All About the Confidently Bracelets

Legalism Vs Grace

This past Monday, I did not even realize that it was a Monday before I had put on makeup. I know that I am truly in the habit of going makeupless each and every Monday, or at least I had been. It’s in my planner, it is in my digital calendar, and it did not happen. When I was reaching for my mascara that morning, I started going through the activities of the day in my head. You see, I had been in the habit of putting on full makeup for the past 2 days due to a video shoot, and then a music video shoot that were both over the weekend. So the makeup went on, regardless of the date. So here I am, putting my mascara on and thinking about the day. I had a particular appointment that day that I was literally thinking, “I wonder if that would be awkward for them, since I won’t have makeup on?”. This was my very thought as I was swiping that mascara on to my lashes. I looked in the mirror and instantly felt guilty. I felt like a fraud. I felt like I was lying to...

Why MakeuplessMonday?

Why Makeupless Monday?

This question keeps coming up across the community, and I love it! 

So why did you create #makeuplessmonday?  

I had to think about it for a while, because for so many years I have been sharing this thought process privately with clients.  I had only really recently thought about going beyond my inner circle and clients since Fall of last year.  Have you ever thought,  “If only I could __________, then that might help other people that I will never have the chance to meet?”  I’ve been thinking a lot about that lately.  Maybe you see something that you feel needs to be addressed, but you aren’t quite sure that what you have to say will make an impact. Maybe your heart will just end up out there in the vast abyss of knowledge that is available?  The first #makeuplessmonday video that I shared was just 9 weeks ago, and my honest intention with the first post was the accumulated passion of years with...

Small Steps that Heal Facial Relation

Small Steps that Heal Facial Relation

Thank you for coming back!  I know that last week’s message was on the heavy hitting side, and I am proud of you for starting the journey to healing. I know that many of you saw yourself inside the identifier questions.  Now that you have had a week to think about your initial responses, how do you feel? Do you think that you may have been a little too hard on yourself?  Do you still find that you are too imperfect? That you are too uneven? That you are too *Fill In The Blank*?

I can imagine that you want a solution that will heal you overnight. I know that I did, and I wish I had that to offer you. I can tell you that there is no overnight, painless solution. What I can say is that this is a process, and that the pain you initially feel will go away. Healing poor facial relation will never be as painful as the disconnect that caused your poor facial relation. Learning how to see our own worth while being bombarded by...

Am I Living With Poor Facial Relation?

Am I Living With Poor Facial Relation?

I want to applaud you for taking the first step and meeting me here. I know that so many of you saw yourselves in my own story that I shared last week. I also know that there are many more individuals that desperately want to feel a sense of relief about the relationship they have with their face. I am not exaggerating when I say that I have physically felt pain when told by a client that they hate their face. HATE. That is such a strong and powerful word, and yet I know that it has been filtered through before it has even been shared with me. They thought this through time and time again before they dared to share it out loud in an appointment. It was probably rehearsed while driving in the car on the way to see me. “If I could just tell her how much I hate my face and the way I look, maybe she would understand and could help me?” You may be living that same scenario right now. For me, living with poor Facial Relation was not an...

The Final TIME OUT

The FINAL TIME OUT

Has the past week been a little awkward saying so many good things about yourself?  Do you feel like you’ve gotten a little stronger mentally?  My genuine hope is that you gain strength every day through speaking your affirmations.  The path to healing and freedom from your internal monologue is just a few short minutes away.  You are Strong, You are Beautiful, You are Worthy. Let’s take that step together to dismantle that mountain rock by rock. I am right here with you, are you ready to take the next step?


Are you ready to finally break free from the second list?  Are you really ready?  Then we have got some serious work to do. This TIME OUT is for those who are truly ready to stop punishing themselves with their internal monologue.


I can only imagine what you have written down on this list.  After all of the horrible things that I have heard women say about themselves out loud I can only begin to fathom the...

A Permanent TIME OUT - The Dream

A Permanent TIME OUT

If I would have known 21 years ago that I would have been sitting here with you and having this conversation, I would have kept a journal of all of the negative things that clients have told me about themselves over the years.  I would have kept it to show you that you are not alone in this world. That you are not alone in this journey to a permanent time out of self hatred. In my career I have worked with so many brilliant and talented people.  Even the most brilliant and talented people that I have worked with had a list of words that vexed or consumed them.  

I wish that I could tell you that this process was easy.  I wish that I could wave a magic wand and take away all of the hurt and pain that words have caused you over the years.  I wish that I could go back in time and tell 4 year old you that you are beautiful, that you are wonderful, that you are strong, and that you are worthy.  

Remember the Time Out you gave yourself...

Let's Take a Time Out

TIME OUT

Let’s take a time out all ready.  Who needs a time out?  We all do.  We need a time out from body and facial negative words. We need a time out from that voice inside that tells us that we aren’t good enough in some way, shape or form because of how we look. We need a time out, but how do we get one?

This process, the one to becoming more body positive is not an easy one when you are standing at the foot of the mountain peering up into the clouds to see the snow capped top.  We weren’t taught these things, and even if we were taught them as children how much of a push from society would it have taken to roll right back down that mountain side?  How old are you now?  Chances are that it took you precisely that long to get you to exactly where you are right now. No matter your age, or your journey it will not take as long to be at a place where these items no longer vex you. So where are you on your journey with body image and...
