Happy Fall in SoCal! ☀️🍂🌴It’s still in the high 80’s most days, but Mother Nature likes to trick us in the morning.

When traffic backs up, it's frustrating. But when a blood clot jams a vein or artery, it can be deadly. So learn the risk factors and know the signs and symptoms of thrombosis! Keep life flowing!

October 13th is World Thrombosis Day. As a DVT/PE survivor, today it's my job to bring awareness to my friends and family. Because 1 in 4 deaths worldwide is related to thrombosis and I sure as hell don't want that for you!

It can happen to anyone - so educate yourself! Mine resulted as a side effect from birth control! You hear about all those crazy side effects on tv from various medications and think "nah, that wouldn't happen to me." Welp- it can and it did for me. I'm not trying to scare you, but if it helps you recognize a sign or symptom, it could save your life! ❤️

5 years ago today: the day I trusted my gut and demanded a second opinion that potentially saved my life. 👍🏼
...
I’ll be discussing (in my stories) signs and symptoms and how to better lower your chances of developing DVTs and PEs over the next few weeks as we approach @worldthrombosisday on Oct 13.

This selfie was taken in the hospital after having been crying for a solid 8 hours because I was so confused, lost, and scared. I had finally chilled out once I got some food in me and out of the ER.

A year ago tonight, I was was driving home from being out of town. Exhausted, I went to bed early. The number of missed calls and text messages that I woke up to the next day was alarming.
...
“Where are you?”
“Are you ok?”
“Text me back!”
“Nicole!”
...
I tried to piece things together from a group text I’m in…still so confused, I stumble to the TV, turn it on…and it hit me.
...
While I wasn’t at Route 91 Festival, it’s an event that I would typically attend - I was originally going to attend. But dozens upon dozens of my friends did. Thankfully they all made it back home, but not without physical, mental, and emotional damage.
...
The country music family changed that night. The country music family strengthened more than ever that night too. And it’s a family I’m proud to be part of.

The face I make when I read that a product has “fragrance” in it. 😟
...
“Fragrance” is an undisclosed mixture that gives products scent. Sounds innocent enough until you learn that manufacturers are not required to disclose what those ingredients are! Many of those ingredients are known to cause rashes, headaches, irritants, environmentally harmful, and even carcinogens! 🤢
...
Check out the app Healthy Living by EWG and start scanning your personal care products. I try to keep to products with a rating of 3 or lower. Fragrance is rated an 8 with a moderate to high overall hazard! #nothanks

Seriously! Y’all! I’ve been in a cooking and meal prep funk! I’ve been totally uninspired (and kinda lazy, tbh). How on earth have you pulled yourself out of a cooking at home or meal prep rut?!

Amazing inspiration at Counter Training yesterday with so many incredible Beautycounter consultants. As many of you know, I developed THREE DVT’s and THREE PE’s…because my hormones were disrupted. …
So when I discovered a makeup and skincare company that is fighting the good fight in helping to get SAFER products into the hands of everyone…I had to learn more! Mix in the fact that Beautycounter is helping to move the needle when it comes to better regulations in personal care products, and that I can earn some moola with a side hustle…yup, I’m in! 💋

I always LOL at myself when applying my @beautycounter Color Pinch Cream Blush (in Hibiscus). A couple dots on each cheek, blended in, is all it takes to give me juuuust enough color and keeps my face from looking “flat” as I call it.
...
What’s even better is how COMFORTABLE I feel knowing this, and all of my other Beautycounter makeup, isn’t going to add any yuckiness into my system! Ain’t nobody got time for that! 💋

Trying to hang onto summer as long as I can with grilled peaches! 🍑☀️
...
I don’t have an exact recipe but here’s what I do:
-grill ripe peach halves for about 3 minutes/side
-using mascarpone cheese, I mix in a dash of cinnamon and a cap full of vanilla, stir until combined
-top each peach half with about one tablespoon of mascarpone cheese mixture and drizzle with honey
...
The perfect summer time dessert! 😍
