Molly Venter of Goodnight Moonshine + Concert Ticket Giveaway

I am so excited to have the opportunity to interview Molly Venter of Goodnight Moonshine, a band she and her husband, Eben Pariser, started together. Of course I had heard Molly sing with Red Molly, but Goodnight Moonshine was new to me and it was time to sit down and listen to some inspirational new music.

Living With Models Season 3, Better Then Ever

Inspire Freedom With “Legacy Collection”

I first came across Legacy Collection on Twitter where it caught my eye. When I went to their page and saw the bio I knew I had to know more. Taking something that represents the hardship of imprisonment during South Africa’s Apartheid Era and turning it into something beautiful is what makes this collection of jewelry unique. Robben Island is probably most well-known as the prison where [...]
