WHO YOU ARE: A Message To All Women [Video]

Happy FriYAY!

All week, I have stumbled upon blessing after blessing. It’s like God’s little winks letting us know we are on the right track. I just love how He does that! I call it living in “flow”.  This morning someone sent me this AHHHHH-mazing video and of course, I had to share it with all of you. As a confidence builder, affirmation addict (hence, #Tiffirmations) and advocate for empowering women to live their most authentic life– this video gave me chills, brought tears to my eyes and fueled me up for the day ahead. Please do yourself a favor and watch it, but not only watch it allow the message to sink down into your spirit.

Ready, Set… GOALS!

Hey Warrior Woman!

Can you believe we are a few days away from Christmas and 10 days from greeting 2017? I’m here to encourage and inspire you.. well, really to give you a good old fashioned kick in the butt to create a doable set of goals to ensure the coming year is a total success.  It’s such a special time of the year because we are closing one chapter and embarking on a new one. Write an amazing one, sista!

I also like to change out the word goal with “commitment” in certain areas. When you make a commitment, you alter and elevate your entire lifestyle! For example, “I commit to a healthy and fit lifestyle” and within that commitment you can make a goal like losing 10 lbs by doing spin, yoga and circuit training 4 times a week for the next two months.

LET’S DO THIS!

Think of the most important areas of your life and set goals and/or commitments for each of them along with specifics like timeframes, dates, dollar amounts and pounds. To get you started, here’s a list that I go by. Add any pertinent areas that are special to you:

  • Spiritual: Relationship with God. Do you give enough time to your spiritual life? Perhaps it’s setting a daily Divine appointment with God, a great devotional, book, Bible and journal. (I never cancel this appointment!)
  • Family: Do you want to become a parent? Pregnancy goals? Do you need to reach out to an estranged family member to heal that relationship?
  • Career: What do you wish to achieve in your career? Do you need to get a mentor in this area? Do you need to shadow someone successful in your field? Is there a class I need to take to learn more in my field?
  • Financial: Do you want to increase your yearly income? Save a certain amount? Pay off debt?
  • Physical: Do you need to get your hormones checked? Do you want to do yoga twice a week? Poor eating habits that need to be changed? Weight loss? New skincare routine?
  • Fun/ Pleasure/ Entertainment: Do you do entertaining things that make you laugh? Do you need to plan more girls nights? Have you been dreaming of a vacay to Cabo? Is there an art class you’ve been wanting to take? What’s the % of how serious and un-fun life is to how much your really enjoy life?
  • Attitude: Is there a mindset that you feel is holding you back? Are you negative Nellie? Do you come from a lack mentality or one of abundance? Are you a people pleaser?
  • Serving: Is there a charity you want to volunteer for? Could your church use your time in the nursery or leading a small group? Should I start a YouTube channel to share a message that will empower others?

Print out your goals and hang them wherever you will see them daily. Do a weekly and monthly “check in” to gauge your progress. It’s all about having a strategy for your life so you’re not wandering around aimlessly which creates low self-esteem and kills your confidence. I mean — don’t you feel like a total bada$$ when you achieve and check off a goal. Holla! 

Get a special calendar (aside from your iCal) or journal for your goals. One of my favorite things to do all year is picking up my new desk calendar. I get so excited about the new people I will meet, the new opportunities, the new experiences.

Set realistic and attainable goals! You have to believe that you can achieve it. For example, if you want to be in a body building competition you wouldn’t wait to start training 3 weeks before the date. That’s totally unrealistic.

Add in a vision board and positive affirmations to help keep you focused on the outcome and end results! Visualize yourself as already achieving these goals.

 

See yourself 10 lbs lighter.

See yourself happy and confident.

See yourself making an impact in the lives of others.

See yourself out of debt.

See yourself finishing the painting. 

See your YouTube Channel up and running. 

 

How does that make you feel? The feeling is really what you’re going after.

Goals are vital, but also keep an open heart so you will flow and enjoy the journey more. God usually has different plans for us that we have for ourself. Always invite Him into this process! This has been one of the biggest challenges of my life because as a former control freak — going with the flow was not something I did gracefully. Trust me, God’s plans are always bigger and better than my rinky dink plans.

IMG_3470

HELLO GORGEOUS!

Over the years, many of you have asked for my hair routine, but I really thought it would be too complicated to film. There’s a method to my madness and I hope this step X step tutorial is easy to follow! Even if you have a bob or lob (long bob) these steps will apply to you. Also, we all have different hair types so you may not need as many products as I do.

STEP 1: Thermal Protectant

STEP 2: Volumizing Product

STEP 3: Blowdry

STEP 4: Set top in velcro rollers

STEP 5: Curl bottom of hair [I’m using the extended XL  1 1/4″ barrel by Hot Tools]

STEP 6: Remove rollers and curl

STEP 7: Break up curls with a texturizing pomade [My favorite is Dear Clark’s Finishing Salve]

HAPPY JULY!  Take some time to think about how you want the month to look. We are halfway through 2016 and it’s a great time to look over the goals you set at new years. I wrote in my journal this morning and set some new goals for the month. Highly recommend!

DO YOU HAVE THE LADYBALLS TO WEAR MY TEE’S?

LADYBALLS_wide.jpg

Now, I get that many of you may not be able to wear this tee to a PTA meeting although that’s actually THE perfect place you need to! Let’s be real.

USE YOUR LADYBALLS: Means stop allowing people to walk all over you. Stand up for yourself and use your lady balls. Basically, don’t take any BS that people try to throw at you! Synonyms: Courage, Bravery.

I am just tickled to death to finally launch my product line today in celebration of the Real Housewives Of Dallas premier tonight on Bravo. This has been a dream of mine since the conception of SOS! I do not consider myself a wordsmith by any means, but as we all know- Southern women have a way with blending sweet-as-pie sayings with in-your-face sarcasm. Then, you add my belief in the use of affirmations and you get “Tiffirmations”.

More styles are coming like HOT MESSAGE, WALK TALL, FIERCE/FEAR and a few others you will hear me say on the show, but I don’t want to give it away!

GET YOURS TODAY ON OUR SHOPIFY STORE>>> http://thegivestore.myshopify.com

Double_Tee

SPIRITUAL SPITFIRE is available in white v-neck & slouchy tank! 

TIFFIRMATION_spiritualspitfire

 

Keep using yours!

Keep walking tall!

Keep shining that light!

SNEAK PEEK: My Wearable Inspiration

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!

Love, Tiff

 

 

SPRING 2016 STYLE GOALS

Pink_BCBG

HELLO GORGEOUS!

Happy March!  Are you as excited for Spring as I am? The weather has been amazing in Dallas and I’m ready to put away the drab coats and pull out the bright colors. A few days ago, I had the fun opportunity to attend Erika Jayne’s performance. (Thank you again 103.7 KVIL for the VIP treatment) She is one of the newest cast members of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills and WHOA- talk about a powerhouse!  As I was fishing through my closet to find just the right outfit that would be worthy of wearing to a performance by “the pretty mess” herself- I came across a bubblegum pink BCBG dress with the tags still on. Why do I keep bypassing this dress? Is it too bright? Was it out of my color comfort zone? I love pink, but I guess I just haven’t worn it much.

I always encourage you sistas to try new things. It was time to listen to my own advice. Trust me, I tried on several outfits and even showed my hubby trying to get him to convince me to wear anything BUT that hot pink dress. He loved the pink. As I stepped out of my comfort zone, this got me thinking of you and how we should all set some style goals for Spring!

This is the perfect time to take a Saturday and clear the clutter. Go through your closet and make an assessment of the items that need to stay, to be donated and items you need to add. Check out my oldie, but goodie video on closet organization. Often, we buy the same things over and over because we forget what’s in our closet. You don’t need 5 black pencils skirts, Tiff!

Here is an idea of some style goals I want to set. I’ll kickstart it then you adjust to your own personal needs and particular style:

  1. Only keep items that I absolutely love and that make me feel confident.
  2. Focus on a fit that flatters and become BFF’s with my tailor.
  3.  Buy fewer Boho chic items this year. (I have enough already!!)
  4. Purchase more modern & clean items and less embellished.
  5. Purchase more higher quality items that are investment pieces. It’s ok to allow for a lower end, trendy items to mix it up and help the check book.
  6. Explore bright colors that I haven’t worn in a while like canary yellow & hot pink.
  7. Embrace my figure and feel more comfortable wearing body con dresses to emphasize my waist. (Why not? I’ve been working out like a mad woman!)
  8. Add more camel & cognac like get a lightweight camel coat or trench.
  9. Check out Rent The Runway.
  10. Have fun going a bit blonder with the highlights.

 

Also, as I always mention- please take some time a the beginning of each month to set your intentions. We are shedding the winter blah’s and allowing for the rebirth of new ideas and goals. Grab your journal and get quiet. Think about what you really want. Visualize it. Pray about it. Part of my intentions for this month is to stay at peace no matter what.

Today’s #Tiffirmation Tweet: 

Don’t allow anyone or any situation to steal your peace. Stay grounded and don’t get caught up in other’s chaos or drama. Peace = Power. 

Wishing you all a stylish & blessed March!

Comment, share or tweet this so your girlfriends can set some style goals too. Maybe find a friend and do this together!

Love, Tiff

 

 

 

DEFLECT THE BS!

anti_bad_vibeshield

Good Morning Gorgeous!

My spiritual mentor and sisterella, Dr. Melanie Ross Mills posted this yesterday and I just had to share it with you all.

May the force be with you today! You have the power to deflect bad vibes, bad moods, narcissistic behavior, manipulation and not take others BS on as your own. 

CHOOSE TO DEFLECT.

SET THE HARD BOUNDARY.

DON’T GET CAUGHT UP IN THE TORNADO OF DRAMA.

STAY CENTERED.

LET GO OF YOUR PEOPLE PLEASING WAYS & STAY TRUE TO YOU.

 

My tweet this morning:

To maintain honest relationships w/ others we must 1st be true to ourselves. Living a lie breeds inauthenticity in every area. 

Again, you have the choice not take on other people’s BS.

 

Ok, go about being fabulous and free.

Love, Tiff
