Every single time I complete a Whole30, my life changes a little bit more for the better, building and strengthening the foundation of sparkle within me. On January 1, 2018 we began Whole30… the same day that our gorgeous moon was last at her fullest.. Not only was the moon cycling alongside all of us on Whole30, but on day 31, the first day following our 30 day reset, the moon is showing off her sparkle in full with some serious LUNAR TIGER BLOOD.Read More
Just a few years ago, the words “Shaman” and “Shamanism” seemed to show up everywhere I turned. It wasn’t a concept or label that I was very familiar with, but each time it popped up, I took note and listened.Read More
Every December I find myself surprised by how busy life feels. The to do lists keep growing (and my Type-A tendencies get more and more triggered) as I envision closing the year with every loose end tied up in a perfect, beautiful bow. Sometimes, I need to stop and take a dose of my own sparkle medicine and remind myself of the sparkle in the messiness and the chaos.Read More
‘Tis the season of celebrations, festivities, and abundant opportunities to indulge. This perfect storm of excess may lead many of us to toss our wellness habits to the backburner and plan to begin our new, perfect, healthy, Instagram-worthy life come the new year.Read More
Last weekend I volunteered at the Bulletproof Conference in Pasadena, CA. I have been following Dave Asprey and all things Bulletproof for quite awhile now, so when I saw the opportunity to volunteer arise (and in turn, have the chance to attend during non-volunteering hours for free) I jumped. Since I am still quite new to southern California, having an event like this in my backyard felt like a great opportunity to connect with the wellness community and like-minded people.
What a wild weekend! First off, the Bulletproof community is a fantastic blend of health focused and nerdy, which is right up my alley.Read More
In the process to untap my sparkle, I experienced a side effect. My thoughts began to shift in a new, empowering way. As my enthusiasm for digestion grew, I learned more. As I learned more, my mindset started to focus not on taking up less space, losing weight, or becoming less, but rather eating foods that satisfied me, tasted good, and most of all: MADE MY GUT HAPPY.Read More
Over the years I have become more and more aware of meditation, especially as it’s popularity has bloomed. I always loved the idea of getting grounded and centered and quieting my mind, but always assumed it just wasn’t something that would help me. August 17, 2017 is officially my one year anniversary of meditating every single day.Read More
Have you seen this 4 letter acronym running amok on all the health websites, blogs, and podcasts around? Me too. Small intestine bacterial growth, known as SIBO, is a real bummer of a situation where, to put it way too simply, bacteria is growing in places it shouldn’t be growing. We all have a beautiful universe of bacteria in our bodies, especially in our gut (often referred to as the microbiome).Read More
Leo season is here. On August 11, I turn 35 years old. This is a milestone birthday, coming during a year of significant, stretching, overwhelming change. Being human is hard, right? As I have been reflecting on my habits, practices, and potential in my journey to continue to expand and untap my sparkle, I am knocked over specifically, by one piece.Read More
Whole30 + 5 = Whole35
As mentioned here, turning 35 is prompting me to face my fears and further explore the deep. Juicy, wild being that is… me. I have been untapping my sparkle for a long time, and it is time to step up my game to bring that sparkle to the next level. 35 is going to be my #yearofintuition, and one of my first steps of this process is to clear my vessel.
The best way I know how to set the foundation? Whole30.Read More
I have been putting off writing this FOR YEARS. It just feels like too much. My story, like so many others, is a lengthy journey that led me to come home to myself. What is the catalyst that prompted me to truly take control of my life and untap my sparkle? The Whole30.
It's true. As promised, the Whole30 absolutely changed my life.Read More
