Nor did I want to emotionally but I knew I had to be there for her. Along with my friend side, we educated ourselves on what breast cancer is, what causes it and my new found relevance to the color pink.

On behalf of their strength and high spirits, the month of October is dedicated to THINK PINK!

A podcast was alien to me, but as soon as I learn of all the benefits, I truly became addicted. I sign up to get notified on a podcast with self-help on writing, building a brand, learning a language and of course blogging. Now with two jobs and my business, I tend to lose out on what happens in the world mainly focusing on New York City. That is when I found my new guilty pleasure, Tales From The Basement.
About a month ago I mentioned in an earlier post. A close friend of mine, Paloma Zapata made her mark on the art scene. Overjoy is the best way to describe my feeling when she told me her work got approval to showcase in an art gallery. The name of the show is This Hair, This Skin, This Body by Artsy Window.
