Hey Sassy Pants,
Thanks to Real Housewives of Dallas and Twitter, we have several new style sistas in the sisterhood! Welcome to my hood! A few ladies have mentioned going back through the old blog posts and videos. It’s so fulfilling knowing that all the content I’ve shared over the past 5 years is still empowering women. Someone asked what my personal style rules and I thought “I must have a video for that” and voila, I sure do! Even though this was filmed in 2012, these rules still apply:
STYLE RULE #1: Never leave the house without a little sparkle or bling around your face!
If I’m heading to a workout or running to the grocery store, I always add a diamond CZ stud earring. This just adds a little life around your beautiful face!

Make sure to share this with your girlfriends!
Love + Lipgloss,
October starts tomorrow and thank God the temps finally starting dropping this week. I haven’t really wanted to think about Fall fashion because it’s been boiling most of September. How can we think of faux fur, boots and fun scarves when the only thing that is comfortable is a tank or maxi sundress!?!
I browsed through my style videos and came across this one highlighting timeless black items and thought it’s the perfect time of year to dust them all off! These are investment pieces that all need to live in our closets.
Also, being the end of a month and the beginning of a new one I challenge you to take some time to reflect and re-examine your goals.
Let’s make October outstanding. There’s only 90 days left in 2016. What do you need to do differently in the next 3 months?
Love & Ladyballs,
I am thrilled to report that after just 6 weeks of starting the BioTe bio-identical hormone replacement with Heather Newman at Etre Belle…
I’ve got my sassy back!
Since my early 30’s, I have suffered from debilitating PMS. Let’s just say you did not want to come anywhere near my direction when I was PMS’ing! I was like the wicked witch of the west and would unleash my flying monkeys on anyone who crossed me. Luckily, for my friends and family I usually tried to hole up that week and became very antisocial. Maybe I just didn’t want anyone to meet the witch in me. I got on a birth control pill designed for PMDD and that didn’t help much so I got on an anti-depressant. I was also going through a spiritual healing at the time so add that to out of whack hormones and I was just a hot mess. I wish I had known to get my hormone levels checked way back then! We never think that peri-menopausal symptoms can start that young, BUT –THEY DO SISTAS!
It’s my mission to share anything I’ve learned that could make your journey better. If you are suffering from horrible PMS, migraines, foggy brain, mood swings, poor sleep, sluggish energy and low libido please go get your hormones checked. Make sure you go to a functional medical practitioner specializing in bioidentical hormones who will run an extensive bloodwork panel.
To give you an idea of why I was so exhausted, my testosterone level for my age and weight should have been at a 75 and I was -3. After much research, I just knew I had to try the testosterone pellets. They are implanted into a small incision in your upper bootie so there’s a slow release into your system over 3-4 months. It’s a super simple and pain free procedure.
My thyroid and progesterone levels were also extremely low so I’m taking a natural progesterone pill and NatureThroid. Strangely, my Vitamin D level was also very low so I’m taking a sublingual D3 supplement. I was taking Vitamin D3 daily, but obviously I wasn’t taking the proper dose. That was a wake up call because although I’m religious about taking my vitamins daily it doesn’t mean I’m getting enough.
I’m going tomorrow to get my bloodwork checked again to see exactly how my all my levels are doing. It’s vital to keep up with your bloodwork to ensure you are getting the proper amount of hormones.
LADIES, please make your health a priority! We shouldn’t be drudging through life with no energy and depressed half the month. Seriously, I would feel awful the week before my period AND the week of my period so that is half of my life. That simply just sucked.
Go get your sassy & sanity back!
Love Your Spiritual Spitfire,

Your Spiritual Spitfire,
Happy Humpday Hotties!
A twitter friend sent me this today and I just had to share. It’s perfect timing as we are shifting gears from summertime fun to fall and holiday responsibilities. I urge you to read each of these and give them some real thought.
Which apply the most to your life right now?
There are about 12 weeks until the beginning of Dec. Let’s focus on each one for a week and apply it to our life. For example, many women felt panic when the kids went back to school because the house would be empty and quiet again. Instead of the fear of being alone, shift it into time to focus on you, your health, your fitness, your hobbies, your dreams.
Turn that fear into power and ultimately, you will feel more confident. You know that’s what SOS is about! Whether it’s spirit, beauty, style or health related — my mission is that you kick fear to the curb and live the life of your dreams. It takes confidence to do that!
Pass the confidence along and share this message with all your sisters!
Love & Ladyballs,
