Saint Patrick’s Day Alternatives

Saint Patrick's Day Alternatives if you're sick of green beer and LED necklaces...

Saint Patrick’s Day may have honorable historical roots, but the current celebratory trappings make me cringe. For starters, you’ve got sparkly plastic necklaces with LED strobe lights, striped knee-high socks (can we just ban these already?), and *shudder* green beer. ‘Nuff said. As a form of self-respecting protest, I’ve collected some of my favorite fun alternatives to bring more green into your world this Saint Patrick’s Day – sans the socks. Saint Patrick’s Day Alternative #1: Eat Green One of my absolute favorite ways to eat my veggies is in a smoothie! Baby kale or baby spinach have a light, elusive…

The Spring Fashion Transition

Transitioning from Winter into Spring fashion is difficult enough to drive a groundhog back into his hole! Luckily I kept notes last year... and I'm sharing them with you!

I have no idea what to call this time of year… Wring? Sprinter? Whatever you call it, it’s a challenge to my closet. Trying to balance the layers, the colors, the temperatures… transitioning from Winter into Spring fashion is enough to drive a groundhog back into his hole! Luckily, I kept a few notes last year, and I’m spilling the details for how to make this seasonal transition in a classy and non-chilly way! See what I mean – Check out my Pinterest board for Transitional Fashion Color Me Happy Keep the weights and styles of winter clothing, but try…

A Hopeful Valentine’s Day

What if Valentine's Day finds you with a bleeding heart? Take hope, darling. // leesirwin.com

When Valentine’s Day rolls around, I try to avoid the drugstore. Sometimes I just can’t muster the energy for hearts and roses. The candy is noxious (sorry, conversation hearts). The hot-pink stuffed bears are mildly disturbing. Worst of all, the chocolate is sub-par! That’s where I absolutely must draw the line. 🙂 Love is a wonderful thing, but the cellophane-wrapped declarations of adoration come nothing close to it. And this year, I give you complete permission to ditch the whole thing. Love Yourself on Valentine’s Day – and Every Day! Your closest relationships may be romantic, platonic, or non-existent. It doesn’t matter,…

How I Fly Across the Country and Show Up Sane (Some of My Best Healthy Travel Tips)

Travel destinations are delightful, but getting there comes with a high price to your health. Here's my top healthy travel tips for arriving sniffle-free! // leesirwin.com

Travel destinations can be delightful, but getting there can come with a high price to your health. The literal experience of “getting away” exposes your poor body to a multitude of germs, bad sleep opportunities, time zone trials, and over-processed air. I’m fortunate to travel frequently – this year I’m planning multiple trips to California and Costa Rica, and up to New York to visit family. I’m excited, of course, but these trips won’t be much fun if I show up with exhausted sniffles! Here’s some of my top favorite products, techniques, and tips for healthy travel. Glow, Baby, Glow…

Reflecting on 2015: Finding My Way

Maze

It’s been a quiet month around here… well, on the outside at least! On the outside, I’ve been cozying up in front of the fire and drinking as much tea as possible. But inside, I’m feeling the stirrings of energy again. I have new ideas – new thoughts and ways of thinking. New strength and new resolve. Reflecting on the past year has played a big part of this. The further away I get from New Year’s Eve, the better my view gets of the year: what worked, what didn’t, and what can be done about it. The distance gives me…

What Happens When You Reach Out + A Gift

What Happens When You Reach Out

Yesterday was amazing! I took a risk and got pretty darn honest this week. I revealed some struggles I’m having in this new year, and I invited you to come with me as I work through them. Wow, was I overwhelmed with the response! The love came from all directions – women filled my feeds and inbox with sweetness for hours:   “Your post could not be timed any better…I’m with you sister.” “Totally relate with your sentiments. And can’t wait to get more behind the scenes with you!” “LOVE LOVE LOVE.” I guess we made a connection. 😉 A…
