A Time to Gather

A Time to Gather

Let’s face it, as we get older, we see more and more that so much of what we do in life is not what we want to do, but what we think others believe we should do, or what we see everyone else doing. We take our cue from the masses when it comes to fashions, hairstyles, the cars we drive, the professions we choose, and the way our homes should look like inside and out. But honestly, the only way we can be truly happy is if we march to the beat of our own drum, and that beat, if you choose to do so, can be a pretty simple one.

Here are a few ideas:

Unplug —
The hustle and bustle of the season can cause us to be hurried and easily overwhelmed. It can be heavily commercialized and we can become bombarded with idealized expectations.  Click to Read more...

My journey is the vehicle of the Message…

My journey is the vehicle of the Message…

This month, breast cancer is highlighted but we ALL have a sorted journey & unspoken struggles.

The over-arching message I hope you receive in telling you my own personal reality, is so much more than me. I hope my honesty (as hard as it is to give) is a ripple effect for everyone to just give love & compassion to everyone!

After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women in the United States. Breast cancer is cancer that forms in the cells of the breasts. Breast cancer can occur in both men and women, but it’s far more common in women.

In light of breast cancer awareness month, I’m going to let you all in on what I generally keep private. This month I felt okay about letting you see what the aftermath of cancer really is for families.

Choosing the right jewelry for You

Choosing the right jewelry for You

Choosing jewelry is all about Your Style, Your Story and Your Memories! 

I believe jewelry is the most personal thing that a woman can wear.

Adding new jewelry to your collection is not only fun but it can change your outfit’s look. It can also have an impact on your energy, mood and outlook of yourself! As you wear jewelry, notice how it attracts attention to your face, neck, arms and hands.

As a designer, I’d like to share a few tips with you to consider as you build your jewelry wardrobe.

Traditional vs. Modern
In the past, traditional or classic jewelry was thought of only for grand events such as marriage or for gifting to close family. Modern or contemporary styles were reserved for functions such as parties. While there is still a distinction between traditional jewelry designs and modern designs, the time and place of when and where to wear them is not limited any longer. However, traditional jewelry is classic which transcends trends and can last centuries to be worn and gifted from mother to children. Modern designs have also become traditional in a way, yet they tend to change with the current trends. You really don’t have to choose one or the other. Instead, mix and match both styles!

Type of Jewelry
There are so many jewelry options. Necklaces, earrings, bracelets, watches, and rings are...   CLICK FOR MORE...

Empowerment & Essential Oils

Empowerment & Essential Oils

As a wellness advocate with doTERRA, I have found empowerment through the use of essential oils.

em•pow•er•ment
Empowerment, we hear it all the time now but what does it actually mean? It is the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights.

The Process
In my life personally, I’ve realized it is important to remember the key word, process rather than achievement. Whether we are striving for empowerment physically over our body, emotionally over dealing with difficult situations or over the direction of our life, we can only become empowered...

Let Freedom Ring

Let Freedom Ring

“The secret of happiness is freedom, the secret of freedom is courage.” Carrie Jones

As we start the month of July, take time to reflect on our freedoms. What a cherished and valuable gift that we so easily enjoy in America!  We can celebrate freedom in all its forms. When we think of freedom, we might first think about the Fourth of July and our independence from the British in 1776. And of course there’s freedom of speech and religion. But what about “personal freedom?” The kind of freedom we achieve when we break free from ourselves and our old ways of being? How can we let loose of those things that hold us back from being who we are truly meant to be? For some of us this can be a difficult journey. But it’s the most worth-while one we can take. Along the way, rediscovery happens. Power is found from within and peace comes from breaking away from old habits and thought patterns. Bolder moves and choices are made with our life.

How, you say? READ MORE...

Summertime Freedom

Summertime Freedom

It’s that time of year when we’re about to hang up the backpacks and close the school books. Enjoy end of the year parties and graduations. Our schedules are starting to loosen up. Oh the joys of clearing the calendar! It means vacations far away and staycations in our backyard. Sunsets by the pool and walks along the pier. Sleeping in and staying up late. Saying yes to new adventures!

A mother's love...

A mother's love...

Mother-hood. Noun:/ A woman in relation to her child or children. Verb:/ To bring up a child with care and affection.

You have one, know one, or have a desire to be one someday. She’s beautiful, softened at the edges and tempered with a spine of steel.

Mothers are a strong force to be reckoned with. “Mama Bear” is a real thing. It’s when she realizes for the first time that she can run twice as fast as an Olympic sprinter when her child is chasing a ball headed for the street. She’s equipped with eyes on the back of her head. She can read minds. And don’t even bother trying to do something sneaky because she will find out. She does better research than the FBI.
