This is a story of two down-to-earth badass women who came together to inspire beautiful ladies (like YOU) to be the best damn version of themselves. After much trial and error in life, we’ve found the right balance to being more successful, calmer, happier, and healthier people and we want to help others find that balance too. We hope to empower women and young girls around the world from all walks of life and experiences.
Between the two of us, we have been through some sh*t. So this won’t be all unicorns, fairy tales and fake smiles – we keep it real. There will be contemplation, laughs, tears, self-realization and joy, with a sprinkling of taboo topics along the way. We are who we are because of the taboo and difficult situations we have faced in our own lives. These experiences are what shaped us into strong, more open-minded and relatable women who can better understand other ladies stories with no judgement or criticism.
We were lucky enough to meet each other in a local bar (remember, a happy life is all about balance and those hypothetical ‘cupcakes’ ;-*) back in August 2016. Since meeting, our bond has made us inseparable. We motivate and encourage one another, celebrate each other’s successes, and are there for each other at our lowest. With support (since queen’s fix each other’s crowns, ladies) we have found the way to our happiest and best versions of ourselves. As we continue on our own journey of personal growth, self love, and discovery, we have a passion and drive to help others do the same. We are excited to share our gift of empowerment and healing through love, health, positive psychology, and, yes, sweets & booze with you! So, come join our tribe bitches! We’re the new sexy, chic self-help blog!
I am the girl who had her whole life figured out. I had everything planned according to the timeline that I at the naive, inexperienced and YOUNG age of 18 set for my life. I had planned to become an elementary school teacher and start teaching right after college. I did. I planned to have a huge, fancy wedding and get married in my early 20s to my highschool sweetheart. I did. I planned to build my dream house to move into with my new husband, right after my wedding and get to host all of our big family holiday celebrations. I did. I really thought I had my shit together. I did not.
Just a little life tip ladies: DON’T plan your life! It will NEVER turn out the way you planned–and even if everything you had planned does happen to workout the way you planned, in the end, you’ll find that they won’t be what you wanted anyway.

In the meantime: Enjoy life, live in the moment and FOR the moment! Don’t waste away your life constantly focused on the destination, be happy and enjoy the journey getting there :-*
My independent and sassy personality was certainly inherited from day one. My mother comes from a long line of tough women and my father grew up in a humble household of 12. Group my complex genetic make-up, upbringing, and taboo life experiences and there’s Megan Ann!. From a young age, I always felt that I had this acute consciousness of reality and presence; always thinking, observing, and analyzing the world around me. I️ would often think about what life is, and the concept scared the hell out of my 10-year-old self. “I have this one life. I have to make it big. That’s all there is to it”, I would tell myself. I didn’t quite know what ‘big’ was (although an actress and singer was always at the top of my list), but I wanted to be a part of something significant. This mindset, although wise of a young girl, eventually created a dark entangled web of dysfunction throughout my life.
Intense self-reflection and new life experiences led me on the path to discovery of happiness, passion and meaning. The overall theme of my distress points to a woman of positivity and empathy who has always been geared to serve and spread love & wisdom through her experiences. I’ve learned that life doesn’t throw you challenges you can’t handle and I am a firm believer that everything in life happens for a reason. Your dysfunction and suffering may just be the B.S. that kicks you in the ass and awakens your true passion/purpose/happiness. This is how Mind, Body & Cupcakes came alive and I am so grateful to share my story with you.
