You may not know that in addition to being a lifestyle blogger, I’m a longtime sex columnist. Here’s why I’m still writing about sex, intimacy and pleasure and where you can find my latest stories.
Are you ready to travel again? We are. So this week’s challenge is all about packing! Joining me is my friend Berit Francis, one of the most stylish women I know. Whether you’re an “extra” chick like Berit or “basic” like me, you’ll find some great ideas to prepare for your next vacation.
My husband is traveling for work (remember that?) so I’m on my own this week. Here’s how I’m feeding myself well while doing very little actual cooking.
Hosting guests can be a challenge, but with a little planning it doesn’t have to be. This is my third season in Florida and I’m beginning to feel like an expert. Even with Covid precautions, we’ve had plenty of visitors. Since this condo is still new to us, I always ask each person, “Tell me what what would make it more comfortable in your room.” And they do. If you’re expecting visitors, or haven’t entertained in a while, I think you’ll find this list helpful.
What better way to kick things off than with a Spring fashion challenge? Joining me is my first official guest challenger—my lovely daughter, Emma Killeen. We decided to experiment with the super bright colors that are everywhere right now. Neon is a bold and playful trend that can be worn at any age, as long as you don’t mind getting noticed. Which we don’t.
Congratulations to Laura as she moves on to an exciting new stage of life. After all, that’s what Style Challengers is all about.

Today is the official start of fall and here in Chicago the shift in season is apparent. The temps have dropped, the skies are grayer and the trees are tinged with gold. Even though I love warm weather, I welcome this season. It feels like a fresh start. Here are a few things I’m switching up.
With the help of a denim expert and a fab friend, we tried on the latest styles and some old classics. Here’s everything you need to know about finding a flattering pair of jeans this Fall.
Celebrating our 30th Anniversary at the Award-Winning (and socially distanced) Twin Farms in Vermont
Where can you go to celebrate a milestone event during a pandemic? This boutique resort is a perfect blend of luxury and privacy, all in a gorgeous setting with a laid back vibe. Oh, and did I mention the food?
I had a busy social calendar last weekend and it felt both wonderful and weird. I’m vaccinated, but Covid is on the rise, so I’m not feeling completely secure. There are a lot of mixed messages about what’s safe to do right now. Things are fully open while enforcement of masks and vaccines is spotty. It makes it hard to know how to behave in social situations. Let’s figure it out!
A wonderful thing about being over 50 is having the confidence to go places on my own. Like last night’s concert at Millennium Park. Here are the advantages of going to an event solo.
