BE FAB FRIDAY! It’s All About The F’s {New Webisode}

Tiff_Fall_closet

HAPPY FRIDAY FASHIONISTAS! 

I know what you are all thinking…“It’s about time Tiff!”  All good things come to those who wait.. patiently! LOL.  Trust me, I have missed making videos as much as you have missed seeing them. BUT, it’s been for good reason! Not only has my husband (cameraman) been traveling and crazy busy working on his own amazing projects, I have been focused on becoming a long-distant surrogate mama to a remarkable young woman, plus I’ve been working more with private clients. It’s been an art to keeping it all running smoothly and not to get spread too thin. I’ve been taking my own advice and taking regular “me” time!  That being said, the hard work is paying off and my SOS webseries (my baby) has officially become a toddler and TURNED 3 this month! {{{HAPPY DANCE}}} 

I feel like rambling so bear with me…

I’ve been reminiscing about this journey and wanted to encourage any of you who have the dream of starting a business out of a passion. Perhaps you have a message and want to share your voice with the world on a blog, but you are afraid. PLEASE start today! Whatever your passion or message is.. someone in the world needs it and we are all here to help the world in some way or another. Trust me, I was shakin’ in my wedge sandals when I posted my first rinky dink blog. It was about my fave mascara, Voluminous by Loreal. I crack up when I think of it now because I had soooooo much more in my spirit to share than just makeup tips. I still have much more to share! Look how fast 3 years has gone by. Don’t wait another day. I made a business plan, wrote a mission statement and just DID IT! Have I wanted to quit? A million times. What fuels me is YOU…..and the many women all over the world who may need a simple style tip or something deeper that reconnects them to Spirit. All of it is extremely important to me. Have I made mistakes? Heck yea! Ya dust yourself off and keep on keepin’ on. What is inside you that needs to be birthed? Every day that goes by, think of all the people missing out on your gifts.

Ok, back to FASHION! In the latest webisode, I share a handful of styles I think we can all incorporate into our Fall wardrobe without breaking the budget. Check it out:

 

 

Here’s a list of the items in the webisode. For under $200, I added these fresh new items from places like H & M, Forever 21,  Nordstrom Rack, Marshall’s + TJ Maxx. All other items are from my closet:

NEVER GIVE UP! SOS Celebrates 10,000 YouTubers

SOS_Youtube

Hey Style Seekers!

When I began taping videos on my blackberry in 2010, I wasn’t sure what the heck I was doing, but what I was completely sure of was that I had this deep desire to help women, all over the world, to see themselves as beautiful and confident.  YouTube was really starting to take off and become the “go to” spot on the web for those seeking info and tips on a variety of topics.  I had a successful TV career and loved working front of the camera, but I always had writers tell me what to say, directors telling me what to do and lighting/camera/sound people to make it all happen and look good.  I believe I mentioned this before, but the first light set up we had in the closet was a nightstand lamp with a white sheet hanging in front of it as a diffuser. I’m giggling to myself when I think back at Aaron and I trying to create a set with absolutely no equipment. After lots and lots and LOTS of trial +  error, I figured out how to write a decent sounding segment and produce an effective webisode from start to finish. I brushed up on the changing industry and took some courses with THE hosting and branding expert, Marki Costello. Plus, being the nerd that I am, I taught myself how to edit on iMovie and now Final Cut Pro. I’m surprised I still have a full head of hair! I wanted to pull it all out many times. But when you have the will, you find the way…and giterdone. 

Why am I sharing this?  

I’m very excited that my YouTube Channel reached 10,000 subscribers this week! When I created my YouTube account, I didn’t know anything about subscribers or how to brand yourself or how to build this platform. Hello, my name was Tiffany “Clueless” Hendra! In 2002, I stepped away from my career in Hollywood to focus on my Spiritual journey and to figure out the real assignment God had for me. Whoa- again, I was clueless and had no idea the rollercoaster of a journey I was about to embark on!

As my vision to help women became more clear and in focus, I went back to my first love- fashion- and started working at a woman’s boutique as a buyer and image consultant. Then, I began studying skincare after a devastating bout with hormonal acne and became a skincare consultant. During this time, I also began instructing a teen girls self-development class. But, the core of my dream was to work in front of the camera again on a show that reached the masses. Today, with tears in my eyes and gratitude to God, I celebrate you all and the 10K people on YouTube who have joined my mission. 

If you have a dream or nudge in your gut to do something…

DO NOT IGNORE IT!

DO NOT WAIT TO HAVE IT ALL FIGURED OUT!

Start taking baby steps today and stop caring what others may think. Hey- I actually put crappy videos on the world wide web for all to see. Call me naive and cray cray-crazy! My first blog looked like a first grader did it. Even putting yourself and your thoughts out there on a blog is daunting. But, a bit of crazy combined with guts, purpose and passion– can lead to fulfilling and exciting things. Now, I never dreamed women would be hiring me to help them create their video content and build their YouTube Channels. Thank God my passion or my crazy overpowered my naivety and I just kept putting one foot in front of the other. Remember, it’s ok to start simple. Just put your idea to paper and write a mission statement. Here’s mine from 2005:  

Today, young women have more opportunity than ever, but at the same time, more obstacles to face. I have a responsibility to educate, inspire, and empower women through my testimony and life experiences.  It is my mission to be a guide to women, especially young women, who may not have the parental or social guidance they so desperately need.  Tiffany Hendra, 02.03.05

Did I ever feel like giving up? Of course!  

Did I doubt myself? Heck yes!

But, I kept praying, believing and hoping. Even if it feels like all you have is a tattered thread of hope at times, keep hanging on to that thread. That thread can change everything. 

Thank you all for joining me on this journey.

Love, Tiff

WHAT MESSAGE ARE YOU TELLING THE WORLD?

Tiff_vlogger

{My new favorite distressed jeans by Rich & Skinny}

Hello Summer Baby!

As I’ve shared before, I have gone through several periods in my life where I battled low self-esteem, poor body image and overall crappy confidence.  I know how it feels to look in the mirror and not like that reflection staring back at you. It effects every aspect of your life.  The message I was telling the world was that I was an unhappy girl and didn’t think I was worth it. Our image, body language and the look in our eye speaks volumes to the world before we ever open our mouth. The first recollection was at about 12 or 13 and people would say, “Oh you’re so pretty you should smile more”.   Hmmm- okay, but I had the ugliest crooked teeth and ended up wearing braces for 4 long years!  I also had skinny knock-kneed legs and to top it off I had a permed mullet in junior high.  *LAUGH OUT LOUD EVERYBODY*  The journey to loving myself and being confident in the fact that I am a child of God has been a long one and I believe my new message to the world speaks of grace, joy, self-worth, self-love and overall confidence. At least that’s what I intend to project even when I’m having “one of those days”. Thank you for joining me on the journey here through SOS.

 

MY QUESTION FOR YOU TODAY IS…..

WHAT MESSAGE ARE YOU TELLING THE WORLD?

 

A few days ago, a production company asked me to put myself on tape telling why I started blogging and doing videos.  I never really considered myself a blogger until the term “vlogger” was coined.  A vlogger is a video blogger, in case you weren’t sure.  Just like a blogger shares their experiences, knowledge, life lessons and tips, a vlogger does the same, but just speaks it on video or webcam.  Since my background is in television and working as an on-camera personality– this was a no brainer for me when I realized my true passion was to help women.  Check it out….

 

Can’t decide what nail color to wear?  ROCK TWO!   Allure has a great how-to-video achieving fabulous OMBRE nails.

HELLO MARCH {New Style Webisode}

Hey Lovelies,

One of the questions I have been asked the most lately is how to start incorporating some fun Spring items in your wardrobe while it’s still chilly outside.  Here’s 5 simple ways to make a smooth + stylish transition:

 

Here’s the beauty products I mentioned:

Spring_nailpolish{Bright Nail Polish}

loreal_legloss

{Loreal LeGloss in Watermelon Crush}

Rimmel_kate#17

{Rimmel London Kate Moss Collection #17}

PF_mineral wear blush{Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Blush in Rose}

neutrogena_airbrushtan{Neutrogena Micro Mist Airbrush Self Tanner in DEEP}

Loreal_sublime{Loreal Sublime Bronze in DEEP- gives you instant color + a touch of shimmer}

milani_baked bronzer{Milani Baked Bronzer in Soleil #5}

 

To celebrate Spring and You, why not treat yourself to a fun new accessory, pair of shoes or at least a new lipgloss this weekend!  It’s funny how happy my new emerald scarf makes me feel.  A scarf is an easy and inexpensive way to spruce up your wardrobe!

Remember to shop your closet before you hit the stores.  There are several styles that are carrying over from the past few seasons.

Walk Tall,
