Run Your (Spiritual) Race

Earlier this year I ran my second marathon. If you are wondering how far that is, just picture yourself taking the scenic route from Coral Gables to Homestead. It is a little over 26 miles. This wonderful adventure I signed up for took place in Walt Disney World, where every mile is promised to be… Continue reading Run Your (Spiritual) Race

Nashville Guide from a Miami Girl

Nashville has become my favorite city away from home. The music, the people, and especially the FOOD all add to the atmosphere. I first found myself in the Music City on a work trip in 2011, and have been fortunate to watch it transform through the seasons ever since. While work hours in Nashville limit… Continue reading Nashville Guide from a Miami Girl

Just the Beginning

How many times have you wrestled with your purpose? Sometimes I wonder if we spend more time questioning our purpose, rather than taking action. Am I alone here? Every now and then I start to doubt where I’m at in life. This year I am turning 30 at the end of December, and boy have… Continue reading Just the Beginning

Top Chill Spots in Miami Design District

When you have lived in Miami long enough, you discover more than beaches and nightclubs. There are chill neighborhoods that make this city great to be part of like the Miami Design District.

Sunday at the Drybar

A couple weeks ago I returned to the Drybar at Brickell City Centre for some much needed self-care. After a Sunday of rest, it was like the icing on top. I joined a group of fashion babes in Miami, hosted by Stephanie from Mota Parla. We each grabbed a glass of mimosa and flipped through… Continue reading Sunday at the Drybar

Was it Worth It?

A moment on the lips is a lifetime on the hips. We’ve heard the phrase before. Especially when our gym partner slaps a donut from our hand. I’m not here to talk about diets, though. What I am more interested in is if we consider this reality in our daily lives.   The Python Was… Continue reading Was it Worth It?

I Was Hungry, And You Fed Me

Wherever you find yourself reading this—maybe you are holding a hot dog under the fireworks—I wonder if you worry about your next meal. Not just a food picture worthy of the gram… I am asking if you ever wonder what you would do if you had to beg for food? The Encounter This Sunday I… Continue reading I Was Hungry, And You Fed Me

When an Organized Space Clears the Mind

Growing up my cousins would pick on me by rearranging things in my room. Let me explain. I used to keep my collection of Precious Moments in my room on the dresser, nightstands, and on shelves. They were all arranged in a particular way, and so, my cousins—knowing how much it bothered me—would come into… Continue reading When an Organized Space Clears the Mind

Do You Really YOLO?

The motto is so real, but is it so worth it? Yes, we only live once. But YOLO can mean one of two things: you only live once, so do something you have never done before (that might be idiotic or embarrassing); or it can mean you only live once, so make mindful choices that… Continue reading Do You Really YOLO?

Don’t Stop Buying Avocados, but…

In case you hadn’t checked, today is National Lucky Penny Day. And sure, maybe you forgot because after all, what can a penny get you nowadays anyway? It barely gets you luck, and it surely won’t quickly add up to you buying your first house. But, it does make me think about money and what… Continue reading Don’t Stop Buying Avocados, but…
