THINK DIRTY. SHOP CLEAN. Must Get App

Hey Savvy Shopper!

As a beauty junkie, it’s always a challenge to choose the healthiest products because many of the hot, must have items are loaded with highly toxic ingredients. I do my best to choose what’s best for my health and now it will be even easier! Last week, my dear friend and lash stylist- Kathy Mitchell, co-owner of Bella Lash Boutique and essential oil enthusiast- told me about the Think Dirty App. It is simply brilliant! Go download it now. You scan the barcode on any cosmetic or personal care product and it will show a rating from 1-10 on carcinogenic levels (cancer causing), developmental & reproductive/hormone toxicity and allergy & immunity toxicity. Many companies “claim” to be organic and all-natural, but are not! Ladies, we must educate ourselves especially those of us who are beauty junkies and use several products a day. If I counted every product I use from toothpaste, deodorant, body lotion, shampoo, hair masks, body wash, facial creams, perfumes, hairspray and we haven’t even gotten to my makeup vanity yet. Yikes!  Kathy has lost 55 lbs by eating cleaner and changing out the toxic products she was using. Our bodies carry so much inflammation which effects everything from our metabolism to our hormones.

The founder of the app, Lily Tse comes from a family with a history of cancer. She began researching the carcinogenic and hormone disrupting ingredients in beauty products:

“I never realized the environmental impact cosmetics had on our health, until I watched Annie Leonard’s “Story of Cosmetics”, which examined the pervasive use of toxic chemicals in our everyday personal care products.

There are hormone disruptor chemicals in many products that have been possibly linked to breast cancer. I was shocked the cosmetics industry was not regulated like the food and drug sectors. And like most women, my lipgloss and shampoo are products I would never think to describe as “toxic” or could contain cancer-causing chemicals.

Finding safer alternatives for myself was a huge challenge. Although many products are labeled “all-natural” or “organic”, there is little transparency in labeling cosmetics. There was also no real tool out there for consumers to find information easily. With my background in design and marketing, I wanted to develop and create something not only for myself but for others as well, and that’s how Think Dirty® was founded.” For more, go to https://www.thinkdirtyapp.com.

AM I DREAMING? Look Who’s A Real Housewife Of Dallas #RHOD

tiffany-hendra-full

How many times have you heard me say, “there are no expiration dates on our dreams”? Well, I believe it more than ever today! Can you believe this news? I am a real housewife in the latest addition to the Bravo franchise! Ahhhh– it still feels so surreal. I’m pinching myself and so grateful for this dream come true. I’ve been pouring myself into new endeavors and SOS, but I have never let go of my dream of working in TV again. I’ve just been focused on God’s will, purpose and plan for my life. I would say He hooked it up big time!! I want to make Him proud.

About 7 months after we moved to Dallas, I was presented with an audition opportunity for a reality show that sounded too fun to pass up. I knew we would be putting ourselves out there in an even bigger way than I do here on SOS and YouTube, but after much prayer- Aaron and I knew this was an opportunity of a lifetime. We also knew we would have to grow thicker skin than we already had because allowing cameras to follow the good, the bad and ugly of your life is not for the faint hearted. Another reason this felt right was because my BFF of over 25 years, LeeAnne Locken, also wanted to jump at this opportunity and go on this journey together. We actually may have the longest “real” friendship of all the housewives. (Need to dig a little and find out for sure!)

 

RHOD_cast

The official cast is women from different walks of life. L to R: Cary Deuber, an RN and mother who’s married to a plastic surgeon. Brandi Redmond, a former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader and mom to 2 girls. Stephanie Hollman, Brandi’s best friend and mother of 2 boys. LeeAnne and me.

As with any group of women navigating life, family, new and old friendships, marriage, career and the social scene- there’s A LOT of excitement! Check out the trailer here! Our first exclusive interview was with E! (sqweeeeel again.. this is vision board stuff coming to fruition)  behind the scenes of our promo shoot. Check out that interview here!

Hold on to your hats, sistas! RHOD premiers on April 11th at 9pm CST. Are you a Real Housewives addict? You’re going to love our show. I promise. Texas women are spitfires so it’s going to be very entertaining.  Make sure to tell all your friends who are fellow housewife viewers!

When I kept saying I was “super busy” with cool projects and not much time for videos- this is why! Thanks for the continued support. Don’t worry, I am planning to continue the SOS videos!

Make sure to follow me on Twitter @TiffanyHendra because we’re already tweeting lots with the fans. It’s so fun!

YEEHAWW!

Love, Tiff

TURNING MY PAST INTO MY PURPOSE

Happy February Fab Friends!

tiffanyb_sweater2--copy

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.

Love, Tiff

 

 

TWENTY QUESTIONS FOR TIFF

Hello Gorgeous! 

I was asked these questions a few months ago and thought I would update the answers and share them here on the blog….

1) WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? At church on Sunday. Amazing sermon about being a giver and not a taker! 

2) IF  YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? Heck yea! I take pride in being a loyal friend and I’m a great listener when you need a shoulder to cry on and I’m silly when ‘girls just wanna have fun’!! 

3) WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEAL? Tex Mex. Starting with fresh chips & queso then tortilla soup and a chalupa or taco. 

Queso dip

4) DO YOU THINK YOU ARE FUNNY? Sometimes. I think I’m more quirky & serious with an offbeat sense of humor. 

5) WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? Their eyes. People who look you direct in the eye- speaks volumes to me. You instantly get a glimpse into their spirit. I don’t trust people who can’t look you square in the eye. 

6) WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST STRENGTH? Being empathic and intuitive with people’s feelings. 

7) WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST WEAKNESS? Being empathic and intuitive with people’s feelings. It can be both a blessing and a curse. Sometimes I feel other’s feelings too deeply and it debilitates me. 

8) MOUNTAIN HIDEAWAY OR BEACH HOUSE? Oh definitely a beach house! That sounds wonderful right about now. I love balmy ocean air, sand, living in a sarong and smelling like Hawaiian Tropic.

9) WHERE IS THE BEST PLACE YOU’VE VISITED? Africa! It was a dream of mine since I was a child. I spent time in the hustle & bustle of the city in Kampala, Uganda then in the bush of Southern Sudan. Life-changing! 

30558_380271993371_145837_n

10) WHAT FOOD MAKES YOU GAG? Mushrooms. Yuck! I have tried and tried and tried to like them, but it ain’t happening. 

11) SPONTANEITY OR STABILITY? I would love to say I was spontaneous and there is a free-spirited side to me, but I definitely like to plan and prefer structure & stability. I can be rigid and inflexible if things change last minute. 

12) ARE YOU AN INTROVERT OR EXTROVERT? Both. I’m sure it sounds strange because I work on camera, but there is a side of me that’s painfully shy. 

13) WHEN YOU WERE TEN, WHO DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GREW UP? Olivia Newton-John. I was obsessed with Grease and had all her albums- even Xanadu!

Xanadu

14) DO YOU HAVE A NICKNAME? I have had several in my life. Before J.Lo got her nickname, my parents called me T. Ro (Tiffany Rochelle). An old boyfriend called me “Lil P” for Lil Princess. Now, I go by “Fi Fi” and “TT”.  It actually makes me chuckle to type those out! 

15) DO YOU HAVE ANY PHOBIAS? Frogs!!! I have been deathly afraid of them since I can remember. My mom was so awesome and even wrote a note to my junior high principal so I could skip the frog dissection in Science class. She took me to work with her that day. 

16) DO YOU REMEMBER YOUR FIRST TIME ON AN AIRPLANE? I was about 14 and flew on Southwest Airlines to a youth retreat in New Orleans with a few older girls from high school. We actually skipped one day and went to the French Quarter. I was WAY too young to see that at 14. LOL. But, it was so exciting! I knew then that I wanted to be a globe-trotter.  

17)WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER YOUR BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT. My marriage. We are about to celebrate our 10 year anniversary in Feb. During my 20’s, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get married because I had so many issues with men including daddy issues. Then Aaron came along and changed it all. I’ve never stayed committed to anything for 10 whole years! That’s an accomplishment.

18) DO YOU PLAY ANY INSTRUMENTS? I took piano lessons until I lost interest and started cheerleading at about 12. Then I played for my youth group, but I’m pretty rusty now! I wish I had kept the lessons up. 

19) WHAT 3 FOODS ARE ALWAYS IN YOUR FRIDGE? Almond Milk,  Salsa (I put it on everything) and Greek Yogurt. 

20) WHAT DO YOU NEVER LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT? Under-eye Concealer & SPF.

Stay Chic & Stylish Through Winter {New Webisode}

Hey Fab Ones! 

At this point- with all this bizarro freezing weather- you’re probably bored and uninspired by your winter wardrobe. Am I right? I’ve had to dig deep myself and get more creative since I am actually experiencing winter for the first time in 15 years and having to wear coats/gloves/heavier sweaters! I actually wished I had ear muffs today because I didn’t realize it’s not a smart idea to wear my hair in a topknot while out running errands in 32 degree weather. Brrrrrr! 

It’s so easy to slip into that schleppy state of being during winter- heck, I don’t even want to shave my legs (poor Aaron), but let’s just say NO to schlepping. I’m excited to kick off the first webisode of the year sharing my 14 tips for staying chic all the way through to Spring.

Watch this: 

 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVE?

_______________________

Ladies, I want to remind you to really take care of yourselves right now. Especially since the kids just went back to school and you’ll be exposed to more germs that they will bring home.  Right before we moved I got so sick with a very high fever, congestion and a cough that I fought for 6 weeks and then relapsed before Christmas and just had to do a 10 day cycle of amoxicillin. 

Please keep your feet warm, take extra Vitamin C, keep antibacterial hand sanitizer in your purse, stay hydrated and drink lots of hot tea with honey and lemon to keep your throat and chest lubricated while breathing the indoor heaters then the blast of cold air outdoors. 

I am a super healthy gal and had never been sick for so long. Not sure how I made it through the big move and attending so many holiday events- guess I was running on adrenaline and my body never healed so I relapsed hard.  Don’t let this happen to you! PLEASE sleep well and take EXTRA care of yourself.  A low stress lifestyle will keep your immune system strong! 

Cheers to being healthy + fabulous in January!

Love, Tiff
