Anxiety is a beast. I’ve written before about how I never really experienced it until having children, and how my experience of postpartum anxiety really made me sympathetic to people who struggle with it. This past week on We Gotta Talk I interviewed the co-founder of Rewrite and Rise, Cody Isabel, who gave us some amazing advice on breaking bad patterns; how to spot a narcissist; what the “Belief Wheel” is and how to manifest positivity; and more. But today, I want to share with you his method for getting through anxiety, which he calls the M.E.W.S. Method. Let’s dive in on what it is, and ..read more

This past week on WGT I got the chance to interview the awesome Laney Schwartz, creator and culinary mind behind Life is But a Dish. Now here’s the thing: I come from a long line of great cooks (hi, Mom!), but I don’t consider myself one. But I want to get better! I mean, I’ve got a few tried-and-trues—soups and chilies—but I’m looking for more options. And basically, Another reason I want to cook more is I just feel better when the kids eat home-cooked meals. No judgment on takeout—we basically existed on UberEats this summer—but it’s time I whip my kitchen into shape. If you’re on a journey ..read more

Kicking off the summer with our anniversary trip to Italy. A view from the most incredible hotel in Positano, Il San Pietro. Hi all! I can’t believe it—summer vacation is almost over.  I know we all say the same thing—“it goes so fast!”—but boy is that ever true.  Every year the speed at which the kids grow seems to ratchet up. Honestly, yesterday I was just changing diapers, now I’m forcing a reluctant 9.5 year old to slow dance with me in the living room to a chorus of, “You’re so cringe, Mom!” (But also with a smile, and still dancing with me anyway. Hmmmm… ;)  But seriously ..read more

Dork alert: Organization is one of my favorite pastimes. Could it be some of my childhood OCD reemerging? Perhaps! Ha! But honestly, there’s little I love more than making our spaces a little more organized, effective and clean. Remember the Great Clean-Out of 2020?! I’ve been on a minimizing, purging and organization tear ever since. It keeps a girl going… what can I say. Recently I had the opportunity to organize and upgrade a space in our house we hadn’t addressed much before—our garage. I was approached by Hello Garage, a company that specializes in garage organization, floor coating and ..read more

Dr. Whitney Bowe is a New York-based dermatologist, scientist and regular contributor to Good Morning America who’s called on regularly for her deep knowledge on all things skin health. She and I have been Instagram friends for years. I first was introduced to her when she released her book, “The Beauty of Dirty Skin,” which I read and loved for its revolutionary idea that we need dirt—good germs particularly—on our skin to keep it at its healthiest. In the years since she’s totally blown up on Instagram, TikTok and TV, and I just love seeing her be able to spread actual good info and advice o ..read more

Life Lately and the Start of Summer

Poolside snuggles from last year   Friends! It’s high time we had a little personal catch-up. School’s been out here for about three weeks now, and we are firmly into our summer schedule—or lack thereof. My daughter did one camp one week, my son did one another week, and our 5-year-old… she misses out for now. ? All camps start around the same time, so rather than stress myself out about getting all of them to different camp locations at the same time, I’m staggering camps this year. The added bonus is that it gives me some special alone time with the other kids while the other is in cam ..read more

There are some skincare products that are cult classics for a reason, and Dr. Dennis Gross’s Daily Peel Pads are one of them. These peel pads are a daily dose of gentle exfoliation that even my sometimes-sensitive skin can tolerate well. And recently they released a three-step kit that includes not only the peel pads, but also their AHA/BHA Daily Cleansing Gel, and the Alpha Beta Daily Moisturizer. I was recently sent this kit to try and wanted to share my honest thoughts.  The Perfect Kit for Skincare Starters Who Want Results To me, this kit is the perfect starting point for someone w ..read more

There is no way to properly express the sadness it elicits to even have to write an article like this, but we promise real talk on big topics here on We Gotta Talk, and there is no bigger topic than our kids’ safety and lives. This past week I interviewed security and threat assessment expert Dave Benson on my podcast, and I wanted to break down some of the important advice he gave on preventing and surviving school shootings. For my parents out there squirming in your chairs even reading this, I feel you. It’s awful that we are here. But I also believe it is better to address these things he ..read more

The Best Nude Lip Combos for Light-Medium Skin (with Olive Undertones)

The lip combo I reach for the most, no matter what I’m wearing day or night, is a classic nude lip. There’s something about how it’s just as “undone” as it is “done” that works with every look. Here are some favorite lip combos I’ve tried over time—from my 15 years working in television when I wore lipstick every day, to today! Lots of years of trial and error here, guys. ? For reference, my skin is light-medium to medium, with olive undertones. I wear Bare Minerals Original Foundation in Medium Beige 12; Tower 28 SunnyDays in Mulholland; and Honest CCC in Dune.  Best Nude Lip Liner #1 ..read more
