I AM… A BIT BOSSY // New Video

Hello Gorgeous!

It has been an amazing, life changing, sometimes frustrating, work in progress to build my brand and Sanctuary Of Style. The tool that has helped me the most is video!  I crack up when I look back at some of the very first SOS videos and how green I was. But, dang it— I had drive and passion! With those two things, we can accomplish anything even when all the pieces aren’t in place and things aren’t perfect. I shot my first video on my phone without a light kit or fancy editing.  Now, I not only coach/mentor women, but I also get to teach people how to get started sharing their message on video! Regardless of your career or ministry, video is a wonderful way for people to get to know you and your business.

With that said, I’m excited to finally have a new video sharing my mission: 

 

I would love to hear from you!

What have you learned on this journey with me?

Have you made lasting changes? Like what?

 

Did you get my FREE ebook? As a gift for joining the mailing list at TiffanyHendra.com, you will receive my ebook of 101 Affirmations and a list of “I Am’s”. I’m a firm believer in speaking powerful words over yourself on a daily basis.

You will be happy to know I am prepping the closet to film new videos! I know, I know…you girls have waited long enough! 

Love & Ladyballs,

NO MATCHY, MATCHY! Tiff’s 5 Style Rules

Hey Sassy Pants,

Thanks to Real Housewives of Dallas and Twitter, we have several new style sistas in the sisterhood! Welcome to my hood! A few ladies have mentioned going back through the old blog posts and videos. It’s so fulfilling knowing that all the content I’ve shared over the past 5 years is still empowering women. Someone asked what my personal style rules and I thought “I must have a video for that” and voila, I sure do! Even though this was filmed in 2012, these rules still apply:

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 THE WEBISODE:

Make sure to share this with your girlfriends!

Love + Lipgloss,

TUNE IN NOTICE TONIGHT: My Past For A Purpose On Access Hollywood

 

Happy Monday Sistas!

You’ve heard me say a time or two that there are “no expiration dates on our dreams”.  I just experienced this in a major way! Tonight, you will hear how I am owning my past and using it all for a purpose on ACCESS HOLLYWOOD at 6:30 CST. What a surreal moment to be interviewed in my old stomping grounds by host Kit Hoover! It was such a blessed and heartfelt conversation about the sexual abuse I have overcome. Kit has two daughters and was totally invested in the interview and how we can empower young women with my story. Amazing how God can use a drama-filled reality show for His glory.

IMG_2162

The day was extra special because I shared this experience with my sister, Natalie. We moved to LA together and did the hustle and struggle together for years.

Also, make sure to tune in to Real Housewives Of Dallas tonight at 9pm CST. It gets really heated and I have had enough of all the drama. You will see a side of me you have and never will see on my videos! LOL. I’m human and this is a REALity show. I didn’t hold anything back, but please give me some grace when you watch! I even scare myself a bit. Eeeek.

If you’re on Twitter, make sure to tweet me and let me know your thoughts! @TiffanyHendra

 

CHIVVIS

I must give a huge shout out to brilliant stylist Jeanette Chivvis of Chivvis Styles. She has gone above and beyond to make sure LeeAnne Locken and I look our best for all our press and appearances. She’s a fellow #SpiritualSpitfire too!

Have a fabulous week. 

Love & Ladyballs,

Own Your Journey + Stop Living In Shame: Tiffany Hendra Addresses Her Racy Acting Past via Bravotv.com

 

Hey Sistas!

I knew God would convict me of the exact right time to open up about being raped at 16 and to address a few of the choices I made in my career. Now, you know the deeper reason why SOS is so important to me:

 

The Real Housewives of Dallas’ Tiffany Hendra is addressing the speculation about her acting days head-on by opening up about headlines that claim she starred in pornography, noting that the projects in question never veered into that territory. ‘Now’s the right time to address it because I am so ready. I am so willing every day,’ she told The Daily Dish about her resume’s unwanted attention.

“All of that [attention is] gonna come and the stuff that I’ve been through with this ‘porn thing’ and my acting career in L.A. and now just starting to share my story about being sexually assaulted [at age 16]…I knew all of that was gonna come,” she added. “I knew it, and I knew it was going to inspire people, so I really didn’t care.”

POWER DRESS FOR PRESS

[On set for our Entertainment Tonight interview with Brice Sander at Lisa Vanderpump’s SUR restaurant]

What a whirlwind it’s been the past few weeks! The awesome kind of whirlwind with plenty of ‘pinch me’ moments. I had a plush room at the Four Seasons and dinner at Mastro’s- my favorite LA steak place while sitting across from other fellow Bravo family members like Dorinda, Ramona & Jules from RHONY and Shep & Cameron from Southern Charm. When you’re told that you and your cast mates are heading to LA for a big press tour, the panic starts with what to wear! Thanks to the brilliance of superstar stylist Jeanette Chivvis– the panic turned to peace & power.

Jeanette has this intuitive aspect to her styling. She just knows what is going to look most fabulous on you. I squealed when she showed me this canary yellow dress by Pink Lucy! It fit me perfect and I just knew it was THE dress for our Access Hollywood and Entertainment Tonight interviews.  As part of SOS, you know I’m a firm believer in the power of color. I felt happy, radiant and strong in this yellow. Day 1- a total style success!

Day 2- We had a full day of press junkets and red carpet interviews at the NBC Universal Summer Press Day. About 200 media outlets from all over the world are there to get the latest scoop on NBC Universal’s new stars and programming. My bestie, LeeAnne Locken and I were paired together for all the interviews so we made sure to coordinate our ‘power’ outfits. Jeanette had this stunning red custom made for me from London and she pulled this amazing white jumpsuit from Escada. To finish my look, she added jewelry from local Dallas designer, Harper Hallam. Nailed it! Oh and talk about a pinch me moment- looking over at the press booth next to you to see Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandell. I know what you’re thinking and yes, Heidi Klum is even more statuesque, stunning and stylish in person!

Back in Dallas, we started our local press tour with the lovely Meredith Land for NBC5 at the hotspot, Bistro 31.  Jeanette pulled this off-the-chain Elizabeth & James dress from Rent The Runway. Ok…seriously, I want to have this dress made in every color! It fit me like a glove and was super comfy. All about class, power and great fit.

Then, we were off to Culturemap Dallas for a fun interview with the fab Dawn Neufeld. Can we talk about my ridiculously fabulous new nude Louboutin’s?  Your dress needs to feel powerful, but your shoes should as well. I treated myself to a new pair specifically for this press tour. A great nude open toe heel is a life saver! If you do not own a pair put that at the top of your shopping list for Spring. I also love Stephanie’s patent nude Loubou’s. Really the perfect shoe. Period.

Our final stop was back at Bistro 31 for a very interesting interview with the Dallas Observer. I decided to change up my look and absolutely love a great jumpsuit! Love this kelly green, twist neck jumpsuit by BCBG is going to be my go-to for 2016. The Loubou’s worked again!  Are you getting it now..the importance of color when you’re going to a special event? Cary, Stephanie and I just ‘pop’ in this photo. Whether it’s a job interview, a wedding, important event or hot date- YOUR power color is always best! A great LBD always looks chic, but I always go for color first.

The cherry on top of my big day was running into my BFF, Heidi. I love that our outfits matched! She was there for a quick happy hour with her hubby. Her colorful scarf style maxi sundress was so fun, sexy and fresh. Great tip: Throw a light sweater over your shoulders for the unpredictable Spring weather.

Our final Dallas press day began at the Dallas Morning News with the fun & sassy Dawn Burkes. We were told we could go more casual for this interview. I tried something I always want to do, but always forget. I added a contrasting shoe with my fabulous yellow blouse. It was so fun and I highly recommend it! Cary had an important surgery right after this interview and I love that she’s rockin’ her scrubs. It is REAL life!

LeeAnne finished the day at CW-33. I chose this nude blush flowy dress by BCBG. Another great tip for doing on camera interviews or if you are on stage for a speaking engagement- more than likely you will be sitting in a tall directors chair or bar stool. Make sure to never wear a super short dress. Not flattering on the legs!

Hot_mess_tiff.jpg

After years of sharing my heartfelt and somewhat sarcastic affirmations – now cleverly called #TIFFIRMATIONS– I’m tickled to death to finally launch my product line starting with T-shirts like any good Bravo housewife would. LOL!

On April 11th to celebrate the premier of Real Housewives Of Dallas, I’ll be launching a limited edition of the first 2 styles:

SPIRITUAL SPITFIRE & USE YOUR LADYBALLS (also available in V-neck) 

Double_Tee

 

If you’ve been a part of the sista’hood for a while, you know how passionate and down right obsessed I am with positive affirmations. I write them all over the place, put them on vision boards, hang them on my bathroom mirror so why not wear them too?!  It’s all about using every tool possible to help us keep our minds on track so we can be our MOST FABULOUS!

I’m so excited about this message too. No more fear, be fierce instead.  I’ll be releasing FIERCE & Hot Mess/Message later in April:

Fierce_tiff

 

This is the beginning of the product line I have been dreaming of and developing the past few years. It’s all an extension of what I’ve built with you all here on SOS!  ((Chills)) Can’t believe it’s finally happening. Many of you have been asking for tee’s and journals for a while. Thanks for your patience. Timing is everything! The time is NOW.

I must thank you all for inspiring me to grow and step out of my comfort zone. We’re all walking tall together! 

The first 2  #TIFFIRMATION TEE’S will be available on my Shopify store via http://www.tiffanyhendra.com on April 11th.

Go grab your lady balls and dare to be brave!

TOGETHER WE CAN ROCK THE WORLD! Happy International Women’s Day

 

one_woman

I honor each of you today. Many thoughts have flooded my mind regarding International Women’s Day. Most of these are reposted from last year, but still hold true today:

  • My heart is filled with gratitude to my mother for instilling the “you can do anything you dream of” mentality in my sister and I.
  • Deep admiration & respect toward my mom for always working hard in her job and even harder at home to create a safe home for us as kids. She never hired a housekeeper and we rarely had a babysitter. She’s 67 and still happily working.
  • Deep admiration for my Japanese grandmother, Hannah, for choosing to leave her family and career as a clothing designer to raise her family in America.

26321_341738453371_7381583_n

  • Pride and respect for my multi-talented younger sister who has followed her dreams and remained true to herself while finding her calling. It takes guts to try new things and change careers. She’s one of the gutsiest gals I know! If you’re in LA, make sure to go see her at the Beauty Boutique. Your skin will thank you!

11350578_10206902003289441_7362099743643444421_n

  • As a young woman living in the US, I’ve been able to work as an entrepreneur (I began modeling at 14 and started my 1st business at 16 doing graphic art, logos and designing T-shirts for companies), pave my own way and ask for the pay I’m worth all while trying to make a difference.  This overwhelms me! Again, I thank my parents for teaching us to fly and supporting all our crazy, but creative ideas. 
  • I’m more passionate than ever about instilling belief, vision, confidence and positivity in young women to prepare them for a successful future. There are several teenage girls that God has trusted me with mentoring. This has transformed my life probably more than it has theirs.
  • This blog is proof that we are blessed as women in the US with the ability to share our voice, ideas and thoughts.  Women in many countries are still forced to remain silent.
  • I echo the sentiment in an Instagram photo from Marie Forleo (one of my favorite biz mentors) which said, “Ambition is beautiful”. Her caption read, “You were born to create and contribute. Don’t let the noise of the world drown out the work your soul came here to do”. That goes for the boss lady doing the hustle and the stay-at-home mom raising future leaders. You do your thing and do it well!
  • I’ve been praying the Prayer Of Jabez (1 Chronicles 4:10) for several years and now- I have been given a larger platform and territory with the Real Housewives of Dallas. My intention is to inspire even more women to go for their dreams and the love they deserve. I have to share our latest commercial promo! Talk about Texas Girlpower..

 

TAKE A MOMENT TO THINK OF ALL THE WOMEN IN YOUR LIFE WHO HAVE MADE AN IMPACT ON YOU.

Silently say a prayer for them and send them love. 

May this love elevate us all to live a higher life and be so filled up that we have enough to give out to other girls and women.

Love, Tiff

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. www.internationalwomensday.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!

throwing hat

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
