The End of My Knee Modeling Career

Or Knee Surgery Is No Fun

April 9, 2014
Tags: , ,

Let it be known that I am not an athlete. I do not compete on the crucible of the turf nor any other test of strength yet I still managed to find myself in an orthopedic surgeon’s office hearing the dreaded words, “you’re most likely going to need surgery.” The knee is a funny, knobby, […]

or How to Get Seasick Without the Boat

May 1, 2013
Tags: ,

On my recent trip to New York City I was determined to squeeze in at least one yoga class since I would be missing two out of my normal 3x/week classes.  Because NYC is the land of all things painfully cool and bleeding edge I wanted to try a class I wouldn’t have access to […]

Botox for Migraines

or Bees, Now Available in Syringe Form!

February 13, 2013

You always remember your first…my first migraine was in middle school, 6th grade, after staring into a light board in technology class. I remember stumbling to the nurses office, throwing up in a tiny school issued trash can, and most likely having the nurse call my mom to come get me. I wasn’t properly diagnosed […]

New Year New Blog

or Blog, What Blog?

January 6, 2013

What blog indeed! It was a school project, then a editorial outlet/place to post pretty things, and then it was nothing.  So in the spirit of picking the confetti out of my hair and sopping up the remaining champagne with the remaining Christmas cookies (hey, that sounds like a yummy dinner idea) one of my […]

How I found my inner hippie

September 17, 2011

Secret confession time. Through much of high school I was a majorette. A baton twirling, parade marching, rhinestone wearing majorette. Don’t knock it until you you’ve tried it–it’s one hell of a work out! Then I went away to college and managed to stave off the freshmen 15 for 4 years by walking up hill […]

Is Customer Service Dead?

Don't bet on it

February 16, 2011

I’m a fanatical shopper – an online shopper, a brick and mortar shopper, a sale shopper, a full price shopper – if you’re selling, I’ll browse your wares. Within the past year I discovered the wonderful and addicting world of the online sample sale. While there are literally hundreds of these sites, allow me to […]

Extreme Makeover: Blog Edition

February 15, 2011

Not so much an extreme makeover, more like a reorganization of the by-laws. The initial intent of my cyber home was to have a place to publish dissections of articles pertaining to the world of journalism/media as well as a place to kvetch about editorial pet peeves. But…I’ve realized I need to expand my boundaries. […]

The Best Birthday Present an Editor Could Ask For

July 19, 2010

The 2010 journalist’s bible came out a few months ago and I’ve been waiting patiently to get my hands on it. For those not in the know, this latest edition includes some earth shattering changes that sent the editors attending the 2010 ACES conference into a twitter tizzy.  Needless to say, I’ll be spending the […]

A Proud Doggie Mommy

July 15, 2010

In addition to working full-time and “studenting” part-time, I’m also on the Board of Directors of The Barkyard, Buffalo’s only official off-leash area. As such, I must boast about our latest award bestowed upon us by Buffalo Spree Magazine. The Barkyard was named the “Best Place to Hang Out with Your Dog” as part of the magazine’s […]
