Just in the past two months I’ve traveled to Arizona, Florida, Texas, Kentucky, and now I’m off to LA and then back home to Kentucky again for the holidays. Side note: I should reeeally figure out how frequent flyer miles work, haha. Since travel is becoming such an integral part of my job, I’ve learned to find sustainable ways to adapt my healthy lifestyle while on the road. That way my body won’t crash and burn every time I’m on an airplane (figuratively speaking, let’s hope).
Hello, easy raw vegan cheesecake – This is the tastiest and dreamiest ‘cheesecake’ that also happens to be gluten, corn, and soy free. Even if you don’t have any dietary restrictions, this recipe is the bomb. It’s super easy to make, and it’s something fun and different to bring to family gatherings. Gotta keep ’em on their toes, you know.
-MEET THE FOUNDER OF MINKA BROOKLYN- I had the honor of meeting Aki, founder of MINKA Brooklyn, about a year ago. Since connecting with her, she has inspired me probably more than she knows. From being a badass mama to three beautiful children to using her spiritual gifts to help others feel more connected and to dig deeper, she’s one gem of a human. Read more about Aki and her journey through spirituality, entrepreneurship, and navigating the balance between business and motherhood.
Since January, I’ve found myself slowly, but surely transitioning into a minimalist. Now more than ever I realize that less truly, truly is more, and it makes me a much happier human. Having less gives me more space to breath, think, move, create, and best of all, connect with what I already have and truly value it.
Each day is a fresh, new start, and we decide how we’re going to make the most of it. I’m such a firm believer in mindful morning routines – it’s what gets me centered, focus, and excited for the day ahead. I’ve spoken a lot about mindful mornings on Instagram and a few times on Insta-Story Takeovers, but I wanted to dig a little deeper on the blog to show you what a ‘mindful morning’ looks like for me.
Been waiting 26 years to turn 26 on September 26th! WOO, I MADE IT. Also, ironically enough as I’m writing this (technically wrote this yesterday), it is 8:26am and I currently have 26 unread emails. Coincidence? Haha… I don’t know what to say, except that I feel incredibly grateful. It has proven time and time again that everything in my life happened for a reason and has led me to this present moment. So, I want to walk you through a pretty personal timeline that really shows how much of my path was a result of two significant beings in my life: Andrew + my blog, Om & The City.
