I’ve been obsessed lately with The Skinny Confidential’s Him & Her Podcast and just finished their episode with Create & Cultivate’s Jaclyn Johnson. They spoke about collaboration over competition, which completely struck a chord with me. Continue reading
Minding My Mindfulness
I must confess: I am a laggard when it comes to most trends. Yoga, iPods, iPhones, skinny jeans, even Instagram! So when I started hearing all this hype about mindfulness and ‘living in the moment’, my initial thought was “give me a break”. Mindful eating? Meditation? Ugh. Continue reading
