2.20: What’s On My Nightstand

Confession: I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. It feels so manufactured to me, probably because it is! But I do think the Hallmark holiday can be a good reminder to celebrate love. And you can tell from what’s on my nightstand this month that February is all about love—and I don’t just mean love with a partner. Loving yourself by indulging with self-care rituals and celebrating the love

Holiday Looks From Reformation

I love a holiday party. (Though if I’m being totally honest, I’d prefer to skip big holiday bashes. Small, intimate parties are more my jam.) Since I wear mostly jeans and T-shirts in my everyday life, I’m happy for any excuse to get dressed up. Breaking out a sexy dress, fancy jewelry, and sky-high heels? Yes, please! One of my favorite brands for holiday looks is Reformation. Their silhouettes are always

12.19: What’s On My Nightstand

As I mentioned last month, I’ve noticed that what’s on my nightstand is a perfect reflection of how I’m feeling and what I’m focusing on. This month, it’s all about reflection and self-care. The holidays always get me a little frazzled. I want to savor the last days of the year, but between all the shopping, holiday functions, the kids’ breaks from school, and trying to manage the blog, I

When I go for a run or hike outside, even when it’s freezing cold, it feels less like a chore and more like an adventure. But I’ve learned the hard way that if you’re going to get your sweat on outside when the temps drop below 50, you need to have

My ACL Playlist

I’m obsessed with playlists. They get me through long runs, long drives, and just plain long days. Since I’m really looking forward to ACL Fest kicking off tomorrow (!), I put this Spotify playlist together (below) that features some of my favorite songs from artists who will be playing at the festival this year. Scroll down to give my ACL playlist a listen, and then let me know in the

Eco-Friendly Fashion Brands I Love

Gen Padalecki Eco Fashion

Making eco-friendly changes in our everyday life has been a big goal of mine in 2019. We’ve been trying to be more mindful of the food we buy, the food we grow and the personal care products we use as a family. The next stop: My closet. I love fashion and want to shop smarter for the environment while still looking stylish. And I’ve been pleasantly surprised to discover that

Maxi dresses you can wear anywhere

Schools out for summer and I am officially ready to dress like it. Screw early morning wake-ups, rushing grumpy kids out the door and dressing like I don’t give a sh*t.  I can’t wait to sleep in (even just an extra 15 minutes!) and enjoy summer—and my summer uniform: maxi dresses. Long flowy dresses are my warm weather staple, perfect for a day in the sun with my family or
