– It’s Time To Become Better Caretakers of Ourselves

A Self Care Portal & Health, Beauty, Fashion & Gift Online Mall

“It’s time to become better caretakers of ourselves.” ~ Pam Jones, Innovator and Creator of

Caretaker: one that gives physical or emotional care and support. ~ Merriam Webster Dictionary

Selfcare Taker: a person who regularly gives physical, mental, and emotional care, upliftment, and support to themselves on an inner and outer level. ~ Pam Jones

That in a nutshell is what is all about.

Showing you the best and most effective ways to take care of and support YOU on a physical, mental, and emotional level, both inside and outside.

“If I am not good to myself, how can I expect anyone else to be good to me?” ~ Maya Angelou

We are living at a time when it is more important than ever before to care for ourselves on every level.

“There are days I drop words of comfort on myself like falling leaves and remember that it is enough to be taken care of by myself.” ~ Brian Andreas

Being a Selfcaretaker means that you make self care an important priority in your daily life.

It means that you make a conscious effort to empower yourself daily by fueling yourself with routine practices which improve your physical, mental and emotional health and well-being.

“I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival.” ~ Audre Lorde

There is an age old saying:

“As above, so below.”

“As above, so below; as below, so above.” ~ The Kybalion

“The verse, ‘As Above, So Below’ (also known as the Principle of Correspondence) , is one of the 7 Hermetic principles as described in the book – The Kybalion. ~ Excerpt from Out of Stress website

What this hermetic principle means in the most basic of terms is who you are on the outside reflects or corresponds with who you are on the inside and vice versa.

Note: The vice versa is equally important.

Vice Versa: used to say that what you have just said is also true in the opposite order ~ Cambridge Dictionary

Example of vice versa:

“As above, so below; as below, so above.” ~ The Kybalion

*I make this distinction because the equally important vice versa part of this hermetic principle is sometimes forgotten.

“Every change you have ever desired in your life has its inception from within. As within; so without. Beautify your inner universe and see the reflection of this abundance in your life experiences.” ~ Sanchita Pandey, Lessons from My Garden

To take that wonderful Sanchita Pandey quote a step further by adding the vice versa…

…beautify your outer universe and your outer self and see this same beauty reflected in your inner life.

I emphasize this point because being a Selfcaretaker of your whole self means that the inner self is as equally important as the outer self and vice versa….

…so an authentic Selfcaretaker takes care of both the outer self as well as the inner self.

Many people very falsely believe the focus on the outer self to be unimportant or superficial…

…yet how we choose to groom and present ourselves to the outer world on a daily basis plays a very big part in how we inevitably feel about ourselves, which means it also impacts our inner world.

It means that you take your personal grooming and your own unique personal style seriously.

Think about it:

How do you feel when you step out into the world after making an effort in your grooming and appearance?

How do you feel when you step out in that stylish new outfit you just bought?

How do you feel when you first step outside after leaving the hair salon or the barber shop?

How do you feel when you dress up for a date night with your partner?

How do you feel when you wear that pretty nightie or that stylish PJ set when you go to bed at night?

How do you feel when you wear that gorgeous new lipstick color, eye shadow or bronzer?

How do you feel when you step out of the house with gorgeous and glowing skin?

How do you feel when you step outside of the house smelling really good because you’re wearing a great smelling perfume or after shave/cologne?

How do you feel when you step out wearing that stylish coat or jacket, those cool shades, that funky hat, those killer shoes, those smoking boots, or that eye-catching hoodie?

I could go on and on.

Do you now see how your outer self and outer persona can positively impact your inner self aka your feeling of self worth, self confidence, and self esteem?

It’s not about copying or duplicating fashion trends.

It’s about taking the time to develop your own unique style and one of a kind persona so that you can embody and revel in being a stylish and appealing version of YOU when you’re in the outside world.

“Style is something each of us already has. All we need to do is find it.” ~ Diane von Furstenberg

Most people have no idea the positive impact that personal grooming and embodying a chosen style of dressing which feels perfect for them has on their mental and emotional well-being.

How you feel about yourself is typically projected in how you groom and style yourself.

When we step outside the door of our homes, we become a walking billboard projecting how we really feel about ourselves.

“Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.” ~ Oscar de la Renta

It’s not about being a fashion plate or dressing to the nines. It’s not even about how others perceive us, at least not primarily.

Paying attention to how we groom and style ourselves is primarily about improving our feelings of self worth and self confidence, both which plays a huge role in our mental and emotional well-being.

To put it simply:

When we look good or well put together, we tend to feel good.

This is the reason why the products, tools and resources featured on go far beyond what is traditionally promoted as self care.

“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” ~ Carl Jung

“My thing was always about individuality and about creating a world – because you don’t just wear clothes, you live a life. You have style. You project who you are.” ~ Ralph Lauren

First things first….

…following is what I believe is the #1 recommendation related to getting in touch with and on the road towards healing your INNER self:

“We may define therapy as a search for value.” ~ Abraham Maslow

As I’m sure you all know, we are living through some extremely stressful, really challenging, and very difficult times right now.

FYI, this is the primary reason why I created because I wanted to help as many people as possible as we all go through these really challenging and chaotic times.

“Be a lamp or a lifeboat or a ladder- Help someone’s soul heal.” ~ Rumi

Because therapy can be an important tool in terms of achieving help and healing…

….I would like to make the following 2 excellent therapy recommendations for anyone who might need them.

“Through therapy and a lot of thinking and writing my memoirs, I’ve been able to use my life as a lesson.” ~ Jane Fonda

For those of us who aren’t legendary actresses or members of royalty…

….thankfully with the advent of the internet, receiving good and effective therapy is now much more accessible and affordable for the masses. 🙂

“If you are not happy with something, you should change it. So I went to a lot of therapy, and finally, I am able to speak up for myself: You are going to hear me roar!” ~ Katy Perry

If you don’t have access to good therapy via your health insurance, if you don’t have health insurance, or if traditional therapy is out of your price range…

…the following two excellent and affordable therapy resources may help and benefit you or a loved one a great deal.

“Look, I didn’t want to go to therapy when I started going, I was like, ‘no, I’m good, I don’t need that, but to be honest, I’m happy I went. I’m happy I forced myself to go when I didn’t always want to go. Because I felt so much better when I left.” ~ Michael Phelps, an American former competitive swimmer. He is the most successful and most decorated Olympian of all time with a total of 28 medals.

(1) Frequently seen featured and recommended on CBS broadcast stations, Online is a therapy platform based purely on Science.

Their excellent online therapy program is based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (C.B.T.). 

“There are a variety of techniques to help people change the kind of thinking that leads them to become depressed. These techniques are called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.” ~ Irving Kirsch Ph.D., American psychologist and lecturer at Harvard Medical School

C.B.T. has been developed on the idea that our thoughts (head) are what cause our feelings (heart) and behaviors, not external stimuli like people, situations and events.

C.B.T. is one of the most commonly used methods for treating mental health issues and problems.

Studies show that online therapy based on C.B.T. is just as effective as traditional face-to-face therapy.

Online offers you a complete Happiness Toolbox.

“I believe that the therapist’s function should be to help people become free to be aware of and to experience their possibilities.” ~ Rollo May, the influential founder of Existential Psychotherapy in the United States and a co-founder of Humanistic Psychology with Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers.

A Note About The Volatile and Chaotic Times We Are All Currently Living In:

“All of us might wish at times that we lived in a more tranquil world, but we don’t. And if our times are difficult and perplexing, so are they challenging and filled with opportunity.” ~ Robert Kennedy

But first you have to prepare yourself and get your mind, body and emotions into a space where you can meet the challenges and better see the opportunities in spite of the uncertainty and chaos.

And that is what is all about.

“I think you have to make time for yourself so that work doesn’t become the end-all be-all.” ~ Meghan Markle, (before she became the Duchess of Sussex)

Knowing that many people are having great difficulty coping and dealing with the immense stress, fear and anxiety of all that is going on in the world right now…

… was created to offer unique, effective and high quality tools and resources to help you to better deal with these extremely chaotic and volatile times which we are all living through at the present.

“You have to schedule and make time for your joy. Otherwise burnout is inevitable” ~ Michelle Obama

I don’t need to tell you that the times we are all now living through are extremely stressful, difficult and challenging for most.

What I do need to tell you is that in order for us to THRIVE in spite of the constant instability, uncertainty, and chaos will require us to de-stress regularly.

It will require us to focus like a laser beam on getting physically, mentally and emotionally healthier.

It will require us to engage in daily ME TIME via self care routines, rituals, and practices.

And it will require us to just take better care of both our inner and outer selves.

This is all vital if we wish to do more than just exist or cope, and if we wish to excel and succeed within these chaotic times because America and the world will be this way for quite a while and we must all learn to ADAPT to this semi-permanent chaos, challenge and instability so we can all THRIVE and hopefully SHINE in the midst of it all.

“The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it.” ~ George C. Scott

Please know that you have everything you need inside of you right now to handle these turbulent times or else you wouldn’t be here.

We were all born on whatever day and in whatever year we were born on and in to live through the current very troubling times and that is for a reason.

Only you know or can figure out that reason for yourself. Nothing is a coincidence nor an accident, and that includes each and every one of our lives, so please hang in there.

“Remain calm, serene, always in command of yourself. You will then find out how easy it is to get along.” ~ Yogananda

On that note…

….I would like to begin by offering 2 Free Tools which will immediately help anyone who needs to achieve that illusive calmness and serenity right now. 🙂

Free Gift #1: With all that is now going on, there are MANY people living under a great deal of STRESS right now.

Chronic Stress can be DEADLY, and that’s no joke.

For example, did you know there are almost 600,000 deaths caused by Heart Attacks each year in the U.S?

Again….600,000 deaths every year….most of them sudden death without warning…and that does not include the heart attacks which fortunately don’t end in death, but can have a long-term devastating impact on a life and/or family all the same.

What is a MAJOR culprit in developing heart disease and most other health issues and problems today?


Do you find it almost impossible to ever truly relax?

Do you need a way to remove the stress from your life on a daily basis which will calm your nerves and help you to cope with whatever chaos the world throws at you?

Stress is a common problem in the lives of many people. There’s so much going on and it becomes difficult to juggle everything all at once. The pressures make relaxing tricky at the best of times, causing all that stress to build up until it threatens to explode.

But stress can be brought under control…

….and Hypnosis can help you do it.

“There is only one corner of the Universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.” ~ Aldous Huxley

In addition to Hypnosis and Subliminal Programming being excellent self care tools to help to relieve stress, induce calm, and to improve and/or empower yourself in countless ways…

….adding high quality and really effective nutritional supplements, healing teas, and nutritious food choices to your daily regimen is also a MUST to better your physical health and well being.


….how you feel on a daily basis depends on what you do every day towards supporting your physical, mental and emotional well-being. That’s self care.

When you focus daily on all three…

….your physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being…

…you are a Selfcaretaker.

This brings me to the direct connection between mental health and gut health, which has been labeled by many medical researchers “The Gut-Brain Axis.”

“Research shows that the gut and brain are connected, a partnership called the gut-brain axis.

The two are linked through biochemical signaling between the nervous system in the digestive tract, called the enteric nervous system, and the central nervous system, which includes the brain. The primary information connection between the brain and gut is the vagus nerve, the longest nerve in the body.

The gut has been called a “second brain” because it produces many of the same neurotransmitters as the brain does, like serotonin, dopamine, and gamma-aminobutyric acid, all of which play a key role in regulating mood. In fact, it is estimated that 90% of serotonin is made in the digestive tract.” ~ Harvard Medical School June 2019


*That excerpt is from a 2019 Harvard Medical School article titled “Probiotics May Help Boost Mood and Cognitive Function” which you can read in full here.

Researching this topic was a major Ah-Hah moment for me.

Whenever I was nervous, anxious, upset, or felt any feelings of unease, low mood, or negativity…

…I would inevitably also have an upset or queasy stomach or experience major disruptions in my digestive system.

“Have you ever felt queasy before an interview? Do you feel butterflies when you are excited or about to give a speech in front of a large audience? Do you feel nauseous when confronted with foul smells or just by imagining pending doom?

All these are some outward manifestations of what you are feeling.

The brain sends signals to the enteric system through the gut-brain communication pathway, which might result in stomach upset when you feel overwhelmed or emotional.” ~ Excerpt from Longevity Technology article titled “Gut-Brain Connection: How Probiotics Can Improve Mental Health – March 2023

Again, fascinating.

So why does this happen?

To recap…

…according to Harvard Medical School, 90% of serotonin is made in the digestive tract, the stomach, the gut.

What is Serotonin?

“Serotonin is a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger) produced within the central nervous system (CNS) that contributes to feelings of happiness.” ~ Simply

“…contributes to feelings of happiness.”

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter.

What are neurotransmitters?

“Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that your body can’t function without. Their job is to carry chemical signals (“messages”) from one neuron (nerve cell) to the next target cell. The next target cell can be another nerve cell, a muscle cell or a gland.” ~ Cleveland

An extremely important point about Serotonin:

“A low level of serotonin in the brain is thought to be a cause of depression.” ~

And depression can lead to a countless number of catastrophic events and consequences in a person’s life and also for those who love them.

Depression is also a common precursor for suicidal ideation, thoughts, and tendencies.

*For those who would like to learn more about this important topic, I highly recommend the informative yet fascinating book titled “The Mind-Gut Connection: How the Hidden Conversation within Our Bodies Impacts Our Mood, Our Choices, and Our Overall Health” by Emeran Mayer MD which you can check out here at Book Lender.

So what can we do about this?

“In recent years, scientists have increasingly recognized the power of the gut microbiome in influencing physical and mental health. While the central nervous system or the brain regulates emotions, scientists now acknowledge that the gut’s enteric system is crucial in regulating emotions.

Scientists discovered the gut-brain connection that the real enteric and nervous systems are interconnected and influence one another.” ~ Excerpt from Longevity Technology article titled “Gut-Brain Connection: How Probiotics Can Improve Mental Health – March 2023

If we know that 90% of serotonin is produced by our digestive systems or guts…

….and we know that having a low level of serotonin can cause depression, low moods, anxiety, or at the very least can cause adverse changes in our moods or cause us to not feel happy or stable…

…shouldn’t a serious focus in our daily self care regimen be on supporting a healthier level of serotonin being produced in our digestive systems or guts and creating a healthy balance between the Gut-Brain Axis?

This brings me to the extremely important topic of Probiotics.

What are Probiotics?

“Probiotics are made of good live bacteria and/or yeasts that naturally live in your body. You constantly have both good and bad bacteria in your body. When you get an infection, there’s more bad bacteria, knocking your system out of balance. Good bacteria helps eliminate extra bad bacteria, returning the balance. Probiotic-supplements are a way to add good bacteria to your body.” ~ Cleveland Clinic

Here are some functions of Probiotics in the body:

*Boost the immune response of the body
*Produce substances such as neurotransmitters and vitamins that have health benefits for the body
*Help the gut’s microbiome return to its healthy state after experiencing disruption ~ Source: Longevity Technology

Probiotics have many beneficial and important health benefits, (including potentially helping to support and boost the immune system)…

…but the fact that they can possibly help to bring healing and balance to the Gut-Brain Axis to potentially support our mental health in addition to our gut health is a major reason why taking an excellent probiotic supplement daily should be an important part of everyone’s self care regimen.

“Probiotics can do more than improve your gut health. They also may indirectly enhance your brain, too.” ~ Excerpt from 2019 Harvard Medical School article titled “Probiotics May Help Boost Mood and Cognitive Function”

“Current studies on the effects of probiotics supplementation on mental and physical health showed that it could help maintain a healthy gut, increase the diversity of the microbial population and improve mood or reduce symptoms of depression.

Improving the gut’s health would help the good bacteria produce neurotransmitters that enhance mood and prevent depression.” ~ Excerpt from Longevity Technology article titled “Gut-Brain Connection: How Probiotics Can Improve Mental Health – March 2023

*One of the many goals of is to inspire every woman to treat themselves as the Goddess or Princess they already are, deep down inside.

“Deep in every heart slumbers a dream, and the couturier knows it: every woman is a princess.” ~ Christian Dior

This is not about putting on airs, being full of yourself, being condescending, or being spoiled.

It’s simply about raising your own view of YOU…

….and your outward appearance reflecting your raised view of yourself on the inside.

It’s about your inside and your outside reflecting YOU as a woman worthy of dignity, attention, and respect.

When that happens, you’re living in Goddess territory.

Michelle Obama – GODDESS

Fun Fact: Michelle Obama was one of the most educated First Ladies in U.S. history.

“With an education, you have everything you need to rise above all the noise and fulfill every last one of your dreams.” ~ Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama is also the most accomplished First Lady in modern history.

“A beautiful woman is a beautiful woman, but a beautiful woman with a brain is an absolutely lethal combination.” ~ Prabal Gurung, renowned Fashion Designer

This truth from Prabal Gurung is what Michelle Obama proved during her entire 8 years in the White House.

“If I can have any impact, I want women to feel good about themselves and have fun with fashion.” ~ Then First Lady Michelle Obama

*The book mentioned in the above video titled “Everyday Icon: Michelle Obama and the Power of Style” is a MUST-READ for women who wish to live their most powerful, their most passionate, and their most impactful life.

Here is an excerpt from the book’s description:

“Writing at the crossroads of politics and fashion, Kate Betts explains why Michelle Obama’s style matters, and how she has helped liberate a generation of women from the false idea that style and substance are mutually exclusive. Following the transformation of Mrs. Obama from her early days on the campaign trail to her first state dinner at the White House, Betts, a longtime fashion journalist and former editor in chief of Harper’s Bazaar, reminds us that while style can be expressed in what you wear, it is inextricably bound up in who you are and what you believe in. In a smart, breezy voice backed by extensive interviews and historical research, Betts shows how Michelle Obama’s bold confidence and self-possession have made her into an icon and transformed the way women see themselves, their roles, and their own style.” ~ From Book’s Description

And First Lady Michelle Obama’s impact on fashion was GLOBAL:

For example in 2015, First Lady Michelle Obama topped the list of celebrities British women admired most for their professional style.

Daily Mail – July 2015 – Rise of the Power Dresser!: Michelle Obama tops list of celebrities British women most admire for their professional style… beating Samantha Cameron and Victoria Beckham

How powerful were Michelle Obama’s fashion and style choices as First Lady?

This powerful….

First Lady Michelle Obama had a HUGE impact on the fashion industry’s profit margin which was unseen before with any previous first lady.

“Michelle Obama is a well-known trend-setter. But did you know that her fashion choices seem to move stock markets, too? That is the conclusion of an analysis by David Yermack, of the Stern School of Business at New York University, published by The Harvard Business Review. Mrs. Obama wears an outfit, and in (often times correct) anticipation that it will become the latest New Thing, the company that makes those clothes gets a healthy boost in its stock price. Professor Yermack found that the stock prices of 29 public companies — whose clothes Mrs. Obama wore in a total of 189 public appearances from November 2008 to December 2009 — experienced abnormally high returns. He estimates that the average value generated by any given appearance by Mrs. Obama was $14 million.” ~ The New York Times – October 2010

*That has never happened with a previous First Lady before Michelle Obama.

“Few models or celebrities make the kind of impact on company stock price that Michelle Obama does. The First Lady’s astonishing influence may be tied to the fact that consumers know she’s not paid to wear what she does, whereas they may subconsciously discount models’ endorsements as inherently corrupt.”

“Have all First Ladies had this effect?

No. Even fashion icons such as France’s Carla Bruni-Sarkozy do not. Bruni-Sarkozy, like many First Ladies, dresses mainly in one brand: Dior. Obama mixes couture with items anyone can buy at a mall—she famously wore J. Crew gloves while holding the Lincoln Bible at the Inauguration. Consumers flock to the stores, and even if they don’t buy what she wears, they often leave with something else.” ~ Harvard Business Review – November 2010

Goddesses typically have an inspirational figure when coming of age who acts as a guide to help them develop their own unique sense of style.

When Michelle Obama was growing up, one of her fashion and “Goddess” icons was Mary Tyler Moore of the Mary Tyler Moore Show.

“Personally, as a kid, I preferred The Mary Tyler Moore Show, which I absorbed with fascination. Mary had a job, a snappy wardrobe, and really great hair. She was independent and funny, and unlike those of the other ladies on TV, her problems were interesting. She had conversations that weren’t about children or homemaking. She didn’t let Lou Grant boss her around, and she wasn’t fixated on finding a husband. She was youthful and at the same time grown-up. In the pre- pre- pre-internet landscape, when the world came packaged almost exclusively through three channels of network TV, this stuff mattered. If you were a girl with a brain and a dawning sense that you wanted to grow into something more than a wife, Mary Tyler Moore was your Goddess.” ~ An excerpt from Michelle Obama’s outstanding memoir “Becoming” which you can pick up here at Book Lender

By the way….

……as of March 2019….

…..Michelle Obama’s record breaking memoir had already sold 10 million copies….

…..on track to *becoming* the best selling memoir in history. 

Los Angeles Times – March 2019 – Michelle Obama’s book has sold almost 10 million copies, on track toward a historic high for memoirs

“The success of the former first lady’s book helped German media company Bertelsmann SE, which owns American mega-publisher Penguin Random House, earn $20 billion in revenue last year, the most it’s taken in since 2007.” ~ Los Angeles Times – March 2019

The HillMarch 2019 – Becoming” by Michelle Obama Sells 10 Million Copies

“Michelle Obama’s publisher says the former first lady’s “Becoming” could be the “most successful memoir in history.”

The book has sold nearly 10 million copes around the world since it hit shelves in November, according to Penguin Random House.” ~ The Hill – March 2019

You read that correctly.

10 million copies sold world wide….

…..and they were reportedly sold within just 4 months after the memoir’s release.

Now that’s GODDESS POWER…..

….and I would like to make the case that Michelle Obama’s style and how she presents herself to the outer world played/plays a HUGE role in her unprecedented success and accomplishments as a First Lady, a record-breaking author and a mega-profitmaking fashion icon.

Doing research on this highly interesting topic…

….how well dressed and stylish the average woman used to dress decades ago on the streets of America really fascinated me.

And not just the women. The men too!

Even viewing photos taken during the Great Depression

…Americans had a certain style to the way they dressed on the street.

People not only had style, they had pride about the way they looked when they stepped out of the house.

Pride: a reasonable or justifiable self-respect. ~ Merriam-Webster


….America seems to have devolved instead of evolving it’s street style game, and I believe this unconscious devolution has played a huge role in how millions of Americans feel about themselves.

It should come as no surprise that before she became a Duchess…

….Meghan Markle’s street style was always on point.

Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex – GODDESS

Here are just a few out of many examples of Meghan Markle’s stylish and savvy street style game before she attracted the attention of a real-life Prince:

Whether walking down a sidewalk, crossing a street, sitting in a restaurant, going to a yoga session, or just walking her dog…

….Meghan dressed and styled herself in a way which said to the outer world “I really love and respect myself and I expect you to respect me too.” 

In a totally unpretentious way, Meghan actually looked like she believed she is worthy of attracting any man she wanted to attract…

…so is it any wonder that she ended up attracting the most sought after bachelor in the world at the time and a Prince on top of it?


Goddesses inspire feelings like the song in the following video in the men lucky enough to love them and be loved by them.

Sting – “She Walks This Earth.”

“She’s a soulful flower in the garden
She’s bobbing in the sunlight
And flirting with her eyes

The way she walks by
I see a wave of colour
Moving like an angel
Trailing butterflies

Give me water
Give me inspiration
I want to speak now, but I can’t find a word
So unforgiving is my infatuation
Now that I know she walks upon the Earth
She walks this Earth

I am restless and burning with desire
And every other heartbeat I beat just for her
I see her smiling
Full is my emotion
This is no illusion
But how can I be heard?” ~ Lyrics from Ivan Lins’ beautiful song “She Walks This Earth” performed by Sting 

Now that’s what’s REAL.

A Goddess doesn’t need nor desire to post “thirst traps” on social media nor to dress overtly provocatively when she walks out of her home in an attempt to try to garner compliments, dog whistles, or attention.

Her stylishly well put together and confident presence makes her stand out in a crowd and command attention without even trying to.

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” ~ Coco Chanel

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’m a very strong advocate of women and men looking their BEST when they present themselves to the outside world, however the focus at the moment is on my fellow women.

When you look your best, you will better feel that you are a Goddess…

…and when you look your best, you will act accordingly until one day you actually believe you are indeed a Goddess.

This is not about being drop dead gorgeous. It’s about presenting an image to the world which says I care about myself, I love myself, I respect myself….

….and I expect you to treat me the same way.

“We are how we see ourselves and we attract those who are on our same level.” ~ Pam Jones

It says I choose to meet a high bar for myself and this is not only projected via your image or appearance, it’s also projected in all areas of your life…in love, in career, and in your everyday life.

You’re basically raising your own bar across the board.

You are raising your game…

…and once you do that, your entire life game will be raised…

…and the quality of people you attract into your life will also be raised.

“Keep your heels, head and standards high.” ~ Marilyn Monroe

Just looking your stylish best will change perceptions and better let the world know who you are and how you expect to be treated…

….but the most important person who will perceive you differently and treat you better is YOU.

“Never dull your shine for somebody else.” ~ Tyra Banks

Many women hide their light under a bushel or play down their looks and femininity because of feelings of low self-worth, low self-esteem, a fear of not being taken seriously in their profession, a fear of sexual harassment, or because of past traumatic experiences.

Many women believe they don’t have the capability to be attractive because someone or society has told them to not even try.

Here’s the thing:

EVERYONE can look their best.

EVERYONE can work to become better every day.

EVERYONE can raise their own bar.

Which brings me back to…

Meghan Markle – More Than Just An Actress

I have been fascinated with first Meghan Markle, the actress who was dating Prince Harry…

…and then Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex for years.

I even wrote an article for the popular global website Meghanpedia back in 2019 titled “How Meghan Markle Loved Herself Like Royalty Long Before Becoming A Duchess” which is linked here.

If has a “style muse” that person would be Meghan Markle, the actress, businesswoman, and humanitarian…

…and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.

Muse: a person or personified force who is the source of inspiration for a creative artist. ~ Google Dictionary

I separate Meghan Markle, the actress, business woman and humanitarian from when she married into the oldest monarchy on earth, because who Meghan was before

…is why she is now officially Princess Henry of Wales and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.

“She’s not necessarily a princess, but she’s carried herself on that level from Day One.” ~ Tom Markle, (Meghan’s half brother)

Why is it a big deal that Meghan Markle has captured the heart of Prince Harry, who was once the most eligible and most sought after bachelor on the planet?

Meghan Markle is from the U.S, an actress, divorced, three years older than Prince Harry and like Barack Obama is bi-racial, (half black and half white)…

….all of which would have been seen as many strikes against Meghan in terms of becoming involved with someone in the British monarchy….

….yet here we are. 🙂

Meghan’s love of style and fashion is definitely paying off big time now that she is Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.

….but of course that wasn’t always the case.

“I’ve always shopped on the sale rack, and I’ve always been the girl flipping through the hangers trying to find the best deal.” ~ Then actress Meghan Markle
