Put Fear in the Back Seat

What if you lived your life like Beyonce?

Hey, Like most of you, I was completely in awe with Beyonce’s performance at Coachella this past weekend. I felt so much #BlackGirlMagic pride throughout the entire thing — her tribute to HBCUs, her shout-out to historically Black fraternities and sororities, the array of Black music she showcased, the words of Nina Simone and Malcolm […]

What We Can Learn From The Royal Wedding

I’ll be honest, I didn’t really care about the Royal Wedding prior to last Saturday. I didn’t plan on watching it — even though I was probably awake while it was happening (hello, wonky newborn sleep cycle).

The power of getting outside

Last year, after experiencing a number of big life transitions and on the heels of a move from San Diego, CA to Salt Lake City, UT, I felt unmoored. I felt like I had lost myself. I used to grab life by the horns. Jump in feet first. Say yes more than I said no. […]

We Belong Outside

There’s something magical about connecting to nature — breathing in the fresh air, listening to the wind rustle through the trees, feeling the blood pump through your legs as you hike, run, jump, soar.
