    Why Disney Ruined my Love Life

    I’m a recovering romantic. I blame Disney for convincing me that love was a thing of make believe and fairy tales. For instilling in me this idea of “Princess Culture” where beauty is the most valuable asset a woman can offer, and being sweet and submissive are her forms of charm. Now, I don’t claim to be a feminist, but with the rise of the “Me Too” movement and #Timesup, I’m beginning to see how women’s experiences (including my own) have been shaped by this culture. You see, for most of my life, I dreamt about being rescued by Prince Charming. You know the type. That dashing guy who swings…

    What to Expect When Hiking Havasupai

    Havauspai is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Arizona, if not the world! Hidden deep within the Grand Canyon, it’s natural beauty is unmatched by any other. There is a presence and peace that whispers through the red walls, and a healing power found within the falls. The journey begins with a 10 mile trek into the most remote community in the United States, Supai, home to the Havasupai Indian Tribe. It is only accessible by foot, mule or helicopter. Havasupai means “people of the blue-green water,” and for the last ten centuries, the Havasupai Tribe has served as keepers of this sacred land. It is sad…

    Art Naturals Aromatherapy

    With “relax” as my word of the year for 2018, I’ve been taking steps to do just that. As part of my “Wellness Wednesday” series, I wanted to share with you my love for aromatherapy. Aromatherapy uses the aromatic oils of plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. When essential oils are inhaled, aromatic molecules travel to the limbic and olfactory systems of the brain. These control emotions and memory, and directly communicate with the hypothalamus which regulates our autonomic nervous systems. The autonomic nervous system controls all of our unconscious functions, such as breathing, heart rhythm, hormone secretion, and much more. Woah. That…
