The Glorification of BUSY + Easy Protein Smoothie Recipe
3 Products for a Healthier, Happier Home
You are enough. You do enough. You have enough.
How can you actively tune into that feeling of abundance, fullness, ENOUGHness (it’s not a word, but you get it). The glorification of being busy is so overrated.

Multitasking + An Adapted Bulletproof Matcha Recipe
Your home is your sanctuary. It’s where you begin each day and where you celebrate what you’ve accomplished at the end of it. [If you’re like me and often work from home, it’s where you get to spend the middle part of your day too!]

We know it is majorly overwhelming to do a complete overhaul of all those toxic products, so we wanted to bring you our shortlist of brands that you should know. These companies are all about making healthier, happier homes—for the safety and well-being of you and your family.
Getting Back on Track ON Vacation
Multitasking. I’m guilty of it, you’re guilty of it. We’re all guilty of it. Here’s the thing, multitasking can often feel really good, right? We’re getting more things done at once and all of a sudden we’ve freed up hours in our day for… more multitasking! But could this be a detriment to the health of our brain?
Wedding Prep | Checklists, Cacao and Collagen
Sometimes the best way to get on track if you've been off the wagon for a bit is to go on vacation. I know what you're thinking: who gets back on track while on vacation, but trust me - when everything you need is sitting in front of you - all measured out - it works!
This is 27 (but it should've been 21)
The Wedding Countdown continues! One and a half weeks from today will mark the beginning of the coolest life adventure with the best guy around. I keep pinching myself wondering if it’s all real! Being engaged is such a fairytale. But with all the planning and anticipation of a 15-month engagement, I’m so ready to just be married. Can any of you relate?
Many of you are also engaged (or have sisters, friends, cousins that are wedding prepping as well) and are wondering if I have any tips/tricks I can share (beauty, workouts, diet, stress management, etc). I thought I’d take a moment to quickly jot down some of my best secrets as the Big Day approaches! Here goes…
Hormonal Health + Acupuncture

My recent journey with hormonal health and how acupuncture has played an important role!
J's Tips for Working From Home
The cat's out of the bag: I'm moving! In the interim, I'm couch-surfing with friends, which means I’ve had to learn how to pack for a weekly 4-night/5-day trip.
Fall-ing into the Next Best Season of Life

Plus, I honestly have never given you guys the whole scoop on what I do day-to-day...until now.
Welcome To The Family
As the season of Fall and Thanksgiving is upon us, I can’t help but reflect on the past year with so much gratitude for the Universe. A few weeks ago, the Blondes and I all took a turn re-introducing ourselves on the ‘Gram with a Day in the Life, and I opened up about how this age has been confusing for me as everyone is going through different things at different times. I was scared to put myself out there in this capacity (admit to 6,000 people that my life is far from perfect? – hard pass!) but your feedback was inspiring. So here it is, the past year, SparkNotes edition…
You made it. You're home.
