I recently had the opportunity to partner with Femme Luxe and received these two gorgeous pieces that I can’t wait to rock in the summer months or Vegas… whatever comes first.

The white dress I’m in above is the White One Shoulder Bardot Mini Dress and the smallest size I could order was 6 / White. I think it’s in European sizes maybe? In the U.S. I’m a Size 2 or 3, but every dress and brand is different.

Find it here.

This HOT piece of fire one-piece is the Red Belted One Shoulder Jumpsuit
Evelyn – , again in a size 6 / Red and I can’t wait to wear it in Vegas or to an event I can rock it in.

Find it here.

girl, you got it goin’ on… let’s amp it up today

I couldn’t wait any longer to drop these wisdom pearls into your lovely brain today.

I dropped my sweet angel face off at pre-school, (no…  I wasn’t kicking my heels in the air as I walked home… by myself!!) and had this instant intuitive hit that I needed to share with you.

You can’t play small anymore.

You can’t not do the thing your heart is telling you to for anymore.

Stop talking yourself out of making a choice that will change everything.

Book the ticket.

Take the class.

Stop looking at the recipe and make the damn thing.

Drink the water.

Lace up your shoes and hit the ground speed walking.

Wake up the first time the alarm goes off.

Dance like a crazy person… like I did to Beyonce this morning while my toddler boogied along with me.

Go outside.

Sit down and read the book.

Close your computer.

Get the juicer out.

Eat a banana and stop worrying about all the sugar.

For god’s sake…. put your life in motion girlfriend!

Here’s what happened to me when I decided to go for it…

  • I became a 5 time sold out retreat leader… (6th coming up April 2020 in California!)
  • I went from charging $150 an hour to more than $5,000 for 6 sessions (rates increase every year because my value continues to go up!)
  • I went on two retreats last year… for myself! (retreat leaders need to be a participant… it’s vital to filling up the tank)
  • I stopped having auto immune symptoms because I followed through and trusted the process (no more thinking I knew better than  a trained Chinese herbalist!)
  • I stopped seeking and started receiving (now I’m repeatedly asked to speak at events, go on radio interviews and more!)
  • My confidence to put together outfits that fit my body, my style and my personality started surfacing and girlfriend, I feel damn good at 35!

But if I never went for it, like full 100% in, I’d be waking up with extreme fatigue wishing I knew what to do with my life, continuing to go from job to job, training to training.

Not this girl and not you either.

Put yourself first.

I promise you, it’s life changing.

Day 8,9 and 10 of 10 Day Auto Immune/Weight Loss Challenge

Wow! Here’s what I’ve learned about myself: I cannot write consistently for 10 days straight! I finished the challenge in terms of eating more real food, juicing every day and exercising, but tack on journaling and I fell short!

I’d like to blame so many things….. lack of sleep due to toddler wake ups, not wanting to type and instead of present to my kid, etc. All the bullshit excuses for not completing something.

My results: Lost 4 pounds, recorded a podcast episode about it and decided that instead of finishing this blog journal, the podcast would be sufficient, but HEY it was another excuse!

Who knew that the mindset queen would have her own hiccups?

This happened the last time I did a 30 day yoga challenge and a 3 day juice fast. I ended up hating yoga, took a break and only made it one day into my juice fast! HA! I used to be such an extremist, but in my older age 😉 I’ve softened and I don’t like extremes anymore. I’d rather live as balanced and healthy as I can without missing out on the good stuff….and life… and real moments.

I also learned that when I have food prepped and ready to grab and heat or grab n’ go I’m like a super human.

OH and protein bars and me don’t like each other. I was hooked on macro bars for years, but haven’t touched one in a few weeks and I don’t think I like them anymore. I’d rather wake up, drink a juice, eat a banana and figure it out for the rest of the day!

Plus, waking up to juice is like an instant trip to the bathroom. Celery runs through you girl, let me tell you…

I’ve been loving celery, lemon, apple and ginger juices freshly made by me or my hubs, who’s also started to love juicing.

It’s contagious.

When you see people glowing and feeling good, you can’t help but wonder what they do!

So that plus…

homemade smoothie bowls, jasmine rice and chicken with avocado and basil, gluten and dairy free grilled cheese sandwiches, cucumbers and hummus or turkey sausage and eggs or avocado toast or a delicious smoothie packed with berries, dates, spinach, coconut milk and hemp seeds… this is what dreams are made of…

Also – cravings change based on weather, season, that time of the month, etc.

Thanks for being a part of the challenge!

Lovin’ Life,
