If you have the privilege (like me) to learn about racism instead of living it, now is the time (like any other) to act.
There’s no price tag on saving the earth. So why are we pretending there is? Join me on my no buy year and become a conscious consumer by doing nothing! #byebyebuy
Live your truth! But how? It’s no secret that social media is ‘just’ a highlight reel; making any #relatable post groundbreaking. However, living your truth goes beyond confessional Facebook-updates or unflattering Insta-selfies. Simply ask ‘why’ and get closer to your truth on and off screen!
Wisdom comes with the years, so why ditch it at the finish line? You don’t have to start from scratch or pick apart every bad habit just because you want to join a gym! Avoid ‘new year, new you’ nonsense and nurture the old you, the new you and every you in-between. Honestly, some wits wouldn’t hurt this time around…
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Which means shop till you drop and stuffing your face with whatever is offered. But, let’s be honest, is overindulgence really the way to go in 2019?

Don’t be discouraged and use these 3 tips so your holiday’s will be more #woke than nope!
I bought cute corduroy overalls from a fast fashion chain. I don’t regret my purchase; I mean, I’ve never looked this cute in my life. However, I do feel guilty about them. Why?

Why is it so bad to be bad at something? Sure, my existence is valued through the things I produce; but money isn’t everything, right? Right? By embracing our incompetences we can perhaps *finally* redefine what it means to be successful.
You’ve got to start somewhere. That’s the problem. Especially if you’re an overthinker, perfectionist or, have mercy, both. As someone with crippling FOSO (Fear Of Starting Out), I can’t seem to start (or finish) anything. Until now.
