Oprah Winfrey is my Auntie in my mind. SO of course I HAD to do a Happy Birthday post.
While I was searching for quotes to live by from the TV giant, I came across a video of Oprah giving her words of wisdom on aging. How appropriate is this message for me? At 34, I felt old and trapped inside my own life. It was moving at a snail’s pace, and I was bored beyond belief. So you beauties know my story–At 35, I quit my job and started a new life. Now at 36, I have NO regret on my decision.

Yep that basically sums up my 2012. But surprisingly even after the news of my mother’s new challenge, I am still so beyond joyous for this journey we call life.
So when I thought of what my 2013 resolutions should be, I realized I had already begun working on a lot of them. I just hadn’t wrote them down or even committed them to memory. So here’s go. Really for my own reminder of sorts, and perhaps for you as inspiration! Continue reading →
Last night, I hung out with my blogger boos for an intimate girls night out on Broadway sponsored by Have To Have.
Even though I’m no Broadway buff, I was kinda geeked about the experience. And if I should ever make my “NY Bucket List” (full of tourist-y things I wanna do in NYC) I can officially cross off going to a Broadway play. Continue reading →
