Weeding out what doesn’t serve you…

Growing up, I remember hearing the phrase “Sometimes you have to kiss many frogs to find your Prince.”   Reflecting on that now, it seems a little absurd. The notion that as females (or males in some cases) we should expect to have to be continuously mistreated by someone who refuses to acknowledge our greatness, to…

The Other Battle

Even in today’s world where this is so much hope and prospects with breath throughs and medical science as well as a resurgence of interest in holistic healing and wellness, millions of people struggle with disease and other forms of illness every single day. The good news is that we are finding many ways to…

The Anxiety Factor

In life, being anxious is something that we all experience. Whether it is anxious about the first date with someone, being anxious about a colossal presentation that we will have to make for work, or being anxious about our first little one staring back at us from that school bus window on the first day…

Self-Love & Acceptance

As little girls and definitely as adolescent girls, I think that it’s safe to say that most of us struggled to try to find acceptance among our female peers. We spent a lot of time dressing a certain way, behaving a certain way and treating each other a certain way in the hopes of “fitting”…

True Beauty

At 35 years of age, it wasn’t so long ago that I was just an impressionable teenaged girl. Britney Spears’ low rise hip-huggers were turning heads, Christina Aguilera had just been rebranded X-Tina thanks to those red boy shorts and chaps and punk rock princess Avril Lavigne had teen girls everywhere trying to figure out…

Resilience & You

There is a quote by Brooke Shields that I have always loved “Someone said adversity builds character, but someone else said adversity reveals character. I’m pleasantly surprised by my resilience. I persevere, and not just blindly. I take the best, get rid of the rest, and move on, realizing that you can choose to take…

But many don’t know where to begin or what are some universal pros and cons of trying to transition from a hobby writer into a full-fledged published author. I had the opportunity to speak with author and owner of Hardy Publications, Chanel…

Back To School

Imagine being a very well established career woman, that balances said career fulltime with raising a family. What if one day you decide to pursue your life passion and become the CEO of an in-demand Cosmetic brand that almost immediately is met with HUGE success? What if in the mix of all of that greatness…

The Pink Rose

A classic symbol of grace and elegance, the pink rose is often given as a token of admiration and appreciation. It is also a symbol of gratitude. The first trace of the pink rose was found in fossils dating back 40 million years. More recent historical evidence shows pink roses were grown in China’s Imperial rose…
