Yoga helped me fall madly and deeply in love—with myself.

Prior to my Yoga journey, I had no concept of what self-love was all about. My relationship with myself was a harsh one, always pushing for more success, criticizing any and all mistakes, and killing myself over...

What did you want to be when you grew up? Personally, I had dreams of being a monkey trainer and a racecar driver. Yes, not your usual childhood fantasy, but what can I say? I was a dreamer from the start.

Being a dreamer in today’s world can be a harsh let-down into re...

Social Media. Love it or hate it, it has permeated our lives. Check Facebook to see how the family is doing, check Instagram to see where friends are traveling to, check Snapchat to catch up with your long-distance bff. Social media is a great tool for connection and s...

The holidays were a whirlwind of excitement, confusion, and change.

I can write a whole novel abo...

It's t-minus three weeks until I'll be home for the Christmas holidays! But until then, I'll be reminiscing on the following:

In-N-Out Burger

If you know me, I've always prided myself on being a strong independent woman. 

I like knowing that I can handle any situation or obstacle thrown at me. And living on my own in a new country has definitely proven that to be true. 

So far, I've lived in the south of Franc...

I successfully arrived in my little town of Pau in the south of France last Thursday after approximately 24 hours of traveling. And I've learned a lot since then.
