What does it mean to be a bombshell?

If you look it up in the dictionary, you’ll find things like: (n) someone having a sudden & sensational effect.

or (n) someone who is stunning, vibrant, daring and completely captivating

or (n) someone who makes undeniable & long-lasting impact

I created the Bombshell Spotlight series as a way to introduce you to people who truly are bombshells… and to allow you to experience their presence, hear them speak about their message and to offer a bit of their wisdom.

Today, I’m oh-so excited to introduce you to Tolly Moseley. One of my favorite people in the whole world and a total bombshell!

Psst. if the picture above wasn’t a big enough clue, this episode of Bombshell Spotlight is pretty special indeed!



Tolly Moseley is a writer and aerialist based in Austin, Texas, which means that half of her life is spent flying through the air {yes, really!}, and the other half hunched over a computer. As a writer, her work has appeared on Salon, The Atlantic, and on-stage with the touring national show “Mortified.” She is also a regular arts and culture writer for her local newspaper, The Austin American-Statesman, and co-host of their weekly culture podcast, “Statesman Shots.” As an aerialist, she is a company member of Rapt Aerial Dance, and has opened for national acts such as Willie Nelson. When she’s not writing or flying, she’s playing with her brand new baby and / or not-so-new husband, or telling stories on her blog,

What I love love love about this woman is how she has unabashedly created a most beautiful life that combines everything that she’s ever wanted to do and be.

The cherry on top? Tolly is so generously sharing her behind-the-scenes with us today. Click play, bombshell. You’re in for a treat.

Inspired? Yes, me too!
