Catch Me on Badass + Living

5 Apr


While I’m no longer active on this site, due to various commitments that make it impossible right now for me to keep to a regular posting schedule, I wanted to let you know that I’m telling my “Rome story” in a series of posts on a brand-new site called Badass + Living.

Badass has a Rome connection. I met its founder, the fabulous Brenda Della Casa, in a serendipitous evening several years back. We hit it off like soul sisters, kept in touch and grew our friendship across the pond, and I am honored to have been asked to join in her new project as part of its launch.

In my initial posts as a contributor on the site, I’ll be going through my journey to life in Rome, which began [gasp] 15 years ago, when I was in my early 20s. There will be plenty of practical tips, wise reflections, and the clumsy humor in which I excel.

Intrigued? You can catch my first post here:

And, for more info. on Brenda’s ambitious new project, keep reading.

Badass + Living is an online magazine for independent, empowered women who find joy in empowering, cheering and supporting other women. Founded on the concept of collaboration over competition, we believe in the beauty of women working together to promote brands, reach goals and celebrate individuality while sharing wisdom, worries, successes and lessons.

The Badass woman is smart, savvy, ambitious, stylish, philanthropic, inspired and totally dedicated to living her best life as her best self. She’s curious, interested and interesting, and she values herself, her friends, her loved ones and her life. She’s a go-getter who gives back. She’s got big dreams, goals, vision (and perhaps a vision board) and she has a fire inside of her that she’s looking to ignite. Best of all, she believes in the Italian Proverb that reminds us that “a candle never loses light by lighting another candle.”

She values a healthy, balanced lifestyle (mentally, physically, spiritually) but still indulges her vices every once in a while (delicious cocktails, a shopping spree, a gorgeous man/woman, or a fabulous dessert). She enjoys the company of other women and has a very good sense of who she is and wants to become. She’s coming to the website for inspiration, education, aspiration and support, and it’s our mission to provide this for her on a daily basis.

We would like to welcome you to our community. Please visit our site and join us on our journey (and contribute to the conversation!)  You may also find us on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.
