Put This On Your Mind

Nour Khaled is a Muslim Arabic American, University of Michigan graduate, independent woman, and dare I say Jedi. She has worked hard to put herself on the path she desired--she's on her way to become hard to become a cardiovascular surgeon and mentor.

This week we're talking body positivity, creating the life you want, a middle child who had to manage up, Star Wars, and growing up as a Muslim American. 



This week my special guest co-host is Jay Orellana.  
Jay is a MAC makeup artist, per diem drag performer, full-time friendly face and the best damn Horchata maker in town. Mixing beauty, intelligence, charm, and humor to make a delicious cocktail of friendship.

Nothing left to do but enjoy.

Curious about the drink we shared on the show? 

Check out Nick's Perfect  Day Drinking Daiquiri:

What you need-

  • 2oz Rum
  • 1oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1/2oz Simple Syrup.

Shake everything with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

For the show, Nick made variation with Wilkes & Wilson's Pineapple Gomme Syrup instead of simple.

*Don't forget to drink responsibility, and thoughtfully*

Musings Episode 12

There are times when we find ourselves desperate to really give someone a piece of our mind. After an offense there's a build up of agitation, energy, and HURT that comes to a boil we seek validation, acknowledgement, or some effort of amens.

If we don't get it, do we then demand it? Or is there profound value in...silence?

This week I'm talking the power of saying nothing, and focusing on YOU!

Look Into YOU

Standard Expectations

One of the the most recent blessings in my life Abu. While he might be soft spoken his perspective on life is BIG. We discuss body image, eating/activity habits, retail experience, the power of humor, and the standard expectations of relationships--with partners, friends, and your parents. 

Abu is a man who is not afraid to do the work to have the life that you want--between the effort and the self care. His advice is always simple; drink water, go for a walk, moisturize your skin, and mind your damn business. 

There is a lot to learn, and even more to enjoy.

Watch out there's a surprise twist at the end!

Let's acknowledge that sometimes it just sucks.

This week we're looking at the teeth marks from when life bites you in the soft tissue, before I we start dressing the wound. Take a moment to acknowledge and process those "moment of impact" feelings doesn't take away from the fact that eventually you will figure it out and it will "un-suck"...so take the time to process your feelings.

Don't get stuck, Starshine. 
But take a moment to exhale and acknowledge this fucking sucks.
