Another Year Around The Sun: 5 Things I Learned In The Last 365 Days

I still cant believe that I am 33. In my head I am still 21. I think I’ll always feel this way, which I guess is a good thing. This past year has been a rollercoaster for sure. I simultaneously had my best and worst month to date business wise in the same year. I was given some amazing opportunities, and also told “no” to things that I felt were a sure thing. This past year, my husband and I were fortunate enough to buy our first home which we are slowly transforming into our dream home. it really is amazing just ow much can happen in 365 days.

I learned a ton in the past year, and I would love to share some of these lessons with you. Hopefully we can make this the best year EVER together!

Eat The Rainbow- Delicious Italian Antipasto Recipe

Introducing one of my favorite quick, easy and most importantly, healthy salad recipes, the Antipasto Salad! For Italians, antipasto is typically an appetizer (or many- antipasti) full of meats, cheeses and olives, and salad traditionally is eaten after a meal, so this salad seems like a contradiction. For Americans, this is often a full meal, which is what I do with this salad.

You know I love color, and when I cook, i love to have at least 4 colors in every meal. In my house we talk a lot about eating the rainbow, and this is definitely a great example of how to do it.

#Momboss: What It Is Really Like To Have a Toddler At Work

I get asked this question so much that I figured a post is in order. People say all the time how “easy” I make it look to have my little one at work. I am so grateful for the HUGE compliment, I would be lying if I said it was always easy. For those of you who don’t know me yet, I am a fashion designer/ celebrity stylist who brings my little one to my studio with me nearly every day. People say it’s all about balance, I say poo to that, it’s all about the juggle. It’s about being able to jump from kid to work and back and forth (at least) twelve billion times.
