Welcome to my life. My name is Katrice L. Mines and I'm the editor of Atlanta Tribune: The Magazine by day and blogger of My Vicarious Life in my downtime.

My Vicarious Life is a lifestyle blog that explores style, beauty, travel and wellness, and that endeavors to inspire. What you're reading is actually the expression of what I enjoy most in life. MVL is where I share my zeal for spectacular places to travel, self-care and everything beauty ... I'm obsessed with finding the perfect products for my hair, the perfect lip gloss and perfect balance to my life. I realize that there is no perfect balance, but I try. MVL is ultimately the best of life, one beautiful moment at a time.

I love to inspire others to pursue their best lives. As a writer and woman of the world, my interest in black women's wellness has been the compelling force behind many of my personal and pursuits over the years. In 2004, I founded Inspiring Excellence, an enrichment program for African-American adolescent girls in Ohio that I ran for two years. I am passionate about affirming people and bringing out the best in those around me -- virtually and in person. I hope that something you read here is not only useful but leaves you feeling increased.
