Hi guys. This blog post is a personal one where I'm just going to open up about what I like to call my "fertility experiment". I know tons of women are going through what I recently experienced or maybe they're just beginning to think about it. Either way, I hope my story in some small way helps.
Let me start by saying that I never thought I'd be the girl (or rather woman) who would have to freeze her eggs. When I was younger, I always envisioned myself married with kids by my age (I won't divulge the number...sorry...but I am sure you can Google it). As I got into my 30's, my career became so freakin' important to me. I made it a priority. I promised myself I would succeed in what I loved to do before I'd even consider having a family.
Well, that time has finally arrived for me. I'm now at a place where I feel comfortable in my career and need to start evaluating what I want to do about having kids. I won't lie. I'm still very confused. If you read my 2018 New Year's...
I made this investigative health video because I noticed I was losing a lot more hair than normal in the shower. It scared me. No one likes the thought of losing their hair! I began to research the topic primarily to see what I could do to better nourish my hair and maintain the strands that weren't abandoning me. In the process of doing my research, I realized this was something I had to share with you.

Female hair loss is a big problem. There are several kinds as you will find out from watching my video. No matter what the reason for the loss is, the effect on the individual is always the same. She is emotionally distressed and her self-image dramatically suffers.
I have dedicated myself to lifting women up and connecting them to solutions, but I have to be honest, I never expected to make this video. When I first heard about the PRP treatment and...
I get the worst periods. We all do. It can be hell on earth some months, right? Especially when it hurts to move. But it’s actually common knowledge in the women's health world that if you maintain physical activity while you’re menstruating that you can actually alleviate cramps, bloating, aches and pains.
It all comes down to circulation, breathing fresh oxygenated air, drinking lots of water and getting your endorphins going. I like to equate it to working out while you’re going through heartbreak. At the beginning, you’re like “how could this possibly make my situation any better?” But once those beads of sweat start forming and you’re releasing toxins and somewhat forgetting about HIM (or her), exercise feels like the best idea you ever came up with!
Scorned lovers and periods need to be dealt with in the same way, because ultimately the pain will pass. You just have to get in motion to speed up the process! Pushing through your period is possible when...
It's January 30th and I've had a lot of time to think about my top 10 New Year's resolutions. I have a tradition of writing them down, framing the list and mounting it on a wall where I can see it every day. This tactic has definitely worked in the past but I'm over it. I can focus on my goals without the guilt trip. As you get older, there are less distractions in life that matter. Goals are easier to see. Agree or not?
My ten 2018 resolutions that follow come from the heart and from my ambitious desires to be my best, most successful self. I decided to do a countdown since #1 is definitely the most important and, of course, I want you to read the whole blog post. Sorry, is that mean?
Another thing... I work fast. Within the month of January, I completed some of these resolutions already. That's what the ✅ stands for.
#10. Meet Jane Fonda.
It's my dream to meet Jane Fonda. She's my QUEEN. She's beautiful, smart, unapologetic and has used her influence throughout...
So I've been waiting to share this news on my blog! I had the incredible opportunity to work with Walgreens on this wonderful New Year health campaign that you might see as commercials and digital ads online. Let me know if you catch me squacking away at you. Send me a screen grab or reach out to tell me what you think!
I'm really honored to have worked on this campaign because I literally grew up on Walgreens! In Missouri, it was our main pharmacy and quick-shop that was on every corner and STILL IS! When I moved to New York, there were so many other phamarcies up here but I made sure to exclusively shop at Walgreens because it reminded me of home. Your roots are your roots, right?
Have you tried any of Walgreen's NICE products? We featured a lot of them in this campaign and I was lucky enough to bring a bunch home after the shoot! Wondering if you have any favorites.
Did you know people across the world make the same New Year's Resolutions year after year? I did a little research and these are a few of the MOST POPULAR resolutions made according to data pulled by Google and Nielson.
Get healthy and lose weight.
Hit the gym more often.
Live life to the fullest and travel more.
So I decided to get a little creative with my tips for helping you conquer your resolutions this year, and put together some tools that check each box. Happy watching! You can also view the segment HERE!
