Multiple bestselling author, keynote and TEDx speaker, #1 podcast host, and queen of mastering your Mean Girl
Gossip, sweeping things under the rug, long emails (I like to get straight to the point), not taking responsibility for my actions and rushing.
Writing, interviewing the most epic humans on earth, speaking on stages, cooking, dancing, singing (badly), having a picnic with my girlfriends or smooching my husband.
I'm not about:
You can find me:
Meditation and visualization, morning cuddles and gratitude in bed with my handsome hubs, yoga, ocean swims, beach walks, nourishing food and sunshine.
I believe that we create our own reality moment by moment.
I have to be honest with you, though. I haven’t always been on this spiritual journey. In my ‘past life’ (as I like to call it) I was a professional dancer at the Moulin Rouge in Paris, actress, TV presenter, and the occasional model. I entertained quite a destructive path for many years which looked a lot like this...
Running around at a million miles per hour to avoid sitting with myself, moving around and living out of a suitcase, working way too much in order to 'feel' successful, not loving myself at all, I was highly stressed and anxious, drugs and alcohol were my go-to quick fixes, I was dealing with panic attacks and lived off champagne and canapés. And my anxiety would allow me on average four hours of sleep a night.
Living like this it was only a matter of time before my exhausted and run down body packed up and went on holidays.
Along with adrenal fatigue, thyroid problems, high levels of mercury, serious hormonal imbalances, depression, an eating disorder, loads of vitamin and mineral deficiencies, SIBO, hives, candida, adult acne, eczema all over my body and a serious case of the cold sore virus, my body was screaming at me to STOP. It was sending me loud, bright red, warning signs that it had had enough.
My entire immune system shut down and the severity of the cold sore virus sent me straight to the hospital. My life was a mess and I looked like a mess. I had cold sores all over my face, in my mouth and down my throat, I couldn’t eat, talk or even open my mouth. It looked like someone had taken a blow torch to my face.
We are all miracles. We are all so unique and have big beautiful hearts to share with the world. We all matter and that choosing love over fear is the best fun ever!
Looking back, it was such a pivotal moment for me as the one thing I needed in order to work was my body and that was no longer working.
It was the first time I realized that if you don't have your health you've got nothing and you can't do what you desire. It’s like the Universe was saying to me “you aren’t meant to be doing this anymore sweetheart and the only way you will listen is if we make you stop”. Got the lesson!
I realised I had no idea what self love was but I had to learn it quickly.
I realised I had to start to take radical responsibility for my own health and happiness.
I realised I was the only person who could make the shifts.
I realised that the decision to live my best life lay with me.
I realised I had to stop looking outside of myself to find happiness and start to connect with my inner self, my truth, my soul, my spirit, the bigger me.
Throughout my journey I realised just how out of balance my life was in all areas and how I was always looking externally instead of internally for happiness, acceptance and approval. I was experiencing extreme emotional highs and lows and I was on a constant roller-coaster ride of sugar highs and lows. It wasn’t fun! This sparked a thought within me, If I was feeling like this, how many other people out there must be struggling with the same thing?
So I studied at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to get my holistic health coaching certification. I did my yoga and meditation teacher training, I studied life coaching and Acu Energetics, I read every personal development and spiritual book I could get my hands on. I attended every workshop and seminar I could, and I became obsessed with sharing everything I was remembering. I could never have imagined what has unfolded for me since then. Stuff beyond my wildest dreams.
So, my darling - do you love yourself? I sure as hell didn’t! But I learned to fall in love with myself, how to look after myself and how to feed my mind, my body and my soul the best, most nourishing things Mother Nature has to offer. I learned how to master my inner Mean Girl and become Wildly Wealthy, Fabulously Healthy and Bursting With Love.
My intention is to empower you in all areas of your life, your health, wealth and love. To step up and to help you fall head over heels back in love with the Goddess staring at you in the mirror.
