Celebrating You Mama’s +plus+ Be Bold…..Rock the Red Jean!

Hey Wonder Woman!

How is your May going so far?  I trust it’s A-MAY-ZING!  I want to personally wish all of you Mama’s aka Wonder Women- a very blessed Mother’s Day!  Women are able to do many miraculous things, but I consider the responsibility and role of a Mother to be the most admirable. Celebrate YOU, your children and the beauty of family this weekend.  I CELEBRATE YOU!


It is official- the SOS studio is up and running and I’m thrilled to launch a brand-spankin’ new webisode.  Many of you have written in about the colored jean phenomena and how to wear them!  In today’s webisode, I give my two-cents on how to rock a pair of red jeans and why I believe it’s a ‘MUST HAVE’ for all of our wardrobes.  They came on the scene last year, but aren’t going anywhere.  If you have been “iffy” on wearing a pair of red jeans, I encourage you to BE BOLD and rock ’em:


To kick off our new relaunch, I am giving away a very special and BOLD gift to say thank you!  Thank you for your patience and for supporting my mission to build confidence in women!  I fell in love with this stunning  Agate bracelet and can’t wait to give it to one of you.  To enter, it’s simple:

  1. SHARE the video on either Facebook or Twitter. 
  2. POST on the SOS Facebook Page Wall, “I am bold, beautiful and walk tall in my power”. 

Ends Friday, May 18th at 12:00 Midnight PST.  The winner will be announced on Sat, May 19th. 

Weekly webisodes will be posted again to give you the tips and tools you need to look and feel your best! 

I love, love, love your feedback and highly recommend submitting a webisode topic you want to see.

Did you find anything on this webisode helpful?

Please leave a comment letting me know!

Love yourself.  Love others. Shine your light on the world. The world is desperate for your glow.

With love, Tiff

NO MORE MUFFIN TOP!

WATCH TO FIND OUT HOW TO SAY BYE BYE MUFFIN TOP! 

This is a longer video- approx 12 minutes-  with actual exercises so watch when you have the time…

Are you serious about joining us on this CHALLENGE to get swimsuit ready by 4th of July?

Come on…like the Nike ad says, “JUST DO IT”.  You’ll not only look better in your bikini, but you will walk with more confidence, have better posture and feel stronger!

We’ve all packed too much into our days, but it’s vital you put yourself first when it comes to your health, wellness and fitness.  I found if I write my workout in my calendar just as I would an important meeting, then I am more likely to get it done!   For the times you can’t make it to your fav pilates, yoga or spin class…my sis, Natalie gives us 7 EASY BUT EFFECTIVE EXERCISES that we can do in the privacy of our own living room in the comfort of our PJ’s.

  1. Forearm Plank with Hip Dip- Core
  2. Forearm Plank with Knee To Elbow- Oblique/Core
  3. Standing Knee To Elbow- Oblique
  4. Overhead Pilates Sit Up- Total Core
  5. Seated Half Pigeon- Glutes
  6. Lunges with Butt Squeeze- Legs/ Glutes
  7. Plie Sqats- Total Leg & Glutes

It’s great to incorporate these core, glute and leg exercises in addition to your current workout routine! 

They only take 15-20 minutes..hey, we can spend that much time browsing Facebook or watching mindless Reality TV (yes, I’m including myself in that statement)…

LET’S DO THIS FOR OURSELVES GIRLS!  NO MORE EXCUSES!


TDL ROCKS! Part 4 of The 5 Minute Face: Eyes & Lips. WE’RE DONE!


A big thank you to Tara Dowburd-Luftman for all of her ez-to-use tips on THE 5 MINUTE FACE!  We’ve been getting great feedback and I have personally been looooving the translucent powder and not looking like a grease pit by mid-day!

Here’s the FINAL few steps in PART 4 starting with curling the eyelashes, applying mascara, then lipliner & lipgloss.  Eeek, I had been using the same Shu Uemura eyelash curler for probably 3 YEARS!   I just replaced it and wow, what a big difference.    Go to the SHU UEMURA SITE to purchase one.  They’re only $19.
