Self-Love Hacks: Buy Yourself Flowers! #SorryNotSorry

Happy 2019! Who else is glad — grateful, but glad — that 2018 is so over and behind us?

But forget resolutions and the 12 month goal list that you perfected on beautiful stationary. We all want to achieve our goals, I get that. Two of the topics I am so passionate about is increasing the awareness of mental health and breaking the stigma, as well as addressing the importance of self-care practices and habits.Continue reading “Self-Love Hacks: Buy Yourself Flowers! #SorryNotSorry”

Backstage Beauty: My Rose Gold Hair

There really is nothing quite like a new hair color for a little confidence boost going into a season like Autumn, and this year it’s rose gold.

Rose gold is a happy medium between yellow gold and silver and I love an unconventional and totally functional neutral. Also, I can tell you that it has integrated itself into my life in the form of Starbucks cups, phone cases and accessories, sunglasses – you get it. It’s an obsession and I totally admit it.

Monday Musings: Volume 6

The leaves are changing, the pumpkin spice hype is real, and there is Halloween decor in the dollar section at Target. It’s officially #sweaterweather. Or for everyone else — happy Autumn! With Fashion Week in Paris just beginning today, my birthday month, a new job, and a new perspective on life have all brought so many things into my routine that it’s leaving me at a blank on where to begin for this volume. Volume 5 was all about female empowerment – you can read that one here.

How To Meditate: My Routine & How to Feel (& Give) More LOVE in 7 Days

“Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet.

It’s a way of entering into the quiet that’s already there – buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.” 

― Deepak Chopra

I was just like you once.

I would hear people talk about meditation and how it was this wonderfully soothing and life-changing experience for them and not believe a word they said.Continue reading “How To Meditate: My Routine & How to Feel (& Give) More LOVE in 7 Days”

Monday Musings: Volume 5

1. FALL IN LINE – Christina Aguilera ft Demi Lovato – Jojo Gomez x Kaycee Rice x Tim Milgram

The first time I watched this, my mouth was literally open the entire time. There’s not a whole lot to say about this dance other than it is the epitome and mirror image of what the message of the song is about. Watch and then watch again.

2. CHRISTINE HASSLER – best-selling author, keynote speaker, master coach, podcaster, and ‘human optimization obsessed”

“Today Christine leads seminars and workshops to audiences around the country. She has spoken

to over 100,000 people at colleges, personal growth events, conferences, and corporations.”

 

 

 

You guys know that I am obsessed with podcasts overall, but the immense concept of not just improvement, but optimization. I first listened to Christine talk on episode #156 of The Aubrey Marcus Podcast, which I linked below if you’re curious. The reason why she captivated me so much was the graceful, effortless way which she communicates her story about pain and the beautiful writings she produces. If you check her out, let me know and we can start a book club for one of her books!

3. Christian Dior | Haute Couture Fall Winter 2018/2019 Full Show | Exclusive

 

DIOR always dominates the runways, couture included. From the all-white ceilings to the dress forms hung to mimic an atelier, to the Meghan Markle-like silhouettes and feminine touches…this collections is my favorite to date.
