Tips for Finding Contentment in your Own Body

We are a society that focuses on outer appearances.  Looking younger, thinner, stronger, fitter, ridding our bodies of cellulite, hiding our grey hair, filling in our wrinkles with botox and fillers.  We are so hard on ourselves as women and I've learned this goes for men too. It's no wonder that as North Americans we spend billions on dieting tools, undereye concealer, wrinkle creams and cosmetic procedures. And I am not judging trust me. I am right with you on this trying to continually re...

Tips for Doing the Un-Diet Diet

This post is not about natural beauty. It is about food, obsession, mental health and eating disorders.  Writing this post was therapeutic and it feels so good to put it in writing. I hope to continue with updates as the journey unfolds.    I have tried most diets on the market. Veganism. Vegetarianism. Pescatariarism. Keto. Gluten free. Dairy free. Sugar free. Candida Diet. Muscle building plan of balanced macronutrients and eating six meals a day on a schedule like clockwork. I am sure the...

10 Life Changing Lessons Learned from India

I was recently away for a two week adventure in Northern India on a Yoga retreat and I had sincerely hoped to make some personal discoveries while I was there. I did that and so much more.  Read on to hear about my discoveries and adventures in laughing, yoga, and making memories to last a lifetime.    1. Laugh, and laugh more and then when it really hurts, laugh some more. We really do not laugh as much as we need to for the goodness of our soul, mental health and how about those deep abs :...

How to Use Your Passion to Fuel Your Life

I am a passionate person by nature. Perhaps its my Eastern European blood?! I get easily "worked up" when a conversation arises that I feel strongly about, so much so that I really need to have an awful lot of self awareness that sometimes my audience isn't ready for me.  However, I also use my passion to fuel my life and all of my hobbies and endeavours.  It is why my husband has to constantly remind me to not take on anything else, as I am always so inclined to do.  My attitude is this. I ...

What Defines Beauty?

Is it someone's smile? Their eyes? Their skin? Their body? Their spirit?    The saying goes "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and I truly believe that is the truth. There is no one definition of what beauty is. We can all look at the same supermodel or actress/actor and have an opinion on whether they truly are the "sexiest" or the "prettiest".  The truth is that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, all colours, all ages, and breaks all stereotypes that beauty magazines and so called "...

Steps to the Ultimate Clean Belly, Clean Skin, Clean Mind

When we look at our skin care regime we can't look at it as one singular area of health. We need to approach our outer beauty, our skin, as one leg of a three legged stool that will topple over if not in harmony. The other two legs being a clean belly or diet and a clean mind that is free of clutter, stress and all things that don't serve us in the present moment. Sounds easy right? Not so much. Most of us would agree it is a constant struggle to balance and achieve these three areas of heal...

Natural Beauty That Goes Skin Deep and Beyond

This is not a blog post with a 1, 2, 3 on how to be more naturally beautiful. Not in the traditional sense that many blog posts do, that is, as we all search for the secret anti-aging formula to turn back time. This post is about how I am using my natural beauty company to give back to my community and to help empower and showcase the inner beauty and tenacity of many incredible women who need a helping hand to get back on their feet after domestic abuse, family or health issues.     I had t...

It's All About the Trip

These last forty-eight hours the universe has been sending me a strong message about the "trip". This is how it all started twenty-six years ago.  I was sitting in an undergrad psychology class in my first year of university when a girl that I had only randomly smiled at in class who sat behind me, tapped me on the shoulder and said "I have this poem that I think you may enjoy", and she handed me a copy of it.  Just like that and very randomly.  The poem is titled "The Station" by Robert J. ...

Keep Your Immune System Strong These Holidays

    I get sick every winter, and I mean really sick. One bad cold or flu to knock me straight into bed for at least 1-2 weeks usually right before Christmas.  I am not new to germs having three teenagers and having owned daycare centres also for the past decade.  However it seems that my immune system gets run down and can't fight the germs away, no matter how much I try to avoid germs at all costs and practice hand washing and good germ busting hygiene.   I eat impeccably clean and healthy....

"Show Me A Woman Who Isn't Overwhelmed"

  While recently watching my favourite binge-watching pastime, The Good Wife, I had to write down this quote from one episode in which Gloria Steinem, famed as a feminist icon, told Alicia Florrick "show me a woman who isn't overwhelmed" in her urging Alicia to run for office after Alicia remarked that she wasn't sure she could take on the role and still be able to balance her family, legal career, business, and her personal values.   Ok ladies, seriously isn't this what we all face each and...

Good Mama Choices: French fries, Candy & Sanity

As a mother of three daughters: a soon to be 16 year old and 12 year old twins, my every day goal is to make good healthy decisions for myself so that I can be around a long, long time and so that as adults my daughters will make healthy lifestyle choices through the examples I am setting for them now.    It's a constant struggle however as I so badly want to absolutely forbid all McDonald's french fries, soda pop in my house and candy store adventures. However, while I am fairly extreme in ...

Swimming As a Mental Health Antidote

When you think of swimming, it’s often an activity associated with children or seniors; visions of water-slides and canon balls or lane dividers and flutter boards come to mind. But no matter how busy life gets, we must never forget that swimming is a viable pastime for all ages, mothers, students, and CEO’s alike.   Swimming is not just a form of resistance-free exercise either.  Studies show that swimming can also improve your mental health.  Here are the three reasons why: University of ...
