It’s  not every day you get invited to fly to china for a BASE jumping event. So when you do you jump at it… or off it 😉   Jumping off the glass skywalk was one of the scariest and most beautiful things I have experienced in a LONG time! Check it out 😀

While I was growing up I remember people always asking me what I wanted to do. I never really knew how to answer them. Not because I was unaware of all of the job choices that would be laid out infant of me, but because I didn’t fully understand the question. I never wanted to DO just anything. That sounded horribly boring to me, But I did however want to BE everything. I think that is one of the major flaws in our current system. We rarely ask what we want to BE? Knowing what we want to DO is…

Traveling has done me the pleasure of opening my eyes and has changed my view of the world, emotions and humanity as a whole. Some times in a positive way and sometimes in a negative way, But typically the dualities even out in the end. What one country lacks in a specific area they usually make up in some other way. In some of my more recent travels a very sad reality was brought to my attention. Maybe because they chose not to hide it, maybe because they participate in this destructive behavior more  due to induction or maybe they…

It’s no lie that I love to go on adventures. Exploring this world and the fun things to do seems to be my life calling. But… Adventure and exploration isn’t exclusive to international or even domestic travel. It can manifest in so many different ways. Hence my new adventure. I have always been interested in fashion. It is not a secrete that I have a huge obsession with high heel shoes and I love how fashion and clothing can set, change and evoke different feelings and emotions. Over the last few years I toyed with the idea of creating my…

To the woman in the grocery store who tried to publicly shame me because of the scrapes and bruises on my legs. Claiming that I would never find a man who would love me looking like a “punching bag” To the person who views their body as the entirety of their worth, rather than a vessel that can help them achieve greater things. The belief that a scrape or a bruise that was acquired through following a passion some how diminishes the total value of your existence. My worth is not dictated by the love of another and that love…

Every now and then I reach a point in my life where the questions seem to be piling up. What do I want to accomplish? What should I do next? Where do I want to end up? How do I get there? Is this the best time? Questions that have some weight to them. Not exactly simple day to day questions. Yet at times like these, for some reason, the answers seem to be in short supply. Every time I feel as though I’m coming close to an answer it some how seems to evade me. It is right there…

Some times the things you work so hard to accomplish don’t turn out the way you want them to. Things that you poured your heart and soul into fizzle out. The things that you thought were a sure thing suddenly disappear leaving you wondering what happened to all the progress you had made. Not everything is made to succeed. Not everything that you focus on and work towards will come to fruition, But that doesn’t mean you should stop trying.  The only path to success is through failure. Failing is a great indication of growth and progress. That is if…

Every year for the past several years I have put together a shopping list named BASE girls guide to shopping for you adventure woman, or something of the sort! I always included products I loved, used, or wanted. I was never paid to include items. They were always from the heart and useful items. But this year I wanted to do something different. To move away from the insane consumerism that plagues the holiday season. It is so sad to me how much importance is placed on products and things. I know in my life I value experiences far more…

So grateful for the amazing and wonderful friends that I have. I’m even more grateful for the awesome connections I have to amazing and inspiring women. In my sports there is such a huge gap between the male and female participants. On any given trip there will be 10-20 guys and only one to two girls. So it’s really special when so many awesome and positive ladies can get together to have a great day slackening in the park. Thanks for an awesome day lovely ladies! xoxo https://youtu.be/S7kJWyVik74

Sometimes you find a place, a special place, that fills your life with so much joy. A place that enabled the creation of countless memories with friends and loved ones. A place that captures your heart and soul. For as long as I can remember Moab has been that place for me. Epically beautiful landscapes, adventures for days, legal BASE jumps (but thats not the point 😉 I fell in love with Moab from the second I first drove in. There is something so special about that place, something that makes me feel so at peace, so full of life…
