This weekend, I planned my sister’s bachelorette party in Newport, Rhode Island. It was not as stressful as the wedding shower, but I’m excited that all I really need to do now before the wedding is write my speech and my dress tailored! What a relief. I wanted to make my own cake for the [...]

Summer weather can be “muggy,” so getting up early to get in a workout is sometimes the only way to guarantee a workout. If you don’t exercise in the morning, you need to stay hydrated and eat properly to keep energy levels up. People get out of work at 5 or 6 but have a [...]
