Happy Friday!! Here’s to the weekend! “I always say... “do it afraid”. I have decided that is not the same as “do it humiliated” but here I am (swipe for pic). 😑
So...the secret is out! I am not perfect. The before picture is frankly horrifying... and I won’t even tell you what my girls said. (Think uncensored, brutal...HARSH...honesty). However... if I inspire ONE person to start this journey & change their life, it is worth it. I always say the mirror is the best place to start... & look, it is. 😂
Here is some REAL TALK:
#1 I love to travel but a lot of travel is not good for my waistline because I REFUSE to restrict myself on vacation. Judge me... life is too short. 🤷🏼♀️
#2 Both of my girls said... “Mom! That doesn’t even look like you.” Would I ever wear clothes that are tight and showing all the imperfections? HELLO... NO! If you are a size 4 and you put on a size 2, there will be stuff bubbling over. I mean, I guess? I wouldn’t know about being a size 4. I put on tight clothes so I could see the changes. Smart, huh? Yep... & super humbling. 🤪
#3 I never miss my bedtime supplements (not optional, ever) but I got a little lazy with my Slim in September & October, as in I didn’t drink it every day. That is DUMB because it does so much for my cravings & regulating my body. You mean it only works if you are consistent? I know... I know... DUH. 🙄
#4 I have never been a meal replacement person. Shakes? I have never gotten excited about drinking my calories. LET IT BE KNOWN >>>> I was so wrong to be skeptical about Lean. There is NO grit & I mix it in a shaker bottle, not even in blender! I love the milk chocolate & vanilla equally. I stay FULL & I literally look forward to my shake daily. I have no desire to give up this new habit because it is easy &... HELLO! It works!!!! 👍🏻🎉
I will never be perfect... and I wasn’t perfect for the 14 days but I was consistent with my water, shakes & being intentional about what I was eating. It was SUPER easy. My favorite part was not having to plan lunch for 14 days & it was less expensive than any other meal I would have eaten!! So why would I stop? .
So... are you going to gain holiday weight or LOSE instead?
I can’t say thank you enough! Most of you have been with me for a few years and even some from the very beginning! You’ve been with me as I’ve grown!! We traveled on this crazy journey into salon moves, we’ve transitioned into my motherhood together, and you’ve given me the greatest compliments by your referrals to new friendships that have me booked out now till mid January! I never would’ve thought my business would be this successful! Thank you thank you thank you! #imsothankful#myheartisfull#gratefulforclientslikeyou#hardworkpaysoffs
Join us in giving all the hugs and high fives to Carisa, our most recent Viva Babe recognized through our “It’s Not About the Bag” program. 🤗⠀
Carisa is blazing trails in a male-dominated industry! She works as a National Coordinator with the Elevator Industry Work Preservation Fund, part of the International Union of Elevator Constructors, and is one of very few women journeymen. 👩🔧 In fact, of the 28,000 members in the IUEC, there are approximately only 130 women, AND she’s the only one who has ever been promoted into a leadership position within the EIWPF or IUEC. 🙌⠀
Carisa was appointed by her General President to the North America Building Trades Union, “Women in the trades” committee in DC, and it’s there where her work began, promoting women in male-dominated building trades. 💖 Each year, this committee puts on the “Women Build Nations” Conference, where many gather to learn and encourage each other in their quest for equality within building trades. Also, Carisa is an advocate for women’s rights within her union, and works tirelessly to improve communication and appreciation with leaders of the union. ✊What's more, she was recently recognized by 'Elevator World Magazine' in their “People” issue for her climb to the top in a male-dominated field. 😃⠀
Carisa attributes her success to the lessons learned from her mother, “who was fierce, independent, and strong beyond measure.” Carisa often reflects on this quote from Estee Lauder, “I didn’t get there by wishing for it or hoping for it, but by working for it.” 💪⠀
And working for it is what she has done indeed! Thank you, Carisa for being a role model and fighting for women in male-dominated industries! 🦄😍⠀
Coast Collective is so fortunate to have Lillian Tetreault's beautiful paintings gracing our gallery walls. Lillian's landscapes capture the light and warmth of mountains, rivers, waterfalls, and other local scenes. Glowing colours reflect impressions of extended travel in North and South America, the Mediterranean, New Zealand, and Polynesia. Lillian's hope is to highlight the beauty and fragility of our planet. Please stop into Coast Collective to see Lillian's paintings in person and so much more. Our GIFTS AND WISHES show runs until December 23rd, and our Christmas party is on Sunday, December 16th from 1-4 pm. There will be food, punch and great shopping! Bring your Christmas shopping list with you. We have something for everyone.
Trying out product photography for @ribanabangladesh with @shophobe
I must say I am really impressed with the brand. I actually tried out their charcoal soap ages ago when they had just launched and I am so excited to try out their new goat milk soap!
