3 Ways to Find Balance During Self-Quarantine

It’s been well over a week ago when the world began to feel like it was imploding and so began the process of self-quarantine for many. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that this entire experience has been filled with change, emotional challenges and most of all some level of fear. We are so conditioned to stay busy, keep moving, follow schedules, keep routines to the point of daily mental and physical exhaustion. So now, here we are. We are not being singled out as a city, state or nation. The entire world (except for essential workers) has been forced to pause and stay inside their homes. I can tell you from my experience the first few days seemed odd, but then again, nothing about this feels normal. Yet on some level, if you take the epidemic factor out of it, it seems like this retreat has been…

High Vibe with Clear Quartz Crystals

Somewhere along my creative path of discovery and self-care, I came across new tools that would become a part of my everyday practice and lifestyle. As I’ve mentioned in past posts, this blog is navigating through new topics and I am excited to share them with you. So here goes! When I began learning more about meditation a few years back, I also became quite mesmerized and enamored by crystals and stones. Perhaps at first glance, they may just seem like plain old rocks that come in different colors and shapes. But as I began to study more about them I learned there was so much more to these pieces of our earth then met the eye. By nature I’m a very visual person, so anything with texture or colors has an appeal and like any girl, there was an attraction to things that sparkle and shine. As meditation and…

9 Reasons Why Number Nine is Important

We are officially halfway through the month of September and very soon we will begin feeling dips in the temperatures and the crisp autumn leaves will begin changing colors. Once upon a time when I was a fashion blogger, the fall season was such a busy time of the year. Lots of running around between fashion shows and the mad rush of getting content published everywhere online. Fall is still my favorite time of the year for the same reasons it might be for many. For example, the temperatures, the earth tones and the upcoming holiday season. It’s all about change and the key word in the air is transformation! And speaking of changes, if you read my latest newsletter “A Time of Metamorphosis”,  then you’re up to date with the shift in topics that I am looking forward to discussing and placing some focus on going forward, all in the…

One Petal at a Time – Flowers and Their Superpowers

“If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for a moment.” ― Georgia O’Keefe Flowers have been around for ages and have had so much significance throughout history. From a young age, we are taught that to gift someone with flowers is a gesture of friendship, love, and respect. Of course, flowers can certainly be a symbol of romance and affection in a relationship. If you really think about it, they can be present from the time women give birth to the time we say goodbye to a loved one at a funeral. When words can do no more, nature steps in to express an emotion or a feeling. I have always found flowers appealing and so beautiful growing up but in the last several years they have taken a front row to many areas of my life.  I have a newfound respect…

Shift Your Focus with Positive Affirmations

There is power in words. What you say is what you get – Zig Ziglar. Without a doubt what we say out loud, what we write or the words we speak in our minds can be powerful in a positive or negative way. For a long time now we have seen our social media showered with daily positive quotes. Perhaps because the days only get busier and the calendar days seem to come and go quicker than we can keep up. I mean it’s June folks! How are we half way into 2019? It’s hard not to notice that the focus on mindfulness, health, and wellness continue to grow and become very popular. And understandably so especially with so much intensity going on around the world and most notably in our country with our youth. It’s no wonder that there’s been a surge and a need for positive quotes and…
