  1. If you know me personally or follow me on social media, you know I love my dog. When James and I finally got settled in our new house (about 2 years ago) and had workplaces that allowed dogs, I popped the question, “Can we get a dog now?” He wasn’t on board at first. He didn’t …

  2. “I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there’s gum in my hair and when I got out of bed this morning I tripped on the skateboard and by mistake I dropped my sweater in the sink while the water was running and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, …

  3. I’d like to clarify something before we dive in. This is not your standard, “5 Things Successful People Do in the Morning,” Forbes article. I say this right away for two reasons: I’m a sucker for those articles. Who wouldn’t find Beyonce’s workout routine inspiring? Why wouldn’t I want to know what Sheryl Sandberg eats for …

  4. Spring is a time of rebirth, and also a time to convince yourself that you can do things you failed at last year, like keeping a bonsai tree alive or finding out what sous vide means. To amp you up to take control of your destiny—and own who you are right now—we picked out special rom-com …

  5. If there is one group of people on this planet I could not identify less with it’s people who just naturally *love* to clean. Couldn’t be me. Here’s an example of what I look like cleaning:  *Picks one thing up off the floor* Welp! That’s probably enough of that! I have to make it an event; a commitment. It …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. My new year’s resolutions often start at odd times, and not once but twice a year. Maybe these markers of renewal are tied to fashion; maybe they’re influenced by deep seeded ties to the beginning and end of the academic calendars. It happens intuitively and without much foresight. Like a bear knows it’s time to hibernate, …

  8. March was nothing short of crazy. I’ve been burning it at both ends for about six weeks, working on four product lines and jumping into consulting again with a large last-minute project that required 9 days of shooting and lots and lots of planning. I hate seeing time fly by me without stopping to enjoy the little …

  9. Strong female leads teach us so much, like that it’s ok to have haters, drink wine before 5 p.m. and expose midriff after age 17. Most importantly, they teach us to laugh in the face of danger/the patriarchy. We collected their best mantras for success to inspire you to be the protagonist of your own life. …

  10. As the saying goes: in like a lion, out like Beyoncé. Whether you like her or not, you most definitely are on a first name basis with Beyoncé. There’s no denying her icon status. So, no “Women Who #Werk” March series would be complete without drawing inspiration from a woman whose hard work has captivated the …

  11. 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 …

  12. Like any true adult, I cry constantly. It’s very casual and part of my regular schedule; don’t be weird about it. Like most women, I’m naturally intuitive. It’s a skill we picked up on to like, I don’t know, survive? But like few special souls (I absolutely DOUSED that in sarcasm), I’m referred to as an “empath.” I hate that …

  13. “I don’t want to give the world a guy that can’t iron his own shirt,” she said.   “I won’t give your future wife a husband who won’t do the dishes,” she said. My mom took extreme pride in raising my sister and me to be independent. We grew up unaware of traditional gender roles that …
