TURNING MY PAST INTO MY PURPOSE

Happy February Fab Friends!

Over the past week, I have been in an abyss of computer-geekness gathering website design elements to have my new site built! My personal site has been neglected for the past few years and as an entrepreneur with a purpose, it is uncalled-for to have an outdated website. Shame on me! Your presence on the world wide web is vital for the success of your brand and company. Any of you who have had a site built for your business will agree with me… can I get an amen?! One of most daunting tasks, especially when you are building a business from your passion, is to have your bio written. This is the story of YOU, your experience and mission for all to read on the vast www. I humbly share this with you sistas so you understand my mission a bit better…

        From the trailer park to Beverly Hills and now back to Texas, Tiffany Hendra teaches women from all walks of life How to Style their Life.  As creator of the webseries Sanctuary Of Style, Tiffany has empowered women around the world to live their most fabulous lives from her private mentoring clients to an online community of over 20,000 women. Tiffany is a Wife, TV Host, Beauty & Style Expert and Lifestyle Mentor to women of all ages.  In addition to those titles, she can also be considered an “inspirationista” who is on a mission to guide women toward living their most fabulous,  healthy, Spiritually-conscious life. Her vision is for women all over the world to overcome their past circumstances and stand confident in their power. Tiffany believes confident women are World Changers!

Where does her passion and calling come from?

She knows many women are walking out the door each day with low self esteem, frustrated with their life. . . “I was one of those women”, says Tiffany.  She lived like this for years despite her successful career which took her around the world. On the surface, Tiffany appeared to have it all and learned the art of wearing a mask, but inside she was slowing dying. After enduring trials through her teen years ranging from sexual abuse to racial bullying, Tiffany lived many years in a shame-based existence. She became self-destructive, numbed herself with drugs and made poor choices from a place of fear instead of power.  After hitting bottom, Tiffany walked away from a successful career in Hollywood and embarked on a year of soul searching – the beginning of a long journey that would transform her mess into her message.

She never thought she was a life coach type…

As Tiffany began to heal from her past, she knew in every fiber of her being that she had to help other struggling women- especially young women- to live healthier and more stylish lives. She immersed herself with studying, learning, volunteering and even teaching everything she could about beauty, health, Spirituality, confidence, style and image. Her first opportunity was instructing a self-development class in Burbank, CA for teen girls ages 13-17. She went on to take skincare courses and became a consultant for Arbonne International teaching women how to change their lives through entrepreneurship. Part time, Tiffany was a sales associate and clothing buyer for a woman’s boutique on the popular 3rd Street in Los Angeles. She assisted her clients in revamping their wardrobe and image. Ironically, at the same time, she was revamping her own personal style. “When I was at my most depressed, this once Fashionista could barely put together a decent outfit herself and usually wore a pair of ugly brown cargo pants with tanks tops…and and I’m not a cargo girl”, Tiffany says. She realized her lifestyle was way out of balance and as she continued reconnecting to her Spirit the more her creativity opened up- even in the closet. During her growth, Tiffany sought out other Spiritually-conscious women and started a Spiritual group and prayer circle in her home for fashion and entertainment industry professionals. All of these experiences added up to be a great training ground for Tiffany.  Now, she is able to continue working on camera and at the same time, be of service to women around the world. “Sometimes when we’re running from our past, we run smack into our purpose”, says Tiffany. She found her calling.. or her calling found her.

Tiffany is extremely effective with teen girls and the various issues they face in their generation. She has mentored girls with depression, eating disorders, sexual and physical abuse, cutting, terminal diseases, suicidal tendencies and unplanned pregnancy.

Tiffany resides in Dallas, Tx with her Australian singer-songwriter husband of 10 years, Aaron Hendra, and their long-haired chihuahua, Zoe. Considering their marriage her biggest accomplishment, Tiffany uses this personal experience to help newlywed clients who are struggling, as she did, with the role of new wife. Aaron and Tiffany share a passion for helping others. They work closely with Sam Childers aka The Machine Gun Preacher and his efforts to rescue and rehabilitate orphaned children in Africa.

I am grateful that God has turned my HOT MESS into my message.

I am grateful you have joined me on this journey.

I am grateful for my past and the lessons it taught me.

I am grateful for my purpose and for what’s to come.

KILL THAT SUMMERTIME SHINY FACE……it’s just not sexy!

Happy Saturday Sparkly Stars!

What have you got planned for the weekend?  I sure hope it includes some “ME” time to refuel and refresh your soul.  Women give, give, give all week long- to your kids, your hubby/boyfriend/signifcant other, boss, girlfriends and family members so by the weekend, it’s time to give to yourself a bit and replenish your energy so your tank is on FULL by Sunday evening and you have the ability to do it all over again starting Monday morning.   You know I’m a firm believer in this and probably sound like a broken record because I bring it up so often, but I will keep reminding, nudging and encouraging you to pamper and love yourself.  No Doormats… No Martyrs… No putting yourself last allowed in SOS!  Ya heard!

Who is excited for Summer?  ME!!!  I thrive in the summer, in the sunshine and just love the energy that it brings.  In the next few webisodes, I give you several ways to look your most beautiful during summer.  Growing up in Texas and starting my modeling career in Mexico and the Caribbean, I have learned great tips for mastering the the art of KILLING THE SHINE!   The “grease pit” look that we can get from the combo of heat, sweat and oily skin is just not sexy!  Please share and comment if you have a great tip for killing the shine!

A few of you have asked who makes the dress I’m wearing in the video.  It’s by the line MYNE and that specific dress is called the “Heidi Dress”.   Which is totally random since this dress was a gift from my BFF, Heidi. How crazy!   Kim Kardashian has been photographed wearing it lots.  I’m not a big fan, but here’s a photo of it full length.  The bottom is cut so beautifully.  It’s so feminine and a perfect ‘day dress’ for summer:

There’s your helping of beauty, a bit of style, some ‘tough love’ and inspiration! 

I’m loving INSTAGRAM (if you couldn’t tell). I am a wanna’be photographer so follow me + I’ll follow YOU!

Make sure to PIN with me too.

Have a glorious weekend girls!

 

Fanning your flame + holding your hand,
