my top three tricks for staying healthy as a #girlboss

Side-hustler, weekend warrior, momboss – whatever we choose to call ourselves, we’re freakin’ busy making our dreams come true! For me, working full-time as a nanny to some adorable, but picky, littles makes it really hard for me to eat healthy sometimes – when I’m already whipping up plates of macaroni and cheese with a side of pizza, where do I find the time to make myself a good lunch, too?

A special Charleston day for a sweet birthday girl

Y’all, it’s better late than never on this one – for two weeks now, I’ve been trying to get around to posting about the girls’ day that Kay & Co did for the sweetest birthday girl, Mara, near the end of May.

Mara asked me in April to plan a girls’ day out for her and a few friends; I was, of course, happy to oblige and got started making plans right away. Mara knew she wanted to do something outdoorsy, and she also wanted to do a flower crown class -– I took it from there to orchestrate the perfect celebratory day for Mara and her girls.
