The “Happy” Me.

I’ve created a life that I love to live. Essentially, I’m really happy. I have a health and wellness routine that works for me, and a strong spiritual life. I have great friends and a loving family, with whom I enjoy spending quality time. I volunteer for causes that are important to me, and I enjoy fulfilling hobbies. My career is rewarding; I do what I love and love what I do. Follow this up with the fact that I believe in the “glad game” – the notion of finding something to be glad about in each and every situation. Then, tie a big pretty pink bow on my life’s package, and there you have it, the reason I’m really happy.

MAGnificent Governor, Stacey Abrams

Stacey Abrams is the Democratic candidate for Governor in Georgia. And we fervently hope this MAG wins in November.  She is the former state house minority leader and she could become the nation’s first black female governor. And we loudly cheer — Go Stacey Go!  Her determination, resilience, and drive to lead provide her with all the attributes needed to move our nation forward. Her candidacy is making news and providing hope to all GRRRLS that support a woman’s right to make a difference. What makes Stacey a MAG?

BAD*SS Costumes for Boss Babes!

Feeling overwhelmed by Halloween this year?  Tired of dressing up as a sexy mouse, a sexy nurse, a sexy nun (yes, this exists), or a sexy whatever, I am right there with you. I’ve made it my mission to find costumes that focus on all of the things about women that make us strong, fierce, and fearless (in addition to our undeniable sexiness). — and these costumes get that message across loud and clear!

MAG HEALTH: Tittty Talk

Let’s talk about titties. Do I have your attention Grrrls? Nothing like dropping the tittie bomb for a little gratuitous breast talk. According to Webster titties are the most vulgar label for breasts. Not nearly as bubbly and fun-loving as the ubiquitous Boob. Call them what you want, they belong to you. Just do me this favor, particularly this month—touch ‘em a bit will ya?  And then take them to some one else, ideally a medical professional, and have her touch ‘em some more. And maybe also screen them once or twice.  Why?  Because its October and this is the time of year when we Grrrls put our titties….um, breasts on high alert.

Musings From A MAG in Training

I am incredibly excited to continue my college life.  And living in Brooklyn is now an amazing part of my journey.  Currently, I am patiently waiting for the humidity to pass, fall clothing to be appropriate, and the butterflies in my tummy to quiet. 

0-5

In the early weeks of August, MyAttaGrrrl posted a quote stating that “Life Doesn’t Get Better, You Do.”  I greatly appreciated this quote.  As a student,  I do question my purpose at this University. I wonder what the importance of my two year relationship served?  (Ya know, first love and all…) And I ask myself what drives me?  I think about who and what makes me happy?

In my short 20 years of life, I have learned that these times of wonderment will become the defining moments that push me to become the person I have always wanted to be. In other words, through the highs and lows, I have found the greatest pieces of myself when life feels most challenging. In these times of strife, I have learned to welcome each and every new beginning wholeheartedly.

Cocktail Attire Required!

Throwing a summer cocktail party can be as simple as sharing pitchers of sangria on the rooftop, but come fall and winter, attending a cocktail party suddenly seems more complicated. Yes, it’s that time of year, Grrrls, and a whole new set of “what to wear” rules apply!  Here’s to deciphering the party season’s most ambiguous dress code, MAG Style.

MAG UP For FALL

I officially declare Fall as MAG season. With a September birthday I am already partial to the “ber” months—September, October, November and December. But its more than that. Fall is a time to rejuvenate and where necessary, replenish. I reject January as the signature time to reflect both on one’s abundance and opportunities. When summer heat morphs into the cool breeziness of a crisp Fall day, there is no better time to take stock of your MAGness and plan an attack. Make Fall a time to Renew, Reshape and Recharge.
