1. Gifts for the Hostess with the Mostess

    With Thanksgiving week upon us, it’s easy to forget last minute details like picking up extra whip cream for the pumpkin pie, or planning what you’re going to eat on Wednesday night…(crucial). There’s also the task of getting your Thanksgiving host or hostess a thank you gift. This gift doesn’t have to be expensive or fancy, just a small token of appreciation for allowing you to eat copious amounts of food in their home. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite, one-and-done hostess gifts for the season.

  10. Keeping February Fresh with Fitness with Guest Blogger Allegra G.


    With January behind us and the end of February closer than we might believe, the solid resolutions we made on January 1 may have started to wane slightly.

    This is often the case when we set lofty goals for an entire year.

    You might find that the gym seems farther away, and those excuses for why you just can’t exercise today are starting to carry more weight.

    Resolutions and big picture goals are a great starting point, but they put a lot of pressure on you. Once you set a resolution, you have to keep it up for 365 days, and any small misstep can feel like a failure.

    Huge fitness resolutions may be too overwhelming, so a few weeks in you might find yourself on the couch rather than a treadmill. But there is hope!
