OK guys, this is a major BRB announcement. Later today, I’m peacing out and heading HOME. Finally after almost two years, I’m hoping on the 24 hour flight and making my way back to my beautiful island in the sun: Singapore (more…)

Clarendon Double Race Recap


What a race experience! I have heard so much about these “double” or “hat trick” races and have always wanted to try them out. So when I saw that my favorite race organizers, Pacers, was putting on their own double, I had to sign up. Plus I loved the fact that this as a Saturday race, since I prefer running on Saturdays and taking Sundays off.  (more…)

Seriously Delish Potluck


As soon as I received my Seriously Delish cookbook, I knew I needed to try all the recipes. But it takes a while to cook so much food, and since it’s just me in the apartment right now I couldn’t possibly eat all the food myself! SO, I decided to host a potluck! A Seriously Delish-themed potluck. I knew a few friends with the cookbook and those that didn’t have the cookbook found recipes on the blog! (more…)

Dirty Damsel: My First Volunteer Race Experience!


I have run many, many races and every time I am always amazed at all of the volunteers that come out and help make the race happen. I’ve been telling myself for months that I’m going to volunteer for a race, but I always want to run the darn things! Last week I got a text from Logan asking if I wanted to volunteer at the Zooma Dirty Damsel race in Rosaryville and then check out the park on our for a trail run. I couldn’t turn that offer down. Volunteering turned into quite the Saturday adventure! (more…)

Friday Favorites


Happy October and TGIF! TG freaking IF. This week has been pretty rough. Restless nights of sleep, early mornings in the office, and general stress made this week draggggg and I’m so happy it’s the weekend. T-minus 13 days until I am en route to my island home in the sun…Singapore…not that I’m counting or anything. Despite having a less than stellar week, there were some things that definitely picked me up a bit.  (more…)

Introducing… A New Look!


Oh man was this a long time coming! I’m SO pleased to say that the new, and improved Life’s Philosophie has officially launched! Check it ouuutttt! I’ve been working on this for months and I’m super happy to be able to say that I did it all myself. Since I didn’t have the budget to hire someone to help with the redesign, I took it upon myself to learn as much as I could about Photoshop, coding, image mapping, etc. The good thing is that the internet is a remarkable place and I was able to use some fantastic resources to get me through.

SO, here’s the final product! I’m expecting that there might be some glitches in the beginning, so please let me know if you notice anything funky. But, of course, I’m hoping it works smoothly and offers a more enjoyable reader experience!

Enjoy! And let me know your thoughts!

P.S. I have an awesome giveaway later this week in honor of the new design! Stay tuned…

Cheese Glorious Cheese

TGIF! What a better way to kick of the weekend with some cheese talk. As many of you know, cheese is my favorite food group. Like I could eat it all day, every day, in any form. Grilled cheese, mac & cheese, cheese dip, fondue…you get the point. So when Whole Foods Tenleytown reached out to me on Twitter about their monthly cheese event, I couldn’t turn it down.
