We are mineral deficient. And the main culprit in this disturbing nutritional trend is soil depletion.
Unfortunately, modern agricultural methods have stripped increasing amounts of nutrients from the soil in which the food we eat grows. Worse yet, each successive generation of fast-growing, pest-resistant produce is truly less good for you than the one before (*Scientific American).
The key to healthier produce is healthier soil. That's why buying organic is important. However, that may not be enough. To ensure my body absorbs the nutrients it needs, I take Dr. John Gray's Mars Venus Super Minerals. This vitamin offers a large amount of minerals for healthy brain chemistry, preserving memory and helping you feel happier each day. It contains potassium, calcium, Vitamin D3, magnesium, zinc, chromium, lithium, boron, ginger root powder, apple cider vinegar powder and Ionic AlfalfaTM, and is delivered directly into my cells. Coupled with other important supplements, I feel confident my ever-so-boring annual doctor checkups will continue to be boring. Which, as my doctor says, is actually quite perfect.
While item is shown bundled with other products from Dr. John Gray, I am happy to order the single bottle of Super Minerals for you if you like.
I am not sure what I love most about this bag — the small size, the cone studs or that red tag!
How about the multiple ways to carry it.
Fendi brings a modern edge to this lightly structured small shoulder bag, featuring versatile detailing and fabulous color ways. The By the Way bag has flat straps on the sides that are perfect for sliding over your hand and carrying as a chic clutch, or use them as top handles for a sophisticated satchel-inspired style. Of course crossbody is certainly a great option.
The gray-blue color is delightful for spring, and all year round, for that matter.

If you didn't notice, the bomber made a big comeback this fall. And into spring it goes!
While there are many to choose from, I am most excited about these. Valentino, Saint Laurent and Kenzo bring on the style personality with bright, cheery colors and prints, just in time for spring. These lightweight jackets amp up any outfit, from jeans to flirty skirts. And if you happen to prefer dark solids, they have those, too.

There has never been a year when I haven't wished you Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
I missed every single one of those this time around and I feel horrible. Crazed and dazed I have been. Styling has been at an all-time high, the health component to my business continues to grow and add to that life in general — I got lost in it all. And I apologize.
I love heading into a fresh new year. 2017 is going to teach me a thing or two. Especially in time management. Making an impact, whatever the capacity, continues to be my focus. For my family. My friends. My clients. With my faith wrapped around them all.
As I forge ahead, I plan to take notes along the way to ensure I stay aligned with my purpose. It's that important to me. Not to bring on pressure. Just to hold myself accountable. In all areas of my life.
What has 2016 taught you? And what do you want to get out of 2017?

The last few months have been a whirlwind of styling. And in that time, I have come across some amazing pieces to help my clients step outside of the box and inject splashes of fun into their wardrobes.
Of course what we wear serves a purpose, a function. However, what we wear is also an extention of our personality. It's what we communicate to the world about us, a little bit at a time. Staying true to your individual style is important. But know, there is absolutely nothing wrong with adding a few surprises into the mix. The giddy factor is ever important.
This bold, color block coat in an argyle design does just that. MSGM got it right by providing both typical and atypical outerwear this season. Tailored in Italy from wool-blend felt, this cocooning style is finished with smooth satin lining that effortlessly slips over shirts, knitwear and dresses.
