Treat Friday: Skinny Monkey Bark!


Happy Friday, Gorgeous!

Before we jump into today’s sweet treat, I wanted to fill you in on the day I had yesterday.

I decided when I came back to blogging on a regular basis, I would share more of my day to day life because that is what I love to read about and what you told me you loved reading.

Yesterday was a super busy day and no, I did not go to the gym {it was closed} and I loved every second of it!  I mentioned yesterday my mind battle with the gym, so instead I worked on business {filling a fabulous coaching program!!!} and I spent extra time on myself.  This was my way of journaling more, meditating, learning, you know…..the girl eager to learn and grow kinda stuff!

I’ve had a pull to spend more time with my Goddess Cards, so yesterday after I did a reading for myself, I could feel a calling to do a reading for you!  I already posted this on the i Heart Wellness Facebook Page, so if you’ve seen it already, I hope you can feel where there are some great things happening for you this week!

Here we have Goddess Yemanya…..oh yes!  The Golden Opportunity!!

To make Skinny Monkey Bark:

Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together.

Struggling to Stay on Track With Your Fitness?

Hello Gorgeous!

I won’t lie…..I woke up this morning with the reminder that my gym was closed today and I kinda jumped for joy.  I know I’m not the only one, so I figured it was time to address the fact that it can be hard to stay on track with your fitness goals!

Yesterday as I was on the rowing machine, rowing my heart out out….I was reflecting back in the day when I would be at the gym every single day to get my pump on.  Seriously, I lived and breathed Jamie Eason’s LiveFit and a clean diet for a long time, but then something shifted for me.

photo 1-6

{Above is a change room selfie from yesterday after shoulders and cardio….we’re slowly getting back on track}

I dropped my workouts like a hot potato when we moved to Del Mar.  I’ll tell you so many excuses, like “the gyms are hard to do a month to month in Cali”, “Drop in is ridiculously expensive”, etc, etc.  But the lack of fitness training was deeper.

I was going through an internal shift and here’s what I’ve come to realize…..

The reason I was working out like a mad woman was not for ME, it was because every 3 months I was on a plane, traveling across the US to be face to face with our peers in our business and all the women and I would chat back and forth, sharing the workout program we’re on, how many grams of protein we were eating and the veins that we could FINALLY see in our shoulders.  I was obsessed with keeping up with these gals and that’s all that motivated me…..was the be better.  Look better.  Have a better diet.  Have better gains.

To walk into a room and someone say, “Wow, your challenge is going well, you look great!”

When I headed to California, I felt as if I wanted nothing to do with fitness.
Almost like I was turned off by it.

I tell my clients to be willing to be OK with where they are and accepting that they feel unhappy or frustrated so they can get into the motion of healing these feelings and replace the negative self talk.  As any person ready to change, I started this process as well, just a few days ago!

If there are areas in your life that you’re just pissed off with, let’s get into motion to heal them and move on!

1.  Accept where you’re at right now.

Just the other day I decided I was sick of my story.  I was sick of not feeling active and on track, I was tired of not feeling comfortable in my Lululemons and declared the change right there.

2.  Be willing to be ok with f*$%ing up and falling off course.  

Many times teachers and books will tell you to just “stop focusing on what you don’t want and it will go away”…..

This will last a short time, but what we want to do is create a lasting change, so hear me out!!

There is a reason you are feeling these feelings, jumping off your plan, leaving your goals aside, so we need to identify WHY this is happening and be OK with it happening.  Once we’re recognizing why you wanted to fall off your fitness wagon, we can heal it.

The truth is, this is deeper than just deciding one day you hate the gym and don’t want biceps anymore.

Like I said above, I was unconsciously addicted to the unhealthy / healthy competition.

3.  Choose to see your goals in a different, more serving light.

This step is so beautiful because you’re giving yourself permission to dance in your light!

Now that you know the underlying thoughts, you have the choice to fall victim to old beliefs or follow fresh new ones.

So when you feel the “Ahhhh I don’t want to go to the gym today”, ask yourself; “Am I willing to feel tired later if I don’t get moving?!  Am I willing to go another day without sticking to my goals?”  If the answer is YES, sure take the day off, but if the answer is a CLEAR NO!  Take this opportunity to create a new belief and habit within, create the belief that you will do what it takes in a way that feels right to succeed and achieve your goals!

I’ve declared my new habits and goals and one of them is to put the chocolate down ;)

HAHAHA!  Can you believe this holiday treat?!  WOWZA!

I hope this helped you?

4 Ways to Accept Yourself!

Hey Gorgeous!

I thought it would be fun to add in a bit of “spice” mid-week with a fun new weekly trending topic called, Words of Affirmation Wednesday.

Do you dig it?!


Instantly I received this calling to put more posts up like the one I’m about to share with you today because I believe that your world will radically shift when you start to live with empowering words, beliefs and thoughts.  Just like we spoke about in the most recent post, Your Outer World is a Reflection of Your Inner World, the thoughts we think and the vibes we live in must be pumping out through a rad frequency and thriving love!

Imagine being super consistent with your health goals that your body is feeling and looking great!  Heck, what if you are finally so connected to your purpose, you wake up jumping for joy each and every morning knowing you get to do what you love?!

To be honest, this morning I was feeling a wee bit of failure and upset creep in, so the topic today is all about Accepting Yourself!

You got to accept yo’ self fully and completely!  This might be easier said than done, but hear me out.  
When you accept yourself, you’ve freed up the worry of other accepting you!  

So, there is this one fantastic woman that has recently joined in for my coaching program and she’s a freaking powerful rockstar.  I look at her in awe of the following she’s created, the passion she has to coach people and her dreams of having a 6-figure home business…..but she was feeling like a failure for a long time.

Her biggest struggle was she had everything lined up as planned, she knows what she wants to every day, HELLO….her business is open – but no one was coming?!

*Spiritual Slap*  The universe always reflects how you feel about yourself.  Doh!  She wasn’t accepting herself.

You can line up your plan, you can write out your vision, you can do everything to get ready to get ready……

But if you’re not owning and loving your whole self, if you still hold onto disgust, fears, past failures and doubts more strongly than you do what you really want, your lack of self love / self acceptance can keep you down deep within that rabbit hole.

Great News!   Bouncing out of that hole is easier than expected and when you’re out, you’re witnessing more miracles than ever before.

Here’s Your Sexy Self Acceptance Plan of Action:

1.  Stop being so hard on yourself!

For the next 7 days wake up and spend time in gratitude.  What do you actually love about YOURSELF and your life?

Let’s put down the self defeating habits for a bit and start to let the creativity back into your life.  This will soften your days and create more attraction.

2.  What do you KNOW?

Sometimes the mind can get cloudy when it’s full of negative and non-serving thoughts, so it’s time to get back to your roots!  You might be so cloudy you can’t even see what you’re good at anymore.  It’s time to tune in and accept what you know!

When you know what you know, you can stand in your power and help more people with what you know.


3.  Get butt naked please!

Yup.  Strip down and stand in the mirror, alone.  Choose a mantra for yourself over the next 7 days and speak it from the heart into your eyes.  Finish of the 5 minute practice with a core shattering “I Love You” to yourself.

What better way to accept yourself than this?!

4.  Choose your throughs wisely!

When you feel doubt creep in know that you’re never going to fully get rid of your doubts and fears, but you sure as heck and love and accept them.  When you have doubting thoughts, get curious on what you can learn from them!  When you’re open to being with your doubt, you can easily choose NOT let it rule you.

It works like a charm!

I hope this helps you love what you’re here to be and do.
Ok, love!  I’d love to hear – are you READY to Accept Yourself?

Your Outer World is a Reflection of Your Inner World :)

It’s Monday, Gorgeous!

This is a beautiful day for a fresh start.

Imagine if this week you radically changed your life and you broke free from what your life has been?!  If you’re unhappy with where your career is, your happiness, your health, fitness, income….whatever you wish you could just *snap* your fingers and turned it right around?!  Pretty cool, right?

Well, it’s possible.

I’m not a coach or friend that will tell you that working on yourself is easy, because I know that there is a level of difficulty to actually make the decision to choose love over fear, but let’s be real, when you make the decision to create a shift in your life, you’re dedicated to it and you do your daily work, you will create some pretty awesome things in your life!


Today I want to give you something that helped me so much as I started my own personal shifts and has allowed me to see great success in all areas of my world.  This one tip will set you free!


Your Outer World is a Reflection of Your Inner World!

Ahhhhh, this sounds so simple, I know!  But if you really step back and check-in with this, you’ll see the importance to making a change right now.

Many people come to me because they know they have a career calling bigger than what they’re doing now, so I’m going to use this as an example today.  The people I mentor and coach want to be making a full time or greater income from home, doing what they love {who doesn’t?!} but when they come to me, they have the plan, they have the vehicle, but they aren’t shifting their income and life!


Because they don’t believe that they can inside.

As your biggest cheerleader, I have to remind you that your inner beauty and acceptance is just as important as getting that perfect holiday red lip ;)

So, let’s look at your current situation.  A fulfilling career and business is screaming your name, you know so badly that you can make this work and that you hate waking up to go to a 9-5 JOB…”but it’s not working for me!!”  The first step is to check-in with your inner self!

Do you believe you can have a business that you love?  Do you deserve it?  Are you affirming to yourself each day that you do deserve this?

You must go deep within and work on your BELIEFS and HABITS from the inside out.  Your outer world is always a clear reflection on your inner world.  So if you’re not where you want to be, check yourself!

TRUTH:  You are your own “Hype Girl” you always have the next steps and plan of action within, you just need to trust your gut and start creating a loving space within that will allow you to see the changes in your outer world.

So, let me ask you….

What is ONE inward shift you can make today that will allow your outer world to reflect what you want?

{My intuitive hit for me was, speak more empowering words to myself.  I have a Masterclass Launch happening today with Ryan and I can feel some doubts and anxiety….so that will reflect in my outer world.}  I’m cleaning up my side of the street today!  Are you??

I know I am enough.

Hi Gorgeous!

Today’s message is coming straight from the heart, after an amazing life coaching session with my coach.

I was talking with her over our hour session and it hit me when I said to her, “I know I am enough.”

photo 2-5

You see, I’ve been facing a lot of old beliefs over the last month or so.  It’s true, a coach can have times where old beliefs creep back up and surface.  For me, it’s a clear sign that I am human and that I have more to heal.  Does it make me a poor coach, leader, business owner?!  Heck no.  However, I won’t lie, I thought about just “pushing” my feeling back in and pretending like things were fine.

Have you ever felt as if you’re just tired of masking what you’re feeling and enough is enough, you need to reach out and have someone safely hear you?  I coach myself daily, however it’s nice to have someone to talk to without judgement.

There is no doubt, we all judge ourselves and sometimes its hard to see our brilliance when we’re just stuck in all the fear, guilt, doubt, confusion…you name it, we all need a fresh start.

Let me rephrase that, we all deserve a fresh start and this “Freshness” is what we need to be more, do more, have more and help more.

Today as I spoke with Ann, fully living in my victimhood, having a pity party and trust me, all my old beliefs were invited, I made the decision….

….I picked myself back up and I decided to make big change.

It’s hard to recognize that if you’re feeling out of balance, that it’s time for you to recommit to yourself, take responsibility for where you are and let the universe guide you to your next step.

When you partner with the universe you get great.

I sat with pages and pages of notes from my conversation with Ann and sometimes I feel that a good bounce back from “Ground Up” is good for the soul!  When you can admit that you’re not where you want to be for you’re not feeling FULL in life, that it’s SAFE for a change.

Do you ever question if you’re enough?

“Am I strong enough to build a business that I love?”
“Can I quit my job a pursue my greatness?”
“Do I deserve health and happiness?”

I totally know how this feels. This was me 4 years ago. I questioned MYSELF. My power.

If you can relate, my love, listen up!

You are enough. You deserve more. You are enough.

The universe has your greatest life delivered to you through every “hiccup”.
I might sound CRAZY saying this, but trust me….your sh*t is a blessing.  If you question “am I enough” is the first step for you to see with clear eyes and an open heart that you are! Look at what is being placed in front of you and ask, “what can I learn from this and help others overcome?”

The purpose of yours on this earth is to heal, learn, grow and share it with other people who need you.

If you want to know your next step, start pouring ALL your energy into WHAT YOU KNOW!

If you feel unsure on where to take your life, what to do, what your career should be, what you should blog about, coach on, teach your team, whatever….just focus on what you know.  What have you had to overcome?  What have you stepped into?  What do you KNOW?

I hope this helps you today and gives you a “next step” to make your life great!

I’d love to hear from you on this topic, so comment below now!

Sending you LOVE and Light!

4 Mins to Your Dreams

Good Morning Gorgeous!

I’m sipping my morning coffee and scrolling through Instagram and it’s so awesome to see so many of the iHeartWellness Community on there and connecting with me!  I swear, Instagram is getting more interaction than Facebook, or is it just me that thinks this?!

Today I have a new mind workout for you called “4 Mins to Your Dreams”!


I’ve been hooked on mini mind workouts lately.

Let me tell ya why!

I know the importance of feeding your mind with the things that you want, setting goals, visualizing and meditating…..but I’ve been so busy lately that to a 30 min “connection” time seemed too farfetched so I just stopped connecting to my dreams for a day.  That day I felt BLAH and out of sorts.  Kinda like when you don’t hit the gym for couple days, you know that “ants in your pants” feeling, but you try to hide that you’re feeling horrible?!  yea!  It’s crazy!

So, I found that setting 4 minutes a day to connect and dream is the time that kicks me into high gear and still allows me to feel full and GOOD!

Here is your “4 Min to Your Dreams” mind workout!

1.  Put on some relaxing music!

I love this Spa / Relaxation Music on YouTube!

2. Get out your journal!

3. Write out your 5 Big Goals that you’re working on achieving right now and as you write them out, POUR energy and love into them!

4. Spend 3 minutes visualizing yourself living as if you have already achieved these 5 goals.

What would you do each day?

How would you feel?

Where would you go?

Who would you see?

Ahhhhh get creative and let the emotion FLY! *NOTE: I usually cry with joy during my 4 min mind workout ;)

When you spend time in this space of gratitude and excitement, your energy is high and your vibin’ in a state that becomes a super duper attraction magnet and you’ll start to see miracles all around start to happen!  Your neighbour might just introduce you to someone who can help you with one of your big goals tomorrow, you just never know!

Reminder to start off small and don’t stress if you get a 30 minute mind workout in.  Your life and happiness is based on what jives for you…after all you are the conductor of where you go, how you feel and what plays in your mind ;)

BE SURE that you sign up for the Newsletter because I will be sending out more “Mini Mind Workouts” out that you can fit into your day and see radical life changes!



PS. What is ONE of your big goals you’re going to visualize today?? I’d love to hear!

Soulful Money Masterclass & the Weekly Vlog!

I woke up with a pep in my step this morning!

Ryan and I have been having a lot of FUN putting together a Free 3 Video Series that just went live today!
It’s called the Soulful Money Masterclass and it’s for anyone who wants to make a living from home, focusing primarily on home business owners, coaches, etc.


I know that many people face big fears when it comes to building their dream business and life!

We all get hung up and frozen over deep fears and for me it was always the fear of REJECTION.

I used to be so scared that my friends would hate me for bringing them a business that would change their life….which was never true, but I believed this fictitious story to be true, even before it happened!  But hey, life is all about the bumpy journey and appreciating all the hiccups along the way, right?!  I’m just glad I’ve learned how to embrace the fear and my shyness!

If you’re ready to break through fear and start making more money from home, get access today!! You will get the step by step strategy you need to reach out to people for your business with ease and confidence!

I wish I could tell you I was partying like a rockstar over the weekend, or sipping wine until the wee hours of the night, but that is not the case.  The weekend was really just coffee, working on the Soulful Money Masterclass, a quick run to the grocery store, a wee workout, Hudson kisses and more writing and shooting for the masterclass!

Saturday morning I actually had to put a full face of make-up on {using my new tarte foundation} so I was camera ready for you and it felt GREAT to get out of Lulu’s and into a blouse.  Talk about creature of habit….I felt lost without my wunder unders on!!

Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation {Foundation for Problem Skin}

If you have problem / acne prone skin like I do and you want a good, natural foundation that actually lasts all day….you will LOVE the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Foundation.  It’s super dreamy!


PS. I am sorry I do not have a Treat Friday post for you today, but to be honest…I have been to busy with business, there has been no baking in my oven.  I’ve been loading myself with Whole Foods treats instead of my own.  I promise we’ll be back to the schedule sweet treats in a bit ;)

Back to make-up for oily combo skin!

So, when I went to see my laser lady to help clear up my acne and get rid of my scarring, she suggested I use mineral makeup instead of regular foundation.  For years I wore Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and Rita, my skin lady told me the sad news that it was just aggravating my skin more, clogging pores, all that jazz, so mineral makeup was my choice for the last year or so.

It was great, kept my skin clear and it’s so easy to apply, however this month I am shooting a lot of videos and pictures for upcoming products and projects and I wanted a flawless face on camera.  Naturally, I went to YouTube to look up the next best thing to mineral makeup for problem skin and Tarte was the winner!

Off to Sephora my friend Chelsea and I went to get colour matched and done up!

The Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation is a medium to full coverage and it’s so easy to layer if you need more coverage in areas and it looks natural. The consistency is like a mousse and you barely feel like it’s on your skin!

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Foundation Breakdown:

  • Light Weight on your skin
  • Lasts all day {longer than 12 hours on me}
  • Great for people with oily / problem skin
  • Paraben Free
  • Great colour range – especially for yellow undertoned skin like mine
  • Great coverage
  • Films great / Great in pictures
  • Awesome alternative to mineral makeup

Here is a picture of the foundation on right before I shot in hot lights….


This picture was taken at 2pm, I put the foundation on at 7:30am and it was still going strong.  By the end of the night, I took the same makeup off at 10pm and there was no separation or blotchy patches on my skin!  DREAMY!

If you’re interested, I will do a video review on this foundation and show you throughout the day how it holds up and looks!

Would you like that?  Comment Below and let me know!


PS. I’m off to put my foundation on and head out to get my red cup!  What foundation do you LOVE using??

Is it Important to be Mentally Strong?

I read a message from a mentor and friend of mine, that basically said if you’re worrying or blaming others for where your life is, to step up, be strong and play like a champ.

Back in the day, personal development newbie would have agreed with her.

I was thinking about this message for a couple days now….mostly over my red cups…


I used to run like stink {not literally}, only thinking positive thoughts and freaking out when I had a bad day, thinking my world was about to crumble around me.

I don’t know if you can relate to this, but have you ever felt amazing when you pushed aside your negative thoughts and feelings for a little while, then all of a sudden then come back with a vengeance, worse than you were feeling them prior to the “sweep away”….

Most people live with treating their thoughts and beliefs as a beach ball in water. Pushing them down, down, down. As you’re reminding yourself “I have to be STRONGER, I have to think better thoughts, I am a loser…smarten up!” and BOOM you can only push a beach ball under water for so long before it comes and smacks you in the face.

So, the question is……is it important to be mentally strong?

My answer is yes and no.

When I work one on one with my clients and team we work a lot with the deep seeded fears they feel.
The ones that stop them from taking the scary steps to build their business or their dream life….

As I would tell them, you must first BE WITH and identify the feelings of weakness that you feel.

Why do you believe you’re not strong in the first place?  Can you be OK with having days when you’re not feeling like superwoman and can you grab your journal and find out what the miracle is in the place where you feel the most vulnerable….your lack of strength.

Yes, I do agree there is a time and place to pull your mega woman strength and run like the wind, staying focused and getting things done. I’ve lived in that space to turn my life completely around and fill a business….but what I learnt along the way and what I’m here to tell you today is that if you’re tired of running through Up’s & Down’s, through confusion on why you might go days and then feel like curling up under the covers all day long and cry….you have to look at the emotions and feelings that you are try to push below the water and the ones you’re labelling as weak.

You are not weak, you are strong, you have every feeling and emotion pulsing through you as a way to learn and grow!

Believe it or not, it’s easier to embrace the things you freaking hate about yourself and see where they can serve you.

I’ll be open with you….
I am a driven person and always have been. Competitive and business driven. For some reason my drive would stop after I started things and I couldn’t figure out why…years would go by and I would be on a roller coaster of new things and never stay focused and I’ll tell ya, I BEAT MYSELF up over this, I was the biggest loser in my mind.

It wasn’t until I stopped and identified what was in my beach ball that I was pushing wayyyyyy down.

Simple enough I found it, my limiting belief was “All good things will come to an end, so why bother?!” I didn’t know this was strongly within me, but it explained my “go and stop” for years and years.

This is what I did with this new found information -
I forgave MYSELF. I got real with knowing that this is my belief and when I went to set new goals, build my business and the days would show up where I didn’t even want to touch the computer or phone, my loser mindset would blaze in my ear, I would challenge myself and ask “Is this serving me?” NOPE! And I could easily move on with my day.

If this is something you can relate to, I’d love to hear!
Comment below and let me know how you work through limiting beliefs.


PS.  Have you watched the latest VLOG?  I am doing them WEEKLY, filming each day, but uploading the weeks Video on Sunday…this is easier for me to build my brands, business and everything else going on!
