it’s time to get OUT OF HERE!

When was the last time you just booked a ticket, didn’t think twice and did something for you?

In the Western world our idea of Holiday is the holidays appointed on our calenders. If you’re lucky you take a vacation once a year and that’s about as much time as you truthfully take for yourself.

What if you were to live your life by the seat of your pants and for the experience?


Not just to pay the bills?

What if you sat down and wrote out your life (with nothing holding you back) and you shifted your priorities.

What do you envision your happiness looking like?

Too many of us live to work instead of living to live.  And then then they end up miserable.

So what do you say?  Are you down on making a list?  Can you jot down what you really want to and make them a priority?

Pack your bags, your life is waiting!

What do you have to lose, but another week, doing the same old sh*t. Spice it up folks, and tell me what you did!  I’d love to hear your comments in the box below.

If you love this post, you better spread the love around.  All you have to do is repost or pin via Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter.

i’ve got the best rosewater toner recipe for you!

I love making my own natural, holistic products. I”m going to teach you how to make your own because when you do, you’ll  be guaranteed to know what’s in them!

Toner gets the funk off of your face that your cleanser doesn’t and restores the PH balance in your skin. It cleans your pores completely.  And if you use the right kind of scent in your tone, leaves your face smelling bea-U-tiful!

Here is my favorite homemade toner recipe. It’s simple, lovely and smells so good, you’ll want to eat it.  Sounds crazy, huh? Maybe.  But it’s true.  🙂



4 tbsp rosewater

2 drops doTerra Rose essential oil

2 tbsp witch hazel

2 tbsp distilled water


In a clear vile, place all of the ingredients, cover and shake. Let is sit for about a day so that the ingredients can come together. Before each use shake the bottle and pour a little on a soft cotton ball or pad. Use after you wash your face, to get your skin squeaky clean and vibrant. Happy toning

do you trust your intuition?

When I was younger I didn’t have a friggin’ clue that I had something called intuition.

I guess it had been there all along, telling me I deserved better, not to date the guy that was treating me like crap, eat foods I knew weren’t great for my bod, or make a choice I knew I’d regret.

Do you trust your intuition? Do you hear your inner voice? Do you heed its call or do you shove it down like a lot of people do?

You might not know this, but your inner voice, (not the one reminding you how much laundry you have), the one deep down, inside your gut, is trying to guide you to your highest SELF.

In other words, it’s speaking to your soul.


Our world is filled with distractions and our mind runs amuck racing from thought to thought. It’s hard to hear this voice when our minds are filled with loud noise and wandering thoughts ALL THE TIME.

However – if you can actually STOP the next time you hear that deeper voice and pay attention to what it is trying to tell you, you might just realize that you know how to govern your own life and give yourself exactly what you really need, deserve and desire. 

Try it, and let me know if it works for you. I’d love to hear a personal intuition story of yours, if you are so inclined to share with me. Please leave your comments in the box below.

why you need to buy local organic foods

You might not be able to buy happiness, but you can create happiness and abundance in your life through mindful living. If you have a farmer’s market in town, make sure you are stopping by.  Anytime you can buy local, you are supporting your local farmers and purveyors. And besides, local, organic foods are WAY better for you than all those imported foods anyway!

Eat Well. Eat Clean. Eat Organic. Eat LOCAL.

i bet you need help getting motivated!

Do you ever sit there and think, What’s it going to take for me to get off my butt and do something about the body I want, the life I want, the career I want, the relationship I want?

You are not alone!

Part of what holds us back from doing what we want is NOT doing. We feel unmotivated, tired, over-worked, under paid, taxed…..the list goes on and on.

Motivation requires a shift in perspective. If you find yourself constantly whining about not getting what you want, take the requisite steps towards creating the life you desire, by getting off your bum and doing something!

Life is a process, it requires your participation.  You need to show up and start authoring it.  Guess what? You get to write the book!

So, now, what are you waiting for?!  Get up and don’t let excuses control your life!

I’ve given you a few inspirational tools for your toolbox.  I’d love to know how you plan to use them.  Please leave a comment in the box below.
