I love the holidays! Especially when I get to take some time off from work and hang out with my family and friends.

My life is pretty crazy, and I am usually working around the clock. I run a digital media company with a staff of 25 and host my online talk show series for AOL ON, YouTube, and now, Amazon Prime. I produce and write for TV shows on my off time, too. Also, I am a new mom and learning how to juggle motherhood and a career. When the holidays roll around, I am excited to take a couple days off and just RELAX!

This holiday, I plan to rest a lot and try to sleep. I just read an article where Gwyneth Paltrow talks about sleeping 10-hours a day to live a healthy life. I’m gonna be honest, 10 hours seems like a luxury these days, with being a new mom and all! However, I do plan on trying to test out 8-hours for the days I have off — or at least try!

For my time off, I want to just lay low in LA and hit some of my favorite lunch spots with my husband and daughter before I take off for Aspen. I am a big fan of Mexican food and love the chips and salsa at Malo in Silverlake. We took the pics in this post at Malo on a family outing.

I am planning on taking a couple of days off before the new year to hit the mountains and just relax with my husband and daughter.2016 has been a crazy and intense year and I need time to review my year and revisit some important lessons I’ve learned, and where better to do that than in Aspen?!

It’s important to understand the life lessons, so you can move forward to a new year and new you.

Wishing everyone a happy holiday and I can’t wait to show you guys what I have in store for 2017.
