Ever since I met celebrity chef, food writer and TV host, Candice Kumai a few months ago at international makeup artist and Green Beauty Team Founder, Kristen Arnett’s birthday party, I’ve been kind of obsessed! Candice truly inspires and empowers others as the quintessential example of living a healthy lifestyle for the mind, body and spirit.
A few weeks ago, I was feeling restless for no reason in particular. A gut feeling that I was not as connected with myself as I wanted to be swept over me. Call it divine intervention, connectedness or just sheer luck but within minutes of feeling that way, a dear friend messaged me to invite me to the farm he is creating and cultivating, to see what he was up to.

One of the best questions I’m constantly asked is what I am most grateful for. For me being grateful is about an experience at a particular place in time…whereas I try to live in gratitude which is really a lifestyle choice. I’m eternally blessed and so many beautiful things come into my life on a daily basis.
