This year was my second in a row of traveling to Italy, but my first time teaching a styling workshop there! I’ve shared lots of info in the past about the Style Your Life workshop that I co-taught with food stylist Maren Ellingboe King and Sarah Abare of The Stemmery.

Jet lag… woof. When I got back from Italy last week, I felt like I’d been run over by a bus. Not only did I catch a cold while I was there, but my return trip ended up taking about 20 hours. When I got home, allllll I wanted to do was sleep, despite knowing that the best way to cure jet lag is to simply stay awake until it’s a normal bedtime in the new timezone. But with a cold?
