This post is 2 months late but since I did some of my best packing to date for our weeklong trip to Portugal, I figured better late than never. I spent about an hour throwing my favorite basics into a suitcase and we were off. My outfits were simpler than ever–I …

Last fall, we started working with a team of developers and designers to relaunch The Everygirl. Earlier this week, it finally went live! It’s so clean and easy to navigate, and our handbooks are pretty fantastic if I do say so myself. Earlier this week, I invited anyone following me to message me on …

After spending three days in Lisbon, Portugal, we took the train to Porto. It was love at first sight. While walking through the city we stumbled upon this miradouro as the sun set and it was magic. The tiles in Porto are even better than those of Lisbon. The only thing I couldn’t …

Two weeks ago we spent a week in Lisbon and Porto, Portugal, leaving just 24 hours after our engagement and surprise engagement party. The food, wine, architecture, and history were everything I hoped they’d be. And the azulejos (tiles) were perfect. There aren’t direct flights from Chicago so we had a layover in Dublin …

Over the past few weeks I’ve gotten a handful of emails asking for recommendations on things to do and see in Chicago. I usually refer people to The Everygirl’s Chicago weekend city guide but have a few more recommendations that didn’t make the cut. And half of what’s on that …

On March 11, Conor asked me to marry him. He followed the proposal with drinks and dinner, a surprise engagement party, a brunch with friends, and we flew to Lisbon and Porto, Portugal later that evening. It’s been one of the best weeks of my life–a whirlwind for sure! Thank you …

The Everygirl turned five last week and along with being half-a-decade old, there are some really exciting things happening for our team. We’re working a very big and exciting project that I can’t wait to share with you, our office kitchen remodel is almost done, and we’re teaming up with Paramount …

We’re two weeks away from leaving for Portugal and I’m determined to do a better packing job than my last few trips. Last summer, I went from Italy to France and just assumed it would be warm in Paris since it was so hot in Italy. Wrong! I didn’t do a terrible …

We launched The Everygirl to inspire women to live their best lives. And our site turned five yesterday, so in celebration of the beginning of our 6th year, I thought I’d share some of my favorite stories that we’ve run the past five years. If you’re a reader of The Everygirl, I’d love to …

The Everygirl is FIVE! We launched the site on 2.22.12, a day I remember like it was yesterday. I grabbed a bottle of wine and hopped in a cab heading to Alaina’s Southport apartment to celebrate the moment the site went live. And here we are a half a decade later! I was a …
