Pink Out Loud! Giveaway with Paul Mitchell & Victoria’s Secret

Paul Mitchell Pink Out Loud for Breast Cancer Prevention and Awareness
According to METAvivor, “if you know someone who has died from breast cancer, they died from metastatic (stage 4) breast cancer. Most people don’t know that, and even fewer people understand that…

Metastatic breast cancer, or stage 4 breast cancer, is the spread of breast cancer to non-adjacent parts of the body — most commonly to the bones, liver, lungs and/or brain. Many effective breast cancer treatments exist, but if the cancer metastasizes and spreads outside of the breast, there is no cure.

He Named Me Malala

#HeNamedMeMalala

 


Malala Yousafzai has accomplished more for women’s rights in a mere decade than I could hope to contribute in 3 lifetimes. She is only human, but the depth of her humanity proves immeasurable by any metrics known to me.

This month the inspirational documentary of how Malala Yousafzai’s homeland (the Swat Valley of Pakistan) was taken over by Taliban extremists, how her family endured under the de facto rule of terrorists, and how Malala became a beacon for female education and empowerment, is being released in select US theaters. As of now, the film will only screen during the month of October.

The full list of theaters is here.

Find Your Flow in 2015 with Mahilani Akiona

Mahilani Akiona Guest Blog for THINK LIKE A BOSS LADY, created by Lisa Tufano

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again and again: I have been really lucky to meet amazingly adventurous and ambitious women. I can’t help but think that we get drawn together by magnetic boss lady forces, a force field of mutual curiosity and awe for discovering the world and taking personal risks. These women are not fearless, but they are courageous, and that’s what really matters.

One of the most recent additions to my social circle happened just a little over a year ago in the form of Mahilani Akiona, but I will let her tell you how she came to be in Los Angeles. All I can say is that she is the embodiment of boss lady spirit, and my conversations with her actually fueled the creation of the TLABL blog in the first place.

3 Easy Tips to Kickstart Your Gratitude

Thanksgiving… it’s not just about pilgrims and pie, although I do happen to know a real life pilgrim who also concocts incredible baked goods, explores the world, and is gloriously experienced in the art of gratitude. And she goes by the name of Dr. Therese Mascardo.

Dr. Therese, a modern pilgrim if you will, is a living model of grace, generosity, and gratitude. I’m not kidding, she is the kind of “nice” that is both magnetic as well as shocking. If we lived in a fairy forest, Therese would be the beloved princess for whom the wildlife big and small forget their shyness or instinctual aggression. The larks would fishtail braid her hair and the flowers would unfurl their petals in unison to bask in the warmth of her radiant soul.

So then, who better to share a little wisdom about giving thanks than this purple-haired pilgrim that I’m so blessed to call my friend?
