Facing Fear: Heights Edition

So, I went rock climbing this weekend. If you know me: no, this is not a joke. I, Bex, with a fear of heights, went to the local Inner Peaks to go rock climbing. How, you may ask, did I end up climbing too many feet off the ground, secured only with a metal link [...]

The Post-Vacation Blues

My post-vacation blues are tropical teals and deep ocean blues and seaweed greens. Guys, I just spent the past week in Jamaica and I don’t want to be back. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I missed my family and my quiet bed (the resort’s beds were weirdly loud when trying to get in or [...]

Yoga and Fries

That’s balance.  That’s the couple scoops of dairy-free ice [...]

Alex Morgan and Marta and More – Oh My!

So, you remember a while back when I wrote that post about If you give a girl a soccer ball?  Well, this past week I got to see firsthand how soccer impacts other young girls and women and it was absolutely incredible. My friend Jordan and I took a trip up to Raleigh, NC (technically [...]
