Did you know that 84% of women of color say they have toxic friendships? 😱 — What the hell, y’all?😒 We deserve better than toxicity. We owe it to ourselves, the children watching us, and our own joy to let that shit go.

Impressions from Denmark will be collected again from now on 🇩🇰 as I'm back! I always loved being colorful, so naturally I'm a fan of Scandinavian houses. Even though the Danes love their colorful houses, unfortunately their fashion styles are pretty dark and plain. Luckily they have me adding some color.

COLOR OUTSIDE CORE VALUES: ✔RESPECT- We have the utmost respect for ourselves, for one another and the natural world around us. ˙ ✔SUPPORT- We're here for each other -- both on the trails and off. No one gets left behind. No one feels excluded. ˙ ✔UNAPOLOGECTIC- We accept everyone exactly where they are. There's no need to apologize for being too slow or too fast or too "out of shape." Just be you. ˙ ✔ADVENTUROUS- Adventure means different things to different people. For us, it means approaching life with an open mind, curiosity and a willingness to try. ˙ ✔WOC CENTERED- We're welcoming to all women from all backgrounds but the experiences, thoughts, concerns, and voices of women of color will always be at the forefront and will absolutely be centered.

Going ice skating instantly takes me back to my childhood. My Dad loved ice skating, and taught himself after growing up in Barbados and moving to cooler climates. He passed that love down to me and my siblings. Naturally, I wanted to pass this “family tradition” down to my children. Filled with nostalgia, I set out to take Zoe on a Mommy Daughter Ice Skating Date. Zoe’s such a natural talent that I thought for sure that she’d love it as much as I do. Watching her toddle out in her tiny skates and super cute pink Fleecie by @Saras.Prints made me beam with pride. But, in case you haven’t noticed, my sweet little fierce girl has never had a problem expressing herself and promptly let me know that ice skating was not her jam. Turns out, she prefers drinking hot cocoa and watching her mum skate. So that’s what we did. I reignited my childhood memories and Z was warm and snuggly in her fleece with her hot cocoa taking it all in. I’d say that’s a win. #Sponsored #SarasPrints #WidegeonFleecie #IceSkating

#Sponsored: RECIPE + GIVEAWAY! I shared my Bajan Sweet Bread recipe that I inherited from my mum over on @TodaysMama! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My mum really encouraged me to be confident and BOLD. I credit a lot of my success to the way she raised me. So I'm excited to share one of the things that connects me to her -- food! The initiative of @mysupport360 is special to me because of my Aunt Ruby. She was diagnosed and passed away really quickly (and unexpectedly) from ovarian cancer. It happened at a time when I was unhappy with my life.. so it was a wake up call to just do the things I had on my heart. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Click the link in my profile to get the recipe + ENTER TO WIN $1,000 CASH + a KitchenAid Mixer + a Canon Camera package! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Disclaimer: This contest and holiday recipe series is sponsored by Myriad Genetics, the makers of the myRisk Hereditary Cancer test. Did you know that if a member of your family (even extended family like aunts and cousins) has been diagnosed with cancer UNDER THE AGE OF 50 that there is a chance that a gene mutation may be present in your family? The good news? There's a simple online quiz to help you to assess whether you might be a good candidate for testing.

The #TravelMovement will have you believing that collecting passport stamps is the only way to grow, to chase experiences, to experience Earth. And while it's important to explore, you can explore your own back yard and grow deeper, experience just as much if not more, and become one with Mother Earth. — Pack your car and go.

I read this wonderful article by @teresabaker11 in @audubonsociety that instantly took me back to my childhood. Where staying outside until the streetlights were on was a normal occurrence and exploring the world around you was second nature. — Of course, times have changed and a majority of kids aren't the little explorers we were, at least in the "go outside and don't come back until the streetlights are on" way. But there's still ample opportunity, especially through our public lands and national parks that can encourage that same adventurous spirit. Yet, there isn't much diversity when you visit these areas. Teresa's explanation broke it down beautifully: — "To diversify the outdoors, we must first get to the heart of the issue: the history of our public lands, which have traditionally been getaways for the privileged. The founding of our national parks, for instance, pushed Native Americans off lands, some sacred, that they’d long inhabited. More recently, our parks were segregated. Take Shenandoah National Park: In the 1930s, signs directed “Negroes” to one area, Lewis Mountain, while the rest of the park—tens of thousands of acres—was exclusively for white people. The rule was finally lifted in 1947, but it sent a message to African Americans that has lasted for generations: Public lands do not welcome you. That legacy affects how African Americans view our place in the outdoors today. We tend not to venture out to the places that society has deemed “wild spaces,” like Yosemite. Staying closer to home offers a sense of safety that these faraway locations don’t." — So yes. Let's encourage our kids and take them out to explore, adventure, and appreciate the wild spaces.

#REPOST | @unlikelyhikers “When I was growing up, I thought it was normal for black folk to be in the outdoors because my dad was a backpacker/mountaineer/climber/skier. He was always taking my brothers and I, and sometimes even our friends, out into the woods. It wasn’t until I was older and doing this on my own without him that I realized I was the only brotha out here. I take pride in the fact my father exposed us and created a passion for outdoor recreation. I make it a goal to do the same for my two boys.” -Nick / @outdoorgearandbeer ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pronouns: he/him ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ [image description: a man puts his arm around his kid’s shoulders outside.
