Congrats to visual artist and sacred bombshell Damali Abrams! I agree with many art galleries and spaces that Damali is the bees knees. Sure, she’s my sister, but this woman rocks. Now you can support her residency in Seoul, South Korea. And yes — as you’ll see when you scroll to the bottom to contribute —…Details

My new book The Sacred Bombshell Handbook of Self-Love is more than just a book. It’s a self-esteem revolution for women. As a part of this movement, I am launching an online meditation course with Udemy.com to empower you to love yourself more. Although the book and the meditations can work together, you don’t need to have read the book to take the meditation class or to benefit from it’s knowledge.Details
To say that I am tea-obsessed is probably an understatement. I come by my tea-ness honestly, my parents are from a former British colony and it turns out that they were right in their assertion that “have a hot tea” can cure almost anything! My friends know I drink hot tea all summer, my mother has a cabinet filled only with tea, my sister makes fresh teas, and I generally drink (at least) two or three kinds of tea a day.

My fabulous friend Christelyn Karazin is the go-to expert when it comes to interracial dating and women feeling empowered to make their own choices about their love lives. Yes! A couple of months ago, I interviewed Christelyn about her fun, new web series “Swirlr” for my Mommy Noire column. An interview with Christelyn is also featured in my new mind-body-spirit advice guide, “The Sacred Bombshell Handbook of Self-Love.”
Now, Moguldom, the wonderful people behind the Madame Noire-Mommy Noire empire is unveiling a new project on the subject. I haven’t had a chance to check out their comprehensive new documentary “The Swirl,” but the wonderful Brianna Cox is one the case. You can find the trailer for the film and find out how to see it after the jump.
Brianna is working with me this summer as a Media Liaison. Let’s give her a round of applause for her first post on this blog. Take it away, Brianna…Details
Wow. This has been a long time coming and this post actually has me tearing up…Details
I’ve returned to yoga after a long absence and it’s so good to be back. My Love-Body-Spirit whole life detox program (link) includes a daily yoga lesson because I really feel that a mind-body-spirit practice like yoga is essential for our overall well-being. The participants in my program find Hannah’s daily video lessons easy to follow and empowering. She also creates custom yoga videos on-demand.
Oh – and that’s not me or Hannah in the featured image. That is Hannah below, however.Details
