I always love a good red carpet!! The Met Ball was last night here in New York and I have to say while reviewing all the looks I was somewhat disappointed! The Celebrities and their stylists clearly ran themselves into a frenzy trying to re-create runway looks that we see on models in New York, London and Paris and it just didn’t work on almost everyone! The one woman who shined bright for me was non other Madam Anna Wintour herself! She never looked better! Chic bangs paired with a fresh and pretty makeup is a look that can translate easily into your daily routine. Check out my 5 minute face video for the makeup tips for this look and become your own queen bee like great fashion icon!
It came to my mind today as I was walking vigorously to my morning destination here in New York that indeed I was getting some exercise in but when I stopped myself for a moment I realized that I wasn’t walking consciously, meaning I wasn’t relaxed as I walked and therefore wasn’t enjoying it! As I switched my step to a more conscious place of just allowing it to be a lovely morning walk instead of the mad run to work, I then started to feel happier and less stressed. It’s true that just going for a 15 minute walk everyday no matter where you live can help reduce stress and actually will increase your life span. So go ahead get moving and remember to tell yourself that today I am walking my way to a happier life!
If your life is unbalanced on the outside it is because you are unbalanced on the inside! Whether it is a hot bath, a manicure or a quick workout for example, when you make taking time to care for yourself a PRIORITY you will begin to see things in your life fall into place more smoothly.
Meditating in the morning even for 15 minutes everyday can change your life! If your having trouble getting started Focus on your breath inhaling and exhaling through your nose deeply and slowly. Be patient and consistent and you will begin to feel your fierce self rise up.
I feel like I can finally with all honesty start talking about spring makeup!! The weather seems promising now the last few days so here we go! I have seen many beauty writers talking about the usual pretty in pink for spring blushes lately and I often wonder what on earth are they talking about? In my opinion there aren’t that many of us who can actually wear a true pink on our skin. I also am not one to advise to much on following trends with makeup because ideally once you find a blush that enhances your own beautiful skin color, you really should just stick to it. Your cheeks should never look stark but instead should appear as if it is your own natural color peeking through. Try this palette by Urban Decay Naked Flushed! This palette is a combination of warm pink and bronze with a dash of iridescence for highlighting. Happy Spring!
On this Easter Sunday instead of thinking about how Jesus may have suffered for our sins think about how you can apply the true esoteric meaning of the holiday into your daily life. For me it is to simply let go of the things and beliefs that no longer serve your highest and greatest good and rise up everyday with an open heart and feel truly grateful for this wonderful life. Happy Easter!
Post partum depression, monthly PMS, raging hormones, never ending house cleaning, laundry, kids, cooking and full time jobs! Daily life for many moms is filled with let’s face alot of hard work and stress, which can easily lead to mild and sometimes severe depression. It seems to be common knowledge these days that lack of sunlight particularly during winter months can lead to depression in many people. Color therapy can be traced back thousands of years to the healing practices of ancient Egyptians whereby the effect of different colors can heal the human body both physically and mentally as the colors correlate with the bodies chakras. If you don’t have the time to visit a color therapy practitioner then try meditating upon a specific color or imagine your self breathing that color into your body for a few minutes every morning. Violet, indigo, light blue, green, yellow, orange and red are the colors that correspond with the bodies chakras. Wearing the colors on your body and YES with makeup can also help your mood! So try a splash of indigo over the top of your eyelid to perk things up a bit.
