5 Things I Learned From A Life Coach

5 Things I Learned From A Life Coach
I used to think a life coach was for people who had no direction on where to go. While that can hold true, it isn’t always the case.  I’ve been connecting with my Sophie (pictured above), who happens to be a life coach, a lot more lately and have been able to learn a lot […]

Afraid of Being Called An Entitled Millennial

Afraid of Being Called An Entitled Millennial
Entitled millennial. I’ve heard these two words put together so often that you would think they go hand in hand. I could go on whether or not millennials are truly entitled or not, but that’s a completely different topic. If you’d like some interesting articles about that, you can click here and here.  As you […]

7 Tips For Staying Focused With Work

7 Tips For Staying Focused With Work
Staying focused and prioritizing is something I get tons of questions about via Instagram. Funny enough, I’m writing this post with my brain all over the freaking place.

Being Angry With God

Being Angry With God
My relationship with God has always been…complicated.  I grew up in a strong Jewish household, but that doesn’t mean I sat back and never questioned my faith. Spiritual leaders actually say it’s a good thing when you question God. I don’t know, to be honest.  As I’ve gotten older, my faith has become stronger. I […]

My Experience With Human Kindness And Social Media

My Experience With Human Kindness And Social Media
You don’t always come across kindness on social media, but yesterday I got a huge lesson that it does exist. I was shooting content in Venice, CA and in the midst of the madness, my card holder fell out of my bag. Obviously, I had ZERO clue this happened. GO ME. I got home and […]
