Ahhhh, Monday! The start of a new week. A fresh page, a blank slate. If you’re rolling your eyes or yawning or thinking, this lady is crazy… I hate Mondays, just hear me out for a sec. Sure, the last thing I want to do is peel myself out of my suddenly extra comfortable bed to

Yup, you read that right! Since I’d dubbed 2017 as my year of creativity, I’ve tried to go a little out of the box with my goals. Instead of telling myself to “run every day” (which, even as a former xc runner and avid racer, I know is not a realistic goal for ME) or

This post is adapted from a piece I wrote for the 2016 Mind Body Dialogues performance at Endicott College. I was always a little bigger growing up. Despite being involved in every sport you could think of, and teaching myself healthy eating habits, genetics got the best of me. I spent my childhood overweight and

Have you ever created a focus word for the year? 2016 was the first year I did it – the year of ambition – and I loved having a mantra to help me push through the times I wasn’t feeling so ambitious. This year I’ve created a new focus and I urge you to do

Confession: I’m high-key into goal setting. Even if you’re not a fan of New Years Resolutions, you can set goals anytime during the year to help you continue striving to be a better version of yourself! Here are a few ways that I like to set goals and prioritize what’s most important so that I can

GUYS I just plugged my camera into my new desktop for the first time and found photos of a bunch of recipes I tried out this summer. I had planned to share them but was so busy that I didn’t get around to the writing part…. then I forgot about the recipes altogether. Oops :/ BUT lucky for all of you, they’ve resurfaced! I’m

Last week I was lucky to be able to attend a Q&A session with Reshma Saujani, who spoke about raising girls to be brave rather than perfect. It really struck a chord with me.

Happy autumn! The official start of my favorite season has me jumping for joy…. and, quite frankly, so does September being over.

Every so often I get the feeling that it’s time for a drastic chop. Once I have the idea in my head, I know it’s just a matter of time before I decide to cut and donate my hair! Over the years I have donated my hair three 3 times- to 3 different organizations. There

Last year while interning abroad in San Jose, Costa Rica, I had the wonderful opportunity to create and implement my very own ESL lessons for adults. And now I want to share them with you!! Keep

I don’t know about you but August snuck up on me. All summer I felt like I was looking forward to August because, for me, that was when all the big things were happening. Well, August, you came in with a bang!

By July I had gotten into the swing of things. I was somehow getting up at 6 for work everyday and feeling like I had turned over a new leaf. I had been aching for an adventure after social media-stalking numerous friends of mine on their post-grad cross country road trips. In typical Erin fashion, I decided

After a few weeks hanging at the beach and hitting the gym, summer got on its way as I started my nannying job with the best little munchkins I could ask for. This month was a lot about transitioning to being back home and figuring future things out little by little.

May was intense. Being a senior in college, the entire month felt like a whirlwind of emotions. This month I:

If I’ve never mentioned it before, I am an avid Spotify user. I love being able to discover new music and have songs from any genre literally at my fingertips. (By the way, this is not an ad! I really do recommend it to everyone I know… Spotify, we can totally partner together here. I already do your marketing

I’ve seen a lot of vegan omelet recipes that called for tofu but recently I found this one from The Tasty K (which I modified a bit) that instead called for lentil or garbanzo bean flour. I have been wanting to try it out for weeks and finally had the chance so I’m excited to share it!

After weeks of meticulous editing, I am proud to say that the video of my semester in Costa Rica is finally up on YouTube!! The four months I spent in Central America brought with it some of the most indescribably wonderful moments of my life that I’m so happy to be able to share. Pura
