My client, Christine Haas- NBC News Anchor,  just needed to make a few small adjustments to take her on-camera image to the next level.  Here’s what she had to say about her hour consultation with me:

“As a newscaster, my appearance is always scrutinized and I turned to Tiffany for help!  She had wonderful advice for me and she really tapped into ways to make my personality jump out.  I felt like I went to therapy!  She’s spot on — when a girl doesn’t look good — a girl doesn’t shine…and Tiffany helped me get my sparkle back.  She’s a beautiful soul and a real pro!”

CALLING ALL FELLOW SHOE LOVERS

Hello my fellow shoe lover!

As early as I can remember, I have loved shoes!  From yoyo’s to jellies to clogs to checkered vans and Doc Marten’s, I remember how great it felt to rock a brand new pair to school.  I thought I was HOTSTUFF!  Who relates? Who shopped at Wild Pair?  That was the first shoe store I remember absolutely loving.  Ahhh, brings back memories!

Shoes say so much about a person.  If you see a gal wearing a pair of red platform peep-toe heels, you automatically think her personality is flirty, fun, bold and confident, right?  On the other hand, if you see someone wearing a pair of fringe moccasins, she may be a free-spirited,  peace +  love, hippie chick.   Hmmm, I just realized I have both which means I have a bit of a  multiple personality when it comes to shoes.  I don’t really consider myself totally obsessed with shoes or how many pair I own, but I definitely can get pretty darn giddy (as you will see in the video…calm down Tiff) over a fabulous shoe or boot. 

In the beginning of my marriage, I gave away most of my shoes or sold the designer ones on Ebay and had to share a tiny closet with my hub’s….YES, TOTAL MISERY!  Just sayin’!   I have been able to slowly build my collection back up and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show it off along with the awesome closet Aaron built for me, on the new web channel by Nine West called CHANNEL 9.  It’s the ultimate shoe lovers entertainment destination. Bringing you the most up to date tips and trends for the fashionista.   I appreciate them allowing us to give a shout out to SOS and a major plug for the hub’s music!

What is your shoe personality?

Health + Beauty Tip:

I recently found out that eating just 2-3 Brazil Nuts per day add significant health + beauty benefits!  They are an excellent source of mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) like palmitoleic acid and oleic acid that helps to lower LDL or “bad cholesterol” and increases HDL or “good cholesterol” in the blood.  Brazil Nuts are also packed with selenium, vitamin E, B-complex vitamins and several minerals like copper, magnesium, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, and zinc.  Did you know that SELENIUM aids the production of an antioxidant called GLUTATHIONE, which slows down the skin’s aging process by repairing cell damage from things like sun overexposure?  I HAD NO IDEA!  By zapping free radicals, glutathione and vitamin E also help protect the skin’s oil and essential fats that keep it watertight and hydrated, while vitamin E promotes skin healing.  This means they help with wrinkles AND acne!  Woohoo!  Go buy a bag today! Remember, selenium is harmful in large quantities so just eat a few at a time!

Remember to share the Beauty, Style + Inspiration with your girlfriends!

We want everyone to feel the SOS love!

Be Inspired…
As you decompress at night, take a deep inhale then slowly exhale any angst, drama, tension or ill feelings you are carrying. Do not take it to bed with you! It’s like poison and will disrupt your sleep and will carry over into your day tomorrow. Lay your head down tonight and give thanks for the good, happy, fun, successful and beautiful feelings you had today. Say to yourself that “Tomorrow is a brand new day and it will be AMAZING!!”

How are you doing on this week’s affirmations?

Wishing you a fantastic rest of the week!

Love, Tiff

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.

We are having such a blast with the weekly SOS Swag Bag Giveaways. Make sure to join the convo’s on FACEBOOK and subscribe to this blog to enter. Here’s what in today’s bag:

SINGLE, SMART + SPIRITUAL

Happy Sunday Sistas!

Many of you fabulous fashionistas are single and I wanted to take a minute to encourage you and remind you of something VERY important- if you truly desire a healthy relationship with your “soulmate”, then you must remember the best matchmaker is God and one of the most important qualities in a man is that he has a strong Faith.  Most of the time, it’s us gals who place our Spirituality as a priority because we are more intuitive, nurturing creatures. Who knows- I’m just guestimating that.  We all have different Spiritual beliefs and I respect everyone’s Faith.  I am only speaking my Truth and sharing my experiences with the hope that it encourages you.  I always had the dream of being married (in the back of my head and hidden deep down in my heart), but like many of us- I had been cheated on and my heart smashed to pieces a few times which altered my views on what a healthy relationship was.  I dated the gamut of men from broke screenwriters to narcissistic male models to sports fanatics to grown men who acted like a 12 year old to wealthy businessmen with bad drug habits.  Then add my “daddy issues” and it seemed like a far-off-impossible dream that I could ever find….. someone I trusted with all of me (the good stuff AND the baggage), genuine love, a partner who had my back, a cheerleader who nurtured my dreams AND a real man who loved God. Was it possible? Is “he” out there?

Ok, I admit it– I was one of those gals who had the ‘lap over’ relationships.  You know what I’m talking about, find a new one before you really leave the last one. Shame on me, I know!  I didn’t know how to be alone.  Before I could allow “the one” to appear in my life, I had to begin a relationship with “The One”- God.  I had to allow myself to be alone (I hated that) and start falling in love with me as well.  It was like I was dating God. I know that sounds weird, but it’s true.  I actually started a list of what I wanted in my “dream man”.  I wrote every little detail down and prayed for him. Yes, I started praying for him before I even met him.  I had to become content and comfortable with ME!  Being single is actually a liberating and beautiful time of growth.  For the first time, I actually liked me, my single status and embraced the excruciating growth period. Then, after about two years of this introspection, praying, believing and lots of “Tiff Time”….God brought along my Knight. So yes, to answer my own question….IT IS POSSIBLE!  HE IS OUT THERE!

If you have the dream of sharing your life with the “man of your dreams”, TODAY- I recommend writing down every single characteristic you want in him and begin asking God (the ultimate matchmaker) to prepare you both and bring you together at the RIGHT TIME.  My wish for all of you– who desire a healthy, loving relationship– is that you are able to experience how truly remarkable it is to feel real love and support from the PERFECT MATCH that God has for you.

With love,

Tiff

Look Cool + Stylish on a Budget (plus some motivation)

Who is loving Twenty Twelve so far? 

I’m sure everyone is getting back on the program and with all the gifts, extra dinners and groceries that are bought during the holidays- we’re all cutting back not only on the eating, but on the spending too!  So, right now is the perfect time to chat about one of my favorite topics…BUDGET SHOPPING!  Actually, now is a great time to pick up any wardrobe basics you need.  Most stores are having huge sales through January. 

After I got married and finances were tight, I learned very quickly how to keep up my passion-for-fashion and look stylish on a fraction of my previous shopping budget!  Now,we have more options than ever for finding great deals on great clothing, accessories and shoes!  I’m planning on taping more webisodes on how to put together fabulous outfits from places like Nordstrom Rack, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx and H&M.  Those are the first 4 spots I hit!

WATCH WEBISODE:

Outfit under $150:

Slouchy Beanie $5- Forever 21, Long T-shirt $16.99- Target, Leggings $6.99- TJ Maxx, Boots $100- Marshall’s, Socks $5-Marshall’s, Hoop Earrings $10-Nordstrom Rack (jacket was a gift)

PLUS SOME MOTIVATION:

I got several naps over the weekend and woke up on Monday with an extra helping of MOTIVATION!  So, I decided to share some with you.  This topic was actually a post I had made on the SOS facebook page: BE CONSCIOUS OF NEGATIVE SELF-TALK. 

WATCH VIDEO:

 

An effective tool for staying positive- hang affirmations everywhere to remind yourself!  I love these by Louis Hay…

MAKE THE CAMERA YOUR BFF!

Ho Ho Ho SOS Supermodels!

Do you have a love/hate relationship with the camera? 

Do you cringe when a friend tags you in a photo on Facebook?

Well, all of that is about to change!

During this time of year there are photo op’s every time you turn around whether it’s around the tree with family or toasting at a party with your girlfriends- so I wanted to share with you a few simple tips for taking YOUR BEST PHOTOS!   I started modeling at 14 and have had PLENTY of years of practice in front of the camera and learned what to tweak to help you look your most flattering + confident!  Luckily, these days with the digital cameras we can see it immediately and do as many retakes as we want!  Cracks me up when my friends and I take photos together,  we all want to check out how we look right away!  Screw how your friends look- we look at ourselves in the photo! You know what I’m talking about:-)

WATCH WEBISODE:

Now the camera can be your new BFF!

This is the S-Curve pose that Christie Brinkley made famous!  I love that she wasn’t a toothpick.  Remember, swivel the hips and bring the shoulders back around.  This is by far, the most transforming photoposing tip!

REMINDER FOR MY CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY:

I will be offering reasonable PRIVATE SKYPE CONSULTATION + COACHING SESSIONS next year so I am giving one SOS blog subscriber 30 minutes with me via skype!  To enter you must be a follower or subscriber of this blog and send me a personal email to asktiffanyhendra@gmail.com with a short + sweet note saying you would like to spend 30 minutes with me.

FUN IDEA:

I shared this on Facebook and it really made an impact on several gals!  “NEW YEAR…TIME FOR A NEW RED WALLET! As the new year approaches- take the time to cleanse + organize areas of your life that need it so you do not take “clutter” and blockage into 2012. One place to start- HOW DOES YOUR PURSE LOOK? Is it filled with old receipts, gum wrappers? Is is tattered? WHAT ABOUT YOUR WALLET? A great gift you can buy for yourself this season is a NEW RED WALLET: “A new wallet symbolizes being ready to accept new wealth + colors in the red family draw prosperity to you.”-Feng Shui expert, Carol Olmstead.  I just got this new Michael Kors- I’m ready for more prosperity in 2012! Go for it girls!

Had to share this awesome quote from my bestie LeeAnne Locken-  “You are not a size, you are not a weight, you are not a color, you are not an age, you are not a trophy, you are not a doll, you are a HUMAN and you are BEAUTIFUL!! Never let others define you…you define yourself”!  Isn’t that a great mantra to carry into the New Year!?

I love getting comments + feedback- so don’t hesitate to let me know what you want to see!

Wishing you all a fun, fabulous, festive week ahead + a Very Merry Christmas!  Hanukkah began today so if you are celebrating– I wish you a HAPPY HANUKKAH!

Remember it’s all about us being more fabulous together! 

Love, Tiff

HATS. HEADSCARVES. HOPE.

Hello Gorgeous!

It’s Black Friday- the day all serious shopping addicts can get their “fix” on!  Are you braving the malls today?  If so, are you insane girl?  I truly hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and created special memories with good friends and loved ones.  

NEW WEBISODE:

A few viewers have asked me to give some options for cute winter hats while their hair is growing back after chemotherapy and I also show how to tie my signature headscarf look.  I realize this is a sensitive subject, but I believe these brave women should feel as fashionable as possible during this transition.  In 2011, there will be 2.6 million breast cancer survivors so I know this has touched all of our lives directly or indirectly in some way. Celebrating their courage and bravery today!

For Fall 2011, the hat must have- A Floppy Fedora!

OR grab a chic hat with feather accents like this one my BFF, Heidi is wearing by Jessica Simpson!

Have you tried the GLOW DIET?  

I have been diligent in eating blueberries every morning and have been adding more kale and sweet potatoes to our meals. Not only does your skin glow, but it amps up your energy too.    Remember, our skin takes a toll in winter with the extreme temp changes from outdoors to indoors with the brutal heaters so take special care of your beautiful face!  Change up your night cream and moisturizers.  Most of you know, I love the Arbonne RE9 line especially their night cream, but wanted to change things up.   For the past 3 weeks, I have been using VICHY’S Liftactiv Retinol HA Night Cream and give it 2 thumbs up.  It has a TRIPLE dose of  Hyaluronic Acid for an intense, stabilized filling action + New Generation Retinol (Retinol+Adenosine Complex) for an accelerated resurfacing effect.  Your skin looks plumper after the first use. SERIOUSLY!  I love the convenience of being able to pick it up at CVS!

BE INSPIRED:

I have to share a new beautiful song by my hubby called “My Number One”.  Take a few minutes to listen and be inspired!

http://soundcloud.com/aaronhendraproject/my-number-one

“It’s so important to tell those we love how important they are while we have the chance.  My new song, ‘My Number One’ talks about two lives that left this world without knowing, without hearing the words… It’s important today and everyday to tell those we love how much they mean to us”. ~AH

Sharing the beauty, style + inspiration,
