5 Life Lessons I Learned From Working At Whole Foods

I worked at Whole Foods for almost four years, the majority of which I spent in the bakery as a cake decorator in a fun, busy suburban store. It had some serious ups and downs and a variety of challenges that were unique to the company and their customer demographic. I’m glad I had the experience because it tested my mettle and grew some great friendships. After reading 7 Life Lessons I Learned from Working at Starbucks, I was inspired to write my own list, with an organic, artisan, locally sourced Whole Foods twist. Here are 5 indispensable life lessons I learned while working at one of the most beloved/hated grocery store chains in the country… Keep reading »

6 Life Lessons From Connie Britton’s Hair (In GIFs!)

6 Life Lessons From Connie Britton's Hair (In GIFs!)

Today a very special day, friends. It’s Connie Britton’s birthday! To say we love Connie would be a massive understatement. We are ridiculously obsessed with Connie. As Tami Taylor, she gave us the mother/best friend/wife/sister we always wanted. As Rayna James, she became our new favorite fictional country singer. As Vivien Harmon on the first season of “American Horror Story,” we prayed for her triumph over that scary haunted house. In real life, she’s a Planned Parenthood-supporting badass. There are countless ways we could pay homage to the Goddess that is Connie, but today we’d like to focus on just one of her many, many amazing features: her hair. So many valuable life lessons can be gleaned from Connie Britton’s famous golden mane, such as… Keep reading »

8 Painfully Obvious Life Lessons I Learned This Year

2013 was a pretty big year for me. I turned 28. I moved across the country. I started doing art again. I got a Twitter reply from Wynonna Judd. But most importantly, 2013 was the year that a shit ton of really important, embarrassingly simple life lessons finally clicked. You know how you can hear something 100 times in 100 different ways before it actually gets through to you? All of the things I learned this year fall firmly into that category: things that I maybe should have learned when I was, like, 10, but for whatever reason, didn’t get until just now. This, my friends, was my year of “getting it,” and here are my humble epiphanies: Keep reading »

7 Apple Picking Lessons Worth Applying To Real Life

Not to sound like a fall cliche of a human being, but this weekend I went apple picking on a small farm in New England. And as these activities which snap you out of your everyday routine tend to, apple picking led to my own mini-spiritual awakening. As I was harvesting my bushel of fruit and feeling one with nature, I had a few bite-sized revelations: Keep reading »

10 Life & Love Lessons From Big Ang (In GIFs!)

10 Life & Love Lessons From Big Ang (In GIFs!)

Out of every bright star in the overcrowded reality TV sky, I have to say that Angela “Big Ang” Raiola is my absolute favorite. I discovered Big Ang one afternoon, slumped on the couch after a very late night, scrolling thru the deep, dark corners of Hulu. Settling on Mob Wives, I was greeted with a vision. Who is this glorious creature before me? I thought. Those lips. That hair. Those giant boobs that can really only be described as “melons.” Big Ang, with a voice like crushing gravel, a body that is actually out of tis world and an aesthetic that is Janis from the Muppets meets Marissa Tomei in My Cousin Vinny with a dash of early Kardashian, is a woman after my own heart.

I will just come out and say it, because this is a safe space — Adam Levine is my secret guilty pleasure and celebrity crush. The hair, the inscrutable tattoos, that reedy, breathy falsetto — he’s the dude that induces eye-rolling at the beginning of the night, but at last call, you’re taking him home. He is my LA-singer-songwriter-babe-I’m-in-a-band kryptonite, and that is why he is here to stay. Surely a man with all these character traits has a lot to say about love. Thankfully, he has left us with his one true gift to the world — the music of Maroon 5. Let’s take a deep dive into the lyrics of Maroon 5 and eke out the very valuable lessons in live and love that Adam has left for us, sprinkled like so many jewels over the years.  Come!

14 Life & Love Lessons From Madonna (In GIFs!)

Before Beyonce, before Britney, before Mariah and all the others, there was Madonna Louise Ciccone. She’s done a lot through the years, some questionable, some awesome, but all unique and great. Without Madonna, we wouldn’t know about La Isla Bonita or the empowering effect latex has on your sex life. Without Madonna, we wouldn’t have “All The Way” Mae Mordabito from “A League Of Their Own” or everyone’s karaoke standby “Like A Prayer.” In honor of Madge’s 55th birthday, we’re taking a look at the gems of wisdom she’s given us through song. Here are Madonna’s lessons in life and love — in GIFs! Keep reading »

I’m not sure where the time went, but somehow, this week marks the 18th anniversary of the release of “Clueless.” What a world! Things grow up so fast. “Clueless” is old enough to vote, to buy cigarettes and fireworks in some states — you know, the best things about adulthood! After re-watching the movie for the zillionth time, I realized that there are some nuggets of wisdom buried beneath all the makeover montages and knee socks. Here are seven pretty solid life lessons gleaned from “Clueless.”

20 Things Sailor Moon Taught Me About Being A Woman

20 Things Sailor Moon Taught Me About Being A Woman

Sailor Moon originally started out as a Manga, created by Naoko Takeuchi,  in 1991 but with its rise in popularity it became a must-see anime series in Japan. Sailor Moon aired from 1992-1997, airing 200 episodes about the magical girl defenders reborn to protect a kingdom that spanned the solar system.

Do I have to sing it? Fiiiiiiiighting evil with mooooooon light, wiiiiiiiiiiinning looove by daaaaaay light, never running from a real fight, she is the one named Sailor Moon. I was way into Sailor Moon when I was a kid, I had my own Sailor Moon scepter, posters and action figures. I just loved a show about a few chicks with magical powers who kicked ass. It wasn’t until I got older that I realized how edgy and clever the show actually was. Sailor Moon was sassy and on top of that she incredibly strong and smart, yet still she would have the same kinds of problems as normal teenage girls. She’d stand up for herself but not feel pretty enough, she was totally boy obsessed and slightly neurotic but she wouldn’t let those distractions stop her from saving lives. In retrospect Sailor Moon had plenty to teach me about being an ass-kicking lady. Read more on College Candy…
