By the time you guys are watching the video below and reading this post, I will be in Los Angeles. If you’re anything like most people, you may enjoy traveling but I have yet to find a person that enjoys packing! I have recently been given the opportunity to partner with Hyatt Place for their Seamless Travel Series. Over the next few months, I will be creating a couple of helpful videos that will help you make your travels more, well, seamless! Tweet me and let me know what you want to see me cover next!

I like to think of a planner as a sort of “Focus Journal”. It’s what I use to keep me on track and hold myself accountable every day. Some prefer the digital way, but I’m old-fashioned and prefer a pen and paper to keep track of my to-do lists, goals, plans, and ideas. There’s just something ultra satisfying about physically striking out a task or making a little checkmark next to it. Plus, there are studies that have shown that when you write something down you’re more likely to make it happen. Sounds magical!
Because I know you’ll ask, my favorite planners by far are by a brand called Arc that I found at Staples. These planners won me over simply because of the freedom they allow. Mine is a combination of a planner and notebook in one. I like to carry around only a few months in it at a time and plenty of paper to take notes, jot down ideas, plans, etc. I like to have a folder in the front to hold any papers I need to keep on hand, some sticky notes, and of course, stickers! I went with the medium-sized poly one because it’s large enough for me to write comfortably but small and light enough to not mind tossing in my purse when I need to.
But more important than what planner you go with (you can even mark off a notebook into your ideal planner) is how you use it. Many people complain about how they have all these things on their lists but they hardly get anything done and/or whether they do or don’t they don’t feel like they’re getting anywhere or feeling any more fulfilled. I hope my tips can help you!
No matter who you are, life happens. No matter how happy you usually are or how much you think positively, I hate to break the news to you but you’re human. Humans aren’t made of steel and at some point something is going to get under your skin, make you upset, make you sad, etc. While having a good cry can help, ain’t nobody got time for too many tears. In this video, I give you some practical advice on what you can actually DO to pull yourself together and get things done in just a minute or so. Try it!
Introducing Motivational Mondays! Some of you may remember that I used to post motivational videos on my second channel but I decided that in 2014, I’d start posting my motivational videos on my main channel. Since I started making videos years ago, I always intended my channel to be more than just a place for beauty tutorials. By keeping things separate, I felt like my message wasn’t coming across and I began to feel like I was doing a disservice to myself and most importantly, you! In the video above I share some of my advice on how you can start making 2014 a great year and also reveal some of my limiting beliefs and how I got past them. Hope you enjoy and find it helpful!
I’ve been a big fan of Tony Robbins for the past two years. I had been listening to his audio CDs, watching clips of his on YouTube, and of course reading his books. Earlier this year, I decided to take the plunge and purchase tickets to his UPW Event. (I had originally planned on going to his Los Angeles event but ended up falling and breaking and cutting open my nose and missing my flight out. Tony’s team was great about letting me use my ticket to attend a future event after I was back on my feet.) Finally, one within driving distance came along in November.
I ended up missing Day 1 of UPW (and the firewalk that goes along with it) because of a gig I had with L’Occitane. For this reason, I’m don’t consider this a full review of the UPW Event and instead am focusing on what I did get to experience and take away from Days 2-4 that I was present for. While I learned so much from the event, here are a few things that stood out to me.
