    The Truth About Why I Went Vegan-*Ish*

    Okay I’ll just jump right in and explain why I say Vegan-*ish*. It’s because in general I don’t like labels. It’s so committal. And people who know me know that I am noncommittal- by far. I don’t like boxes, and I don’t like expectations and rules. It sounds absolutely absurd- me saying it out loud. But it’s true. The truth is, I do have a deeply personal reason for changing my diet. Other than the fact that I am seriously overweight. It was August, I was just stepping off of a flight for a work conference. I got a phone call. It was my sister. The news she gave me…

    Want Long Eyelashes Without Expensive Lash Extensions?

    Think about it. You wake up, probably late if you are like me because you hit the snooze button a million times *sighs*,  and you have 10 minutes to leave the house… I know for me most days I am okay going without the makeup (thanks to my great skincare regimen), but y’all MY LASHES! I know I am not alone when I say I feel naked without mascara. This would be a morning I would grab a tube of mascara and lip gloss and quickly apply in the car en route to wherever I am going. But what if I told you your lashes could actually look darker, longer,…

    The Art Of Staying True To Your Art

    It was finally here. The day I had been waiting, stressing, sweating, talking about, dreading, losing sleep over for the past several months was finally here: I was moving. Yep. I was packing my country-loving Louisiana ass up and heading to Jersey. I was trading in my camo and cowboy boots for leapord print EVERYTHING, Italians, and the Jersey Shore.  When you live where I did most of my life, people who moved away were always referred to as the ones who “got out”. And I was making my escape. I was living such a comfortable, simple, yet extraordinary life. I had built a copywriting business for myself which I…

    Feeling Stuck? Here’s How You Can Get More Shit Done. (It’s Not What You Think)

    You come home after a long day of work. Tired, smelly, and can’t be fucked with anything other than getting in a hot shower and going straight to your bed for some much-needed rejuvenation. It’s the ending to a long, but productive day, and all you want is to step into a steamy hot shower to relax, recap the day, and wash away the feeling of running around in the city all day. (NYC peeps you know what I’m talking about). You take off your clothes, step into the piping hot water, dip your head under and let out a sigh of relief… then something happens… You can feel the…

    Monday Morning Coffee: The Haves And The Have Nots

    I live in one of the richest zip codes in America. 78% of the population here has a household income of more than 150k per year while only 9% of the total US population makes this much. This folks, is the land of the “Haves”. Million dollar homes are the norm, and the price of admission (meaning even owning a home in the zip code) is over half a million dollars. Living in the land of the “haves” now, as opposed to the “have-nots” I wonder a lot about what these people do differently. So what makes these people different? Why are they  in the top 10% in the nation?…
