December Soundtrack to My Life: I Believe (Get Over Yourself) & Shut Up and Dance

So sorry for the lack of posts… my life has been all about work these past few weeks. In fact I saw an astrologer last night who told me the next year is ALL ABOUT WORK and to forget about love completely. Then she told me to get started on my book… WHAT? So, there you go. If you don’t hear from me it’s because I’m working. And not dating. And probably writing a book. She also told me the new guy I just started dating isn’t the one for me. Fun times. 2015 can’t get here fast enough! Without …

When Should He/She Meet Your Family? (Family Blind Dinner Date)

If you’re anything like me, you keep your new man/woman far away from your family as long as possible. Back in my 20s, I would date for someone for a month or so before introducing them to at least my sister and her husband. Now, that I’m in my 30s I’m pretty sure I would be okay with my potential soulmate not meeting my family until our rehearsal dinner.  Hey, if I’m happy they should just be happy for me, right? WRONG. Family and friends are really important. I’ve now learned that they are a good judge of character. Both …

Online Dating: New York Vs Los Angeles

I went to New York last month for both work and fun. The work part was crazy. I was booked solid, but I made time to finally to do all of the things in New York I had been wanting to do. I went to the 9/11 Memorial (amazing), checked out Grand Central Station, and even hit up a Broadway play solo. While I was there, I obviously needed to dabble in the online dating scene as well! I landed on a Tuesday night and opened up OkCupid on the cab ride over. I wanted to see what New York …

November Soundtrack to My Life: Flaws, All Right, & Take Me To Church

Work has seriously taken over my life, so I apologize for the lack of updates! But, that doesn’t mean I don’t have a soundtrack I’m currently rockin’. Obsessed with this song! Zac Brown Band and Dave Grohl? Ah-mazing. If you aren’t familiar with Hozier yet, get out from under the rock you’re living and take a listen. Working on a bunch of blogs! Hope to post again Friday. Happy November peeps! xoxo

The Post Date Text… Save Face or Man Up?

I’m baaack… after my traumatic break-up that was worst than a lifetime movie, I have finally returned to the real world and starting dating again. Friends have been really great with several of them wanting to set me up. After this past year I decided that it would be best to be totally open to anything and everything. I found a guy who met everything on “my list” and he turned out to be a sociopath, so at this point I really have nothing to lose! A good girlfriend from college set me up with her 2nd cousin. We texted a …

Every Woman Should Do a Boudoir Shoot… For Herself!

This has been a crazy summer… I went through a traumatic break-up, got rid of some toxic people in my life, and turned 35. Over the last couple of years I’ve realized that when you look good, you feel good and vice versa. I really took control of my health and fitness – stepping it up with boot camp and spinning, and eating healthy portions of good food (so I can make room for additional cocktails and bottles of wine). Due to these physical and emotional changes in my life, I’ve never looked or physically felt better naked. My boobs …

Soundtrack To My Life (September) – Bad Girl Phase & Young Volcanoes

I recently turned 35 (gasp!). A new age bracket, a grey hair or two (that I will color until I die!), and some new smile lines that show how much I have enjoyed and lived life. Keep in mind, moisturizer, working out, and wine are my fountain of youth and according to most I still look 28! But no matter what is happening in my life music gets me through it all. Right now I can’t stop listening to this song… a bad girl phase is coming on! Good girls say no, bad girls say I’m there. Good girls go …

The Other Woman: Part 6 – 3 vs 1

(Yup, I’m still Kate Upton in all of this!) Are you caught up? Make sure to read Parts 1-5 first! The days after LDC’s world came crashing down on him were horrible for everyone involved. The girls and I talked a lot – comparing timelines, sending emails, etc. LDC was an obvious disaster and because he now had NO ONE to turn to, he turned to me. (Yet, another red flag… NO FRIENDS!) I know that our relationship was based on a friendship at the core, but come on… after cheating on someone and getting caught in the act (more …

When A Girl Finds Out Her BF is on Match…

So, apparently I have no cheater filter. I’m even attracted to them online. Last week I posted some of the gems I was receiving from men through Match and OkCupid. I mentioned that I had talked to 2 seemingly normal guys and that there was one guy and I messaged back and forth a couple of time and then all of a sudden his profile was hidden… well, tonight “he” responded! Weird, right? So, I go to his now no longer hidden profile… Obviously, pissed off and cheated on GF has logged into his account and taken matters into her …

WTF Are These Guys Thinking? BAD 1st Online Dating Emails…

Post my lifetime movie break-up I have finally rejoined the land of the living and jumped back into online dating in a major way. I’m currently on Tinder, Hinge, Match and OkCupid. It’s a fucking full-time job!  But, don’t get too excited… in the 2 weeks I’ve been on I’ve received several cringe worthy messages. Now, there were 2 nice guys I was emailing back and forth with.  1 has since moved to Santa Barbara for a new job and the other just hid his profile after sending me 1 message.  Fun times. Here are 3 gems that I received …

Soundtrack To My Life… Done, 15 Minutes of Shame, Be My Forever

It’s August and I’m getting all of my ex-bf angst out of the way!  A couple of songs I’m loving right now… We are Done by the Madden Brothers. I adore them both. Yeah, this blog is about you… 15 Minutes of Shame by Kristy Lee Cook (an oldie, but goodie!) Best lyrics ever? Um, yes. Yeah, this song is about you I’m giving you more than fair warnin’ right now on your radio Everybody’s gonna hear all the things that you did That you don’t want the world to know I’m spillin’ the beans, I’m shouttin’ it out Yeah, …

The Other Woman: Part 5 – He Gets Caught

Another quick recap… I’m dating a guy I knew from high school who lives in New York. We’ve been dating for a few months now. Things started off amazing, but quickly I was inundated with red flags and manipulative excuses that made me feel like I was the one doing something wrong. This man I trusted so whole heartedly has a stalker, still talks to and has a very dependent emotional relationship with his ex-fiancé (aka “A”), and I’m pretty sure is still in love with his ex-gf (aka “B,” who is the reason his wedding got called off in …
