Day One // iPhone App Review

Day One // iPhone App Review

For as long as I have been able to write, I have been a journaler. I still have my very first journal, a hot pink number complete with a lock and key designed to protect the secrets that five-year-old Kendra would have been mortified to have discovered. Over the years, I have written my way… Continue Reading

Bill Gates once said, “Never before in history has innovation offered promise of so much to so many in so short a time.” It is an undisputed fact of our time that technology is progressing at an unprecedented speed, and for better or worse, our lives are being transformed by these technological advances.

Wall Mount Jewelry Organizer // Product Review

Like most (all?) women, I am crazy about accessories.  I’ve never met a purse, scarf, shoe, or necklace that I didn’t love.  And while I may not be totally confident in all aspects of the fashion arena, I feel like I’ve got accessorization nailed down.

Stitch Fix // Business Review

I love clothes.  I also love shopping.  As far as I can tell, these dual interests come with the territory of being a woman. Oddly enough, I don’t always love shopping for clothes.  I become overwhelmed by my options, or I am unsure about what items will be flattering or fit my “style.”  And seriously,… Continue Reading

Crunch Gym // Business Review

One of the great contradictions of our culture is that, while we are supposedly more overweight than ever before, we are also more obsessed with diet and fitness than in any other point in history.  Fitness centers across the country capitalize on this fixation, resulting in overpriced gyms that care more about their bottom dollar… Continue Reading
