Strategize to Win: Fueling your passion


So let me tell you guys about the book that started it all, and is part of the reason why I’m blogging in the first place. The book is called Strategize to Win: The New Way to Start Out, Step Up, Or Start Over in Your Career and is written by Carla A. Harris, an amazing author and Wall Street powerhouse. I nothing short of devoured this book, and gawked at her unbelievable insight! It’s a page-turner for anyone with ambitions of making a life for themselves that they love!

On the runway: Ieena for Mac Duggal

As many of you know, from July 3rd-9th I competed in the Miss World America pageant, and what an amazing experience it was! I was crowned Miss Illinois World, made top 5 in the Interview and Social Media Challenge categories, AND made overall top 10!

Representing others on a national stage has been a dream of mine. Though I never imagined in a million years that pageantry would be my platform, I will now be able to do so this summer at the Miss World America 2016 pageant in Washington D.C.

30 Day Arms Challenge (Toning & Muscle Building)

It’s Monday again! The first Monday of May starts the beginning of my 30 Day Arms Challenge for toning and building muscle. Arms are such a trouble area for many women so I decided to post a challenge that is easy to complete, but produces great results!

The more pictures you post with the hashtag, the more chances you have to win the challenge.

Survival Guide for a Long Distance Friendship

Friendships are relationships that need to be nurtured in different ways, and often stand the test of time if done right. For me, my close friends are as important to me as family. We share many parts of our lives, support each other, help each other in times of need, make sure that we grow in our lives, and provide each other with endless memories. It seems as if the older I get, there more everyone seems to be spreading out all over the country for jobs, family, relationships, and just for fun.
