A favorite seasonal ritual: first batch of pesto! This year, I’m storing in recycled spice jars and can’t wait to make pesto everything. #huesgarden #basilpesto #summerofselfcare #environmentalistatheart

Blueberry Hibiscus Rosé Mojito ☀️ Mint is growing like kudzu right now and this sugar-free mojito packs an antioxidant punch. My cabinets are chock full of herbal teas for mixing and matching flavors all summer and making quick syrups. This #mojito doubles down on the skin-loving blueberries with a hint of floral hibiscus and topped with sparkling rosé- my new absolute favorite mojito! ☀️
In each highball:
Add 4 lime wedges, 8 or so mint leaves, a handful of blueberries and 1 ounce blueberry-hibiscus syrup.* Muddle. Fill with ice. Add 2 ounces lite rum. Top with sparkling rosé and gently stir. Garnish with mint sprig. ☀️

☀️ Kicking off a summer series of skin-glowing cocktails with the SUPER GREEN ROSÉ VODKA SPRITZ starring the nutrient-dense superfood, Moringa, a powerful antioxidant all the wellness bloggers are loving now and a favorite of supermodel turned organic skincare founder Miranda Kerr. I’ve been obsessed.
☀️
The healthful benefits are all in the green tea blackberry moringa stevia syrup with added collagen but also in the garnishes, so be sure to eat them!

1 1/2 ounces Three Olives Rosé Vodka
Coconut La Croix
Prosecco to top
Build over ice in a wine glass and stir. Garnish with cucumber slices, cinnamon sticks and blackberries. ☀️
*4 Yogi Green Tea Blackberry Moringa tea bags, 1 cup stevia, 1 cup water. Combine over heat and stir until dissolved. Add 3 scoops collagen powder and stir. Keep chilled.

I communicate and share best through writing but I'm horrible at keeping up with marketing and publicity and promoting. I like to think my small missives will sell themselves but in a world that is ever increasingly loud, my voice isn't. So I do rely on my family and friends to help get the word out about #TheSeasonal . Earlier this month I offered a #giveaway . You simply shared a friend's name under the meme. A drawing was supposed to be held on Mother's Day. I forgot. I'm sorry. I think I need a secretary. Lol Or a self-remind app maybe. Mother's Day came and went. Let's just say I'm here to offer a belated Mother's Day gift on #selfcare . I pulled a friend from one list and a friend from the second list and put the names in a cup. Then I pulled a winner to receive the #summerofselfcare . The friend's name who was chosen was @cleblanc1955 and the friend who tagged her was @txforestmama . Both friends will receive a complimentary copy of this summer's #retreat. I can't wait to gift you ladies with this new retreat missive and spend a summer intent on our #selfcare...what it means to us, how we find it, and how we embrace it.

Got my kitchen organized and cleaned today! So much better! And I did this crazy thing where I turned my phone off for an entire hour 😱 #summerofselfcare

Drink water. Read all the books. & mind my business. #summerofselfcare

When you're 52 and your schedule looks like a parade of monkeys and earlier you sat down with the guy who could tell you exactly what is on the horizon in terms of retirement (or not) for you and yours, then the NP hands you a little yellow post-it suggesting supplements versus meds, and you get a clear mammo report, and come Monday your husband is leaving a pretty secure job of 20+ years for a new adventure, and you discuss getting your youngest child her license because you never envisioned having to be squirreling so much for so many (what happened to the island and margueritas???), then late at night you get a slight scare with an aging parent; you spread out your mat that's been used only when the grandkids show up, and spend a quiet morning enjoying some much needed #selfcare .Life is a constant breathing in and out of life, isnt it? Do we save a breathe and a prayer for ourselves?

The Gift of Being Yourself: the Sacred Call to Self-Discovery by David G. Benner
*
“In order for our knowing of God’s love to be truly transformational, it must become the basis for our identity. ...An identity grounded in God would mean that when we think of who we are, the first thing that would come to mind is our status as someone who is deeply loved by God.”
*
I loved this little 97-page book! It explores identity from a psychological and spiritual perspective and expands on the truth that we can only know God by knowing ourselves and we can only know ourselves by knowing God. I read it quickly but would like to come back to it again and take my time with it. So many ideas packed into this little book! Only caveat I would say is that I would like to balance this with books about identity written by women and/or people of color since those aspects are so central to identity. So glad I was able to borrow this from the @greaterlovecollective library as we prepare for our summer of self care! Self care begins with self awareness, and this book is a great step in exploring identity further. Check it out!

Made a house call today to see a friend whose skin needs a little extra TLC. My Glowing program doesn’t start for several weeks, but if you’re local I’m happy to bring the Celavive line to you to try first. Or, mark your calendar for Thursday, June 7 and join me in Freeport for a Beautiful Self Care Social!

Happy Wednesday, book friends. I loooooovvvveeeee this weather right now. Yesterday I left work at 5 and sat in a park for an hour and just read. FOR AN HOUR. That hasn’t happened since Christmas break. It was so peaceful.
.
I am officially declaring this summer my summer of self-care. Reading, working out, eating well, exploring, meditating, practicing my faith, sleeping, and spending time with loved ones will be my top priorities. Yesterday was a reminder that prioritizing what brings me joys makes me a better version of myself. What do you do for self care?

One of the simplest, most often repeated self care tips that I give women in my programs is, “Don’t wash your face like you’re washing the floor.” .
Today I was greeted by a colleague with, “Your skin always looks so good, you’re GLOWING” (for which I thanked her, heartily)!
.
I attribute this shining face to the following: I wash my face every morning and every evening, without fail. I invest in yummy skincare products with cell-renewing properties and zero toxic preservatives. And, I beam at myself... a practice which has taken years to cultivate, a knowing, self-affirming smile to start and end each day.
.
This is simple, doable, meaningful, self care on purpose! It’s what I share once a season in Glowing, my 28-day self care & skincare program. Summer Glowing is coming up! Join me for 4 weeks of beaming into your mirror, washing your face with gentle-but-radical self love, and a deep dive into personal self care practice that will last a lifetime. We begin Monday, June 18. Link in profile, of course! 🤗

The sunshine today has us dreaming about our Annual 1-Day Summer Yoga Retreat! Join Brenda and Bethany to relax, restore, and rejuvenate at a tranquil private oasis in Schuylkill County! #summerofselfcare

It’s time to make self-care a priority again! Today we’re kicking off our #summerofSELFcare challenge—over the next three weeks, we’ll share daily tips on our Instagram Stories to help refresh your day-to-day routine, nourish your body, and connect with yourself and others in meaningful ways. This week’s focus is “refresh.” For the next seven days, we’ll work together to hit your reset button so that you can tackle life from new perspectives. Ready, #TeamSELF? 👍

El Yoga es una practica ancestral no una tendencia , es para todos sin importar el genero , el peso, la figura o la raza, no solamente para los de abdomen plano y músculos abultados, el yoga es escéncia y filosofía es equilibrio físico mental y espiritual, es para una búsqueda de autorrealización.
Es alegría y respeto
Yoga es Samadhi
Samadhi es Yoga

Day 18 of the #Selflovingyogis July challenge ❣Boat Pose
.
Sit on the floor with the legs out in front of you. You will balancing on your sit bones which could possibly hurt if you are not used to it, so you can place a folded blanket underneath to give you a bit of cushion. Find a nice upright seat as you lengthen the spine, bend the knees with the feet flat on the floor, and bring the arms out in front hovering by the sides of the knees. Still keeping the spine lengthened lean back rocking onto that sweet spot of the sit bones, and lifting the feet up off to the floor, and shins parallel to the floor as you balance on the sit bones. If it's hard to find that balance just yet with both feet off the floor, lift one foot at a time off the ground, finding balance on each side till you can balance with both off the floor, or you can use props to prop up your feet a bit higher up.
.
