I’m “that” friend. You know, the one who is always reading the self-help books or shoving crystals in her bra. The one who tries making her own deodorant while wearing an Albert Einstein graphic t-shirt. The one who totally forges her own path and somehow makes it all work. Personally, I like to think I’m a cross between a hipster millennial, a driven entrepreneur, and a bohemian world traveler. And I always have fun, exciting, BRILLIANT (in my person
Monday November 13th, 2017 is a date that will be forever engraved in my memory. My mind is still buzzing from all the impressions of the day. Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? I’ve read about the Glamour Women of the Year Summit, but I had never considered attending. How would I even go about scoring a ticket? Well, Tall Sisters, sometimes you have to speak things into existence! The stars aligned that day and your girl went to
If you do an online search for exercises for tall people, you’ll come up with pages upon pages of articles targeted towards men only. Exercises specifically for tall women are harder to find.

Kyle proposed to me after our The Tall Society photoshoot, at a place we reserve for celebrating beginnings and endings of chapters in our New York lives: The Plaza Hotel. Most of the engaged I meet aren’t actually surprised about the proposal. They’ve discussed the future in serious tones and decided marriage is an inevitability of
THEN When I was a teenager, I loved the idea of living out a romantic comedy. Never Been Kissed was and still is my favorite movie. I just always imagined myself bumping into someone, spilling coffee on them and then spending the rest of our lives together. I would try and manipulate situations. I remember this one time I was attending a friend’s show. They were performing in a community theater production of Seussical The Musical. It was a cute
There’s literally no way for me to avoid the awkward nature of this topic, so I’m just going to dive right in. I once was offered $75,000 for my eggs. As in…my lady eggs. I know you may be thinking, ”No way, she’s lying!”, but my husband, family, and close friends can attest to the fact that this did, in fact, happen.
