“My perspective. You may not agree…and that’s ok.”

I lead a highly social life via what I want everyone to see. On social media, my life looks like perfection to most. I post about attending all these sporting events and getting to travel the country and the world. I get paid to model bathing suits, clothing and use fitness apparel, but what appears on the surface can sometimes be fleeting and misleading. I’ve been wanting to write this article for a while but it just never fe...

I personally hate New Year’s resolutions. I don’t really believe in them. Resolutions are an overated grand plan for that year that almost always sets you up for failure and disappointment. So why would you do that to yourself?? I might as well also swim through alligator infested waters and hope to make it through while losing only minimal body parts.

I mean, let’s be realistic. If I start the year by saying that I am cutting...

It’s funny. I am 33.I’m well-traveled. I am well educated. I hold my own on many levels. My blog is hitting a successful drive and the future looks bright in me continuing to pursue my dreams. I should be happy right? And I am, I promise. However, in April, as I sat in an empty hotel room enjoying a piece of success while hosting an event for Gaiam and Lord & Taylor…I was suddenly lonely for the first time.

I have always been a...

They say life is short and to chase your dreams. You just never know when it might be too late.

We all might think that we are living while keeping all of that in mind but are we really?? Do we live on the edge of fearful OR fearless? Which is even the better option?

Fearlessness can be scary. It is great in the sense that you are bold and never wavering but that also can put you on a path of just plain stupidity. To be driven b...

Not all of us are so lucky as to have parents by our side throughout our lives. Some of us have a deadbeat parent, some have tragically lost one, some were abandoned, some of us have chosen for one reason or another not to be in our parent’s life. I am reminded daily by people of a variety of backgrounds and social acquaintance just how lucky I am. I may not have come from the quote unquote “ideally perfect” home, but I am not...

Om. Yogi. Acro yoga. Savasana. Namaste.

All of these are terms that I never use in my daily fitness life. However, after attending the Gaiam & Lord and Taylor Health & Wellness event in NYC, I might! I have always admired and respected the art of yoga and I have dabbled in a few classes of vinyasa here and there but I had never considered making it a regular part of my routine until I was social media host for the event! I met...

I am just not that girl. Never have been.

You might be wondering, who is that girl? I don’t even know that I understand who she fully is myself but for some reason I have always longed to be her.

I guess in my mind, she is the girl that things happen for. She walks in a room and everyone wants to know her. She smiles and the world crumbles at her feet. She is the girl that men bend over backwards to put true effort into wanting...

With the first month of the new year almost behind us (scary…only 11 more months until Christmas lol), I took some time off to clear my brain and reflect on 2016. Where my mind drifted to, was a random assortment of things and people I am truly grateful for. I get a lot of requests for me to share a bit more about me so this is my first attempt on the year.

Top 8 Things I Am Appreciative For:

  1. My mom- I wouldn’t be the person...

Sometimes in life, people are just not going to like you.

We all grow up being taught that we should aim to please everyone, treat others with respect and how we would like to be treated; but what do you do when your realize that some people can’t be pleased? I feel like my answer to this was much different before I turned 31 (yes I mean 31 and not 30…it took a whole year to really set in lol). When I was in my 20's, I used to...

Some people are born with a name that just sounds like greatness. Whitney Mercilus is one of those. With the last name of Mercilus, how could he not play a professional sport? Considering in football, the defensive line should never show an ounce of “Merci,” I think the NFL has been calling his name since childhood. So besides his name, what makes Whitney stand out to the community among so many other athletes? The answer is s...
