Fashion, Flowers, and Sensuality

I have shared with you in a recent blog post that besides fresh-smelling herbs, flowers are one part of nature that I cannot live without. Wherever I am, fresh flowers are always present. Flowers add immediate beauty to your surroundings, and can uplift your spirit and brighten your days even through times of stress and sadness.  My home and work space is always filled with flowers, no matter the season or weather. I get so inspired by their dreamy petals, their freshness, their vibrant colors, and their heavenly fragrances.  In fact, I don’t remember ever coming up with magical ideas and feeling so free and creative without flowers being very close by….When I am on holiday, I also make sure that flowers are part of the decor and ambiance of wherever I am lodging. I amorously call flowers my best friends because of the good Feng Shui and positive energy they bring into my life, as well as numerous other healing and health benefits. And most importantly, flowers awaken the sensuality within me.

Being with flowers is not only a spiritual experience for me, but they also remind me to stay in touch with my inner goddess and honor my femininity. I hope you like the little film clip below, featuring the luminous Style Goddess Julianne in one of our flowered ponchos. I filmed it on my goddess retreat in Mexico earlier this year.  If this doesn’t make you want to stop and smell the flowers, I don’t know what will! 🙂 Flowers teach us how to fall in love with pleasure all over again and to savor the special little things. When you introduce flowers into your surroundings, you cannot help but feel like you are living inside a prettier, happier, more creative, and more romantic life. For those of you who are on the more reserve side, flowers can soften your personality and make you feel more charming and flirtatious, too!

Well my lovies, how are you presently incorporating flowers  into your life?  And what are your favorite types to keep around the house? Mine are peonies, orchids, roses, and lillies 🙂

Now time for some pampering. Go out and buy yourself some flowers and let’s celebrate you!

Peonies are my favorite flowers. They look so feminine, powerful and full of life!

 

 

For the Love of a Red Dress

Nothing better than being in a red dress surrounded by all things masculine!

With the hot summer coming soon, I am looking forward to the warm sexy days where I can just toss on a beautiful dress and my hand-made Grecian sandals, and out the door I go.  I have always loved the ease and feminine appeal of dresses, and red is one of my favorite hues.  There’s something about a woman in a red dress that is so powerful and alluring, don’t you think?

Take a look at the mini film below that is part of my new tu-anh Boutique YouTube video series. In it, I’ve styled model Alex Marie in a long, sexy cotton Greek Goddess dress, which is perfect for hot summer nights out, a Sunday brunch in Alexandria, or a sexy date at home with yourself on the couch with champagne and candlelight.  Or, if you are having a day where you don’t feel your best self, I suggest you put on something with the color red. Doing so boosts your confidence, your power, and your passionate side, and helps you awaken your inner feminine divine.  Doesn’t Alex Marie look like she is ready to take on the world in my video below?

How are you styling your wardrobe for the summer? Is there red in your closet? I always love the fashion inspiration my fans provide, as well as the inspiration from the places I travel to!

The red section is a staple at our sanctuary.

How To Deal With Negativity In Your Life

Do you have people in your life that no matter how great things are, they will always find something to worry or complain about? How about those that suck the life juices from you when around them? We all have those people in our life and especially loved ones.  Whether it’s about their personal or work life, or just general conversation, these individuals are creating an environment that’s not conducive to helping you be your best self and thrive in life. Some of them even say that they are just being realistic. What does that mean? I am not so sure I can find the word “realistic” in my goddess dictionary 🙂  So what should you do when surrounded by negativity?

Steven Gaffney recently offered great advice on how to take control of these negative situations and turn them into something positive.  Watch the video below to get two actionable ideas to help you erase this negativity in your own life or how to handle loved ones who are negative.  As always, I’d love to hear from you what you do to keep positive energy around you.
