Have That 2nd Helping, Sista!

Gold Chevron Choker /Dark jean leggings by Express (50% OFF) / V-neck top with Drawstrings H&M

 

I’ll keep it short because I know you’re crazy busy getting ready for Thanksgiving! Just a reminder that we don’t have to wear our frumpy sweats or “fat pants” tomorrow. Go ahead and have that 2nd helping, sista! I know I will be having a few helpings of green bean casserole myself.

Keep it comfy, yet stylish with a fun top and the perfect stretchy high-waisted jeans. (Hallelujah- they don’t cut into that little spot under your belly button!!) If you follow me on my Instagram stories, you know I’m obsessed with the dramatic sleeve this season. Loving this striped blouse with tie front detail and zipper sleeve.

 

 

Enjoy making magical moments with those you love.
Giving thanks for YOU!

RUG UP! *Live* YouTube Video

 

Hey Hey Gorgeous!

My hubby knows I’m not a fan of cold weather so when I ask if it’s cold out — his way of telling me it indeed it is, “Yes, rug up gorgeous!”. That’s Aussie terms for bundle up and put a big coat, scarf and gloves on or you’re gonna freeze. Although I’m not a fan of the cold, I am a fan of a fabulous coat. In today’s YouTube LIVE video, I share my 11 favorite blazers, jackets and coats for Fall.

 

 

Check out my list with fun, reasonable options:

LADYBOSSES USING THEIR LADYBALLS! #MondayMotivation

Top with bodice similar H&M / Faux Leather Pants H&M / Patent Leather Heels DSW 

 

There is nothing that lights me up more than seeing women step out of their comfort zone and use their ladyballs!  This past weekend I hosted another ladyboss only on-camera workshop and am still on a happy high. Like every woman, each of the beauties in the photo above has an amazing story and I was honored to experience their vulnerability, heart, humor, wisdom, gifts and talents.

Doing something that scares you is what the true definition of courage is. When you push past the fear and do it anyway, you expand yourself and your abilities. When we shrink back, we stay small. Period.  After coaching and hosting workshops since moving to Dallas, I see women revert to their small stance of shoulders rolled forward and hands clenched in front of them. I teach my clients to strike a power pose before any event, speaking engagement or on-camera appearance. Women transform right before my eyes with this exercise!

My challenge and motivation for this week is to be aware of situations that make you want to shrink. Stop, acknowledge it and immediately change up your physicality by doing the Wonder Woman pose and saying positive affirmations over yourself.  (I get it.. some of you just can’t seem to wrap your brain around affirmations or think it’s silly, but I promise you- the way you speak to yourself is crucial. I would NOT be where I am today without power words and affirmations!!) Just try it. What could it hurt.

POWER POSE: 

  • Take a long deep breath.
  • Get grounded and create a wide stance with your legs.
  • Pull your shoulders back.
  • Hands on hips.
  • Smile.

Affirm to yourself that you are capable, strong and courageous. Get a powerful list of “I Am’s”. I am a Warrior Princess! (Who was that.. Zena?)  I am a badass! I am intelligent, talented and beautiful! I am a world changer! I am ________________!  Leave a comment and fill in the blank.

 

 

For some of my clients,  doing something fun like flipping their hair, dancing, doing jumping jacks helps them. Whatever it is to shake it up to get out of your head!

 

Special shout out + thanks to the fabulous Whitney Kutch (stunning blonde making the peace sign) for her help in making this day a total success. Whit- I appreciate your crazy beautiful self, your generous heart to serve and uplift everyone around you! Love you! 

 

Grab that imaginary cape and go slay this week.

SOS Went LIVE On YouTube: FALL 2017 TOPS

 

Hello Loves!

Have you seen the LIVE videos YouTubers are doing? I thought I would try something new and give it a shot. This is a great way to continue giving you beauty + style tips from the Sanctuary without the tedious camera/lights set up and hours of editing. We will still continuing to do fun, produced videos– but, I plan to work a LIVE video into my schedule weekly as well.

This first LIVE video was on the fly and a bit all over the place, but it’s real and raw.  I’m loving everything this season and show you a few hot tops for Fall. I’m figuring out how to actually put on some of the outfits so you can see the fit. Perhaps wear a black tank or shell and try things on over it?

Let me know what you think! Everyone on YT commenting that they really enjoyed it.

What would you like to see next?

Love to hear your feedback.
