Now you've set your goals for the new year, but how are you going to achieve them? Here's how we are achieving our wildly important goals!

As I mentioned in my 30 before 30 list, one of my goals is to write and publish a book before I turn 30. Yes! There, I’ve said it (and I guess there’s no turning back now). The big challenge, however, before even getting anything published is to manage to put in the work, next to my full-time jo...

What is it with us (women) and limited edition? For some reason, the minute I see an item is limited edition, something gets a whole different appeal to it.
