BLOG HAPPY // 10 Things Every Successful Blog Needs [Part 1]

Back in May, I started the #BlogHappyChallenge, which is a two-week email challenge designed to help frustrated bloggers learn to “blog happy” again. One of the complaints I hear most from bloggers is that they often find blogging “frustrating” and “complicated.” The #BlogHappyChallenge is designed to help us bloggers get to a place where we […]


STYLE | #HustleSundays in Central Park

Quentin and I spent yesterday afternoon working a bit in Central Park. At first we’d about doing another coffee shop, but it’s nice to just be totally outside sometimes. I feel like being outdoors gives me space to think, to breathe. The past two weeks have been so insane, but this weekend has been peaceful, […]


MIND + BODY | Building “Healthy Habits” with OLLY Vitamins

This post was made possible by a great partnership with OLLY. I’ve been compensated for my participation, which is pretty awesome, but all opinions stated above are 100% mine. Thanks for supporting the brands that work with blogs like The Feisty House! I just remembered that July means we’re halfway through 2015! This is a […]


STYLE | A Day at The Getty Center, Los Angeles

Happy July! I hope you enjoyed Independence Day weekend and had a lovely time celebrating with family and friends. I was in California for July 4th and had so much fun wedding-ing, tourist-ing and soaking up all the beauty that California has to offer. The weather was just about perfect the four days I was […]


LIFE | 3 Tips for Getting Better Sleep

I was inspired by the good folks at Casper (a new sleep company based in New York City that makes outrageously comfortable mattresses that contour to your body and keep you cool while you’re sleeping!) to share my tips for a good night’s sleep. This post is timely for two reasons: (1) I just made […]


DREAM JOB Interview // Merced Saint Boyce of BLAC Minerals Cosmetics

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been doing one of my favorite things: speaking with tons of lady entrepreneurs. And it’s been wonderful. I’m so happy that we have brand new DREAM JOB Interviews on The Feisty House again! I can’t wait for you to meet all these fascinating women and hear their amazing stories […]


Switching It Up // How I Developed My Business Idea

I’ve been keeping a secret. You see, I’m trying something new, you guys. Something I’ve never done before. Something I have absolutely no experience doing. Something I pray becomes a successful business. It all started 2 1/2 years ago, when I moved to New York. I was spending a decent mount of time with Quentin […]


BEAUTY | Trying Flat Twists

Happy Monday, and I hope you had a great weekend! Since I cut my hair, I’ve been using perm rods to style it. On Friday night I was feeling super lazy and just couldn’t bring myself to wash and set my hair though, so I tried flat twists in my short hair for the first […]


WEEKLY WORD // Let’s Be Tulips

Tulips have become one of my favorite flowers. Their arrival means that Spring is finally here! I always look forward to seeing the first tulips of the season start to bloom around the city. Tulips are also my Quentin’s pick when he gives me “just because” flowers, and for that reason alone they hold a […]


LIFE | 5 Books That Will Change Your Life

For the past year or so, I have been reading a lot more. I’ve always loved to read (I was an English major in college), but I stopped doing as much leisurely reading once I started working (I did a lot of reading for work). I started reading for myself again about a year or […]

Women's Devotional // Praying For Yourself | The Feisty House

WEEKLY WORD // Praying for Yourself

I pray several times a day. You know, the quick “Lord, tell me what to say in this meeting” or “Please don’t make me miss this train” prayers. When I sit down to really pray, I start with thanking God for my blessings, and then I go into my prayer list. I pray for everyone.  […]


STYLE | Getting Back to Basics

I love clothes, and when I go shopping, I have a tendency to buy things that are bright and bold and may or may not work with anything else in my closet. I just buy what I like, but not always what I need, and I NEVER buy basics (seriously, I don’t even own a […]


BEAUTY | Taking Care of 30-Year-Old Skin

I just bombarded you with photos of my bare, 30-year-old face (sans everything, including a decent eyebrow) because it’s confession time, and who makes a confession in a face full of makeup? Turning 30 was pretty awesome. But for the the past few weeks, being 30 has been a little scary. Let me explain… I’ve […]
