Do you believe life is short or a really long time? We think it is both, long and short, and both call for you to enjoy your life! We want food and fashion to add to your enjoyment, not detract from it.
We work to find food and beauty that satisfies your body and mind. No pain—no gain is not our mantra. We want everyone to enjoy health and beauty and we make it a priority for our clients.
You feel better when you like your food and it nourishes and satisfies you. If you don’t enjoy your food, you will always be hungry for something.
If you hate kale, but eat it every day, you won’t get all the benefits kale has to offer. You will feel punished and deprived, you will be more likely to rebel, and you may undo any progress you have made from the punishment you endured—that is not enjoyable.
Fashion should feel comfortable, literally and figuratively. If your clothes are too tight you will be uncomfortable. If you are over-dressed or under-dressed, you will feel out of place. Both add stress and decrease your enjoyment in most situations. Additionally, you want to have pieces in your closet that make you happy and excited to get dressed every day!
Natalie’s HABIT: Add some frosting
While you probably won’t be eating frosting daily, you can add frosting to your outfits with a patterned scarf, a fun necklace, a pair of vintage earrings—anything that makes you happy and tells others a little about you. Accessories can be inexpensive, and, if you’ve simplified your wardrobe, mix and match with what you have to make outfits more interesting, versatile, and unique—just like you!
Becky’s HABIT: Limit the frost but not the flavor
Our last HABIT, progress NOT perfection ties into enjoyment, as it does with much of life. You cannot love everything you eat and everything you eat might not be the healthiest. When you work toward making food choices that are healthy, you want them to be tasty too. If your healthy choices taste good you will make PROGRESS that you can sustain to reap benefits today and in the future.
Have you heard of the 80/20 rule for eating? (This is not to be confused with Pareto 80/20 business rules.) When it comes to food, what you put in your mouth most days matters more than what you do once in awhile.
