I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.
All the world is my television and I like to provide commentary on it.

Smizing through a pandemic

Many years ago, I loved watching America’s Next Top Model. It was one of the “reality” shows that I loved to catch. Perhaps in part because I love photography and I love mixing up styles. What I really loved about the show was the smizing aspect. What is […]

More cravings and brain fog

A pandemic can do weird things to a person. Well, it devastates a society and can brutally harm some bodies. And, it can give you brain fog. It can muddy your decision-making process. Can make you jump. Can make you freeze. I also started craving things I normally […]
