No matter where you live, no matter what your budget is, you can have great style. Knowing and understanding your lifestyle and needs will help you to cultivate your own unique style.
1. love and respect yourself as a unique individual, and learn to accept what you can not change and focus on your positive assets.
2. Enjoy the freedom of being the most attractive (the best you possible). Learn to be happy in your own skin. Keep in mind your body proportions, skin tone, and your lifestyle when cultivating your style and building your wardrobe.
3. Focus on and make use of these personal style boosters to achieve your own personal look:
Hairstyle a well put together look beings with a hairstyle that is well-groomed hair cut that is in proportion to your facial features.
Color can work wonders not only for your wardrobe but your over all appearance as well. Color can add depth and make you appear slimmer, taller, and boost your mood to a level that radiates confidence.
Accessories can speak in high volumes about you and your style. Accessories should be of the highest quality you can buy/afford. Find the best quality of shoes, scarves, handbags, jewelry, hats and etc.. sometimes you can get great bargains on items in off-season sales and also look at vintage or second-hand shops for deep discounted deals.
My journey to holistic health and wellness has been a long and challenging process, with so many trials and errors behind me, which had left me on many crossroads to searching for the perfect fit to my changing health and wellness needs.
Among these many paths I found various books, blogs and magazines that gave me a good footing to ask questions, seek broader resources and obtain more knowledge to tread further on my holistic journey.
In May of 2010 I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes and my whole view of health, fitness and wellness changed forever (will cover in more detail with a post). While trying to process the emotional and physical aspects with being diabetic it became clear that everything to my whole wellness is in ME, all I have to do is seek the knowledge of my roots (history, origin and culture), and there I will find the answers to emerging my complete wellness.
I am more geared to eating and creating 100% nature inspired plant-based foods from the earth. I have also transitioned to more holistic, natural and organic products, created in my kitchen or from other natural sources, that enhances my whole essence from the top of my crown to the tips of my feet.
My fitness which I refer to as my wellness is very simple which consists of running, yoga, lifting weights and walking. I do not put too much emphasis on what my body looks like, but just measure my progress on how I feel and what my body can do.
I am not a fitness professional and am not in any position to give fitness or training tips. I just know what works for me and benefits all areas of my life to bring whole balance peacefully and positively.

You are unique a one of a kind masterpiece, there will never be another YOU to walk this planet again so, love yourself first, if you do not who will?
Your longing for me is my message to you. All your attempts to reach me, are in reality my attempts to reach You. – Rumi
