Home.

I attended college an hour away from where I grew up. Not too far, but just far enough that I felt away from home. I created space between what was, and the infinite possibilities that lie ahead of me. The truth is, home is more than a place or space. It’s a feeling. And it’s available to you at any time. It’s where you are.

Natural Beauty.

We all keep asking, seeking, until we get the answer that satisfies our curiosity. So, when my nieces approached me about the important coming-of age topic - makeup - I shared 3 important makeup mantras, which go deeper than surface level. Because that’s how I roll!

The Rescuer.

For years, I prided myself on being a rescuer. Whatever was wrong, I had the one solution that would work. Better than them doing it themselves, I would do it for them. It took me a long time to realize that it isn’t my job to “fix” people. In doing so, I assume something is wrong with them in the first place.

Live in Color.

Do you ever remember the moment you woke up? And I’m not talking about from a dream. But in life? The moment you had awareness and clarity like you’d never had before? This dream was it for me.

Brave.

Sometimes the bravest thing you’ll ever do is ask for help. I tell this to my clients, friends and family all the time. And while I’m often joking about taxes, business advice, relationship woes or picking out the right outfit, asking for advice can be scary. We become vulnerable and allow people to see that we don’t have it all figured out. They see under our layers and straight to our heart. Sometimes, asking for help is more serious. It can mean the difference between life and death.

I learned a tough lesson last week, but I’m learning to listen more and talk less. How can you be brave? How can you ask for help? Better yet, how can you listen to those around you and be their advocate?

Spring Clean.

Growing up, I lived in a spotless home. Every Saturday morning, my mother would divvy up the chores among my sisters and I. From dusting baseboards to cleaning ceiling fans, the chores were always done before play ensued. On the surface, everything looked neat and tidy.
