Townsend Blues

Moving to Austin has allowed us to connect with some pretty impressive people, not that we didn’t do the same in California, but… It’s different in Austin.  It’s not as easy to connect for business here (in my opinion), because people actually want to build relationships with each other.  Which is AWESOME, but it takes […]

“I’M OK Superhero 5K”

This past month has been an absolute blur…  From the Epilepsy Foundation’s 5K, a private blue’s show, to the Austin Woman Magazine’s Summer Launch Party, back around to KetoCon Weekend and Austin Small Biz’s 14th Annual Women’s Entrepreneurial Luncheon, and finally a photo shoot with Engage Austin & Jade Nelson.  WOW!  Is there an adjective […]

Pancakes? Yes Please!

Who doesn’t love pancakes?  They are great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.  You can top them with just about anything, and they are so easy to make! A few weeks ago, I teased you with a pancake recipe…  Well, my pancake recipe turned out to be more crepe-like, but I also perfected pancakes.  Today, […]

You Better Work

Many people have asked about my workout routine, but I have to be honest – My fitness & health aren’t just about my workout.  It’s about the combination of diet, exercise, & lifestyle. I want to first address my lifestyle, because it’s the easiest to sum up.  I left the stressful fashion industry behind, and […]

Another Diagnosis

This is the second part of Fragile Life. I received my blood test results in two days as promised, along with a note that said,”Make an appointment to discuss results.” (Gulp.) I quickly made an appointment to discuss my results.  In the mean time, I reached out to a few people to get their opinions […]

Fragile Life

I’ve had a beauty mark on my left breast for as long as I can remember.  In fact, I can’t remember a time before it existed.  It’s part of who I am in some way, but over the past year I’ve grown paranoid.  You see, it’s not symmetrical, and I often wondered if it may […]

Reflection

It happened… In the blink of an eye, 36 years of life flew by. I’m still in shock. It seems so surreal. The evening before my birthday, we attended a fundraiser for the SIMS Foundation in Austin. (It’s a great organization promoting mental health within the music community. Donate to them when able.) As I […]

Mentor Magic

Having a mentor means so much more to me than having someone provide guidance and direction.  It menas I finally get to achieve my goal of making Life Elektrik a nonprofit organization, something I’ve been working towards since March 2017 (really longer, if you count my many failed attempts .)  When I created Life Elektrik, […]

Everyone Falls

I messed up…  It took a while to notice, because I keep myself busy with work.  I’m coming clean today! People always ask me,”How do you have so much self-discipline” to stay away from fast food, sugar, caffeine, etc?” Well, it’s not easy, nor am I perfect.  I fall.  I fall flat on my face […]

Difficult Decisions

I’VE ALWAYS KNOWN From an early age, I always knew I wouldn’t have children… I wasn’t diagnosed with epilepsy until age 25, so there was no known logical reason for me to think that children wouldn’t be in my future. I remember drawing a particular picture of myself at a one day… kneeling down beside […]
