Lifestyle // December 1, 2014For many people, the holidays inspire a spirit of giving.

Entertainment // October 13, 2014Usually when we think of women in nightclubs, we think of body glitter, Cosmopolitans and that awkward dance circle in the center of the floor that forms when Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies’ comes on (what is that, by the way?). Jayne Coffee is in a nightclub most nights but she’s nothing like the stereotypical “club girl”. She’s actually in charge of running one of the hottest and…
Lifestyle // September 15, 2014Hate is a strong word, but now that I have your attention...I really do despise 30 day challenges. I’m not referring to those 30 day lifestyle challenges or do-a-different-physical-activity-per-day challenges. I am talking about those 30+ day squat, plank, push-up, any-one-exercise for 30 or more consecutive days fitness challenges!!!

Lifestyle // August 18, 2014 The essence of summer: What is it for you?For me, it usually comes paired with a glass of wine. Sometimes it’s a clean white sipped while burying toes into beach sand, warmed from a day’s worth of the sun’s blanket. Other times, it’s a full-bodied red, accompanied by laughter and adult humor as ribs, steak, and burgers are thrown on a grill ahead of a…
Made Mommy // August 4, 2014 Friday night I boarded the Golden Gate Ferry to leave work for the last time before becoming a mom.
