To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don't need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself. When you accept yourself you feel radiant. Radiance comes from a woman knowing and owning her truth. When you love yourself, you maintain your radiance with self care.

When you shift your energy, the energy around you shifts… back into self-love.

FML… My life is a mess…a total disaster… How am I going to pay these bills?  I need a car… I need to get out of this house… I feel like the walls are caving in and I can’t see my way out… There’s nothing I can do to make this better.. My creativity has left the building. There’s not enough time in the day.. Nothing is working…everything is going to shit. I feel like a complete failure. I can’t do this anymore.. I just want to quit. Sound familiar? That was me recently, having a meltdown. Have you ever felt completely defeated by life?  So overwhelmed that you just feel like burning it all to the ground? I get it. One of the biggest obstacles to self love is measuring our worthy by how we feel. We can congratulate ourselves when we’re happy, feel like we have it all …

Claim Your Happiness!

By Kristin Layne | June 30, 2022

Happiness is this way. No, this way. If you do this you will be happy. No, wait, this is what really makes you happy. Did you hear about this car? This job? This brand? If you look like this you will be happy forever. If only I was younger I would be happier, if only I was older. I’ll be happy when _______. (Don’t even fill in the blank…) How many times have you said that to yourself? I know I have…waiting on the right job, relationship, vacation, amazon package, weight loss, new car…the list goes on… Why do we continue to waste precious time, waiting for things to fall into place so we can finally be happy? Humans roam all corners of the earth searching high and low for this elusive emotion. What makes one happy today will not do the job tomorrow and what makes you happy doesn’t …

Essential Summer Hair Care

By Kristin Layne | June 3, 2022

While we love spending endless days lounging by the pool or at the beach, we all know how heat and humidity can be detrimental to our hair. The sun’s overpowering rays can easily dry up our hair, causing uncontrollable frizz and breakage. To avoid the damage, get into the habit of “summer proofing” your hair. As you begin to partake in your summer endeavors, take a moment to brush up on some essential summer hair care tips to protect your hair. Summer Hair Care Tip #1: Avoid swimmer’s hair damage. The salt content in seawater draws water out of the hair and skin, while chlorine strips the hair of its natural protective oils. Prep your hair before and after taking a swim to protect against chlorine and salt water damage. PRO TIP: Use Oway Sunway Sun Protective Elixir before heading out to shield the hair from the damaging effects of …

12 Ways to Be Your Own Best Friend

By Kristin Layne | May 24, 2022

We can learn to be our own best friend. If we do, we have a friend for life. We can buoy ourselves up, give ourselves comfort and sustenance when there is no one else. ~ Mildred Newman & Bernard Berkowitz 12 Ways to Be Your Own Best Friend The longest relationship you will ever have in the history of your life is with yourself. Therefore, it’s up to you to labor over and cultivate the strength and depth of connection you have with yourself. 1. Praise yourself, rather than waiting for others to do it for you. When you do something you are proud of, dwell on it a little, praise yourself for it, relish the experience, take it in. 2. Realize that you are fundamentally worthy. Most of us equate failures in our lives with us personally being failures. We need to remember that if we outsource our self-worth …

The Embodiment of Self Love

By Kristin Layne | January 11, 2022

Happy New Year!! Welcome to 2022!  Did you know that the spiritual meaning of 222 is all about BALANCE, MANIFESTING MIRACLES and SEIZING NEW OPPORTUNITIES. When you see 222, allow it to remind you to keep the faith and stay true to your personal truths. In this life, there are no accidents. Everything happens for a reason. One of the greatest lessons I’ve learned is to be grateful that I didn’t end up with what I wanted. The Universe has your back even when things don’t work out the way you planned.  On New Year’s Eve I announced on my FB page that my family might be a lil extra excited for the New Year, in March we will be welcoming a new baby boy to our family. He is truly a MIRACLE. On March 18th, 2019, I was 10 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child when I began spotting …

Fall in love with yourself!

By Kristin Layne | October 7, 2021

SELF-LOVE VS. SELF-CARE: DO YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCE? There’s no escaping the self-love/self-care movement! It’s easy to get them confused and intertwine their meanings. Both are there to essentially improve your life, but knowing how and when to use each one can is key. It’s so important that we take care of ourselves and ensure our lives are well rounded, fulfilled, and serve us. Not just doing what’s expected of us. We’re living in a time where we have quick, easy access to almost anything! This has seen our generation has become quite consumed with ‘stuff’ and the materialistic pleasures in life. However, rarely do they provide true happiness and even if they do, it’s short-lived.  Self-love and self-care can often cost very little, if anything at all! Self-love is “regard for one’s well-being and happiness.” You want to ensure your own cup is full, and that what it’s full of …

Align your Hair care with the Cosmos!

By Kristin Layne | September 11, 2021

Nature is not only what is found on the ground, but also that which is above us. Lifting our eyes to the sky , there is a powerful and mysterious force that watches over the life of mankind and nature: THE MOON. The moon has an effect on plantings and harvest. It determines the ebb and flow of the tides. It even has an effect on births. It’s also known to enhance hair growth and beauty. Just as the moon pulls the tides in the ocean, it pulls upon all bodies of water: This causes moisture to rise on earth, which encourages growth. It is this upward movement of water, cued by the moon, that is at the root of lunar hair care. After all, humans are made up mostly of water—and it makes up approximately 10 to 13% of our hair. Getting a scalp detox treatment, for example, in …

How to have Radiant Self-Confidence like a Goddess!

By Kristin Layne | August 12, 2021

Confidence is an inside job. Real, true, deep and lasting confidence cannot be attained by doing something on the outside or by getting lots of compliments and being liked by others. Sure, this might make you feel better about yourself temporarily, but as soon as the high wears off, if your confidence is not deeply rooted, then you’re gonna go back to feeling insecure waiting for the next person or achievement to lift you up. The key to having radiant self-confidence like a Goddess is to develop a positive relationship with yourself. Everything on the outside stems from the relationship you have with yourself. The extent to which you are able to forgive others depends on the extent to which you are able to forgive yourself. The extent to which you are able to love others depends on the extent to which you are able to love yourself. The extent …

Celebrate Yourself!

By Kristin Layne | July 6, 2021

You are Amazing!! Take a moment to celebrate yourself! You deserve it! It’s almost become normal to punish ourselves while we’re in pursuit of our goals with negative thoughts like “I’m not there yet” or “It’s not perfect”. We need to flip the script on those self-defeating thoughts and learn to celebrate the small wins. Take a moment right now, celebrate how far you’ve come. You are doing an awesome job at life (even if you don’t feel like it). Stop waiting for the major monthly holidays and learn to celebrate yourself daily. I love this quote by Oprah Winfrey: “The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” The reality is that we live in a fast-paced world. We are taught that “accomplishment” means getting as much done in a day as you possibly can. However, too many of us don’t take …

The Power of Gratitude Shifts Everything

By Kristin Layne | June 1, 2021

I totally manifested this move! For months I spoke about my dream of having a bigger house, a separate space for my business, for my kids to have their own room and more space for our beloved Hero. I was clear on, in my journaling every morning, about this dream of the specific things I wanted for my family.  I wasn’t clear on when or how this would happen, but I knew the Universe heard my request and my job is to always stay in the vibrations of joy and gratitude so the Universe can get to work.  DID SHE EVER!!!  On April 13th, I was on a zoom call with a friend and “the dream” came up in the conversation, after I logged off, I received an email from our property manager that the owner of our house had decided to sell and we would need to be out by the …
