I'm an Immigrant. When I Spend Money on Makeup, I'm Paying to Feel Safe.

"My mother and I had disagreements about it. I could see that she rarely used her makeup, reserving it for special occasions or for church. Weeks passed, and she continued to venture into Manhattan barefaced. I panicked and pleaded with her to wear it whenever she encountered white people who determined her life or livelihood, like at work or at the doctor’s office. I asked her to wear a full face of makeup whenever I was not with her to serve as her interpreter, whenever my credit card could not communicate in a demented shorthand that we are human too. But she wouldn’t listen. For my mother, a top shelf is a magical cloud of luxury, a delicious feel-good fantasy."

'When I have to go into spaces where I know I will feel intimidated because of my race, every cream and powder that touches my face is designer.'

Anjali Sachdeva's ALL THE NAMES THEY USED FOR GOD is a Book Riot best book of 2018!

"It's a captivating gem. Each story is its own imaginative microcosm, making for a dazzling collection of wildly different yet equally brilliant tales...Sachdeva has written an unsettling compendium of life’s absurdities that will swim around in your brain like little inky fish long after you’ve finished the last page."

70 of Our Favorite New Yorkers on Their Favorite Places in New York

"The freedom tunnel runs beneath Riverside Park for about 2.5 miles. ...You find remnants of the mole people who used to live in the tunnel. Up until the mid-’90s, there was a community of over 100 people there who’d built shanties, some of which even had electricity. I remember finding really old pages of the New York Times. Old paperback novels. All kind of weird trash. It’s like stuff that gets caught in the teeth of the city."

5 books I loved in 2018

"'21 Lessons for the 21st Century,' by Yuval Noah Harari. I’m a big fan of everything Harari has written, and his latest is no exception. While 'Sapiens' and 'Homo Deus' covered the past and future respectively, this one is all about the present. If 2018 has left you overwhelmed by the state of the world, 21 Lessons offers a helpful framework for processing the news and thinking about the challenges we face."

"In his latest book Yuval turns his enormous intellect to the present and you might be surprised to find out that the world is not as bad as the headlines of today’s newspaper might lead you to believe. Humanity has some really big challenges right now but if we work together and use technology responsibly we should make it through this just fine. The first step is to sit and take some deep breaths."

Congrats Hilary!

I am so honored to be the award winner in the Health: Psychology/Mental Health category of the 2018 Best Book Awards. It is a passion of mine sharing the coolest and most useful mental health and wellness tool, the Change Triangle, I have ever come across. Education in emotions is something all of us need to survive modern life. And our society fails to educate us. Anxiety and many types of depression are symptoms of blocked emotions from which we can heal and recover. It begins with understanding emotions and the Change Triangle. For an easy to understand, story-driven, accessible self-help book, check out the WINNER 😀: "It's Not Always Depression" from Random House http://www.randomhousebooks.com/books/537514/
