Patiently waiting for these thunderstorms to pass. I LOVE the rain but the storms in Bali are crazzzyyyy. Like, end of the world type weather ☠️ but I guess that’s everywhere these days aye? swimsuit: @revolve@tularosalabel
I never thought I'd be considered an "activist". In fact, it took me a really long time to give a shit about... anything. Literally, ANYTHING. And today I see how young people across the world are taking time off of school to demand radical legislative action to combat climate change. It took me 30 years to become vocal about topics that I'm passionate about (ie. Women's Rights, animal adoption, financial independence, sustainable living) but now we have a 16 year old being nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for her 👩🏼 climate activism. I often wonder how my life would be different if I became "woke" earlier in life. I probably wouldn't be on Youtube so maybe it is a blessing that it took me so long to become so fucking angry - bc now I have a platform, albeit a baby one, to help inspire positive change. So let this be your reminder. The government is NOT going to help you clear your student loan debt (it's also not going to give you any money to retire with, but we can talk about that later if you'd like), it is not going to give women the rights to own own body and it is not going to put public and environmental health over big business profit. So it's OUR responsibility to make noise. Run for office, march in the streets, make decisions using your very powerful purchasing power. So let me know below: what are some causes you are going to fight for?

Do you know how hard it is to look like you’re in your 20’s when you’re 30? Gone are the days of easily produced collagen and a natural youthful glow 😭 and hello to ingredients like Retinol and light therapy. Don’t get me wrong, I would never want to turn back time (bc my 20’s? YUCK) but more attention must be paid towards ingredients that help with lines and evening out skin tone. @muradskincare Retinol Youth Serum is the #1 retinol product in the U.S. and helps with minimizing and preventing wrinkles, evening out skin tone and boosting radiance. Available at @sephora and Murad.com #muradpartner#muradskincare#sephora
What's more intimate: talking about money or talking about sex? 7 in 10 Americans consider money to be an intimate topic. So which one would you rather talk about? I mean, we all end up having the birds and the bees talk before middle school but who really sits down with us to discuss finances? I took a personal finance class my senior year but couldn't retain and/or didn't care about anything they taught because they couldn't make something like compound interest relatable to a high school student. So here's a quick lesson: in 2010 I took a $100,000 grad school student loan ranging in interest from 6.8% and 7.9%. After deferment and minimum payments, my interest compounded to $50,000 by 2017 growing my balance to $150,000. Class discussion is now open. ------

Real talk…. Who do you talk to about money? The only person who kinda/sorta/not really knew about my financial situation was Brian because when I needed to ask him to cover my portion of the rent, he knew what was up. But now Brian and I not only talk about money but we budget together on the dining room table. Of course, I have a longer way to go than he does but it has definitely shifted our relationship for the better. Not only with Brian but when my mom asks me to help her start a budget or when my friends ask me for tips; the vulnerability we feel for each other has definitely made all my relationships stronger. So, would you text a friend about your money? How about for $8,000? Share your #RealMoneyTalk convo for a chance to win and tag @IntuitTurbo, #RealMoneyTalk & #Sweepstakes.#Ad
A lot of people have shame talking about their finances. What is your 'Why'? The reason why you want to be financially free? The reason why you forgo girls night, that pricey latte, or work extra shifts?
#RealMoneyTalk - I go more into this in my latest Youtube video (link in bio) but my 'why' is to make sure I never again have to be put in a position where I have to decide between putting down my dog or going into debt to save his life. My 'why' is to be able to make decisions based on what I actually want to do, not based on the price tag associated with it. My 'why' is stability. I never in my life thought I'd be considered a financial role model, but here we are 14 months after I revealed to you all about my student loan debt. What I've discovered while going through the process of becoming financially free is that the one thing people want to feel the most is a sense of community, but people are afraid to talk about it. That's why debt and money talk is so scary. Because you feel like you are the only one in the world going through your financial situation, but you're not. I'm partnering with @IntuitTurbo to open up the conversation and remove the shame associated with talking about money. So tell me, what is your #RealkMoneyTalk story? How did you get out of (or in) debt? Spill it! Did I mention this is also your opportunity to win $8,000? Share your financial story and tag @IntuitTurbo#RealMoneyTalk & #Sweepstakes for a chance to win $8,000 to help you achieve one of your goals! #ad
PMSing and cramps give us an excuse to once a month do whatever we need to make us happy and comfortable. For me, that mostly means eating any kind of sweet and salty I can get my hands on and being overly sensitive with whomever I get on the phone. Something that also makes life easier is having my @lola delivered directly to my home. Only a female owned business would understand how important convenience and transparency are to feminine hygiene products. Non toxic, 100% organic, hypoallergenic and biodegradable means I spend less time worrying about what's in my tampons and more time worrying about whether Postmates is going to get my family size bag of chips + ranch dip + a gallon of cherry ice cream order correct.
