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 …

Women’s History Month!

In case you didn’t know, March is Women’s History Month and Friday, March 8 is Women’s Day. If nothing else, use this time to reflect on the women in your life and how much of an impression they’ve made on you!   When I was a little girl, I remember walking to school and women …

There is no Traffic in Your Lane!

Recently, I was listening to a podcast by Imani Cohen (A.K.A. @TheHoodHealer), a popular healer on Instagram. I loved what she said about pursuing your dreams.

January Blues

With every New Year’s Eve comes a whole new list of personal goals. But with that list also comes a whole bunch of new anxieties and disappointments. My January kicked off with a bang! Things were falling into place left and right. Even goals that I forgot about were falling into formation. Listen, I was …

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! …

End of Year Reflections

It’s almost the end of the year so, like a lot of you, I’ve been reflecting on 2018– the highs, the lows and everything in between. If you’ve been following me, you already know that 2018 was, uhm, an INTERESTING year for me. LOL! I got divorced, started a new career, moved, and started a …

My First Birth!

I’ve been pretty emotional for the last few days because my first birth is away month. Uhm, no, I’m not pregnant. LOL! I mean, my first birth as a doula!   I’ve known my first doula client for almost 10 years. We met back when we were both working in the retail industry. She has …
