Crystals in My Water




I like my water vibin' high. Charged up by the precious stones of Mama Earth.

I first heard about VitaJuwel and their ViA gemwater bottles from my yogi sister. As soon as I did, I needed one for myself.

What is gemwater, you ask? The most beautiful kind of water you can get.

Purified water that has been charged up by crystals becomes purified even further. The gems raise the vibration of the water to heavenly levels. They bring it back to its natural, wonderful, nourishing, healing state -- the way nature intended. The pH levels become more balanced, harmful substances are neutralized, and you become revitalized.

You just fill up the gorgeous glass bottle with purified water (I use ZeroWater to filter mine) and let it sit for 7-10 minutes while it works its magic. The water can pick up on the energy of the crystals through the glass pod that encases them. One sip and you'll notice a difference for sure.

I have the ViA Wellness, and I just adore it. There are a ton of other gempods you can get, too. You can switch out the pod depending on which one feels right for you at that moment.

I could go on and on about this bottle but, really, you should just get one for yourself. Well, maybe watch my little video first. Then go get yours.

Ten Things



1. Last week, I had my tarot cards read. The most notable takeaways were that love will be entering my life within the next few weeks, and in 3 months time it will "become clear that it's a soulmate." O0oh lala. I'll keep you guys posted, obviously.
2. At the tarot card reader's recommendation, I've been listening to this when I fall asleep. It's fuckin' powerful, man. I'll put on a playlist of a few of these videos so that they continue while I sleep. I'm really into it... even if I end up waking up in the middle of the night like, "Alright. ENOUGH," and have to turn it off.
3. I always prefer not to wear a bra. Whenever I can, I go braless. It feels freeing and playful and even a little bit bad ass. Of course, I am part of the IBTC, so it doesn't really make a big difference either way.
4. Today, like many days in my life. I ate a full bag of chips. How long will this continue? Time will tell.
5. In ten days time I'll be in LA with this babe visiting this babe. Can not freaking wait. Is there anything we need to do or see?? Let me know!
6. For almost a year I've been mostly nail-polish-free. (On my hands, at least.) I love how easy it is to not worry about chips and smudges and repainting every 3 days. But... there's something so feminine and subtly sexy about a hand of painted nails. So for now, I'm switching back.
7. Just realized I've only had a quarter of the amount of water I normally drink by this time of the day. Shit.
8. I've been making it a top priority to get my arse to the gym as often as possible, and I'm really excited about it. I'm starting to feel really strong, and I can even see some baby abs poking through -- even if my lil potbelly is covering them. Refer to #3.
9. Kombucha has been my jam for a while. But lavender kombucha, you guys. That's that new shit I'm on.
10. Yesterday, my grandma said something so simple yet very profound: "Good things take a lot more time than bad things." Patience, my friends. The good is coming.

Skin Bliss: Jurlique





I cherish my beauty rituals. To me, they’re my time to indulge the sense of sight, touch, smell, and even sound all at once. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always been infatuated with trying out new beauty products — and here I am, no different at 28 years old. Well, maybe a little different; different in my concern with quality of ingredients. 

I was introduced to natural skincare brand Jurlique by my wonderful healer Dr. Alicia Armitstead. This woman is next level. Truly something else. I hold all of her recommendations to the highest regard. So when I saw she was backing this skincare brand, I knew I’d be in for a treat.

Fragrant, potent, and powerful, yet gentle, their products are top tier. No exaggeration. 

Their Beautiful Rituals face care set is a rose-based trio made up of their Rosewater Balancing Mist, Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cream Mask, and Skin Balancing Face Oil. 

I’m in love.

Rose is wonderful for hydration and balance, topped off with its beautiful, feminine scent.

After washing my face, I close my eyes and spritz some mist, massage in a few drops of the face oil, and finish it off with a couple dabs of the moisturizing mask. The mask is really meant to be a once-a-week treatment, but my skin needs some extra love, so I use a little bit of it on the daily. Then, a few times a week I'll apply a generous amount when I’m hanging out around my apartment, and let my pores slowly drink it in.

I think that skincare is one thing in which we should allow ourselves to indulge. If you have the means, I recommend you try one of Jurlique’s magical potions for yourself.

Ps. I'm well aware that the flowers pictured about are not roses, hehe. But they look beautiful alongside the products, right?!

Bodysuits





T'was a very, very exciting day when Freeps allowed me to shoot some bodysuit images for wholesale. Quite the easy task when you have a babe for a model, and an awesome art director, stylist, and hair and makeup crew. I'm psyched. :) :)

Underneath















I've said it before, and I wasn't lying: Sometimes a girl has to hang out at home in beautiful lingerie. Especially when it's a high-waisted lace-up set by Brooklyn duo Daisy & Elizabeth

The Tuck

Put your hands up on my tuck, when I tuck, you tuck, we tuck.

This kind of makes me want to cut my hair. But I won't do it. I won't do it.

Or will I?
