Labor Day

Amidst an emotional time at work, these fools were a pretty good distraction. If there's one thing I learned these past couple of days, it is to savor every moment...

Hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend and thank you to everyone who traveled across the country to be here with us! It was definitely one for the record books...

Work & Life

This is my life in a nutshell. A constant struggle with my work/life balance ratio. These past couple of months I've taken on new projects in addition to my full-time job and blogs, projects I dreamed of having, but projects that have led to two minor meltdowns and one slight panic attack. 

I was getting everything I wanted, but I was also getting in over my head. And I knew that. I thought I would try bikram yoga to relieve the stress. Let me give you a tip: If you suffer from panic attacks and claustrophobia, being surrounded by sweaty old men in speedos doing downward dog will be your own personal hell. 

This past Sunday I caught up with my friend and mentor, the amazingly talented screenwriter behind the movies Stepmom and Because I Said So, who was also struggling with balance in life. But she said something that stuck with me. She said, "If we aren't stopping to have fun, then what is all of this for?"

So this Labor Day, let's stop. The work will always be there, but it's the life that passes you by. Savor every moment with your friends and family this long weekend Un-Brides, I know I will be!

See you all Monday...

VMA Best & Worst Dressed

Happy Monday UnBrides! Below are my picks for the Best and Worst Dressed at the MTV Video Music Awards...

What were your thoughts?

Best Dressed: Katy Perry & Riff Raff. Anyone who comes dressed as vintage Denim Britney & Justin wins. HANDS DOWN.

Best Dressed Runner-Up: Beyonce. It's sexy done right and not verging on desperate (ie. see JLO's dress from that night)

Worst Dressed: Amber Rose. Not under any circumstance would this ever be okay. Not ever.

Worst Dressed Runner-Up: Ariana Grande. I get it. I loved my jeggings (verging on pajama jeans) because they were comfortable. But when you get a hole in your jeans, you know you wear them too often. Ditch the boots and hair gurl. It's about knowing when to let go.

(Don't worry I still have my fat days when I wish I never threw those damn jeggings away...)
