DAILY RITUALS FOR WELLNESS, BEAUTY + SELF-CARE
EMBODY DAILY LUXURY - FREE DOWNLOAD
Every week I pick up florals and greens and I play designer. I find it very meditative and soul centering. There is something magical about bringing the outside in and infusing my home with NATURE!
This corner is visible from the hallway and it gives me sense of rustic elegance EVERY time I enter my office. I love texture and the rustic nature in my contemporary home. An ode to the beloved elk that I adore.
It's no secret that I take a bath almost every single night. I also often work from the coziness of my bedroom. So I have to wonder why it took me so long to come up with the idea of installing a Tea Service in my bedroom.
Seriously, I use it several times a day...my bedroom now feels like a hotel suite.
I can't work when my desk is a mess. I feel flustered, cluttered and unable to focus. I used to think that what I needed most for productivity was a tidy space. If everything was in it's place, I could get down to business! Here's the problem...
There are two specific things that a lot of people have going on in their homes and offices that, from a Feng Shui perspective, are energetic blocks to money.
HIGH LIVING & WELL BEING
A well lived life of simple elegance means feeling vibrant and energetic as you flow through your day.
Waking up excited to see what gifts the sunrise brings you.
Nurturing your body and soul on a daily basis. A pampering skin care ritual that makes you glow. High level nutrition for a strong and beautiful body.
The means, both time and money to indulge in deep radical self-care. Perhaps that annual retreat in Bali?
THE LUXURY OF ABUNDANCE
Abundance is a state of mind. What does Luxury mean to you?
Maybe it means the luxury to buy 100% organic food. Perhaps the luxury to spend more time with your family? Maybe for you Luxury means a weekly massage and daily yoga?
Do you feel like these desires are just out of your reach?
You may be someone who feels like luxury is to be seen, not yours to embody.
Intuitively you long for it but your logical mind may tell you it's just not your reality.
Beauty comes from within and radiates out. Fortunately for us we get to adorn this natural beauty with all our our favorite things! Do you like Diamonds or Pearls? Lipstick or Lipgloss? Gold or Silver? Scarves or Belts? Boots or Heels?
Beauty doesn't just radiate from us, it surrounds us, sometimes you just have to look a little closer.

Does your personal style represent how you want to show up in the world? Are you in love with the clothes in your closet?
Does your home feel like a sanctuary? Is it peaceful and clutter free? Do you buy yourself beautiful fresh flowers?
YOUR MONEY MINDSET
People generally either adopt or rebel against the money mindset of their family of origin. Your money mindset is not something you were born with, it is something you were born into, and you can change it!
It's time to curate the LIFESTYLE of YOUR dreams. Did you know that the fastest way to build true wealth and abundance is to create multiple streams of passive income?
Being a busy mom of 2 high energy daughters, I was on the edge of my seat listening to Kim John Payne and Jewel discuss the beautiful concepts of Simplicity Parenting. Do your actions mirror your family values?
First let me tell you how enamored I am with creatives. People who follow their passion (often despite immense adversity) to share their beautiful art with the world. MC Yogi is most certainly one of these creatives. Kicked out of every school he ever went to, challenged by addiction, finding yoga and making it his own.
I'm always looking for fun after school snacks and the other day this idea popped into my head literally 20 min before they were due home. I started with oranges and then went a little crazy dipping everything I could get my hands on in chocolate ;) To say my kids were delighted would be an understatement! This recipe is super quick + decadently delicious! It also happens to be a luxurious + healthy choice when it comes to sweet treats :)
The idea of making a green smoothie every morning from scratch may feel daunting, and I get it. Pulling everything out of the fridge, cutting, shopping, measuring and mess making - all while the kids are screaming and you are screaming late. Here is a solution that changed everything for me and I HIGHLY suggest you use this system to make your 30 Days of Green Smoothies not only doable but pleasurable.
I founded Embody Daily Luxury because as mom of 2 daughters (one of whom has a unique genetic condition and severe behavioral challenges) I had been frustrated and overwhelmed. There were days my daughters behavior brought me to my knees. She was different, she was MORE, she was exhausting, she was loud, she was hyperactive and mostly defiant. She talked early, walked early and got into everything. She was out of control and reeking havoc on our family dynamic. I was miserable. I was depressed and in a high state of anxiety.
A number of years ago, a mentor of mine spoke of a cartoon he had seen.
The cartoon’s text read, “I didn’t do my yoga yesterday…that makes 6 years.”
Embodying Daily Luxury is not about perfection and artificial glamour. It's about brightening even the darkest moments and lighting yourself up no matter what the day brings. For me it has been a lifeline in my most desperate moments.
