    Cassadee Pope Hits an All-Time High with ‘Thrive’

    Cassadee Pope is no stranger to breaking the rules and paving a path that’s uniquely her own.

Little did I know then that I was embarking on an 11-year adventure that would change my life in so many meaningful ways. From…

It’s not over, but we do finally see the light at the end of the tunnel as U.S. mask mandates are lifted and travel plans are a go. After more than a year in lockdown, I’m getting my second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine shot today. I can’t wait! I was fearful of what the rushed-to-market vaccine would do long-term and originally thought I’d be late to the vaccine game. I’ve never had a flu shot after all. But after a year of…

    5 Things: I’m Watching on TV During Quarantine

    Listen, quarantine has been rough. Every day feels like Groundhog Day. I go to my socially distant gym, work from my converted home office, cook dinner, watch some TV with my husband and pups, go to sleep, and then repeat… every single day. And while Hollywood has spent most of 2020 in shutdown mode, TV has managed to deliver some saving graces to this pandemic nightmare we’re living in. The Undoing This thrill-seeking who-done-it is easily the best thing on TV right now. Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant deliver major Emmy’s vibes in this HBO Max drama that has more twists and turns than a winding mountain freeway. Every few…
