Musings on Growing Up and Losing Friends

The Bliss Between

I’ve wanted to write a post about this since I started blogging, and haven’t. Because, well… it’s pretty darn personal. But tonight something struck me, and I decided to open a bottle of Montepulciano and go for it. In the beginning I used to think that life would get easier as I grew up. Turns out, not so much. And that’s true in a lot…

Setting Intentions

Erin Short The Bliss Between

Setting an intention doesn’t have to be relegated to a champagne-fueled lark made on New Year’s Eve, which is then promptly abandoned by January 15th. In fact, I tend to think New Year’s resolutions are kind of pointless. They’re good in theory… but not so much in execution. But setting monthly intentions… that’s something I can get behind. Why to set intentions? It’s a way…

Bet on Yourself

The Bliss Between

You know that feeling of dissatisfaction? The feeling of wanting, of needing more in your life? I had been feeling that lately. A lot actually, in the past nine months. For me, the dissatisfaction was coming from my career. I had a good job, don’t get me wrong. GREAT benefits. Stability. But it had ceased to be challenging. And it was never what I hoped…

Five Best Bargains in the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale

The Bliss Between Lilly Pulitzer

Lilly Pulitzer is a Southern gal’s best friend. The colorful prints and classic lines are the epitome of southern charm. But there’s more to Lilly than just “white girl’s camo” as a friend of mine once called it. I love the bright prints for a summer wedding or a day at Keeneland, but the solid colored pieces are what allow Lilly Pulitzer to be so…

adventures in yoga: SUP Yoga

Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga

There are so many new ways popping up to experience yoga… Surely you’ve seen the videos of baby goat yoga on your social media feeds? Then there’s nude yoga, yoga raves, and karaoke yoga, to name a few. On the other end of the spectrum, there are so many old ways to experience yoga that I’ve never tried either… inyengar, ashtanga, kundalini… and I want…

10 Ways to Pamper All Five Senses

Cha Cha's Salon

I’ve read a few self care articles lately that have knocked the art of pampering. I absolutely agree that there is way more to self care than a mani-pedi. Of course there is. And it’s important to note the difference between self care and pampering. But I also firmly believe that a little pampering can go a long way in creating a little bliss in…

You are NOT an idiot… stop calling yourself one

The Bliss Between

How many times a day do you call yourself an idiot? When you drop your phone on the ground? When you make a wrong turn? How often do you tell yourself you did something stupid? Maybe when you try to pay for coffee with your driver’s license instead of your debit card? Or perhaps when you accidentally put your cashmere sweater in the dryer? We…
