“Ser únicamente quien eres, en un mundo que hace todo lo posible, continuamente, por convertirte en todos los demás, implica luchar la batalla más difícil que puede librar cualquier ser humano; no dejes nunca de hacerlo"
E. E. Cummings
Nunca te des x vencida.
Confía en tu intuición, ella tiene certezas, abrázala fuerte y sigue..
I spend months working on a collection from ideas to execution. The photo shoot, every season, is like the birth of all of those ideas into a reality for all of the senses. The marathon doesn’t stop there, after the shoot is the narration of the story through images to reach my woman and appeal to her senses. Something that starts with a vision through clothing, hopefully becomes more than just a garment. My hope is that my clothes become the garments women wear as they live and tell their stories. My hope is that women feel the journey I’ve taken through the process and it empowers them through theirs. 👊🏼
With a name like Powerful Stuff, we HAVE to go big and boozy for this drink! The song is a big easy rock style song with a great riff and sounds as American as you can get. It almost has a country feel – I can almost see the line dance and cowboy boots. We need to go American whiskey here.
We’ll start with Wild Turkey 101 – 50.5% ABV (so 101 proof) gives us a solid base to work from. Wild Turkey 101 was our go-to premium back in my Fridays days over the Jim Beam in the rail, so I have a bit of an affinity for the brand too.
So I started out thinking of classic Whiskey drinks, the Old Fashioned, Manhattan, Sour etc. I’ve twisted all these in the past, as they’re classics for a reason. Then I thought about the Sazerac – and my brain got started. A quick look online showed that a lot of people have made a Sazerac replacing the Whiskey with Amaro (or a blend of up to 8), but I want to replace the Absinthe.
While the Sazerac has a history of being made with Cognac before Whiskey, the later is more common today. Amaro has such a distinctive flavour and the bitterness this drink usually gets from the Absinthe, so I think we’ll do okay to switch it up this way.
I also really like the simple serve for the Sazerac – but I want this nice and cold so we’ll freeze our Old Fashioned glass.
Powerful Stuff Cocktail Recipe
2oz (60ml) Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon
¼oz (7.5ml) Fernet Branca Amaro
1 sugar cube
2 dashes of Peychaud’s Bitters
Because we’re using frozen glassware and I’m happy to keep all the Fernet in the drink (who wouldn’t) we’ll just stir all the ingredients together with ice and get it nicely chilled down. Keep the Old Fashioned glass in the freezer until the rest of the drink, including the lemon twist garnish is ready. Pour the drink and serve immediately so its still frosty when it gets to the table.

My thought of the day ~ never give up on love, to me all kinds mean more than the skies above, quality friendships, are no short from epic, the ones that have your back, and who help you to get back on the horse if or when you fall off track, they are worth keeping, appreciating and celebrating, then there's the blessing of family, mine mean the absolute world to me, we might disagree or argue, but at the end of the day I would be lost without you, finally there's one kind that I haven't been lucky to come across yet, and that's the special person who will without a doubt stop and let, you show them your vulnerabilities and insecurities, without having to worry about your safety, they will accept your past unconditionally, and treat you not as an option but a priority, the sort of connection, that is full of magic and passion, yes I long for that spark, that will in every way warm my heart, I haven't yet but I will find my forever person, and together we will then become our best human versions 🙏❤️☺️ #love#powerfulstuff#magic#epic#romantic#canthelpit#giving#sharing#writing#expressing 🙏❤️☺️
I've been feeling quite nauseous most of today. I've kept food and fluids down, so not concerned it's anything nasty, but it's definitely not a comfortable feeling. I didn't want to miss boxing tonight, so I grabbed my bottle of DiGize to settle my tummy and see me through the night. .
I think this is one of my favourite oils. It may not smell amazing to everyone, but it's super powerful. It does have quite a strong flavour, so I put a drop in a tablespoon of milk and down she goes. I didn't want to push the limits too much, so I didn't play, but it got me through boxing and umpiring. .
Natural living is the best. I know tonight that I've only used pure natural oils to settle my uneasiness. Nothing synthetic or with crazy ingredients I can't pronounce! .
About today...intense, inclusive, courageous, bold, unadulterated, transparent, therapeutic, and most of all beautiful in a way seldom seen. Courtney, Dr. Conte, Nikol, Tonya, & Trisha, thank you for the priceless gift. #PowerfulStuff
The experience was extraordinary!! Thanks for the opportunity CG!! Congratulations to these amazing women on their extended journey that highlights and showcases their divine purpose. Truly, the “House of Healing” with Dr. Conte will be one worthy of heaven’s many blessings. @courtneyglaude @drconteterrell @nikol.johnson.560 @bwifbrilliantwomeninfilm
Why is it that all the best natural stuff for you taste like dirt? I have tried beets in every form possible; fresh or canned, steamed, grilled or juiced, even tried to hide it coleslaw and still taste like bitter dirt. But this Super Beets, my friends, is the way to get heart healthy beets in a berry taste. I am truly impressed, so of course had to share! Definitely worth a try! #superbeets#superfood#humanN#gottatryit#hearthealthy#mynewcoffee#energy#powerfulstuff#veggies
The wake up call I most likely subconsciously ordered from @wholeheartedwoman 😂:
“In case you didn’t notice (because I totally didn’t 🤦🏻♀️), today is already the 2nd of July! 😱
(And now the 3rd in Aus! 🌏)
First, how is the year officially more than half over?!
And second, what exciting things do you have going on this month?! 🎉“
I’ll be scheduling time today to write down my July desires. In real pen. On real paper📝
Because, in case you didn’t know, you’re 42% more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down. Science y’all 👊🏼 ———————————————
I’d love to know how many of you set goals for yourself? If you do, have you tried writing them down & how do YOU find this??
I always LOVE a new month for refocusing! It’s proven that writing down your goals and sharing them with an accountability partner or group makes it far more likely for things to actually happen! We are also half way through 2018 now! 😵😵 Are you where you hoped to be by now? What are you gonna make happen with the rest of it?! Set some goals and tell yo frands!!
I just got into this goal and accountability thing, and I tell ya what guys... it freakin worksss!! I am writing down my monthly goals for my business as well as some personal development goals today for July! You should def do it if you haven’t already! Remember, goals aren’t goals unless they are specific, trackable and have a deadline!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 #yougetoutwhatyouputin#PoweRFulStuff
Dream job!! I'd love to harvest and tend to these wonderful gardens, solar is the best way to go, unless your using water or wind to power your operations, then, more POWER TO YOU!!!!♡♡ #solarpanels#realfood#savetheworld ♨️🌞💧🌀 ....Photo credit @loransolar 👌✌👌
“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid” John 14:27 NLT.
We cannot expect to receive our peace from this world! We can ONLY expect to receive enduring peace from our fellowship with & abiding in Christ! The peace God gives us is a SUPERnatural peace that surpasses ALL understanding (Philippians 4:7)! It’s a piece of God’s peace, which reminds us that in the end, IN CHRIST WE WIN! It’s a peace that gives us HOPE in seemingly hopeless situations! It’s a peace that reminds us that our God is ABLE, through HIS mighty POWER, TO DO ABOVE ALL WE ASK, IMAGINE or THINK! It’s God’s PEACE! If you haven’t received this supernatural peace yet...please ASK FOR IT! It’s a gift from God...it’s a part of our Christian benefits package! So ask for your gift & KEEP ASKING until you’re running over in peace!!! It’s yours...HE’s waiting on you to be ready to receive it...to want it...ask & YOU SHALL RECEIVE! I’m praying God’s supernatural PEACE be upon you, in Jesus name, FOR HIS GLORY AMEN! —————————————
