I'm so glad you're here.

I'm Barbie.  I woke up in September 13, 2015 with Bell's Palsy on the left side of my face.  I have been through a lot, learned a lot and shared a lot.I like to talk.  I am open, real and love to make people laugh.  I started this blog to be a resource for those who are going through the incredibly hard journey after suffering from Bell's.


If that is you - you are not alone.  And you will be ok.  This community is here to help you - let's talk.

More about me

I am a writer, speaker, event director and mom.  Being on stage lights me up. I love white orchids, fresh air, and making people laugh. I care deeply about making you feel that you are not alone in this game. 

I am loud about learning self care, boundaries, and limits from my sassy point of view.

There is nothing in this Universe that will knock you down quicker than trying to be all the things to all the people all of the times. You are a strong amazing human, but you are not a Unicorn in an armour.  GET REAL.

I am a writer, speaker, Bells Palsy survivor, mompreneur and just in general - an extremely sensitive human stepping into my light.  The Universe has literally knocked me over - SEVERAL times.  
I'm not an expert in any way.  I am just me - talking in my words - to you.  I have done the things and been the versions of myself I thought I was "supposed" to be.  I have screwed up A LOT and have been hurt a LOT.  But I have also learned a lot, loved a lot and laughed a lot.  Let's make something great together. 


Come find me on Clubhouse.


I think Clubhouse is GREAT!  I will be hosting on a regular basis so we can get together and talk about all the things Xo.
