You do NOT have to settle or choose, my eclectic friend!! In any area of your life...and that includes HOW YOU DRESS! If you’re anything like me, you LOVE lots of different styles and elements and are full of quirks and nuances. I love so many styles of clothes - chic and sleek, rock, glam, vintage… And that’s part of what makes you so effing fascinating and textured! But, I know it can feel overwhelming to translate all of that into how you dress.
"Don't only practice your art,
but force your way into its secrets;
art deserves that, for it and knowledge can raise man to the Divine."

Do you have a favorite number? A number or number sequence that you see all the time? Do you always wake up at 4:44? What does this mean? Is it mere coincidence, a sign of luck, is the universe really sending you a sign?
The Greek philosopher Pythagoras (570-495BC) believed numbers had souls and magical powers and that numbers ruled the universe and were the highest level of knowledge. He thought of them as male and female, light and dark, even and odd and he is known for believing that... read more

But, the thing is, it’s all YOU! So, allow yourself to be ALL of it!
Here are 3 ways to drop the overwhelm, own your eclectic and look chic doing it:
1. Style is art, and you’re the artist! What matters is the landscape or tableau you create with your outfit, not if makes sense! So CREATE from that space!
2. Ask yourself how an outfit FEELS. If it’s off for you, see if something needs to brought in or tweaked to make it more you. It can be something as simple as an accessory or a cool jacket..explore and experiment... read more

So much of the dating advice out there is honestly, just plain dumb. Even in the age of the #MeToo movement it’s still so easy to find articles directing women to try to be someone you’re not or change who you are to make potential partners more attracted, intrigued, and want to stick around, etc.
However, the process of attracting a luscious, lasting love into your life isn’t about becoming someone you are not, but instead it’s about...read more

When promoting on Instagram (“IG” as it’s commonly known), try this on for size: no man is an island and when utilizing the tool to its fullest, it just might take a village. Learn how to work IG with other small businesses in your locale, niche or cybersphere!
Casting a net beyond yourself and your business and/or service is smart. It is what creates community and one - as you are strategic with consistent branding - becomes DESTINATION. With ‘destination,’ either in actuality or cyber-ville, there’s someWHERE for your desired consumer to land as they put out a 411. Share those pics. Give a little special something. Gaining trust and building a brand, you are more likely to grab them.
Destination: that wider landing place that reflects a community of individuals; niche interests; or geographical locale.
Remember that that average IG consumer is already more than halfway to you. They are researching. [wedding planning, hair styles, photography, ab exercises, baby shower gifts, etc.]. They are conducting search by way of the IG search bar. [ beach weddings, bangs, street documentary, core workout, baby clothes, etc. ] IG gives them possibilities from popular #hash-tags already in the IG stratosphere. That means your cute baby clothing boutique on Main Street just might get tossed their way, if #hashtagged #babyshowergifts or #babyclothes? Correctomundo! For branding... read more

You can read about Crystals until your third eye is crossed, but I’ve got to tell you something that’s going to change the way you feel about crystals. The truth is, someone else’s experience with a certain crystal may or may not resonate with you!
Go Deeper Than a Definition! That’s why you’ve got to get deep and by deep I mean get geared and go soul spelunking! This isn’t about reading some info on a crystal and then imposing that information on your experience. It’s about allowing a relationship and a collaboration to develop between you and your crystal.
Honor Ancient Wisdom Definitely there is crystal wisdom out there that has been handed down to us, that’s even embedded in our DNA and I honor those teachings and remembrances because they are gifts to us from our Ancestors. The purpose for allowing our own intuition and sensitivity to come to the front of our experience is to be in the moment. To be present and tuned into our own energy and vibes.
Use Your Intuition Before you reach right away for your favorite crystal book or online resource give yourself the opportunity to be with and listen to what your inner Guide is sharing with you. Don’t expect big flashing lights or intense impulses is energy, although this can happen, just be open and still. Set aside five minutes to hold, gaze and touch your crystal. I like to experiment with different cloths... read more

Are you a Global Glamazon on a mission to captivate the world with your wisdom and do you sometimes struggle to create the income and impact you desire?
If you've been in business for yourself for any length of time, you will have surely encountered one of those dark nights of the soul where you feel you've done everything but still remain stuck in a holding pattern when it comes to your finances.
This frustration can even lead to bouts of fatalistic thinking, visions of shamefully slinking back to a soul-sucking 9-to-5 cubicle or worse.
Self-doubt is normal, but sliding into a downward spiral of chocolate truffle binges serves no one. And it doesn't get you any closer to running your gypset empire from a private turquoise lagoon in the Maldives, either!

Are you having trouble figuring out your next marketing campaign or how you’re going to land your next client, or even how you’re going to communicate your brand identity?
Sometimes when we’re too deep in our business we simply can’t see the wood from the trees. All ideas seem like good ideas because all problems seem like awful problems and all you want to do is solve something so you can move on, set some goals and start actually hitting them!
All of us stumble on a creative block every now and again, but it’s up to us to stumble back out of it and find a solution. Here’s my proven method of using creativity to solve my biggest blocks in business and make an impact.
1. What are you working on that needs solving? Write down all of the challenges you are currently facing in detail, bullet point them and then pick the one that’s really bothering you. The one that makes you want to scream at the sight of it. What about it is causing you jipp? Why are you having trouble coming up with a solution? Now consciously try and come up with an answer.
2. Go for a walk, paint, meditate or have a shower! Doing something entirely unrelated allows you to relax and lets your mind subconsciously work on solving the problem. If you can paint or draw without overly thinking about it then this is a great way to get the creative side of your brain working and problem solving of its own accord. We all know that meditation is a great way to be present, to... read more

These notes came to me as clarity for myself, and I wrote them down and decided it might be interesting to others. When the kundalini awakens, things and stuff arise: the scaffolding that held our personal identity together such as beliefs, concepts, conditioning, habits, relationships, work, mental health, moods ... all those properties we collected to build ourselves up, is being released. This releasing or unraveling happens all by itself - it's perfectly spontaneous.
This stuff comes to our awareness, and we become even more aware of it as it is being released. This is where we tend to get in the way of the process itself because we do not want to let go or go through what is being released; so we resist it or try to stuff it down or dampen our energy with excessive grounding. As the stuff releases, there is a fire or a transformation happening, a metamorphosis is beginning to happen: an uncoiling. The held item is releasing and dissolving our attachment to it, so what is releasing is our holding or ownership of it.
As this item releases the brain mapping and organization is changing to essentially erase it. Healing is happening; the energy we held, forced and kept inside is in form and is now being freed or released into no pattern which for that apprehension now allows a spontaneous response to similar happening vs. the old programmed autopilot reaction. We are now aware of that happening and can just be spontaneous with it... read more

Looking for the fountain of youth
is an impossible task so most people resort to surgery and injections to look younger. You look in the mirror and think to yourself “I’m starting to look old for my age. I need to do something stat!”. But what if you’re not into surgery or injecting toxins just to look younger? Is there anything that can help you not look older than you are without breaking the bank?
Girl, I got you! No, it's not the usual “drink more water, get more sleep, exfoliate, etc...”. We already know those. Here are some of my favorite secrets to help us look younger than we really are.
1. STOP TOUCHING YOUR FACE Rubbing your eyes tugs on your delicate skin causing eye wrinkles. Also, using your hand to prop your face up at the computer, while scrolling thru your emails or social media, watching TV, or when in deep conversation pushes your skin which will cause wrinkles and saggy skin. Plus, the oils and dirt in your hand will clog pores causing... read more

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself… how you got started? I was born in Shawinigan, Canada, in 1982. I grow up by a lake, in a quiet rural area. In 2000, the age 18, I left the house and moved to Costa Rica where I leaned Spanish and did my studies in Fine Arts at the University of Costa Rica. Following, I started working as a graphic designer for advertising agencies. Then, I left Costa Rica and went to do postgraduate studies in illustration in Barcelona. I came back to Montreal in 2010 and started my own illustration studio and worked on my painting. In 2012, I studied Animation Film at Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema, Concordia University, in Montreal. The same year, I was approached by an art Gallery in Montreal and started exhibiting my paintings. Since then, I have exhibited my work through many galleries in other cities and created various animated films.
We love your emotional and majestic depiction of the female form… What inspires your work?
My work being in part autobiographical, the representation of the feminine figures helps me express my anxiety and struggle to understand our short life on earth. This representation of women also serves me as a universal symbol to illustrate the enigmatic beauty of nature. Influenced by the work of theorist and filmmaker Jean Epstein and by physicist and philosopher Étienne Klein, I seek to explore the links between nature and different art forms, and to contribute to the intriguing conversation between arts and science.
"...the representation of the feminine figures helps me express my anxiety and struggle to understand our short life on earth."
In the light of this dialogue between arts and science, I am particularly interested by the notions of time and space, life and death, and I look for answers in...

You’ve shared your work in exhibitions and art fairs all over the world, from San Francisco to Barcelona… what city was your favorite destination? This is a hard one. I must say I have a weak spot for Barcelona, mostly because there are my favorite friends, and the Mediterranean Sea and the patatas bravas... Also, Costa Rica, because it is my second home. And amongst others, San Francisco was really lovely and I have met the sweetest people when I was invited to show my work there... read more

So you may have already known that peacocks are really the male version of peafowls. The females are called peahens and their (less-striking) brown feathers are designed to keep them camouflaged while caring for their young. You may also have known that males display their elaborate tails – called trains – as a form of courtship. Hey girl, hey!
But did you know that peacocks were also masters of technology AND marketing? It’s true...read more

Birds are singing their songs early morning, the air is smelling a little sweeter and daylight is lasting a bit longer. Spring has sprung Y'all! There are so many spring cleaning tips and tricks out there but I’m ditching my broom for now and using some fresh new pieces of art instead! Here are my 3 art buying life hacks will have your home or office spritely in no time.
Spring Hack #1 - Getting Started First things first, take down any existing art you have hanging and get reacquainted with your space + naked walls. This also helps you remember what art stays and what art goes elsewhere (because reduce, reuse, recycle right?) I like to tape pieces of newspaper together into squares and rectangles + arrange them on the wall so I know what size art pieces I'll be on the look-out for.
Spring Hack #2 - Pin(terest) Your Way to Your Personal Style Pinterest is all the things, amirite?!? Use the handy app and pin to your heart’s content. Spend this time getting to know what kind of art tickles your fancy.
Spring Hack #3 - Color Blocking Color Blocking is hot, hot, hot right now in fashion, so why not borrow from Fashion Week?! As we transition from winter to spring, our palettes slowly ease out of the autumnal navy, gray, and oxblood hues and into lighter, brighter, spring-ier colors. To freshen up your space, color blocking is a simple + bold way to enliven any space. Forget any “rules” about clashing; this is about graphic appeal and instant personality. My current color combo obsessions are electric pink + metallic gold... read more

In today’s accelerated culture to-do lists, getting more done, pursuing bigger ROIs, and achieving peak performance are the themes of the day.
It seems frivolous to dedicated time to thinking about what we really want to change or how we can really realign with more joy, love, and fulfillment on a daily basis. It’s not always easy to step back and take a look at what is really working. However, that is exactly what is needed when you feel like you are pushing against a wall, feeling unsure of what you actually want or find yourself in a constant state of frustration despite your achievements.
When I see clients facing this modern day problem usually it’s not about them doing more, but about them doing things differently or incorporating things they have never done or thought of before. These are incredibly smart people, but because so many of us have been programmed to always be in action and doing mode, we spend less time generating ideas and co-creating, and we tend to overlook the deeper aspects of the work we are doing. It is typical to get trapped in a cycle that leads to more work and efforting and less of the results we truly seek.
The Hermetic Laws are ancient spiritual laws and the root of the law of attraction. I was drawn to these principles as I realized that they represent a timeless way to think about and develop the adaptive nature that is required to embody being a modern leader in our accelerated world.

1. You believe in signs and miracles. If you believe that even the smallest sign or taste of success is a miracle then this is the first sign that you are a witch. Asking for a sign from the universe is often a very spiritual thing, especially when you ask for it to appear in nature.
2. You get excited about divination. If you are interested in tarot, astrology, palm reading, tea leaf readings, magic 8 balls, ouija
or any other form of witchy party-time fun to guide you in your online business then you are probably a witch!
3. You love the moon. If you find the moon light a powerful cleansing tool, or you ask the moon goddess for help with your online business struggles then you are probably a witch. I often ask the moon goddess to fill business bank account with money! This works every time!

You are multi-passionate. I get it. I am, too. And I work with gifted, talented, brilliant people like you every day. But tell me if you can relate:
• You have more ideas than you can possibly implement (at one time).
• You have trouble discerning where to start to create substantial traction with your ideas.
• Some of your ideas have been circulating in your head for YEARS. You are actually embarrassed when you see people whom you’ve told and still have nothing to show for it.
• You experience peaks of inspiration and motivation followed by dips of overwhelm and confusion.
• You vacillate between KNOWING you have something to contribute and beating yourself up for where you are and where you think you should be.
• You have a bunch of things started, but few finished to completion.
• And let’s be honest… you aren’t making money from half your ideas (yet).
You are not alone. And I can help. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I speak with entrepreneurs who suffer from what I call “Multi-Focus Syndrome.”
You are BRILLIANT and creative and flowing with ideas. But here’s the truth: Your ideas... read more

You can’t have a conversation about self-love without talking about selfies. And I know what you’re thinking. They’re tell-tale signs of narcissism, insecurity and even sociopathy (according to some studies by the American Psychology Association). But a number of women artists, and women, in general, have taken to selfies and used them as a medium for self-expression, an opportunity to produce counter images to what society deems a woman should look like.
With a recent exhibition charting the history of the selfie at London’s Saatchi gallery, it seems our obsession with selfies isn’t going anywhere. Russell Smith for the Globe and Mail states: “[The exhibition] juxtaposes painted self-portraits – by van Gogh and Rembrandt – with staged and stylized contemporary photo self-portraiture – by Tracey Emin and June Calypso – and the candid, amateur selfies of celebrities, including Obama.
Its point is simple: that selfies are a part of a long tradition of great art.
