Conversation Pieces We Love with Amanda de Cadenet

All throughout August, we’ve been thrilled to feature the lovely Amanda De Cadenet as our Guest Editor.  She’s shared with us her favorite LA hot spots, her definition of wellness, and the best advice she has ever received.  While this multitasking maven is known for being the conduit for honest talk on her hit Lifetime show, what you might not know is that The Conversation has spawned an online hub for connection and self exploration we’re crazy about!  Here are some of our favorite articles from The Conversation’s array of talented contributors!
