things To Do On LinkedIn Before An Interview”
I am a summer girl through and through. I love everything about summer and when we have the final drive home from our summer cottage on Labor Day Weekend it always brings tears to my eyes. So dramatic, but so true.
To change my focus from what is behind me, I try to focus on what is ahead.
Even though I haven’t been to “school” in years there is a certain exciting feeling you get in September around the new “school year”. It’s the beginning of a new chapter, a new season, and a new opportunity to start on the right foot.
This time of the year always makes me reminisce and think about the things that my parents would make me and my siblings do once we started the new school year.

I want to start by saying this is NOT an ad. I repeat. NOT an ad.
You’re probably thinking – no sh**t Sherlock people wouldn’t pay you to do ads… not yet at least ;). But in case you thought I was some super hip influencer who got offered free stuff to market, I certainly am NOT and do NOT.
I DO just like to talk about the things I learn about and do every day that helps me in hopes that after reading about it maybe it will help you too!
That is why today I wanted to dedicate this entire post to my Start Today Journal I got from the Hollis Co. Continue reading “This tool has totally changed my life…”
What I learned from a tour guide, Chef and Michelangelo
I went to Italy on a 10-day trip to Tuscany and Rome a couple of weeks ago. It was my immediate family and our significant others. We went to Tuscany for 8 days and then ended the trip in Rome. We stayed in a beautiful villa in Panzano, Tuscany and took small day trips to the local towns and then some of the bigger cities like Florence, Luca, and Cinque Terre. We had a private tour guide who was local to the area and brought us around. We had a chef who came and taught us to cook homemade pasta and pizza, and then we have another tour guide bring us all through Florence to point out and teach us about the art and history of the city.
It truly was the trip of a lifetime. We had such a blast drinking wine, eating unlimited bread cheese and pasta and just being together. But the icing on the cake was really learning about and getting to know some of the locals. Our tour guides and chef were so gracious, all with huge smiles and a deep appreciation for their country and its history. They all lived very different lives, but they all taught me something that I didn’t think I would find in the classic Italian laid back culture.

Coming off a 10-day vacation in Italy with a 9.5-hour plane ride, a couple of blog ideas were bound to happen. For starters, the trip we had truly was a trip of a lifetime.
My family and our significant others rented a villa in Tuscany for 8 days. We took day trips to the local towns, Florence, Luca, and Cinque Terre. Then we ended the trip with two nights in Rome.
We were toured around by locals, taught how to cook pasta and pizza by a local chef, had multiple wine tastings at local Chianti wineries, and had some really interesting tours in the big cities. We drank unlimited wine, Aperol Spritz’s, and ate homemade pasta and bread and oil Every. 👏Single.👏 Day👏. Continue reading “What I learned in Italy: The Food Edition!👩🍳”
