The Genesis

The Genesis

I am…an all-girl high school graduate, empowered to project my voice within a world of male dominance. “Aspire to be a doctor, lawyer, or entrepenuer,” they drilled into me. “Women can achieve the same success as men.” So, I became a feminist. Not a mis'andrist but simply a feminist. I am an advocate for social, [...]

Two “F” Words

Fun + Fashion. It’s your life, so e-n-j-o-y  it…first and foremost. I guess that’s why I’ve never stopped playing dress up. When it comes to fashion,  we don’t need a license to express ourselves freely. Yes, judgement wiggles its way into most things, but it doesn’t stop my fellow nefelibatas (those who refuse to obey [...]

Servin’ Face

"I definitely owe myself an apology for all the s*** that I let slide in my 20’s" (SZA). Being a twenty-something-year-old was flat out hard (for lack of a cuter word). There was a ton of doubt, first-time sorrows, ego-bruising, and to top it off…I grew an entire human in my uterus. Talk about the [...]

Unfortunately, Thanksgiving is always another story (rolls eyes).  Sunday, my birthday Eve, was spent enjoying all things simple: friendship, belly laughs, flavorful food, mimosas, chauffeured [...]

Writefully So

While almost everything around us continues to evolve, speed up, and offer instant results, we must not forget about those small but mighty gestures. The reality is, we all love receiving cards from our friends and family. Why? Because it shows us how much we are cared for. "Handwriting is intimate and reveals personality. We [...]

Fear vs Want

Trying to figure out your next move? Chasing what we love can lead us to amazing places, and tackling our fears can do the same. Don’t believe me?

Too Soon for HBD!

“Owning your feelings and your truth.” A simple positive vibe that makes me feel empowered (insert power pose) and definitely aligns with my beliefs. Well, I can’t just talk about it…I have to own it through my thoughts and actions.  So, here it is…my truth…deep breath. Turning 36 is just f***ed up and completely terrifying. [...]
