Inspiration Friday!

Inspiration Friday!

Hello  everybody! I’m so happy to be here and part of this wonderful community of creative people, friends, well wishers and the list goes on and on, He he he!  I’m one of those quirky women so get used to it! Anyway today is what I like to call “Inspiration Friday” where I invite everyone to be inspired, empowered and activated to be all that YOU (in my case, ME) to be; after all what ever our issues as citizens of this earth, we are all special and capable of doing something truly good for our world and our environment.

Soon you’ll come to know that when I speak about getting “fit and fabulous” I’m not just talking about the part of you that people “see”, I’m talking about being fit physically, mentally, as well as spiritually! Come on let’s face it, if you’re a train wreck on the inside but look like you’re rocking fabulous, that would be the REAL tragedy. After all, how do you think you’re going to get to that place where you’re healthy and whole if you’re a hot mess on the inside??

Make a choice now…

Getting fit is really important to me but more than that is being WHOLE on the inside of me; you can’t see you way clearly or rationally if you’re carrying a ton of unhealthy baggage in addition to an unhealthy weight. My mission on this journey is to get to my envisioned level of physical fitness BUT ALSO internally fit and fabulous; what a joy it will be to YOU all with ME!

Ok enough with the tear jerking moments and let’s take this time to look on the inside of ourselves, be real about what needs fixing and healing AND finally START FULFILLING our potential here on this earth….





All about that skin…

All about that skin…

Time for some skin indulgence, and it all starts right here with some of my favorite goodies! I love, love, love me some LUSH natural cosmetics and no, I’m not letting any of it fall out of my hands, Ha, resistance is futile y’all! But on a more serious note, I’ll always remember my mom’s constant mantra of “take of skin, and it will take care of you”, “what you eat shows up on your face”, yada yada yada…

Turns out mama was right and thank God I listened! Diet, exercise and nutrition make up the foundation for great glowy and healthy skin; so put away the gimmicks and tricks to hide the evidence of poor nutritional habits and start taking care of YOUR HEALTH! *love these exclamation points by the way* Anyway, did I mention the whole thing about diet, exercise and nutrition? Yeah? Ok GOOD!! There is no short cut to lovely skin, and barring such things as hormonal changes, genetics, etc, REMEMBER: YOUR SKIN IS THE LARGEST ORGAN OF YOUR BODY, get it? Ok now let’s move on to the fun stuff.lushvs

I fully admit to being a skincare freak and I’m proud of it so there. The good news is, any one can become a skincare freak by simply educating yourself about your health and nutrition as well as those products that act as nirvana for your particular skin type. Everybody’s skin is different in terms of sensitivities, needs, problem areas, etc.

I Was blessed to have a mom who believed that your skin is a reflection of your internal health and it’s also a “canvas” upon which you express yourself through make up and attitude. So over the years I’ve tried just about every major skincare line and their bargain brands too! I’ve learned to “evolve” on my skincare product choices based on the needs of my skin and the consistency of product integrity. Needless to say, I’ve moved away from major brands that constantly “REFORMULATE” certain products in their skincare lines; it works for them, but most of the time my skin yells “No,No, No”.

I’ve got a long list of favorites but my foundational skincare regime is made of skincare lines that use non synthetic natural products and are NOT constantly changing out formulas! Here’s my go to skincare when I want to “ZEN” out after a long day at work. Not only do these products smell yummy, LUSH is known for their natural ingredients…and on that note, it’s time for my dragon ball bath boom and a cup of my new favorite tea from Teavana; LIFE is GOOD!!!
