HAPPY FRIDAY the 13th

Hey Fabulous Friend!

How was your week?  I hope you were kickin’ butt and takin’ names!  It’s been an exhilarating, yet exhausting week for me because of the long build up to my hubby’s music video launch and I’m looking forward to being able to stay in my jammies all day on Sat…..if I can! Don’t you just love a lazy day to “piddle” around the house?  I put Pandora music on shuffle, hair in a ponytail, no makeup and do whatever the heck I feel like. I find if I don’t recharge after a busy week I become a total witch with a Capital B who feels me?  Because I was feeling depleted, I needed an extra snack of Spiritual nourishment last night and curled up with the laptop and watch a few epsiodes of Oprah’s Lifeclass with Bishop TD Jakes + Deepak Chopra. Whew! It was more like a yummy buffet than a snack. I highly recommend watching a few episodes this weekend if you are in need of some good Spiritual food.

{Style Tip}

WOW- I have been blown away at the responses from the “7 Tricks to Hiding the Muffin Top”. Everyone from personal friends, family and YouTuber’s are commenting on how much they needed these tips. Have you tried any of the tips yet? I wanted to remind you to play with your belts. It really is one of the quickest ways to camouflage things in the middle! Especially wider belts….

{Beauty Tip}

Did you know drinking a big glass of water first thing in the morning is one of the most important beauty tips you will ever hear?!  It’s true. Water is vital for proper organ function and remember, our skin is the largest organ so it’s just as important what we ingest as what we apply to our skin.  As we sleep our stomach fills up with acid and the water dilutes it and gets your day started healthy instead of on the toxic side.   Toxicity in your organs will show up on your beautiful face as acne, bags under your eyes and sagging skin.  Make it a habit to take a big glass of water to bed with you so you can down it right when you wake up!  For extra internal scrubbing, add some lemon juice to your water!

{Inspiration}

Do you have a special spot you can go to think, decompress and daydream?  It could be your bathtub, your garden, back porch, your mom’s kitchen table or even the gym. By now, you all know I love hiking and being outdoors.  I love being among the trees and seeing the sky always gives me instant peace. If you don’t have a special spot, I encourage you to find one this weekend. Maybe there’s a beautiful park nearby that you’ve never been to.  It will become your private oasis to run to whenever you need to get a hold of your thoughts, reconnect with your spirit and just EXHALE.

Beauty+Style+Inspiration Quick Tips

Here’s just a few quick tips for mid-summer…

{Beauty}

I am loving the ARCHIPELAGO Grapefruit Sugar Scrub during summer! The sugar is finer that the more course salt scrubs and the grapefruit scent and essential oils are divine.  It’s so important to exfoliate your skin during summer especially if you are out in the sun and in a chlorine pool on a regular basis.

{Style}

One of my summer must have’s is bold colorful necklaces. Have you rocked one yet? Turquoise is one of my fave’s because it looks so beautiful with a tan! Throw in some gold jewelry and you’ll look modern, chic + ultra glam!

{Inspiration}

Remember you become who you hang around. Do you surround yourself with negative nellies, whiners, mediocre people who want you to stay where you are? Make it a priority to hang around those who see your potential, encourage your gifts and help you come up higher. I am so grateful for the circle of cheerleaders and positive friends who make me want to be better!

If you have a great beauty or style tip for summer, make sure to leave a comment!

Have a stylish + successful week ahead,

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

Tiff’s 5 Style Rules (take it all with a grain of salt)

Hey Party People!

I hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day with more chocolate, hugs and kisses than you could handle!  Can you believe we’re half through February? Before long we’ll be tossing the sweaters for sundresses!  I’m ready for some highlights and a tan myself. 

As always I LOVE the feedback, comments and webisode ideas you are sending in.   Several of you seem ready for a CHANGE and asked for tips on how to put together key outfits.  In the latest webisode, I give you 5 Simple Style Rules that I have lived by forever!  There will be several webisodes to come with more detailed outfit ideas!

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! 

FOR MORE, WATCH WEBISODE…

 

Remember, we can all take a bit of style advice from French women and French designers! 

Quality over Quantity.  Less is More.  Style over Trends.

Audrey Hepburn is the epitome of STYLE!

(even though she’s not French, she always wore Givenchy)

Just a few days ago, we lost a very talented yet very tortured soul- WHITNEY HOUSTON.  I’m sure like many of you, I have fond memories of dancing and singing along to her videos especially “How Will I Know”.  She was so adorable and I want to simply remember her that way. Rest in peace WH and God be with your daughter.

Sharing the love, beauty, style + inspiration,

xoTiff

 

P.S.   We had the trip of a lifetime in Aspen!  Big shout out to my BFF, Heidi and her hubby for the amazing hospitality!  We tore up the slopes in style, of course:-)
