Girlfriends and Cocktails-Making Time for Yourself

Girlfriends and Cocktails, what could be better and more fun! This video is part 2 of my St. Augustine Road Trip with my girlfriend from San Diego, CA. Veronica and I have been friends for over 10 years, as our children went to high school together. This video has some fun cocktail tips and photos of inside the St. Augustine Distillery. I am going to leave you with the link to Part 1 of my video and the St. Augustine Distillery if you want to know more or are planning a trip to the area (highly recommend the tour).

Girls Trip to St. Augustine, FL (Part 1)
St. Augustine Distillery

I think it is so important to take some time for yourself! As women, many times we are so focused on external matters that we forget or ignore our own needs. It doesn’t matter if it is home life, children, work, extended family or friends, so many times we focus on others and completely miss the calls for help and attention that our body and mind are screaming at us.

What is the answer to attending to others as well as looking after yourself? First take time to think, breath and listen to your inner-self. You can do that through prayer, meditation, exercise and long hot bath or shower… There is no right or wrong way to collect yourself unwind. None of these ways are restricted by time, resources or location; we all need to bathe, we all have a floor, chair or log to sit and contemplate, we can all get out and walk around the block alone and prayer can be done on the run, in a car or while doing a chore. There should be no excuses for not weekly, daily or at least monthly checking in with yourself and make sure you are good.

The next step is to act and answer your physical and mental needs; sometimes we just need to get away and not worry about anything. Take a trip with your girlfriend(s), go to a day spa, lunch and shopping, buy yourself a little goody (even if you have to plan and safe, you are worth it!) Going with someone can be very therapeutic. Make it a monthly, weekly or annual thing, depending on how detailed, long and expensive your plans are. Now you have something to look forward to. When life gets hectic, stressful and repetitive you know that you have an escape coming. If you can’t wait to find something small to recharge yourself or try step one again.

I hope you found this post helpful. I want you to go away with the notion that you are wonderful and all your hard work, even if it seems unappreciated does not go unnoticed. If you are feeling forgotten, take back yourself and unplug if only for a few hours, to remind yourself that you are fabulous and so worth it!

Please don’t forget to check out my two videos on my girl’s trip. It might inspire you to do something fun too. I hope it does!

How to be a Good Friend-Kindness Challenge


Today I wanted to talk about something important to me and that is Friendship and what makes a good friend. By luck, it ties into my 2017 Goals/Promises that I made to myself. If you want to hear me talk in detail about Friendship and Goals make sure you check out my YouTube Video. I hope this video inspires you to take my Kindness Challenge and incorporate some type of kindness goals into your daily routine and see if your life and outlook doesn’t change for the better. Let me know in the comments if you are going to try a little more kindness in your life. I would love to hear from you. Please give me a “Thumbs Up” if you like this video and don’t forget to subscribe. Keep reading here for my list of what I think makes a good friend and what my 2017 Goals are.

Here are my ideas on How to be a Good Friend; I’m reading a great book Stiletto Network by Pamela Reyckman and she talks about how women need to support and uplift other women in the workforce and in daily life. She also covers how it is our responsibility to help and support other women to succeed in their goals and dreams. This has always been a philosophy of mine and has been an important part of my work, in coaching, styling designing and being a friend. I want to see others succeed and if I can do something to help that then that is an accomplishment for me as well as the person striving for self-improvement. Here is the list of 5 qualities I find important in being a good friend.

  1. Never lose yourself in a friendship.
  2. A friendship should be reciprocal.
  3. A good friendship stands the test of time.
  4. Real friends don’t gossip about their friends.
  5. Be confident in who you are; celebrate other friends good fortune. Be kind!

I originally posted a video in January that caught my viewers up on what had been going on with me and then went through my goals/promises for 2017. I think it might have been a bit too much information and many people missed the goal part; which I thought was really motivating. In that video, I am going to go through my Goals/Promises for 2017 and I totally changed it up and decided to do something new and exciting. It is an experiment that my whole family is going to join in on. If it works I think it will be life-changing. We would love to have you join us.

What I have decided to do is cut the video in half and re-post the goal part with some updates on our progress. I am also going to add some of my thoughts and feelings about being a good friend, mentor and kind person. This leads directly to the goals our family is trying to implement this year and the promises that we are keeping for ourselves. Here are what we are trying to do this year 2017 Goals/Promises:

  1. Surround my life with kindness.
  2. Forgive my transgressors.
  3. Be Frustrated, not angry and then let it go.
  4. Walk away from negativity.
  5. Positive Mental Attitude.

I am going to leave a link to both of the videos so that you can check out the first have of the Catch-up video if you want to find out some of the things that are going on in my life right now. If not I would go straight to the second video and get a full picture of our goals and some of my ideas on friendship and kindness. It is my hope that this website and my YouTube channel is a place of kindness, growth and safe exchange of ideas. I don’t want anyone to feel that they cannot share a part of them self for fear of being shamed or ridiculed; including myself. Believe me there is nothing you can say that I have probably not heard straight to my face before, so if your goal is to hurt me the written word on a blog will come far from doing it; I’m a lot tougher than that and lived through a lot worse; don’t waste your time.

To see details, check out the link to both of my video: Catch-Up & 2017 Goals/Promises My newest video with the updated goals only and friendship addition is here: How to be a Good Friend-Kindness Challenge

Spring Floral Hostess Gift

diy giftI had a neighborhood ladies lunch to attend today and wanted to make my hostess gift. I try to make a gift when I can, if I have the time. I thought I would share how I made it. I also shared a very special memory of what makes spring special to me and why I like making gifts for all occasions.

My favorite spring time memory is May Day and leaving flowers in a handmade basket on my grandmother’s doorstep. I lived with my grandparents from the age of 7 to 13 due to my mother giving me up. These were some of the most peaceful recollections of my childhood. I love and cherish the memories of my time living with my grandparents and all they did for me. I love spring time flowers and how much that simple homemade gift filled both my grandmother’s and my hearts with joy. This is why I always try to give gifts from the heart and why homemade gifts mean so much to me. I would love it if you shared your favorite spring time story.

500 Subbies Ask Me Anything!

Snapshot_11I had a Giveaway on my YouTube channel for my subscribers to thank them for supporting me and to celebrate reaching over 500 subscribers. I gave away a wonderful tote filled with all sorts of beauty and fashion items; if you would like to see go and check out the video, I will leave a link shortly. To be a part of the Giveaway I asked my subscribers, you did have to be a subscriber to take part, I asked my subscribers to ask me any question they would like to know about me. Since I am a newish channel I thought this would be a fun way to get to know each other better. It is my goal with Embellish Life to create a community of individuals that can learn and grow together and feel comfortable together. I feel that the only way you can do that is if you put yourself out there and are willing to let yourself be known. Show everyone what you are all about, I think false assumptions are the biggest mistakes people can make and can also get people into the most trouble… You know what they say about “Assume” ing anything… LOL Anyway, even though the giveaway is all over my video on all the answers to all the great questions that my subscribers asked me is all completed. It is a great insight into who I am, what I am doing with Embellish Life, a little bit about my family and how I got to where I am today; if you are interested.

Finding The Perfect Man

Snapshot_28
Sometimes it is hard enough to find the perfect shoes to go with an outfit… Finding the perfect man, I can’t even imagine what it would be like now to date… I watch my oldest son and have mixed emotions. I raised him to be a gentleman and a perfect catch and many times I see him passed over, for the “jerk”. I found my perfect guy 36 years ago and although I did know it at the time circumstance and timing allowed ten years to pass before we actually married. We did date 6 of the 10 years and remained friends the other 4 years so our story is unique, as is everyone’s love story; that is what makes them so much fun to hear. Want to hear my story on how I found my perfect guy? You can here the whole story on my YouTube video: Soulful Sunday – Finding the Perfect Guy!

I am not one to give out dating or marriage advice per se; it is my personal opinion, unless you are a professional, there are just too many unknown variables that can influence who is perfect for one person to the next. That being said, the one constant that I have found for myself and the other long term relationship people I have encountered in my lifetime is one very important ingredient is being with your best friend! Making any relationship work ANY RELATIONSHIP takes compromise, listening (from both parties), work (from both sides but some times not the same amount at the same time), and personally I think the biggest one is FRIENDSHIP. To me without a strong foundation of friendship all the rest will just prop up a week structure; maybe for a long time if you work really hard at it, maybe forever, then the question is, are you happy? I think when you are involved in a long term relationship with your best friend all the work, and there is work involved, is way more fun at times and tolerable in other times. Well, I guess for not giving advice that was a lot of it… Or maybe just a long winded way of saying, you may have all sorts of criteria for what is the “Perfect Guy” is, make sure the one thing that is on the top of your list is he is your Best Friend and a lot of the rest will just fall into place!

My Big Move- CA vs. FL

soulfulfunday
Moving from California to Florida was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I am no stranger to making a big move with my family. We move from Southern California to Northern California; where we lived for about 5 years and we also made an expat move to Switzerland for about 2 years when the boys were younger. So that was actually a double move if you want to count the big move back. For some reason moving from the West Coast, that I knew all my life to the East Coast was a much bigger deal than I had anticipated; and I am relatively easy going when it comes to environmental changes, making friends and setting up house in a new area.

Want to find out more about the differences I found between CA vs. FL? How the big move affected me? How any big change can be tackled; even if they are thrown at you one after another? Find out what my crazy first year was like in FL and how I lived to tell about it; all while I unpack my last shoe box, ONE YEAR LATER! You can see it all on my YouTube video! Don’t forget to check out my links below to see the other places that you can find me.

Happy Birthday Haul

birthday haul

There is nothing better than sharing a birthday with a girlfriend! I believe any good birthday should be celebrated all month long. Keeping with that tradition as closely as I can my partner in crime and fellow August Birthday Girl spent her Birthday at a cute little Tea House, of shorts, or maybe you would call it a “girly luncheon” spot, whatever you would label it, it was a totally perfect place for us to start off our Birthday celebration. We didn’t even let the deluge of afternoon rain dampen our spirits. Later that week it was my turn to pick the activity and that is when we hit the shops. We did a vareity of boutique and chain stores, nonsense and utility shopping to make the day not only festive but also very productive!

How I Work From Home

Entrapanuer resume

I created a video that covered how I worked from home and all the home based businesses that I created over the years. I always had an entrepreneur spirit even as a teen model and young adult with my own personal shopping and closet organizing business. When I was in college I had my first clothing line and designed a small line of sports wear. By the time my oldest son Drake was 10 months old we decided that staying home with him made the most financial sense for our family and I started Bright Beginnings, a home based day care. When he was about 2.5yrs Bright Beginnings became a custom wreath business where I made birth announcements and hooded baby towel sets. I sold them at fairs and online. As the Internet started to take on a bigger presence I also started another business as a personal shopper for mothers, shopping for toys and collectables.

During this time I was also noticing an increasing tension among the online community of working vs at home moms (or parents). I found it very counter productive. I wanted to do something to defuse the tension and start a dialog going that would benefit everyone and eventually help the people we all wanted to protect and that was the children. So I started a non-profit called HIPP- Home Income Producing Parents. We had a huge web presence for about 6 years and I was very proud of that. Many people had advised me that I should have made the business for profit but that was not what I was about and many of the people that needed my help had the extra cash anyway so it kind of defeated the purpose to take what little money they had to help them. That didn’t leave me feeling warm and fuzzy, so non-profit it was.

I had many Home Based Businesses; a lot of them revolved around supporting women, fashion, style, beauty and cosmetics. If you want to find out more about the many home based businesses I have had you will have to check out my video on Embellish Life at YouTube.
