5 quick tips.  perhaps a bit ironic that i’m speeding through this topic seeing as the essence is slowing down.  new to meditation? still think it’s too hippy-dippy for you? well, it’s not. in fact, before learning the benefits of meditation, I too was a non-believer. however, due to the amount of resources (guided youtube videos, apps such as headspace) and the growing popularity among celebrities and athletes, meditation is becoming more mainstream. those monks were on to something… but what if you are willing, ready and curious about meditation but can’t seem to figure out where… View Post

i am overjoyed to be walking as a role model for Wear Your Label at their NYCFW debut  tomorrow! beyond overjoyed, i am humbled. i am thrilled not only because the experience is incredible, exciting + once in a lifetime (for non-model folk like myself)- but because i believe so deeply in what they are accomplishing as a brand. through this blog i too wanted to contribute to the discussion regarding mental health + in my own small way encourage positive habits. i planned to share my story, be myself + hopefully help others along… View Post
