Today I went to my SoulCycle "Outdoors" spin class here in NYC's Hudson Yards Plaza and the instructor leading the class said to everyone "2020 is over...it's DONE." I get why she said this. We all do, right? But as I was pedaling away I began to think about the last few months and how 'parts of 2020 weren't so bad'. Yes, 2020 (post-February and about a week or so into March) required lots of quarantining and social distancing, but it also required a lot of work to reach out and reconnect with friends and family.
I spent the most amazing long weekend at BREATHLESS PUNTA CANA RESORT & SPA in January of 2020, and took so many photos on the trip that it's taken me this long to narrow them down and share them here with you! Breathless Resorts are located in the most tropical locations in the world (look them up) but the one where I spent 4 incredible days is located in the popular travel destination of Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
These are my Ocean-safe Sunscreen Tips + info on the adidas Oceans Run in NYC.
Look at me! All decked out for summer fitness and spending oodles of time in the sun! The funny part about that last sentence is that I’m terrified of the sun even though I love how good it can feel on the skin. I leanred in my late 20’s and early 30’s that the sun can destroy your skin, and how easily one can contract skin cancer. So I don’t play that game anymore of going out in the sun without any sunscreen. Nope! The big news, when it comes to sunscreens, is that the FDA is reevaluating the safety of every single chemical sunscreen agent until November of 2019.
Already, many sunscreen brands and products using chemical ingredients have started to change their labels or discontinue certain lines. While many changes are still happening and we won’t get the FDA’s final results until November, what we do know is that MINERAL SUNSCREENS have been found to be the safest for both human...
Hiya! I'm thrilled to share that I'm hosting the 2018 New York Millennial Gala: A Rose Gold Affair, put on by Millennial Clubs. It's quite an honor because as the host, I will be guiding everyone through the night. Our attendees are top knotch! They are outstanding millennial professionals from all walks of life with stories that would truly impress you because THEY IMPRESS ME!
Millennial Clubs was co-founded by my friend Noble Madu who pioneering a social gathering and support group for hard working millennials who are sick of hearing the negative stereotypes of their age group. Not only is he smart, Noble's passion and charisma for bringing people together is quite infectious. He literally had me at "HELLO, this is what I'm doing..." and I was like "Sign me up, let's go!" All proceeds from the gala will be benefitting the Millennials for STEM Foundation, which is a great cause to help the financially or medically strained to enter into the fields of Science, Technology,...
I attended Wanderlust 108 in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park with Swisse Wellness to check out their charming installation called Destination Happiness. If you’ve never heard of Swisse before, they are a premium vitamin and supplement brand founded in Melbourne, Australia that has quickly launched across the globe.
Their entire philosophy centers around “health & happiness”, which the company shortens to call H&H in terms of everything they do. So it only makes sense that their village at Wanderlust 108 was called Destination Happiness. Here are a couple of shots of me hanging out with Swisse very early in the morning before all the Wanderlust Festival activities were in full swing.
You can’t see it in this picture, but to my right there was a braiding station and then to my left there was a massage booth. Both of these were awesome perks for Wanderlust 108 attendees who planned to run and do yoga during the festival.
