Celebrate Your Body! August 11 2015, 0 Comments

I absolutely love the fact that I have been able to be a part of such a wonderful magazine as BellaMia. This new publication, which has produced three beautiful issues so far since its launch in April 2015, echoes my own values and principles and states them in such a wonderful way, in every article, with every image, on every page.

I have thought each issue was amazing, and I really think that, in flying colors, about this August/September issue. The cover photo just makes my heart happy. We photographed 10 beautiful women, all different ages and different body types, in just a tank top and underwear. You see five of them on the front cover, the other five on the inside cover, and they are all happy and confident in themselves. It is our hope the articles in our magazine will make that attitude contagious for each and every woman who reads it.

You can read the entire issue yourself here at this link.

This issue has great articles on exercise that will help you feel your best, and fun fashion tips, like how to wear a sarong and feel as comfortable as an island princess. My article on page 32 highlights a few of my favorite fall fashion trends to help you get through the upcoming transitional months when mornings are chilly but the afternoons are warm. I also wrote an article on page 120 with tips for the caregiver. Sometimes, when caring for others, people will let their own emotional well-being and physical health go by the wayside, but it is important to be your best, for you and your loved ones.

If you love what you see in this magazine as much as I do, please consider helping our publishers continue production by supporting their Indigogo campaign. It’s a great way to support and celebrate women, and learn some valuable information to enhance your journey as well!

Cheers to the dog days of summer, hot hot hot August, and the freedom to Go Free!

Care for the Caregiver April 15 2014, 0 Comments

Today, April 16, is National Healthcare Decisions Day. This day helps put a spotlight on talking about and planning for your own end-of-life decisions. But for many of us, before we even get to that point, we will be caregivers for someone else. According to the AARP, more than 54 million Americans are serving as primary caregivers for a loved one.
