In honor of the last video of the year, I thought I’d do an outtakes one! If you have been following me for a long time you’ll remember my old videos always had outtakes at the end of them. I did that because outtakes/gag reels are my absolute fav part of any movie or show. The reason I don’t include them now is because I don’t mess up nearly as often as I used to. Which I guess is a good thing, but sometimes I miss it because it shows more of my personality.
People that know me in person know that I’m not super serious and I love to laugh and have fun as much as possible. Definitely a little too goofy at times lol.
Anyways, here’s the vid! Hope you guys like it. Oh and the part where the light kept changing, swear it kept happening like every 30 seconds during filming of that video!!
Hey guys! Hope you are enjoying your time off from work & life! Or at least enjoying the slower pace if you have to be at work this week. I’m back with another Deep Beauty video for you guys. I’ve had a bunch of you ask me for guidance when it comes to positive thinking so I thought I would share my top tools to help you develop a positive mindset.
These are my fav books, videos and podcasts, basically the things I turn to and have turned to. It’s taken a lot of time and a LOT of work on myself to be where I am today and trust me I still have a longgg way to go. But I want you to know that it is really fun work! I know it sounds boring and a lot of people would rather turn on the Kardashians and forget about their problems for a bit, but in the end your life is always there, waiting for you.
So why not master your mind and kick life in the butt?! You only have one life, make the most of it!!! Ok ok, I tend to get a little excited when it comes to this positive mindset stuff. Onto the video..
Guys! There’s only 10 days left of 2017! Who else is excited for 2018? I’m starting to see a lot of people posting things about how 2017 was the worst year and they can’t wait for 2018 to start. Which is reminiscent of what people were saying about 2016 a year ago. Look, your year is your year, stuff happens in life but it’s all about how you deal with it that matters. Just because the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, 2017 nothing is going to change. You will still be you, in your life dealing with the same things but it’s up to you to make the most of everything.
Make it a priority to laugh everyday, love with your whole heart and do the things you only dream of doing. Be realistic, one second isn’t going to change you whole life so don’t kid yourself. Write out your where you see yourself in 10 years, followed by 5 and then 1. Now make a list of your priorities for the year, the big 5 things that you need to make happen to get yourself on the road to your 5 and 10 year goals.
From there cut those bigger priorities into 4 and there you have what you need to make happen for the 4 quarters of 2018. I find it so much easier to focus 3 months at a time rather than looking at the entire year. You then take it from there and break it down into your weekly and daily tasks.
Then find yourself an accountability partner!! There is nothing more effective in my experience than having someone you are accountable to. If you want to check in with me, that is totally fine, shoot me an email at email@example.com. Good luck to you all, you got this!!
We are kickin’ off day 9 of #25DaysofChristmas with a Deep Beauty video for you guys! This one is all about learning how to say no to people and not feel guilty. This time of year is full of invitations and obligations to attend this or that holiday party and sometimes you just need a minute to yourself. There is no reason to feel guilty about this, we only have so much to give and everyone has the right to recharge without having to feel bad about it.
There are 8 tips in this video to help you guys out If you have any requests, let me know in the comments. Oh and please like and subscribe!
It’s been a hot minute since our last Deep Beauty video, and it was discussion in the Deep Beauty Facebook group that prompted this video. We were talking about what it means to work on yourself. That term gets thrown around A LOT. Like we’re all supposed to magically know what that means and how to go about doing that. Well I don’t know about you guys, but I definitely had no clue where to even start when I was lost and in search for help.
That’s why I decided to do a video with my 5 tips on how to work on yourself. I want you to know that there’s nothing wrong with asking for help. Nobody knows everything in this world. And I have so, so much respect for the person seeking answers than the person who pretends they know it all.
Here is the vid! Please let me know if you have any questions or topics you’d like to hear about
Ok I know what it feels like. You see that girl that seems to literally walk on air. She’s gorgeous, feels great about herself all the time and seems to have all the confidence in the world. Well my friends, let me tell you, you too can feel that way. I promise it’s way easier than you think. That’s why I’m here to tell you about the easiest way to boost your confidence!
Yup, you read it right, affirmations. Your brain is a really tricky organ in that it believes anything you tell it. So if you tell it your nose is too big and your eyes are too wide, well it’s going to believe your nose is too big and your eyes are too wide.
If you tell it you don’t want pizza and donuts, guess what you’re gonna be craving? Pizza and donuts. You get the idea.
That’s why it is so, so important to inundate yourself with POSITIVE messages. The easiest way to do that? DAILY POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS. We are currently doing a 21 day affirmation challenge in the Deep Beauty Facebook group, you all are more than welcome to follow along. Here’s the rules:
Come up with 3 affirmations about yourself or your life. How to write them? Start off with “I am” and then insert a positive statement of what you want to happen. So for instance, you want to be more confident (this is actually one of mine). You would write:
I am becoming more confident every day.
Now repeat this out loud at least once in the morning and once at night in the mirror. Bonus points if you recite this all day, errday. Think about it, if you keep thinking that all day long, eventually your brain is going to believe it. Your brain believes anything you tell it, so just..
Fake it till you make it baby!

Ahh happiness, that elusive, sought after feeling that seems to be so fleeting at times. Happiness and to be happy in life isn’t as hard to acheive as it sometimes seems. Sure life stuff will happen and things won’t always be simple or go your way, but I’m here to fill you in on a little secret. I have the #1 tip to being happier in life and it is so, so easy to do.
What is it you ask?
Yup, exercise. 20-30 mins of any physical activity that gets your heart pumping a little harder will release dopamine in your brain which is the chemical that is responsible for happiness, productivity and energy levels.
It’s also the subject of my latest Deep Beauty video, I go into details as to how it all works. Also! Join our secret Deep Beauty Facebook group (ladies only) to join our monthly challenges so we can all be happier together!
Question- Are you a regular exercise, and have you experienced it making you happier?
How’s everyone doing on this last Monday of May?! I am loving the fact that June is around the corner, 2 reasons, a) June=summer & b) My bestie is coming to town!! Yup, all the way from Melbourne, Australia, I get her for 8 glorious weeks! Can not wait to share our adventures with you guys. Also, can not wait to fill you guys in on my next project..the Secret Deep Beauty Facebook group!!
You guys know I’ve been working with Lauryn from The Skinny Confidential for over a year now and she has inspired me to connect and help you guys on a deeper level. Which is where the idea for the Facebook group started.
I wanted to create a space for all us gals to connect and share our trials & tribulations and how we got through some of the more unpleasant things in life. Like I was saying on our last Instagram live, I feel like sometimes in our culture (from what I’ve experienced at least) people can put up this image of perfection as if nothing ever goes wrong. No one wants to admit their flaws or be vulnerable, which at the end of the day doesn’t do anyone any good.
We are all sitting here suffering in silence when we could be helping lift and support one another.
I dunno about you guys but I am soooo over it all. That’s why I’m starting this group, so that we can have a safe, private (it’ll be a closed group & WOMEN only) place to share our struggles and reach out for support.
So watch out for that guys, it’ll be starting June 1st anddd, there will be a GIVEAWAY!! I’ll be choosing a winner from the 1st 50 people to join, and trust me you’ll definitely want to enter. Giveaway details will be posted in the group June 1st, I’ll be posting a link to the group on my Facebook Page.
Can’t wait to connect with you all a little bit deeper!
Happy April everyone! It’s finally starting to feel like spring around here, yay! It’s strange to go from summer weather in San Diego to winter in Canada and then to spring within 3 weeks, but I’m just grateful the weather is starting to warm up a little. The warm weather and sunshine just puts everyone in a good mood
So today’s post is an important one, I’ve got another Deep Beauty video for you and we are talking about how to live a fulfilling life. I was totally inspired by PANDORA’s new campaign called DO which is all about female empowerment and being true to yourself. Such an important message.
Living a fulfilled life has more to do with helping others than it does with helping yourself. I get so inspired when I see people that go out of their way to give their time and energy to make someone else’s life better. Just gives you the feels! I’m also super impressed by brands that do this, which is why I wanted collaborate with #DOPANDORA on this video.
As a brand they are continually doing things to reduce their environmental impact and promote sustainable behaviours. They don’t need to do this, they choose to. They’re also partnered with Dress For Success which is an amazing charity that does all sorts of things to help empower women. They don’t need to partner with them, they choose to.
We are all given the opportunity to help others, as the saying goes everyone has the same amount of hours in a day as Beyonce. What you do with those hours is up to you.
Taking the initiative to help someone else out with no expectations in return is what fulfillment is all about. I’ve had many people help me in my life and wouldn’t be where I am today without them! As I’ve mentioned before I’ve been working with a mentor, Lauryn Evarts for the past year. Her one requirement at the end of our mentorship is for me to go on and mentor someone else. Amazing concept! So watch out for that, I’ll be posting that in the next few months
Here’s the video! I’d love to know if any of you have gone out of your way to help someone in need, I’d love to hear your stories! Let me know in the comments.
Hello, hello, hello!! How’s everyone doing today?! Hope you’re all doing well So. In the spirit of spring (I know, it totally doesn’t even feel like it’s here yet) I have a an awesome deep beauty video that kinda fits into the spring cleaning, fresh beginnings mode. It’s all about how to face your fears!
I think you guys are gonna love this one because I added a bit of a homework assignment to the end of it that will hold you guys accountable. I don’t want this blog or any of my posts to be just preachy words of inspiration of advice that you can’t apply to your real life. I want you guys to walk away from my posts with actual actionable tools that you can apply to your life to make a real difference.
So stay tuned to the end so you guys can have what you need to finally face your fears and live the life you want! Oh and I have a very special post coming up soon..let’s just say you all know how private I can be about my personal life..well I’m gonna let you peak into my world real soon!
Heres the vid!
