NextGen x Stories That Inspire x Pencils of Promise

Adam Braun & IWhat else to do on a Wednesday around 7PM but attend an event hosted by The Holocaust Memorial Center and NEXTGen Detroit  – Adam Braun says alternatively We could have been eating snacks and sitting on the couch … But those who are people of integrity have chosen to delay the couch potato time a bit to attend the First Annual Stories That Inspire event. 

Maybe you’ve heard of Scooter Braun – Adams brother who manages and discovered Justin Beiber – but let me tell you … Adam holds his own.  Inspired by a backpacking trip around third world countries, Adam founded Pencils of Promise.  He took a break from his job at Bain Management & Consulting to feel a sense of purpose in life and travel the globe. Upon interacting with a cute little beggar boy – Adam asked him if you could have anything in the world what would it be?  The boy responded  a pencil.  This struck Adam hard as he realized this boy has never had any formal education, doesn’t have a school to attend and will probably never be exposed to education in the same way he was.  Adam wanted to feel a sense of purpose in this world and found it in the answer of this one kid.

Pencils of Promise, also known as PoP for short, is a non-profit organization that builds schools and increases educational opportunities in the developing world. Pencils of Promise was founded by Adam Braun in October 2008.  PoP is guided by our revolutionary “for-purpose” approach. Blending the head of a for-profit business with the heart of a humanitarian nonprofit, we rigorously measure the return on investment of every donor dollar we spend. Joy and passion are great, but results are what we’re all about.

With over 300+ School in 4 countries – their model has proven to be a success.   If you’d like to learn more info check out the website https://pencilsofpromise.org/about/

Adam’s mentioned a quote that resonated with me – this is a bit paraphrased but along the lines of  ” its better to listen intently rather than talk immensely ” – I am someone who typically has a lot to say and tend to blabber with details on details in my storytelling.  Some people like to hear all the details, others really prefer not to & cut me off or ask for a shortened version.

I do have a newer friend in my life who is always listening intently and its taught me that you don’t really need to share every detail or story every time you interact with someone. Sometimes living a little mystery can make the conversation more engaging.  But I do have to say when this one friend and I chat its rather fun !!

To demonstrate this Adam shared this video 

 Even I gotta say – this French Bulldog is pretty cute !

The photo on the right is with the Fabulous Host of the Evening Jacob Smith – my homie from the West Maple Elementary School Days – and Hilary “Hildawg” Gorosh !  It is the BEST to catch up with friends & be inspired all at the same time !

New on the Reading is Fundamental List :  Adam Brauns’ ” The Promise of  A Pencil ”

@HelloAnnArbor x Farmer’s Market Haul

UGHHHH the thing I look forward to the most on Humpdaze is going to the Kerrytown Farmer’s Market – literally whatever city I may live in next must have a legitimate Farmer’s Market with the freshest flowers and local dank goods. If you would like to follow me on SnapChat @Lshawtay you’ll get a walking tour of me at the Market. On my walk there this week I noticed this lovely Robot engraved on the sidewalk – I wish there was more casual art like this around Street Botthe town. I’d like to call him

If you happened to follow my story yesterday you would have first spotted it there – that is of course if you haven’t stumbled upon it yet in person – it is also live on my Instagram @Lshawtayy

@Argus Farm Stop

I live week to week by the scent of these incredible Oriental Lily’s – they literally will last an entire week and then some ! $3 per stem I feel like it’s a steel deal ! The scent fills my apartment and brings a smile to my fayce everytime I walk in the door. Sometimes i’ll sleep on the couch just to get a better aroma – I guess it may be easier to bring the vase into my room but I literally did not think of that until just now.

Big fan of the Roos Roast Cold Brew Coffee , a locally brewed treat that’s a pricey $4 per cup but pretty worth it. Shopping Haul

Shopping Haul ! These are the BEST items  – outside of the flowers – that I got yesterday.  These Rosemary & Sea Salt Gluten Free by the Taste like OMG you’ve never had anything so amazing with out gluten ! Today I splurged for the large box for $10 – otherwise they come in smaller sizes for $3.50 – they’re also sold at Lab Coffee & the Argus Farm Stop.

The White Lotus Farm has quickly become my go-to booth at the Kerrytown Farmer’s Market.  If there could only be one butter left on earth it should be their Herb Butter with Taragon. You know this is the purest butter that can grace your lips!

Go on & get after it !

OOTD : Farmer’s Market Uniform June 10 Twenty Fifteen

Shoe Cam#1307daily features the outfit of the day

Step into the morning light ! Wednesday Mornings I’m UP & atta um’ to get to the Kerrytown Farmer’s Market in Ann Arbor. Even though the market starts at about 7 AM I don’t aim to be the first one there. Spotted here I’m rockin’ my new Aldo Flatforms which compliment the Essie Bikini So Teeny toe polish. I’m really into the hashtags #FromWhereIStand & #FromWhereIStood – look for a feature on my @Tr3ndey Instagram account.

Creepin’ in the shot the bottom of my BoyFriend Jeans by JBRAND  – this was the first time that I let the bottom go unrolled.

Full View ShotSunnies On Fleek   The most classic basic outfit for spring time is this – perfect for work or headin’ to the Farmer’s Market.  A tight black basic T Shirt is one of the most essential items you need in your closet.   I’m kinda digging the unrolled look for the Jbrand Boyfriend Jeans !  This outfit requires little thought and looks sharp.

Wouldn’t leave home with out my dope new Dior shades !  Here’s an up close and personal shot of me in the sunnies from @Lshawtayy on Instagram

Keep it Klassy Ya’ll

@HelloAnnArbor x @AnnArbor_Eats x #Kerrytown

Honest Co. One of my favorite things about living in Ann Arbor, Michigan is the Historic District of Kerrytown. Kerrytown is home to Zingerman’s!  You may have heard about the famous sandwich shop/ deli  located at 422 Detroit Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48104.  It’s about a causal 10 minute walk to Kerrytown from where I currently live. I always bring my Re-Usable Honest Co. Canvas Tote in case I want to pick up some goodies from Zingerman’s or other shops near by! I am not the most eco-friendly gal but one of my best friends works at an Organic Baby Store in NYC and always hooks it up with these awesome bags !

Check out my instagram posts of two yummy sandwiches from Zingerman’s.

Month of May Special Sandwich : Fried Chicken Breast, Lettuce, Spicy Pickles, Pimento Cheese

TNT Cowboy Ruben : Hand Pulled Bbq Brisket without the Coleslaw and melted Provolone Cheese

Here is an inside look of @AnnArbor_eats Your Source for the BEST eats in Ann Arbor !

@HelloAnnArbor x @AnnArbor_Eats x Neopapalis

Bianca Pizza Neopapalis the Pizza King on the block of 500 E.William which you can also call ahead and place your order for pick up or you can dine in. I prefer to dine in most of the time because they have friendly staff, great seating options for big or small parties, and a bar area with TVs and local microbrew beers!

What to order? The Bianca Pizza @ Neopapalis is just simply incredible ! I am not typically a Pizza Person but this Pizza is out of this world ! The Bianca Pizza base is made up of Herb-butter base, asiago and mozzarella cheese & honey. That small touch of honey really makes each bite super delicious!  Featured here upon request a crispy crust + artichokes, spinach, jalapenos and FIG.

Be sure to go over and grab a 12” pizza at Neos like … now!

Good day Ann Arbor!

Get UP and Get Movin – leave your blinds open and let that sunny sunshine graze over your covers and into your eyes in the morning. Prop open the window for a fresh breeze and embrace  the day.

Jump outta bed and walk over to the local market to grab fresh eggs to make omelets. Fresh air and fresh food what could be better ?!

Today I’m rocking Nike Pants and a Detroit Tigers tank. Opening day for the Detroit Tigers here in Detroit Michigan will be Monday April 6 @ comerica park.

BBOTD : Know What I Want

This Bumping Beat of The Day graced my ears as I arose this morning. Eyes barely opened and sun shining through the shades … I knew today was going to be a sunny positive day! Muchas Gracias to Kali Uchis for singing this Eargasm.

“I know what I want ”   a life filled with running into Hello Kitty and driving Red Hot Ferrari’s !

Mondaze in Ann Arbor, Michigan

A big part of Mondaze is Motivation, Mindfulness, & maintaining a Meatless diet

#TGIM Thank G-d It’s Monday – well yesterday was the first time i ever came across the abrev #TGIM – very bizarre but i went with the notion and continued to follow through with my version of Mondaze.

Mindful Monday was a sweet sweet success yesterday. Waking up on Monday Mornings I turn quickly to “snooze” which I think could be re branded as a time dedicated to meditation. I do not use my “snooze” to just roll my eyes back into my head & dream land but a moment of clarity.
Meditation Music makes the end of your day a sweet send off

Music of the day : Thomas Jack Vol 4 Tropical House

Getting super pumped up to go see him preform live in Chicago in February at The Mid. If you want to join me purchase your tickets here

Signing up for not one but TWO classes at The Barre Code in Ann Arbor : they have two fabulously convenient locations on is right downtown Ann Arbor on E Liberty between Maynard St & Thompson Street and the second is off Plymouth Road. The owner of The Barre Code Adri is a honey and i love supporting local startups & women ! #Girlpower – you don’t see too many men around The Barre Code but don’t let that stop ya felllas !

    Meatless Diet

Within the first thirty minutes of being awake and up & moving I like to have a piece of fruit to rev up my metabolism. Typically a Granny Smith Green Apple or Bartlett Pear.

Driving to Ann Arbor and getting off at Main Street I can’t help myself but stop into Mighty Good Coffee

Moving forward to lunch I walked over to my new go-to loving lunch spot Salads Up for a Mix It Up Salad filled with edamame, chic peas, cucumbers , red peppers, avocado , olives and broccoli with a spicy shiracha dressing! Dank.

Lady J ( maybe you remember her from the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Videos ) whipped me up some mouth watering orgasmic roasted Brussels sprouts for dinner along with our favorite breakfast for dinner omelet while i took on my Mondaze Motion hard.

Mondaze are the perfect day to take your tasks head on >>>> this weeks mondaze motion was to figure out that darn crock pot that is taking up so much space in our kitchen ! One of my new favorite social networking sites Yummly.Com allows amateur and professional chefs alike share recipes in a YUMMY way ! Check out my Yummly Collection of #1307Daily Recipes . FRENCH ONION SOUP you are my b*tch and i’m making you mine ! tipping this off was to caramelize onions! wpid-snapchat-3594131855462917539.jpg

Follow along to hear more about how my #1307Daily activity of the week goes down !

#TCOY – take care of yourself

Keep Mindful and keep it Up !
