Gems from Paradise--Connecting Women with Themselves and Their Worlds

Earth Day, 2021

Painted rock of the earth and heart in honour of Earth Day, 2021
Earth Day, 2021 is a day for us take a pledge to make a difference for good in this world of ours, so that others may enjoy it for generations to come. If each of us chose to do just one thing a bit better than we've done it before, then those choices combined would make a fantastic start to healing our planet.

Coco Chanel Mindset

A woman in a little black dress. "A girl should be two things--who and what she wants." Coco Chanel
When one thinks of fashion icons, you can't help but think of Coco Chanel. Her vision and style still inspire us, even 30 years after her death. However you came to know her, she had her own style and vision for what her life was to look like...and she went after it...in a little black dress no doubt! So, don't be afraid to be yourself! The world needs to see your brilliance!

Galentine's Day or Valentine's Day: Why Not Both?

Galentine's Day or Valentine's Day: Why Not Both?
First, there was Valentine's Day. Then there was Galentine's Day. How about we use the day to celebrate all that is great about us? We can have our own day where we connect with ourselves and show ourselves some self-love!

Your Feedback: The More I Learn, the Less I Know

Feedback: Important for connection
People crave connection, yet if we don't communicate clearly with information that's relevant to each other's lives, then connections are lost rather than made. I don't want to assume I know what interests you as I want to us all to learn, so connect; let me know what excites you in the worlds of jewellery and design.

How Overthinking Got Me Stuck in Traffic

How Overthinking Got Me Stuck in Traffic
Have you ever been stuck? Maybe you're doing the same thing over and over again, and you feel as if you're not moving forward. Maybe you're going against your training or your gut. Maybe it's fear keeping you stuck or maybe you're simply overthinking whatever it is you're doing! This is what led me to being stuck in traffic and made me realize it was a metaphor for my life!

How Nike Got It Right

How Nike Got It Right
"Just Do It!" Nike is onto something there. These words have become ever so powerful and now I'm applying them to my own life. I'm taking on the mantle this year to simply get stuff done, even if I am a bit late to the game. A dream or goal without execution will remain unfulfilled. Often what stops us from moving forward are those false beliefs we hold. Join me as I kick them to the curb in order to better serve you!

New Beginnings: A Time for Self-Examination and Self-Actualization

New Beginnings: A New Calendar Year of Self-reflection and Self-Actualization

New beginnings often bring self-examination. We review the past year and set goals and dream of what's to come. It's a time for growth; a time to examine false beliefs and shine the light on what's really true for us. Then, when it's all said and done, it's time to act. Without action, our dreams will remain in our hearts, our goals in our heads. 5-4-3-2-1-Launch!

The 5 Second Rule

The 5 Second Rule
The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins is life-changing! And it's an easy concept to understand that will get you thinking about who you are and where you want to go...and it will take you there! It holds you accountable in an easy, but powerful way and it's kind of like a fun personal challenge. You are accountable only to yourself and that is as it should be! I hope you enjoy the post. Please share with me if this philosophy changed your life as well. :) 

Women Are Like Tea Bags....

Tea bag in clear glass to symbolize quote attributed to Eleonor Roosevelt
Women are like tea bags. We are strong and resilient. We have ways of coping that allow us to move through tough situations. There is no doubt that a strong circle of girlfriends is just one of the supports we put in place. What does your cape look like?
