-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.
^ Art installation by Benjamin Shine I had the most amazing time at MindBodyGreen’s Revitalize conference in Arizona! There is so much that happened that I can’t really put into words, but I’ll do my best attempt. First, I’d like to give a shoutout to the team at Kohl’s – Kohl’s so generously sponsored my trip and provided my workout wardrobe for the entire weekend. You can find my outfit details scattered throughout this post.
