My Six Favorite Workouts in the City

We have a established that I am definitely basic. But I don’t see it as a negative, it’s actually a part of my charm. One of my most basic qualities is that yes, I enjoy a solid, overpriced workout. Yes I love to run and have my sister train me, but what really gets me to commit is spending money on a workout knowing that if I cancel, I’m going to lose like $30, so I better get my ass…

Fast Five: Life Lessons from Mama

Today is International Women’s Day. Toward the end of last year, with all we learned about Harvey Weinstein and the #metoo, #timesup movements, I really made a choice to educate and immerse myself in understanding more about women’s right and feminism. Leave it to me to have celebrity gossip drive my educational path. I am lucky that my cousin, Temma, is well versed in women’s right and women’s studies and she has sort of taken me under her wing to…

The Bachelor Arie: Finale Feels

*JUST FYI THERE ARE SPOILERS AHEAD* OK I just want to preface this by saying that I am seriously pissed about this finale and there will be A LOT of cap-locks in today’s post. Not because I’m surprised AT ALL by what this show does or the decisions it makes in the name of juicy drama but OMFG. Like drag Becca through the mud why don’t you? We aren’t even done with this season (YES there are still TWO HOURS tonight)…

Habit 7: Sharpen The Saw

I had a great conversation this morning about forming habits and how Habits are actually a stronger motivator in business than any other incentive. And after debating the pros and cons, I had to agree – strong habits are the key to a successful self-starter – like consistency is key here people. We’ve all heard this and it got me thinking about one of the first books Daddy Niko gave me as a child (yes, we can dive into that therapy session…

Greek Lemon Soup (Vegetarian + Chicken)

The weekend is here and I’m back in the city and colder than ever. Seriously, my knees are in pain because they’re not used to the cold! So instead of complaining about it, I am choosing to embrace it with a little love from the kitchen. I made this Greek Lemon Soup before I went to LA and it was a hit on my Stories. Why such a hit?! Well it was pretty delicious and looks gourmet but it also can…

10 Brilliantly Bad Movies to Watch on Netflix

Ok, since I couldn’t watch The Bachelor Women Tell All on Sunday OR Monday, I am trying to divert your attention away from discussing it. So today’s TV Tuesday isn’t going to be about TV at all. We are talking my favorite pasttime: Netflix and Chill Baby! Obviously I’m not referring to it the way the kids do these days but still, sometimes there is nothing better than a quality Netflix and Chill session complete with snacks, sweatpants and all the…

The Reassess

I just Googled the definition of ‘Reassess’ and it said this, “consider or assess again, especially while paying attention to new or different factors.” Ok, got it. The past six months, this word is all that has been coming to my mind. REASSESS. I am not sure why I had such reservations about acknowledging it. But the past few weeks spent away and in reading that definition, having it right in my face, I realize that what I wasn’t paying…

Fast Five: How to Win Sponsored Partnerships

This post has been sitting in my drafts for a while mostly because I wasn’t sure if it warranted more than just five tips. It is by far the question I get asked about the most: “How do I get sponsorships?” And while I wish there was some magic, simple way to achieve this, I’m here to tell you there isn’t. Sponsored partnerships really come down to the work. Taking time to develop a mutually beneficial idea, then creating kick-ass content,…

The Bachelor – Arie Episode 8 Recap

I don’t even know where to begin with this show anymore. With every week that goes by I feel Arie growing tired of pretending to feign interest in any of the remaining four ladies. Can we all agree that he just does not give a sh-t anymore? It’s kind of a big massive joke but whatever let’s dive in to this week’s ladies and dates. We are in hometowns so why waste any time and instead let’s just take Arie…
