Don’t Be a Fool, Be a Wildcard

Don’t Be a Fool, Be a Wildcard

In the game of cards, it’s the joker.

In the game of sports, it’s the underdog.

And in the game of life, it’s someone who plays by their own rules.

Wildcards are confident  characters that take risky chances, believing the odds are in their favor. They are unpredictable, untamed, and maybe even a little unsettled.

But you know what?

Luck Of The Mermaid: How to Manifest Good Fortune

Luck Of The Mermaid: How to Manifest Good Fortune

It doesn’t matter if it’s juicy tarot card readings, or a fortune cookie from Panda Express. I’m small kine obsessed with knowing what the future holds, so are you surprised at the fact I’m going to tell you a casual story about my trip to the fortune-teller?

It was six months ago, at a point in my life where I began to feel a little lost and confused.

I was looking for answers to some questions I couldn’t quite put my finger fin on, so I figured who better to turn to than a Psychic?! And if her creepy collection of porcelain gnomes was any indication, this lady was the real deal.

Mermaid Munchies: Seaweed Spaghetti

Mermaid Munchies: Seaweed Spaghetti

Ever since I was a mini mermaid, I’ve had a tiny obsession with spaghetti.

No joke, it was the dinner of choice for all my childhood birthday parties. Every year I celebrated at The Spaghetti Factory slurpin’ up all that meaty goodness and getting drunk off Shirley Temples.

Pasta makes my mini mermaid heart happy, but at the same time, my adulting metabolism is saying, “Come on Gennah, let’s eat more veggies.” Well, thanks to my new favorite kitchen gadget, I’ve been able to feed my soul with the comfort of spaghetti, and refuel my body with the benefits of greens.

Feast your hungry eyes on the #foodporn that is Seaweed Spaghetti.

Mermaid of the Month: Shayla Hoheisel

With the return of The Running Mermaid, comes the return of my favorite segment, Mermaid of the Month.

Whether they are dedicating their lives to protecting our environment, or encouraging others to make health and fitness a main priority. I love sharing the stories of ambitious women living life on their own terms, because I truly believes it inspires us all to get out there and do the damn thing!

Case in point, my girl Shayla from Living on a One Way.

13.1 Reasons to Date a Runner

13.1 Reasons to Date a Runner

With as much as I would love to be a yogi, busting out headstands like it’s NBD, or a rad surfer that shreds waves like a pro. The reality is, I’m a marathon junkie who conquers finish line after self-accomplishing finish line like a true badass.

Seriously, nothing gets me more hot and bothered than running, however not very many people can “get off” on a 13.1 (let alone 26.2) mile race. I get it, the whole marathon thing is kind of intimidating, which I like to think is why I’ve been single for as long as I’ve been a runner.

I mean, I guess it could also be the stank-ness that fills the air after I return home from a run, or possibly the fact that I’m ALWAYS eating (literally, always).

Badass Beats: Surf City Edition

Badass Beats: Surf City Edition

Between having my mom as a roommate and saying goodbye to my year round tan, transition from mermaid to mainlander has been a far cry from your typical “happily ever after.”

I’m not going to lie, I slipped into a low-key depression after letting go of life in Hawaii. I mean think about it, people dread facing the real world after spending a week away in paradise. Now imagine coming back to “reality” after a casual 4 year vay-cay?!

My world lost a bit of magic when I moved back to California, so naturally, I couldn’t help but feel I lost a little bit of magic in myself.
