“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”



Hi, I’m Shanti, a lifestyle writer, creative, business strategist, and entrepreneur.

Somewhere between dancing to the beat of my own drum and figuring out this thing called adulting I took the leap in 2013 and created this digital space to interweave the ins and outs of navigating life for women like me who were looking for work-life balance.

I’m passionate about using life lessons to create a space where women can be encouraged and empowered as they evolve. In addition to here, you can find a bit of my digital footprint on Six Brown Chicks, Slay Culture, and Regal Realness.

Originally hailing from Southern California, I moved to Atlanta to continue growing, connecting, and nurturing other women to live their best life unapologetically.

When not being a #GirlBoss you can find me engulfed in a juicy book, journaling, curating lifestyle content and poetry, dabbling a little in the brunch scene, indulging in live music and spoken word. or pouring positive energy into the pregnancy loss community.

Thanks for stopping by! I welcome your comments and suggestions for posts you would like to read about! I also welcome brands/businesses that would like to potentially collaborate.


I love connecting and exploring new opportunities with other writers, brands, and/or organizations. Whether it’s collaborating on a project, curating sponsored content, reviewing products/services, hosting an event/workshop or serving as a panelist; I’d love to share my expertise in finding balance and simplifying your life/business. Does this sound like something you’re looking for? If so, let’s connect
