Heal Your Life Through The Art Of Self Love


What is self-love? We hear the words ‘self-love’ get thrown around the spiritual world willy-nilly, but not many of us actually practice self-love.For many people they don’t know how. Some don’t know what self-love actually is. I’ll take this moment now to share what self-love is, but I just ask you one thing: Don’t dismiss its simplicity. For it is in the simplicity that lies the magic.

7 Home Remedies For Beautifully Long Eyelashes


Eyelashes are designed to protect our valuable eyes from airborne pollutants such as dust; they also serve to reduce glare from sunlight and bright lights. Mystics say that the eyes are the window to the soul; eyelashes offer a shield from prying eyes and lend expression to the eyes as the focal point of the face. This is a feature we have repeatedly seen in models of women in ancient art; eyelashes add mystery to a woman.

Chocolate Lavender Chia Pudding


Chocolate and lavender truffles are one of my favorite desserts. The light floral sweetness of the lavender complements the rich dark chocolate so beautifully that I wondered why the flavor profile was so often limited to after-dinner noshes. This Chocolate Lavender Chia pudding recipe brings the decadence of dessert to breakfast – it’s so rich and creamy that it’s insane that is passes as a morning food, but it does – it’s refined sugar free, gluten free, dairy free and packed with Omega-3s, protein and fiber.

Tez Talks #24 - "How To Keep In Balance"


Today, Tez talks about balance and how to achieve and keep this in all areas of life. Tez discusses how checking in with your priorities and committing to these areas regularly help you stay balanced and healthy. It's important to check in with yourself and find out what lights you up, makes you happy and allows you to feel balanced throughout your day-to-day life. She beautifully articulates how precious our time is, which is a wonderful reminder we so often forget as we race through our busy lives. And when something is energetically off, or one section of our lives and what makes us happy isn't being tendered to, we are not truly living our best lives. In this Tez Talks, Tez challenges you to write out your 'balance list' and then commit to it for two weeks and to check in and be mindful of how you are feeling. So, we encourage you to take Tez's two week challenge and let us know how you feel at the end of it!

Beauty: Lovely Nature


It’s so frustrating when a skin issue just won't quit. The only thing more annoying is when you spend $20 on a cleanser full of ingredients that you can't say, and it doesn't even work. How many times, guy or girl, have we all been there? Trust me, I'm right there with you. Two years ago, I broke out on the right side of my face; there were literally bumps on top of bumps. At the time, I had no idea what was going on, only that I cared about my skin way too much to do nothing. My doctor prescribed me medicine to clear it up; he also advised me that in order to help my skin heal well, I should find natural facial products for my skin, preferably organic based. On that note, I tossed nearly all my facial products (of which, there were a lot), and looked to nature's view on skin care.
