  • Skin Journey Part 2 - 29 Oct 2020
    My story has been one of “both and”. It has been both hard and joyful; painful and beautiful; devastating and rewarding.
  • Skin Journey Part 1 - 20 Oct 2020
    There is balance for me. I must allow myself to feel but not allow my view of myself to shape, drive, and control me.
  • My Relationship with Food - 08 Sep 2020
    So where am I now? To be honest I am still figuring it out. There are times I do not want to eat dessert because the voice of shame comes back because I am fearful about causing gut issues. Finding balance when it comes to food is not easy and is a daily practice.
  • Re-Direction - 01 Sep 2020
    Do you ever hit Friday just grateful you made it through the week? To be honest, last week was one of those weeks. It seemed like everything planned changed to a no. Everything I thought I had under control went sideways.
  • Fight or Flight - 11 Aug 2020
    Have you ever heard of the term “fight or flight”? It is known as the stress response. It activates when stressed or in danger to keep us from harm. When fired in a dangerous situation, it helps us survive to live another day. Unfortunately, this response does not just happen if you are running from a tiger.
  • Living in Uncertain Times - 04 Aug 2020
    I do not know about you but lately my heart, soul, and honestly body feels heavy. The uncertainty we are living in takes a toll on me. I have allowed myself to live in fear, to accept it as true, and allow it to seep into almost every aspect of my life. specific skin.
  • Skin Care Reboot - 14 Jul 2020
    I would highly recommend consulting with a dermatologist to build out a tailored approach for your specific skin. For me, the tailored approach by the dermatologist means that I no longer buy a host of products (R&F, Ulta, BeautyCounter, etc) thus saving money and ultimately have better results for my specific skin.
  • Differences Between Refined vs. Natural Sugar - 07 Jul 2020
    Some types of natural sugar include raw honey, pure maple syrup, blackstrap molasses, and coconut sugar. The main difference is these occur in their natural form (not refined or processed) and have some beneficial health properties. For example, honey contains high vitamin and mineral contents as well as antimicrobial benefits, which is why it has been known as a healing food for quite some time.

  • Letting Go Series (Resounding Yes) - 19 May 2020
    Now, most of us are at home and busyness ground to a complete halt. We are spending more time with our families, in the kitchen and maybe even in our yards. Although we are in a hard and challenging season, time is a new gift. Time creates opportunity to enjoy your house, the outdoors, and time with your family. All of this made me realize I need to carry over some of this time when life starts going again.
  • Letting Go Series (Exercise for Weightloss) - 12 May 2020
    This year I have found the important of exercise for my health, both physically and mentally. It is easy to feel let down after working hard at the gym (or in this case my garage) and not seeing the desired results. Exercise produces results beyond what we can see. Regular exercise results in profound positive impacts on depression, anxiety, ADHD, stress and can improve memory, boost overall mood and much more. For me, regular exercise gives a sense of wellbeing. I have more energy, more confidence, I sleep better at night and overall, and I just feel better about myself and life.
  • Letting Go Series (Living Minimally) - 05 May 2020
    No one ever looks back on their life thankful for their stuff or the things they bought. I want to make sure that I am able to passionately pursue my hobbies and desires to the fullest. For us, it means removing the things we do not use and practice mindfulness when we purchase something. It is about quality not quantity.
  • Letting Go Series (I Am Enough) - 28 Apr 2020
    Circumstances change. They always will. Do I put my worth in my circumstances? In what I am doing today? In what I look like today? If I did, it would be fleeting. I would not be setting myself up for success but rather disappoint and failure because life is ever changing.
  • Letting Go (Series) - 21 Apr 2020
    There is beauty even in this season. Part of the beauty is the gift of time. I want to use this time to look deeper into my soul, spirit and heart. I want to actively be working towards the best version of myself. I desire to put habits into practice to carry over into all seasons.

  • Cleanliness - 07 Apr 2020
    As we are all home more, this is an exceptional opportunity for us to spend some time deep cleaning and organizing the clutter. There is a lot in our lives we cannot control but we can control the cleanliness of our homes.
  • Anxiety - 31 Mar 2020
    Recently, my anxiety felt more crippling. I have struggled with anxiety since high school. Through the years and through many doctors, I learned about “Candida” which is a yeast overgrowth in my gut.
  • Prioritize Sleep - 17 Mar 2020
    One of the best ways is improve overall well-being stems from good sleep. I know everyone is not in a season where prioritizing sleep is an option (Any moms out there?) but if you are, it is crucial for your immune system.
  • Intermittent Fasting - 10 Mar 2020
    Have you heard of intermittent fasting? I thought it would be a pertinent topic to touch on since it is popular now. I personally participated in intermittent fasting for the last couple of years and still regularly partake.
  • Exercise and Movement - 03 Mar 2020
    There are a host of benefits to regular physical activity- better sleep, boosting mood, increased energy and sex drive, combating health conditions and diseases (metabolic syndrome, anxiety, high blood pressure, depression etc.), and helping to regulate weight.
