Playing Hooky For Health

So, I just played hooky. Yep, just like high school all over again! LOL! Just kidding. I actually took three days off from work to really check on myself. I mean, it’s so important to relax and rejuvenate every once in a while. It makes everything else in your life easier.   Plus, it’s nice …

Go With The Yoga Flow

  When I first moved to NYC, it was in the midst of a recession. Not the best timing, I know. So, to keep my stress level low I decided to join Yoga Works. Of course, being the Leo woman that I am, I figured I could skip a few levels and start at level …

My Babymoon For New Moms

You probably don’t even think about the fact that women in America work right up until their baby comes.  Take a moment to think about it though. How healthy is that for you and for your baby? Look, once that baby arrives, as a new mom, you will have zero time to yourself. So, it’s …

Giving Back Is Better Than Secret Santa!

I did things a little different this past holiday season. I was that girl who didn’t participate in Secret Santa with my co-workers. Yeah, I caught some shade but you know what? I don’t even care because I had a higher purpose. I saved up that extra money to give back in a big way! …
