1. WANDERLUST

    Travel is a powerful way to heal the soul, cleanse the mind, and open the heart. Whether you spend your time in the middle of nowhere, on a secluded island, at a group retreat, or alone in a bustling city, being in a different environment has been known to be therapeutic to your mind, body, and soul. Today, I want to share with you an incredible company from Australia (definitely a place I would love to visit one day). 

    La Biquini is a Brisbane-based label delivering a fun and unique yet sexy range of swimwear to girls who crave something different. Each piece is carefully designed and delicately handcrafted in Australia, and bears a unique fusion of colour, shape, fit and quality. Designer Fern Suarez continually explores all possibilities as she creates, and with a major emphasis on superior fabrics, trims and workmanship, only the very special pieces make the final cut for production. Your little piece of La Biquini will be one to cherish for many summers to come.

  5. SUMMER LOVE

    Hello guys! Here’s a fresh simple Quinoa noodles recipe with Olives, Basil, Garlic, and Lime that I threw together for lunch in no time. Quinoa noodles (organic, gluten free/ wheat free, fair trade, vegan and kosher) were tossed with olive oil, olives, garlic, basil and lime zest, then finished off with a squeeze of bright lime juice for a simple, happy, light pasta dish. A little bit of chopping, and zesting, followed by some basic sautéeing was all that was required.

    I received these free al dente pasta last week from Little Life Box. The Little Life Box is a monthly subscription program designed to provide health conscious or health curious people with a variety of healthy options as alternatives for common everyday items. The boxes are filled with food and cosmetic items that are likely unfamiliar to the consumer, and provide an opportunity to explore a healthier version of products.

  6. THE PURPOSE OF YOUR LIFE

    Finding your destiny or your purpose in life is not the most easily achievable task, as it takes time to get to know yourself. But, the more you know yourself, the more you will be certain of what you want in life and where your destiny lies. Once you start planning out the map of your goals, you will be able to work toward success by taking productive steps forward each day.

    For all of you who feel like life can be better, why not make it better starting now?

    1. You know what you want in life

    This is probably the most essential aspect of living. 

    It is important to know what you want, both in this moment and in the long run, because only then will you be able to take daily small steps toward making your goals realities and putting your ambitions into action. The key word here is “drive.”

    2. You are not afraid to make decisions

    You have the power to create the life you’ve always wanted. You simply need to stand firm behind choices you make. Come to think of it, every single choice we make has the potential to be life-changing and that is the main reason why we shouldn’t be afraid to take decisions. Listen to your heart and you won’t go wrong.

    3.  You always dream big

    Once you discover your inner drive, all you need to do is focus your energy on developing it. The sweetest money you can earn is what you earn from doing what you love. Discover what inspires you and continue to do it. Never underestimate your dreams or yourself.

    4. You try to live as much as possible

    You recognize the beauty of life everywhere you go. 

    True success belongs to people who work hard for it. We live in a highly competitive society, and if you want to be successful, you need to have skills, knowledge and qualities that surpass your competition. You must build a positive attitude and live every day as if it is your last.

    5. You know that magic is in the little things

    Life is indeed short and we should learn to appreciate each moment, which is no easy challenge. Love life. F.

  9. FLOW INTO LIFE

    We all want to be happy and healthy, but for many of us that means reaching a certain level of success as well. So, I have created a list of questions to help gauge your level of success.

    You’re building your future right now. And every decision you make is setting the boundaries, rules, and habits for what’s to come. So, instead of waiting to reach a milestone before you can build the lifestyle you want, let’s set the right foundation now for future success to grow. Because happy, healthy people change the world. Burned out people just fuel their egos.

    1. Am I failing enough?

    Thomas Edison said it best, “I am not a failure, I just found 1,000 ways electricity will not work.” But with a little more perseverance, electricity was born. Never give up on your dreams — keep going! With each new failure you have a new opportunity to achieve success. If you aren’t failing enough, you aren’t trying hard enough.

    2. How much fun am I having?

    Successful people gauge their success by the amount of fun they’re having. Successful people absolutely love their jobs, so for many it doesn’t feel like they work a day of their life — in fact it’s mostly play.

    3. Do I use my fear to motivate action?

    We all have fears, but the difference between successful people and those who ignore their dreams is fear. Successful people use their fear to motivate them to action instead of letting it take them out of the game and pull them under. Fear can be used as a tool to help guide you to your inspiration.

    4. Am I connected to my inspiration?

    You have to stay inspired and use actions to create new ideas. Inspiration is the catalyst to self-actualization.

    5. Am I in a state of flow?

    Go with the flow, the waves of life with grace and ease, instead of fighting against the current and pushing in directions that are closed. Relax into the natural rhythm of your life and watch your dreams come true.

    Success is just as much an internal mindset as it is an outward experience. When you realize how much you have to contribute to the world and raise your standards to match that level, the rest will fall into place.

    Because success is really about consciously creating your dream life — the life you were born to live. And, when you do that, you’ll truly be living your life purpose. Love. F.
