I’ve already done quite a bit of serious reflecting on the life lessons I learned this year. Now it’s time to reflect on a much shallower topic: the cool stuff I bought. After selling most of my belongings in the spring, I tried to be a bit more careful with my purchases this year, although… READ MORE »

New Year’s resolutions are always painfully predictable. Lose weight. Quit smoking. Learn French. Stop making snarky remarks behind your mother-in-law’s back. These kinds of resolutions are not only cliche, they’re difficult — if not impossible — to follow through on. They’re probably going to make you feel crappy when you give up on them in… READ MORE »

This weekend, I visited the vortexes (actual plural is vortices, but I didn’t want to confuse you) in Sedona, Arizona. More on the actual trip to come, but for now, let’s focus on these spiritual energy centers. What exactly is a vortex? Good question. And confusing to try to answer. According to our grey-haired, crystal… READ MORE »

I just started working at a boutique on the weekends, and I’m having a blast. This weekend was particularly entertaining, because we had a steady stream of men wander into the shop looking to buy gifts for their wives and girlfriends. It didn’t take long before I noticed that the vast majority of these last-minute… READ MORE »

People are always talking about how the holidays are a time for giving and blah, blah, blah. But what if you’re broke? Or too up to your ears in family stress to think about anything else? It’s OK, you can still give without engaging in heavy consumerism or abandoning your Christmas plans to volunteer at a soup… READ MORE »

Forget retail therapy, I prefer to deal with stress by engaging in GIF therapy. It’s cheaper, faster and has a far longer-lasting effect than the high you get from a Sephora bender. From the LED baby to the baby walking on ice for the first time, and other things that don’t involve babies, I’d like… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

Between growing up Jewish and having a birthday two days before Christmas, it became ingrained in me that holiday presents only happen sometimes. In my world, gifts are never a guarantee, they are a pleasant surprise. Some years, I would get one Hanukkah present, some years I would get 8 and some years, especially when… READ MORE »

Was there a lot of covert onion-chopping going on at the office or was 2013 particularly packed with heartstring-pulling stories? After reviewing our archives, I’m going to go with the latter. From tearful dog reunions to tales of heartbreaking loss to kids showing kindness and compassion far beyond their years, here are the stories that… READ MORE »

It recently came to our attention that for the low, low price of $69.99, you can make a 3D-printed customized “Star Trek” action figure of yourself. Let us just say that again: you can turn yourself into a shockingly detailed, miniature member of Starfleet. LIFE DREAM STATUS ALERT. Obviously we have already spent multiple hours… READ MORE »

According to a new study, people who exercise regularly are more creative than those who don’t, and hitting the gym can measurably boost your ability to think outside the box. While we certainly don’t disagree with these findings — who hasn’t experienced a creative breakthrough in the middle of yoga class? — we also know… READ MORE »

I’ve been listening to Christmas music pretty much exclusively since a few days before Thanksgiving. Yes, I am that person, and I’m not ashamed. I love all Christmas music (literally ALL OF IT), but there are 7 songs that I listen to on repeat pretty much every day, and somehow I never, ever get sick… READ MORE »

This weekend I achieved a lifelong dream of seeing a special holiday screening of “Home Alone” on the big screen at a local movie theater. I’m sure I saw it at the theater when it first came out, but I can’t remember (I was 5 at the time), so I jumped at the chance to… READ MORE »

Different things are hard for different people. For me, eating dessert is easy — too easy. Baking it is hard. I know a bunch of you will roll your eyes at me and tell me how easy it is to whip up a soufflé. I am jealous of you. The only exposure I had to… READ MORE »

This morning I got up early and went grocery shopping before work. I only did this because we had no vegetables or coffee creamer in the house and I knew I would regret it the entire day if I didn’t just drag my ass to the store and get it done. So I went. And… READ MORE »

In South Korea, where temperatures are currently arctic and energy costs exorbitant, the most effective, efficient way to stay warm is by inhabiting an indoor tent. One South Korean tent manufacturer claims to have sold more than 4 million in just a couple of weeks. I believe that constitutes a trend!

Soon, thanks… READ MORE »

As difficult as it is to admit, there are some things about life that will never change. Politicians will always do shady things. Your mom will always be slightly passive aggressive at the dinner table. Your feet will always hurt after an hour in high heels. Resist these truths if you want, but it’s futile. Life is… READ MORE »

There are certain things that you miss when you don’t have cable for more than a decade of your life. Like, how the whole “On Demand” thing works. (WHUT? You can watch shows after they’ve aired?!)
