I’ve been trying recently (without much luck) to become a member of the 6AM Club, which meets most weekdays at my apartment. Usually it’s just my boyfriend and his Jambox, but that’s not to say big thinkers won’t be stopping for french pressed Zeke’s and plain oatmeal.
I recently read the quick tome by Laura Vanderkam, What the Most Successful People do Before Breakfast. As a long time advocate of sleep, I’m trying to convince myself that the 6AM Club is where it’s at, but I’ve had a rough go of things so far. Continue reading
Earlier this month Sweet Lemon Magazine underwent a huge makeover – a new look, new staff, and a slew of new contributors (including yours truly) to provide Gen-Y women with smart, timely editorial on a daily basis, branching away from the monthly magazine/blog feel.

Dear god do I hate meatloaf. I find the whole concept incredibly repulsive, especially that terrible, barbaric name – meatloaf, gag. And no, please don’t try to reason with me. I hate your meatloaf, I hate your mom’s meatloaf, I hate my mom’s meatloaf, but I must say I’m truly starting to love my meatloaf.

Well, I’m so glad you asked! Read on to find a list of things you might want to put in your very own meatloaf. Continue reading

We like to believe Baby Fever is just for women on their honeymoons, or women in loving, committed relationships who are at a point in their careers where it just feels right to bring a new baby into this world. The unfortunate truth of the matter is the following – all women suffer from Baby Fever. Oftentimes at tragically inappropriate times in their lives. Maybe it’s the first day of spring talking, but as a woman who’s never been pregnant – pregnancy must be awesome, right!? You get to do so many things that the rest of us regular women aren’t allowed to do like: Continue reading
A ‘lil bit confusing and a ‘lil bit scary, this freaky new Beyoncé track is a must listen. We may never know what inspired this song, but we can be sure that there’s no room in the Beyhive for us.
New Year’s Eve in the Midwest can be rough. It’s cold, slushy and lacks adequate public transportation, which kind of puts a damper on, well, everything. Party hopping, wearing cute shoes, and leaving your coat at home are not advised, but here are some New Year’s traditions a Midwestern girl can get excited for no matter what the weather is outside… Continue reading
