Why There’s No Such Thing as Competition

Short answer: If you feel like you have competition, then you’re doing a horrible job at being unique, different, or bringing value to your audience and customers. I get this all the time: other beauty brands who want to work with our brand on the editorial side, find out that we also have our own cosmetic line of products, then suddenly sees us as competition to their own business. WRONG! Besides those other beauty brands simply projecting their frustration with their own sales/revenue onto us, it’s incorrect to assume that the TMB cosmetic line is even their competition. Ohhh snap, […]

Top Beauty Tips for the Aging Woman

Notice that I didn’t say “anti-aging” woman? In my opinion, those two little words are extremely toxic and I have been eradicating them from my life. Aging is a privilege that we receive every morning when we awake to another day. Now that we’ve defined us aging gracefully instead of fearing time, let’s move onto a more fun conversation of skin and beauty, as it’s important to feel our best at any age. As we age, our skin gets dry, flaky and new nooks and crannies are popping up everyday. The answer towards combatting these ailments is moisture, and lots […]

Simple 3-Day Food Detox

Are you feeling bloated or fatigued, suffering from acne, digestive issues or brain fog? If so, you may be in need of a little quick and easy diet detox. We’ve all been there: exhaustion, lack of sleep and too much business in our lives. But the problem could actually be inward versus outward. Our bodies are exposed to toxins everywhere – from the food we eat, to the air we breathe and even the personal care products we use. And the most gentle and easy way to detoxify is through nutrition. Take three days for yourself to participate in this […]

Audience Building 101: Introduction to Easy Email List Building

Contrary to popular (amateur) belief, email is not dead. Email is the single highest converting touch point for audience cultivation and sales conversions. If you are a business, brand or blogger, and your platform relies on the Internet, then email should be your #1 marketing focus. Yep, email list building is more important than the number of social media followers that you have. And referring to the above statement, if email were dead, then you couldn’t use your email to log into your social media, right? Now that we have the air cleared, let me illustrate with some real metrics […]

Harnessing Your Emotions for Good

Emotions are a confusing, yet apparent force in our lives. We can ignore them for what they are as they expand and grow. Or we can face them, embrace them and let them be. It really is our choice. Our inner soul is linked to our conscious mind via emotional outpouring: happiness, sadness, disappointment, infuriation, or loneliness. They are all an unavoidable journey that will fester deep within until one of two things happen. We either embrace it, feeling all that it has to offer, then set it free. Or we suppress it and avoid, ultimately allowing it to alter […]

Guide to Kjaer Weis

One of my favorite eco-luxe makeup brands is Kjaer Weis. Clean beauty meets real performance with its high-end makeup products that also happen to have some gorgeous color collections. There is so much to love about their line! The first thing you may notice is that Kjaer Weis comes packaged in some of the most eco-friendly, yet chic packaging around. Its beautiful metal cases are designed to be refillable to minimize waste. As much as I love the gorgeous packaging, I have an insider tip: I find it much easier (and cheaper) to purchase its makeup refills and house them […]

How to Beat Performance Anxiety

Yes, this is a real thing. And, no, it’s not the thing you think it is, from some drug commercials you may have seen targeted towards middle-aged men. Many of us experience this or know someone who has fallen victim to this, no matter your age or gender. Performance anxiety is different from the normal level of jitters and nerves you feel before a big test. It’s different from the fear of a squirrel trying to eat you. It’s more severe than the initial feelings of stage fright, although that’s where it’s been studied more extensively (Langendörfer et al., 2006; […]

Let’s Talks About Hair, Baby

Did you know that most conventional hair products include unhealthy, chemically-laced synthetic ingredients that are linked to awful things like infertility, respiratory issues, hormone disruptors and other conditions you don’t want? And that’s just for hair products, let alone the rest of the products in our beauty routine! I’ve been so pleasantly surprised with the new wave of natural hair care, not only in ingredients but also in function and performance. So much so that I forget that they’re clean and green. If you’ve tried enough non-toxic hair products, you probably have noticed that the ingredients are amazing, but they’re […]

Hacks for Better Sleep, Naturally

Dear Sleep, I miss you. Please come back to me. How many times have we thought this or written it down in a journal? Sleep, it’s one of those natural human needs that somehow gets tossed to the wayside. Thanks to work, family, friends and the internet webs, it seems like we just can’t get enough shut eye these days. But instead of thinking of sleep as an optional activity, where we can shortcut our snooze time in order to make way for other priorities, the act of sleep itself should be regarded up there with eating and going to […]

Top 3 Tools for Beautiful DIY Graphics

Having a website or blog isn’t just about the words on the page, but making it look visually appealing, too. First impressions really are the most important, especially for a stranger or new site visitor that’s checking you out for the first time on your website, blog or social media accounts. People often make split-second decisions on if they will like your brand or not solely based on how you “look” in the online world. A big problem for online brands and bloggers is creating graphics yourself (I’ve been there and I’m still struggling with this), since outsourcing for graphic […]
