What If

Today I’m celebrating one week of living in New York. I am currently sitting in my apartment, sipping tea in bed and enjoying a much needed, relaxing Sunday afternoon. I have a huge window with the view of skyscrapers as my backyard, and my room is slowing growing and morphing with character, as the sparkly…

Evolution

When I first began my journey into becoming a “creative” and “side hustler,” I looked to women and influencers for inspiration, support, and leadership. These bloggers, authors, mentors, and gurus have helped me through some dark days, long nights, joyous mornings, and times of success. Today I am proud to say that, while still a…

How It Feels

I’ve been home for four days and I think all I’ve heard is “How does it feel to be a graduate?” Rightfully so. I also think I’ve underwhelmed those who have asked this, because it doesn’t feel like much. No existential change or emotions. If anything, it feels like a sigh of sweet, sweet relief. It…

I never really went through a bad acne phase in high school, but I’ve also had some other challenges. My biggest…

I’m Changing

I’ll let you in on a secret: 2016 was the year I decided that my life desperately needed to change. Some might label what I experienced as coming-of-age growing pains, but there were parts of me that I knew were not going to change or improve unless I took serious actions to put myself on…

An Unpopular Opinion

Many bloggers tend to start writing “reflection” posts at the end of 2016, or write some sort of beginning of the year goal-oriented saga about how they are going to be better people, work out more, eat less, blah blah blah. This year, my version of all of this was simply looking backing on moments…
