Confession: I’ve been battling an un-diagnosed sugar addiction since I can remember—in other words, I have an insanely huge (and slightly debilitating) sweet tooth. Sugary sweets are my vice. While others are at work daydreaming about vacations, past lovers, future lovers, and taking money baths—you can find me at my desk daydreaming about stuffing my face [...]

I am beginning to believe the phrase “simplicity is key” applies to everything. I’ve always liked being aware of what I put in my body, and only recently have I started to care about what I’m putting on it. For a long time, I felt skincare was synonymous with fighting zits.

Breathing is underrated. Not all of us have the same privileges, luxuries, employee benefits or PTO – but most of us have the ability to take 10 minutes a day to tune everything out and just…breathe. In the last few decades in which meditation has grown into the mainstream, various studies have offered insight into its [...]

To be completely honest, my most recent fitness journey began well over a few months ago, but I didn’t see significant results until a few months in. I didn’t start losing weight until I buckled down and became realistic – mostly about what I was eating. In a two to three-month time frame, I lost [...]

Raise your hand if you didn’t reach all your 2018 goals... If your hand is raised, you’re not alone. There’s more than one goal I didn’t come close to reaching this year, but I did reach a few super important ones. And at this point, that’s all that matters to me. If I had to [...]

With another transformative year around the sun and feeling my twenty-eighth birthday around the corner, I would’ve never imagined that my mind would be consumed with such reflective scrutiny.   “I’m not enjoying my days.

Why do People Love Sex, but are so Uncomfortable Talking about it?
1904, 2017

By | April 19th, 2017|Sex|2 Comments

As I introduce the topic of things like quickies, one-night stands, orgasms, pleasure and consent, I need to address that the majority of us are uncomfortable having conversations about something that is practiced by almost every adult (and many non-adults) in America. What I’m talking about is one of our most beloved activities: Sex. According [...]

Coming out of the tunnel and seeing the sun creep in through the scuffed windows made me take a second to look away from page 104 of Shonda Rhimes’ “Year of Yes.” I couldn’t stop curiously staring out the window as I sat on this crowded B train passing over Manhattan Bridge, overlooking the East [...]

I squeezed onto the jam-packed overnight train to Southern Thailand with some other backpackers I met a few days before.
