GOOD VIBES: A Mixtape

A mixtape consisting of bossa nova and lounge music.
I wholeheartedly  believe in the power of music. I don’t know about you, but there are few things more therapeutic than popping my headphones in and zoning out to my favorite songs. Pandora or Spotify gets many of us through long, strenuous days of work, and I’d be willing to bet money that you’ve bonded with a now close friend over a mutual love of an artist or genre of music.

This is because music empowers and inspires; offers a retreat from day-to-day stress, and most importantly, brings people together.

I have created a playlist that encompasses all of these qualities. Most of the songs in this playlist fall into the bossa nova and lounge genres because I’m extremely passionate about this type of music. These tracks are like a caress to the soul, and each time I listen I feel weightless and carefree - I know you will too.

This playlist includes music from Bebel Gilberto, Gaelle, Aim, Bliss, Telepopmusik, Bittersweet, Blue Six, Her Majesty’s Sound, and Fertile Ground.

Hit play and enjoy.

Millennial Entrepreneur: An Interview with Sable B. of Fly & Fierce Boutique



I need more than ten fingers to count the reasons why I love and admire teacher-turned-online boutique owner Sable. Chief among them? Her down-to-earth nature and quirky sense of humor; her need to celebrate and uplift women, and her quest for privacy in an over shared world.

I’m also inspired by the sheer creativity, attention to detail, and work ethic Sable puts into every aspect of Fly & Fierce Boutique - from the vintage one-of-a-kind pieces she sells to how she's ingeniously connected with brands and bloggers (both of which helped elevate her in the industry).

While going from teacher to boutique owner is anything but a traditional career progression, Sable’s education and experiences taught her to think analytically, do her research and communicate effectively–three skills necessary when starting a business of any kind.

Today, Sable shares her mission, how she found her footing, and what it really takes to own your own business.

Dream, Believe, Receive: My Vision Board


Although this year didn’t get off to such a great start, I’ve been feeling incredibly inspired these past couple of weeks. In celebration of my recent positive mood, I thought I’d share what I consider to be my short-term goals and desires:


  1. I want to wake up each day and meditate. I love starting the day refreshed, centered and in-touch with my spiritual side! 
  2. When you eat well, you feel well.  More fresh juices and organic eats for me
  3. Wanderlust: I’ve been craving a vacation to Hawaii for the longest. Is this not the most breathtaking view you have ever seen?
  4. Yes indeed! I’m calling financial prosperity and overflowing abundance into my life.
  5. I’m striving to maintain a positive attitude and outlook each and everyday. I also want to surround myself with positive, like-minded people.
  6. Starting a business – more on that soon!
  7. Seeing the Eiffel Tower is a must!
  8. I just know I have a book in me! I’d love to type it out on a typewriter like this one.

I’d love to see your virtual dream/vision board. Post a comment with a link to yours!

With Gratitude,
Mariah
