Things I Love Thursday: Groeten Uit Amsterdam!

Groeten uit Amsterdam! We arrived in Holland yesterday, after an incredible few days in Berlin. We adventured as far and wide as we could, but feel like we barely even scraped the surface of Berlin. The love affair is in full effect! I was so sad to leave! (New dream: go back every year. Yes, please!)

Today, we’re out and about, soaking up the best of what Amsterdam has to offer. We don’t really have a plan beyond going wherever the wind blows us… I can’t wait!


On the love-o-meter lately… Fizzy apple juice! Getting re-obsessed with Filofax diaries (look out 2015, I’m comin’ to get ya!) Going a little bit crazy on the stationery floor at KaDeWe Walking around Prenzlauer Berg on a gorgeous day Sideways photobooths! Stopping off for ice-cream all the time Very loud yacht rock sing-a-longs in our Berlin apartment Buying silly t-shirts (see below!)  Partying with our Blogcademy babes at our London mixer Finding disco balls in the garden (because, of course) Looking out the window of our place in Berlin to see that our neighbours had a treehouse and a trampoline Reading about emotional vampires  Despite my t-shirt, practicing my German as much as possible  Walking along the East Side Gallery  Stumbling upon a miniature greenhouse within a Mercedes-Benz dealership  Emergency trips to a local cafe for tea and other essentials! 

life is too short to learn german

This weekend, we’re teaching our last European class (Amsterdam) for the year. It’s pretty packed, but if you want to squeeze in, we can make that happen! We’d love you to join us to throw confetti, get some top-notch blogging education, and have a damn good time to boot!

Crazy to think that my next Things I Love Thursday will come from NYC. We’re having the time of our lives in Europe, but I can’t wait to get back to the city to see my man and our puppies.  I miss them like mad!

Greetings from Berlin! Hoorah! I can’t wait to explore the city with Shauna and Kat. Since I’ve been travelling so much this month, I haven’t done quite as much reading as normal… But I think you will still find plenty here to keep you entertained! What does it mean to be a wellness coach? I […]

Just Stop Doing It!

07.21.2014 · entrepreneurship

A definite perk of my job is that I get to spend time with a lot of incredible people. This is what happens when you put yourself out there: the people you always wished existed actually begin to make themselves known to you. (Just another reason to start a blog, if you ask me.) Ask me […]

I am not sure I can really put into words what it was like to work and spend five days with Tiffany Pratt, interiors genius and glitter guru. It was like going on a crazy rocket ride to another planet, requiring many things: trust, faith, and fast decision-making! I wrote about it on a daily […]

Radical Self Love Salon: A Recap, A Contest, And New Dates!

07.14.2014 · event

I spent my weekend with fourteen incredible women: laughing, crying, making magic and making mischief at the Radical Self Love Salon. As it was my first solo event ever, I was understandably nervous… But I needn’t have worried. It was 100% wonderful from start to finish. Everyone received a brightly-printed tote bag with a few goodies […]

We all wish we had more dollar bills in our wallets, but what’s the deal when you work your toosh off but never seem to gain any traction? Maybe it’s not the work you’re doing but the beliefs you hold that are the culprit. Mind-blowing, right? I met Sherold Barr, business mentor, master life coach, […]
