LeeAnne Locken – She’s Got the Look

LeeAnne Locken

LeeAnne Locken

One day I’m sitting in my living room watching this fabulous new model search show – searching for women OVER 35, called “She’s Got the Look.”  Instantly I’m obsessed.  Some of the women are mothers.  Some of the women have been focusing on their careers.  Many had put their dreams on hold or given up on what they REALLY wanted to do – pursue a legitimate career in modeling.

All the women competing were beyond gorgeous AND inspirational.  One in particular stood out.  She had that larger than life Texas swagger, confidence, poise and the most STUNNING face.   She was one of the last ladies standing.  Her name?  LeeAnne Locken.  Fast forward to now.  This beauty not only still works in the modeling, acting, hosting world, MORE IMPORTANTLY….She’s working in the REAL world – of HELPING people.  Turns out the girl with the big Texas swagger also has a big Texas heart.

She uses her voice and her image for the most noble cause of all – making a difference.  Want to know more about this beauty?  READ on……. [Read more...]

Alicia Blanco – 2nd Runner Up, Miss USA 2009

Alicia and I knew of one another for awhile, but we became instant friends the day I helped her put on her underwear ….backstage at a fashion show!  (***This is NOT how I usually meet my friends!!  LOL***  Her dress was too tight to bend down and pull them up herself.  In the pageant world I’ve been known to do butt glue (a roll-on adhesive that sticks your swimsuit to your tush so your suit doesn’t ride up while you strut your stuff on stage) so pulling on someone’s underwear was no big deal.  And it’s not the first time I’ve made friends this way!

But there is something extra special about Alicia.  She is one of the kindest, most giving and caring women I’ve ever met.  Do you want to know about this inspirational beauty who is the living definition of “Beauty Inside and Out”?? [Read more...]

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?

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.

Red Haute Mamas Kim & Shannon – Fit Mom Diet

This week you get to meet not one, but TWO fabulous Red Haute Mama’s.  Each Red Haute Mama I select to be featured has a different story to share.  The reason Kim and Shannon were selected for two reasons.  1) They felt unhappy with how they FELT, so they made choices to FEEL better.  (They happen to LOOK amazing too – but it started with wanting to feel better).  2) They are driven to help other moms feel fabulous too.  I freakin’ love that!  

Here’s a little more about them.
