Must Visit Spots in LA (from an ex-angelina)

A lot has changed in the LA scene since I lived in the city (pre-Cvid times). Luckily, I’ve been able to come back to visit a few times every year and keep up with it to a certain extent. Last month’s visit allowed me enough time to check out a bunch of new spots as well […]

My 2023 Festival Tips & Outfits

We just got back from Coachella with REVOLVE and it was the most incredible “work” trip of my life. This was my fourth time attending Coachella but my first time being hosted by a brand so that made it extra special. The Revolve team went above and beyond to make every moment of the weekend […]

Our Nutritional Philosophy

Introduction. It has been some time since Lya or I have discussed our eating habits, so today I’m writing to provide an update. In this blog, I will discuss my philosophical approach to nutrition followed by the system I’ve designed to reduce decision making and maintain dietary principles.  In whichever domain of life, I find […]

Must See Las Vegas Shows

Although I left my nightclub phase back in my early twenties, my love for Las Vegas prevailed. Last month, Nicky and I decided to go back to celebrate Valentine’s Day there.

Conflict Resolution Tips – Part 3

The Feelings Conversation As I described in my last entry, there are generally three types of core conflicts that emerge between partners. The “what happened” conversation arises out of disagreement as to what factually occurred, often leaving each party pointing the finger at the other. In this next conflict, the feelings conversation, a more insidious […]

Valentine’s Day Ideas & Outfit Inspiration

Let’s talk Valentine’s Day plans. In the five years Nicky and I have been together, we have celebrated the holiday in a variety of ways ranging from grimy (but fun af*) concerts to ‘pinky’s up’ dinners and everything in between. Before Nicky and I met, and back when I was single, my girlfriends and I […]

My Updated Workout Routine

Given the new year, I thought it would be a good idea to discuss my workout regime for 2023. Since The Lya Process Pt 1 & 2, Nicky and I have learned that the volume and intensity of my workouts were too high and that some exercises were simply not effective given my goals. We […]

Our Joint New Year’s Resolutions

Let’s talk relationship resolutions. Whether you’re just starting out with someone, living together or married, it’s important to look back every so often and analyze the habits we’ve been forming to determine what works and what doesn’t.
