Over the past few years my eating habits have grown up a bit. I try to buy organic, love to cook at home, and aim to eat my veggies daily. (Not that I’m ever one to turn down an ice cream cone, but I’ve learned that when I eat well I feel better!) Having learned a lot about all the junk that goes into processed food, it’s made me more aware of what I put in my body as well as what I put on it. I’ve in turn become more picky about what products I use on my face and body, and recently tried out the Whish product line after reading how it was paraben / sulfate / DEA / a-bunch-of-other-junk free.

 The only problem I’ve had with some all natural products is that they don’t smell the most pleasant, but Whish has completely won me over with it’s delicious and sweet candy-like scent. Since the day it arrived I’ve been a devoted daily body oil user, and have been using the scrub a few times a week in the shower. I very rarely buy the same product twice in hopes that there’s always a newer, nicer, better one to try – but this one is going to be a staple and reordered as soon as it gets low. My skin drinks it up and I feel good knowing I’m wearing a thoughtfully-made all natural product.

After almost 2 months of nonstop travel, I’ve been soaking up the past few weeks at home. I’ve really abandoned my little blog space on the web, but have some fun things in the works to get her back up and running regularly. Lately with this spring weather, everything else seems like a priority over spending time here in front of my big bright computer screen. I’ve been extra happy the past few weeks to do the most simple of things – coffee dates with friends, long runs in preparation for my May half-marathon, mosey around Whole Foods and make dinners at home, bike to Sunday brunch with the boyfriend, settle into my apartment…all the little things I don’t always appreciate but missed a lot when I was gone suddenly traveling so much for work!

These past 2 weeks have been full of so many big things + big trips…another visit to sunny Miami, ringing in my birthday, celebrating at the most fun wedding of 2 dear friends, saying goodbye to a best friend moving far away, a week in California for LA market and to celebrate a friends birthday, and now I’m working in Denver for a few days. With so much bouncing around lately from city to city I’m trying to take it all in and between work commitments enjoy each place I get to visit – trying local foodie favorites and hunting down the best coffee and juice shops, getting outside as much as possible to take in the city and scenery and sunsets, and seeing old friends I don’t get to see often. It’s a lot – but I’m enjoying my work so much so it’s been a fun sort of chaos!

With each trip I’m getting better about packing smart and traveling efficiently, and making the most of my limited time home. While the blog has taken a backseat lately it will morph into a bit of a travel diary until I’m back at home for awhile!

The past few weeks have been a total whirlwind of flights, hotels, packing, unpacking, running around, and trying to adjust to every time zone except the one I’m used to! I’m currently on my way home from 2+ weeks of nonstop travel spending time in Miami, Las Vegas, and New York City, and I’m a mix of dead tired and extra energized.

Backing up a bit, Proper closed in early January after the company decided to turn the store back into an all mens shop, and soon after I started with a jewelry line that I loved and carried at Proper. It’s a big transition to go from working a very set schedule of retail hours and weekends, to suddenly traveling more than you’re home. I couldn’t be more excited about it – I’m not much of a routine girl and have really loved getting to spend time in some of my favorite cities (and soak up some warmer weather!)

Miami

SunInBloom

Throughout all the recent work travels I’ve been able to squeeze in a little bit of play time – relaxing at the Standard Hotel Spa in Miami, surviving my first Soul Cycle class (ohmigosh!), indulging at lots of incredible restaurants (highlights include apps at the Delano and breakfast at The Edition in Miami, Katsuya in Vegas, and The Select, Smile, and Sun in Bloom in NYC), a long stroll along the beach and an early morning run along the Vegas strip, taking in a Britney Spears concert in Vegas, and catching up with NYC friends over tea, wine, and dinner dates.

Traveling is great but home is so sweet. Looking forward to unwinding at home for a bit before the next adventure starts.
