Shame Resilience: A Vulnerability Hangover Cure

“I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages (because how reckless can a form of digitized communication be?) and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying, “Kiss me harder,” and “You’re a good person,” and, “You brighten my day.” 

Four Life Lessons I Learned While Backpacking

Backpacking Feature image by Daniela Leon

The truth about backpacking is: it can be intimidating. With all your possessions lying on your shoulders, and your resting place being anything from a hostel mattress to a bus seat, it’s a mystery why people choose to grab their essentials and head for the unknown. It was not until I took the leap of faith through South America that I realized how jam-packed it is with life-lessons that can be applied every single day. Here are a few things I learned on my journey:

An Open Letter From a Wife Who Married Young-Ish

Twenty-four is an interesting age. Depending on the age of whom you ask, 24 year-olds are either just starting to get their lives together, or just starting to figure out all they lack. Truthfully, that could be said for any 20-something age, but I think twenty-four in particular holds a certain sophomoric gumption that slowly wanes as one approaches 30.

Idols of the Tribe

Idols of the Tribe Feature image

How we choose to identify ourselves often categorizes us. In many first world cultures, especially in the U.S., we do not stay in the environment we were raised in. We often find ourselves alone, searching for an identity separate from our immediate family. Hairstyles, clothing, ideals, and the like, are all aspects of society that we willingly expose ourselves to in order to connect with similar people. No matter the race, religion, gender, or socioeconomic status, those people are part of your tribe. Idols of the Tribe is an exploration of identity. Though this is planned as an ongoing project, these images represent two black Americans and their search for “tribe.”   Editorial Credits  Photography: Cooper Penn // IG:@cooperslight Hair: Iman Atiba // IG:@honeidoostylist Makeup: Ashley Gray…

The Beauty Breakdown: How to be Beautiful

beauty breakdown

We know the question; but do we have the answer? What is beauty and what does it mean to be a truly beautiful woman? Who decides what is aesthetically pleasing? Aside from the media’s attempt to fill in the blanks and the cultural stereotypes surrounding us, what does ‘being beautiful’ look like to you? Is it purely physical? Can it be emotional, even spiritual? Could beauty be what touches the soul or perhaps what stirs the heart? Or is it merely what catches the eye?

An Inside Look at Wanderlust Festivals

Wanderlust feature image

Standing among the lively crowd, the vibrations of drums, bass and saxophone connects the hundreds of fans gathered together to watch one performer. The melody travels through the crowd’s bodies as they stand side by side absorbing the invigorating energy. Just as music’s energy connects concert attendees, a universal force unites participants in a yoga class. Both the rhythm of breath in a yoga class and the beat of music at a concert have the power to join people together in harmony. Sean Hoess, Jeff Krasno and Schuyler Grant recognized these similarities and, as a result, created Wanderlust Festival in 2009.

While there is contrast in our contentful countenances, our humanistic bond strengthens when we put into practice the following ways that have been scientifically proven to increase a positive life. Let’s be partakers in the experiment, shall we?

White and Bright: DIY Toothpaste, Mouthwash and Whiteners

There has been much controversy over the use of fluoride since its introduction over 40 years ago. Our U.S. government recently admitted that they have been overdosing us with fluoride in our water supply – whether we like it our not. Although the government made claims that fluoride helped to fight tooth decay, the FDA had actually never fully supported those claims. It has now been proven that fluoride overdose leads to “dental fluorosis” which is a chalky build up on your teeth, as well as other side effects including gastric pain, nausea, vomiting, and headaches. Many of today’s name brands that are ADA-Accepted contain fluoride and sodium lauryl sulfate. Yikes! But don’t fear! You can actually create your own chemical free toothpaste at home…

Distracted Living: 5 Ways to Unplug and Revitalize

Distracted living

I was out having lunch with a friend last weekend, when mid-story I did something very wrong – I looked down at my phone. I not only looked down at my phone, I proceeded to text (it was a group text between my sister and my dad about something semi-important). I experienced two feelings: upset over being guilt tripped for answering my phone, and guilt for looking at my phone in the first place and being rude.

Radiant Skin from the Inside out

Beautiful skin feature image

When mother told us that beauty comes from the inside, she was right. Although genetics definitely play a part in fostering healthy skin, the lifestyle choices and foods we consume also have a significant effect. What many of us fail to realize is that what we put inside our body is reflected on the outside. The right foods can help us fight wrinkles, reduce acne, combat dehydration and enhance our skin’s natural beauty.
