Self-Care… and Why It Constantly Eludes the Modern Woman…

Self-care is the key to so many things we want in life, yet it's often one of the things we most struggle with. While juggling careers, relationships, health, family and the other demands of daily life, self-care is the ball most often dropped (or point blank thrown to the floor). How often do we hear the cliche to "be the best you that you can be" in pop culture - movies, self-help books and yes, even blogs all preach this idea. We can make it an inspirational motto or an ignored platitude. I hope we can choose inspiration more often and embark on journeys to be better partners, family members, employees or bosses; most of all healthier, smarter, more spiritual individuals who take better care of ourselves. The common thread is self-care. We all know the sayings...put your own oxygen mask on first or you can't help anyone else, fill your own tank before you fill others or you'll be running on empty. Yeah, we know them, we quote them and in general ignore them. There are so … [Read More...]

This Is Me I’m Working On…

You may or may not know that I started the health coaching program at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition back in September. One of the interesting things I've learned is that in coaching others, you coach yourself. I understand now the synchronicity of the coaches that I've randomly been introduced to and work with. The universe pairs us perfectly. I understand more and more the importance of working with the right person. For me, that's someone who knows and understands my demons and someone who will call my bullshit when I won't call my own. I've translated lessons learned in the financial industry about people being invested or "having skin in the game" to the work we do in coaching. Someone can give me their answers, but I'll take action when they ask me the questions and let me find the answers. With that long drawn out explanation, I want to share some of the themes (for lack of a better word) that I've been working on over the recent weeks/months. 1. Self … [Read More...]

Warning – Don’t Let Life Pass You By…

We spend a lot of life waiting... Waiting for a better body to buy a better wardrobe. Waiting until we have "enough" money to have kids. Waiting until we can afford to change jobs. Waiting until we're at a goal weight to be open to finding "the one". There have been things I didn't even realize I was waiting to do, let alone question why. Fear. Thoughts of lack rather than abundance. Feeling undeserving of (fill in the blank) for whatever reason. Punishing ourselves for not being what or where we think we should. When we use these excuses to stay stuck we put off living our lives. She woke in the morning. She knew that her life has passed her by. She called out a warning. Don't ever let life pass you by. ~Incubus "Warning" Life is...life. It's messy, it's flawed. It may be easier to just float through. I sometimes wonder about those the seem to have no desire to live life better. How? How do you not want more? How are you satisfied to settle? What are we here for if … [Read More...]

The Perfect Song…

One of my life goals is to record a song with a significantly wrong note in it and leave it that way. ~John Mayer Isn't that the opposite of what I've spent most of life doing? What most of us have been taught, I'm sure.  A flaw, a mistake, even a tiny one would show weakness. A significant one? Certain doom. There's no room for wrong notes in perfection, but there's no room for perfection in the human experience. Many of us, including me, spend years aiming for it. What I now know is that not only is it not attainable, it's not desirable. When we expect perfection from ourselves, it tends to extend those higher expectations to those around us. Still unattainable, we set them up for failure, as we do ourselves, and the cherry on top is the disappointment their failure to meet our unreasonable expectations causes us. Our quest for perfection, I imagine, starts with others' misplaced expectations. We're not born with it. We don't have an innate desire to be flawless. How can we … [Read More...]

Weddington Way New Years Bridesmaid Style Challenge…

With all of the special occasions this time of the year, there are a ton of dressier looks just begging to be worn - more than I have reasons to wear them to! Given this, when Weddington Way approached me regarding their style challenge to use the glitz and glam of the season to create a look for a New Years Eve wedding, I couldn't say no. The challenge is this: you're the Maid of Honor and the bride has asked you to style the bridesmaid look for her big day. Design the perfect ensemble (using a dress from the Weddington Way collection) for a magical evening!     Edgy Glow Bridesmaid Look using Nora Dress from Weddington Way collection The base of my bridesmaid look is the Nora Dress in plum lace. This is a dress I could see myself reaching for on many occasions; its a an updated version of the little black dress. The plum is  just a punch of color, the ideal balance between wallflower and overpower. The style sleek and simple; the scalloped neckline draws … [Read More...]

How a Birthday Week Became 34 for 34…

For those of you who follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you probably know Friday is my birthday and that I was less than thrilled until a few days ago. You see, I go into credit card debt to create some grand, spectacular event accompanied by the perfect present for my loved ones. And I'll be honest - I'm damn good at it...which screws everyone else. It's like the episode of Parks and Rec where Leslie has created entire calendars of "special" days with incredibly thoughtful plans and gifts for Ann and Ben, who have no hopes of keeping up. I came across a great quote - you expect more of others because you would do the same for them.  I imagine its hard to feel the need to compete with private dinners at the Ritz, VIP pre-show parties and once a year events. It's not about the money, but about knowing what makes people feel important. It's taking the time to make it happen. (With my job, I have the advantage of planning events and my love of talking to anyone and everyone usually … [Read More...]

Great Outfits for Holiday Travel…

The holidays are here again, and for many of us this means travel (and lots of other things we can save for another time). Since most of my family is local I find myself spending more time in the car than any other travel options. I have three goals when planning what to wear: It has to be comfortable and easy to move around in. Layers are a must. Sometimes its a change in temperature from point A to point B; other times I know fellow passengers won't agree on a comfortable temperature. It has to be cute. Not fancy, crazy dressed up, but I also don't want to look wrinkled and sloppy like I just rolled out of bed and stayed in my pajamas. Don't get me wrong, I used to do this (long after age 5 when its appropriate) but I realized sometimes stops and things pop up and I'd rather look pulled together. Our travels seem to have kicked off early over the past weeks, so I'd thought I'd share these two looks I threw together for my most recent ride. Almost all pieces are plus … [Read More...]
