I jumped on the band wagon for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

I wasn’t going to participate first but I decided to and I explain why in the video.

I also think Angelina’s part should count as an Ice Bucket Fail :)

..this was much colder than I expected.

public speaking danielle ford

About a year ago, I was interviewed by the producers of the popular public speaking documentary “Speak”.

They were putting together another documentary that was aimed towards high school students.

Well, it finally came out and is being used as a tool for teachers to use in high schools.

Here’s a clip from my segment in the movie.

Chi-to-Be by Stacey Hall- Book Review

Maybe I’m a little biased because I know this author in real life and I LOVE HER. She’s been a great friend and mentor to me in many ways- but this is seriously one of the best books I’ve ever read.

I read Chi-to-Be about a year ago on a day when I wasn’t feeling too well. It was an irritable, eating chocolate, laying on my couch kind of day that happens to me about once a month. (Ladies, you know what I mean..)

I was waiting for Netflix to load and I was about to binge on Grey’s Anatomy when I decided to open Chi-to-Be and skim through it to see what it was all about.

Well, that didn’t work out like I expected. I read the whole book in one day and never pushed play on Netflix. (You know something’s good for me to choose it over Meredith Grey and McDreamy’s “will they? won’t they?” drama..

In this video I’ll explain exactly why I love Chi-to-Be by Stacey Hall and how it’s helped me to reach my goals.

I’m not a big “New Years Resolutions” type of girl. When I decide I want to change something, I start that day or prepare to start at the beginning of the next month. I make quarterly and monthly goals because a year is just too far ahead for me to plan for. I do however, [...]

This Food Babe is my Girl Crush

Seriously, I love Food Babe. I’ve changed my diet a lot in this past year. First I started by juicing vegetables and fruits at least once a day. Then I cut out most dairy. I switched completely to almond milk and with the exception of cheese sometimes (not a big cheese fan, though), I rarely [...]
