Spotted: Charlene Breaking Down + Being Real {Stepping Into Your Power}


Hey Lovely Ladies!Blog May 1 Spotted

After a few months of being M.I.A., I’m BACK!!!  I MISSED YOU!!!!

So, who took me hostage?

The Man. …a.k.a. a day {spa} job.  and… “Gossip Girl” on Netflix. 😉

(hence, the blog title and new Blair Waldorf headband pictured on the right)

In the short time I’ve been at the day spa, The Universe has kicked it up a notch + kicked me in the butt to step up my game.

I’m still gob-smacked at what happened. A lesson I share with you in Stepping Into Your Power…and putting on your fabulous Big Girl Britches Outfits!

So, what are 5 Easy Ways to Make Gratitude a Regular (even daily) Practice?  (more…)

Kickin’ It with Oprah


Hello Gorgeous Angels!

I’m a little late in the game… This past Sunday marked My 1st Oprah Lifeclass experience. Blame our cable provider, who didn’t offer OWN until a few months ago. 😉  But hey, I’M IN now!!!

And I kicked it with Oprah for 4 delicious hours.

And it was… (as it always is…)

In Divine Timing.

Girlies, yet another energetic slowdown hit me.  For real, I’m getting just a little annoyed with these setbacks!  and I could only hope that Oprah’s Lifeclass might uplift me.

…but WHY did my first Lifeclass episodes have to be with Pastors?
