Kate's Picks
  1. Tina and I *hated* each other. In the very classic, “I’ve never talked to her in my LIFE but we have both been to third base with the same guy” way. I was absolutely terrified of her. She was older than me; I was afraid of and intimidated by any girl older than me. No, it makes total sense: …

  2. One of the most common questions I get is: when did you know it was time to let go of the steady paycheck and “go solo?” I think the reason this question comes up so often is because there is no one-size-fits-all answer. My story certainly didn’t follow commonly given advice. I didn’t have a business …

  3. Image courtesy of Jordan Grace Owens   “If I’m good at _____ and passionate about _____ what career should I have, how does it pay and where do I apply?”  I typed a version of this into my browser, grateful that no one could see me. I was awake in the dark hours when birds start chirping …

  4. It’s been so cool to see Studio 125 evolve. I knew when I got pregnant that I would need to have a place to separate work and life, but what I didn’t expect was building a space that would be a creative haven for not only myself, but for the creative community. It’s always a work in progress …

  5. I know, I know – the word “politics” is an actual swear word these days. And office politics? Jesus, I’d rather be force-fed a montage of Trump rally footage than admit that my workplace is charged with hidden motives and egos. Over the last eight years, I’ve had the unique experience of working in a variety of …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. What other people say about you is none of your business. I wish that was my advice, but really, I got it from a friend in college who got it from a Jesuit priest who probably got it from the Pope, who, if I had to guess where this game of telephone is going, got it …

  8. Most of our renovation projects didn’t involve much drama. I was beginning to think all those HGTV shows were designed to freak people into thinking they would open the walls of a new home and subsequently empty their bank account. We found McDonald Remodeling and felt so much more at ease. I should have remembered this when …

  9. I was born wanting to do things precisely. A perfectionist, detail orientated, rule follower. These characteristics, as you probably know, are a double-edged sword. I never faltered from A marks throughout all of my schooling, went on to play Division 1 golf in college, secured an elusive pharmaceutical sales position at the age of 22, and …

  10. Let’s face it—as modern ladies, there are a million and one things keeping us from getting the sleep we need at night. Whether it’s something small, like the sudden pressure to KonMari your house, or something pressing, like needing to wake up early to protest, sleep eludes many of us. But we don’t just need restful …

  11. BROUGHT TO YOU BY ebay

    Every couple months, Joe and I attempt to clear out our home. Spring is the ultimate purge season, and as most people say, “Out with the old, and in with the new,” we’ve found ourselves swapping sofas for babysitting time or simply removing items and waiting until we find the right replacement. This process is painful, …

  12. Full disclosure: I’m not a financial expert. I’m a regular human being, one who once sailed off on a work trip after whispering to her boss that she didn’t have enough cash to pay for her cab ride to the airport. I’ve figured out some shit the hard way and learned a few things I wish …

  13. Cleansing sticks. Have you heard of them? After reading this Allure article, I sent a note out to the W&D team to see if they wanted to test out the newest way to clean your skin. I think I was in a hotel when I read the article and so tired from the day, I’m almost …
