Tiffany Hendra – Sanctuary of Style

Tiffany HendraTiffany Hendra – Sanctuary of Style

A couple of years ago I was in Hollywood filming a video series and I invited a girlfriend to dinner.  She asked if she could invite a friend she thought I’d enjoy meeting.  That’s how I met the GORGEOUS and spiritual Tiffany Hendra!  We bonded over kale salad, inspiring women, and our love of our superstar husbands.  (Although her hubby IS an actual SUPERSTAR!  His new album releases soon  And check out how cute he is….AND he has a super-sexy Australian accent!)

She may look like a goddess, but since she is human of course everything hasn’t always been perfect for her.  Let’s find out more about this bold beauty and WHY she now has such a charmed life….

How to Dress Younger – (And Still Look Age Appropriate)

It’s official.  I feel old.

My daughter is now 16.  My friends who are older than I am are just starting to have babies, so you and I both know I’m not really old.  But boy-oh-boy there is something about YOUR children getting older that makes you feel older.

Regardless of how old you are (in chronological years or in spirit), you can look young (and FEEL young) with how you dress. [Read more...]

Unconventional Ways to Recharge Yourself

Last night I did something I’ve never done before…..I refused to cook dinner. I also refused to go out. You see, it’s so easy to feel that your family isn’t appreciating you and your culinary (or lack of culinary) talents and just feel like you’re going through the same motions again and again.

Want to Eat More Greens That Actually Taste Good?

Broccoli-flowerWant to Eat More Greens That Actually Taste Good?

Green veggies are amazing for your skin.   They help clear your skin.  Greens also help to help draw out impurities.  They make you GLOW!
Here is my favorite crispy kale recipe.  It’s FAST, EASY and is PERFECTLY crisp!  Even your kids will eat it.
  • Wash and thoroughly dry kale
  • Place on a glass plate (ceramic doesn’t heat as evenly) – Do NOT overlap
  • Spray with your favorite oil (we like canola or olive oil spray)
  • Salt to your taste
  • Microwave 2 1/2 minutes
  • Flip over
  • Microwave for another 2 1/2 minutes
Enjoy your perfectly crisped kale!  We eat this for dinner, snacks, or bring with when we are on the go.  Just remember to bring water in case you get any stuck in-between your teeth so you can slosh it around.
Another of my favorite recipes is a shake.
  • 2 cups Almond Milk
  • 2 cups Fresh spinach/kale (or 3/4 – 1 cup of frozen spinach/kale)
  • 1/2 cup of Frozen blueberries
  • Blend
  • (add more liquid to make it more liquidy, or add ice to make it more slushy)

How to Get the Most Beautiful Body EVER

Have you ever hired a personal trainer?  Have you ever wanted to?

You’ve heard by now that 80% of how you look is based solely on what you eat.  But don’t discount that last 20%.  Because that last 20% is the difference between your gorgeous body looking flabby or perky.

How do you get the most beautiful body ever?  Answer:  Eating clean – making the best choices you can for every meal…..AND firming and toning what you’ve got.

I’ve never been shy about sharing with you that I’m totally lazy when it comes to exercise.  Let’s just say I have a love/hate relationship with it!  Love the results, hate the amount of time it takes to look fab…..unless of course, you have the most amazing experts on your side sharing secrets with how to get THE BEST body – in the shortest amount of time possible!  And trust me when I say, all personal trainers are NOT the same!!  Yes, you can transform your  body based on what types of exercises you do.  But how do you know the right exercises for you body type?  You usually don’t – and neither do most “one approach fits all” trainers.    And I’ve personally worked with many EXCELLENT trainers.

How do you know what kind of body you’ll get?  I have a fun secret for you….. [Read more...]

Can You be a Mom AND be Fit?

Can You be a Mom AND be Fit?

Of course you can!  But when you are watching stories on the news you feel there are 2 groups battling it out and shouting that their view is the right view:

  1. The group that thinks if you are overweight after having a baby, you are lazy or just not trying hard enough
  2. The group that thinks you can’t do anything about it and you’re stuck with it

But there is also a 3rd group.  This is the group that says, “Love Your Body!”  And then they give you advice, recipes, tips, solutions and share REAL struggles of being a mom, being fit, and balancing it all.

Well, I’m here to tell you that I consider myself incredibly lucky to know the dynamic duo, Kim & Shannon from Fit Mom Diet who fall into this “Love Your Body” approach.  It’s even their tagline!  And for the Bombshell Bootcamp Online Modeling school these ladies will share their secrets to help you with your photo-posing so look fit and fabulous in your photos.

Why do Some Foods Make You Sick, Tired, & Overweight?

Why do Some Foods Make You Sick, Tired, & Overweight?


Swimsuit body thanks to JJ Virgin
Swimsuit body thanks to JJ Virgin

My goal in life is to help women all around the world recognize their beauty.  How you look affects how you feel about yourself.  Heck, it affects how others treat you. (Just wear high heels with jeans one day and see how you instantly get more flirty glances from strangers)!  

And if you don’t know by now, I’ve gotta tell ya, I’m lazy when it comes to exercise. Like really, really lazy!  I do the things that get the biggest results and take the shortest amount of time.  And eating lots of delicious food is something I need to keep my sanity.  So I’m never going to be on a “diet” or starve myself….my love affair with food is too strong – but I will almost always choose foods that I now know make me look and feel beautiful.  Do you?

And it’s my goal to share those time-saving tips with you so you can feel more beautiful too.  1966769_10152269998553945_526495479_n

One of my pageant girls who ate super clean and worked out 3 hours EVERY DAY…..was still lacking confidence in swimsuit.  Even with all the working out she did, she still had a belly and didn’t look like she worked out as much as she did.

After reading The Virgin Diet, she changed EVERYTHING…. she ate MORE food – doing exactly what JJ Virgin suggested, she exercised LESS – the way Scott Keppel of STS Scott’s Training Systems (You’ll see him featured here soon….his workout advice is nothing short of miraculous!) suggested, and she lost 7% body FAT in 6 weeks!  And she rocked her bikini on stage.

I didn’t sign with the FORD/Robert Black Agency – Modeling and Talent Agency until I stopped eating eggs (which I totally ate EVERY day, (because eggs are supposed to be good for you, right?)  The reason I stopped eating them?  JJ said I was allergic to them.  Lost 15 pounds, stopped having gas all the freakin’ time, and suddenly had a flat tummy….without even trying!  Best part?  I was eating a TON of food (and still not exercising as much as you’d think). *guilty smile*

So here’s my quick and easy tip for you….eat a boat-load of yummy food – especially the ones JJ suggests!  And if you are eating the foods that are making you look less beautiful than you are, then check out her free teleseminar where she will teach you how to “swap” foods that make you break out, gives you stinky gas (hey it happens), and makes you look 10 pounds heavier than you really are….with food that makes your skin glow, makes you smell like flowers (or at least you don’t have to blame your toots on the dog or your kids anymore) AND makes you look 10 pounds lighter.

Or as she says, it’s “LOADED with great info on HOW to do the Virgin Diet, WHY some foods make us sick, tired and overweight, and WHERE to make powerful food swaps.”

Check out her link HERE. It’s free and you can only see it for a few days as a free gift (she’s getting the word out about her new cookbook – so she’s giving out lots of yummy, free advice to help promote it).  Trust me, when you follow her FREE advice, you will forever change your life!  There are lots of great healthy eating tips out there.  And there is lots and lots of good advice.  Not everything works for everyone.  But I love JJ’s “Diet” because you are (temporarily) eliminating foods you may not even know you are sensitive/allergic too.  When you re-introduce them, you easily find out what does and does not make you feel beautiful.  Her approach saves you THOUSANDS on lab fees and doctor’s visits (I should know, I’m married to a doctor and I see the lab fees patients have to pay the labs…Yikes!).  Soooo…..You’re welcome.  :)


Again, you can catch her FREE teleseminar HERE.  


Wishing YOU a beautiful day!




Are YOU Beautiful?

Be Red HauteAre YOU Beautiful?

This is a serious question.  Not because of what anyone else thinks.  But because of what YOU think.  About yourself.  You know, the girl you probably have been ignoring.  She’s the MOST important person in your life.  And you see her every time you look in the mirror.  She’s YOU.  And the way you treat her, the way you speak to her, and the way you feel about her, will color how you treat, speak to, and feel about YOUR friends, your family and the world around you.

So are you beautiful?  What makes someone beautiful? [Read more...]
