How I Keep My Inner Goddess Healthy This Summer

IMG_8378

Fruits and veggies from West End Farmers Market every Sunday start the week off right.

I often get asked if I am ever tired and, if not, what is the secret? Well, it’s really not that complicated. I live every day with gratitude and joy. In addition to that, my body is my temple and I keep it healthy most of the time with whole foods and exercise.  My life overall is beautiful, happy, healthy, and full of creative self-expression and love.

The majority of the time, I do not allow anyone to bog me down with unnecessary emotional drama and, on top of that, I rarely put anything unhealthy in my body that could potentially damage or destroy it. I remind myself daily not to take life for granted and to appreciate all the blessings that surround me. So keeping my inner goddess healthy is not just about regular exercise nor is it only about getting enough sleep and drinking lots of water – it also includes keeping a positive mindset and staying confident in my self-image and much more. Below are some photos of how I live each day to the fullest. If you are not living life in this way already, I hope this post will inspire you. Until next time…xoxo…tu-anh

Divine Summer Goddess Fashion

Angelic presence and divine energy.

When it comes to fashion styling, I am all about “less is more,” and summer is definitely my favorite season to style. It is the time to wear soft and silky fabrics that you can breathe in and make you feel as if you are wearing nothing at all – what a fabulous way to get in touch with your inner sensual goddess!

I have written in the past about why you are attracted to certain colors and about the reasons I love white. If you normally wear a lot of dark colors, why not take the summertime to try out some light colors for a change? Trust me, you will feel fresh and beautiful. Try one of our Italian silk tops or dresses.  You will not want to take it off.

Often we get trapped in the comfort of wearing black because it is safe and chic, but by trying out white for a change, I believe you will experience the uplifting of your spirit. You will feel the positive energy radiating out of your body and all those around you will feel it too! If you have not scheduled your summer goddess experience yet, make sure to do so. You will love it! Enjoy the photos of our regular goddess fans below.

Until next time…

11 Ways To De-Stress Your Summer

CAPTION

Meditating under the sun first thing in the morning energizes me.

What comes to mind for you when you think of summertime? An exotic Mediterranean holiday or a backyard picnic with friends, perhaps? Or long weekends at the beach and late-night dining outside to enjoy the summer breeze? While all these things sound oh so wonderful, I believe that too many of us still squeeze so much into our sunshine-filled, warm weather days that we forget to stop and take the time to rejuvenate and appreciate the simple gifts that life has to offer.

That is why I have put together this visual list below of the different simple ways for you to de-stress and truly take time and enjoy these beautiful summer months. Do you always feel the pressure to “do it all”? Why is that so? I would love to hear from you.
