Hi! I’m Karen, a 30-something single mother trying to make the most of this life, documenting the bumps in the road along the way. I believe in failing, and sometimes even flailing…it really does make you stronger.
This is a blog and personal/professional development website serving as a reminder that no one has it all figured out – and that’s okay. Subscribe for advice and personal experiences on career, life, relationships, wellness, and motherhood. I will also be reblogging other sites that are giving stories or advice that I enjoyed, so please check them out, too.
This is thirty, flirty, and thriving meets real life – real talk paired with rosé.
I revel in my weirdness and my flaws, and hope you will, too. Check out my original blog here to get to know me even better.
Beauty is my business – I currently work for bareMinerals in Global Packaging + Creative Services (#sharethebare y’all!). I have worked in a variety of industries over the span of my career, including digital media, fashion & apparel, and most recently before Bare, wine and spirits (which only further cemented my love for rosé).
With a deep-seated passion for the arts, I found my home in NJ/NYC based nonprofit ARTS By The People, which focuses on making the arts easily accessible to all. I currently serve on the Board, and am also the Managing Editor of the Platform Review, our printed literary journal.
Last but not least, I am a writer before anything else (obv). I contribute to The Muse, Career Contessa, Fairygodboss, Elite Daily, and Thought Catalog, and have been featured in Business Insider, Fast Company, Inc., and Harvard Business Review for my career advice.
