I think I've said it a thousand times, but I LOVE being a girl. My mother would even say it's been in my genetic makeup since Day One. There is photo evidence of me twirling around in my grandmother's blonde wig and feather boa at age three, declaring to my family that I'd be a "movie star" who lived in Hollywood someday. I like to think that three-year-old version of me still lives on and inspires me daily.
There is so much power in our femininity. When you learn to tap into that vibration, you unlock a world of inspiration and strength that you never imagined existed. I know that for me personally, I am my best self when I feel absolutely gorgeous. When I'm in that outfit that just makes me feel so beautiful and confident, with a few strands of vintage pearls strung around my neck, in a pair of heels, and spritzed in my favorite Chanel perfume (it's Coco Mademoiselle, for the record). I get my best work done when I'm in a luxurious hotel room, or when my apartment is spotlessly clean and there are candles burning everywhere. Nothing gets me going quite like a salon blow dry, and if there is one thing I love it's taking myself out to a beautiful restaurant for a glass of champagne. I call this raising my glam vibration.
When I designed my home study program, Glitter, Guts & Glam, I made sure to dedicate an entire week to this process. Some may see it as fluff, but if I showed you the flurry of emails I've received from women who did their "glam homework" you would die. In fact, I got the largest response about the "Glam Week" than any other part of the program. It just goes to show that we don't spend nearly enough time in this playful space. These women reported feeling a renewed sense of self, confidence, self-love, and the list goes on. These small tweaks to the way we look and feel are so much more powerful than they may seem. And I say small because it truly does not take much. I'm not telling you to parade around the supermarket in an Oscar ball gown, but a swipe of red lipstick or a few gold bangle bracelets can truly be a game changer.
For this week, think about how you can raise your glam vibration. What makes you feel your most beautiful? Make a list and write it down in your journal. And if you need a permission slip or a little extra push, let's work on it together.
With love, bubbles and pearls,
