SINGER/SONGWRITER ALEX VAUGHN'S AV + FRIENDS SEND OFF PARTY

When working towards making Dreams And Real Life Align, every move (major and minor) is a part of discovering and building on the bigger purpose. We don't always notice as it's happening and we may go through rough patches of situations that make us doubt the process, but like R&B Singer/Songwriter Alex Vaughn says in her song, "Blessings": Anything you want is waiting all for you, but you just gotta breathe to receive all the blessings.

#HEYWECOLLAB ART SERIES BY @DINAFAIRYCAKE + @HEYSHEDRAWS

Magic is made when we collaborate. There's no limit to what we can accomplish through inspiration and creativity, especially when we join forces. Two artists bring this truth to light with a social media-based collaborative art series, #HeyWeCollab. Inspired by each other's art and the work of other creative women, Dina Baez + Nikki Moon linked up to create a #WCW series in which they translate their inspiration from music and feminist values into paintings. Thus far, this project has resulted in unique pieces of artwork reflecting creative women such as Kehlani, SZA, Cardi B and Willow Smith. With #HeyWeCollab Nikki + Dina each create a painting in their own style.

HOW CREATING ART JOURNALS HELPED ME COPE WITH ANXIETY

Ever since high school, I felt there was something about me that was different from my classmates. I didn’t know what it was or how to explain it, but I knew it was something because I would become physically sick at the thought of spending another day in school, being around so many people at once... There were times where I felt suffocated in my surroundings. It eventually got so bad that I was sent to the hospital during my freshman year of college. I didn’t understand why I was feeling this way until that very moment I was laying in my hospital bed; that moment explained it all: I had anxiety.
