Today is World Pancreatic Cancer Day.
I lost my beautiful mum only 2 years ago to this awful disease.
It has the lowest survival rate of all cancers, it’s also called the silent cancer as symptoms can go undetected.
Please please share the symptoms with family and friends, don’t let someone you love be diagnosed too late.

Everyone loves @crazysexykris and her love notes. 💖
I shuffle mine 7 times to receive the message.. If you're reading this.. this one’s for you. 🌈🏝 〰️ #UNPLUG 〰️ 🏝🌈
Recharge your soul batteries by unplugging from the digital world. Connect with yourself by disconnecting from distractions such as other peoples to-do lists. Take a stroll. The best way to generate fresh and new ideas is to balance the virtual and natural worlds. The birds in the trees have just as much to teach you as the Internet.
Another day, another delicious green juice! I ❤️ how I’m feeling on this #greendrinkaday challenge!!! I had forgotten how much a daily fresh pressed juice can impact my overall health and well-being. My energy has been amazing! Thanks @crazysexykris for the challenge! #kriscarr#crazysexyjuice#nekterjuicebar#nekter
“30 Days of Gratitude” Days 13 & 14 ::
I’m combining both of these because they go hand in hand.
10 years ago I walked into a local bookstore looking for a business book & while in that section, a book fell to the floor. I picked it up to put it back but before doing that I quickly scanned through the pages of it since that book had so many pretty graphics & pictures.
One particular page stood out to me & it was about why drinking dairy is so bad for humans. Everything about it made so much sense & it was written in an easy going/fun type of vocabulary. So I sat on the floor of the bookstore and kept reading different pages of the book.
Hours (which seemed like minutes to me) went by and I heard the announcement that the store will be closing in 30 minutes. I wanted to continue reading the book from cover to cover so I purchased it.
That book was Kris Carr’s Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips.
For Day 13, I am so grateful to have discovered Kris. Prior to that day I had never heard of her. That book was in the wrong section. I was in the business books section & that is a holistic health book. I felt it was meant for me to run in to that book since there’s no such thing as coincidences. I didn’t have cancer & the book is not just about cancer, but rather about living a healthy lifestyle which included drinking green vegetable juices.
Nowadays most people have heard of green juices since it’s so commercialized but 10 years ago it wasn’t mainstream.
🍐For Day 14, I am über grateful to have discovered green juices. In fact, 2 weeks after buying that book I bought a Breville juicer & started making my own green organic veggie juices at home.
That was the beginning of my journey with drinking green juices, green smoothies, wheatgrass shots & buying all organic foods. All of that became a health & life changer.
How are you choosing to ride on the roller coaster of life? Hands up in the air and cheering or holding on for dear life?
I've been a lover of roller coasters since I was a kid. My dad and I used to ride them together at Canada's Wonderland. And I was really hoping that my child would also love the thrill of the ride! Thankfully, as you can see from her smile, she loves them! My hubby, who's behind me, is less of a fan (he takes after his mom, who also wasn't as excited as we were). ❤❤❤
I believe that riding on the roller coaster of life is FUN and exciting! Even when things are really, really challenging, I have faith that it's all going to turn out for the best. Recently, I watched a great video with Marie Forleo and Kris Carr, where Kris overcame her lifelong FEAR of roller coasters. It was amazing to see her really face her fear (she would feel sick just thinking about going on the rides) and actually end up loving it!
This is such a metaphor for our lives. Sometimes the fear of something is worse than what that thing actually is. We let our minds tell us a story and create a fear that is much worse than reality. Today I invite you to face your own 'roller coaster' and find out if the reality is just as scary as the thought of it is.
I needed something to get me back on smoothies again, and guess what!?! Kris Carr to the rescue!
Kris is amazing when it comes to food and has started a Smoothie a day challenge to help people get started.
I made this one myself, and if you follow me you'll see the recipe later on in my book. All inspired by the outstandingly wonderful Kris Carr!
If you are in need of smoothie recipes for this challenge. I highly suggest one of Kris Carr's books! I started as many of you know learning from Crazysexyjuice, which is amazing. She has more books though, so look them up today.
Seriously this is the worlds BEST appetizer! I have been making it for years and it is always a HIT! It's from the Crazy Sexy Kitchen cook book, so it is dairy free and super healthy! Great for holiday entertaining🍸🍷!

I’ve had a Self Love weekend! Yesterday I went with my friend to an amazing workshop with @badyogiofficial, I then spent the evening eating good food and watching a film.
Today I start my day with meditation and spending the day learning about crystals for my Crystal Healing course then I’m meeting a friend later and going to the cinema. I’m finishing my evening dog sitting for my dad so they’ll be lots of doggy photos later.
How are you spending your Sunday?
A year ago today was my first Beautiful You Coaching Academy Inspiration Day. I finally got to meet the amazingly beautiful @julesyparker on my trip to San Francisco with @parfaitnotperfect. I also had my first face to face coaching session with @designingherlife whilst hiding from the seagulls on the pier!
We all met again this year in Paris and made more unforgettable memories on a boat on the Seine!
We’re soon to meet again in December on our trip of a lifetime to Australia. I simply cannot wait, excited is such an understatement!

it's Friday, juice what's left in my fridge day. carrots and purple cabbage is all I got left 😉. Kris Carr has a #greenjuiceaday over the holidays. I'm going to take the challenge, will you? It might not be a green juice. It might be what's left in the fridge that day but it's progress not perfection.
