20Something Women Discuss What A ‘Beach Bod’ Means To Them

March 28, 2018

I don’t think there has been a time in my life (besides when I was a carefree kid and didn’t think about this stuff), where I’ve felt like a fucking rockstar on the beach in my bikini. No matter what size I am, I still feel like a beached whale laying on my towel. I’m not sure how my mind turned from “yass, girl roll around in the sand and build those sandcastles” to “do not get up, every one…

In Which of These Pictures Am I Struggling With Depression?

March 28, 2018

Millions of people, on a daily basis, use the term “I’m so depressed” — yet the majority of them have no idea what that actually means. I admittedly was one of those people who used that term loosely until I lived and breathed it myself. Now, looking back on the last year or so of my life, I’ve thrown around the phrase “I’m so depressed” one too many times, giving it that nonchalant feeling it doesn’t deserve. Then reality hit,…

I Tried Meditating For 5 Days Straight And Here's What Happened

June 29, 2017

In an attempt to not allow this beautiful city we call NYC to create an anxious monster (that I may have already started to become), I decided to try something new: meditation. Celebrities swear by it, health magazines never stop promoting it, but it sounded ridiculous for someone like me to try. My brain is in constant overdrive. Either I’m thinking about everything I need to do for the day, (or week, or next few weeks…), worrying about something insignificant…

I Asked A Dietitian All The Questions I’m Secretly Wondering

May 14, 2017

These days, nutrition advice is at the tip of our fingers; hundreds of “experts” claim their programs will slim you down in no time, promote “healthy” products Instagram posts, shove things like AdvoCare and juice cleanses down our throats and glorify a piece of pizza as a “cheat meal.” YOU DO YOU, people, but after subjecting my body to many of these things, I decided to stop while I was ahead and consult my best friend who happens to be a dietitian…

5 Steps To Remaining Positive In A Negative Work Environment

January 17, 2017

Whether you’ve just started a new job, or are in the thick of a stressful one, finding and holding on to the positives is key. However, I’ve learned that it can be difficult AF to hold on to any sort of positivity when the work environment and people that surround you are constantly negative. Dealing with high stress jobs or situations at work is always something I’ve been able to handle. Especially if I was experiencing them with people who…

Hello, Fitspo: 5 Fitness Instagram Accounts That Will Get You Moving IRL

January 16, 2017

Originally Published On 20Some.com Jumping into a new year is typically centered around dieting, getting back into a fitness routine, and obsessing over the “fitspo” filling our social media feeds on a daily basis. We set unrealistic goals for ourselves, end up falling back into that pizza box face first, and start the cycle all over again. But what if we could take one positive step this new year toward our fitness goals? What if that one step was as easy…

Embrace The New: Dealing With Life's Never Ending Changes

November 21, 2016

  Change, big or small, has always been difficult for me. Whether it was my parents buying a new couch, or moving to a new town, I probably cried over it (and demanded things stay the same). But, that’s not how life works apparently. I’ve only (in the last year) recently realized how much new changes in my life affected me on an emotional level. This past year, I moved to NYC with admittedly no real set life plan. It…

October 10, 2016

As a follower of Nitika Chopra, beauty & lifestyle expert and inspiring talk show host, it was an easy decision to choose her to interview for my next installation of ‘Girl Boss 101’. However, what I didn’t know was the series of take-aways that I myself would walk away with from not only this interview with but her ‘Deep Dive Into Self-Love’ event. Since I have started speaking with women for Girl Boss, I have realized that in one way or another…

Girl Boss 101: Meet Lauren Bongiorno Who’s Making Waves In The Health Industry

July 29, 2016

  “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life” Finding our dream career is no easy task. Searching for that inner drive, strength, and passion to go beyond society’s expectations and take the ‘road less traveled’ can be even more challenging. But, it is possible.For a long time I didn’t believe that. I thought that I had to go the ‘safe’ route (job wise) rather than pushing myself to combine all the things I…
