Why I Quit Poshmark
It was great while it lasted. But it’s over.
After a few years of great success buying and selling on Poshmark, I recently quit using it altogether. I was a top seller, with over 333,000 followers. I had regular repeat customers that were amazing (which is the biggest drawback to leaving the app…I loved these folks!)
But then I had a really bad customer service experience with Poshmark that caused me to wonder if all the time I was spending on the app was worth it. And it turned out that for me, it wasn’t. [more]

Whenever I need an instant mood boost, all I have to do is sit down and watch one of my favorite fashion movies.

5 Trends From Woodstock That Will Never Go Out of Style
Woodstock is the indisputable OG of music festivals. The fashion trends it spawned over fifty years ago have stood the test of time. They show up each and every year in new iterations, both on the runways and on the Instagram feeds of your favorite bloggers and influencers.
Over 400,000 people attended Woodstock in August of 1969 in Bethel, New York. It was advertised as a weekend of peace, love, and music. It quickly became one of the most influential moments in history. Hundreds of thousands of young people – dubbed “hippies” by mainstream society – proved to the world that they could gather in peace and love. And wished the world could do the same. (Yeah, that 1970s Coke commercial is playing in your head now, isn’t it?)
Woodstock influenced not only the music and the mindset of generations to come, but it also had a huge impact on the fashion industry. Many long-standing fashion trends still worn today have Woodstock to thank for their staying power.
So, in honor of peace, love, music, and fashion – here are five major trends immortalized at Woodstock that we bet you’re still wearing today. [more]

How to Beat the Winter Blues With Citizen Watches & Verilux
For most of January, I’ve just wanted to curl up in the fetal position and hibernate until pitchers and catchers report.
When I received an invitation to attend the Citizen “Beat Blue Monday & Get the Most Out of Light” event, I saw it as an opportunity to emerge from my funk and move towards the light. Literally.
Apparently, the third Monday of January is designated as “BLUE MONDAY” and is supposedly the most depressing day of the year. Some of the reasons behind this particular day being so bleak are that, well, for starters, it’s Monday. It’s January. It’s cold. The holidays are over and you’re faced with paying off debt from all that Christmas travel and gift-giving. Oh, and you’re three weeks into bailing on most of those New Year’s resolutions. [more]
