I Was At Grumpy Cat's Birthday!

#FortunaForAll #CollectiveBias #Cbias

Yes, I was at Grumpy Cat's birthday party. I know, I'm way more of a dog person BUT Grumpy Cat is 1) pretty darn cute and 2) really famous. So how could I turn down the opportunity to chill with her as she rings in her 6th?

The party was a delight. We basically surrounded Grumpy, lovingly stared at her, took lots of pics and then ate all her cake. It was a lot of fun and I had my fortune told by a psychic who told me to be careful because I was likely to get pregnant. Hmmm, still no baby yet!

Grumpy is a curmudgeon down to the bone. Btw, her real name is Tardar Sauce. Grumpy Cat is just her stage name. You won't get a smile out of her no matter how hard you try. I mean...she didn't even blow out the candles on her cake and refused to have a slice. At one point, she closed her eyes to spare herself from the sight of all of us.

As a dog person, I pretty much expect all cats to act this way. They're just too good to...

Female Hair Loss | PRP to the Rescue!

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...

How To Treat Pregnancy Pain

I've never been pregnant but these ladies are! Meet my 2 friends: Kristin McGee and Nadia Murdock. They're both fitness experts, like me! But they've got a leg up (or maybe a belly up?) on me when it comes to the baby game as they're both very close to their due dates. Watch the video above. Give the image of Kristin & Nadia a click! Watch it HERE too! In my interview with Kristin and Nadia, I ask how they're able to maintain their fitness routines. Honestly, it seems hard to me (even as a fitness fanatic). I imagine myself wanting to veg out in front of the TV all day. The idea of carrying around all that weight in your tummy seems like a workout in and of itself. Kristin and Nadia go on to share that there's lots of sensitivity affecting your growing belly and other parts of your body, too. Kristin and Nadia use Topricin pain relief creams. It's came as no surprise to me as Topricin is a health industry favorite for its all-natural, non-irritating products. I...

Tech Boom in Fitness, Fashion & Health

Tech is a hot topic in fitness, fashion and health more than ever these days. It's drastically changing these industries with more advanced fabrics, lighter and more funtional parts, more accurate tracking and motion sensors, and overall cooler customization. It's really amazing to see all the companies being born out of these kind of technological advancements. Technology spells OPPORTUNITY! I've been covering technology in fitness, fashion and health over the last 5 months and I really hope you enjoy these trend reports. The reason I find them so relevant is because by 2020, wearable technology alone with generate over 20 billion dollars in revenue. And I'm not talkin' pedometers! The category continues to evolve and expand beyond the fitness tracker we're all familiar with. It's a new tech-y world out there. Enjoy these recaps and please let me know what you think! This piece is from TechstyleNYC 2016 which just took place during New York Fashion Week on February 16th,...

The Habits of Go-Getters

I recently participated in a wonderful interview series that's making its debut right now. It's called The Habits of Go-Getters interview summit. A really astounding young lady and go-getter herself, Katya Meyers, created the interview series to share what happens behind the scenes in the lives of successful health & wellness oriented professionals. I'm honored to be a part of her series and my interview is LIVE and ready to be heard by clicking RIGHT HERE. You'll receive a recording link once you're all signed up. And yes, it's FREE! Before you give a listen though, I want to share my thoughts on what Katya Meyers is doing. When Katya first reached out to me and shared a bit of her life with me, I was really impressed with her background and how she left a traditional career path to pursue an endeavor her heart was stuck on (racing). But most of all, I was struck by how Katya took the time to create her Go-Getter Series and visualized something extremely collaborative that...

Latham Thomas on Women Who Empower

I was lucky enough to interview Latham Thomas for my Women Who Empower series on YouTube. She inspires women through her business Mama Glow, her "hip guide" on prenatal wellness, her beautiful affirmations on social media and through all her doula work. She's been known to work with many celebrities like Alicia Keys. Latham also helps women get fit during and post-pregnancy. When I first approached Latham about filming together, I asked her if she'd comment on the events that went down in Ferguson, Missouri, which is not far from where I grew up in St. Louis. She was all IN. The conversation we had below was months before there was a final decision for NO INDICTMENT in the case against Darren Wilson. Click HERE or on the image below to watch. Everything Latham says comes from such a calm and honest place. Find out what the life of a Prenatal Wellness Expert is all about, especially if you're interested in becoming a doula or hiring one to assist you through your...
