Yes, It Works!

 

Happy Weekend Wonder Women!

We had a blast kicking off the first week of my birthday month by giving away my favorite detox system by TeaMi Blends. I get messages and emails constantly asking if it really works. YES, it works! I would never, ever promote anything and put my name behind a product if I didn’t love it and find it effective.

That being said, the skinny and colon teas in the 30-Day Detox are NOT a quick fix. Many people are looking for that magic product or diet for weightloss and this is not it. A few people have told me they have tried other “skinny” teas on the market and they didn’t work for them.

You must do the ALL the work including a clean diet and regular exercise.

Detoxes aid in weightloss because they help the body get rid of toxins that may be preventing your metabolism to function properly. I am all about gut health right now and researching how it effects adrenal fatigue. Look into it! Also, slow and steady wins the race. Losing weight slowly and pampering your body during the process will ensure long term success.

Trust me, being in the modeling industry for 25+ years — I know all about starvation, binging, harsh diet pills from Mexico, uppers, laxatives, hours of step aerobics and all the horrible things many of us have tried in the attempt to lose weight.  I am sure that all the years of not honoring my body and abusing it is a big reason I am having to do all of these healing things to restore it at almost 46 years old.

It’s not about being “skinny”.

It’s not about a thigh gap.

It’s not about wearing a size 2.

It’s about honoring this one body God blessed me with.

It’s about respecting myself.

It’s about being strong and vibrant.

It’s about doing the right things now so I feel and look my best 20 years from now.

It’s about having the energy to walk out my destiny. (DVF is 70 and she is still killing it in business & media and looks like a million bucks!!)

 

No photoshop! Everyone is right about the Samsung camera phone. Tried my hubby’s phone for the first time.

 

I proudly show off my “TeaMi Tummy” (hey, that should be a hashtag #teamitummy) and am proud of myself for doing the work and not just constantly complaining about it.

Get your 30-Day Detox for 15% OFF at www.teamiblends.com and make sure to get a tumbler! It’s a gamechanger and makes the process so much easier. I’ve done detoxes that I had to cook in a pot and was a slave to  the kitchen for a week. Not convenient!

NEW 6-WEEK LIFESTYLE VIDEO SERIES: Week 1 Detox with TeaMi

 

teami_launch

 

Do YOU want to feel better?

Do YOU want to look better?

Do YOU want to do better?

 

If you raised your hand and answered YES then you’re in the right place, my sista! We can dress it up all day long, but if you don’t feel good, if you’re fatigued and foggy headed, no amount of makeup, botox and designer clothing can make you feel good. Ok, ok… maybe for like 24 hours, but the high from the instant gratification wears off quick. We hear the mantra “beauty from the inside out” everywhere and you may think it’s redundant, but it’s not. It’s pure, simple, in your face– truth.

What’s the point of rockin’ a killer outfit if you’re achy, moody, exhausted, anxious and have a lackluster complexion?

After the years of sharing all my style tips on video I’ve decided to do the same with the long list of lifestyle tips that I’ve only shared here on the blog. Why did I decide to do this? Because when I coach and mentor women, the first thing we focus on is their daily routine specifically their morning routine. I’m shocked to hear how many ladies are not setting up their body, mind + spirit for a successful day. (No, a cup of coffee is NOT breakfast!!!) So, we’re starting with your AM routine. Ready?

I’ll launch a new video every TUESDAY for the next 6-Weeks. ((Happy Dance)) I would love to hear your feedback along the way and if you’re implementing any of these tips. I admit I got a bit lazy and indulged WAY too much over the holidays and gained a few lbs so I’m kicking my own bootie and getting back in gear.

The theme of this series is all about “feeling good so you look good and then you’ll get out there and do good”. Ya wanna?

I’m kicking off week 1 with the amazing and effective 30-Day Detox I mentioned around Thanksgiving by TeaMi Blends. Why start with this topic? Because our organs need to be cleansed of all the toxins in order to function properly! That’s why it’s called a deTOX. This process is vital to kickstart any weightloss program and set yourself up for success. I’ve been drinking the Skinny TeaMi in the morning and then throughout the day when I have a really busy schedule to keep my energy up!

GOT A BRICK IN YOUR TUMMY?

teamidetox88

 

If you’re like me and love to enjoy a bit of indulging during the holidaze, then join me for the TeaMi Blends 30 day detox program. After Thanksgiving, I felt like I had a brick sitting in my stomach. How about you? I felt bloated, lethargic and heavy. You look down and see nothing but a poochie belly. I cursed at my skinny jeans and opted for stretchy leggings. Not pretty, folks. A detox was exactly what I needed. If you have been with me here on SOS for some time then you know I’m a firm believer in doing a detox/ cleanse a few times a year. The last cleanse I did was great, but it was so much work to steep the pot of tea and take all these droppers. It was time consuming and I wanted to quit after the 3rd day. I felt like I couldn’t go far from the house! TeaMi has a great travel tumbler so you can take your tea with you.

After doing some research, I found Teami and read through all the positive reviews. Here we are! I am only on day 2 and already feeling lighter. My energy increased and the bloat has started to go down. Hallelujah! I’m looking forward to saying hello to my favorite skinny jeans in a week or so.

Here is a quick explanation: 

 

 

TeaMi Detox will completely change how your body looks and feels in just 30 days! It’s completely GMO Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Sugar Free:
  • Boost your metabolism
  • Start burning stored fat
  • Calms muscle spasms and muscle tightness
  • Naturally raise energy levels
  • Detox your internal organs

Because I’m so excited about this easy, but effective detox– I’ve partnered with TeaMi to give my friends 20% OFF! Simply apply the discount code HENDRA20 at check out.

Let’s not be one of those women, ya hear!  Cheers to having more energy and wrapping up 2016 with grace and style. Despite the holiday hustle, please make sure to take care of you!

NEW YEAR’S DETOX: Inside & Out

sweet-potato-soup

Happy 2015 Gorgeous,

I hope you all had a wonderful time ringing in the new year with family and friends. Have you been indulging? I sure have and don’t feel guilty about it at all, no mam! But,  I am excited to get focused and back on the regular routine. A light cleanse and detox always does the trick for me. I’ve already shared how to get your mind & spirit ready for the new year so the perfect topic for the very 1st blog post of 2015 is preparing your body for looking and feeling it’s strongest. 

First, get back in the habit of drinking your lemon water every morning upon rising!

Second, eat a nutrient rich, fat flushing veggie soup for about 7 days. I love this recipe (and so does my hubby) and have been eating it for the past few days. It’s so tasty you don’t think of it as a detox soup! With the rain and chill here in DFW, this detox soup has been ideal.

  • 3 peeled & sliced carrots
  • 1 stalk of celery, sliced
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, cut into cubes
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 small white or yellow onion, diced
  • sea salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • all spice to taste
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cans drained black beans (optional for added protein)
  • 2- 32 oz cartons veggie broth
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups baby spinach

Add everything -except the spinach- in a large pot or crock pot. Cook covered on low for about 4 hours. Just before serving, add in spinach and stir for about 3-5 minutes until wilted.

I keep the rest of my diet clean with egg whites or a protein shake for breakfast, the soup for lunch and a big salad for dinner. Snack on fruit and nuts throughout the day. Drink tons of water!

This recipe is from the book, Hungry for Change. This soup is packed with superfoods, antioxidants and fiber which flush toxins and fat from the body. It’s a healthy, safe and effective way to kickstart healthy eating changes for the new year!

Third, the indulging also effects our skin so I love a soothing detox bath. This stimulates the lymphatic system, cleans pores and softens skin. Make sure to drink plenty of water prior to and after the bath!

*If you have an oversized spa tub, double the ingredients.

  • 1/3 Cup of Sea Salt
  • 1/3 Cup of Epsom Salt
  • 1 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons of ground ginger

Have a tall glass of water ready to drink in the bathroom. Set the bath water temp a bit hotter than normal, but make sure it’s still comfortable. Stay in this mixture for at least 15 minute making sure to submerge your entire body up to your neck. I take little breaks and sit up every few minutes. DO NOT LET YOURSELF OVERHEAT! The ginger really gets your circulation and sweat glands going.

If you are in a tub with a shower head, as you drain the water, stand up slowly and rinse off with lukewarm water. This washes away any residual salts and toxins sitting on the skin.

Dry off well and hydrate with a moisture rich lotion.

Drink that tall glass of water! Try to plan this in the evening when you do not have to be anywhere. Relax and enjoy!

 

DETOXMineral-Masque-Group_1024x1024

Fourth, now that your pores are open, sit back and relax with a detoxing mineral masque. Because of the additional sugar, sleeping with my makeup on too many nights (I know, I know… bad girl!) I’ve had some light breakouts so I get things back in order with Hard Night Good Morning’s Detox Mineral Masque.   It oxygenates your skin so you can feel and look rejuvenated. Perfect for all the late night’s and too many glasses of wine! Just sayin’!

This is your year to live a bit bigger & bolder than you ever have.

I’m ready. Are you?

LET’S GO!

BEAUTY, STYLE + INSPIRATION…for Spring {Sunday Affirmations}

spring_mags2013Hey Lovely Lady,

I hope you had a wonderful week.  Can you believe we are entering the final week of Feb?  I am thrilled about Spring approaching and have been browsing through all the new magazines.  My hubby has been in Australia for the past few weeks so I’ve taken advantage of having the house to myself by cleaning out some closets, dusting off my Spring accessories, started a fantastic new book and of course, watched a few of my fave Audrey Hepburn movies.  I’ve seen “Funny Face” a million times, but every single time I fall back in love with the color pink… and Paris!  I just have to share this fabulous scene from the film….

 

Doesn’t pink just make you feel good.  I never really wore it when I was little because I was such a tomboy.  Hmmm,  I’m thinking my new colored jeans for Spring will be bubblegum pink!  That’s my style tip for the week…..THINK PINK!  Now, for a great beauty tip this Spring, it’s time to put your tube of red aside and bring on a pouty pink lip.  Try a bright hot pink or fuchsia lipstick or gloss. This brings up a fond memory of my Grandma Betty Jo.  Her signature lip and nail color was a bold fuchsia by Estee Lauder.  She was a true fashionista!  This new Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede is suppose to be the bomb.  I plan to pick up a tube on my next trip to CVS.  I’ll let ya know what I think!

revlon_ultimate suede

Since we’re slowly coming out of hibernation, it’s also time to dust off the brain and the foggy feeling that can slow us down during the damp, cold, winter months.  Slight depression or the “winter blues” sets in because of the lack of sunshine and Vitamin D.  A few ways to pump up your Vitamin D is eating more salmon (if you aren’t a vegetarian).  It has very high amounts of Vitamin D and also taking a cod liver oil supplement.  Try to get out in the sun anytime it comes out and get as much as you can– without wearing sunscreen.  Yes, you heard your beauty guru right!  The sunscreen blocks the Vitamin D.   When we are well into Spring and the sun is out to stay, you better get that SPF on at all times.  Spring is a great time to review those goals we set on Jan 1st as well.  If you’ve started to putter out, dust off that motivation and get the pep back in your step.

THIS WEEK I WILL….

  1. Make time for some “girltime”.
  2. Look over my goals and kick it into high gear. (If you’ve been slacking)
  3. Cleanse my body with fresh juice made from greens like kale, celery, spinach, etc.
  4. Exfoliate my dry winter skin from head to toe.
  5. Add more salmon to my diet.
  6. Soak up some rays.
  7. Be bold and rock a fuchsia lip.
  8. Watch a great girlie movie.
  9. Do more yoga. (yoga is great for cleansing the organs and ridding toxins)
  10. Focus more on what I do have and stop complaining about what I don’t.
  11. Do something completely out of the ordinary and girlie…like vacuum the house in a tiara! Ha!

Ba-bye February….Hello March!

Share the beauty, style + inspiration with your friends.  I really appreciate it.

Wishing you many girlie giggles, great hair days and magical moments this week.

Love, Tiff

BEAUTY TIPS FOR HOLIDAY FATIGUE {Plus Inspirational Vlog}

Hi Pretty Poinsettia!

Is the holiday overindulging leaving you with red, puffy eyes and an overall fatigued look?

Holiday_fatigue

Because I work in front of the camera and have to look bright-eyed at a moments notice, I have found the following tips give me an instant well rested look even after a night of little sleep, high sodium meals, sugary treats and one glass of wine too many!  On top of that, I have hereditary dark circles and puffy eyes (Thanks Daddy).  Plus, the use of heaters and all the nasal issues we deal with during the winter can add to the puffy eye problem.  The combination of all these tips will give you the appearance of being bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and as if you slept a full 8 hours, I promise!

1. HYDRATE: Drink a large glass of water with juice from half a lemon. This helps with relieving a puffy face and cleanses the body of toxins. I actually down a big glass of lemon water first thing EVERY a.m.

lemon-water01

2. NATURAL DIURETIC: Puffiness is due to a build up of fluid under the eye.  Eat a bowl a strawberries to flush out water retention.  They are loaded with calcium, potassium and arginine which have diuretic properties.

3. TEA BAGS: Chill used tea bags in the fridge and apply to eyes for 10 minutes to reduce swelling. Cold spoons work as well, but aren’t as comfortable.

4.1.1
4. UNDER EYE CREAM WITH CAFFEINE:  Look for eye creams and serums with caffeine which shrinks fluid buildup under the eye. I use Garnier anti-dark circle rollerball with tint on days my eyes are extra dark and puffy. The caffeine plus the rollerball help de-puff the under eye area super quick.   **I will be giving this tinted rollerball in this week’s stocking stuffer!

GarnierEyeRollOn-769704
5. EGG WHITE MASK: Using approximately 1 teaspoon of an egg white as a facial mask will tighten the skin and shrink swelling and pore size. Wakes up your skin and gives you an instant glow.

6. HIGHLIGHTER IN CORNER OF EYES: Adding a brightening white, beige or peach eyeshadow to the inner corner of the eye adds a youthful look and widens the appearance of the eyes giving a more rested look.

7. VISINE: A ‘must do’ to whitens the eyes.

8. RAISE YOUR HEART RATE: Doing 50 jumping jacks or taking a brisk 15-20 minute walk instantly increases the circulation in the body which adds a flush to the cheeks helping you look more awake.

Plus, if you can get in a few 15 minute power naps here and there during the holidays it will help you get through all the parties and activities and try to stay away from sodium rich foods too.

CANDID VLOG: I share my thoughts on prayer.  I would love to hear your comments on the topic!

We’ve only got a few more days left until the final stocking stuffer winner is announced!  See you on the Facebook Page.

Love, Tiff
