One Year In

I’m one year in with my airline, and I cannot believe it! To add a cheesy pun, it has literally flown by. From all over the USA to many parts of Europe, this year has changed me in unexpected ways. It has calmed me down and quenched an undeniable thirst for exploration. But most importantly, it has…

When Tragedy Happens at 30,000 ft

This post is not in my usual happy and feel-good tone that I prefer to write and live within. This post is what many of us in the aviation industry fear the most: something happens to our loved ones while we are 30,000 feet and beyond, unable to be reached until we land. I learned…

The Power of Owning Your Story

All of us have a unique story that has shaped who we are. Most of us, if not all, have been through something that caused a great shift in our lives. It stopped us in our tracks, then propelled us forward. It caused us to think hard about the direction we were going, and grateful…

Balancing Your Day Job with Your Dream Life

I have a wonderful girlfriend that puts programs together for busy business professionals that also have what she affectionately calls a “side hustle.” I met her while I worked as a content marketing specialist at a tech company in Dallas. We bonded over our mutual love of side hustling and how badly we both wanted…

How to Heal From a Loss

I was apprehensive about starting 2015… It’s been a decade since I graduated high school, which seems to weigh heavily on most people, I think. It’s often symbolized as a marker of growth and achievement as we get ready to showcase what we’ve been up to after all this time (if we attend). It’s also…

Hello Lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Holiday Weekend! I had LASIK surgery last Thursday and was out pretty much until Friday afternoon, when my husband decided it was time for an adventure! We never like to stay in one place for too long… So off to Austin we went, for a…

Acne and Face Mapping

It happened last year, almost immediately after my 27th birthday… ACNE. I was confused, self-conscious and very stressed about it. I wouldn’t consider myself a vain person by any means. I have no qualms about rolling out of bed and heading straight to Whole Foods in my yoga pants and workout t-shirt with no makeup…
