Take Care of Yourself from the Inside Out

Well, I haven’t posted in quite some time. I’ve had a lot of family issues and it really brought me to take time out for myself. I’ve seen how stressed many of my family members have gotten and health have failed. I have already had a pulmonary embolism, but I plan to stick around for many years to come.


We often don’t think of everyday minor stresses as what can cause major health ailments. It’s time to take care of yourself inside and out. I know it’s easier to just purchase a fabulous new ring or bracelet and say, this is it… I’m doing well because I look good. But soon, the outward appearances will fade.

My mother always says my main issue is that I have such a weak immune system. That’s one thing I won’t argue when it comes to “Mother is always right”! I’m working hard building my businesses and I’ve been tired. And then trying to take care of family members, it’s stressful.

Now I have a friend that is totally into organic products. Me, I can’t really do that. I’m a pass on the processed and easy food type of girl. But, she did tell me about how those pesky acai and goji berries are beneficial in life. (I say pesky because I get tired of ads). She suggested I try the Green Superfood powder she takes. It’s supposed to be packed with a bunch of antioxidants and vitamins and helps boost the immune system. Surely, can’t hurt now can it?

Well, after a few weeks on this, I can tell you I feel pretty good. With the ever-changing weather in Chicago, I haven’t sneezed or coughed once. I’ll keep giving it a go and see how my summer goes with this. I bought the Parker Naturals Raw and Organic Green Superfood Powder and gotta tell you using it is not hard at all. I just mix a scoop in my smoothies and it blends right in. I love that it doesn’t make your foods taste awful or heavy feeling.

Ingrid Bracelet

Ingrid Bracelet

Ingrid’s is an instant modern classic. With the winning color palette of neutral black, white, and gold, Ingrid conveys art deco inspired sophistication. We love the added interest of the trio of gold balls separating each bar. Ingrid will pair beautifully with a gold necklace.

Start Your Day Off Healthy

You can’t expect to look great all day if you are starving before you leave the house in the morning. Sure, wearing hot fashionable earringsand necklacesfrom Mest’ique Boutique are helping your outward appearance, but true beauty starts from within. So take a few moments of your morning to start your day off right.
Fruit and Cheese
Of course, fruit is good for you! It’s a bonus that it’s tasty too. Fruit provides your body with natural sugars to get you energized. Cheese is an excellent source of calcium and protein. You can toss this all in a zip lock container or plastic baggie and hit the road. Also, consider a handful of granola or your favorite nuts, such as walnuts or almonds.
Fresh Fruit Smoothie
Ok, so this is not 100% fresh, but it’s as close as possible. Sometimes we intend on eating fruit daily and it sits around our home and rot. Eww. So, I always buy a large bag of mixed fruit. It comes with peach slices, whole strawberries, and blackberries. There are many combinations out there or you can just purchase a single fruit item. Purchase a container of low-fat yogurt (I generally purchase Vanilla flavored). You’ll also need a container of OJ.
So in the mornings, just grab a few pieces of fruit and throw in the blender. This allows it to thaw out a bit to blend smoothly. Then, before you hit the door, add a ½ cup of yogurt, ½ cup of OJ, and a drop or two of honey if you’d like. Then blend and pour into your to-go cup.
Have a Taste of Italy
I love Italian bread and generally keep some around the house. You can add a fresh fruit spread, cream cheese, or peanut butter. Another good choice is to keep shredded mozzarella cheese, sprinkle a bit on, slice up some cherry tomatoes, add on top, and toss in the microwave for 30 seconds or so. You can drizzle with a touch of EVOO if you’d like. Yum.
