5 Minutes of Fabulous: On how to be lovely

Good Morning Lovely! Today I want to share a poem by Galway Kinnell that reminded me that we’re constantly surrounded by loveliness. "The bud stands for all things, even for those things that don't flower, for everything flowers, from within, of self-blessing though sometimes it is necessary to reteach a thing its loveliness, to put a hand on the brow of the flower, and retell it in words and in touch, it is lovely until it flowers again from within, of self-blessing" When we notice the loveliness that already exists in our lives it creates more loveliness. How can you reteach yourself your loveliness? For me, I reteach my body it’s loveliness by moving my body and dancing like a w

5 Minutes of Fabulous: Satisfied belly, Full soul

Hi my love! Wishing you a very happy and healthy holiday season! How was your Thanksgiving? Did you go around the table and give thanks? Did you feel loved and filled with cozy, holiday cheer? Or was your Thanksgiving dinner filled with discomfort and perhaps heated, nonsensical political discussion?

5 Minutes of Fabulous: What are you loyal to?

I’ve been loyal to eating my feelings, playing it safe, and hoping other people think I’m cool. So, what about you? What are you loyal to? Are you loyal to taking care of others before yourself? Are you loyal to

5 Minutes of Fabulous: What's NOT wrong?

Happy Friday Beautiful! What’s NOT wrong? What’s NOT wrong right now? Last night’s sunset wasn’t wrong. Snuggles aren’t wrong. Morning walks (especially in the flats of Beverly Hills) aren’t wrong. Take a beat and ask yourself, what’s NOT wrong? The brilliant Geneen Roth (the godmother of radical self-care and food psychology) says, “I’d tried versions of not fixing myself before, but always with the secret hope that not fixing myself would fix me.” Does this resonate with you? I’ll tell ya, it certainly resonates with me. I just got back from an epic four-day trip to New Orleans to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. I unconsciously dropped all my “fix me” tools i.e. meditation, journaling,
