2nd-blogiversary

Two years ago, I decided to jump back into the blogging world and launched Sincerely Shanti (see my first post here).  While sometimes it feels like just yesterday and others a lifetime I’m so grateful to have created a platform where I could share my ideas and thoughts with all of you.  Honestly, I never could have imagined that Sincerely Shanti would grow into what it is today and the brands I’ve partnered with thus far.

November 28, 2017
moving

Long time no see! It’s been a crazy few weeks since my last post but I’ve finally accomplished my goal of moving to New York.  Honestly, even though I’ve been here for a little over half a month it still feels so surreal.  If you follow me on Instagram/Facebook you know getting here involved many flights back & forth for various interviews and then packing up everything in a week once landing the role I’m in now. Why the move?…

“If a window of opportunity appears, don’t pull down the shade.”  – Tom Peters A few weeks ago, the company I was with dissolved and I was laid off for the first time ever in my career.  While devastating & stress-inducing for most I felt like this was the perfect opportunity to achieve my next goal.

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Pet Magasin but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Life Lessons: Letting Go

August 10, 2017

“You will always grow through, what you go through.” – Tyrese Gibson  As humans, we only tend to share what’s good in our lives but become radio silent otherwise.  We sweep all the bad phases, relationships, friendships, and losses under a rug as if nothing happened. Even though these very people/situations we attempt to sweep away actually make an impact (good or bad) in our present day life. Losing people whom you loved can either carry/release a lot of weight…
