hey, hi, hello there.

if you don’t know me - i’m a brooklyn based/chicago (suburb) native/yoga teacher/fashion professional/world traveler/feminist/foodie/wino/francophile.  

following many, many years in the midwest, i later moved between denver, scottsdale and paris, finally finding a home in new york city in 2012. although my day job is in fashion, i needed a way to balance the crazy of work and this city. enter: yoga & all things fitness. i received my 200 hour yoga teacher certification in 2016 through Y7 studio, and have found the most incredible community in doing so. 

besides yoga, i am a huge fan of traveling the world, and i hope that some of my stories and adventures inspire you to do so as well. i also hope you enjoy my favorite places and things as much as i do. there is no shortage of great food, good wine and incredible people in nyc and around the world, and being able to share what i find along the way makes my heart happy. 

last but not least, this blog was started as a reaction to the 2016 presidential election - so, inevitably, there is a little bit of a political undertone in a few things here. i don't want to alienate anyone, but i want to share my feelings. if there's one thing i learned through it all, it's the power that comes with speaking your truth and being honest with yourself and what you're going through. you'd be amazed how many people are going through the same thing.

please, enjoy, and share with me your stories, adventures, favorite places and feelings as well.
