    Gui Buratto was basically the soundtrack to the early years of life in our Chelsea apartment when we were kinda young and a little crazy and absolutely carefree. Four seconds into this song and all I can hear is Rahul cracking open a couple of Leffes and sinking into our then-very-adult-purchase of a West Elm sofa with a self-satisfied ahhhh at 6 p.m. on a Friday after work. Last weekend both the boys visited NYC from Miami—the first time they’d both been here since they’d moved out. We clubbed, we brunched, we day drank on boats like it was 2011 and we were newly intoxicated with our…

    Well, the highlights of the past week would have to be as follows: the weather returning to normal human temperatures (can I get a hallelujah?), getting my hair done on Saturday (and having the whole morning/afternoon to myself!), and finally feeling like early mornings have become somewhat of a habit (I keep waking up naturally around 6AM, which is totally bizarre).I still struggled a lot with patience, frustration over our maintenance being done on our duplex (so much dust, so much disarray), and general crabbiness. I don't know what it is lately, but I'm constantly on the edge. What's odd…

    [September Update] Don’t buy anything except gas and groceries. Success. (Mostly. I bought the pacifiers and an app). I went into Target exactly ONCE (for peanut butter – they have the cheapest natural peanut butter. Did I really just admit that? My life is so exciting I can’t handle it), which is pretty amazing considering most months I’m there weekly. It’s so liberating and freeing to just not have the choice of purchasing things. It definitely helped me get started on a habit I want to develop – waiting at least a week before purchasing something I think I…

    He: -Is getting more baby-like every day, which is so super fun. Smiling, grabbing at toys, and generally just acting like a tiny human instead of like a cuddly blob that cries. (I mean, I LOVE babies. But let’s be honest.) It’s like he’s a butterfly emerging from the cocoon of newbornhood. – “Is so happy when he’s not crying.” (-My dad). Which basically sums up the entirety of Theo at this age. So sweet and so happy and so freaking adorable…except he does cry. Though that is definitely getting less frequent and more manageable. Hooray! –…

    Motherhood is teaching me many things – humility, the importance of humor, how stinky little feet can be, and how fast time flies. Yesterday I walked to pick Gabe up from preschool. It’s only a mile away and on a nice day, I like to walk for a little fresh air and exercise. I had Theo in the Ergo and it was a little walk that took less than 20 minutes on the way to pick Gabe up. On the way home, however, it took us 45 minutes to walk one mile. I found myself getting frustrated and wanting to rush Gabe along instead of stopping to pick grass or crunch leaves or stop in the shade…

I shared the pros and cons of self-employment as a mother, the biggest tip I have for living frugally, and how I navigate that ever-popular topic of work-life balance. Since I spent Friday afternoon nursing a baby while typing one-handed to meet a deadline and had a sleeping baby snuggled against my chest in an Ergo for a client call the week before, this seems like an apt discussion I…

    I accomplished not even a third of my to do list yesterday. It wasn’t an ambitious to do list by any means. I have been doing this thing where I break my tasks up into 15-20 minute chunks. It’s supposed to be more “doable.” But somehow I cannot manage to do it. And it’s not even like I was doing something fun instead, like lying on the couch watching Netflix.  The entirety of my accomplishments: I did two loads of laundry (mostly put them away) and made dinner. (Oh! And I made biscotti. Because apparently I have priorities and they are: baked goods.) And in…

    Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been on a path of self-discovery. Well, I guess I’m always on that path, but I’d say 2014 has been the (not very well planned) year of figuring out “Who Is Sydney” vs. “Who Everyone Expects Sydney To Be” – and it hasn’t always been pretty. I could sit here and say that everything about 2014 so far is sunshine and rainbows, but then I’d be lying. And if you know me, you know I’m not good at lying, which is why I gave it up a long time ago. So, who is Sydney? That’s a good fucking…

Our friend Chris took his own life in January of this year. Barry got promoted to School Manager at Skydive Elsinore. We adopted Herbie, another Puggle. My uncle Mike passed away.

Think, Chipotle for food, and Southwest Airlines, JetBlue, and Norwegian Cruise lines to name a few excellent travel experiences as of late. When you find a brand who does the in-person experience as well as they do the online brand experience, it’s a magical thing. I’ve already shared the story of how the Four Seasons in Denver won our hearts for our pre-wedding and wedding-night stay. To…

I haven’t been to a Benihana-type restaurant with B yet, but I’m pretty sure he’ll be wowed by my shrimp-catching skills.

I did taxes by myself. I even tried to do complex graphics and logo redesigns by myself.  I constantly functioned in a state of overwhelm trying to do every last thing myself, not realizing that it would have saved me stress and probably been highly more efficient to hire someone else to professionally do those tasks.  At the time, I was broke- I couldn’t afford $300 for an accountant.

  • What Paula Deen Can Teach Us About Online Media.

    24 Sep 2014 | 6:19 am
    Last year, you might remember that the Food Network dropped Paula Deen during the whole racism debacle. Paula Deen just announced that she bought all of her content back from the Food Network, and is launching a paid subscription online food channel. AND I AM COMPLETELY OBSESSED WITH HOW MUCH MONEY SHE IS GOING TO MAKE. This is so smart. And it means so much for the media world, but no one is talking about it and it is killing me. Paula Deen buying all of her content from the Food Network is proof that the entire media/celebrity industry has been flipped on its head. Personal brands hold all…

    I have mentioned before that I am completely obsessed with Myers Briggs. I have read so much about every single personality type that I am now the master of guessing anyones personality type. Last week, a blogger friend of mine asked for help figuring out her child’s personality type. I jumped at the chance, and after fifteen minutes of reading her blog I pegged her daughter as an ISFP. Understanding my kids personality type made parenting so much easier. It became totally clear on what I needed to do to meet all of my kids needs. I now had a map to understanding their values and motives…

  • The State of Advertising (for Publishers)

    cassie
    9 Aug 2014 | 6:53 am
    I have spent the past month researching the best ways for publishers to monetize their platforms with advertising. I had two different clients hire me to review their current display ad network, and identify the best way for them to increase this revenue. So I talked to every ad network in the market, and googled insane things like “programmatic advertising.” Two years ago I was charged with building an online ad network for a major publisher, and the ad network industry today looks nothing like it did then.  Here is what I learned: 1.

    Before last December, I’d briefly visited Montreal and Vancouver, but the idea of moving to Canada never crossed my mind. Then my fiancée/common-law husband landed a new job opportunity in Victoria, British Columbia and six weeks later, we were packing […]
