Finding MY Style Ft. Lisa

It took me a while to accept the way I am. I wanted to be Kendall Jenner. The lean, toned, long-legged and tall type… but naturally, I’m quite the opposite! Short (5’2″), short-legged, thick limbs, with a disproportionately large head. For me, this topic is closely tied to the idea of self-confidence and self-acceptance. I…

Finding Your Style

Finding your style. Finding something that’s “you”. To most of us, it’s a process and a challenge. Some people seem to have it naturally while others (if not all) need to experiment and go through the phases of trial and error.

What its like to go Plant-Based

Almost two months ago I decided to go plant-based. I wrote about this decision in another post. It has probably been the best and toughest decision of my life.

Love Thyself!

Change can’t occur unless you care and love yourself! Everyday I look in the mirror and I try my best to see the beauty inside of me. I try to be thankful for all the good I am, my two (mostly) working eye. My able body. My ears that hear the music I love. My…
