My fear for our society is we have grown numb to real authentic relationships and expectations!

At a click of button we have the ability to compare our relationships to others… the grass is always greener on the other side scenario.

We are all searching for perfection in our partners, our bodies and careers…

Perfect is the illusion of authenticity and if you find something real you may throw it away looking at someone else’s over edited projection …

No wonder our whole society is anxious,disconnected, depressed and numb. We are addicted to a false sense of reality! We would rather stare at screens instead of human souls

I find myself taking time out to just be and really nurture my mind body and soul… Our worlds norm has literally made us all sick so I am doing the not so normal thing.

How to find happiness in the chaos!

Everything happens for a reason: the good, the bad, & the ugly…

I know this is a cliche you have heard many times. How bad do you want to punch me in the face this second? Here’s the thing no one likes struggle, but what if I can switch up your mind set and shake up your world. Give me until the end of this blog post to do so.

This statement was born because every time I forced something to be different was when I suffered. It was always chaos, heartbreak, illness and I am not saying give up, but I am saying accept it. Two very different things.

When I accepted what my reality was and moved in fluidity to this I was gifted something better out of chaos and rebel. It was like a dance where you let life lead and you are gifted a new blessing from your demise.

My life was not a cookie cutter life, we moved around a lot, I was poor, bullied and constantly felt alone. My mom was ill and was in and out of hospitals. She did her best, but People judged us and I learned fast to act happy and to be whatever I needed to be to survive.

I would often wish for friends, a mom who wasn’t sick, a stable home, to travel and was constantly trying to change everything. Force, force, force which resulted in pain, pain, pain!
However, I surrendered and accepted some huge pain points, such as, I can’t learn the same way as before because of brain aneurysm and accepting that I had a severe ED and moved through it. I was gifted with a real best friend and some amazing blessings.
I grew stronger from the ashes and that paved the way for friendships, love, a purpose and authentic relationships.

When I pushed for what I thought was right, I was often scorned. When I fought for friends they often betrayed me. When I fought for my moms approval my eating disorder got worse & when I fought for anything it often blew up in my face. Trust the process, let it go it’s not for you… Surrender!

Clear Skin Tip

Tip Tuesday for clear skin do a professional mask or facial peel at least once a month and an at home mask at least once a week!☺️

Every 28 days for young people or longer for older people. Your skin cells shed leaving trapped oil, p bacteria, build up of dead skin and dirt on the skin! Thus contributing to breakouts ✨

You want to remove that and deep clean your pores! Your skin will become clear, youthful and glowing! Your products will absorb properly and you’ll have less active breakouts.

Contact me if you are interested in some masks that helped me or your own personal assessment ✨

Mental health and fueling the mind

Brain health is such a passion of mine for so many reasons…

One of them being that I’ve struggled with anxiety, a brain aneurysm, an eating disorder, losing my memory completely and body dysmorphia! Due to this happiness seemed foreign to me and a chase I could never grasp!

I set out on a journey since I was 19 to be happy and healthy, and it always seemed one step away from me. I’ve tried everything from reiki, huna, crazy diets, meditation for a year, therapy for years, LOA (you name it) I’ve tried it, treatment centres deemed me hopeless, doctors told me to write my own will… this girl has been around the world searching for happiness.

Now it’s my passion fueling the brain properly with my soul centred tribe 🌸🌈… getting people off toxic skin care and healing your body with food and supplements that actually work!

These factors all impact your body and the mind! Not to mention I’ve done this all while modelling for my own brand. You don’t need to be ashamed of your struggle. You are not alone!

It’s my mission to help as many women and men feel supported, become truly happy and improve their health.

Itoc Italian & Expanding Reawakeningbeauty

I recently started a web radio show and podcast partnered with my sister and ITOC ITALIAN – For the Love of Everything Italian in order to start bridging gaps, making intercultural the norm and having a real massive impact on a global scale. As we are all connected.

It aligned so well with #Reawakeningbeauty as I have a clear vision to bridge people to better health, mindset and confidence. I strive for everyone to connect as a whole and know that we are all united. In the next couple weeks I am clearly going to share what Reawakeningbeauty means.

It’s so important for us all to know we are not alone and that we can take our health, happiness and mindset into our own hands and help others do the same.

ITOC MEDIA stands “for being committed to promoting our cultural society that lives with peace and harmony to the rest of the world through the universal language of English”

So going forward my mission is to share my skills and resources for my following to feel happy, healthy and be less alone. You can listen to the podcast at 6 am and 6pm daily. On new wave.

Who am I?

Have you ever told yourself this story and stood in your own way? Who am I to share what I can do? Who am I to help others? Really who am I before I was told who I should be? Who am I if I’m not perfect? Who am I if this friend doesn’t like me and does my voice matter? …

These are all questions I’ve asked myself at one point in my life …

I’ve sat and pondered what if Thomas Edison had this thought, Oprah or Deepak…
what if they said who am I and didn’t share? What if their ego kept them small and they choose to stay silent?

I’ll tell who you are, you are presence, powerful and worthy of this moment of full acceptance of who you are in this second. You are an extension of this human race, a collective collaboration and I am thankful for you being part of Reawakeningbeauty.

You are special just as you are in your humanness.

Lots of love,
Reawakeningbeauty
