Last week I turned 28-years-old!!!
It was an epic week of the unexpected. After spending a few days in NYC to check on my apartment before heading back to #lala land (AKA Los Angeles), I was a few days away from turning 28 (Sunday, March 16) when two buildings in my New York neighborhood literally imploded because of a gas pipe leak.
People died. The streets were shut down. There was dust in the air .. for days.
I headed back to Los Angeles with a heavy heart, almost missing my flight. I wanted to stay in NY. I wanted to be a part of my neighborhood as it grieved and got itself back on its feet. I wanted to help celebrate life and also honor lives lost.
But I got back on the plane, and I headed west. And as I headed west, I decided to make a decision to stop doing something I didn’t want to be doing.

Symbolically, an owl represents wisdom. Owl necklaces became popular in the 1970s and the trend was called “Hoot Couture.” Because the ’70s was a time of political, moral and ethical exploration in the United States, the value of wisdom became embedded in the nation’s consciousness. The features of an owl appear more human like too, as if you’re staring into the eyes of your reflection in the mirror. Which is why when choosing an owl necklace, you get to choose a necklace that mimics your inner being or sense of self you’d like to fulfill.

Meditating in Central Park last summer, as seen on my Instagram feed I discovered the power of strength in stillness a little over two years ago. On the outside I seemed fine – a happy, smiling, loving girl full of opportunity and excitement – but on the inside I was a ticking time bomb, ready […]

In life we are never “fully developed.” We are who we are for a reason so divine that we need not seek to understand it. But life throws curveballs and our minds become wrapped in the “who, what, where, when, why” behind it all. And so we can turn to leaders who have left legacies of words which assure, affirm and acknowledge our beautiful, perfect and complete selves. Today I’m sharing my passion for reading books in the self-development sphere. My collection “Inspired Words to Live By” on eBay highlights 14 books written by my favorite leaders in the “self-help” field of New Age spiritual enlightenment.

While beauty is always in the eye of the beholder, I believe that “ugly” is actually in the mind of its maker as well: As in, what may seem ugly to you is actually really kick-butt-awesome to me. Just sayin’. That’s why when after coming across not one, or two, or three but 15 (and counting!) cute, conversational Christmas sweaters I decided to curate them into an equally as tongue-in-cheek collection on eBay called Ugly Holiday Sweaters That Are Kind of Cool (Kind Of).
