Still Looking For the Perfect Gift This Holiday Season? I’ve Got You Covered…

We have quickly reached the middle of December.  You know what that means… it is almost the end of another year and another season of holiday cheer.

I don’t know about you, but I have about 60% of all my holiday shopping done.  I still have a few gifts I need to purchase, but I am getting close to checking everything off the list. 

I am usually the worst at buying gifts on time.  Procrastinator should be my middle…

Let’s Talk About Your Why… and Finding Balance

I recently shared with everyone who follows my journey on Dama Camelia that I will be refocusing and dedicating this website to my professional writing.  Moving forward, my plan is to fill my journal with writing prompts and tips for becoming a better wordsmith.  I will also be expanding into the world of branding, marketing, and direct-response copywriting because I just so happen to focus my time on all of these.    

In directing my energies towards my…

How One Practice Changed My Life and How It Can Change Yours

I started practicing yoga at home for two reasons: I felt like going to a yoga studio was selfish of me, (more on that later) and I didn’t want to spend $80-$100 a month for classes.  I knew that if I was going to commit to doing a daily practice, I would need the flexibility to fit it into my schedule.  Sometimes that means first thing in the morning, and other times it is at 10 PM at night, yet…

How to Succeed with an At-Home Practice

When I decided to start my yoga transformation a few months ago, I knew I had to change something in order to stay on track. Health and wellness were always at the top of my list of priorities and interests, but I failed over and over at staying on the path. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again with no results, so I decided it was time to do something radically different for…

Being Healthy is About More Than How You Look

I was standing in line at Publix on my way home from work yesterday and saw a picture of Jessica Biel on the cover of US Weekly that made me do a double take. Her vibrancy jumped off the page, and her soft smile looked incredibly peaceful. The headline was something along the lines of “Celebrities Reveal Their Best Fitness Tips.” I have always admired Jessica Biel for her dedication to health and fitness, so I was intrigued by…

Status Update…

As some of you may know, aside from Dama Camelia, I have a lifestyle blog called My Life As A Baseball Wife. It was a blog that I started back in 2012 and then took a hiatus from for several years. About a year ago, I revived My Life As A Baseball Wife (MLBW), blew off the dust and brought it back to life. This, however, resulted in some growing pains. At the time, I was managing this blog…

Status Update…

Since reviving My Life As A Baseball Wife (MLBW) several months back, I have experienced slight growing pains. At the time, I was managing another blog and I was struggling to find a balance between the two; I had to determine what each blog would be about.  On my other blog, Dama Camelia, I was focusing mostly on writing about my love for reading and writing, but I was also throwing in a little bit…

Happy Hanukkah and Start of Advent! Plus a Great Gift Idea

Good morning! It has been a while since I have been able to jump on here and share my musings with you.  I have been swamped with client and volunteer work, plus school and family, but nevertheless, I wanted to take a moment to wish you all a Happy Hanukkah and start to Advent – even if I am a little late.

Hanukkah is a time symbolic of hope and Advent prepares us for the birth of our savior by…

My Halloween Baby is Turning FIVE

It is unfathomable that my first baby is turning FIVE in only two days! Jethro’s due date was October 31st, but I swore throughout my entire pregnancy that the odds of him being born on Halloween would be null.  Not only was Jethro born on time, he made his grand entrance into the world just after 8 PM EST.  As people all around the nation were going door to door dressed up in their costumes and trick-o-treating, copious amounts…

I Have A Secret, And It’s Not What You Think

I am so excited about this post.  When I decided to start blogging again, I wanted to do it the right way.   Instead of keeping ninety percent of my life private and only sharing the remaining ten percent, I wanted to use this platform to really connect with my audience.

In the process of living out my passion of writing, I intend to bring value to my audience and share more intimate details about my life, including things I…
