Shut Up + Give A Woman Her Moment! || Candid Video

 

 

Happy Sunday Sista!

This Instagram story has struck a chord and caused some panties to get in a wad so I wanted to share it here.

I am all about igniting change so here ya go.

In my robe, no makeup with morning crusties in my eyes so no judgement, k.

I’ve had so many women comment and message me that they accept the challenge and admit they are guilty of this.

What about you?
Do tell..

It’s Time To Move On + Cross The Bridge

FullSizeRender-93

Happy Humpday Hotties!

The aspect of SOS I love the most is when women who reach out sharing their heart and journey with me. It’s like a beautiful gift I get to unwrap when I open that email or message on social media. The love and inspiration exchanged comes back around to me full circle reminding me we are all in this together!

One message I received yesterday just had to be shared here with you all. The day after the #RHOD reunion aired, I posted the above bridge photo with the caption, “a walk in nature is all that’s needed sometimes to reset our spirit. This bridge is symbolic to me today…MOVING ON. What bridge do you need to cross over today and move on from?”

A lovely lady who follows me on Twitter began reading and watching my SOS content as the Bravo show was airing. She wrote me this yesterday and it touched me. It’s truly a testament on never giving up and how to face our circumstances head on with positivity and gratitude instead of getting stuck and depressed by them….

 

Hi Tiff!! First let me thank you for posting REAL pics on social media showing that you live what you teach and preach!  Not pics of you and Aaron partying or wearing fashions that women like me want, but can’t’ afford. You show us how to do it on a budget!

I get up everyday and look at the picture you posted of the bridge. 

I cross over it and forget about my broken heart, my relationship with my son and how I may never have one with him because I blew it and how my mom gets worse everyday with her MS.

I cross over the bridge and minute by minute forget the man who broke my heart and thank God for restoring my relationship with my son and thank Him that I can be here for my mom. 

It’s easier some days than others!

God has truly given me this time to get healthy and put my life in perspective and to prepare me for the man He has for me.

Like your tweet said a few days ago, “I’m a VESSEL not a VICTIM!” 

 

I pray this encourages you to pick up your feet and pick up your chin. I view God as the bridge toward our Destiny! Who wants to stay on the wrong side forever? Yes, moving on and crossing the bridge takes courage, trust and faith. Aren’t you curious what life is like on the other side? For me, it has been a life of more joy, more freedom, more love, more adventure. That’s my hope for us all.

Love, 

Tiff

 

 

LOVE Your Mother On Mother’s Day! By My Sister Natalie Bolton

She.
She is.
She is beautiful.
She is life.

This is a “skincare” blog, yes. But my work would be insignificant if I didn’t address the things that matter to me most. And those things are Spirit, Health, Family, Character, and Love. By cultivating and nurturing these things in others, external vibrant beauty for my clients is the easy part.
So this “beauty” blog today is dedicated to women.

Mothers.
Goddess Warriors.
Protectors.
Visionaries.
Lovers.
And the Doers.

Mother’s Day is approaching this weekend and we all have different feelings and different experiences and reactions when we think of this day.
For some it causes pain. For others it brings forth gratitude. And for many it brings about anger and a sense of feeling motherless.

But we are in this together. We are all connected.

Let us celebrate the women who have poured into us strength of character, wisdom, and love. Personally, if it weren’t for my mother I don’t know how actually broken I would be.
If you are a woman, you are a mother. You may not have children walking around, playing, or asking you for advice, but you are a creator. We are all creators. Cherish and keep on incubating your dreams, visions, and beauty only you can give us. We need you.

If you can no longer call your mom to just say, “Hey” take a bit of comfort in knowing that woven into your beauty are fibers of her greatness. She is in you and she is with you.
To all the prayin’ mommas out there, “Thank You!” Today we celebrate your greatness. We delight in your power and strength. And all the beauty you pour into the world we want you to know that it flows from your heart and glistens through your skin. You are exquisite and you are Divine.”

The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world.

“Cheers, pretty mommas!”

And as always, if you have any questions regarding skincare or would like to book an appointment you can email me at: natalie@beautyboutiquela.comor call (818) 506-6400.

 

With all my gratitude,

GIRLTIME IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH: Plan Some This Week

Hey Sistas!

Recently, one of my besties sent me this great reminder. I read this a few years ago, but in each season of our life messages hit us differently! I wanted to share it with all of you to encourage you to plan regular time with girlfriends who lift you up, challenge you to be the best you can be, who spotlight your strengths and love you unconditionally. Over the past few weeks I’ve been blessed by several empowering and uplifting moments with girlfriends. This is truly the best anti-depressant and it’s even good for our overall health. Read on…

INTERESTING BIT ABOUT FEMALE RELATIONSHIPS.  They Teach It at Stanford:

In an evening class at Stanford University, the last lecture was on the mind-body connection — the relationship between stress and disease.

The speaker (head of psychiatry at Stanford) said, among other things, that one of the best things that a man could do for his health is to be married to a woman. … . whereas for a woman, one of the best things she could do for her health was to nurture her relationships with her girlfriends.

At first everyone laughed, but he was serious. Women connect with each other differently and provide support systems that help each other to deal with stress and difficult life experiences. Physically, this quality “girlfriend time” helps us to create more serotonin — a neurotransmitter that helps combat depression and can create a general feeling of well being.

Women share feelings, whereas men often form relationships around activities. We share from our souls with our sisters/mothers, and evidentlythat is very GOOD for our health. He said that spending time with a friend is just as important to our general health as jogging or working out at a gym.

There’s a tendency to think that when we are “exercising” we are doing something good for our bodies, but when we are hanging out with friends, we are wasting our time and should be more productively engaged? Not true. In fact, he said that failure to create and maintain quality personal relationships with other humans is as dangerous to our physical health as smoking!

So every time you hang out to schmooze with a gal pal, just pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself for doing something good for your health!
We are indeed very, very lucky. So…. let’s toast to our friendship with our girlfriends. Evidently, it’s very good for our health. 

Love,

Tiff
