3 Favorite Boxes That Will Keep You Fit, Stylish, and Prepared for Anything!

So you have a shopping itch, and an ultra busy schedule that keeps you on the run? Good news- I have a few ideas that could help you scratch that shopping itch and be fabulously prepared for last-minute gift giving. This will be HUGE with lots of gatherings, birthdays, showers, and holidays coming up...

In recent years, subscription service boxes have exploded into the mainstream marketplace. Should you consider getting one? The answer is more than skin deep.

As yourself these questions:
  • Do you destroy your budget with random purchases or stuff from Target's $5 bins? Through one of these subscriptions your extra spending is kept in line, because you've already budgeted for it, and it satisfies that need for novelty. If you're like me, you'll be much less tempted by this random emotional spending.
  • Are you often putting yourself last? By subscribing, you get a beautiful box in the mail filled with gorgeous gifts - so you've made it easy to get something "just for you"
  • Do often find yourself scrambling at the last second for trendy and unique gifts for your girlfriends? You'll be armed with giftable items that could be easily wrapped up and given as a gift at short notice, when you don't normally have time to shop or you get invited to holiday parties..

If you answered yes to any of these questions,  consider one of these three great boxes, and make sure to get the discount through these links and support the blog cause!

It's been so amazing being on this journey with you. What started as my personal blog 10 years ago has helped me reach women all over the world with my best thoughts on business, relationships, and health.

If you start seeing some success in your business, you'll probably do a happy dance.

3 Best Reasons to Join The Best Mastermind Group You Can Possibly Find

Before I even take a breath, I need to make sure you know what a true Mastermind is. So many business greats credit membership in a great Mastermind group as their #1 secret to tremendous personal shifts and rapid business growth. In fact, Napoleon Hill first gave the phenomenon a name in his timeless classic, Think And Grow Rich defining a Mastermind Group as, "The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony... No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind [the master mind]."

Now that you know what a mastermind is and how passionate I am about sharing this with you, it's time to share my...

3 Best NYC Day Trip Ideas

It's amazing living just close enough to the big apple to visit for a day! But sometimes it's a bit overwhelming to plan a decent trip there. Life is just so busy! And, after you've been to the city more than a few times like I have, the thrill of typical tourist stops inevitably wears off - making it even more challenging to justify a trip.

My husband and I are planning a trip to Hillsong Church this Sunday in NYC and area looking to maybe mix in one or all of the below!
