How To Make Almond Milk

How To Make Almond Milk Since the holidays I kind of turned into a blob of mashed potatoes. I wasn’t doing yoga as much and I definitely wasn’t eating as healthy as I should have. I needed a reset, mentally and physically, so I went to Barbados for two weeks. It was (as it always is) incredible. I was eating healthier, going to the gym again, relaxing at the beach, and spending time my family and best friends. Overall it was a detox from my typical life back home full of adult responsibilities. When I got back I wanted to continue […]

Mirror Mirror on the Wall…

There’s nothing I dislike more than a liar. If you’re going to lie, don’t make it a lie that someone can instantly prove is a lie. I’m not saying that lies are okay if you’re not going to be caught, but I’m saying why would you do it in the first place if it’s weak? White lies about your friend gaining weight or if their baby is cute are fine. Saying I have purple hair, or that I’m a lawyer when I clearly don’t and am not, are not okay. Anyway, you’re probably wondering where I’m going with this and […]

Voice Message Mishap - A Story of My UnBRIElievable Life

2017 is already proving to just as or more unBRIElievable than 2016! About a month ago, my friend Brittany and I went to A-Town to watch our alma mater, JMU, play in the semifinals for the FCS National Championship. This is where I met Adam Stanton*. We exchanged numbers, texted a bit afterwards and seemed to be getting along. Or so I thought…but then he kept “forgetting” to text me back… well, I’m not stupid I could tell he wasn’t interested anymore. Since JMU won the semifinals A-Town was having another watch party for the championship game against Youngstown State and […]

Crossed Lines

Modern day version of crossed lines

Do you remember when people used telephones that connected to a wall? Well I do. Sometimes you’d be talking to your friend when all of a sudden a third random voice would also be talking because the lines got crossed! That problem seemed to be a thing of the past, or so I thought. The other night I was trying to FaceTime my friend Kirk. We went to school together in Barbados and he now lives in Canada. I FaceTimed him and he picked up only to tell me he was at the airport but he would call me back […]

PSA: Sea Turtles Are Dying.

There are some things that happen in this world that make me sick to my stomach and the abuse of animals is high on my list. I wrote about this topic a while ago but didn’t post it because I thought it was too formal for my blog. Now I don’t care, I just want to spread awareness and hope I can make even a small difference in this issue. Sea turtles are dying and we need to do something about it. A picture that recently went viral of two guys “surfing” on a sea turtle in Australia also compelled […]

My Indiana Adventure

The Airport Well, as expected, my trip to Indiana was definitely worthy of writing about. My life is always one ridiculous event after the other. I decided to go up for the weekend to see Hannah, one of my best friends and business partners in It Works!, and her daughter for her first birthday party. Things started to get crazy before I even got to the airport. It’s about 20 minutes away from my house so my mom picked me up at 6:20 A.M. to drive me there. I checked in online the night before so I only had to make it through […]

The Day I Went to Prison – Part 3

A story about prison

“What ways?” I wondered out loud. “Well, there are blind spots on the cameras. Like over there under that camera by the microwave,” Ben replied as he pointed to a security camera. “So people just do it really fast out here in the open, by a microwave?!” I could not grasp this concept. “People usually make sure there aren’t any kids around,” he stated. “Phew, well at LEAST there aren’t kids around,” I thought. “How do the guards not notice?” I asked skeptically. This was just absurd and I needed to know the details. Ben started to explain some more, […]

Hair’s The Thing About Donating

Hair Donation

I think I was about 7 years old when I donated my hair for the first time. I remember our friend and hair stylist, Chris, telling me about Locks of Love and wanting to help out other kids. So I did it, I chopped off my long, dirty blonde locks and ended up with a bob just below my earlobes. Here’s a picture of me about 7-8 months after I cut and donated my hair for the first time! Since then I’ve donated my hair 5 more times! That’s about once every three years. Now this post isn’t to brag […]
